Why dA sucks for MMD modelersThis may seem a little ranty but I feel these are real points based on my observations.Why dA sucks for MMD modelers2 months ago in Personal More Like This
I notice every time I come to this site my cover page where art is featured is covered with a range of illustrations, character sheets, and other pretty mediocre 2d stuff. Pretty much none of it is 3d and that bugs me. Something about the effort and time it takes to make something in 3d and you see a sketch/doodle getting spot lighted that rubs me the wrong way.
On the occasion I do see something 3d, you know, that western world of warcraft clone crap.
This site has an entire community nested in it that does asian/anime art style yet I see none of it getting attention from the dA staff.
Maybe the dA 3d anime community is full of editors and people too young to have the skill level they require. Or the fact they don't consider editors artist because not enough of their content is original. I have no idea what their deal is but I'm not a editor and this brings me to my next point.
As an actual M
Senmei Stage + NanoToday just a small update on the Senmei stage. Its actually a little further then this screen shot but I'm posting last update from FaceBook. What was finished here was the peir behind the taller building called Canada Place. Its not 100% accurate but again I don't have the source info or the time to scrutinize every detail. The next update will be some of the buildings across the street. I'm hoping after that I can start considering lowering the detail of the buildings as they extend further out from the worlds center point.Senmei Stage + Nano6 months ago in Personal More Like This
In terms of modeling its much of the same technique as in the last journal. Its just more of it! xD
The other update is Nanoko's casual wear. This is the first concept version of what I'd consider more clothed. I would say its school girl inspired but not hardcore school girl.
Some things that are on the table for this version is a hood on the back, plaid skirt, backpack or messenger bag. I might do another concept entirely but its based on time and if I thi

This one will be a little more difficult, but we also have better prizes and a longer time.

The images must be NEW, as in, published on or after October 1, 2013.
Entries, for the most part, must be made in MMD. You can use any models, effects, backgrounds, that you please.
You MAY edit and MMD render using photo-manipulation software such as GIMP, Photoshop, Pivix, MS Paint, or other program of your choice. The important part is the base image comes from MMD.
No judges this time, just me and my opinions~ If I need a second opinion I'll ask.
I left the theme vague for a reason. That is the challenge
BRS Hair rough completeSo when I say the rough is done I mean. I still have to cap the back of the hair and connect her bangs up to her head. Its only a few hours of work and usually I save it for the end anyways because its real hard to work with after I do that step.BRS Hair rough complete2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm pretty happy with the hair. Its actually pretty low poly and the reason for that is because of the weapons that I want to be part of her main file. These screens unfortunately don't do her justice, she is impressive in 3d. Coming from the author of this model and how artist usually hate their own work I'm pretty satisfied with the hair. Will be interesting to see it textured.
Also in case you get bored and don't make it to the bottom I'll say this here. I'm considering the idea of opening commission for accessories only. As in "parts". Compensation would be effected by difficulty/time.
Also I remember talking about ibrs sorta getting a update. I wanted to try out a mockup to sorta see how it would look. I think it will work and the nice th
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.

BRS Coat Pt2Coat bottom completed which means the rough progress on the model is complete. Now comes details and fixes and prep for UV's.BRS Coat Pt22 years ago in Personal More Like This
I gave her a bikini bottom/undies because I left the body to her under her shorts. I didn't spend long on it but if the skin doesn't pop through the pants to much when weighting I'll make it a option or something lol.
I made the typology the same about on the pants as the skin so there's a chance it will work. Or I can remove the skin and combine it with the undies and make it swappable. via slider.
I shot the video with the old coat for some reason and it didn't have thickness. In the screen caps it has thickness.
Below is sort of how i made it. Like CAD software I made spines or curves and the computer knows how to create a mesh across the network of curves for complex objects. Its just one of many ways to make stuff.
Next are renders of the coat completed.
And lastly a video of her in 3d showing all the versions of stuff excluding the machine gun.

Racing Miku TwinTailsSince the new images making their way to the internet of the new figma and a few new illustrations I was able to update the twintails.

I might have to pitch down her rear skirt some from seeing some figma shots. It's just part of the struggle in making mmd models off of new illustrations since they are always posed like there's no gravity. But we'll see..
Nanoko Casual Wear ChangesEfforts continue to make nanoko's casual clothing. It seems most interest is in the 1st version so I'm going back and trying to make improvements. The main issue is I'd like to reuse the head from the first Nano model to cut down on time to make the next one. I mean why not?! The trick is the old model has a seam on the neck that goes with the original sci-fi suit. So if I want to use the old face I need to hide the seam. I was going to do with with high collar like the sci-fi suit but it wasn't so easy.Nanoko Casual Wear Changes5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Here's why I can't change the seam location much. If I do anything that requires re-importing the face into pmx-e I will loose ALL my face morph work which is a the entire reason I want to re-use what I got.
So please don't suggest remodeling how the neck meets the body. ><
I sort of felt having a hood would give her more of a casual look and help give her less of a ridged style. It also lets me do things like put cute bunny ears on it because why not?! The problem is to balance

News and Sen WorldSen world first, I'll spare everyone another wall of text! But Senmei's stage is coming along ok. Its a lot of work as I've already said a few times. I'm texturing it part by part. Its a mountain to climb but I'll make it to the top even if I crawl. Lately its been dealing with designs on the ground. There's a ton of brick work so I've had to make a few brick textures and pattern them like the actual area its modeled after.News and Sen World4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Soon I'll start on the Canada place building then start working on things across the street. All I can say is sooooo many textures. This stage will have a subset list a mile long.
Secondly and this is not as high of priority as the getting the stage complete is a character. I said I'd work on Nanoko's casual version. Its still planned however the 2015 Racing miku designed poped up not long ago and its sort of interesting and I wouldn't want it to take untill half way into 2015 to complete. I haven't done a Miku in about 2 years so now might be a time to do it.
Nanoko ProgressThings have started on my own character Nanoko! I chose the name Nanoko for a few reasons. Primarily because of nano it self in "English" suggests small or high-tech circuitry or bio-mechanics. The other reason I'll explain later, but it has to do with replacing the texelworks name. ^^ But just as a update for those that sadly don't Twitter or Facebook here's whats going on. ^^ I decided some time ago it was better to choose something hightech to represent what I do rather then traditional clothing. So I made Hyperdimention Neptune / appended Miku / Kancolle style clothing.Nanoko Progress1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I first started with logo concepts since this is more then just a random character its also the mascot or a representation of what I do. So I made a sheet of possible logos to choose from.
Next I made a concept some of you may remember. It was really its just a direction I wanted to go but nothing really thought out. But I needed something since it was such a drastic change from the

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

So the next model I can share is Nano, but I'm still waiting on legal paperwork to be completed since she is my own IP, and design. So while I'm waiting for that, I've been making improvements to the already near perfect working model. For example: I dug into the skirt physics again since some jerky animations are hell on physics. ShakeIT for example is a really jerky animation and the skirt had a 10-20% chance to break temporary when I had nano do the break dancing parts. I think I improved it a lot hence the image below. Excuse my Nano ass troll image below. I think I've reduced the chance to 5% maybe less. I did tone the skirt down so its not flipping up quite as much as well.
I win skirt! U loose!
Other additions is kitty mouth open and lower mouth position and teeth removal sliders to h

Well first of all assuming that you haven't read my interpolation tutorials, I'll say once again that terminologies marked with asterisks (ex.

Take a look: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qEm697P5OIA
It now includes Arcade style Project Diva F songs and modules which look AMAZING
The models are now higher poly and some design have changed such as:
- Mikus new hair has more strands on the twintails
- Meikos New skirt which is not pleated anymore but flat like her original design
The PVs look so much brighter and nicer
The animation have gotten better but most importantly NO MORE STIFF FINGERS they actually move normally now like they do in Project DIVA F o.o
Overall it is what Project Diva F should have been xD I hope one day we will get Arade units in the west but it depended on the localization testing they do so who knows.
Tell me what you think of the new Project Diva Arcade Future Tone
