MMD Towards an understanding of the Japanese MMDCMMD Towards an understanding of the Japanese MMDC2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Recently there has been a controversy between YamiSweet and the administrators of Bowlroll.net. The gist of it is that Bowlroll had removed some of her files from their server due to "TOS violations". However, this discussion isn't about this controversy as it's well documented and as far as the two parties are concerned it seems to have been resolved amicably and I am not, in writing this article, attempting to re-ignite the discussion. If you want to read more, please visit these pages: http://fav.me/d5ucxlq and http://fav.me/d65bv6j
I have been an admirer of Ms.YamiSweet work for quite awhile and I am definitely impressed by her level of maturity. In addition, I really do feel she did all she could to handle the situation well. As unlike many DA MMDers, she has, to the best of my knowledge, always taken pains to do things correctly.
What is more worrisome, however, are some of the comments on these pages and this is what this article wi
First Tutorial of 2014!Took a little time to make a weighting tutorial. Its basically showing work flow on how to deal with some area's of the body specifically in PMX editor because of its nature. The technique can be used on almost all parts of the body that I didn't have time to go over. I tried to cover the most important aspects of weighting so it should be enough to help or get you started while using the PMX editor.First Tutorial of 2014!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I apologize for the length of the video but I thought you guys might appreciate me showing as much as I could. Usually weighting takes days and usually takes classes to do professionally so to condense it down isn't easy..
Also went over a little bit of the trick for knee pads that I didn't share when Ani-Chan was being worked on. ^^
This new version has enhanced audio. Sorry about the last one!
Next tutorial will probably be a physics one. Probably will be weighting miku's hair or something. xD
BRS bodyCompleted a base reshape for brs. Got it sorta close then converted the sub-d model to poly's and worked it a little more. Connected things up so the head doesn't float. Went ahead and started on some cloths so brs is not neki. I'm gona try to weight her with skin under the cloths so ppl can mod her later because I'm nice like that.BRS body2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Proportions I'm still working on. I'd like to see her coat on to get a better idea. I've gone through dozens of images and looked at the figma's and this is sorta the middle ground. Obviously I need to do detail work on allot but over all a lot got done since she had no body the other day.
So since she has skin under the cloths I had to have fun with it.
Chibi Ani-Chan was furious when I mentioned I saw her neki when I made her too.
So these are silhouettes without like shading. It helps kinda look at proportions and is sorta close to how a mmd model can look.
This is regular lighting.
How to render MMD videos like a pro!How to render MMD videos like a pro!1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
The DeviantArt MMD community is notorious for its drama and mini-conflicts. It has also been the one in which I've encountered some of the rudest people on the Internet. However, I have also been rather fortunate in being able to become acquainted with some of the nicest, talented and knowledgeable people I've ever encountered anywhere. Many of these have graced my gallery with their visits, comments, encouragement and attentions. And a few, perhaps some of the most talented, have graciously given me access to hard to get models, exclusive previews of their MMD work and even insights into their methods of doing things.
Occasionally, I am gifted with real gems and this was the case when garmus1 dropped a note in my inbox the other night. Apart from the depth of knowledge that he gives into his methods, he's also given me permission to share that knowledge with the rest of the community.
Now, I know that some of you will have, after reading only
Tutorial: How to find MMD model links ...Tutorial: How to find MMD model links ...3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
It seems a lot of people really do have trouble finding models that they've seen and like for MMD. I have a lot of people who visit my Deviant Art gallery asking for links and this can get irritating as I am not in the habit of collating links. However, there is a percentage of people who genuinely are new to MMD and really have no idea, and it is for these people that I am writing this brief tutorial.
Almost all models available for MMD exists somewhere on the Internet for download with perhaps the following exceptions:
Those that are sold commercially (Windows 100% models)Those that were taken out of circulation by their creatorsThose that are made privately for personal enjoyment or private collections
In general, you should NEVER ask for a download link for these as in the case of 1 & 2, where download links exists, they are probably ILLEGAL (as in you'll probably be breaking applicable Copyright Laws if you used those links). As for case 3,
UPDATE: My opinion on Kaito x Miku (+ Meiko hate)Well here i GO!UPDATE: My opinion on Kaito x Miku (+ Meiko hate)4 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. On KEI's Vocaloid Doujin (Hatsune Mix) when Miku almost died Kaito was beside her and Miku's last wish was "when the time come's listen to me again" and when Miku (supposed to) died Kaito was so desperate he think's about Miku and when Miku said that her dream is to become a singer and he said while having a very sad expression that Miku was the only family he EVER had and he said that he can't do anything for her. Even though KEI was supposed to keep the relationship of the Vocaloid's equal instead he did this.
2. When Miku was very popular on Nico Nico Douga nobody even knew Kaito was released but when Tatsunami uploaded a parody of the song in Higurashi no naku koro ni, "A Request From Hatsune" The video begins with the words "please sometimes recall [KAITO]," as well as Miku saying "where are you and what are you doing now?" which is from the song Dear You. About four hours later, "An Answer To Hatsune Miku" was posted by Ice-P. In this video, Kaito responds with

MMD A discussion on Illegal EditsMMD A discussion on Illegal Edits3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
There are very few topics that elicit more "passionate" discussions within MMD than the controversy surrounding what are generally referred to as "Illegal Edits". Now, I've publically made the statement that I did not believe that there's such a thing as an "Illegal Edit", but then again that's just an opinion.
I could be totally wrong too.
Which is why, I felt it would be a useful exercise to look at this issue in a rational manner purely for the purposes of discussion. The views presented herein, are solely mine. Although, I will be touching on the subject from a "Legal" perspective, let me state clearly that I am not a lawyer, so what is presented here is my interpretation which may or may not be correct.
In order for this discussion to provide any useful information, I have divided the topic into several areas that I feel are relevant and need to be examined in some detail. These will be:

Transferring Weights in MMDI finally found the plugin to speed up weighting. It transfers weights from your base mesh onto the added parts so you can make clothes fit better.Transferring Weights in MMD1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I'm working on a tutorial but here's the link bowlroll.net/file/375
---Set Up Plugin---
Step 1. Download the plugin from this link - http://bowlroll.net/file/375
Step 2. Unzip the files into your plugin folder...for example on my computer it's "PMDEditor_0139(english)\_plugin\User". It will be the "User" folder inside the "plugin" folder in your version of PMXE.

The 3 new male Vocaloids that were released today in ZOLA PROJECT who were illustrated by noneother Yoshitaka Amano (famous for his Final Fantasy art) were re-drawn by none other than KEI (illustrator of Miku, Rin & Len, and Luka), CARNELIAN (Lapis & Merli's illustrator), ideolo (Tianyi's illustrator), and Umetani Tarou (Yuki & Kiyoteru's illustrator), all whom have done illustrations for Vocaloids before (obviously). You can view and download them in their official website.
There are 3 more coming soon places so we can expect more, probably from previous Vocaloid illustrators as well if the pattern continues. If you want to hear their most recent demos please click the link below.

IMPORTANT: MME Skydrive moved, spread the wordAs you may have realised, the "famous MME skydrive" has disappeared. I mean the one with Diffusion, AutoLuminous, ExcellentShadow and SvSSAO.IMPORTANT: MME Skydrive moved, spread the word1 year ago in Personal More Like This
This is because Microsoft did something very, very dumb: in the process of changing Skydrive to OneDrive, they also changed the URL syntax. This means that while all drives exist, they are now under a new ID. What would a normal person do? They would make a redirection script that redirects the viewer from the old link to the new one. Instead, those dumbasses at Microsoft decided to redirect the viewer to the login page. This just proves that human stupidity is limitless.
But let's get to the point.
The new URL is:

BRS Back of headSo this is my BRS contribution for the day. I really wanted to see how the head looks with the back of the head. It really helps me kinda see whats wrong. So I did reduce the puff in the hair. Its a little more under control. Still WIP though.BRS Back of head2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The back of the hair was done similar to racing miku which is the tda style. It starts with a sphere and I sorta angle it so one of the polar ends are where the twintail will come out. Then morph it a lot into the strawberry shape. Then chop it in half and start cutting edge loops where the rows of hair will channel to the knot where the twin tail comes out. Once I got something I like I mirror it combine it then I have to manually move verts around and cut more edges to make it look like the hair weaves in and out down the center. Thats basically a crash course on making TDA back hair.
Also kinda gave her eyes a little more of a serious look. Took some arche out.
Yes, I know her neck might be too thin but I'm rolling with it till I work on the u

Ripping models from PJD games.Hey everyone.Ripping models from PJD games.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So,I noticed that some people are ripping from Music Girl,Dreamy Theater,etc.But they act like that's a super secret...and they don't even credit the people who made the script.
For example ... Music girl's script you can find on Xentax Forum. ( http://forum.xentax.com/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=9541 ) A lot of scripts you guys can find on that forum,but it's too bad that you don't credit the ones who made the scripts.
I think when you say "I ripped it" doesn't mean that you "ripped it completely" , you know?You just took a random script(you didn't made it) ,used it on 3DSMax/whatever and...that's it.And I've used to do that too
yeah,I don't "rip" models anymore because i'm too lazy to do thatThen guys...stop saying "HURRRRRR IMAH FAKIN AMAZING DOOD I RIPPED DIZ MODEL BUT I WONT TELL U HOW TO RIP IT CUZ IM VERY BADASS ONLY MY V.I.P FRIENDS CAN GET IT".In fact,everyone can rip a model if you use Google.Plus , you're not a genius just because you googled for "Musi

BRS Textures StartedYay pictures! So after waiting forever for AO bakes I got results. So first thing I had to do was decide how to break up the model so different parts of the model didn't effect each other when the AO is calculated. AO is calculated based on proximity and normal angle of neighboring geometry. The calculation lets maya make me a texture based on the UV's I made yesterday. I move things away from each other in places so objects are not to close to each other if I don't want them to effect one another such as the shorts and belts to be effected by the coat so when the coat is removed and stuff the belts and stuff are not strangely dark.BRS Textures Started2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Another example would be her hoods. I'm shooting for them to be swappable or worst case one texture be used for both versions. Because the two hoods are different shapes if I bake AO with one hood on there will be noticeable black outlines in the texture when I swap the hoods.
Also because I think layering your AO is pointless in photoshop I bake it in one
