Progress Report - 12/20/2020
I have a clear direction now. There are six or seven more scenes I'd like to do and then we should have a release. I'm going to let you guys know how I set it up;
There will be two paths but instead of splitting off immediately like I did in the main story, the scenes are going to weave out of the main story and then back into it. You'll also get points depending on choices so the path your set on will depend on how many points you have. The two paths are going to be: Lewd and Wholesome. That's all I'm going to reveal for now.
I expected this release to take me one month but I've been enjoying working on it so much that I expanded it quite a bit. It will probably late January when I put it out and trust me, it'll be worth the wait.
I built a new PC to start off the new year and Penny for Your Thoughts strong. This new PC is rendering images in half the time and I still have my old equipment which means I should be able to use the old computer to just do animations. We should see animations even outside of lewd scenes for Penny for Your Thoughts. But there's more skills that I need to make this work well so the learning continues!
To test out the new computer, I redid my Easter render with Octavia. I improved the lighting and her makeup. Here's the before;
The render was far too bright, the face had a weird tint to it and her eyes aren't even looking at the camera.
The same image with better lighting and slight adjustments. Now to be fair, if I was to do this render again today I would have changed a lot more than just the lighting. But it does look a lot better.
With this new equipment and a years worth of experience, I hope to be able to compete with the big boys in this industry but ultimately it's going to come down to how well Penny's game is received. Only time will tell and that means I need to get busy!
Thank you for all your support and Happy Holidays!
Farewell for now.
