frame-by-frame / live2D cubism


Though not formally trained, I have experience animating many of my illustrative works either through frame-by-frame methods or through Live2D cubism. I take pride in acquiring my skills through experimentation, studying online tutorials, and sheer determination.

My skills have been useful in creating unique PNG models, streaming emotes, and Vtuber models for various clients.

I even created a TikTok documenting my journey creating a “Vtuber” from scratch. Everything from designing the character persona, illustrating the final version on Clip Studio Paint, animating it in Live2D Cubism, and finally acting as the character. The goal of this project was not necessarily done as a way to give a tutorial on my process. It is a visual documentation and an excuse to experiment with various types of storytelling and content creation styles.
