Hello my berries (yes i'm not saying fuzzies anymore i've grown out of and graduated from that level of cringe and into a more tolerable one...then again idk if berries is better...eh whatever h8ers gonna h8 just let'em bitch).
So I've been throwing around the idea in my head (as well as in discussions with a few MMDer friends) of making from scratch
custom models and/or model parts as commissions. I know for sure I'm not gonna get normal art commissions ever again any time soon because I like never draw anymore. :') Nowadays I'm either too busy with MMD or working a full time job eeeeyyy *finger guns*
hence why I was thinking of practicing more with Blender (and also hence my inactivity on this website). I thought I'd post about it because I was curious if anybody would ever be interested in such a thing. If I build the models myself in blender then I don't have to worry about those "no commercial use" rules on other people's bases and parts. Besides, with model edits, there's so much limitations to how accurate you can get a model to be as well as make it look good (can't find good enough parts or when you do find a good enough part, it's part of a model that prohibits taking parts, the part isn't for DL anymore, or you simply can't. f*cking. find it. ANYWHERE
). And since I know the age group that takes up most of the MMDC, I won't price them too high in the beginning. Although, just a fair warning, it'll probably only be parts that'll be in the $10-20 or less range.
My only issue with the idea, though, is distribution and the kinds of characters I could make. I would love to do my own versions of official/famous Vocaloid characters and distribute them, but because the MMDC has such an enormous problem with the incredibly simple action of having the common sense to credit people properly
as well as respecting people's rules, that'd be impossible. :/ People would be ripping the parts and textures left and right, redistributing nude bases, making recolors or changing the outfits and claiming them as their own, using them in videos and not bothering to include my name in the description, and then there's that f*cker out there who I heard posted a tutorial on how to unlock models locked with PMX Locker. I could still do model commissions of OCs and self models, but there'd be a lot of rules. The gist of it would be I won't fandom OCs (with the exception of fanloids/UTAU OCs), you can't share them publicly (same reason as explained above why I wouldn't custom build and publicly share a famous vocaloid model), and you gotta be good at crediting people for the models you make, parts and all. And yes, of course, you're allowed to edit it if there's any tweaking to the parts or textures you'd like to make. ^u^ Just don't rip the parts/make a nude base and give them out please. (⊙‿⊙) The model and parts you commission me will be made specially for you
to use (and maybe your friends as long as they aren't part/model thieves) so please don't separate the pieces and put them on DA let alone on other models either ok. (✿◠‿◠)
Alright, text walls over. Lemme know in the comments if anyone would be interested in this idea. c: I think it'd be fun~ (course I still have a loooot of practice to do lolol so I'll probably use famous vocaloid characters as my guinea pigs before I open model commissions).
🍓Stay dank my dudes👌
