549th Time in the Pixiv Rankings!
…Drum roll please!
And here’s today’s Pixiv Daily Treat!
Supporting the Massive Boosters
So that’s Minagi’s last design yesterday before I decided to add a few more to her costume. So now it looks more like this.
My aim was to make the costume look like it’s deliberately made to show off her body as opposed to just looking like she decided to skip them. So by angling the way the bottom of her corset thingy opens up seems to do the trick for me, plus the wayit helps accentuate the shape of her rear which I think I’m ruining with those skirt thingies that I’ll probably drop after this blog post.
So here’s the tricky thing when it comes to giving characters a bra especially for ones that aren’t rigged exactly for them, I wanted to give Minagi a “pointless” bra that’s more for show and looks like it’s supporting her breasts as opposed to hiding them and the first one on my list of possibles was the bandolier-esque style of bra that Galrider and Denise used (which by now I think I have to use them in this project, hopefully) however the problem was that that bra didn’t fully cup the breasts from underneath which means I had to find other ways.
So my course of action was to simply create a new copy of minagi and cut everything out leaving out ony the torso area and breasts and from there apply a different texture to them and then move the texture around. Then once I got it looking right, I then had to merge all the facial data that way they would match the shape of her breasts when I changed their sizes or toggled their physics. What you’re currently looking at right now is her breast size at maxed size (but it is possible to make them bigger by entering a numeric value.)
You may have also noticed the return of that computer screen thingy. Keeping it at her chest area didn’t sit well with me as it interfered with her neck and head motions so I placed them under breasts. Which in hindsight is a great idea because now whenever I need to make a scene of someone looking at her screen, they will actually have to bend forward and a get a great view of her boobs. And I think that’s actually a nice touch to make things even more ecchi than they actually are.
And that’s it for today, time to finish up the rest of her costume. I’m going to see if I can get some rotating thingies on her ankles. It should sound easy for some reason, maybe because of how the legs are in an IK chain, they just don’t connect like they normally should.
Speaking of which, yesteday, I did have an issue with her hands since I replaced them with those glove thingies and they like were delayed when following her arms. Thanks to Takuya I was able to resolve the issue and learn a new thing in MMD regarding bones.
basically I matched the value of the fingers to the rest of the arms which in my case, I set it to 1 and then the lagginess was gone.
And that’s it for today, I have to get back to finishing up the design using this knowledge to see if I can finally attach non-static stuff to the legs.
