Brace yourself, as this post is likely going to ruffle a lot of tailfeathers…
I’ve done the math. My calendar is slated and every day penciled in, but there is literally no way I can possibly expect to complete Clara Ravens Episode 4: Colombina’s Illusion by Christmas, which was my sole intention. Even if I work every single day from now until it is finished, it would be impossible to complete, due in large part to the time required to render out the animated sex sequences (they take a few days to over a week per animation) and the sheer amount of renders that compose one page of the comic, using our DCV image overlay technology.
So this puts me in a bind. The holidays are fast approaching, and time off around the holidays is something I am looking forward to, especially because my girlfriend who has been living with me for over a year is wanting to meet my family. So we will travel back to my neck of the woods in Pennsylvania and see how that goes. It’s a big step.
I’m really not trying to bore you with personal stuff, but the reason I’m mentioning this is because I do want to get something out before the holiday (ideally something I can release mid-December) that will help me offset the cost of plane tickets and holiday expenses. You’ve probably noticed I’ve had a release in December for the last two years. This is simple planning for the holidays, and this year I want to do the same. But CR4 simply isn’t going to make it in time.
Surprise!! Dossier 011: Siren Song, featuring the bodacious and spunky Ember Riley from the comic fiction of Dark Rift, is available for purchase now in the Epoch Art store! So grab yourself a copy for only $9.99 USD and enjoy one of our most complex visual narratives to date, with tons of sci-fi action and outrageous sex! Also, BE SURE YOU HAVE THE DCV VERSION 3.0 (or higher) OR YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO VIEW THIS PRODUCT! You can download it right here: DCV Version 3.3 Download.
With one of the tightest product schedules I’ve held myself to, yet one of the most grueling multi-set productions for any dossier, this was a real “sink or swim” moment for me and Xipomus. I haven’t had a day off in over three weeks. Yesterday I worked 13 and a half hours to finish the remaining frames. But I’m happy to say we rose to the occasion, despite numerous ridiculous setbacks (Poser kept reparenting scene objects when I’d change from the auxiliary to the main camera! I mean what in the actual fuck? Does that make ANY sense whatsoever?). Yes, this was an intense amount of work, but I’m proud of the set… and I’m in need of a serious break.
So enjoy the return of fan favorite Ember Riley and let me know what you think of the set. I like to try different things, so I’m hoping this will be something that interests you. And, as always, if you pick up a copy please consider leaving a review and/or a rating on the product page to help other potential buyers. If you’d like to discuss anything in particular regarding this dossier, feel free to leave a comment in this thread and we can get a dialogue going.
If you’re the type of person who identifies with the phrase “a day late and a dollar short” then you’re in luck. Because that tardiness will end up saving you money purchasing The Dossier Series 007 – 009 Bundle from Epoch Art!
We have put together our latest bundle with our standard 25% savings, making the total price only $22.49 (a savings of $7.48)!
Two of these dossiers feature the gorgeous Clara from the Epoch Art fiction of Clara Ravens, one with her hair up in a bun, and the other with her hair down (the first time ever in any dossier or comic), one with a tanned Clara and the other with tanlines! In Dossier 007: Legacy of the Batutut, Clara takes a step back through time and is chosen one to procreate with the mythical Batutut, fierce ape-like hominids who dwell deep in the jungles of Vietnam. Next up, in Dossier 008: The Boggarts of Loughcrew Cairn, Clara’s bedroom becomes infested with miniature imps after she mistakenly allows a mystical urn to become exposed to moonlight. And getting rid of these pesky creatures will be a hard pill for her to swallow. And finally, in Dossier 009: Into Ruin, we find Kole on a quest of self-destruction, wandering the red-light district of a futuristic Earth. Judgement cloudy, our hero foolishly pays for a very new type of sexual experience with a very unpredictable A.I.
If you are new to Epoch Art and haven’t experienced any of the dossiers yet, you now have three bundles to choose from! Read up on the back story of the protagonists of the most popular Epoch Art comics (Freehope, Clara Ravens, and Dark Rift) and acquaint yourself with our universe!
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.
