Tara’s been shaping up in the forum’s thanks again to everyone who’s had their input, Tara’s definitly become a better person for it :) Or has she? As they say about school there’s only so much you can learn in theory, it’s the practical application that makes the master. From what I hear Tara is the ambitious type and has been hitting the books hard. But have all the late hours of study paid off?

 

Tara’s First Assignment – part 1

Well, it’s time for her first assigment, her first test. I’ve managed to sneak a quick peak at the score board and it reads as follows:

Subject:

thorough oral examination

with the criteria being:

  1. the ability to stretch kissing unit to allow entry of extemely large objects
  2. the ability to sustain a strong and steady sucking motion
  3. the ability to consistently maintain sexy look and hotness as said tasks are carried out

Sound like Tara’s got a hell of a test ahead of her. Let’s wish her luck and hope she passes the exam with flying colors :)

So yeah… :D with this first part I wanted to put up some of the iterations Tara’s gone through to where she’s at now. She’s come some ways from her awkward beginnings and is progressing in the visual department. I’d really like to know what you think of her face. Of course the idea is for her to look sexy and beautiful, but um… let me know if she’s on her way or needs more work and if so, what areas.

Which brings me to a second point. The many faces/ expressions of Tara. Of course there’s little we know about Tara other than her adventures with Ayako. But given your initial impression of her or judging by the images. What kind of personality would you want her to have?

So here’s the vote, let me know what character type suits her best and we may manage to explore it more in one of her sets!

What kinda girl do you want Tara to be?

This is the first part of this series, the next will feature Tara playing with that huge cock. Let’s see how well she does :)

And let me know what you think of Tara in the comments below!

 

Tara’s First Assignment – part 2

Tara seems just a little apprehensive as she actually comes face to face with the big cock, but apparently she quickly warms to the idea of wrapping her lips around that massive shaft and she and starts licking and kissing the big shlong. Wait, it seems there’s even a bit of a romance developing between the two love birds. Proves the point that the way to a woman’s heart is… a big cock, lol.

Speaking of big cocks, as is usually the case experiments in the forums resulted in all sorts of sizes and being 3DX the limits were pushed. Here are the huge and WTF cock versions. Which should Tara be sucking on?

Tara’s done with the foreplay. Next up, she’s going in! How far down that cock will she go? Let’s find out!

 

Tara’s First Assignment – part 3

You picked the big cock, which has it’s consequences :)

Can Tara handle the huge cock or give her a break?

There’s a forth and final part to this series, where Tara goes beyond the call of duty :) … cuming very soon :)

    Hi there ! You did very nice work with Tara and Sayako, judging by the trailer I’ve seen. I’m doing traditional animation and I know how it can be hard sometimes. But you did pretty good.

    Anyway, I get to know affect 3D after running on an animated gif of part 3. But I can’t find any animated gif here so where it is, please ?

    I’ll wait for your future works with great interest, and maybe I’ll buy GF4E ’cause it looks great.

    Take care ^^

    On very much a side-note, how come most of the time the polls indicate (via bold) options that I never selected? ie, it’s telling me on this page: ‘sexy girl’ (nope, stuck up bitch was my choice), ‘both are way too big’ (nope, ‘keep the big size’, ‘She can stretch and take a much bigger cock (nope, ”A little too much…’), and on the side, ‘Dick Girl’ (nope, the four below that actually).

    Maybe I’m misunderstanding what bold means in those?

      If you are looking at live polls the bold options should indicate what you’ve voted for that is correct. Is someone else also using your computer? It’s only natural they’d want to join in the fun :)

        (hopefully this replies to the right one)
        I’m not criticizing, I’m saying it tongue in cheek. I was one of the ones that wanted thicker. I just happen to like the idea of the girl getting all stretched, finishing up saying ‘OMG, I’m ruined! I wonder if I can do him again tomorrow?’

        lol that’s one of the reason I think Tara is hotter… her breasts are much more desirable and attractive to me. AND, AAAND… she has an innie, and a really nice body. And, she’s gonna have an even more amazing butt. So of course she’s the hottest one! Sayako does have a better face and hair though.

      Yes apparently you don’t like girls looking in the camera! I can tell by the caps!… having said that would it be acceptable to cater for both crowds??… because as far as I can count most of the images are Tara looking at the guy? But I do like to throw in images with her looking into the camera, which I personally love and in mind involves the viewer more and has nothing to do with porn! But as I said there are plenty for both!

    His cock is about slide deep down Tara’s mouth and throat, literally where no man as gone before :)

    A warning though, if you don’t like stretch get ready to squeal like a school girl :D

    Stuck-up model seems to fit the story and the WIP pictures the best. She’s too opinionated to be a sweet little GND, and at the same time too timid to be into BDSM.

    Of course, my choice would now be the least popular. -_-

      I know exactly what you mean, by that time I’d done about a million renders of that scene and realized I had gone back to an earlier version with the bump turned up to high. But it was late and couldn’t be bothered changing it yet again. I really should have though, seeing that it’s kinda the main image. I’ll fix it though, can’t have her offering her middle finger with shriveled hands now can we :)

    you can developpe two personality.one for the normal Tara and an pother for the dickgirl version.
    I have vote for sexy girl and i valid the order of the oral criter ability.
    When i saw Tara showing her finger like this, i have think she can put it in Sayako asshole ( or whynot in the meat of her cock).
    I think Tara face is actuallu well done and don’t need more work

    I went with Stuck-up model. I like the idea of her getting into sticky situations from mouthing off and pushing people too far. Then, of course, she finds herself enjoying not being treated like a goddess, but would never admit it afterward…

    Mr. Big Dick is fairly normal. Starts off small when soft, then bloats up as she sucks him to the point where her insulting comments early on are all-but laughable (“WTF? What happened to the little rice-noodle?!?”) :-D

      Keep watching, I’ve heard that when a call was made for additional donors Sayako jumped at the opportunity of providing her cock for secondary testing ;)
      Tara may even comment on the test results of both :D

      As soon as she starts putting big sausages in her mouth, she’ll have her nails back :)

    The poll choices are…. bizarre… to say the least.

    Stuck up model and cocky bitch kinda seem like the same thing. I don’t like BDSM, and the girl next door makes her too average and obtainable. Kinda crappy for a model, takes the fun out of it.

    I kinda like the cocky attitude like in the picture of her flipping the bird, the innocent kitten thing… eh, it’s okay but I’m not really too much a fan of it.

    I guess to just make her a sex crazed model, the option would be sexy girl? I dunno.

      aw, can’t believe you don’t like my outrageously creative personality types :(

      She’ll live up to the sex crazed part though, I’m guessing :D

    Err… I think you want “Oral” there. “Aural” means “having to do with the ears.”

    I really, really hope you mean “Oral.”
