MMD x Macross

Recommended Posts

Hello!

I'd like to introduce you to a little project series I'm attempting to start!

As of late, I've come to really enjoy making 3D Macross pictures using a program known as MMD (MikuMikuDance)
It's a freeware program that was originally made as a super basic 3D platform meant to be hand in hand with the Vocaloid singing software. However, over the years MMD has become quite advanced, and many models that aren't just moe Vocaloid girls are compatible with the program now! MME (MikuMikuEffects) makes it 10x easier to load the image with effects and make pictures look great!

Anyone can download MMD here and I'm more than happy to walk anyone through how to use it if interested.

As you can imagine, I'm utilizing the program to bring us some Valkyrie action! Maybe different Macross scenes in the future!

But I have one issue, I hope some one ...anyone would be willing to help me with?
I don't have very many Macross models, Variable Fighters or otherwise.
Most all of my models I use are made by みせたがりP (Misetagari-P).
His Uploader: http://ux.getuploader.com/9566587/
His Nico: http://www.nicovideo.jp/user/9566587
His Twitter: https://twitter.com/ZxcvbnmPark

To my knowledge he has made:

  • VF-0
  • SV-51
  • VT-1
  • VF-1 (Vermillion Platoon colors+ others I haven't looked at yet)
  • VF-1J&S (Unsure of colors)
  • VF-1 With strike and armored packs
  • Queadluun-Rhea
  • Regult
  • Ex-Gear (Empty so I can apply it to human models I have)
  • Macross Quarter
  • VF-25 (Came with a bunch of colors. Not sure how many yet)
  • VF-171 and 171EX
  • VF-27
  • YF-29
  • VB-6
  • Vajra

Other Macross models I have found from various sources that I can use in my project!
YF-19 Isamu: 相良P
VF-19 Fire Valkyrie:相良P

Sheryl and Ranka in various outfits from the movies and TV series: Pon
School Uniform Alto: Pon

Ai-Kun: Pon

Destroid Tomahawk: SKG

Destroid Defender: SKG

Would anyone know of any more places I can find 3D Macross models? I know there are plenty of 3D model Macross threads here on the forums. But any compatible with MMD?
I would LOVE a VF-17 or VF-4 to help illustrate scenes from FalconKPD's Fan comic(Which you should TOTALLY read!!!)

Anyway!

I'll post all of my pictures I have thus far for this project as replies.

AND YES!

Requests are open!

But please note I'm limited to what みせたがり/the other modelers listed have made... so if there's any other places people can think of how to acquire more MMD Macross models... let me know!!!!

Project #1


29_by_bloodyvocaloid-d8njet6.jpg

YF-29 Durandal
You can view the full 1920x1080 version by clicking here

So here's a forward swept wing version of the VF-25 for ya! Also known as the YF-29 Durandal! You probably can't tell with the shading I applied but it came with Alto's red color scheme from the Sayonara no Tsubasa movie.

This was the first Macross model I ever downloaded and was excited to play around with how effects looked on it!

Overall, I really like the Durandal, but I also like to make fun of it.

Project # 2

VF-25 vs. VF-27 DOG FIGHT

Click here to see the full 1920x1080 picture

Recreated a scene from Frontier!....accidentally. Was playing around with Brera's Lucifer (Looks like the pack also came with Grace's?) and the camera angle I chose looked like a great shot! So who better for Mr. Stern to be taking pot shots at? I gotta say, I'm blow away by how well the shading on these models turned out with MME
