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!
When you’re as wealthy as Clara, having your super-secret tech room upgraded to a newer state-of-the-art version is easily accomplished. So here is the work-in-progress tech room, nearly finished, that will appear in Clara Ravens Episode 4: Colombina’s Illusion. I’ve included Clara in one of the images so you can get a feel for the size of the room. Those who have read Clara Ravens Episodes 1 and 2 will recognize the majority of the set’s props, but many new ones have been added, and it has been outfitted to just feel more ‘real’. Feel free to leave your opinions on it in the comments section below.
As I mentioned previously, in between working on commissions I’m doing the preproduction for Clara Ravens Episode 4: Colombina’s Illusion. Part of that preproduction is dressing characters in new outfits. Since, once my hardware upgrade has been complete, the frames and animations of the new comic will be rendered in Octane, Leslie’s new outfit needed to be optimized for that render engine. So here is a sample of how she will appear in the new comic. Hope you like her!
More commissions coming this week.
