This next piece is a little different - and I'm particularly happy with it and how it turned out as a standalone piece. Honestly....it's not actually my first piece of commissioned fan-art for another artist's OC - but it's pretty close. But this is definitely the first piece of art commissioned specifically in response to an artist I found through Cheasy's podcasts.
Sal Valia was featured on S2E2 of the Changing Times transformation podcast. Through his participation, I found out about his excellent transformation-themed fantasy comic "The Out Of Placers." I gotta say, he's really done an excellent job with world-building here. A number of different, unique races and species - very different from the average fantasy tropes - he goes into some detail on the background on the podcast which I highly recommend. The characters themselves are well formed and grow on you very fast. This became an instant must-read for me after I went through the archives and I look forward to every new post.
Honestly...one of the few webcomics that's ever resonated with me on a really emotional scale - ie. this strip. Talk about sad.
Anyhoo....I love the character of Isher - and she does have some similarities to some of the other characters I've been working on. After seeing this pic of her - I really had to commission something too.
Soooo, work took up so much time yesterday, I never even had a chance to get on my computer or check email or anything. Not cool. Guess we'll just have to post an extra pic tonight and tomorrow to make up for it. Thanks again LordAltros!

Well, slowly inching closer to the 5 year mark (April 9) and the 5 million pageview mark. I'm guessing we'll hit the date first but what the heck. Honestly...I don't have any big plans for celebrating the anniversary at this time (although plenty of additional projects in the works). Any gift art is very graciously appreciated as always. Your donations in support of artists featured here is also greatly appreciated - and ALWAYS goes to fund more art.
That said...I did have one little idea regarding a "celebration" of sorts. The first person to send me a screenshot of 5 million views - or the closest number *over* 5 million ("The price is wrong!") will win a $250 commission of their choice from the artist of their choice - pending artist availability and content approval. So obviously....there's a bit of leeway there on my end, but it is my money.
You take the shot, let me know what you want to see by whom - and we'll see what we can do. Nothing guaranteed.
And what the heck...I'd really like to see a little more viewer participation here in the comments as well. I enjoy reading feedback on DA or FA - but it'd be nice to have the opportunity to respond directly on my site too. Might have to make some future project posting contingent on comments - as I've done previously :)
Still planning on upgrading/moving the site - but it'll probably happen later in the year when I have a little more time.

A beautiful new sequence by LordAltros. I'll be honest up front. There's not much story here - just a sequence I wanted to see that I knew this artist could handle perfectly :)
Two pics a night for the rest of the week. Enjoy!

In reference to my last post - following my participation, I did take the time to go back and download and listen to all the other podcast episodes. I enjoyed them all a great deal - they brought back a lot of good memories of different sites and interactions over the years - even if I don't know all the folks involved. It helps that I have already commissioned work from several of the featured artists - with more on the way!
I highly recommend giving them all a listen. Cheasy has put a LOT of work into their production and has done a great job moderating these for the community. A nice little series of time capsules and snapshots if you will. I gave him a few recommendations of other folks who I'd love to hear on his program in the future - we'll see if any of them show up.
Today's update is a set of updates on the Gift Art/Request page. New art by Gnome-oo, an update to an art contest entry by zdemian and a piece of cluedog art colored by technosasquatch.

Well, this is one unique piece. I was invited a few months ago to participate in Cheasy-Dino's TF-themed podcast "Changing Times." It was a real honor to participate in this sort of project - my first time ever - and my first real skype session too ;p In retrospect, I should have listened to the rest of the episodes beforehand to get a better feel for things, but I think it turned out really well (but boy...I'm a little long-winded when it comes down to it). Next time I'll try and prep some more specific references rather than droning on and on. I did have some specific artists in mind when I made some of my comments, but I hope they weren't too specific and that nobody takes offense at my personal opinions here. Both Cheasy-Dino and Pheagle were really great folks to talk with and I enjoyed myself immensely!

Well, looks like we managed to recover the next portion of the video with a little less difficulty. Might just be due to the fact that we're getting closer to the end of this roll of film.
Looks like Synthean's been able to do a really good job with the reconstruction this time around - although truth be told, I'm still having a little difficulty placing the exact time and places being referenced here.

All's well that ends well. For some folks at least. Some days just wind up being more productive than others - in one way or another when it comes to La De Baucherie Magique.

Time for Candy and Mistress Arianna to head off to work at La De Baucherie Magique. What sort of customers will they encounter today? Thanks Engineskye!
Monday, March 9, 2015
Well, as one of Engineskye's last projects on the site - and his second contribution to the Donation Project, I'm happy to present "A Day in the Life" [of Candy specifically]. Honestly, I haven't seen or heard anything from Engineskye for quite a while on any of his galleries - here's hoping he's doing well out there.
I'll be spreading out posting of the sequence over the entire week - let's make it last ;p

Another excellent portrait of Mistress Arianna and Candy by CallMePo.
It seems Candy has some apparent talent for the shamisen. The kimonos are the winter variety - gets chilly in Kyoto around this time of year (well....any year).

LillyVaine is another artist who appears to have been around for a little while - judging from her DA - but for some reason, I just hadn't come across her gorgeous gallery and commissioned her.
Sooo, 'bout time we fixed that - taking advantage of her Moonagerie commission special last month.
Going with some "old dependable" looks up front as always :)
Starting off with a French Poomoodle.

Well, I wasn't necessarily expecting this to be the next donation art project completed, but that's neither here nor there.
I am extremely pleased to present the first donation art project of 2015 and the first one by master artist Zdemian!
In this case, I can't claim credit for the witty writing - I gave zdemian a set of scenarios I wanted to see and they fit them together into a new and totally unique piece that turned out amazingly well. I cannot emphasize how much I love the transformations featured in this piece. I mean, I know they've been putting out an excellent comic on a regular basis - both in artwork and writing - but seeing that skill applied to my imagination really takes things to another level (IMO ;p).
In fact, if you like this piece (and I certainly hope you do) - I urge you to check out their Patreon too! New comic pages for a variety of pieces are posted every week as well as many, many sketch requests.
Available exclusively through the donation project. 18 pages (including cover) with 16 fullsize, full color comic pages in a high quality pdf file. Bimboization, multiple, TG (M2F), BE, multi-breasts, multiple animal-girl transformations, inanimate transformations, etc. Nudity. For only $7.50 - and 30% of that goes directly to the artist!
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.

Well, even when the weather is as rotten as it is, it's never too early to start planning for the summer. After all, everyone knows that the best swimwear sales are when it's frigid outside - and the new styles are just coming out right now.
Looks like a few of Izumi's OCs heard about the Tokyo branch of La De Baucherie Magique - some real bargains to be found right about now!

Just a quick note - as mentioned previously, things are somewhat in flux, but for the time being this site will be updated on schedule - some very big projects (donation art, etc) should be ready for posting in the next few days. I expect a move of sorts eventually down the road, but don't try updating bookmarks just yet.
Thanks again for the support.
Ahhh, the roaring 20s - reign of the Charleston, speakeasies, and the flapper.
Cobalt_k managed to catch a quick glimpse of Mistress Arianna on her way to a fancy party - some joint owned by a Gatsby fella or some such.
