The site is back up and running. A lot of web crawlers at the same time spiked the SQL database to eat to much resources.
So we got blocked.
It took some doing, because communication was rather limited, but it worked out.
See poor Polly below… after her latest adventure.. she had to help with the website.. she can rest now.
fyi added a 1920×1080 of the card to the other post.
We at Epoch Art would like to wish you all Happy Holidays and hopefully even a better beginning.
I wanted to do a party like render, but unfortunately didn’t have the time till now.
Not completely happy with the lighting, but unfornately it’s late.
So i’m just posting the image. It’s not perfect, just a little Xmas card.
The story is Clara was doing Christmas card photograps during the party. Unfortunately the drinks kept flowing and at some time they decided to have some fun with the photo’s.
This is one of the photo’s.It’s rendered at 4k, so enjoy.
* update – 26 december 2017 *
Added the requested image just for fun. Unfortunately to get Clara in the picture entirely… it had to be zoomed out.
That’s it for me this year. Enjoy.
We are happy to annouce… Clara Ravens – Colombia’s Illussion part II is available for purchase.
For all those who already bought the comic, just redownload from menu Store, My Account.
It was a long time in development. A lot of issues with the different Octane version
We did dossiers to give you some images, but we always wanted to complete this comic.
It took a lot of long days but it’s here.
Enjoy it and let me know what you liked/didn’t like.
* UPDATE – 404 error on ordering *
Some people had a 404 error on ordering. When you get that error, DON’T order again.
Check your mail, it should contain the link. If not check here on the site, Menu Store, My Account.
That should contain the order, if it went through ok.
If there are any troubles let me know via the contact button on the menu.
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.
