On November nineteenth of 2019, I began streaming for the very first time. It was a brief stream of me taking part in Risk of Rain 1, I imagine and… it was alright. I wasn’t tremendous good and never precisely too chatty nor did I’ve any viewers… however it type of began this pastime and I’m glad I’m doing it.
Anyway, as you might be able to inform, this upcoming Saturday is November nineteenth once more… and I needed to do one thing particular…
RISE OF THE LICH!
Basically, one other 24-hour-stream… however I’ll try to create a VTuber-Model… with none prior expertise… from scratch! I’ll design, draw, and rig the mannequin on stream, work out any points… and hopefully, I’ll be carried out by the tip of the 24 hours.
I’ve needed to do that for ages… the Vtuber-Model-Creation-Thing, not the 24 hours… In truth, I didn’t plan on doing any 24-hour-streams for fairly some time now however hey, right here we’re.
I figured that if I don’t do it now, I gained’t do it till subsequent yr. At the second, I can nonetheless sustain with my research. Next week, I’m gone over the weekend. The weekdays are spent finding out principally. After subsequent week, I’m undecided if I’d have the time to do something like creating and rigging a mannequin… and after that, there’s Christmas and New Year’s – aka holidays I’ll spend with my household. Then there are exams… then Uni begins once more and I’ll be transferring… after which I’ll have exams once more principally.
It’s the right time for a problem like this and I hope it goes properly.
What is a VTuber Model anyway?
Well, as for that query:
A VTuber is “an online entertainer who uses a virtual avatar generated using computer graphics”. It’s like taking part in a task and having a complete character with lore and whatnot.
A tad exhausting to clarify however in essence, I simply wanna do this and it’s principally what I’ve been doing anyway… however now, I’ll hopefully do it utilizing a mannequin.
To create it, I’ll have to attract some idea artwork, take into consideration the clothes and poses and whatnot… export all of it as a particular format into Live 2D Cubism and there… I’ll have to really discover ways to rig every thing. “Rigging” signifies that particular components are supposed to maneuver in particular methods… and I want to determine learn how to connect issues and make it in order that they transfer inside particular parameters and never past. It’s gonna be fairly troublesome.
Plans for the stream:
Naturally, that’s not the one factor we’re doing.
We’re additionally gonna take a look at previous clips, do some sport giveaways, chat a bunch, and play some video games right here and there in between chapters… It’s gonna be nice! I’ll in all probability eat on stream, which is totally different… Pizza evaluation? No clue!
Anyway, artwork, chats, clips, giveaways, some video games, extra artwork, numerous despair… and properly, I assume it is going to be my debut as a correct “VTuber”. Looking ahead to it!
So… all in all… come hang around, and let’s rejoice collectively. Take your time, I’ll be there all day! Literally.
