Crowding up the Set
I haven’t really decided yet if I’ll be keeping the sin sacks doing the Muscle-y motion in the background. Though having them around kinda gives the image of them projecting the image of what kind of huge guys with huge dicks are going to be ramming themselves into Suwako so it kinda works, just like in the same way that in the Iron Loli Contest, the horses were there in a background foreshadowing the climax of the party.
Yup, had to remove Snake, for two reasons: 1.) he blended into the background too much 2.) he looked out of place once I started adding characters that looked more appropriate for the festival
I think that Masamune would make a better DJ but he’ll blend in the background just like Snake did. I’ll think of a way to install him there, he’s like my favorite in the Basara series, along with the Norio Wakamoto-voiced Nobunaga.
That’s about 500 guys in the background, I think I should add more people in traditional clothes. I did some research and heard there was some festival where people brought their miniature shrines to take in more blessings and stuff, so I’ll probably rehash the crowd with a more appropriate one.
Yup, still foreveralone in the VIP area, still haven’t decided who’ll be there yet. Kanako of course yes, but I think there should also be some dignitaries and stuff there, you know, a Tyrant’s entourage of geezers in shadow.
Video Review: They ELECTed Xion’s
Now let’s look at this video first, Beyonce’s Put a Ring on it.
I like this video, it’s well done, the choreography and composition is great. I’m sure you can agree as well.
But wait, why am I praising this video even though I call some MMD videos as too plain when their dancing boxes have more decor?
Simple, that video was performed by people. Real people, people who aren’t perfect and can make mistakes. And it was all done in a single take
Understand this. 3d models, aren’t real people. There’s nothing charming in them performing the exact same motion because they’ll do it perfectly. They do not have this charm called “Talent”. Our 3d models do not have this human warmth, they’re robots who execute commands to the letter; they don’t forget, they don’t misstep.
What I see in MMD, is robots dancing. Why else do I go through so much effort in trying to make them human with facial expressions and realistic situations? How can you love something when you can’t relate to it?
Less is never More. Detail is key. Take the effort to make it look like the model is a human being. Even amateur looking motions are warmer because it’s like it was at least programmed by a person.
So yes, dance-in-a-box, no cuts, long takes performed by people? That is talent to do everything right in one go. But for MMD models? That is just being lazy.
Not that this video of Xion is guilty of anything like that. This is Xion we are talking about after all.
And that’s it for today’s post. Sorry for the outage I had yesterday, I had my new modem bolted down so Kitty won’t RKO the thing.
Incidentally, he’s not really a pet, he’s semi wild/stray. Or could have been abandoned, I mean, he lets me pet him and he comes out when he sees me.
