Thank you SO much! I hope I can make my characters as pretty as yours ;3; You have talent I'm guessing you use High Poly, huh? LOL. How long did it take you to get as good as you are? I can't even imagine the time it takes D':
I thought so D: I'll just stick with learning Low-Poly for now. I don't want to explode my brain just yet x'D Only a year!? You've got to be kidding, that's not even that long for the type of models you're making. I just got it a couple of days ago and I've already got a full-body mesh. Well, subtract the hands, feet, and head. But I'm not even using bone manipulation yet. Do you use bone manipulation?? Can they move without it? LOL (sorry for bombarding you with questions. I'm just excited x'D!!)
Yes I use bones, they are generally the best way to get body movement going. Shape Keys is also another popular method of animating specific things, that would take too much time to rig to bones. But those are time intensive still (as its like modeling the start and finish product, then Blender tweens in between the frames, or its on/off, what ever.. very flexible).
Shape Keys is usually used for Facial expressions though, not bodily movement, doubt its very good for that.
omg... yea MikuMikuDance would shit itself with something that high res. O_O But seriously though. :3 you should make some lower poly ones for MMD, since its obvious you have the skill, the community would welcome you and love you forever X3
:3 Yay I at least coaxed an "I'll think about it" and thats a step away from "That sounds fun" which is a step away from, I just might do it." Whch is of course a step away from. "I am going to do this!" At least thats how my brain sees the progressive prossess of thingking about it. lol. But yea, since most of us morons in the english speaking communiy cant model worth crap (myself included) It would be nice to see someone in whos english speaking, join the community with some models that are awesome, and I think that something like this would actually bring BACK some of the japanese members who leaft because of a handfull of jerks in the english community. D: and I am extreamely long winded... sorry. :3
Well there is someone by the name of 'mellmellbuttercup' redistributing models that have creators that clearly have stated they they wish not to be destributed, and thats really the only clear jerk, but the biggest problem is language gap, and some people didnt realize how strongly the model creators felt untill a specific one Nanami pulled his stuff from the community, so no one can download anymore. So a lot of pople have left the community except for I guess you could say the purists who just enjoy working with the program. And it is somewhat of a crime to redistribute a model since you can pretty well just go to a creators site and download the things anyway, so why bother uploading it yourself for others when you can just refer them to where yo got it in the first place.
So the main community is really good I guess, Everyone just wants to help eachother out, some trades go on between people who have either hard to find or "rare" models, and that while still somewhat of redistributing is not seen too bad since their not uploading it and sending the link out to everyone and their brother. And since the major modelers have stopped their downloads its about the only way to get some of the models out there. :3 So yea right now the goal of the english community is to just have fun with what we have now, flame and bash anyone who publicly starts redistributing any models... and try to get those wo have left to come back.
D'oh that sucks >< But pretty much what I was expecting..
I can say from experience (at least in Oblivion/Fallout 3 Modding), that modelers are both under appreciated and "overworked". So it's no surprise to me that all the major players stepped out when no one respected their wishes.
i really like the detail in this one everythng looks so shiny and really catches my eye vir 3 is trully a masterpiece its a shame they dont have a vir 3 1/8 figure i wnt one hahaha your skin tone color is just amazing i like how it makes her look <3 trlly beautiful fur sure ^.^ by the way u like my new avatar? hehe
