waytres:
ok so i downloaded and installed Live2d's Cubism and I am having trouble getting started but I can't find the answers i'm looking for in the extensive manual so i'm hoping you can help me!? I have it up right now and I'm wondering how to start my image?? do I draw right on there or post something made on photoshop?? and if i draw on there which tool do i use?? none of them look like they're drawing an image.

You have to use an image you already made, so it’s best to start out as a layered file, then organize the main parts on a transparent 1024 x 1024 png to look something like this image

then import through “Edit Texture”

image

select your file and it will appear here 

image

you’ll get a pen tool that you use to trace around the parts of your character to “cut” it out as I did with the head here

image

go to the Edit box then Parts to assign the peice

image

it will plug in to the parts box, and just do the rest for the remainder of your character

I hope this helps a little! 

OK this Emofuri thing is confusing, let’s try Live2d’s Cubism!

image

the software is similar to emote/emofuri, a little more complicated though, with modeling, texture maps and set up is different, but at least it’s in English! with an extensive how to manual and dozens of sample models to play around with 

there’s free version you can download

I picked up this program almost instantly, after struggling with emofuri all day (T^T I’ll try again another time), I really just wanna jump into this style of animating
