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:

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
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:

I visited this account once again to post something Ash requested me to do before she went away. This was a text file from her tablet entitled "The End". She told me to not read the content and just post it as a journal, 3 days after I update her account. But I can't help but read it as well. Her instructions were very specific and it left me wondering.
None of the content was altered in any way.

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.

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
What is on my mind is my trip. I can say at this point I'll be going to Japan for a bit starting Monday. Will be there for a while and will have to see how my work schedule will adapt to the situation. Of course will take photos and maybe video of random things and upload and talk about it. xD
That's all for now! Next is BRS needs to be prepped for 3d max to get her to pmx unless I've forgotten something. Haha so hard to remember when other things are on mind!

Rigging hes been manageable on my laptop but sure wish I had a better pc. Its very laggy. Her shoulders and her hip and leg area needs work and her elbows and hands need rigged. Her "crotch" lol is not very easy since she has optional bikini or shorts there. Anyways will get to it soon. Otherwise all is good. Its getting cold here in Tokyo so I've been inside almost all day haha.
Here's some of the sliders for the cloths and her rigging so far.

He's criticizing metal listeners (Metallica and Megadeth). He calls the Beatles the crap band.He hates anime and freak things. Annoying, ANNOYING hair flipping (God...). Talent? Where? . Crap videos. He doesn't shut up even under the wather. He compared himself to Kurt Cobain. ...and don't forget when he insulted Anne Frank saying that she would be a Believer...

I love to do motions and videos; but I come to here one year ago for try to make edited models... then I was amused and I had so much fun during a year... but I forgot my YouTube channel :/

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 pt12 years 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.

While I was gone, I realized my mediafire account was being false-ly flagged as stolen (stuff I made *sigh*) anyway... I got a hold of the people and they noticed the strange flagging record but had already deleted ALL my files... My old computer crashed some time ago deleting everything on that soo.... I have no files to re-upload so I'm coming to you.
If you have ANY of the downloads and can send me a .zip file with them in, that would be great! Could really use the help (cant stand the spam of failed link problems). Gonna try and get more connected with MMD again soon hopefully by spring time. Thanks again everyone!

Ripping models from PJD games.Hey everyone.Ripping models from PJD games.2 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
