Ask me anything

Do you have an E.T.A on when your next video will be finished?

LordAardvark

Shooting for August. I have a schedule pinned on my Twitter, you know.

Of course, it won't mean anything after August. I intend to address publicly this in a few days. But it's still relevant for now.

Can you do a series similar to that of D.va but with Sombra 😍

LordAardvark

My first reaction was to coyly refer to an 8-part miniseries that I have drafted out that involves all of the Overwatch ladies, which I don't think I've ever mentioned publicly outside of my Patreon.

My second reaction was to playfully respond with a "don't you think we should maybe finish the current series, first?"

But my third reaction, and the one I am going with, is simply this: 🤔

There might be merit in considering a miniseries of sorts that gives all of the Overwatch ladies some character depth. Goodness only knows Blizzard certainly won't ever actually treat them like characters and write them anything worth a damn.

It's something I will have to put thought into, and discuss with my circles (Discord, Patreon, and Twitter). If there's enough interest, I might throw the idea out to the wolves for a future on-stream mini-stream project. And if the interest is immense enough, I might even push Rabbit.Hole Episode 4 off the schedule for 2021 in favor of doing a "Profiles" videos for a different Overwatch lady.

I'm not making any promises, though. Pay special attention to all of the "if" and "might" in this response.

Hey Aardvark! So I kind of have a suggestion about the submitted models. With what models are currently in the voting cycle, what if you were to close new submissions until all current models have been in the wheel, then open it again and have a new batch of submitted models. So basically they all have a better chance.

LordAardvark

It's viable, but then it means that submissions will be closed for a very long time. Assuming 2 weeks per model (which generally only gets them about 90% done, but it's all I'm willing to spend on them right now), at 18 models currently up for voting, that'd be 36 weeks - or 9 months - before they've all had their chance on the wheel and voting opens up again.

And the idea of the Wheel was to having it slowly phase out the models I want done. When it wheel first began, it was all models I want done. Then with each wheel spin, the chance of me getting models I want done slowly decreases, and the chance others get models they want done slowly increases. Until eventually I have all of the models I wanted done, and all that remains are models other people want.

By closing submissions, that introduces a sort of artificial cap as to how many models can be done before all of the models I want done are made. By having the wheel be populated in perpetuity, by always keeping submissions open, then there is no theoretical upper bound. It is possible that I will only ever make models added to the wheel by voting until the end of time itself.

Very unlikely, but it is possible.

Hey, I gotta say I love your work especially saymus and Elizabeth. I just had a question. Do you think it's possible for you to work on doing maybe a short or a series using girls from Mortal Kombat?

LordAardvark

It's certainly possible! Not in any timely manner, unless stream mini-projects count, but all I need is an interesting story to work with. I don't know much at all about Mortal Kombat's characters, so I can't think of much to do with them myself.

Will Miranda appear in Blue Star?

LordAardvark

As a macguffin, certainly. She is actually fairly central to the story. As a character... it's possible, but leaning toward "no".

Hello LA. Just a short Question. Is there´re a way to submit new Outfits for already Released Models? Or do you choose Outfits spontaneously?

LordAardvark

Not currently, but it is a system that I'd like to figure out eventually. For now, probably the best solution would be to join my Discord (the link can be found at the top of my Patreon description, it's free for anyone to join) and just bring it up in #general.

Do you have to manually add your watermark to everything? Or did you make some sorta tool to make it less tedious?

LordAardvark

I have a 2160p transparent .PNG with the watermark in the lower-left corner. I simply add this image as a layer on top of the video or image and adjust the opacity. EZPZ.

Do you still use this commissions page?: https://lordaardvarksfm.firebaseapp.com/calc.html Either way, do you do commissions right now? Great work and thanks.

LordAardvark

No. I need to figure out how the fuck to take that site down. I've been getting emails for years off it. I haven't done commissions since, like, 2016. And I never will again. Never.

Just out of curiosity, when will DAZ V5 D.Va be released publicly? Thank you, can't wait to see more work of her. 2021 is a long way away. 😅

LordAardvark

I've had the content dump, with her included, uploaded onto my fileserver for a few weeks now. I just have to upload it.

That being said, she's currently broken, which is why there hasn't been a formal release.

I am hoping to fix her and formally release her in August.

Hello Lordaardvark. I can´t lie, that I really enjoy how much interessted in ME is in the last weeks votes. I hope it will go on. :D It makes me wondering about EDI, which I honestly would be interessted in very much. If I remember correctly you were interessted in her years ago aswell, but it wasn´t possible, because of her Textures. So I was wondering in general, if I would ask for EDI in the votes would that be a legit submission? Or would it be declined, because it is not possible, even if the result could be a highquality port only? Dear Greetings. :)

LordAardvark

Jack and EDI are both in a special class of models that I would reject being put onto the Wheel of Indecision, because their texture-work is essential to their character, and it is simply beyond me. I would need to get together special accommodations, find a texture artist to work with, when it comes to building those two. And the way the Wheel of Indecision works means that isn't really feasible, unfortunately.
