Category: Image Sets
I’ve been working on this set for longer than I care to say, and then today I scrapped the first three renders because I was just not happy with a lot of the stuff. The elephant was too shiny, the foliage’s subsurface scattering was too intense, the lighting was too fake-looking, etc….. I should mention that this is the first set we’re doing since upgrading to the latest version of the Octane plugin and a lot of shit has changed.
Here’s the first of several promotional images I’ll post over the next couple days for Dossier 007: Legacy of the Batutut. I’ll be set building next week as well as finishing off the Batutut, who are the characters that Clara will be facing off against.
I know that I had promised that Xip and I would collect all the poll data and come up with several concepts for a second round of voting to come up with a winner for the next dossier concept, but I came up with a concept almost right away and wanted to see if it would be viable for a dossier. The experiment involved growing fur on a bunch of Planet of the Apes-type simian character meshes.

As SDCC steadily approaches (July 8th – July 12) and my income just as steadily wanes, I find myself once again having to add the dreaded “ripcord date” to my project calendar. I was paid out from my other markets for my April sales and things are not looking so great financially. I will find myself in dire straights by the beginning of June, and though my calendar indicates a completion date for Clara Ravens Episode 4: Colombina’s Illusion near and around mid-June, there is absolutely no certainty. The difference between the concrete release dates of image sets and the more elusive dates of comics is that I never know how many pages a comic will be, nor can I estimate just how long setting up an animation will take (could be several hours or several days based on complexity) or render (typically takes days). With image sets, I know in advance how many frames it will be, how long it

In this dossier, Polly (one of the female protagonists from the Epoch Art erotic comic Dark Rift) is fixing a sensor relay when an accident simultaneously causes and explosion and contaminates the air supply.
