I've always been fascinated by MMD (MikuMikuDance). I first took notice of this back in late 2009. The creators of the program had a vision. That vision has been fulfilled many times over. I've seen artists create epic animations over the years and I've yet to learn how to make some of my own. I know I can do it, but it will take a lot of time and patience to do.
So, I've started out doing camera motions and studying different effects. I've gotten the principles of lip syncing and animating by frames. There's one more thing to do though. I have to get my hands on an Xbox 360 Kinect Camera. This will enable me to capture motions in real time
Whew. Been a while since I've updated my journal, let alone upload some artwork. Thought it would be a good time as ever to update this since I've uploaded something. I've decided to study vectoring. Of all the fandoms that I've been through, Anime, Video games and other stuff, it had to be Ponies that pushed me to finally do something art-related rather than squawk about it endlessly. I'm sure by now some of my old friends on DA are like. "WTH Ponies?" I wasn't very clear with some of my posts on Facebook or Plurk, so I'm making it clear here that I've joined the "herd". And that I'm a brony, a grown up man who likes My Little Pony: Friendsh
Yesterday was a very interesting day. It started out like any other normal day that usually just passes by but yesterday it rained for a long time for the first time in a few months. I love the rain as it somehow always puts my mind at ease. The rain also made me think about a lot of things. How cherished and blessed this life of mine has been so far, and yet I haven't made a dent in the grand scheme of things, yet. Yesterday was also a day when I had a peculiar dream. In this dream, I've seen friends I haven't seen in a while. We were in a "modified" version of my home town and oddly enough we were celebrating some sort of Japanese festival.
