Q: What software do you use?
A: Maya 2014 for modeling, Mudbox, Blender, Photoshop CS4 and PaintTool SAI for texturing.
Q: What editor do you use and where can I get it?
A: pmx only but can export pmd files too. Here is my version, it is the Japanese version: www.mediafire.com/download/zjs…
Q: How long does a character take?
A: A long long time. Tons of work is put into each of them since they are made from nothing.
Q: Do you take commissions?
A: No, unless you are a group, institution, or company willing to pay for a month of work.
Q: Do you plan to let us download a new model?
A: I make every effort to ensure I can make a model downloadable. Company mascots that I have agree'ed to make is up to the company when its released if ever. Any unanimous vote character will always be downloadable.
Q: How can you get a mmd model into Maya.
A: Using 3dmax and Blender import and export tools.
Q: I'm interested in a custom Model, how much does it cost?
A: It takes about a month of work so even if you are paying $10 a hour which is under 1/3 3d industry wage w/ overhead it would be around $1600. My recommendation is unless you are making money or other benefits off the model look for a editor not a true modeler / animator.
