Been a while, ye? Parts of the server broke down, and had to be replaced. And now they've been so! I don't know the full story, since I'm not involved with the hosting and whatnot, but ye. Apparently it's been mostly a economic problem for the server owner. But now RC.se is back up again! Hopefully forever now, hoahoa! These downtimes are really annoying.
I suppose I should try to type up some significant stuff that's been going on while site's been dead now. So in no particular order, here goes.
I guess the first thing on your minds are "RC where the fuck is the flash you piece of shit", so I'll start with that.
Flash goes OK! I've pretty much had a month and a half long hiatus from it due to getting to play Breath of the Wild and then shortly after traveling to Japan for two weeks. But I've now returned to flash making, which feels good. Not working on flash makes me feel bad :c
And since it's been a while, let me let you in on a few secrets or so that I've kept, but now feel are worth revealing. Gotta make up for all the downtime, eh?
I present to you, my WIP main menu of the project! It's pretty much going to be a 4 in 1 type flash!
Since there are now subnames to the flash, I can't really call it "ZZZZ" anymore, ye? I've tried to come up with a name for it, but... With little success. Anybody got any clever ideas? I'm open for suggestions!
Another thing I was about to post just before the site died was a update on that small Ellie contest. I instead posted the whole thing on furaffinity instead, where I didn't get much response, hoahoa. I'm just gonna copy-paste what I wrote there into here, so that you all can have a good look at it.
___________________________________________ Hi ho, some of you might be aware of a flash I've been working for quite some time! (and willl continue to do for a further quite some time because I keep tacking things onto it)
I've showed off Ellie in her cow costume in her part of the flash which I've named Ellie's Equine Erotic Endeavours. This is actually a reskin of another unreleased flash I've made, which is why she might look a bit weird in some spots. But that's probably just me, she looks fine animated! And apart from coding and some tiny details, her part is finished. There's only oral in Ellie's part, which might be disappointing to some people. And since I'm already working on so many other things related to this flash, I didn't really want to add even more to it. But this is most likely the last time I'll do one of these farm flashes so I thought it'd be a shame to leave out Ellie getting buttfucked by a horse! Sofi and Zara has already been so, and Zu is about to be.
So I had the idea, if some fan could draw an Ellie in a position where she would be ready for some anal, I could trace it and animate it in!
I've already got a few drawings since I put up my offer on my site a while ago. But now the server is dead so it's down and nobody can read it, hoahoa.
Interested in drawing an Ellie? You'll get credit if I decide to use your drawing in the flash.
Instructions of how to succeed in doing an RC-freindly Ellie drawing below!
1. KNOWING WHAT ELLIE LOOKS LIKE
Obviously the most important part of wanting to see Ellie take horse dick up her butt, is knowing what she looks like! And if you're interested in that, you probably already know what she looks like. But still, might be a good idea to get a refresher.
You'll have to draw her naked though!
I can maybe add costumes in afterwards, but that requires precise planning, or else it'll become all fucked up. So naked! Perhaps apart from the ribbon in her hair.
2. WHAT TO DRAW?
Good question. First off, let me show off some edited images I've prepared for this!
Since I want this to be relatively easy to make, I've decided to reuse the horse assets, so the horse needs to stay in place. The horse's front legs can be moved around though. And of course, the whole Ellie needs to be redrawn. Any position is fine, really. But if it is too weird or complex, I might turn it down for being too difficult to animate well.
3. WHAT TO HAVE IN MIND WHILE DRAWING?
Simply drawing an image is quite difference from drawing an image that is going to be used as a base for animation. So here are some of the most important things to keep in mind while doing so.
1. Make sure Ellie's torso can be moved easily towards and away from horsedick. If Ellie is too far away from the horse, it may lead to some probems when going for deep penetration and such things. I can animate the horse and Ellie's arms and legs moving as well, but since I want to keep it simple, I want to avoid doing too much of it. But this is mainly a problem if Ellie is going to be on her back or something; unless she's on a swing it can be difficult making the horse reach all the way! Like, don't have her arms completely outstretched in neutral position, that'll make it difficult to move her back without having to move her arms to rest on something else.
2. Try to keep Ellie's face visible. Facial expressions are sort of important, ya? Try to make her face to be in such a position that it can be always visible. I want to avoid her face being in profile, at least if she's facing away from the horse. I'd also suggesting giving her a fitting facial expression. Not too happy with the situation.
3. Keep limbs, boobs and hair in relatively simple positions. For limbs, it can be difficult to make them animate well if they're in odd positions. This is pretty difficult to predict though, since even I've ran into problems with my own drawings, hoahoa. Boobs, try to keep them away from being squished or being lead into a non-natural resting state. It's easier to animate them like that! Same with hair!
4. It is fine to add additional objects that Ellie can rest on or is restricted by. So don't be afraid of drawing in a table or a rope or something if you need to!
5. Giving a good view of the belly can be pretty important if things like cuminflations or dickbulges are to be animated in! Keep this in mind if you'd like this to be a thing.
6. Maintain my artstyle, if possible. Use the same colors, facial features and somewhat round and simple style for the body. If it is too different or detailed, chances are that I can't redraw it in vectors!
As a side note, I'll probably make some changes while redrawing it, for one reason or another. This almost always happens when I trace off of my own drawings too, so it is nothing to worry about.
7. I almost forgot, but try to keep the resolution the same. If I have to resize and shiet it can result in wonkyness when redrawing in vectors. Things wont match up and whatnot. So keep it 1600 x 900!
4. HOW TO SEND?
Uh, well, I suppose somewhere I can get the fullres image. A reply to this or a PM if you're shy or want to show a sketch and hear my thought is fine.
I'll probably leave a comment stating my opinion and thoughts about the drawing wherever you post it!
Well... I'd like to have one, but I really don't. I consider there to be a long time left before I can get back to Ellie.
The deadline is around the same time I feel I'm getting close to finishing the other parts of the flash. So I'll simply notify you by a journal message or something similiar when that happens. But it'll be a while. Months most likely. This year? Maybe not. You've got plenty of time, even if you're reading this after three months have passed!
6. HOW TO DECIDE WHAT DRAWING ULTIMATELY GOES IN.
Aside from me removing the submissions that wont work for whatever reason, I'll pick out the ones I think are most fit and/or interesting and make a poll or something.
If there are enough submission that is! I hope there will be at least!
7. BUT RC, JUST TURN ELLIE AROUND AND YOU'LL BE DONE!
(dat is empossible)
for several reasons, but the most important one is that it is unnecessarily complex and it'll look completely awful and you should feel ashamed to suggest such a thing.
And that's probably it. Got more questions? I'll answer those in the comments as well. ___________________________________________
I'll probably post this up on Hentai Foundry as well... Maybe. Just to get some outside attention as well, perhaps.
So what have I been up to while I was gone? Well... Like I said, mostly Zelda and that trip to Japan.
I posted a few images to my Twitter, so go check that if you're interested in some fun photos of me and my friends and whatever else I thought was interesting. Have this picture of my bookshelf right now, though!
And now, for some side characters of interest! I haven't made all of them yet, but most! Simon, who's mostly known for bullying Zu through school. He's now pretty obsessed with making Zu his submissive little bitch. So it's going to be troublesome for the catgirls if he ever returns to Granköping.
Matilda, the head maid of Zu. She's not too happy about having to order around a sometimes unfocused and playhappy Zu, so naturally Zu fears her!
Felix, who's a resident of the mansion! Zu really, really likes his body. She's a sucker for cute boys and big strong hunks, and with how flaunty Felix acts, Zu has a hard time taking her eyes off of him. A change of panties might needed if she watches him for too long!
Lotta, Felix's younger sister! She aims to be a writer, and enjoys Zu's company due to how unique her ideas can be sometimes! She also lends out paper to Zu that she can draw on, but doesn't go outside that much!
Johanna, Zu's long lost sister! Or something! Since they were separated a long time ago, and Zu had her named changed (originally named Therese Nilsson) the search for Zu has been a difficult one! Not that she's had much time since she's still studying... But some day, they'll be reunited for sure!
Hampus, Sixten's younger brother! He's, unlike Sixten, extrovert and eccentric! He wants to be popular with the girls, but tries way too hard! Zara rid him of his virginity, making Sixten very jealous!
That's all of them for now! I'll add them to the character gallery soon with a longer blurb about them! ___________________________________________
Time for some arts! I've actually drawn a whole bunch of more drawings, but I'm waiting for collaborators to color them! But if they take too long I suppose I'll have to post the sketches themselves! Anyway, drawings!
