Default Advent calendar and story
Heya!
I'm Harley, and I've been a longtime occasional lurker around this place. Been a looner since forever though and you might know me from C&B, Pop-o-rama, the Buddylist or my own site with media sightings of balloons and other inflatable stuff (or all blowing, really.)

Like some previous years, I've made an advent calendar with balloons (and other things) and was recommended to post about it here as well. It consists of a story with strong looner themes (particularly in part 2, which is up by now) and illustrations to it, with a new one being posted every day.
There is a brief synopsis here:
http://harley.looner.info/2016/outline.html
and the actual calendar is here:
http://harley.looner.info/2016/calendar16.html

The story, even with its heavy fetish content, is however mainly a lighthearted romance in the girl/girl genre, co-written with my wife for the female perspective. (When I say 'romance' I mean erotica, of course - the content gets explicit at times so you might want to stay away if that offends you. The illustrations, however, are pretty tasteful.)

Hope you'll find something you like, and happy holidays!
/Harley

I haven't had the chance to read the story yet, but I'm looking forward to it The calendar itself was really nice. How do do you use to make the pictures?

Wow, what a story. ^^

I like how casual the girls display their sexyness but I have to ask how many of the girls really have a fetish for balloons? For me it seemed that most of them only interact with them in a sexy manner because of the job.

It's cool how much Cheryl and Crystal are into each other in the last part of the story. That Chris has a doll of Cheryl is cute.

I wanted to ask if the girls are generally poppers or if some of them keep their toys unharmed apart from when it's required for a show? And do they like pooltoys too or rather not?
Are there balloons or pooltoys they would not pop (if they like pooltoys)?

Sorry for all the questions but I got really interested. ^^"
They all have such interesting personalities.
Will there be more of them?

Thanks for the interest! Glad you liked it I'll adress the questions in order:
I setup the scenes in Second Life and take screenshots used as basis for painting in Photoshop. The lack of male models are mostly because SL male bodyshapes are really bad. Here is a comparison of screenshot vs. final painting as a measure of how much I do on my own: http://harley.looner.info/2016/comparison.jpg

There MIGHT be something similar next year, but maybe less elaborate. I enjoy creating pictures and stories and I hope it shines through!

Well, fetish-wise I'd say they are overall more general hedonists than true balloon lovers, but in my fictional world balloons are accepted as a pretty common fetish - hence the emphasis on such content on-stage. And in their line of work, whatever is used to turn the audience on becomes sexy by extension. Seeing what balloons do to guys make them VERY erotic objects in bed!

They are indifferent to popping as far as work is concerned, since bursting things are integral to some acts. Off-stage, however, I can easily see Mandy (for example) preferring her toys unbroken, and some others as well (Sam and Jo spring to mind, and likely Cheryl too). Carrie's a popper through and through, as is Kim (who's dated at least two genuine fetishists - more on that later).
They LOVE pooltoys - who doesn't? - because they come in so many fun shapes and colors and can be used creatively as well. In general they would prefer not to pop cute inflatables - that dolphin was a victim of circumstance!

Yes, there will be more - in fact, there already is!
I actually made 2 previous calendars if you've missed them - pictures with caps only, but still storytelling. The art's gotten a bit better since then though.

http://harley.looner.info/2014/calendar.html

You might have seen the following link elsewhere but I made a story for halloween too - set a year or so before the calendar book and involving the whole gang (with dates. Kim's might have a special interest.) playing truth or dare with the dares hidden inside balloons.
Here are the links; one story and two illustrations!

Hope that answers your questions! I have one of my own - do you think the illustrations fit or matched the descriptions/moods in the story? (As a freelance illustrator, it's good to know if one hits the mark!)
Also, apologies for the neutral backdrops in the casino scenes - there was simply too much work trying to paint the full setting so I focused on the actions

/Harley

PS. Some of the latest pictures didn't turn out QUITE the way I wanted so I've touched them up a bit. 8, 12, 15, 18, 21 and 25A will soon be replaced by updated versions, so download them if you want to keep the first versions too!

Thanks for answering all my questions and the links to your other works. ^^

For me most of the illustrations were pretty fitting you did a good job on them and with the neutral backgrounds I could better focus on what happened in them.

Cool that the girls are a mix of poppers and non-poppers (semi-poppers) makes for great variety.
And it's good to hear that they like pooltoys and generally try to not pop them. Would be nice to have more scenes with pooltoys but that's just personal preference. ^^

Thanks again for sharing this great story and artwork.

As I mentioned above, I have now updated some pictures I wasn't quite happy with. I feel they're at least a bit better now!
These are the new ones:
