  • Drawing emotes is much harder than I thought. I'm not used to making things small and chibi :sad:
    Also, can someone tell me how people make their lineart so crisp and sharp?! Mine's always looks like pixelated garbage lol
    I don't understand why there are so many people in my life that doesn't want me to be happy, or at least want me to do better. Its so ass backwards.
    They'll just flip out and act like I caused a genocide, and say that I'm being abusive or something when I say to myself "if only I moved out and actually do something with my life and be like any other person in society...". Imagine having parents like that... My mom just roll her eyes and scoff like I'm too stupid to even do such things and just tells me I'm just so annoying. It immediately brings my self esteem lower that it already is. After so many years of my life of mental disorders taking over my life and chronic stress and being looked down like I have literally no brain, I just feel tired.

    I’m really, really sorry. I’ve been in similar situations, and damn if it isn’t one of the hardest things to deal with. I know it doesn’t make it easier, but I do want you to know you’re not worthless, you’re not stupid, and you’re not alone. And know that, under no circumstance, will this last. If there’s any method through which you can get away from your parents, at least for longer periods of time if you’re not able to move out, chase that. If not, and even if so, we’re all here for you, and my inbox is always open.

    Life and its struggles fluctuate like the waxing and waning of the moon. This too shall pass. It might pass like a kidney stone, but you’re strong, and you will prevail.

    Thank you. I don't really like venting something personal like this, but I feel like its been bottling up for the past year at least. Sometimes I believe what they say to me or about me is true, and sometimes believe I deserve the things that happen to me that I didn't recover from.
    I do hope it passes like a kidney stone, and i do hope I can prove them wrong.
    I wish there's a sequel to IA/VT being made, but I know that will never happen :(

    I always wanted to play the IA game, but I never owned a PS Vita. I do have Megpoid the Music on PSP though, and that was okay. Compared to Project Diva, it's not amazing, but it was fun for short bursts of playtime.

    I never played Megpoid the Music, but always wanted to own it. I remember watching gameplay of it during the time of its release. My only big complaint is its visuals, they look straight from an MMD video. Gameplay seems fine to me though.
    They could've went with a developer with more experience than a company that no one's ever heard of and never heard from again.
    Also, about IA/VT, I imagine a sequel having ONE and HIPPI, older songs they could've added, newer songs they could add, and maybe PVs made for the songs too, like Project Diva would.

    I have both ia vt and megpoid the music and project 575 and I feel like they all deserve sequels. Megpoid the music does feel very first video gamey but the 3d models are very nice for the PSP but the beat maps seem off at times. There was so much work put into 575 it's sad it never caught on they even make camios in Sega's other rythme games.
    I remembered that I was making a cover using Maki's english. Hopefully I don't get too tired of it and forget about it for another 5 days lol

    I wasn't online for days because my internet died lol
    Comcast is the worst
    I don't know how can people create covers without wanting to tear their own hair from their scalp. Trying to make a certain voicebank breathe when they don't have breaths, to wanting to make it sound less choppy or robotic, my brain is too small to even work on it for long periods and just get distracted by something else... Respect to people who can actually create anything with any Vocalsynth software.

    I was originally was just going to type "sussy baka", but I wanted to vent this out

    I don't like to say like this but try to turn left-right but not circle around.
    I see you trying to make vb breath. I don't know what vb you use, But the vb these days come with breath sample you can check on that.
    If it not work, maybe use breath sample from real human singer (i use the most), if it not work again? Then, just forget it. Simple as that.

    Don't focus on specific thing too much, it's use a lot of energy (also hair from scalp)
    I mostly learn from other people work, you may try that one. Download project files from someone else and look what how it actually made, maybe it's very simple than you thought, who know?

    The breath issue at least has a few fixes: V5 has an automated breath feature you can use on all vocals, breath samples or no, and you can pinpoint the type, intensity, and frequency you want them at. For vocals that don’t have breaths, or synths that don’t typically include that kind of data, I keep WAV files on hand of any Vocaloid that has breath data, match the vocal I’m using to one of a similar type, and insert their breaths manually in my DAW where and when I need them. Bit of a tedious process, but simple to get the hang of!

    Everything else can’t really be hacked, sadly. It’s an art form that takes lots and lots of practice and years of continual improvement! You can do it; we all have faith in you!

    Wow... I don't really have any sage advice to offer since everyone has really summed up what I would say quite nicely!! So, I second what IO+ and Peaches have said!
    It all comes with practice! My old vocal synth covers were ok at best, but with practice I've improved a lot! Moral of the story is to keep trying and practicing, but also don't push yourself too hard! If you find you're getting burned out or frustrated, take a break! It's not fun when it feels like a chore.
    You can do it!!!:sukonetei_smile_lili:
    Does anyone remember this old rhythm game called Zyon? I really miss that game. It was so dang good! I remember playing this a lot in high school.
    This is what it looks like:
    I'm a little disappointed that there's no linux alternative to UTAU besides one called Utsu, which is kinda buggy for me at the moment(yes, I use Linux, and no, I don't want to go back to windows anymore)
    Kazumimi
    Kazumimi
    Have you tried running UTAU via wine or wineskin? It always worked fairly well for me when I operated solely on MacOS (which is also Unix based), albeit with a few minor bugs. (Sometimes it would refuse to render notes for some inexplicable reason--but then you reopen the UST and suddenly it's fine? It's weird. Also some kanji don't display correctly.)
    I've always wanted to switch to Linux because I like the idea of an open-source OS, but I don't like losing that accessibility since not everything can be run via wine/has a linux version (also I use Logic Pro as my DAW and there's no way to run to MacOS applications on Linux as of yet; I've yet to find any other DAW that I like XP).
    I had a point to this but ultimately lost it half-way through, ehehe. :kyo_ani_lili:

    I did tried using WINE but it either never opens or I can't seem to navigate through the installation wizard properly(because everything is in Japanese, they're only random symbols everywhere).
    I did download and run Deepvocal with WINE and it worked, but I didn't test any voicebanks yet. It displays fine once you change the language to english.

    (also, I really do like the Idea of open-source too)

    I always forget to appreciate the little things in life, always feeling upset about the things I don't have or experienced.
    I have to keep reminding myself that I should be happy about the smallest things, even if its insignificant to many people.
    Like, I don't have to travel the galaxy or something big and impossible to feel self worth. But I always feel like my brain tells me "do something, or you're not worth anything".

    Same problem here 😪 No matter what I do, there's always this nasty dark thought being like "you're old, you're useless, you watsed space for someone who would have been betetr than you, you stole a great baby's and adult's place" (add also heavy fatphobic twist to it and it's the full combo') and it paralyses me

    Plus add the fact that society and even people themselves push us into being the ultimate genius or model to be worthy of love and respect, and it's even more of a disaster on self-esteem... Through lastest years, I've noticed whenever a "little genius" (think 4-year-old violonists or other kind of people who make crazy things) is mediatized, there's always this underlying comment that if you as a teen or an adult you didn't do something great for Humanity or than people acclaim you, then you failed terribly... Sure it happened before but.... It's getting even harsher and it's even more of a paradox because at the same time there are more and mroe books or people praising to enjoy any small thing but at the same time, and worse if some of them are the same doing it, they push you into being famous, having done something cool, being rich or something to be interesting....

    I think society pushing this mindset on people is very toxic. Like making people feel like they are now too old at a certain age to do a certain thing. I always get extreme paranoia that people will see me as a loser for not creating a novel at, like, 15 or something.
    I remember when I was little, I really pressured myself to actually create a novel of some kind based on my OCs, not only because I wanted to, but to reach this crazy milestone, but now that I didn't, I feel like I already failed, because seeing people younger can play the frickin piano(like 4 or something?!), makes me feel like "if some toddler can do this, than why can't I?". It enables jealousy and self hatred, and I hate that.

    I don't like that society is pretty much saying "If you're not traveling every galaxy in 3 days, paint something like the Mona Lisa at 2 years old, or have the cure for a fatal disease, you already failed as a human being"... And I think that needs to change.

    (Also, success takes time, and I didn't really know this when I was younger... So even if I did rush out something I written, it will probably be bad regardless)
    I'm sad that I can't support the Solaris campaign. I'm too frickin' poor... :sad:

    I've learned through past campaigns that the people who support a project vocally are just as important as the people who support them monetarily. By spreading love for the project, that project is able to expand its reach, and the more people it reaches, the more people are able to support it in their own ways. Never feel bad for not having the money to support something; if money alone was the only thing it took to make these projects happen, we wouldn't have much of anything! :akasakiminato_lili:
    Here's something random I written, Its 5AM here and I'm creating dumb stuff like this:

    “How come Rin can eat three cookies and I get none?!” Miku whines at an exhausted Meiko.

    “Because you are a little shit who can never keep their fat ass lips shut!” Meiko said aggressively.

    Miku knew that was coming, but she can’t help but still be at shock and try to fake sob, even though we all know that shit never works, so this 21 year old woman-child is wasting her "precious" ass time doing it anyway…

    “When will you stop this and get a fucking part-time job…?” Meiko asked, being fed up with this shit.

    That answer never came... And probably never will...

    I'm not sure if people are fine with the constant cursing...
    I feel like I just soft lock myself in Genshin...

    Trying to look through stuff I written and I kinda forgot that I wrote this months ago, and it was already posted on my AO3 account:

    “Hell yeah! I am alpha!” Len shouted at his laptop that is on his studying desk as he eats his Doritos with a knife and fork and sips his mountain dew from his tea cup.

    Meiko walked in and saw Len being lazy, to her surprise. He’s usually a hard worker, always studying and excelling in his grades and going to his classes on time.

    “Boy, get your ass back to studying!” Meiko shouted.

    “Meiko, why are you in my dorm?!” Len asked with frustration and he took a sip from his tea cup once more.

    “I came to visit you,” Meiko answered, “Just wondering how you are doing!”

    “I’m an alpha! So, of course I’m OK!” Len shouted.

    “Eh?”

    “Did I stutter?!”

    Meiko filled with anger from him talking back, but confusion for what the fuck he even said, She only walked out of his dorm, wanting to take a nap...

    I realized I write this way a lot. Mostly comedic.

    I lied. I didn't forget. I just want people to read this lol
    I forgot to draw Rin as Spongebob :(
    I remember drawing Miku as Squidward and Luka as Patrick. I need to complete the set!
    I find it cool that this is my first Miku Expo. I always wanted to go to one for the longest time :)
    Even though its online, I'm still happy

    Honestly, in some ways, even the in-person ones wouldn't be like this. Like, the live commenting? We could chat before the show, but not during.

    I still want to go to an in-person show, but this format has some advantages of its own.
