Zeito misuseAs the creator of the fanloid, Zeito shion, I wanted to publicly express my distress with the misuse of Zeito on Deviant Art and Youtube. It has come to my attention that many Zeito abusers are not even aware that I feel this way so I wanted to make this public.Zeito misuse2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now....before you say something like:
"Just because you're the creator of the character doesn't mean you can tell people how to portray their art!"
You're right. You are ABSOLUTELY right. I CAN'T tell any of you how to portray Zeito. If any of you read this and come to the conclusion
"I don't care what the creator thinks. I'm going to portray Zeito how I want!"
That is your right and I can not stop you.
The purpose of this journal isn't to stop people how they do their art. It is to publicly announce how I feel about the Zeito artwork I see and how I have always wished Zeito to be portrayed. That is all....
So with out further a due...
Zeito does NOT smile
Zeito is known for never showing ANY emotion upon his
AFS on MMD Advanced Tutorial Part 1ChangelogAFS on MMD Advanced Tutorial Part 12 years ago in Personal More Like This
12/29/12 - Published
09/19/13 - Updated video links
08/05/14 - Added PacP's video translated by ryukendo123
Please note that this tutorial is made by audiencefromspace as of 12/29/12 specifically designed for the 3D animation program MikuMikuDance and not any other animation programs. MikuMikuMoving has similarities with MMD but due to some changes with that it would be better to assume that this won't work with it. I made this with very limited knowledge I accumulated from my experience and other tutorials as well as NO PROPER SCHOOLING (Yes you can do it without going to any animation schools). I tested these theories myself over and over to ensure credibility. This will also assume that you at least know the basic functions of MMD, otherwise go watch the video in VPVP site again.
Terminologies marked with ASTERISKS are terms I just made-up to make them easy to remember
ex. Normal curve**
Also PacP made interpolation tutorials already a long time ag
MMD is artThis has been weighing on my mind for a little while. I see time and time again, people (non MMDers obviously) who bash others who use MMD saying that it is not art and it is "illegal" because it uses someone else's work.MMD is art3 years ago in Personal More Like This
First I would like to address the incorrect notion that it is illegal:
The modelers give the users permission to use their model by making it available for public download. Therefore, it is indeed legal as long as credit is given where credit is due and the terms and conditions of usage are being properly followed.
Secondly, MMD (MikuMikuDance for those of you who aren't familiar with the term, is a 3D posing and rendering freeware that involves usage of 3D models) is art. People put their time and energy into creating beautiful pictures and videos using MMD.
I myself have spent a whole day on one video just making sure that it was perfect and I know others who have done the same as I have. Also, art is a form of expression. MMD is a program that people use to express

YOU SHOULD NOT MISUNDERSTAND WHAT THE KINDNESS MEANS.
Why does no one scolded they?
This state keep producing tragedy.
Thank you that some people understand what thing is wrong and what is rule.
I know some oversea (not only Western) people keep the rules.
(I have stoped distributing for oversea people if I think that all of oversea people don't keep the rules. lol)
at least I distribute my models FOR SUCH PEOPLE WHO KEEP THE RULES.
"guys" that I wrote here are not such people.
You should scold your friend if she/he writes hints of password or breaks the rules.
It is the true KINDNESS.

Drawing References & ResourcesUpdated: Aug 13 2012Drawing References & Resources7 years ago in Personal More Like This
EVEN MOAR SKIN SWATCHES!
The best way to improve is to draw from real life. That's the best way to learn. If you don't know how to draw a certain angle of a hand or an arm, you shouldn't fudge it, you should always look it up and figure out how to draw it right. Hiding the hands behind the body is a no-no, people! The proof of bsing is easy to see: http://neofox.deviantart.com/journal/ART-knowledge-is-power-282518336
But often it's very hard to weed through the crap to find good stock to use as reference. So here I am, doing the work for you and naming some helpful resources.
I've been teaching my friend Kitteh how to draw, so I'm learning first hand just what steps to take to improve.
There's one very special thing you must do to improve. With this special thing you can go from amateur to pro. And that's PRACTICE. You can get all the references and tutorials you want, buy all the books, save all the tutorials and referenc

Animation Advice.for :iconFAStrike1995: I have some advice.Animation Advice.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Get to understand the physics of things, what's logical and what's not. Whenever I'm not animating I find myself observing things around me. How does it work... how does it move... What's it look like when it turns or spins... And how would I make it in flash?
If you have trouble remembering things take notes.
Learn to prepare for executing movements.
Per say, While animating think about movements being logical, how the frame will work. What will happen next.
Learn to make your own storyboards that you can come back to and understand.
Storyboards should be made on paper, it's faster and you don't have to browse through frames.
I use things like boxes with arrows to direct camera movement. This can allow you to find how you're going to make your shot without spending hard effort in flash to make it look the way you want. And sometimes can stop you from deleting a scene that doesn't fit in.
This should help you out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?

a little tampering it will. so simple.
SO to the point:
first of all you need to get sai, you can buy it or you can download it for free. i cant recommend sites but there are some out there where you can download sai for free.
::conversion:: (it only looks long, it is simple and guaranteed to work)
right click the programs icon and then click 'properties'
when the properties dialogue box appears click the 'capability' tab on the top
then click 'run capability troubleshooter'
when it's done looking at it click 'try recommended settings'
then 'test the program'
when i did it, it came up with a warning "do you want to allow the following program from an unknown publisher make changes to this computer" i clicked yes and then it should run sai and it should work normally.
BUT YOUR NOT DONE YET
close the sai program
go back to the 'program capability troubleshooter' box and click next

What meants to be a Pro?I was talking with somefriends the other day, they told me that i should quit deviantart and move to this new fresh pages were profesionals are, because deviantart was filled with kids,art wannabes and social dudes. They didnt said it as something disrespectful oe something, they were just giving me a nice advice to get more audience. But that got me thinking, this guy is really good this days his style its uniquegets top clients and stuff, but 5 years ago his art was really filled with flaws, he was one of those kids he was complaining deviant art was filled with.What meants to be a Pro?5 months ago in Personal More Like This
That got me thinking he has a different point of view of how been a Pro means to me. For me Pro doesnt mean professional, its a short word for PROMISE. Pro artists are people that can keep a promsie, and thats really important. Its so sad when they relate Pro word to art skills, its like they draw this red line on the floor and they measure people who can get in and who gets out. When its the moment when an artist feel

I know not, whether the microscopic drives will last long enough and whether the plastic and metal which composes them will not disintegrate into dust as centuries pass or whether the titanium shell encasing them will remain in place or be consumed by the ever-changing landscape, lost forever.
And yet I still have hope that someone will find the story of my life, long past and learns something of use from it.
If you are still human, then this will be a story about the collapse of civilization of your forefathers through greed and arrogance.
If you are some other species entirely, then it is a story about how our human race was extin
