Hey everyone, I’m here to drop one last post before the insanity of San Diego Comic Con 2017 begins this week, and what a post it is! Today I give you what can only be described as a ‘commission smorgasbord’. These images were all commissioned by everyone’s favorite site admin Xipomus (He’s not your favorite?! Well why the hell not?!!) and feature a few of the Epoch Art heroines doing stuff… and thangs.
In other news, today and a bit of tomorrow I will working to get the second animation for CR4 set up so it can render over the week I’m away from work while SDCC corrupts my soul. So when I get back to work next week and compile the new animation for the DCV, we’ll be that much closer to release! I appreciate everyone’s patience as we continue to work on getting Clara Ravens Ep. 4 completed, little by little. It WILL be finished this year, guaranteed. That’s all I’m offering in terms of a release date at the moment but I promise that, as soon as the end is in sight, I’ll give a better estimate.
Since part of the inspiration for the Freehope series was the hentai Bible Black, Xipomus proposed a commission idea that I just had to do. It was also my first time using volumetric lighting in Octane, and I can say the result is not worth the render time and the ‘dirtiness’ of the completed render. I think I’ll stick to painting in the effect in the future as I’ve always done, but it was a fun experiment nonetheless. But anyway, Xip gave me a reference photo of one of the Bible Black characters in a robe holding a knife, with sinister under lighting and said he wanted something like that, and Kendra doing another girl with a strap-on dildo. So that’s what this little commission is all about. He suggested the other female be a readhead, since many have mentioned that my character collection is lacking a redhead (with the exception of Leslie… why does everyone forget about her?). So I’m preemptively attaching a render of her too because I know you guys are just gonna ask for one if I don’t include it!
Currently working on a short commission for Epoch Art‘s resident man-in-charge Xipomus, featuring the oldest character in the our catalog, Kendra Blake of Freehope! That commission will be finished and posted soon, but before I even started on it I decided to actually sit down and get poor Kendra up to speed with my current cast of characters in terms of visual fidelity. But, in the process, I managed to create a skin shader that absolutely blew me away! I made versions of it to satisfy sweaty and standard skin conditions, and think this may be my new skin shader for ALL of my characters. It uses subsurface scattering (like all of my previous skins do), but contains a much more subtle skin specularity that adds hugely to a realistic skin look under all lighting conditions. Take a close look at her skin’s reflectivity in certain spots and you’ll see what I mean.
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.
