MMD A discussion on Illegal EditsMMD A discussion on Illegal Edits2 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:

MMD Towards an understanding of the Japanese MMDCMMD Towards an understanding of the Japanese MMDC1 year 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
MMD and Cyber-BullyingMMD and Cyber-Bullying2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
So one morning I was going through my DA messages and there was one from deviant RaikuHoshigami with a rather interesting proposition. Basically, he suggested that I write an article on "Cyber-Bullying" as it pertains to MMD.
He raised some really interesting points with respect to this subject and in a nutshell these were all points that affect many of us here on DA who are MMDers, either directly or indirectly. Especially since outside of Japan, many MMDers are exactly in the demographic groups most likely to be affected by "Cyber-Bullying"; namely those who are in their pre-teen and teens. There are also instances to my direct knowledge where some who are in their early 20s have been negatively impacted in their experiences with MMD by others on DA. So, this is a subject worth visiting in a little more depth.
So what we will do here are the following:

Japanese Attitudes Toward MMD ModelsJapanese people have the special affection for human-shaped objects.Japanese Attitudes Toward MMD Models3 years ago in Personal More Like This
With the influence of Shinto culture, they often regard human-shaped objects as resting or residing room for souls, spirits or gods/deities. Though this custom is becoming obsolete, some Japanese take old dolls to shrines or temples to pray for the repose of souls. Priests or monks recite a sutra and the dolls are cremated. These might be the reason why some people in Japan often talk as if Vocaloid characters were real human beings.
It seems some MMD model creators take their works as the very expression of their souls with this cultural and religious belief. This strong affection for human-shaped objects may lead to the reason why they strongly reject editing or redistributing their models. They don't mean to be selfish at all; we should respect their feelings.

SeeU TutorialWell I know its a little late but most people on Votaku and Youtube know by now that I got Seeu for Christmas. Since I never really put anything special for seeu here ... Well I'll make this little post. This will be a little mini tutorial with tips.SeeU Tutorial3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Seeu is by far my favorite vocaloid. You can kinda compare her to Sonika. No Seeu is not really muffled and very bad quality. The reason I compare the two is because they are both very versatile and great for people who experimenting and working with configurations. Seeu's Korean voicebank gives users a chance to mess around with phonemes that are not in a Japanese voicebank. The Korean bank only works with hangul input so you will be forced to work with her on a phonetic level ... But thats not bad because we want to work directly with her phonemes. Her Japanese voicebank is slightly higher in voice and has an over all more moe effect to her then

MMD In defense of rip artists ...MMD In defense of rip artists ...2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
DeviantArts (DA) is probably unique in several ways, but the thing that I've found strangest and have had the most difficulty with grappling with is their tolerance(?) of "rips". Which is why I think this could be an interesting discussion.
"Rips" are models taken from commercial computer and video games and used for "something else". Make no mistakes about it, probably 99.99% of rips are illegal in the sense that they were "stolen" from something else. Which, given the existence of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), makes it kind of strange that DA tolerates any rips on their servers at all. May be they really do deserve the kind of reputation that they receive on other forums on the Internet, or they just aren't making enough money to be worth the bother to sue. Who knows? The fact remains is that at the moment DA seems to be a safe haven for rippers and nowhere are they perhaps more visible than in the MMD field.

I just got "SimPE" the sims2 package editor.
Then I opened the ".package" file downloaded from a sims2 site.
------Getting the 3D body---------
To extract the 3d body you need to use a sim2 package with a mesh file in it.
Click on the list of files that says GMDC, and on the lower left check all the parts in that box that says "Generic Rcol Editor"
Click on preview to see a small image of what it looks like.
Then click "Export" and use DirectX Exporter. Then import the x file into PMDeditor. I think you need to scale it "x10" to see it, not sure though. But yeah. Then you just need to assign the materials.
Open the package containing the textures you want.
Scroll down on the left and select "Texture Image"

BRS Coat pt1Typing without my index finger because its on fire from clicking my left mouse button today. I did the top half of the coat today pretty much. The bottom half should come tomorrow-ish. Currently there is skin under her sleeves which is not normal for me. Usually i cut the skin off around the chest but since we are trying new things here it made making the coat just a little harder.BRS Coat pt11 year ago in Personal More Like This
I also decided to mess with her hips. They seemed kinda to bowed out to me while they should be a little more strait. I think it looks more brs like now.
All the graphics and lines currently are shaders in maya. Its pretty much place holder stuff so I can see the model with basic textures that could effect the shape of things. Just so there's not surprises later.

Flame texturedIf that's what I can call it. I sat down and spent all of maybe a hour I think just doing brush strokes randomly. I may change it later but for now I got some texture on it. Flames are generally a effect so modeling it is sorta the backwards way of doing it. I may later mess with the alpha to make it a little more flame like I think. This can all be done even after the models in pmx so I'm not super stressed about it.Flame textured1 year ago in Personal More Like This
