Chances are that where you reside, it’s not currently morning. Hell, it’s not even morning here. But the post title wouldn’t make sense if I said “top o’ the afternoon”, would it? Or “top o’ the evening”? What is the “top” referring to anyway? Can a morning even have a top? If so, then one could argue it also has a bottom, and that means that morning can be spanked when it’s being naughty.
While you ponder the above metaphysical nonsense, take a few seconds to enjoy this studio pin-up render of Ember in a black version of her lingerie from Dossier 011: Siren Song. I rendered this to accompany the breaking news that Andrei Rykov and Ember Riley will be appearing in Dark Rift Episode 2: Separation. Oh, also Dark Rift Episode 2 has a title, and it is Separation. Ember’s encounter on Dykuma Prime in Dossier 011: Siren Song was intended to tie directly into Dark Rift, though I was gonna bring her character in later. But seeing as she is such a favorite, I’ve gotten her and Andrei into the second episode so you can all see the beginning of their arcs, which I think you’re going to enjoy. Now, unfortunately this shortened a certain favorite xenophile’s scene considerably, but don’t fret… She’ll still be getting some hadrcore action in this episode, too!
Well, 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.
Hey everyone, sorry for the absence. It was my girlfriend’s birthday so we were in Disneyland/California Adventure for a few days. Also had to do the Renderotica and Affect3D conversions of Dossier 009: Into Ruin and had some personal issues to deal with, but things are slowly getting back on track. Thank you all for your patience and continued comments and discussion. I loved keeping up with what you guys were posting in the last thread while I was on vacation.
Speaking of which, a few of you mentioned it would be wise to get a poll up right away for what everyone would like to see in the next dossier while I work on the current public commission projects, so as to minimize downtime. I think that is a great idea, but honestly I’ve been so incredibly distracted with my personal issues that I have no ideas for the next dossier. So while I do plan to open up a poll, I’d first love to hear your feedback (once again) for the character(s) you’d like to see most, the scenarios, the stories, etc. Drop a comment and let me know what you’d like to see most, and I’ll compile a list like we did the last dossier poll. Feel free to post more than one idea as well if you like. Xipomus and I will take all suggestions and make a poll with the data for you all to vote on.
The wait is over…
Make absolutely sure you are running the latest Dynamic Comic Viewer software version 3.3 available for download here. Version 3.1 or higher is required to play the comic.
Enjoy Clara’s latest story. Talk to you later!
