Tag: The Dossier Series
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.
Dossier 012: Grand Horizontal, featuring the always lovely Clara Ravens, is available now in the Epoch Art store! So click the link and go grab yourself a copy of some steamy Victorian-era sex!
In this dossier, Clara researches a mystical artifact but cannot discover its secrets. But inadvertently she manages to trigger the artifact and is transported back in time to Victorian-era Paris where she is the plaything of infamous courtesan Cora Pearl and her longtime suitor Prince Napoléon Bonaparte.
I took my time with this set, most of it spent building these two incredibly detailed sets. Each image took a very long time to set up due to the number of characters and their clothing needing fit sculpts nearly every frame. It was a pain in the ass to have to resculpt tighter fits for Clara’s stockings and corset constantly, and also having to deal with the slow response from working with so many characters wearing poly-heavy clothing in scenes that are already very poly-heavy. Yes, this was a difficult set to produce, but every set has it’s own unique set of challenges and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I hope you enjoy this set. Clara looks so beautiful in that hairdo and I have to say that Cora has quite a remarkable tushy. Pay attention to the information provided in the early frames to better help you understand the dossier, and let me know what you think of the art and narrative below in the comments. And as always, if you purchase a copy, please consider leaving a review for other potential buyers.
Still plugging away slowly at this set, but I did promise another teaser so here you go. I still don’t have a specific release date slated, but I can say with certainty that Dossier 012: Grand Horizontal will definitely be released this month. This set had two of the most complicated sets I’ve ever built. I swear, every time I set out to do something I think will be fairly simple, it almost always ends up becoming way more complex than I originally imagined. But maybe that’s saying more about my process than anything. I think I’ll shelf that for now and muse it over later…
I hope you enjoy this piece, featuring the historic male suitor of the infamous Cora. Someone requested a full-body shot in the comments so I rendered this one out to include everything. Also, as mentioned previously, their outfits have been tweaked a bit so I hope you like the changes. I personally love Clara’s neck frill. That and her hair… RAWRRR.
So sit tight ladies and hyenas. Good stuff coming soon. And a minor announcement closer to the end of the month. Enjoy the rest of your week and take it easy!
Here’s another promo for you to enjoy as I continue to whittle away at Dossier 012: Grand Horizontal, featuring the intrepid British treasure hunter Clara Ravens, as well as my 3D version of Cora Pearl, a real English beauty who became a famous courtesan in France during the Victorian Era. These outfits have been added to since this render, so they don’t quite reflect exactly what they are wearing in the story, but you get the idea. I went with my own version of Cora, not relying on historical accuracy for her face or body, since this is 3D and I like to stick to a stylized body type.
More previews will be coming as we get closer. In regards to those of you who are not fans of lesbian action, or Clara being bi-sexual, let me point out a few things. First, there is straight sex in this set. This dossier will feature some lesbian sex but mostly FFM straight sex. The male is another character from history and I tried to make him look as much as possible like his historical counterpart. Who he is is largely irrelevant to the dossier overall, and won’t affect future Clara Ravens stories, so I won’t mention his name but visual cues will be there for those of you who like to do a deep dive into the story aspects of the dossier.
Hello all, and happy mid-week to you. Just wanted to quickly stop by and drop a little teaser for the upcoming Dossier 012: Grand Horizontal featuring the very sleepy Clara Ravens. Details about the story will be forthcoming, but the most analytical among you have all the information you need to figure it out from the promo image here.
I’m also throwing in a pinup render of Clara in her lounging sleepwear. This is how Clara tends to dress when she’s at home and still working on stuff, but wants to be warm and comfy.
