As promised I would post the definite release date today. I had hoped to say the 30th of november.. but the last pages are being a drag. Every page I’ve rendered today i’ve been rerender with issues or fixing the renders. Misbehaving stockings, Hugo’s head suddenly has some red kryponite in there. So it’s slowing me a lot.
Together with the normal work week i have next week, I just can’t garantee the release this November.
I’m sorry. I tried what I could. I’m still 12 renders out minimal, audio and postwork stuff to do.
That doens’t mean i’m not aiming for the first releasedate possible. But to be sure everything will be ready, I’m setting the release back to the 9th of December. That’s 2 weeks from now. It should give me the time to get everything ready. Should it be ready earlier… i’ll release it asap.
Again sorry, but that’s unfornately what I have also noticed with Epoch, sometimes you get 6 renders a day right at once.. sometimes.. you’re glad when you get one page like it should because of issues.
*UPDATE* 2 DECEMBER 22:30 PM local time.
Like I said before I can only work on the weekends, so only today I can pose some new renders and stuff and postwork, add the renders to the comic, ect.
All finished renders have been added. Most renders till to do have been posed. So I expect to render a lot in the coming days.
The kryponite and stockings still being a drag on postwork, even had some weird ass breaks on all the bends on Hugo. But a new render fixed that. But i’m definitely nearing the end.
Clara as she’s in the comic… keeps distracting though …
Hopefully i get can all posing done tonight.. so it can render most of tommorrow.
Then it’s audio time. Wish me luck.
p.s. Added image that won’t be used because the expression wasn’t right for the frame. (Changed the scene). So enjoy and thanks for all the kind words. Normally I would respond, but i’m a bit busy at the moment.
At the momemnt due to a very few weeks at my full time job, I can only work on the weekends, so that doensn’t help progress. I’m hoping to release on the end of November.
To help it further along, I taken day off next week en 2 days the week following. Hopefully I can get the planning back on track.
After that weekend, I should be able to annouce when the definite release is.
Thanks you for you patience and your continued support. Just a quick tease to wet the appetite.
* UPDATE 19 NOVEMBER *
Well wednesday and this weekend did a lot of work. Fixed a lot of mistakes I made last week. It slowly getting there. But still over 40 renders and all audio to do.
The Project sliders on the side have been updated just now.
Hopefully next weekend I can give you guys a definite releasedate.
*UPDATE 21 October 2017*
For the preorder I added a teaser 1 frame of the comic and the wallpapers and turntables. So you at least have something for your money.
Had to go into every order to add it. So if I missed your order, please contact me at support at(@)epoch-art.com
You can download it for the Store, My Account menu.
Enjoy and thanks for your support.
We are, for the fourth or fifth time now, back underway on Clara Ravens Episode 4: Colombina’s Illusion – Part II. I am putting all of my effort into finishing it this time out. There are many, many pages of the script left to render, and we have barely started on sound effects. None of the animation is done, either. So we still have a monumental undertaking ahead of us, but I have committed myself to late nights and long weeks in order to get this thing finished and released so I can move onto more projects in the Dark Rift universe (which is really where my passion is these days).
I will release what I can in the way of teasers. I’ll likely reveal at least one of the bundled wallpapers (in a smaller format) like I did for the previous release, but there won’t be much else. So I may end up just rendering random stuff or doing smaller commissions here and there just to keep you all engaged with new content. The comics can be a slog, so please bear with me. These things are a lot of work and, as you all know, CR4 is/was the most ridiculously ambitious project we’ve done.
I hope you like the cover. I’ll post more stuff soon. Enjoy your weekend, everyone!
RANDOM OFF-TOPIC: Anyone playing the ‘early access’ PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds? I’ve been squadding up with Xipomus and some other friends, and just going it solo here and there too. That game is fucking incredibly addictive. Best game solo was three kills, and best rank was 11th place so far. I’m really not too good at the game, but I can’t stop playing it!
