When Shepard and Traynor discovered that Liara had been secretly recording their love-making for months, and selling the videos on the Extranet, they decided to take the law into their own hands and punish Liara for the whole night. She loved every minute of it.

So yeah. These “unique” animations definitely take me longer to make, but I really think they tend to look better (certainly more interesting) than just copy-pasted in-out, like I had been doing previously. And, truth be told, I actually kinda enjoy making them; enjoyment in the process of animation has been an element that has been elusive to me since pretty much the beginning, so this is a definite plus.
In regards to the Extended Animation Dump: I have maybe 5 or so minutes worth of video to render, and it takes me somewhere between 4 to 7 hours to render a single minute (only the best [image] quality for my viewers!). I’ve been slowly rendering them, mostly at night while I sleep, though I do give my computer breaks (it breaks my heart hearing its fans whir so loudly when trying to sleep). It’s going to take a while.
Also, you know you’re a bit too much a perfectionist when you have a special team of friends designated to review your animations before you post them, finding flaws and other critiques to be repaired. I think those friends deserve a huge “thank-you,” because without them, half of these animations wouldn’t be posted at all because I thought they came out poorly, and the other half would have so many issues with them it’d be like having Michael J Fox holding a Blender in his hands while suffering from epilepsy on a rollercoaster. So a huge “thanks” to my friends who help me out there - you know who you are!
Animation is too big. It literally crashes my GIF program on attempting to save, even at 600p. I couldn’t even get a low-quality 200p save to be under 5MB, and one of the rule34’s (can’t remember which) has a 3MB limit. So I had to post a still image explaining the situation and redirecting, for the rule34’s. Really sorry for the inconvenience. I’ll try to keep the animations shorter in the future. Didn’t expect this one to get so long.
Miranda Lawson Gets Cockdrunk - Flash Game Video Preview
So, among my various other projects, one such project I’ve been working on is this: a Mass Effect interactive Flash game.
Below is a video capture from a very early build of the game. VERY early. It is only the first scene (of the planned 6+), and only one of the 12+ “actions” have been created so far, not counting unique actions like the idle animations and the finishers. No sound or music has been added yet either, which are planned to be included before the final release.
Click on the image to watch the video.
I’ll keep the technical details skimp, and just say that each “action” is comprised of multiple “sequences”, which are played randomly. These aren’t just one big loop playing over and over again, but a bunch of small loops that the game puts together in realtime. This helps break the repetition of a single repeated loop, and breathes some life into an otherwise stale and robotic scene.
I intend to release the game in increments. Every time I complete a scene, a new build will be released, up to the final release. The builds will be comprehensive (meaning build 1 will just be scene 1, build 2 will be scenes 1 and 2, build 3 will be scenes 1, 2, and 3; etc). The reason for this is that there is some persistence, for things such as achievements (what’s a sex game without achievements?) and decisions with repercussions.
Each scene is projected to be about 100MB in size, meaning that, with all of the other non-scene tidbits added on, such as music and audio, I am expecting the final game to be damn near a gigabyte in size. This won’t really be a game you play in the browser - it’ll be a game you download and play off your harddrive.
I am absolutely terrible at projecting dates, so the official release date of Scene 1 is: When it’s done. It could honestly be a week or six months. I can’t really say. All I can tell you is it takes me about 1-2 days to build a single action.
PS, if any of you happen to have a voice eerily similar to Miranda Lawson, don’t hesitate to toss me a message if you’re interested in doing some voice-acting work. I highly doubt anyone will actually be able to do this, and I doubt I’d be able to get Yvonne Strahovski to do voice-acting work for a pornographic parody, for free.
Wheatley:"That isn’t how you say apple!! That isn’t how you say apple!!"
Click for 720p.
So I got a request a few days ago for Chell with Wheatley. I just kinda sat there and stared at my computer screen, reading that request, trying to think of how the hell I’d do it. I, of course, decided to do this request, because it is nothing if not experimental (and not overtly fetishistic), which is what I like to focus on.
Needless to say, this is what came out. Something tells me this isn’t exactly what the requester had in mind, but when you give me so little to work with, I have to get pretty creative sometimes…
As you can probably tell, I am still working on getting away from using copy-pasted frames of simple and repetitive motions. I am also trying to ween myself off using jitter, because frankly, it just causes more trouble than its worth. All the motions see here (minus the jiggle-bones) are hand-animated, and the only copied keyframe is the first to the last, to seal the loop.
As always, I hope you enjoy, and feel free to let me know what you think!
So I’m still having a lot of fun putting this silly-huge thing onto girls. I just find it absolutely hilarious, and I know there’s some people out there that like silly-huge futa, so both parties win.
Before I post the poster, I need to say something: This is a fairly heavily modified version of Tiny Tina’s mesh. I didn’t like people using her standard mesh in animations (and I’ve seen a few) because she is very explicitly underaged (when the game’s official title-card for her says she’s 13, you can’t really say ‘I didn’t know’), so I matured her a fair bit. I grew out her body and adjusted her arm:leg:trunk proportions to match those of an adult woman (as opposed to a child). She stands at about 5’10, comparable with most other Source women. I gave her arms and legs a bit more definition, while keeping the scrawny appearance. I gave her waist and hips definition, put a respectable bosom on her (comparable to Lilith’s chest in Borderlands 1), lengthened her hair, and matured her face subtly. I kept the clothes and overall appearance because 1.) I’m not that good of a modeller, and 2.) Tina strikes me as the kind of person who would wear the same outfit at 18 from she was 13.
This is the full resolution (I made it portrait :O).
I know that my header says “no futa,” but I won’t lie when I say I have been considering a few animation ideas with this concept. I find the ideas very humorous, and those who have the fetish may or may not find them sexually interesting. If I do decide to make those animations, then I need to make this a proper model (it’s just a hack made in SFM and edited in post-process right now) and fix the faceposing (it is absolutely horrible).
I hope you people who don’t like futa will forgive me if I decide to make a few animations with this silly concept, and I hope you people who do like futa will forgive me if I decide not to. Truth be told, I haven’t decided one way or the other yet.
So yeah. The adult Tina may be released publicly sometime in the foreseeable future, but she still has a few issues that need to be addressed.
That Awkward Moment When You Get In a “Whose Bigger” Contest With Two Alien Women…
…And come in last place.
Click for 1080p.
Long story short, I accidentally deleted the penis model I use (it’s a modified version of a released version), and so I had to recompile it. While I was there, I decided to recompile it in various sizes. I then remembered the comically-endowed futa Liara model I made and released a long time ago. Decided to make this image just for shits and giggles.
Didn’t put much effort at all into it. It’s just a one-off gag.
So this started out as an animation of Zoey masturbating, then I decided to make her masturbate through her pants (I made a flex for the pants, so I can put hands down them). Then I decided to throw Rebecca in there for funsies, and then I decided to have them be fondling one another. Then I decided to make it erotic, then romantic. Finally it ended up too beautiful a scene for me to even attempt animating, because I know that anything I did would only detract from the scene.
So I decided to just render it as a poster and stick with it. Unfortunately I now need a new idea to animate.
Hope you guys (and girls) enjoy this one. I know I certainly do. If I were one for pornographic desktop wallpapers, and for making my own works be desktop wallpapers, this one would most probably be my wallpaper for some time.
Well, if you had actually given a legit critique beyond “high-volume-low-quality” you might have a point, but you didn’t, so he doesn’t really have any reason to give you any sort of courtesy.
I gave up on trying to give him constructive criticism a long time ago, when he ignored every piece I offered.
Unfortunately, I cannot provide any links because they were on the old DigitalEro forum (the freeforums), which has long been dead. So you’ll have to take me at my word - and I know the people already predisposed to dislike me won’t believe said word - when I say that I offered him many helpful critiques, all of which he ignored. Indeed, I had to be downright offensive to even get so much as a response from him.
At any rate, this blog is not for drama, and I will not clutter it any more. If you have any questions or rants, please direct them to my inbox. If you don’t ask anonymously, then I will gladly respond to you, provided there is anything worth responding to (blind hatemail will be ignored; legitimate discussions like the one quoted here are candidates for response).
If you ask anonymously, the only way I can respond is a public post, which I will not do regarding this subject, beyond this post. Likewise, I won’t respond via emails, so you will have to use a Tumblr account and submit them via the “Requests” channel. Responses to this post cannot be addressed either, because they, too, require a public post in response.
Anonymous asked: Look at fugtrup's tumblr, he's responded to a post you made on DE apparently dissing him. DRAMA YO!
I am aware. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. My opinion of his work is not obfuscated or obscured in any way, and his opinion of me is similarly well-known. We work under opposing modus operandi, and that is entirely fine. There’s more than one way to skin a cat, as they say, and any way works fine so long as the cat is skinned. In this context, that means that so long as people enjoy the works, it doesn’t really matter how they’re made or what other people have to say about it.
Fugtrup is entirely entitled to have his own opinion. I won’t snipe about that. I’ll continue to criticize his work, regardless of what he or anyone else has to say. If he can’t deal with the criticism, then that’s his problem.
My only issue with his response is the ad hominem. I never attacked his person, only his work; his attacking my person in retaliation was fallacious at best and petty at worst. I’m entirely open to criticisms of my work, and I recognize that they aren’t perfect. Attacking my person, on the other hand, gets any criticism you provide, no matter how valid it may be, promptly ignored.
If you want to criticize, then be civil about it. Criticize my work, not me.
Responding to this publicly because I’ve been getting a lot of private comments about this whole situation, as well as some lovely hate-mail that promptly gets binned.
