  • Think I’m gonna leave the forum for a bit all this constant drama makes me realize how much I hate vocaloid fandom. It should’ve never came to the west

    I honestly wouldn't knock the Western fandom, partially because it does trend younger than the Japanese fandom on average (so you're always having to dodge immature teenagers when you're older), and partially because the Japanese fandom has just as much drama as the Western fandom, but it doesn't usually cross over to Western communities due to the language barrier. But take as much time off from the forum as you need - Vocadrama is absolutely exhausting to sit through.

    Sorry @Blue Of Mind I appreciate your comment but I hate western fandom and I’m leaving for good. This is the most vicious, brutal, rude, and unforgiving fandom I’ve ever been in. So many are just self righteous and just mean I’m done with this and I stand by my feelings.

    Your feelings are valid, absolutely, but the Western fandom is hardly the only place you’re going to find this kind of thing. Best of luck to you.

    And with all due respect, if you think Vocaloid is bad, make sure to stay as far away from the Star Wars fandom as possible. Trying to be part of that fandom is part of what sent me running back to Vocaloid. :clara_ani_lili:
    (My fun hc for this song is that the transition from Yuki to Flower is Yuki growing up. Yes I know they sound nothing alike lol)
    Posting my project Sekai ID here as well: 5753726552244231 would love some friends!
    Does anyone have any good tutorials for drawing figures and perspective (particularly the perspective lines) I wanna get better at drawing figures I don’t even know how to do a body outline 😢

    I highly recommend Proko when it comes to figure drawing fundamentals n' stuff - he has an incredibly insightful playlist on that sort of thing! I'm not entirely sure if he has a video that goes into depth on perspective lines in particular, but I'm sure you'll be able to find something online since there's so many great tutorials and courses. I know how frustrating art can be—even as a fairly experienced artist—so don't push yourself too hard and try to have fun! ^^

    There’s a Miku cover I downloaded back in, oh... 2016? that I can no longer find anywhere else. It was one of the best usages of her high range I’ve ever heard.

    God I love this song.

    It’s so good!! One of the hidden gems in this fandom! Man I wish that cover was still around I can only imagine how good it would be with Miku 😍😍 Teto has some really good originals.
    Worst thing to come out of the vocaloid monopoly ending is how many synths there are to keep up with now, with varying degrees of quality too. Vocaloid wasn’t perfect but there were certain things you could expect, and it was in one central place. I can’t be bothered to keep up with a lot of vocals anymore now. It’s way too many and some I don’t even understand what they are 😪 Not to mention a lot of my favorite producers will probably still use vocaloid for awhile so I’ll probably just stick to keeping up with NT and that’s it.

    I'm only keeping up with SynthV, CeVIO and maybe A.I.VOICE (for Yuzuru) and Maghni so far. Everything else coming out doesn't have anything that makes it stand out to me as someone who just enjoys listening to vocal synths and doesn't produce anything.

    I’ll never forget the time someone said just listen to Pinocchio-P instead of Kikuo... They're both legends so why listen to one over the other, but besides that their music doesn’t even begin to cover the same subjects or sound. I don’t get how you could ever compare them.

    I know I hate it so much. Like I’m totally fine with people being uncomfortable with his music or wanting to avoid it, I certainly don’t listen to every song of his. But expression in art is a thing no one knows what he’s been through and he clearly doesn’t promote these things as a good thing. Not all music will be sunshine and rainbows, even deeper than that when I did more research into Kikuo and Si_Ku it’s very clear they’re trying to express something about childhood, innocence, and trauma for some people that might be helpful. Plus there are plenty of positive producers you can listen to, no need for a “callout” Vocafandom gives me a headache sometimes lol.

    people really do like to call anything and anyone "problematic" for no reason huh... kinda ironic that it's happened with Kikuo since the point of his music is to discuss problems with the world yet people make up problems about his music itself. i don't understand people sometimes.

    ^^^ Exactly. Whether people are comfortable with it or not the things Kikuo puts in his music does happen to people, if you don’t want to think about it or discuss that you’re perfectly welcome not to but he doesn’t have to pretend these subjects don’t exist. He isn’t automatically a weird person just because he decides to cover a dark topic. It’s why I wish people would see vocaloid beyond the characters sometimes and realize it’s a tool of expression first, it was made so people could cover a barrage of topics and ideas. Music is made to convey messages not just to sound good or say things we like.
    Meiko’s hair looks pretty good in drawings or official designs but every time I see her 3D model’s (Diva, Sekai) I don’t like how it looks. Really wish her hair was a bit thicker and longer especially for her V3 hairstyle. I really do not like how thin it often looks.
    Fashion forward Levius! Nakata-Sensei drew a more casual take on his protagonist and it looks great!
