Hey everyone, sorry for the absence. It was my girlfriend’s birthday so we were in Disneyland/California Adventure for a few days. Also had to do the Renderotica and Affect3D conversions of Dossier 009: Into Ruin and had some personal issues to deal with, but things are slowly getting back on track. Thank you all for your patience and continued comments and discussion. I loved keeping up with what you guys were posting in the last thread while I was on vacation.
Speaking of which, a few of you mentioned it would be wise to get a poll up right away for what everyone would like to see in the next dossier while I work on the current public commission projects, so as to minimize downtime. I think that is a great idea, but honestly I’ve been so incredibly distracted with my personal issues that I have no ideas for the next dossier. So while I do plan to open up a poll, I’d first love to hear your feedback (once again) for the character(s) you’d like to see most, the scenarios, the stories, etc. Drop a comment and let me know what you’d like to see most, and I’ll compile a list like we did the last dossier poll. Feel free to post more than one idea as well if you like. Xipomus and I will take all suggestions and make a poll with the data for you all to vote on.
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.
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
Clara Ravens Ep. 4: Colombina’s Illusion is, once again, going on the back burner. There is just no way it will be done before Christmas, and although I’ve been in a better spot financially since I started selling the dossiers and getting my products in other market places, I simply cannot stretch it for more than two months it seems. Christmas is fast approaching and I’ve realized I need to immediately switch gears if I want to put something out in time for the holidays so I can go home and see my family.
So we are going to get to work right away on a new dossier. However, in order to bring the most popular option into production, we have set up a poll for you all to vote in. So choose which dossier you’d like to see most. We are going to run this poll for only a few days because, honestly, I am going to need to get to work on it ASAP.
