Do we have any Vocaloid users in here? Care to trade tips or upload songs or something?

Do you have any advice for how to mess with the various traits (like breathiness, gender, whatever) throughout the song to make it sound overall better?

I am working on something now, I would be able to post it in a couple weeks if all goes decently well.

I would like to try this. I checked out some tutorial videos on youtube but I heard Miku is coming out with an English version soon so I was waiting for that.

Thought I'd make a guide on how to make simple flash loops. This is how I've been making them but if there are better ways of doing it I'm all ears. Post any betterments you can come up with.
Might try to cram the whole guide into one picture later.

What you need:
A music file
A .gif
A version of Flash
A music editing program. I use Audacity since it's free and easy to use.

The size of your loop depends on how long the music and animations are and what quality they are in. Shorter with worse quality = smaller file. Try not to go above 2-3 MB in size since sites where you can upload your loops usually have a size limit somewhere around that area.
Another way to make your file smaller is to open the properties on the animation bitmaps and change the file from png to jpeg. Not necessary but small files are always nice.

Open up your loop in a web browser to see how it will look like once you've uploaded it to the interbutts.

Here's how it turned out. Not great by any means but sufficient for this guide.

I've posted other loops I've made in this thread. Please excuse the moon runes.

Here's another great loop for reference.

Thanks for reading! If there's anything you think should be changed or added, please do tell.

Pretty in-depth; I don't see anything that will really confuse people who are new to this. Just to expand on a couple things, I'm not trying to upstage you or anything:
>>267
An easier way is to align the gif to the top left corner, go the Documents Properties, and just hit the Contents tab. No need to remember pixel dimensions.
>>272
Please at least do 64 kbps. That's already ear rape; I couldn't imagine going any lower.

Some of you may recognizance from the style what this resembles. Yes, I'm gonna make gordon freemon's crowbar

right now, I can tell it's gonna be a hell of alot of work, due to the surface being so corroded that it's now bumpy instead of being smooth. I'm gonna have to get fresh sandpaper and break out the belt sander to get it smooth again.

After you acquire it, pick up some hockey stick grip tape. Red, naturally. You now have a lightweight, functional Freeman bar. There are various textured spray paints, but I already had the tape, and I knew it would be easy to hold on to, whereas the spray stuff was an unknown.

What are some tips for learning to use a tablet? I recently bought a Bamboo tablet(Not the Bamboo Fun), and it feels as though it is too sensitive when I'm drawing. I've tried changing some of the settings to no avail. Also, was this the correct tablet to buy?

Like the others have said it really is just a matter of getting a lot of practice, just like drawing on paper. It's strange at first but eventually you will get used to separating the motions of your hand and what you see on the screen.
As far as sensitivity goes, this is really just a matter of the size of the tablet you buy, which is why the larger tablets are so much more expensive. You could keep going with the (I am assuming small) Bamboo or upgrade to a larger size. As someone who has owned 2 graphires, an Intuos, and now works on a Cintiq I can speak from personal experience that if you plan on taking digital art seriously the upgrade is very much worth it, the Bamboo and similar lines of product are designed mainly for casual or light use.

I'm going to start out on this for a while and if I do end up sticking with it I will probably buy a new one. Also I'll probably post some picture I've drawn to get some critique, others may do so as well. I also need to learn how to shade well so that I can learn how to color well.
>> No. 228 [Edit]
>>227

I've found, and this is just my personal experience, that learning the fundamentals of drawing like line weight, shading, and coloring are best learned with more traditional media, it is just more intuitive. With digital art there are more degrees of separation between you and the concept you are trying to learn. Strictly for learning groundwork processes pencil and paper (and oil paints) have worked best for me. Physically mixing paints and moving a brush across canvas then seeing the finished product is satisfying in a way I think digital work can't be. I still prefer working traditionally but there are just sometimes where that just is not practical which is why I use tablets.

Learn to draw on paper first. You should at least get line weight variation down before starting too heavily on your tablet as its sensitivity can make consistency difficult.

I do know the basics of shading etc. although I could probably use more practice with coloring.

Can I just get your opinion on which of these flash files has better walking animation and which looks better in general.

Thanks.

I liked the first one better. Like >>99 said, try to get some knees in there, heighten the distance the feet rises and you should be good.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Here's the flash I've been working on till now.

Opinions and suggestions are very welcome!

Nice. The only thing I'd change is that the light when Quickman comes out of the door would probably look better if they looked more like the sun beams used later in the video.

Better than I was expecting. You really need to work on your perspective, though.

So if any of you have seen /a/'s draw threads, people request something, a drawfag makes it. Well this picture I made they said looks like it was drawn by a 14 year old its so bad. Is it true? Am I that incompetent? I'd spoiler it for NSFW, but doesn't work here.

OP I know this is going to annoy you, but find a model and use it for reference before you draw. You'll never be good otherwise.
>> No. 43 [Edit]
I don't even know if thats a 14 year old's drawing. Hell, I can't draw that well even now.
