Just your "ordinary" swedish MMD user that likes to make textures and model edits. I collect models, mainly those belonging to the "Vocaloid" category.

I'm also the owner of CituSmoothie (link found below) where I post download links to various HQ MMD models. If you have a tumblr, please make sure to follow me there ;)

Besides MMD, I like to draw (especially manga-inspired-art), read fantasy books and play video games.

I'm not talking about posing, as in "posing in front of the camera" here.. I'm talking about posing models in MMD.

If I had to say one thing I dislike most about using the program posing definately takes the nr. 1 spot.

I guess, for the ordinary MMD user it's not that much of a hassle, heck some people might even think its fun. But for me, not so much.

I run a MMD-blog which have been active now for almost 3 years. About 5 days a week, I feature 5 models... so around 25 models per week. Every single one of these models needs to be posed in one way or the other... Yeah without doing much math one can figure out that is A LOT of posing. 

Sure, for the most part I use pose packs. But thing is, first I have to think about the character.. Is it cute? Cool? Sexy? Different poses obviously fit different characters. Secondly I need to at least slightly edit every pose I use on a model. Both because, well every model is different and I don't want any arms going through the body or other problems like that.. Also I dislike having several models with the EXACT same pose.. so I try to pose them a little different so they don't look too similar. 

I'm not exaggerating when I say that I spend at least one hour each day just to get the poses right. Together with the time it takes to download the models, unzip the folders, render the pictures, "fix" them in photoshop and upload them I can definately say that if I finish everything in about 2 hours I'm lucky. Although, it is better now when I have Duekko helping me with the model info and occasionally finding links... it still takes up just so much time because of the posing.

I've been thinking a lot how to get around this problem. One thought was that I wouldn't pose them at all... And just leave them in their "natural pose" so to say. (Like on the MMDwiki for example). But, that just seemed so darn boring. 
Another idea was that I had 2 poses; one for males and one for females, and then just use those on all characters. But it's the same problem there, it will get boring and repetitive. 

I guess the results reflect how much time I put down.

Well, this was sort of a rant... and there's not much to be done about this problem of mine :P Ofc, I could always just quit featuring models, but overall, it's rly fun and I love helping others finding models.. so It's not something I'll stop doing anytime soon :)

So, what do you guys think is the most boring/tedious/irritating etc aspect of using MMD? Please comment :P
