Zanfadar/Navsquid - Changing Roles

Well......I guess I was wrong.  One more piece to post for 2014.  This one came out just in time.  Drawn by Zanfadar and colored by Navsquid.

Obviously it doesn't fit this current season quite as well ;p - but I'm sure not waiting till next summer to post it.  Always treat your pets as you would like to be treated!  Otherwise, you never know, but Mistress Arianna might have something to say to you.

DrGonz - Retro DL Advertisement

Well, it seems as though this wasn't TransRepo Industries first venture into the [potentially] profitable business of adult diapers.  DrGonz dug up this retro-looking advertisement - which appears to have been put together for publication in a fashion magazine in the mid-70s. 

If anyone has more information on this, feel free to drop a line.  Thanks.

Any suggestions on post formatting that'd make it easier to show this in it's original magazine format spread?  I can try combining the images too I guess.

Next Poll Discussion (please read before voting)

Before you vote in the next poll - should be posted shortly - I'd like you to just review this note.

Things are taking longer than I'd expected on several projects - although others are rolling along pretty smoothly all things considered.  That said....I'd like to bounce some ideas off you - specifically what you regard as fair pricing for a donation project offered through my site.

I have trouble sometimes thinking of a fair price for my material compared to what I see elsewhere.  On the one hand, sometimes it's a very large number of pages/images that I've paid a significant amount of money for up front - and a significant amount of time has been spent on each piece by the respective artists.  On the other hand, they're not my original artworks, just my concepts.

Keeping in mind that 30% of each donation price (before fees) goes directly back to the artist (or a similar percentage with the forthcoming anthology piece(s)) - and that I suck up the paypal fees in every case - please choose the options(s) - multiple options will be available - that best reflect what you'd be willing to pay for a donation art project - try using the visualization of your favorite fetish (ie. TF, TG, AB, WG, etc) and favorite artist for the max amount ;p

It's not really a big deal honestly...I've got a lot of pending projects and a ton of new ideas - I've never made much back on these (with a couple notable exceptions - most of these barely pay for themselves if that) - but they do help fill in the gaps on different pieces from time to time.


Edit - by "unique images" in the poll, I mean sequential images in a non-page format - such as "Champagne Wishes" by cluedog - NOT a gallery of unrelated images.

Cobalt_k - Portraits (1905)

Sincerely apologize for the lack of a post last night.  As I'm sure you're all aware, all schedules begin to get a little more hectic during the holiday season.  That said, I do still have a few more pictures available...with many more on the way.

Starting with this one by Cobalt_k - the first in what I hope will be a long set of period portraits of Mistress Arianna.

Synthean - Instructional Video 5

Apologies for the delay folks.  As we get further and further through this reel of film, it can take longer to restore - between age, damp and the like.

It is interesting to see what TransRepo Industries was able to develop so many years ago....and whether it has any bearing on their current projects...I guess we'll have to wait and see.

0pik-0ort - Cooking With Trina 2

"And we're back from our short commercial break - as always, our top sponsor here at "Cooking with Trina" is our network TR-I TV - and their parent company TransRepo Industries."

"Would you believe it...I completely forgot to start the oven before our little break.  As I said before, this is a slightly smaller turkey than we would normally use, so we won't need more than 30 minutes or so in the oven...particularly since we're fortunate to be able to demonstrate a brand new RoastMaster 3000 courtesy of TransRepo Industries.  With this baby, we're able to cook a lot more in a fraction of the time it would normally take."

"Excuse me while I take another drink of water - I must say - I'm feeling positively parched.  I think that basting sauce was a little saltier than I expected - and it certainly feels a little drier in here than normal...still, it's always best to stay well hydrated while in a hot kitchen."

Solios - New Comic!

Ok...normally I do these at the end of the year (or start of the new year) - and there will be one again this year - but for a friend, I definitely owe a big push for this right now.

If you've been following Among The Chosen over the years - and if you haven't, you owe it to yourself to check it out - you'll be very happy to see that the first hard copy collection is now available in print.

This is a truly epic sf comic with some amazing ideas, great concepts, beautiful art, smart writing and unique themes.  It's been running for well over 10 years now - and there's plenty more to go.  Moreover - picking up this book will help support another great artist!  Check out a copy today!


Side note...I'm experimenting with "scheduled posting" this week due to possible travel issues....hopefully posts will show up on time, but if not...we'll figure it out after the fact.

Thanks.  Have a great Thanksgiving week!

0pik-0ort - Cooking With Trina 1

"Hi and welcome to this week's special episode of "Cooking with Trina" here on TR-I TV.  I'm your host Trina Kowalski and this is our annual Thanksgiving holiday prep episode."

"We've got a number of special dishes to demonstrate this hour, but we'll begin with everyone's favorite - the roast turkey - not least because it takes the longest to prepare.  For a special treat this year, we're demonstrating a new product by our sponsor TransRepo Industries.  As you can see, our sample turkey is considerably smaller than I would normally consider appropriate for serving a gathering of 8 to 10 adults, but as part of our special, we have a new basting recipe to sample.  Not only is this mixture expected to enhance the flavor significantly, but I've been informed that it should actually have some moisturizing qualities that may actually cause the turkey to swell a little during the cooking process."

"I should emphasize at this point that our new recipe will not be available in time for the holiday season this year, but is expected to be on store shelves by this time next year.  In the meantime, those of you at home can follow along as our cooking procedures should have no other differences in cook time or temperature for a similarly sized bird."

"And there, as you can see, I've applied a generous basting over the entire turkey in the pan - the leftover juices will collect in the bottom of the pan where they can be absorbed during the cooking process.  Hmmm, that is a nice flavor - maybe a little saltier than I would normally use, but given the amount of liquid and the generally bland nature of turkey meat, I think it will have the desired effect."

"We'll just set the timer and begin on the mashed potatoes."

Remembrances II

In recognition of Veterans Day / Remembrance Day / Armistice Day, cluedog has drawn a beautiful piece featuring Milton Caniff's own Miss Lace

I'd say it's a fitting tribute given Caniff's support for the troops and our ongoing themed work "South Pacific Follies."

So, once again an idea that came to me far too late...but worth putting out for folks who are interested.

As [I certainly hope] you're aware, 11 November is Veterans Day (and Remembrance Day or Armistice Day for most of our allies). 

Honestly...I don't have a lot going on this year (better planning in advance would have helped).  Next year I should really try and make it up to DC or something for one of the ceremonies.  That said, I would like to try and work out some sort of special post on the 11th.  No idea how well it will work out - but if you have any inclination to put any sort of remembrance artwork, I would love to do a special post here on the blog (whether or not it's been posted elsewhere before).

Not a paying project with this timeline, and not intended to cover any TF/TG or process themes - just a simple post honoring those who have gone before.

Pink-Diapers - Which Witch?

One last little Halloween commission from a favorite artist - Pink-Diapers.  Looks like this gal might have tried out some candy that didn't quite agree with her....or rather, it agreed with her in a different way than she expected.  Wonder what flavor it was?

Three guesses where she went trick or treating...and the first two don't count.

Darkoshen - Political Civility 1

Weird....somehow I only manage to get these things aligned during the mid-terms.

I voted (by mail) - out of state...although my county seems to do all their voting that way.  That said....I'm not going to get into my politics on this site.  I'd rather just hit all sides in the art...I don't get to do enough elephant or donkey-girls as it is ;p 

Thanks Darkoshen...part 2 tomorrow!  We'll see who comes out on top.

Rellen - Beyond Another Rainbow

Apologies for a belated Halloween post - some things work out, some don't.  That said, I'm very happy with the way this one turned out.  Admittedly, I don't normally like to work with established characters, but the variations on these costumes (references) just seemed like too good of a thing to waste for once.  I might try something like this again.  It did turn out as a nice first project with Rellen.

Caption Challenge Results!

Wow!  Some stiff competition.  Glad I slept on it.

The concepts are solid in all of them but for captions, it's also a matter of meshing the images and ideas with clear text.

I think I'm going to have to give the Single Caption and Sequence Caption prizes to TG-Spain! Excellent selection of images all around and very legible captions.  The progress of related costumes was an excellent selection.

Single Caption:

 Sequence Caption:

Now, obviously I'm a sucker for poodle-girls, but I really like the way TheUnthinker worked in the combination of mental and physical changes in The Best Fur in Town.  It's a little harder to read with the uniform text, but it still works

Thanks again for all the participation.  I love seeing themed captions....not sure yet if I'll be running more direct contests in the future or just offering commissions, but feel free to drop me a note if you have suggestions.

Caption Challenge Update

Ok...this might be a bit of a cop-out, but I am wiped out.  I don't want to try judging a contest while I'm so tired - so I'll be reviewing and posting results in the morning.

Thanks for your patience!

Caption Entry - TheUnthinker

Last set of captions for this Caption Challenge.  They all come from TheUnthinker - some very unique concepts here - let's hope we see more captions from them in the future.

Caption Entry - FurCo

A great little caption by FurCo!  Slightly on the darker side of things...as these things go ;p

Diggerman - Accessorize That Look for Halloween

Been following Diggerman for a while now...just never seemed to have a good chance to commission him - until now!  This concept seemed right up his alley as befits a Halloween themed piece.

I'd say $20 for a costume like one in this comic would be practically a steal!


Halloween Posting Extravaganza!

Well folks - been an interesting Halloween - first one back on the mainland for a while...maybe not that long...but different stuff going on other years.  I've put together a number of new projects with new and familiar artists...so much so in fact...that I think I'll save some of it for posting this weekend as well.

Partly to savor the weekend - and partly because I'm tired.  Long week and today ran a little late with errands and other things tonight (not to mention watching the Directors Cut of Nightbreed on blu-ray - look for a review at the sister blog very soon).

Still...plenty of goodness for tonight...just take it in slowly...

First up - from blackshirtboy - not sure how...but apparently Max regained his normal form after the last Fashion Pageant.  Not sure why he would choose to do his Halloween shopping at La De Baucherie Magique....maybe he's just a glutton for punishment...or maybe it was a free gift?

One night closer to the haunting Halloween extravaganza.  I do love me some Pumpkin Pie...and thankfully 0pik-0ort is a fan too!

0pik-0ort - Mmmm Pie! #1

Tonight marks the first night of Halloween week and what is intended to be a slew of original posts - including a number of artists never before featured on the site (most of whom are long overdue). 

(alright....to be totally honest, nearly all the new art will be going up on Friday night (when else?)) - but we've got some fun all week...and then as mentioned before...running into next week as well.

Starting off with a piece by 0pik-0ort - well...one pic a night ;p  I really love pumpkin pie.  Honestly...this year there seems to be an abundance of it - mini-pies at the grocery store (great for single servings), various coffee types, pumpkin pie poptarts, pumpkin cream hershey kisses, pumpkin cream/pumpkin pie donuts all over the place....'course next year I might be sick of them all...but honestly, right now I can't get enough of the stuff....(really need another pumpkin pie blizzard at DQ too - maybe this weekend).

Honestly...don't think I need too many tags on this one...but I'm sure we'll see some special ones pretty soon ;p  Shouldn't give away too much up front.

Okayokayokok - Cutting Costs

It can be really tough to run a small business....especially a restaurant.  The stats say something like 80% of small businesses will fail in their first year of operation...and I think the numbers are even worse for restaurants.  The following piece by Okayokayokok is one I've wanted to illustrate for a long time. 

Sometimes you might just get lucky...one wish is all it could take to turn things around.
