Okay, so Rio de Janeiro was not quite the equivalent of World War I, but I do feel battle scarred for sure. The trip to Rio was 17 hours each way (total travel time 34 hours; not all flight time), and I caught a cold on my return flight. So now I am in the midst of a full blown cold (sore throat, sneezing, heavy cough, and runny nose), but I am so eager to get back to rendering that I am sitting here with a steaming cup of hot tea and Clara’s beautiful face staring back at me through my monitor. To get motivated, I packed up a .dcv and read through what I have of Clara Ravens Episode 4: Colombina’s Illusion finished so far. Let me just say that, despite having started on this over a year ago, it is still my best looking work to date! I can’t wait to finish it and share it all with you!
I don’t know what this is. It was meant to be a test of several things. First, a converted fetish outfit to fit my Clara body with converted Octane materials. Second, a test render of Barca’s cock in close-up to make sure it looks right. And lastly, a test of Clara’s alternate nipple texture (which I’ve been using a lot in renders lately) with new, custom displacement to give the areolas puffiness and some of those bumpy gland things (I’m sure science named them but I can’t be fucked to look it up right now).
So what you get is a hodge-podge of all of those things. The image makes no sense. It is not, in any way, indicative of what will happen in the upcoming comic. I only wanted to share because it turned out really well and thought my hyena-pack would enjoy something new to gnosh on.
I’ll check back in as soon as I can. In the meantime, have a good week and enjoy yourselves!
Finished 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!
