First off, I must sincerely apologize for the delayed response to the healthy inputs I received for the pageview count contest. I've been on a bit of a little roadtrip since last Friday and my internet access (and admittedly cellphone access) has been a little spotty to say the least. Certainly wetter than the last few times I drove cross-country (Aug 2014, Dec 2012, Oct 2012, and Mar 2010) - I mean in just the last couple of days I've almost been washed off the road several times - E. Colorado, N Central Utah, S. Idaho, etc. Still, at least no snow/ice so far (fingers crossed) - it's raining/hailing outside my motel window here in MT right now :) From my previous trips....I didn't think it ever really rained in S. Idaho - at least not like today - but then again, I've only driven I-84/86 - this is my first time doing I-15. Gotta say...yesterday was my first time driving I-70 west of Denver though - and that was pretty amazing!
Sooooo, getting down to brass tacks, there were 2 entries actually showing 5,000,000, but one was several minutes earlier - so congratulations to Jbrey - I will be working with him to figure out which project he gets with the [available] artist of his choice. Congrats Jbrey! And thank you very much to everyone else who participated and who I was unable to find the time to email via my cellphone mid-drive :)
Hopefully I'll get some more pics and posts updated a little later this week with some more network stability...we shall see.
A concept that's been bouncing around for a long time - it's certainly been used in plenty of SRU stories - and I have used the shoplifting project as part of larger projects too. That said, it's a fun little idea - definitely one to use again in the future.
Hamotilok generally specializes in petrification and inanimate transformations - which I felt fit this project a little more closely than some others.
You'd think a place like La De Baucherie Magique might get a reputation....then again, if nobody ever makes it out after a "job"...nobody gets the message?
Unfortunately again - like my most recent Illustrated Stories posting, Danielsangeo got me the pictures a while back and it's taken me a little longer than planned to get everything formatted and uploaded properly. My apologies.
However, I'm finally able to post an illustrated version of one of my favorite SRU stories - one I've read numerous times over the years since I first came across it - probably soon after it was first posted in '99. I'm very happy to present:
Well, I failed to post the notification at the time of posting the most recent Donation Art piece, but Oppaiman's most recent submission was rotated out at this time. In keeping with traditions, I'll be posting the full sequence over this week.
Well, under most circumstances, I wouldn't feel the need to add to a completed project - but this concept really spoke to me - and I believe it serves equally well as a bit of closure to a character arc and a segue to the future. More gorgeous vintage-styled work by cluedog. I can't thank her enough for this project!
And so we find our gals in the spring of 1944, about 9 months later and 5000 miles from our last visit with them - ready to get back in the action.
I can just hear the stories now.
"Tell me grandma, what did you do during the war?"
Well, I didn't really have much of a story in mind for this one - other than wanting to see some specific designs - and I think AutumnNatural really hit all the high points with this piece.
I am very curious what you all think about a piece like this - without any dialog or major context (does anyone feel I'm doing viewers a disservice by not including dialog, etc?)....and does anyone want to try and put specific periods on each swimwear design here? I tried to hit pretty much every period style I could chronologically - going both ways :) As always...I really do appreciate real feedback!
A beautiful piece by Navetsea - in his very unique and recognizable style!
For this project, we're transitioning back to La De Baucherie Magique and it's proprietress Mistress Arianna.
This piece just follows a few customers who come across the store while
window-shopping - and their experiences. Includes general LDB tropes
including Candy (with a slightly more conventional look), and the Wishing Stones.
Available exclusively through the donation project - 21 pages (including cover) with full B&W comic pages in a
high quality pdf file - some color elements on key images - for a donation of at least $7.50 - and 30% of that goes directly to the artist!
sequences (M2F and F2M), BE,
multi-breast, multiple animal-girl transformations, inanimate
transformations, some shrinking, clothing transformations, implied
AP/time shifts, some BE/body swelling/pregnancy. Nudity. As a bonus -
this zip file also includes a 2nd pdf that includes the full project in
the original B&W pencils only for those purists out there.
Once more - just take $1 off the total donation
amount for each additional project after the first one - but - as always
- please list all the project names in your donation note.
No fooling this time around - AutumnNatural put together a beautiful sequence here - to my somewhat....exacting standards :) Only seems fair to draw it out a little over the weekend to take advantage of the time.
I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do.
via wikipedia: "Beachcombing is an activity that consists of an individual "combing" (or searching) the beach and the intertidal zone, looking for things of value, interest or utility."
Nobody's resources are inexhaustible, but with your assistance, I can continue providing high quality commissions from a wide variety of artists in a variety of styles.

Please, if you have donated and not received any email links, check your junk mail folder just in case. I respond to every single donation and if you didn't list which project you wanted in the paypal "note" section, I contacted you to verify your choice.
*ADDITIONALLY* - please verify that the email account attached to your paypal account is still valid. If you've deactivated the account that shows up next to your name in the paypal receipt - and my emails bounce back - I have no other way to contact you.
Under optimal conditions - what's the most you'd pay for a donation project?
