Just your "ordinary" swedish MMD user that likes to make textures, charts and model edits. I've been doing MMD since 2011 and still have a burning interest ;) I rly like the character Hatsune Miku and therefore love to collect models depicting her.

I'm 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.

Regarding The Future of CitruSmoothie -Please Read

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 7, 2015, 8:23 AM
Ok, so.. As I did explain earlier in another journal here on DA, working with CitruSmoothie around 5 days a week takes a huge amount of time. Right now it works, but sometime in the future I might not have as much freetime as I have now and so will have to make some changes to the blog to make it easier (and less time-consuming) to manage. 

I thought I'd present here some "solutions" to perhaps make my work regarding the blog a little easier in the future. Please comment what you think. Either if you're fine with any of the suggestions below or if you have another solution you'd like to share. I won't make any changes right now so don't be alarmed, it's just if I get less freetime in a few months or so.

1. Only feature Vocaloid and certain UTAU models.
A trend I've been noticing during my time with the blog is that models of Miku, Rin, Luka, Teto, Neru etc. almost always become popular. I mean just looking at this: Most Popular Models Featured on CitruSmoothie shows that a lot of the most popular models on the blog have been Vocaloid and UTAU models. Also when I did a survey for CitruSmoothie a while back people said that the most important models to have in their collection would be Vocaloids and UTAUs. 

2. Only use the T-pose. 
Right now I pose every model I feature. And even though I use pose packs the posing has always been the most time consuming part of the whole process (as I still need to edit every pose and so on). A very quick way to fix this would be to just skip the posing altogether and just use the "natural" T-pose instead. Other MMD-model sites (like MikuDance Info (R.I.P) and the MMDwiki) use(d) this approach and it seems to work fine for them. I know it would look kinda boring but the models and content would still remain the same. 

3. Only feature models made by some pre-chosen makers
I would decide beforehand to only feature models made by more "well-established" model makers (like kio, mamama, saboten, ISAO etc). Or perhaps make a poll to let people vote for the model makers themselves. I'd personally feel a little bad doing this though, as there are excellent models out there made by people that are "less-known" in the MMD community. 

(4. Ask for help)
Personally I'm not so sure this would work. I've asked people for help with making pictures before and that worked fine, but that was only for a week or so. I don't think so many people would be willing to take on the task of doing pictures 5 days a week for a very long time... for nothing. (Except that I would give them credit for the pictures ofc). Even if I ask several people I bet there would still be problems (like person A couldn't come online that day and so on). 

That's really all I could think of... but again, please comment and tell me what you think. All opinions are appreciated :)

Anyone here playing Rune Factory 4?

Been dating Dylas and Leon simultaneously for about a year (in game) until I finally decided to marry Dylas XP Leon was a little... I dunno too... arrogant for me?

Anyways, so here's some Dylas fanart. Kind of like his design ;)
