Tag: Into Ruin
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!
Good news for those of you who purchased Dossier 009: Into Ruin – it’s been expanded! That’s right, the set now contains seven brand new images of Caerulia and Kole doing their thing, and even includes one alternate x-ray render (an image type that hasn’t been used since Clara Ravens Ep. 3 Epilogue: Homeward Bound). So if you’ve purchased the set, simply head to your ‘My Account‘ page now and redownload the product. Be sure to purge the existing comic from the DCV before loading the new one, or you won’t see the new images!
So why did you get treated to this unexpected expansion? The images were a commission from frequent commentor, super-fan, and Dark Rift-obsessed khazadune! So if you enjoy the expanded set, drop him a “thanks” in the comments below!
Not sure if many of you noticed, but yesterday I uploaded a full body shot of Caerulia, the artificial intelligence female character in the upcoming Dossier 009: Into Ruin. Check the bottom of my previous post for that image. That render was really just to show off her body, since a few of you asked for a full body shot, because the location wasn’t really even complete. I was still in the process of building the room, and found myself struggling with the lighting. I tried several different setups yesterday, but have finally settled on the lighting you see in this image. I really like the complimentary color palette and I think it works well.
I wanted to take a minute to describe how Caerulia’s room works, even though that information will hopefully be conveyed clearly though the visual storytelling of the dossier itself. It is a simple four walled room with a door on one side, the rest of the room covered in opaque black glass panels. When the client
So this set, only featured in the first eight to twelve renders, took nearly two weeks to create. I always end up getting overzealous when set building as it is my favorite part of the process, and this one was incredibly enjoyable. Unfortunately, it put me WAY behind, but hey… that’s not a surprise, now is it? In addition to this promo,
I had a finished render I wanted to share as well, but the image was on my render PC sitting in Octane’s preview window, waiting to be saved, when suddenly the power went out. It was down for only few seconds, but all of my PCs shut off, so that render is lost to San Diego Gas and Electric‘s total failure as a utility company. Lesson learned; I’ll be investing in an uninterrupted power supply this week. (image has been added to the bottom of the post)
Got a few brand new images of Kendra on the beach set from Dossier 002: Wish You Were Here. This mini-set was commissioned by your favorite (and only) site moderator Xipomus. So be sure to drop him a “thanks” in the comments! The concept was that Chad had taken several other photographs of Kendra on the beach, similar to the promotional images for Wish You Were Here that we posted last year. These images, however, were a bit too risque for Chad to post publicly. So think of these as ‘leaked’ private images from Chad’s collection, if you will.
On to other news. Clara Ravens Episode 4: Colombina’s Illusion Part II is on hiatus. We’ve started pre-production on Dossier 009: Into Ruin. It is going to feature a character from the comic fiction of Dark Rift, including a new character that will be reminiscent of a popular video game character. I personally am very excited for the backstory this particular dossier will provide, and I hope you all will appreciate the insight into the character as well. More news (including a release date) and some promo art coming next week, so standby for all of that. Today is Thursday, so the weekend is almost here! Talk to you again soon.
