Happy Sunday! We’re working hard to finish up Dossier 014: The Deserted for an early May release. Here’s a teaser pic featuring a very wet Polly Talbish. Poor girl. That pet alien of hers really gets her into a lot of trouble sometimes.
So you’re probably asking yourself, “Oh lord, What did Jester do this time?” Well, let’s put it this way: Polly doesn’t tend to climb around inside crashed, half-flooded spaceships in soaked underwear just for fun.
A few of you were pulling for the next dossier to be titled “The Xenophile” which is a great title, but I felt that title would be better suited to a dossier outlining Polly’s first sexual encounter with an alien. “The Deserted” is a reference to the alien inhabitant of the crashed ship, who is an escapee of Sha’ato’s slave trading (Sha’ato is the little purple alien that Talbish is selling goods to in the previously released frame). This alien is aquatic by nature, but the planet is entirely desert (which is the other reason I named it “The Deserted”). Survival chances for him were slim, but he managed to make it to this crashed ship to hide from his captor. Luckily for him, the ship’s previously intact cooling system had been breached in the crash, providing a shallow pool environment in which he could survive. It’s a lonely life for this poor alien. He’d give almost anything for something (or someone) to fuck…
I’ll try to post another render as we get closer to the release date. Have a good week, everyone!
So here’s a frame from the upcoming Dossier 014 (currently untitled), only the second dossier to feature the raven-haired xenophile Polly Talbish. For those new to Epoch Art, Polly “Pixie” Talbish is one of the stars of our Dark Rift sci-fi comic. This dossier takes place in the days of Sam Talbish’s (Polly’s father) nascent contraband business. In those early days, as Sam did his best to gain clients, he and Polly did a lot of the delivery themselves. They would fly all over the Sagittarius Arm of the galaxy, trading and selling… buying and borrowing.
One such trip to a desert moon led an inquisitive and bored Polly (with her pet Jester in tow) to a large downed U.P.A. spacecraft. During her exploration, she encountered a very large alien living inside who turned out to be quite inquisitive himself… much to Polly’s utter delight.
This dossier will feature a very wet Polly in soaked, see-through underwear. The first promotional piece of art I release (once I have a working title and logo) will give you a glimpse of this outfit and the wet look. I guarantee you’re going to love it.
Look, I can promise to give you guys a release window and a solemn promise to do my absolute best to hit it if you promise to not give me shit if I don’t. Deal? Okay, good. Then keep an eye out for this release in the Epoch Art store the first week of May.
The hype-train has left the station. Choo choo, motherfuckers.
Khazadune gave me the go-ahead to share this commissioned set so here you go. This female alien character is part of some obscure science fiction universe based on a film series called Star Wars I believe. It’s a story about some religious cult and I think there might be a robot or a luck dragon or something? I can’t remember as I don’t pay much attention to indies…
So this is a Mirialan, which is a green-skinned, near-human alien race that tattoo their face and arms to signify specific life accomplishments. Ask Khaz if you want more details, as I didn’t realize they were even in the latter trilogy until I looked them up. This character uses Polly’s exact body shape (except with a smaller, rounder breast) but has a unique face and texture done from scratch. The outfit is something I plan to use in Dark Rift (minus the tool belt, which I borrowed from Polly at Khazadune’s request since his character is a mechanic) because it’s fucking rad.
Ladies and hyenas, just wanted to drop these off to you all real quick as I’ve had an exhausting day of running errands and need to get some work done yet on the next commission project. So here are four pinup-styel images of Polly Talbish, enjoying her time in the exotic hot springs of an alien planet, commissioned by site regular Chris3DX. Drop him a note of thanks and let him and I know what you think. By the way, if you enjoyed the previous Ember commission, he’s also the one to thank. I personally think they turned out great and was excited to do more with the set I put together for the Polly and Jester commission (which can be found in the Exclusive Newsletter Gallery).
If you find yourself not getting a rise out of these images, check your pulse… you’re likely dead.
‘Til next time, folks. Enjoy your week!
