It seems that the Ellie Beta reception has been mostly positive! That's great. But also a lot of features has been asked for, so I thought I'd take my time and answer some.
"All the way through cum/cock would be awesome :3"
I get this a lot for some reason. I don't know how you missed it, but her body is longer than the dick. And even if it wasn't, the assets weren't really made for that sort of thing. It's a reskin of a previous project plus a major touch up of some of the animation (the boobs especially.) All the way through is just something that won't be a thing in this, sorry.
"Huh, and here I thought ZZZ would be a prority since it's been in development fo so long"
the ZZZZ project, though the project has changed name for now. I just call it the "farm project" or "horse project". The reason for that is that it's basically going to be 4 flashes in 1 as I've stated before, and that name only covers 1 of the parts.
"I think the milking cups need to be wider, covering most or all of the areola, but the nipples should stretch into the glass with a nice rhythm. (maybe have a little bit of areola bordering the edge of the cup, which gets sucked in with each pump) I'd look to those old flashes by Besped for reference. This would probably require altering the zoom level a little, or allowing the camera to move down a bit (assuming this doesn't reveal unfinished art), but it'd really improve the milking aspect hugely. Great work, otherwise!"
That is exactly what it would do, there's nothing below the borders of what you see. The original art was sort of poorly planned in that regard, since the boobs dip so low at later stages of the animation. But that's too late to fix.
Milking was not
a planned feature in the original (neither was clothing options), this was just something I added to add a little spice to the animation since I saw it easy to implement and people would probably appreciate it.
Unfortunately, it's not possible to easily make the suction cups much bigger, since the nipples and areolas move around a lot. It might be possible to redesign the suction cups to work with it, but I don't remember exactly how it was built. I might look at it again later when I return to it.
"Looking good, it's cool that there are variations in each part of the loops if you wait, it's a nice addition of detail. Will the animations in the other parts of the flash have this as well?"
No, but the other parts have more loops and animations already. Since this is so short, a few variatons spices it up a bit more.
"Absolutely love the body writing. Great touch. Was curious to know if you intend to let her belly stay full in the full release? Easily my favorite feature that you do since you always make it so perfect!"
Another frequently requested feature. I considered it, but it would require so much work and animation editing that I didn't think it was worth all the trouble. Maybe if I was planning to include it from the beginning, but since it wasn't, it'd just be a huge bother to do. You'll have to take it for what it is this time.
"Really like what I'm seeing so far. Any chance of you doing more with the lactation element?"
What do you mean, just in general, or within the flash...?
"Plz add anal action :D"
There will be a second scene where Ellie is turned around. That's pretty low priority within the project now, though, I plan on doing it last.
"Please add a viewable navel that protrudes from cuminflation. More of the same, sure, but I love it. "
This is possible. An easy addition that I'll add to my notes.
"This definitely needs all the way through and some nice lipstick smearing"
While lipstick would be nice, it would be pretty awful to add it to each indivudual frame. Not sure how I'd add the smearing on the cock, but I suppose it'd be possible. Perhaps if I feel brave some day, I'll consider adding it, but don't get your hopes up.
"Definetely needs the background darkening a bit so the foreground sticks out more"
I plan on redrawing and simplifying the background later, across all of the parts. Making them outline-less like in many other projects, like Onihole and the recent reskin. I reused the colors from the Zoo-Philia flash, to bring out the nostalgia factor, but I think it's better to optimize it and make it not so clustery.
Another feature I've added is a hairstyle change so you can more easily see the throat bulge, if you so wish.
I'm also going to give her a voice in the future. We'll see how it goes!
Here's two drawings I finished up as well!
Sofi the Bully 1
Sofi the Bully 2
I sure got a bunch of flack for these at a few places... Apparently it's not OK to add a little psychological trauma in a picture, but it's completely fine to draw all other sorts of fucked up things. Bluh.
I'm still working on Mittsies' project, in flash news. Ooo, it hurts to work on something you've not been involved in with the planning phase. You feel so lost! And I've had the "luxury" of trying to figure out how to implement all of the features without making things haywire or having to spend a deathly amount of time into animation criss-cross variations of all sorts of options. Luckily, we found and agreed on a way that isn't too bad, but bleh. The art itself isn't very well suited for the options and features planned.
Well, enough ranting. I'm off to bed.
