Tag: Colombina’s Illusion
Hey guys, sorry for the super late check-in but I was working hard on CR4 part II and hadn’t mentioned previously that my sister would be coming to town for a week visit with my little niece. I’ve spent the last four days covered in sunblock as we explored the San Diego Zoo, Disneyland, California Adventure, and the San Diego County Fair.
Just wanted to let you all know that the tracker is currently inaccurate, as I redrafted a section of the script that didn’t really play out too well. The rewrite caused the script to grow two pages, so I will need to recalculate where we are at. But it is definitely higher than what is currently listed in the project tracker for sure. In addition, before my sister got here earlier this week, I finished setting up one of the animations and that is currently rendering. The small three second loop needs eleven days to cook! Currently it’s around halfway done (been rendering for nearly five days at this point). Having a completed animation means a significant portion of the total completion will be chalked up on the progress tracker, so that’s good news. I’ll get around to updating the tracker accurately today or tomorrow.
In other news we added the Donation button in the sidebar in order to finance an additional 10 frames for Dossier 014: The Deserted. If you would like to see the product expanded, feel free to submit whatever you can spare. The expansion will have the frames integrated directly into the story just as the expansion Khazarune financed for Dossier 009: Into Ruin. The updated product will be free to everyone who purchased the original; all you will be required to do is to redownload the product from your My Account page. As a special bonus for donators, for every $50 a person donates, they can work with me to add whatever sex act they want in that frame so long as it fits in the visual narrative. In other words, no three-way with Polly, Jester, and the alien (since one of the tags is ‘cuckolding’, this is part of how the story is intended to play out). Also, I do not intend to rewrite the ending that would let Jester get some action because that too would unwind the story’s intent.
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!
Sorry, that got dark pretty quick. And speaking of dark… what could be darker than that giant cock penetrating Erogenesis’ Project E mesh in the above video (brilliant segue FTW)! Between working on Clara Ravens Episode 4: Colombina’s Illusion part II and a few commission projects, I’ve been familiarizing myself more with the Project E mesh, and thought I’d do another quick animation with it. As with the last one I did, this isn’t utilizing a ton of dials to achieve the desired effect. Also, keep in mind this is more or less a ‘rough cut’. If/when she ends up in my production environment for any animation work (which I really would like), I’ll spend extra time to make it look as realistic as possible. This was literally only 15 minutes of setup. I am truly impressed with the mesh, and I really admire the gorgeous weight mapping and joint controlled morphs he has created, not to mention that lovely cock socket!
Brace yourself, as this post is likely going to ruffle a lot of tailfeathers…
I’ve done the math. My calendar is slated and every day penciled in, but there is literally no way I can possibly expect to complete Clara Ravens Episode 4: Colombina’s Illusion by Christmas, which was my sole intention. Even if I work every single day from now until it is finished, it would be impossible to complete, due in large part to the time required to render out the animated sex sequences (they take a few days to over a week per animation) and the sheer amount of renders that compose one page of the comic, using our DCV image overlay technology.
So this puts me in a bind. The holidays are fast approaching, and time off around the holidays is something I am looking forward to, especially because my girlfriend who has been living with me for over a year is wanting to meet my family. So we will travel back to my neck of the woods in Pennsylvania and see how that goes. It’s a big step.
I’m really not trying to bore you with personal stuff, but the reason I’m mentioning this is because I do want to get something out before the holiday (ideally something I can release mid-December) that will help me offset the cost of plane tickets and holiday expenses. You’ve probably noticed I’ve had a release in December for the last two years. This is simple planning for the holidays, and this year I want to do the same. But CR4 simply isn’t going to make it in time.
