Description:

Sexy-ish (I hope) anime character, simple textures + materials, custom rig incl. facial bones, with rigid body physics, multiple clothing configurations, drivers for simplified switching between parameters. Load with auto-run scripts or it won't look right :)

This is my first fully original character model (as opposed to ones where I've edited other people's meshes) and represents a whole lot of other Blender firsts for me as well. See the included text for notes on usage.

I come to Blender from MikuMikuDance and the great MMD modellers like Kakomiki and Tda have been a huge inspiration for me. Azusa has an optional read-from rig that allows you to load canned MMD animations onto her via the mmd_tools plugin, which is available at https://github.com/powroupi/blender_mmd_tools .

Although I'm aware of a hundred problems with her, I appreciate any criticism, as it helps me to prioritize fixes-- sometimes I get too lost in tiny, unimportant issues. I'm also grateful for any positive remarks, as they keep me motivated and help me through the times when it feels like I can't get anything right. I can keep Azusa updated with easy fixes, but after far too long spent working on her, I'm ready for a new model :)

Hope you enjoy her! If you make anything with her, it would mean a lot to me if you linked in the comments!

    A nice model! Is there a good tutorial about MMD in English?

    Plenty of them! A good place to get started is https://learnmmd.com/ (where I've written a few tutorials myself.) For somebody familiar with Blender, the limitations would be frustrating, but it does do real-time (game engine, HLSL) rendering, which is nice.

    Thanks, that's useful. You know how it is, you try to stylize, but sometimes it's hard to realize how much is too much. (And counting heads never seems to work for anime models....)

    Wow, thank you! I'm not super happy with it in hindsight; some mistakes were made, I'm still figuring out how to do it all. But it's definitely really nice to hear that you like it :)
