This set requires the Dynamic Comic Viewer version 3.1! Be sure you download it HERE or you won’t see the bonus section. If you haven’t purchased Dossier 003: House of the Paramours previously, now is a perfect time to get this fantastic dossier, featuring the hottest half-breed this side of Alpha Centauri!
*EDIT 27-11-2015 XIPOMUS DCV updated again to fix the issues
Please let us know if the new versions fixes those issues.*
This bonus set is a commission featuring Callie “Callisto” Salehi, a half-human half-Margollaean U.P.A. licensed Paramour entertaining a male client. The commission is not going to be made available anywhere else, so head to the store and pick yourself up a copy today!
And even if you aren’t interested in Dossier 003: House of the ParamoursI recommend upgrading your DCV immediately, as there is a new ‘Attention Overlay’ feature that draws attention to alternate images, in addition to a new advertisement loading section that loads up fresh ads for each comic/dossier.
In other news, Clara Ravens Episode 4: Colombina’s Illusion is nearing completion! Well, at least part one is. But guys, I gotta be honest… I’m considering charging for part two. Part one ends in a cliff-hanger, and is already 175 pages long (composed of over 500 image elements) with two separate sex scenes involving four different characters. Part two will also have two sex scenes with two different characters. It won’t be as long as part one (maybe 50-75 pages), but is certainly long enough and packed with enough sex to warrant a price tag. It would be about as long as a dossier but with even more sex (again… TWO sex scenes). Part one will be the $15.00 USD price tag you’re used to for the full comic releases, but part two will only be $10.00 USD, with a ‘bundle’ released at a later date for a price tag of $20.00 USD. It might seem high, but keep in mind this dwarfs any work I’ve ever done. And, if you’ve been reading my previous blog posts, you know that the comics are going to get considerably shorter… more around the size of part two of this upcoming release… so getting part two for $10.00 USD is a steal since comics will remain $15.00 USD despite getting shorter. If you are wondering how the comics, which will only be the average length of a dossier can warrant a $5.00 higher price tag, don’t forget the bonus wallpapers, bios, 3D turntables, animations, sound effects, and score. Bottom line is that I think these decisions are reasonable from a business standpoint, but I’m interested in hearing your thoughts on the matter in a comment below.
Due to the busy schedule of Team Nok’Tus and their limited availability until January 2016, we have had to look elsewhere for the outsourcing of the Clara Ravens Episode 4: Colombina’s Illusion animation. We are pleased to announce that we are working with the talented Busty Elves in Peril artist/animator Chimera46! Those of you not new to erotic CG have likely seen his body of work at Renderotica and deviantART. He has been at this a LONG time. Fans of his will recognize his Tripping the Rift animations of Six, his Twi’leks from Star Wars, and the aforementioned Busty Elves in Peril. If you’re unfamiliar with his work, definitely check out one (or both) of the links above to see his animations in action!
Chimera46 and I hashed out the details of our collaboration early last week and he got right to work. In fact, he finished one of the animation setups in only a few days and as of this moment it has already finished rendering! So we are very happy to have him on board to help us make a top-tier product for you all to enjoy. We will be parsing out delivery of the frames to be animated on a weekly basis so that we have time to render the previous animation setup in Octane, make it DCV-ready, and test it in the player before moving on to the next.
Well, ladies and hyenas… we are once again in production on Clara Ravens Episode 4: Colombina’s Illusion. Now having officially passed the two year mark (not all of it production time on this particular project, obviously), this is easily the longest project I’ve ever worked on. It is over 120 pages at this point with over 450 renders completed in order to offer that unique “dynamic” experience that I am going for in these works. This comic will be bigger than Dark Rift Episode 1: Resurrection by a HUGE margin; both in terms of man-hours and scope. I have learned an enormous amount about Octane since I started it, but yet the images from even the earliest pages still look incredible and are up to my quality standards. I am eager to make a huge push to get this thing finished before the end of the year, but I make no promises because those often get me in trouble with you guys!
Happy Star Wars Day to you all!
As SDCC steadily approaches (July 8th – July 12) and my income just as steadily wanes, I find myself once again having to add the dreaded “ripcord date” to my project calendar. I was paid out from my other markets for my April sales and things are not looking so great financially. I will find myself in dire straights by the beginning of June, and though my calendar indicates a completion date for Clara Ravens Episode 4: Colombina’s Illusion near and around mid-June, there is absolutely no certainty. The difference between the concrete release dates of image sets and the more elusive dates of comics is that I never know how many pages a comic will be, nor can I estimate just how long setting up an animation will take (could be several hours or several days based on complexity) or render (typically takes days). With image sets, I know in advance how many frames it will be, how long it
