Hi, I'm working with my musician and he's putting in some battle music for us. Would you prefer this song, which is more rhythmic, or would you prefer the song be modified to have a bit more melody?

Hey. We're on kickstarter now! This won't be the first adult project on kickstarter, nor the first hentai game... and Kickstarter approved of the project, so we're good. I'm ecstatic to be on the biggest funding website. The project did originally launch on Offbeatr, which is an adult oriented funding website, but I've decided to get as much money from you guys as possible, so to make the best possible game of course! Special shoutout to Jared the Loan Shark up in Vegas.
With the new kickstarter, I've made a much more professional looking trailer. Well, except the live-action part with me, that was pretty embarrassing, but I've gone through worse ordeals in order to see my plans carried out. This trailer was a lot of work. Actually, just the combat scene was. Lots of animations and frameworking going on behind the scenes.
Aha! A call to arms! The Dark Planet needs to expand its audience! Call your

Larissa's breasts are mysterious. I show the character portraits around, and everyone always chooses Larissa as a favorite, and I think it's because her breasts are nondescript. Go ahead and check the first picture again... gimme your "breast" guess. It's likely the viewer has his own idea of how big they are, since she has a huge leather jacket covering them. My friend liked the smaller breasted characters and pointed out Larissa as being one of them, surprisingly.
Larissa is a lead character, so she needs to appeal to both a new audience and the returning audience from AD2. Larissa's breast size is right between what AD2's character average breast size was, and what men generally statistically like.
So what size do all men prefer? Well, if you haven't heard me rant on this, I'll bring you (and myself) up to speed.
This poll shows a skewing towards B, C, and A (or flat). Note that this poll is on a website with hentai, and generally hentai content tends to be underaged girls.
This poll is for a general audience. C's and D's are preferred.
There's an obvious correlation between preferred female age and preferred breast size. If you like younger girls, you're going to want them smaller.There is a percentage of men attracted to underaged girls. This group should be factored out, since they are not the audience I am aiming to please, but this is a very large percentage of the hentai loving population. What is the percentage of men attracted to underage? We can't say. There are statistics of men that act on these impulses illegally, but no statistics of men who simply prefer them. If I had to guess, I'd say it's somewhere around 30%, but that's just me being prejudiced. If we factor out the lolicon lovers, I have a blind estimate that most men prefer breasts between D cups and E cups.
And of course everybody loves talking about breasts. I'll be unveiling some animation stuffs soon, and I am more excited for that.
I included some references I used for Larissa's breasts. I just wanted to be more transparent about what goes on behind the scenes. It's not a tracing. I definitely used it for direction on how I wanted Larissa's nipples to look like.
My stance on copying is this: It's good to trace if you're just starting out as an artist. When you start to pick up on things, it's still good to copy and absorb other art styles. I'll occasionally hand copy some art from my favorite artists, but I don't actually show anyone this art, because it would be plagiarizing and pointless. I do it simply for practice. There's an unwritten rule communicated between the artist and the viewer that his art is original. Yet artists hone their craft by studying real life figures. It's a blurry line; Even if you trapped an artist into a room and made him draw something, it would still be based on his past perceptions and memories. Every artist has to have their unique stance on this subject. Instead of putting it into words though (as if this blog post wasn't big enough), I just included the references so you can be the judge on where I stand on copying.

Here's Isabel in sprite form, and the revised machine pistol with a cyclic rate amplifier that increases the rate of shots per burst, allowing greater control of the recoil, even in it's five round burst fire mode. Should still kick like a mule, and the back stock has programmable settings, because more guns should have computer interfaces in the future.
Also, here's some Gun Porn that I used as the main inspiration for the Cycamp 9mm!

Isabel. Notice the difference between the faces. The final one is batshit crazy and angry. While these are suppose to be sexy women, they're suppose to be cartoony in a way, too.
What I've been doing with myself-
Saw the therapist. I think his daughter was hitting on me (ahem that's very very rare btw), but I really screwed it up. I went over to my friend's house and practiced pool for an hour by myself because my sleeping schedule is so off from them. I'm hanging out with a friend online, and we just work all day together. We call it "working in the lab". I'm currently working on some animation stuff, and there's a lot of stuff that's not worth showing, but you guys will see it all when it's ready, so excuse the lack of updates.
