Because of the unbearable weather we have been having, I am still working on the first commission I took, which should have been done by now. In a little over a week, San Diego had not one, but TWO heatwaves… with temperatures in the mid to upper 90s, and almost a zero humidity index. This spells disaster for a city known for its perpetual drought and wildfires. In fact, last I checked yesterday, there was some 20,000 acres of wildfires still burning in San Diego County. I live in the geographical equivalent of a tinderbox, which seems ironic considering we’re next to a big fucking ocean. Go figure.
Anyway, the temperatures in my “office” (read: my apartment) were too hot to bear on those days, so I was forced to seek out places with air conditioning and just hide from the sun. I would work a little in the evenings, rendering if the temperature was okay (because the GPUs kick of MASSIVE amounts of heat when
May is upon us, and still no word on the release of Octane 2.0 (promised by the end of April). Since the release of Wish You Were Here, we’ve been deciding whether we should move on to another dossier, or take a bunch of commissions to tide us over until the huge Octane update. Another dossier would be a lot of fun, but what I really want to do is jump back on Clara Ravens Ep. 4: Colombina’s Illusion the moment Octane 2.0 and the Poser plug-in are available. And if I start a new dossier, it will take a month to finish, meaning I’ll probably be mid-project when the plugin releases, delaying the return to work on CR4 (well, assuming Octane developer Otoy doesn’t take yet another month on this).
Have you ever wondered what it would be like if Clara had a weekly appointment to service big black cocks through a glory hole in some filthy pub men’s room? I imagine it would look something quite a bit like this.
This was a commission requested by one of my ‘regulars’, so to speak. I had a ton of fun setting this one up, especially the custom graffiti/wall/stall textures. This whole image was 12 hours of setup, 3 hours of rendering, and about an hour of postwork. Hope you like it!
In other news, we got a BIG announcement coming next week that will likely surprise you, but will hopefully also be music to your horny ears (wait… what?). However, before the gossip starts, let me just state that the announcement is not regarding Clara Ravens Episode 4: Colombina’s Illusion. So there’s that…
Enjoy the rest of your weekend, everyone!
