Hatsune Miku fans are agog at the quality of Miku’s latest avatar – the “Tda” Append Miku model for MikuMikuDance, which looks as if it may bring her 3D fan-made videos to a whole new level.
MikuMikuDance, the 3D dance software used to create so many Vocaloid-related music videos, depends on fan-made 3D models of the various characters so beloved of Vocaloid fans – most notably Hatsune Miku herself.
One such fan, “Tda,” spent months lovingly recreating Miku in her “Append” outfit for use in MMD, resulting in the gorgeous creation below, which perhaps rivals even Sega’s live performance models.
Some of the videos she appears in so far (as she is new there are not many, and their quality varies):
Tda Miku in detail:
It even comes with an ahegao face, something Sega seems unlikely to ever be including in its performances…
Tda Miku is being sold as a ¥525 downloadable package including the various .mqo, .pmx, and .psd files of interest to MMD users (not very much of this is likely to be of use to non-3D graphics types; some parts are also available freely) – see her maker’s homepage or her product page for more information.
