Happy early fourth of July – and also polls.

Hey. I am really out of it at the moment, but I wanted to come by and make this post – and put up the new polls. As I mentioned before, I will get the new side images done as soon as I can… but I didn’t get much sleep last night – so I couldn’t get much done today, I will see what happens over the weekend… but I am just drained at the moment, so it may be a bit longer still. Semi-important side note: in theory, my site has free SSL coverage again… and I think I have that working right – but there may be minor issues here and there, since I am not overly familiar with it. Please let me know if you find any problems, so I can fix them.

Anyways – for those of you that even celebrate it, Happy early fourth of July! (Please stay safe and don’t do anything stupid and/or dangerous – you are putting everyone at risk, not just yourself in times like this.)

As for the polls, last time I asked two things – first I asked if people checked patreon posts for pages that they did not subscribe to, and one person said yes, and one said maybe… but those were the only two votes. So, I am inclined to think that this is an idea that is at least worth testing… which will likely happen in the near future. 🙂 The second poll asked which of my ‘lesser’ main characters you liked best, and Delfina got three votes, while Nylavi got one – so clearly some people quite like Delfina, which is nice to see. 😀 (I will take this all under advisement for future content – Belle is more of an Xmas thing primarily anyway.) Sometime soon I also hope to get Delfina and Nylavi little bio sections on my “Characters” page up top… maybe sometime this month I will have the time/energy to do that; but there are already several other things that I want to try and fit in before that, so who knows.

In regard to the new polls – there are two again, and the first asks if you are looking forward to more story sets from me… for no particular reason. (Few people seem to actually read this anyway… but the very fact that this poll exists should tell the people who pay attention to my pages/posts something.) The second poll asks which of my pages you check most frequently – and you can pick the top three options from the ones listed. All of the best options are in the poll – so please let me know what your favorites are; there are two other crappy ones are not mentioned, for reasons that should be obvious. Any votes in those would be appreciated… and would almost certainly serve as incentive for me to do more of certain things on certain sites.

Last mini-set renders done – starting on the new preview soon.

Hi again! Sorry for the long gap in posts here – but my assorted surgeries two weeks back took more out of me than I thought… so now I am running very late once again. There wasn’t really much to say, and I was really out of it and tired for most of this month – so I couldn’t get much done. Only this week have I been back to normal, and I have just now finished all the renders for mini-set 69, and sent that out to appropriate patrons of mine; it ended up being 49 images, by the way. (Patrons also have an additional, early preview for that mini-set – as per usual.) I really like how that one came out – and had some good fun making it, so hopefully everyone else will like it too. 😀 An additional preview for mini-set 68 (Lucia/Nylavi) has also been posted in the master catalog here, as well as in the original post for that mini-set, below.

I will start work on the next mini-set tomorrow, and try to get that preview ready in time for the end of the month. I am really going to try and get back on schedule next month; I think I would have done so this month, had I not needed those minor procedures done. There is one other thing I have wanted to work on, but so far been unable to… so I really hope I can finally find time for that next month, but we will see if something else comes up. As far as the new side renders go – those will have to be postponed a bit, until early next month; I am too far behind schedule at the moment to do those right now… and I need to figure out what I want to do for most of them anyway. I also have not decided if I will post them on DA – as I am still just totally disgusted by their lack of regard for their artists/members.

Anyway – I will be back in a couple days with a new mini-set preview, and the polls on the right could really use more votes… as the results of both of those will definitely be taken into consideration. One of those in particular might play into what I decide to do with one of the new side renders that I am making soon… and the other may lead to more special public stuff being posted on my Patreon page!

Also, a quick reminder that I have that special offer running on my Patreon page until the end of July, the details of which are posted below!

Status update: 6/12

Hi. I am back with a small status update – though there is not much new to report on just yet. I am still working on the current mini-set renders, and that will likely be another week still, based on the previous two months. (I really am trying to get them done sooner – it just keeps turning out this way somehow.) We will have to see what else I have time for once that gets situated… I just have not had enough time to work on much else these past few months, with all the complicating factors. I have a bunch of things related to this project that I would like to do… but I just need to get the time for it.

As for other stuff – I do plan to get some side renders done this month… but I don’t know if I will post them on DA anymore; the “new” eclipse layout is just so fucking terrible. I presume their total site traffic has halved at least due to that mess; since very few people seem to have been checking my DA page since that update… and that is compared to what I normally got there before. (I also know several artists that have effectively quit the site over it.) That forced update also really shows a clear lack of regard for their users, and especially the artists; since most of the worst parts of eclipse relate to managing content. I did also list all currently retired mini-sets on my gumroad page, so that is available up top for anyone interested. More votes in the polls on the right here would be nice as well – as I may even use one of those characters in a side render… we will see what happens a bit later on. Anyway – I will be back soon with another update of some sort… but in the mean time, check out the special offer on my Patreon page if you haven’t already!

Prior mini-set renders done at last; new preview posted/coming shortly.

Hey. I know I am running really late this time – but I did finally finish the mini-set renders from the Lucia/Foxgirl mini-set. (I named her Nylavi by the way – and I plan for her to appear in later content in some form… much like Delfina; I will see about adding entries for them over on the “Characters” page sometime soon.) Side note, I had a strange amount of issues with this mini-set… several things that have either never happened before or happened very rarely started over the last few days – making this take a bit longer than I would have liked. I had… scratches(?) on one render – like… actual noticeable holes in the middle of the scene for no reason that I could discern… as best I can figure, there is some truly bizarre mesh problem with the hair that I am using for Nylavi – but I will check that and possibly fix it at a later date. (I have literally never even heard of this happening before… really strange – caught me totally off guard.)

Long story short, the mini-set ended up at 40 images total – and that just got sent out to appropriate patrons of mine a short while ago. I didn’t quite get all that i wanted to in with this mini-set… due to constant migraines, time constraints, and technical problems. However, that tends to happen at times, and especially when I am running so late to begin with… I do like how it came out though – despite all the constant/strange issues near the end. Also, I have been putting way, way too much in these “””mini””” sets for a while now… (these were originally supposed to be like 4-10 renders each…) but that is just how things tend to work out. 🙂 I already have a rough plan for the next mini-set preview… and I just hope that I can finish that in time; as I don’t have long to get that sorted. (Should be ok, I think – I already know what I want to do, which is usually the hard part.)

I also did post the second public preview for the bunnygirl/farmer mini-set from last time; that is over/down in the original post for that, and also on the master catalog. So check that out if you are interested… which you should be – it’s pretty nice. 🙂

Anyway – check back in a couple days for the new mini-set preview, and do check out my Patreon page if you like my work and want to consider supporting me and perhaps getting access to the current batch of mini-sets! https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart

Some new previews of old things.

Hi again. I hope everyone is still safe/sane during this coronavirus mess. I am still working on the mini-set renders – and I need to redo one little bit in the patreon bonus render with Zayla in it; so it will still be a little longer on those. (I’ve had weather-related migraines for over a week straight now; so my progress has been limited.)

However, I came by to post a few old bonus mini-set previews that used to be exclusive to my Patreon page – from like a year ago, back when I first considered/tested posting two previews of each mini-set. These three previews somehow never got posted on here, or anywhere else that I am aware of – so I came by to post them on the master catalog, and also in the full version of this post linked below after the read more tag. (And also on slushe, etc.) They were exclusive on my Patreon for over a year – and I am sure they will do more good as public previews, now that the mini-sets in question are all long since retired. All modern second previews are posted publicly after a month or so… so it is high time these got posted too.

If you like any of these, consider buying the full mini-sets over on my gumroad, here: gumroad.com/redleatherart (more information on the mini-sets is over on the master catalog, here: https://redleatherart.com/wp/?page_id=2758)

Status update: 5/11

Hey. I am still working on the newest mini-set, and the weird weather over the past few days left me mostly unable to work on this from all the migraines. I am hoping to have it done a week from now… but we will just have to see what happens – I will do the best I can; but circumstances right now are a bit of a mess. So far, so good though… for whatever that means; people on DA seem to really like the new foxgirl character – and I do plan to have her be a recurring side character at the minimum, like Delfina from the mini-set two months back.

Anyway though – the Patreon May special poll is over, and it is likely no surprise that Zayla won again… and I am looking forward to making that once I get a good idea for it, and have to render time to spare. That will get posted to all my Patrons, and stay on my Patreon page exclusively… so if you want to see that, and all the other exclusive stuff I have under the “special” category over there, check out my Patreon page here: https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart

Maybe new May polls.

Hey. It’s a new month, and therefore I have new polls as well as the results from the previous polls. There were are least some votes in the polls this time around; which is nice compared to the previous month… but still not that many for whatever reason. Thanks to those who voted… and at the very least I can tell those who voted were the ones who care enough about my work to do so. (Even if the total votes don’t actually match up with the number of voters… some people apparently didn’t pick three answers as it said to.) Also, I want to mention that I posted the May Patreon special poll last night – which will run through the 10th; which will decide the subject of a new patron-exclusive special image that I will make later this month for all my tiered patrons. So do check that out, if it applies to you; and if not, maybe consider supporting me and changing that! 😀

The first poll last month asked what your favorite types of adult content were… oddly enough the winning response was image sets; which is somewhat surprising. Games and movies tied for second place, and short animations, story sets, and individual images tied for third. The second poll from April asked what you though were the most important aspects of a female character – and no real surprise that body shape came in a clear first place. Sexual preferences/ability came in second, and race/skin tone as well as clothing preferences came tied for third place. Some interesting things to consider from all that… and I will keep that in mind when making future content.

As for the new polls, there are two again… the first asks if you prefer recurring (main) characters or mostly one-off (side) characters in adult content; and the second asks what your favorite finish is to an adult scene – with assorted choices. Do let me know your preferences there… and I will be back with at least a status update in a week or so at the outside. Also keep in mind that I am still looking for feedback regarding my work – so leave comments on the respective DA/slushe journal entries, or even comment on here with what ideas/fetishes/characters you are looking forward to seeing from me! 🙂 Stay safe everyone!

Previous mini-set renders finally done, new mini-set preview soon.

Hi again. Sorry this is a bit later than I wanted – but I managed to put a lot into the bunnygirl mini-set… 46 images in total! I even got to put in the one final bit that I usually have to leave out due to lack of time or energy. I think it all came out really nice, and I just sent that out to appropriate patrons of mine, along with the other current rewards. I will now move on the the new mini-set… and that will get done and posted in the next week or so sometime! I did go ahead and post the second preview for the previous month’s mini-set publicly – which in this case refers to the Faye/Delfina mini-set… so you can check out that second preview either in that original post for it below or over on the newly updated master catalog up top. 😀 (It’s really nice.)

In other news, things are going well so far with Poser Pro 11 (I finally upgraded earlier this month… I think I forgot to mention that here) – it is way faster to search with at the bare minimum, which helps a lot; we will have to see how the other improvements pan out as it goes. (The Poser software got a new/good owner last year… a rather stark contrast to what happened to DAZ several years ago – and that continuing downward spiral.)  I did also post the newly retired mini-set (the solo Tabitha bath one) onto my gumroad page, and I have the next one ready to go, as that will be retired in a little over week. There have been some votes in the polls – but more would really be nice; these in particular I would like responses to. I am also still leaning towards going ahead with that special offer soon-ish… but I will give that some more thought before the end of this month, and we will see what happens. I am also considering another small bonus thing for my patrons in the near future – so there is a lot of stuff in the possible column there. 🙂

Anyways, check back in a couple days for the new mini-set preview, and do check out my Patreon page if you like my work and want to consider supporting me! https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart

Happy Easter, new DA/slushe stuff posted!

Hey again. I went ahead and finished/posted the new DA/slushe stuff – one of the two new images is the new one I made for Easter. (Which is why I chose to finish these now instead of later this month – and it is technically on time…) The other new side image is social distancing themed, and you can go check that out if you are interested.

For the random drawing I tried to do, none of the three winners replied within the three days – so I guess that just is not happening. I gave it more than a fair shot – three draws, multiple advance warnings, and plenty of time… not entirely sure what went wrong. Again, I am going to just hope/assume that the lack of responses is due to the coronavirus somehow… but it is still quite depressing. Due to this, I am putting off all other things like that until much later… when things will hopefully be better. (I tried.)

Regarding main rewards, that will likely be in another week or so; I wish I could say later this week, but I really doubt that will happen. I am still a bit behind and rather drained at the moment… but I will do the best I can. Things are just a bit messy right now due to the lockdown here and assorted issues I am having all around. I plan to take a day to recover a bit before going back to finish the mini-set renders. I will send out early rewards to any new patrons though… if that happens in the mean time.

Otherwise, I still am still planning to bring back my special offer from last year at some point soon – not sure when yet. Check back later and I may have more information on that… but it may even be next month, again – not exactly sure. I should be back again in a week or so with something either way.

April polls.

Hey. I am back with some new polls – which are repeats of old polls that I am revisiting… at least partly because nobody really voted in the last set of polls. One of the last two polls had no votes at all – which is quite disappointing… and the other poll let me know that at least the few people that voted seem to like the extra details and such in renders; which I usually try to put in. As for the new polls – one asks what your favorite types of adult content are, and the other asks what the most important aspects of a female character are – with both polls you can pick three different options. It would be nice to get some significant number of votes in these polls… I already wonder if people like most of what I make/post as it is – this is certainly not helping.

Also, I did have to go ahead and do a second roll for the raffle I was trying out – we will see if this person responds within the remaining time that they have to do so… not really sure what I will do if this does not work a second time; I really never thought this would be a problem… and it makes me totally rethink any/all raffles that I was considering – as does the lack of votes in the polls. We will see what happens, and I should be back with some kind of update next week. I hope everyone stays safe during this whole coronavirus mess.
