Today is Yesterday’s Tomorrow

Clara Ravens - Stretchy TanktopSo, as I watch these days tick by and make progress on this comic in a speed befitting a tortoise in a certain race with an arrogant rabbit, I am often presented with tough decisions that will dramatically affect outcomes. This past week was one of those times.

The character of Hugo I decided to build on the Daz3D Genesis mesh because he is a fat guy and he needs to be wearing a suit. Since Genesis uses a hyper-conforming technology for vertex matching called Tri-Ax, I thought it would be the best way to put Hugo in a suit and have a viable character that can work in my scenes without a lot of needed fixes on the fly in regards to his suit fitting.

Boy, was I wrong. Everyone knows Genesis works like fucking garbage in Poser. The DSON importer works okay, but the

Babysitter for Hire

Celo Barca - Clara Ravens Ep. 4: Colombina's IllusionMeet Celo Barca. He’s known simply as Barca by his friends (or would be, if he had any friends). He calls Honduras home, though he is not originally from there. He enjoys exploring ancient Mayan ruins and homicide. Barca is available to babysit your kids. He is batshit insane…

Barca will be a recurring character in the Clara Ravens series, and will be making his terrifying debut in Episode 4: Colombina’s Illusion. He is based on perhaps the most sadistic and maniacal video game villain ever: Vaas from Far Cry 3. Here’s a little synopsis:

Life is what happens…

Unused Frame from Ember's GameThings have been a little stressful around here lately. My roommate let me know only last Tuesday that he was moving out by the end of the month. And since I am going back home to visit my family this week, I had to scramble to find a new roommate before I leave. So the majority of last week was lost on that debacle. But the good news is I have a roommate ready to move in in October, and the both of us are super-stoked. So everything worked out.

I had scheduled over 20 appointments to show my apartment today and tomorrow (I leave for home on Wednesday), but after I talked to the person who is going to be my new roommate, things just clicked. We have a ton of things in common, so I had this person come by before anyone and check the place out and then we had a nice chat, and we both agreed it was a good fit. So I was able to cancel all the appointments I had scheduled and am able to get real work done on Clara Ravens Ep. 4 today! Thank goodness that ordeal is over with.

The Bonus Wallpapers

Colombina's Illusion Wallpaper 03 CropFinished the last of the bonus desktop wallpapers that will be bundled with Clara Ravens Ep. 4: Colombina’s Illusion. As last time, all wallpapers feature Clara only. There will be two erotic nude wallpapers and one non-nude for those of you still trying to hide your perversion from friends and family. Honestly, we don’t know why you bother. Everyone knows you’re a freak…

This is a crop from the final, non-nude wallpaper. You’ll have to wait for the release of the comic to get the context of what is happening in the image. The mention of a sunken archipelago in Colombina’s Illusion alludes to a watery adventure in Clara’s future. This sexy outfit will be featured in that episode.

In other news, the newsletter double-opt in is working, which just leaves setting up the gallery. Unfortunately, we’ve found out that the WordPress theme we’re using for the website is so old that WordPress updates have caused a lot of the shortcodes to degrade, and therefore the lightbox gallery functionality for the theme we’re using no longer works. So there’s going to be no way to scroll through the gallery image by image. It will work like the current image lightbox does, where you click on the image and it opens, then you have to close it again before you can look at another image. It’s a minor inconvenience to be sure, but further proof that we’re going to need to completely overhaul the website sooner or later.

That’s all for now. Tracker updated with our progress. Talk to y’all later. Have a great weekend!
