What Can I Give You?

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.

Time to Make the Donuts

Clara Ravens Ep. 4: Colombina's Illusion - Part II Promo 01Well, I am officially back to work on Clara Ravens Episode 4: Colombina’s Illusion. Thank you everyone for your patience over this year as I pumped out what felt like a dozen dossiers. I am extremely excited to be returning to this comic and even more eager to see it finished (as I imagine many of you are as well). I’ve enjoyed getting back into Barca’s mindset by re-reading the script and using his insanity and rage to pose him in ways that makes his madness and fury shine through in the imagery. I think you’re going to love to hate this nutjob.

I know you are curious about a release date, but the last three or four dossiers should be a pretty solid indicator that release dates are no longer something I offer up. So I am going to work on this hard, at a very steady clip, adhering to my calendar, and hoping to get it out as soon as humanly possible. Keep in mind, the time frame for the comics is always longer as we have sound effects, audio score, animation, and other additional work to do. The comic itself is much more difficult to code due to the image overlay technology used to show action in the frames. All this results in a longer production schedule, so please be patient. I want to give you the best possible product for your money. I promise you it will be worth the wait.

More Kendra on the Beach!

Kendra on the Beach 04Are the winter doldrums getting you down? Well, let’s get you all warmed up, shall we?

Got a few brand new images of Kendra on the beach set from Dossier 002: Wish You Were Here. This mini-set was commissioned by your favorite (and only) site moderator Xipomus. So be sure to drop him a “thanks” in the comments! The concept was that Chad had taken several other photographs of Kendra on the beach, similar to the promotional images for Wish You Were Here that we posted last year. These images, however, were a bit too risque for Chad to post publicly. So think of these as ‘leaked’ private images from Chad’s collection, if you will.

On to other news. Clara Ravens Episode 4: Colombina’s Illusion Part II is on hiatus. We’ve started pre-production on Dossier 009: Into Ruin. It is going to feature a character from the comic fiction of Dark Rift, including a new character that will be reminiscent of a popular video game character. I personally am very excited for the backstory this particular dossier will provide, and I hope you all will appreciate the insight into the character as well. More news (including a release date) and some promo art coming next week, so standby for all of that. Today is Thursday, so the weekend is almost here! Talk to you again soon.
