Lets talk about Japanese 3DCG, Cannon GirlOIDS and the amazing robot girl designs of Higeen γ²γ’εœ’. Long before v-tubers, and MikuMikuDance there was: Rokkaku Daioh ε…­θ§’ε€§ηŽ‹ free modeling software! 3DCG Deep dive. Part 1 #discatte_archeology (1999, 3dcg, anime) RT=πŸ’œ

In the year 2000. I was living that cyber net life without a care for these hellsites known as social networks. Downloading and trading anime fansubs from IRC. Exploring the wide world of Japanese file sharing, known as WinMX, and generally ingesting all things neat and anime.

A lot of artists sites are long gone. But through a lot of archive spelunking, and a _lot_ of luck we've been cataloging and revisiting whats left, and this is some _good_ stuff. So what are we looking at here? Several things! First off: Rokkaku Daioh

Second: HiGeen's lovely robot girl art. An amazing style that both HiGeen and others used to create 3d models with Rokkaku and other tools.

And last: CANNON GirlOIDS. A collection of Rokkaku 3d models of robot girls hosted at -CypherS TufT- (A site we will revisit in later deep dive)

now back from our commercial break. had to test some workflow, rendered one of the models in blender with autosmooth and freestyle :3

Those wings look like they'd make perfect shmup beam cannons πŸ€”

And infact they ARE beam cannons. All of these models are meant to transform. The software doesn't have bones/joints but its not too hard to select groups pick a view and move them into place.
