VTuber Resources

These guides/resources will be continuously updated periodically based on the interest and support of those that come across them and my free time/availability.


VTuber Resources

This is a resource aggregation project that collects and organizes all the resources that I happen to come across!


Faf's Resources

These are resources that I have written/created myself!

This is a 50 page in-depth and organized guide is written specifically for:

1) Those that are looking to commission a Live2D model for VTubing
2) Artists that need guidance in drawing and separating parts for Live2D models

If you enjoyed the guide or found it to be useful, do consider supporting me by:

✧ Sharing the guide by retweeting this post on Twitter and recommending it to those in need of guidance!
✧Checking out my Twitch, Youtube, Twitter, and/or supporting me on Ko-Fi!


This is a simple checklist / workflow suggestion for Live2D Rigging VTuber Models:

✧ You can make a copy and edit it to fit your workflow
✧ You can send this to your Live2D model artist to run through and do a quick PSD check
✧ If you're new to Live2D, you can use this as a guide on what to work on next when rigging

This is my Ko-fi page!

✧ Find assets that I've made in the shop!
✧ Assets are Free/PWYW!
✧ Read the description in the asset pages for terms of use
✧ You may also support me here by sending me a coffee!
✧ (May consider opening up Ko-fi memberships in the future? Brainstorming perks atm!)

Commission Information

⚠️ Please read through my TOS and information in the following pages! ⚠️
I do NOT respond to inquiries that fail to acknowledge my TOS and basic commission information.

Terms of Service

Not following TOS & not taking the time to understand my process may result in dropping the commission, the refusal to continue doing business with the client, and, depending on the severity, the potential blocking/blacklisting of the client.

  1. By commissioning me, you, the client agree to abide by these terms.

  2. Do not claim my work as your own. Please credit me as @Fafrotsky if you are actively using works that I made or rigged!

  3. Do not reproduce or redistribute my work (reselling) without my permission (this includes minting/selling the commissioned work for NFTs.). Please contact me beforehand if you plan to resell works that I have worked on or have been involved in.

  4. Personal/Commercial use for artwork will be determined and negotiated upon by a case-by-case basis upon applying. Do not use personal work for commercial activities. Commercial use works generally cover content creation/streaming. Artwork commissioned for merchandising purposes will need further discussion and negotiation.

  5. I reserve the right to showcase the commissioned work on my social media & portfolios and to use the work as future samples for commissions.

  6. Commissioned work can be requested to be private for a fee. Commissioned model work requested to be private will not be posted on social media or anywhere public until debut.

  7. I reserve the right to decline or cancel a request at any time if I find the request to be questionable, find the client's behavior and/or credibility to be questionable, if the client doesn't communicate effectively (ghosting), or anything on similar lines.

  8. Refunds only available for works that haven't been started on.

  9. Major editing/revision is limited up to 3 times More edits may require a fee. I will notify the client if the request for adjustment is major. No charge for minor edits, adjustments, or mistakes on my part.

Live2D Specific Terms & Info

  1. The fee for small/medium scale commercial use (such as Twitch Affiliates, Partners, and New/Small Agencies) is included in the commission. If the client wants full unrestricted use of the model and if they are making or intend to make commercially significant revenue, I am open for discussion. Feel free to contact me through DMs or e-mail if there are any questions!

  2. I reserve the right to modify the PSD to make the model art suitable for rigging.

  3. After delivering the near-finished product, a week will be given for the commissioner to test the model and suggest final adjustments/corrections. Further adjustments outside this period will be considered but not be prioritized and may come at a cost. Mistakes on my part will be corrected without a charge.

  4. For the sake of keeping the integrity of my work, I will not provide the project file.

  5. I typically do not do editing work on models rigged by another Live2D modeler (special circumstances may be negotiable, check with me through DMs).

Payment

  • My commission pricing is based on USD (United States dollar).

  • I prefer to take payments through PayPal invoice.

  • I can take payments fully upfront or in parts: 50% down payment upon agreement, 50% on completed delivery.

  • Commissions may also be paid for in steps/segments, i.e.: Sketch > Lineart > Color OR Rigging > Extra Toggles and/or Movement.

  • If a client is selected, I will send them an estimated price breakdown of their model.

  • DO NOT prematurely send payment through any monetary means (Twitch Subs/Bits, Ko-Fi, Tips, etc.).

  • The payment request/invoice will be sent via Paypal to the client's email when the details of the commission are sorted out.

  • Once the payment is confirmed, the client's slot will be locked in.

  • If the client appreciates my service and would like to send a tip, the Paypal invoice has tipping enabled. I also have a Ko-fi page! Tips are very much appreciated!

Turnout

  • Clients will be set up in a queue. Queueing position depends on requested deadlines, available slots, and model art readiness.

  • I will notify clients when I begin to work on their commission.

  • Upon start, commissions take about 2-3 weeks to complete. Please set aside additional time to make space for testing and corrections!

  • A rush order may be negotiated upon which will incur a fee (price depends on time given).

  • Some pieces may take longer depending on my busyness / the model's complexity / model art adjustments on my end or the model artist's end.

  • I will contact clients if there will be expected delays.

  • Clients are welcome to contact me if they would like to check in on progress/scheduling. My public schedule is always available for those that want to check for progress without contacting me.

  • For Live2D models, I am able to send WIP model files for the client to test out and "pilot", but a watermark will be present until the model is fully paid for.

Commissions Home

Status: Closed/Selective

I am closed/selective at the moment! I do not typically accept slots during this period.
However, I am willing to make exceptions and take in slots for projects that appeal to me.
Please browse through the following pages below before sending an inquiry.


Pricing / Quote Calculator

Use this calculator to view pricing & to obtain a rough price estimate.
Note that this calculator mainly factors in base pricing and starting additional costs, plan accordingly.
(Click on the "Faf Commissions Calculator Condensed" banner if the embed doesn't load.)

If nothing appears to load, Calconic may be experiencing traffic or is down.
I recommend to wait for the calculator to load in 1-5 minutes. If that doesn't work, refresh the page periodically.

Process & FAQ

Commission Process

Step 1: Have a ready to rig PSD on hand. Alternatively, have designs/WIPs to share

If you are in the early stages of the model making process, it'll be difficult to gauge interest and ability to rig your model, though you are still free to apply and share your design, designated model artist, and/or WIP model art screenshots. For a better likelihood of being selected, I recommend referring to this guide first and sharing it with your artist. Model art that has proper art separation/void filling is highly preferred.
As of now I do not offer doing model art for Live2D, I am considering opening extremely limited slots in the future to mutuals, returning clients, or highly appealing designs.

Step 2: Read my TOS and agree to the terms

Please read through the TOS thoroughly, breach of TOS will result in the refusal to do business with the client and potential blacklisting.

Step 3: Read the rest of the information on my site: check my Schedule, Process/FAQ, Prices, Portfolio

Determine if the information presented fits your schedule, budget, and style. Have a deadline for model delivery in mind, remember to consider that testing/revisions will be done after the model is delivered as well.

Step 4: Apply through the form on the Commissions Home Page when public commissions open

Keep an eye out on my twitter for public commissions opening announcements/information.If my public commissions are closed, the link to the form will not be present. However, inquiries for future commissions/projects are still welcome (though I will be more selective and slots may not be as readily available), Read through the Inquiries section to learn more.

Step 5: Wait for the public commissions applications to close, check for acceptance

Once my commissions officially close, I will put an announcement tweet out on twitter. Check your DMs to see if you are accepted, I do not send personal rejection messages for my public commissions openings.If you are accepted, I will notify you through Twitter DMs (or email). I'll provide a rough price estimate, let you know if I will need any additional PSD revisions or further breakdown of details, and list your set work dates (estimated time that I will work on and complete your model).

Step 6: If the model PSD requires more cutting & separation:

I will move forward with the commisison so long as the client agrees with following through the possible options:A. I will do the cutting at a charge. This option will give me more control over how I want the model cut/separate for my rigging process. This will take some time (1-2 days upon start) but is likely to be be quicker than the back-and-forth time that B may potentially take. Payment is included in the rigging invoice.B. I will provide the artist a personalized cutting guide (overlaid on the PSD) at a lesser charge (writing notes still takes work/time). This option may save on cost (if the artist includes revisions as part of their commissions) and can preserve the style of the original model artist but may run the risk going off schedule. The artist may be busy or may not closely follow the cutting guides as intended, thus leading to some time being spent on going back-and-forth. Payment is separate from & done BEFORE the rigging invoice.

Step 7: Confirm your commission slot

Once pricing, scheduling, and additional arrangements have been agreed upon, I will slot you in the schedule. I will not ask for payment immediately since scheduling can fluctuate. Payment is usually prompted a week to a month before I start work on your commission.

Step 7: Payment confirmation

I will prompt for payment when your slot nears the active queue. If you have decided to change your mind about a commission or need more time, please have the decency to tell me ASAP, doing so at your earliest convenience is preferable but better late than never, I don’t bite! However, complete failure to communicate at this stage may lead to me dropping your slot.

Step 8: Rigging in progress!

Once payment is confirmed, I will put your commission in the active queue and begin work on your model shortly! If your commission isn’t private, I may stream myself working on your model on twitch! You are more than welcome to drop in and give feedback (or just lurk)!

Step 9: Model Delivery & Review Phase

The model will be delivered before or at the requested deadline when the majority of the model is complete. I will upload the files to a Google Drive link for you to download. When the model is delivered, the review/revision period will begin, this usually takes 1-2 weeks.It’s likely that there will be errors in the model that require fixing. I will typically spend a week after model completion to briefly check for any mistakes. Understand that during this phase, the client is encouraged to provide feedback whether it be corrections or minor preferential adjustments. I also recommend checking in with the artist to ensure that layers are properly clipped/rigged as intended.Additional items and/or major revisions (to rigging/PSD setup) may be requested at a charge at this time if you would like to add more (extended head turn angles, expressions, tracking parameters, etc.) to your model.

Step 10: Completion

Once revisions/corrections are made to satisfactory levels, the commission & review period will be considered as complete! Further revisions months past completion will come at a charge (unless there is a critical mistake made on my part).

Post Delivery File Handling

Model files will always be kept up on Google Drive for the client to redownload if needed.
The project file will be backed up on a hard drive & Google Drive cloud storage periodically (every few months).


Commissions FAQ

- Are you open? How do I commission you? Can I ask you a question?
Read through this entire page!
- What are your prices for rigging? / May I inquire about a quote?
See the pricing page for a rough estimate. I do not offer quotes through inquiries unless I am interested in the project. The price of rigging is determined through a case-by-case basis, it is highly dependent on how much rigging work needs to be done.
- Can I have a slot / waitlist slot? / Can I make a reservation?
My commissions are not first come, first serve, but you may apply for a slot / waitlist slot through the form if I am open for commissions. Check the above section for reservations.
- Why haven't you responded to my DM?
Try again, I may have missed it, you can also try @-ing me on Twitter. Though I will deliberately ignore vague DMs going "Hello/Hey/Hi," "Are you open?," "I have a question" (followed by no question), as well as DMs where it is it obvious that the inquirer hasn't carefully read through this site.
- How long will it take for you to reply to an inquiry?
It depends on how busy I am, give it a few days to a week.
- Do you take returning clients?
It is possible for returning clients to come back to upgrade certain aspects of their model, this includes:
Base model editing, added body parts (i.e. you requested your artist to add legs to a halfbody model & want it rigged), alternate outfits, additional expressions/animations/assets.
I try my best to take in returning client requests, however it is highly recommended to reach out to me early if you have plans to avoid scheduling issues. Returning clients are free to contact me through DMs for inquiries or future updates.- How fast are your rush orders and how much do you charge for them?
If scheduling permits, I will pause my active commission and work on your order immediately. How fast depends on my current schedule and what is negotiated upon. The charge is dependent on the urgency of the commission with the rate starting at 1.5%.
- I have a crazy idea, do you do experimental requests?
I may be open to experimental rigging work so long as the client understands that the final outcome may take extra time and may not fully reflect the initial idea.
- Are you open to doing different art styles? / Do you only do anime styled models?
For art: I prefer to draw in my own style. For rigging: I am open to all art styles so long as the PSD is properly set up.
- Do you take Spicy or NSFW requests?
Services for suggestive or mild R18 content may be available depending on the request. I do not take extreme NSFW requests. Client should be of age and aware of their platform's policies regarding attire and sexual content.
- Are there requests that you outright won't take?
I do not take requests where the model art has been traced and/or the design is / has been suspected of heavily referencing existing designs from other characters / IPs or VTubers.
