This is one of the first full meals I learned to cook! It’s something my mom invented and doesn’t require spices or things like that, so it’s really good when you’re starting out or you want something simple! It also makes a TON, so you can make it on the weekend and feed yourself for a while. It…

Art Part 1: Preparing Your PSD File For Modeling
So the overall idea is that, you want any part that can move to be placed on a separate layer. For this part, I’ll be using Ethan as an example.
Something to note: you don’t need to be a good artist or anything to use Live2D. Ethan was drawn by an amazing artist named Nicole K. Given the final high-resolution PSD file, I was able to separate the parts and prepare the image for modeling.
LET’S GET STARTED
Here’s what my layers looked like after I’d separated everything. They don’t have to be in folders, just separate layers. I chose to use folders because it was easier to keep track of everything.
Pay special attention to parts that are overlapping. The whole concept of animating your character revolves around moving these parts, so be sure to draw the parts that might show if your character moves (ie. back of shirt collars, parts of hair, extra skin, etc.).
Here’s are my texture files. Please note that texture images should be a square and 2^N power pixels width/height (ie. 512 x 512, 1024 x 1024 pixels). I’ve labeled this image with parts corresponding to my layer’s palette:
1. Front hair right
2. Front hair
3. Back hair
4. Front hair left
6. Neck (shadow)
8. Mouth upper (and skin around it)
10. Mouth inside
11. Mouth bottom (and skin around it)
12. Mouth bottom curve line
14. Upper eyeline and lower eyeline
15. Skin around eyes
16. White parts of the eye
17. Eye balls
18. Back of shirt collar
22. Chest skin area
23. Shirt collar
24. Left hand (extra part for arm switching)
26. Regular arms (divide the upper arms and lower arms).
27. Bent left arm (extra part for arm switching)
28. Back of arm collar
After you’re done with the separate parts, you want to save the whole image of the model as a guide for placing the rest of your parts in the Modeler.
- If your image is flattened and all on one layer, layer masks are really helpful for separating your parts.
That’s it for now, stay tuned for part 2!
You have to use an image you already made, so it’s best to start out as a layered file, then organize the main parts on a transparent 1024 x 1024 png to look something like this
then import through “Edit Texture”
select your file and it will appear here
you’ll get a pen tool that you use to trace around the parts of your character to “cut” it out as I did with the head here
go to the Edit box then Parts to assign the peice
it will plug in to the parts box, and just do the rest for the remainder of your character
I hope this helps a little!

I like it
"It’s currently unclear who exactly is filling the role of Thor going forward, as the original character wasn’t gender-swapped."
“No longer is the classic male hero able to hold the mighty hammer, Mjölnir, a brand new female hero will emerge will who will be worthy of the name THOR.”
"And this new Thor isn’t a temporary female substitute – she’s now the one and only Thor, and she is worthy!" "
" "This is not She-Thor. This is not Lady Thor. This is not Thorita. This is THOR. This is the THOR of the Marvel Universe."
meanwhile DC’s like “we love ubisoft”
Australian scientists have developed a pair of anti-shark wetsuits that make divers appear invisible by camouflaging their bodies in the sea and trick sharks into thinking surfers are poisonous. A team of researchers from the University of Western Australia joined forces with designers from Shark Attack Mitigation Systems (SAMS) to create the suits. The blue pattern of the Elude suit can’t be seen by the shark because the fish are colour blind. While the stripes on the Diverter suit mimic the colours of poisonous fish to warn the sharks off.
YOU SEE THIS IS FANTASTIC. THIS IS WHAT WE NEED TO DO. NOT KILL SHARKS BECAUSE THEY’RE CURIOUS AND ATTACK US. WE’RE IN THEIR WATERS. WE’RE MAKING THEIR HUNTING GROUNDS SMALLER.
This is not a tasty gummy sweet but a Jewel Caterpillar found in Amazon Rainforest. They are covered with sticky goo-like, gellatinous tubercles that provides protection from its predator like ants until they metamorphosise into winged moths.
HAVE YOU SEEN IT GROWN UP THOUGH
have you seen the cocoon it makes though?
it’s so pretty as a baby, it looks like an actual gem. then suddenly it pupates into a net thing and when it comes out it looks like the fucking Lorax
this is a pokemon
I find it really funny it took people this long to realize this moth exists. Oregano is too cool. haha xD
i loved them still tbh
