Will you ever produce your own web series with your own models?

LordAardvark

With entirely original characters?

Fallen Throne was going to do that. But then, as I discuss in my May Megapost, the idea grew and expanded in such a way that I ultimately decided that interactive games would serve its narrative much better than a web series ever would.

I do have rumblings of a cyberpunk (the aesthetic, not the CD Projekt Red game) story with a much more rigid and focused narrative in mind, though. Games like RUINER, films like Blade Runner 2077, shows like Altered Carbon, and musicians like Dance with the Dead have been tickling the writing side of my brain. Nothing solid has come out yet, but don't think I'm not involuntarily spending brain cycles intended for sleep on it!

Hi, sorry if you have gotten this question a lot, but I just started getting into 3D stuff and I hardly have any ideas as to what I'm doing lol. Do you know of any good resources for learning it or even just tips from yourself? Thanks!

LordAardvark

Put a pin in this!

I want to make a post sometime in the next month or two, a sort of Part 2 FAQ. And I want to address this question in it!

Is it wrong that, while watching your latest Samus video, I was kind of expecting the two scientists to get horny for watching Sam having sex for such a long time and start fucking... while continuing their research as usual? X3

LordAardvark

It was the original plan. But then the Miranda short turned out that way (that wasn't the original plan; Kasumi getting horny watching was something that just evolved naturally while writing the screenplay), and so I scrubbed it out of Phazon Experiment B's screenplay, since I didn't want to rehash the same voyeur-gets-horny trope twice.

Honestly I think it was for the better, though. The female scientist nagging the male scientist turned into a much more amusing counterweight to Samus getting her butt stuffed numb.

Are there any... "specific" fetishes that you won't do? Like incest or /ss/? And if you don't have any issues with those, would you make them like you usually make your videos, or you wouldn't included stuff like recorded lines from your usual voice actors because of said fetishes?

LordAardvark

If a character canonically is under 18, or looks under 18, then I won't touch them with a ten foot pole. That's one of the reasons why I don't use Rikku from Final Fantasy X (even though she looks as mature as the other adult characters, she is canonically 15 in FFX, and 17 in FFX-2), or any of the Life is Strange characters (even though they're all canonically 18+, due to their art style, they seem more adolescent to me, close to 15 years old - an ironic inversion of the Rikku situation).

Marie doesn't fall into this because, despite being petite, she still has the physique and head:body:extremity proportions of an adult woman. A friend I went to university with is 2 years my senior, and she looks pretty much look exactly like Marie, minus the fact she's brunette and wear glasses. Same soft round face, a stick of a body, and hilariously short. She also loves to rant on Facebook about being 28 and still getting carded whenever she goes to a bar.

So beyond that, I'm more or less open to anything that doesn't violate the "Insides should stay inside, outsides should stay outside" rule. The one exception to that being semen, which I think you can pretty safely argue is an inside that's meant to go inside someone else, and so it being outside isn't really too much a deviation (just means you're really bad at making it go inside someone else). But other things like urine and feces, those aren't sexy; neither are things like prolapsing and the like.

The content I will create is a bit more limited, just due to the fact that my works are funded by Patreon, and Patreon has more explicit rules. On the subject of, when I reached out to Patreon some months back for clarification as to what is and isn't allowed, the only thing they weren't ambiguous on was incest: they were extremely explicit when they said that incest is just straight-up banned in pornographic art.

Beast stuff is similarly hugely frowned upon by Patreon. The response I got suggested that if you can prove that the partner is sapient (capable of speech, reasoning, and consent) and is nothing more than animal-inspired, then it's probably okay. But, again, most of their response was ambiguous, and so unless it's something that's clearly not an animal, like a Krogan from Mass Effect, I prefer to err on the side of caution.

That isn't to say that I won't make things like that. But any such content won't be supported by Patreon (no wips, no teasers, no early access / 1080p), which means they take on a unique financial risk in creating. I do have some content planned in that vein (eventually), but that's all pretty far away. Ideally I would like to get in a more stable production position, with some additional people helping me work on things. Most of the projects involving these things are films, too, so that means that they're several years away - no earlier than 2025 likely, since I have to finish both Hiveship and Blue Star Episode 4 before I can even contemplate one of these films as being my next Long project.

Obviously this isn't a catch-all for what I will won't do, but I think it's a good general rule of thumb.

Is there any reason why you use the Sarah Bryant-based Samus model as opposed to "regular" Samus models, like from Smash or Other M? Not saying that the one you use is bad, far, FAR from it, just askin'.

LordAardvark

I don't like the Other M Samus' face model. The geometry is low-poly and hard to build high-fidelity flexes for, and I'm just not a fan of the shape. The Smash version is too cartoony for what I have in mind.

Those are the only reasons why I didn't use those. As to why I picked Sarah, she was one of a handful of the DOA ladies I felt best captured the idea of Samus Aran as a character. I had it boiled down to either her or Tina Armstrong. I finally picked her because I made the judgment call that no one gives a shit about Sarah Bryant. I never heard of her before I found her model on XNALara, whereas Tina is far more popular and well-known.

My judgment call was slightly off, seeing as my "usurping" Sarah Bryant into being Samus Aran has gotten the entirety of the Sarah Bryant fan-club in a tizzy. All three of them.

But I still think she's the best choice, given the alternatives.

Are there any other DOA ladies that you'd love to make some videos with? (I.e.: Classic ones like Christie and Helena or newcomers like Nyotengu, NiCO or the Venus Vacation ladies)

LordAardvark

My Discord and I have been slowly working out a project that would involve all 14 DOAFantasy ladies. With any luck, I'd like to start getting it into production in 2020, if not earlier.

Of course, that'd mean we'd have to figure out exactly how that production would manifest... Especially since it's a large project (a series, to be precise), and I'm not going to push it into the Long/Short cycle. Which means I'll need to find time to make it... Right now, a long-term stream project is the best bet, but I don't want it to dominate the stream, which means it'd be on a cycle. Even if it were a 2:1 on:off cycle (2 streams working on it, then 1 stream working on something else), that'd only be 4 days of working it every 2 months...

It's a logistical nightmare that we're still trying to figure out.

Since you like making stuff with Samus, you think you could do something Smash Bros.-related with her? By that I mean, I dunno, her having sex with Pit, Snake, Little Mac or any of the Fire Emblem pretty-boys, her having lesbian sex with Bayonetta or Zelda, a FFM or MMF threesome or some lewd crossovery stuff like that.

LordAardvark

I have nil interest. Sorry.

Have you ever considered using Eliot as the boy to- er, I mean, lucky guy in some DOA videos... or just videos in general?

LordAardvark

I couldn't give less of a shit about Eliot. Sorry.

Have you considered doing something with Honoka from DOA? Like, I dunno, her having sex with random students at her school (just one, one by one or many at once) as a schoolgirl who "really gets around" because she's got such a hot body. You could also play around with her cute-if-a-bit-airheaded personality. I know you have a very busy schedule (I just now knew about your movie project), but maybe it can be something you could consider for some time later, I just really like your style!

LordAardvark

In my headcanon, Honoka is a through-and-through lesbian whose in a committed relationship with Marie Rose (whose straight-leaning bi, but nevertheless committed to Honoka). I have a very long canon in mind about this setup, including a series (continuing off the Alternative Advertising short, with Marie being a camwhore) and two films.

And a notable part of that is Marie loving to tease about how hot Honoka is, and how "men across the world weep at the fact Honoka's gay." ;)

Will there be bodywritting skins for the daz5 models, I really loved them on daz4.

LordAardvark

Yes!

I am hoping to be able to come up with some better (and denser) writing this time around. Also want to experiment with seeing if I can combine it with the existing detail texture, to have a single shared bodywriting resource for all the models. Then I can write a tool that applies to in a general form to models, and not need to take up the texture-slots making them an additional skin!

I'd love to be able to do the same with the runny-makeup, but unfortunately that's just too convoluted, since each face texture has its own unique layout. But every megabyte saved is a good thing!
