I've decided to keep Jewelry confined to the Accessories folder (for the time being) and Shoes & Boots can go into clothing. If we get alot of deviations in those folders, then we'll see if it warrants an expansion.
Happy Holidays and an Update!I'd been planning to move the rulebook to it's own journal post for some time (just because it's easier to edit when needed), so from now on, you can access the group's rules via this document. The welcome/intro section of the page has been updated to include it.
For good measure, you can also copy & paste this URL into your browser.
Regardless of the holiday you and your family are celebrating this season, please have a safe and happy one. If you plan on going out for your local New Year's festivities, please drink responsibly (if you're old enough to partake in such things) and have a designated driver or other backup plan in place.
Happy Holidays from West-Side MMD!
WEST SIDE MMD RULEBOOKCurrent as of December 27th, 2015
Welcome to West-Side MMD! A community for people who like to make their own models and accessories for MikuMikuDance. We accept all skill levels, so long as you've got at least one original model or accessory on display in your gallery. WIPs are also accepted, as are properly credited collaborations (ie: One person does bones, another does expressions or physics, etc.) Just about anyone can make an edit, recolour, mix-and-match various parts, or rip something from a game, but it takes alot of hard work and much love to be able to create something on your own.
Please be advised that this document is subject to updates from time to time, but we will always notify the members!
December 27th, 2015 - First version of this journal/document
These are the terms that govern submissions to the group. It should be noted that a couple of rules have been condensed from the previous vers
Regarding CollaborationsRecently we've been seeing more model of the month entries as submissions to the group. Given that many of these models use multiple parts from different sources, my co-founder and I feel that there needs to be some clarification in the rules to avoid confusion.
Currently, rule #5 states that deviations featuring edits of existing models (such as taking pre-made parts from other models like Kio, Nakao or LAT) will not be accepted, and rule #6 says no game rips (or things stolen from the 3D warehouse). This will not change. However, due to the recent number of models featuring multiple parts from multiple sources, the rules for collaborations still need to be defined...
Rule #8 already permits modeling parts that are intended to fit an existing model, so long as you specify that the part was intended for a base, and which base it is/who made it (ie: accessories or alternate outfits for another model). I'm seeing that lots of people already do this so that's
Summer is Here!We at West-Side MMD would like to wish you guys a safe and happy summer vacation (unless you're doing a summer course like me, in which case you cray cray) and Happy Canada Day/Independence Day to those in the US and Canada! No doubt the fireworks have been going on all week even if the big day doesn't start until tomorrow!
EDIT: While I have your attention, I've created a new folder for help and requests. You can submit screenshots there if you're having a problem with something. I've noticed more and more groups are using these sorts of folder systems. Just please note: This group is geared more towards modeling and texturing than animation and posing. That may or may not have an effect on response time, so please be patient. Also, should someone fulfil your request, could you please mark it as solved somehow? It just makes things easier on everybody. Thanks!
Warning about suspicious activity in MLP groupsThis journal has been circulating lately but due to the nature of the story I thought it might be a good idea to share with our group members. I don't know how many of our members are actively involved in the MLP groups here on DA but if you are, this warning is for you.
There've been incidents of a user joining MLP groups as a mod/admin to mess with the settings and in some cases, delete content by the folder. It also looks as if they may be creating new accounts, this person has been keeping tabs on them and their 'name changes' in their journal.
We're not a dedicated MLP group but if any of our members either belong to an existing MLP group or own their own, please talk to your admin/mods and make sure they're aware of the situation and if you are one (a mod or admin) please please consider disabling auto join on your group, as that's what this person uses to get in and make a mess
Approaching the 50 member markIt's come to my attention that the group is starting to grow more rapidly, so I think we'll probably need more staff soon. I just don't want it to become me going away for weeks on end while someone else tries to manage the whole group for me by themselves. I've been in a situation where I was the one trying to handle someone else's duties and it can be a bit of a chore, especially on short notice. And that was just for a forumwide game of Werewolf.
Also, I've awarded the-horrible-mu a promotion to Co-Founder for when I'm busy with school stuff and can't be around as much. Although I still plan to check in periodically to make sure things are running smoothly. Like I said, I don't want to be the one that swaps someone else with my own responsibilities.
If you or someone you know is looking for a staff position though, here's what we're looking for:
Relatively active within the group, and (preferably) has submitted quite a few deviations
Can check back now and again to monitor su
Gallery PermissionsThere was an issue where certain folders had restricted permissions (mostly the newer ones), this has been resolved. Also, I've 'promoted' a couple of the group's top contributors to well... contributor rank (congrats on your good work guys). Permissions aren't too different right now, but they may well be in the future when we have more members. The biggest difference is that contributors are auto approved on gallery submissions. This is because I've seen that you've been following the rules and I trust you guys in my omnipresence. Keep up the good work ok?
I've also extended the 'voting' period on submissions to 1 month since I'm pretty busy with college (animation no less). I noticed that if I leave it at one week, a few of your submissions (while legitimate), expire and I either have to send them again or you guys have to submit them again, or people might be thinking they've violated the rules or something. I just don't want to have people missing out on my account.
New Collections folder!I've noticed that some of our recent submissions have a little bit of everything, which is cool but it's sometimes tough for me to figure out where they belong. So if you want to release a big collection (like, 5-10 or more) of assorted items I've made a folder for assortments of things
If you've got mostly accessories and a couple of unrelated items I don't mind if you put it in the folder that goes with the majority of stuff in the pack, but if you've got a mishmash of hair, clothes, shoes and accessories then you might want to consider submitting it to the assorted folder.
Just a quick updateI'm reposting this since it accidentally went to my own journal the last time.
Anyway, still catching up on a few of the submissions from during my first animation semester, so please bear with me as I try to get back on track. If you submitted anything between late October and early December, you're welcome to try again (or I'll just go back into my list and re-submit the requests myself) if it meets the group submission standards.
And while I'm on the subject, I'll be posting an update to the group rules & guidelines soon. It's occurred to me that I can say all that in fewer words, so it makes more sense. And for the sake of being redundantly convenient, I'll even put up a PDF version for download somewhere...
IDK nobody really reads PDFs, but it feels official so I'm gonna do it anyway
Papyrus x Reader x SansPapyrus laughed eagerly and loudly as he and his brother Sans walked back to their stations.
“-And did you see how badly that human failed on my last puzzle?!It goes to show that I will be a great Royal Guard!NYEH HEH HEH!”Papyrus said, praising himself.Sans, who usually doesn’t leave his post (out of laziness) had to laugh also.”Is it really so hard to turn Xs into Os?” Sans chuckled.
As the Skelo-Bros neared Papyrus station, they noticed two little little legs squirming out as if they were stuck.Sans glanced over at the legs as if it was as usual as a hyper Lesser Dog, while Papyrus looked dumbstruck.”ANOTHER HUMAN?!”Papyrus yelled, more trying to get attention then being surprised.The small person automatically fell to the ground, fearfully clutching a flip-phone that had been given to her from her monster ‘guardian’.
Papyrus looked down upon the young girl as Sans merely stood back, completely cool.The girl, frozen with fear, lo
PLEASE READ - The Ransomware EpidemicPlease share, fave and spread this journal. You could help many people on DeviantArt protect their computers from this horrific cyberattack and raise awareness about the issue to those who haven't yet heard of it.
Funny how all these years of me picking and choosing updates to keep my computer functioning how I want it (you know... to have what you paid for and keep my product without others stealing it and modifying it *cough*badupdates*cough* ... basic consumer rights... but anyway) came to haunt me.
So I finally decided that I'd bite the bullet and update my updates... only to find out Windows Update was refusing to update and would forever stay stuck "searching for updates". Just my luck. When I really don't want updates they try to install, and when I really need them they don't.
Anyhow, why am I so desper
Doflamingo x Reader: Family Matters
There have been many things you have seen on Baby5’s face, but only rarely have you ever seen her looking glum. Most times you’ve seen her, she’s either exuberant, furious, or comically crying, depending on her “boyfriend” situation. Other than that, she was always relatively calm, with a slight smile.
“Little Miss, what has you feeling so down?” You walk up to her side, putting a hand on her shoulder.
“(name), I wasn’t expecting to see you.” She sighed, and then chuckled a little. “How many times have I told you to call me by my name? I don’t need to be called ‘Little Miss’.”
“I will continue calling you ‘Little Miss’ as long as I am a servant working here at the castle and you are considered Family by the Young M
