    This is a thread to mark how far our utsu children have come >:D what they used to look like, to what they currently do.

    For enxample, my utau was designed by me and should not have been because her old design is gross asf?

    THE BOOBAGE. And now, thanks to Cine (and everyone else who participated in her contest) she looks much nicer

    Oh my holy nuts XDD

    Well, my first UTAU, Toka Aki's, design has changes to most over time, so I show him :'D

    Ok, I made a first VB (that didn't have awful FRQ errors) in 2013 October and design, well, *cough* I liked back in those times Len and Oliver a lot and like all famous UTAU back then were mostly Character Voice (Miku, Rin/Len, Luka) inspired and as beginner, I didn't know how to design (human) character, so...

    [​IMG]

    Ok, and this is his 2014 design (holy heck, way better and previous one)

    [​IMG]

    IDK if this 2015 design is counted cuz my friend designed it but I put it here anyway

    [​IMG]

    And I'm type of person, who like to design multiple design for own character, so his "Append" design has improved over time too (but I think to post them in different post to avoid having "too many media in one post")
    --- Double Post Merged, Jan 10, 2017 ---
    And here is the "evolution" of Aki's Append etc designs

    In back 2014
    [​IMG]
    And now 2017
    [​IMG]

    And his "Finnish" design

    A 2013 design for his CV Finnish is lost (LOL) but good: it was AWFUL and the design itself was nothing to do with Finland XDDD

    2014-2015(?) design
    [​IMG]

    And final design for his Finnish VCV VB which I made in 2016

    [​IMG]

    + There are few random design that I never really used (for example his "ACT3" design and "Chinese" one but I'm too lazy to post them lel)

    All of mine changed drastically. Like I'm shook. (also I just have point A to point B not all the in between because this would be a tad too long to format ^^')

    I made Saisei back in 2011, and it was... well, I got her desired color scheme at the very least.
    [​IMG]

    And then I updated her for ACT 3 and it was still... I don't know why I didn't like it really.
    [​IMG]

    The idea was supposedly to make her look like she's incomplete. But she looked more like an empty husk than anything. Come 2016 and I finally figure out why. Apparently the expression made the huge difference (along with letting go of socks). Her redesign was a mix of her original + her initial ACT 3 outfit.

    I remember copypasting her hair alot in this one because i was lazy.:uhm:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    In short: she rode a giant fish, chased her paperface in the country's celebration, turned into some wierd half human animal thing with a hooded electric dress, then lost her paperface, the tail, alot of her hair and both legs.
    What a journey:holy:!

    Tree has only had 3 designs, but the second one had NO essence of the original one except the hair, which has stayed the same style from the beginning.( http://www.utaforum.net/posts/103979/ ) The first one is the newest, the second is his original, and the third is his 2nd design (wow that was confusing lol)

    My design hasn't really changed, just very tiny things have either been replaced or added.
    My first design concept for the bank actually came way before the release which was over a year later : 'D
    [​IMG] That bad art tho...ew

    Based the design on what I normally wear but with slight twists

    [​IMG] updated the art and I kept it fairly the same, the hat no longer glowed, and the shoes kept changing somehow


    still ugly

    [​IMG] Updated again, and still, god awful.
    Changed shoes, removed microphone, added the bunny

    [​IMG] This was an alternate casual design o u o9, again based on how I dress.

    [​IMG] weeee not so ugly, shoe's kinda changed

    [​IMG] alternate art gives bunny ears o u o9

    And that's kinda it : 'D

    When I was first coming up with Trilli's design, her original color scheme was going to be a yellow-skinned, (tastefully- she was originally intended to be more like a wild alien than anything) unclothed creature with black hair and pink eyes. In this design, she also went back and forth between having a tail and where this tail would be located. I can't find my 10th grade sketchbook for some awful reason, so I don't have any drawings I can show. I think the first drawing of Trilli that even remotely looked like her was also in the same sketchbook, so I can't show that either; I think she had a shorter skirt in that illustration.

    [​IMG]

    Trilli's first official art is not very different from her current design. Most of her design changes were relatively tiny details: Her bangs were changed, her skirt was given more poof, and got rid of that box and those awful boots. In addition, while I don't usually illustrate this, it's canon for her to have a mouth on her stomach.

    -deep inhale- Hhhhokay...Iris's first design...first let me just say that in my defense nobody stopped me nor complained about this design between the years of 2011 and 2015 okay?? Nobody. Not a soul, at least to my face, ever gave me so much as a hint that her design was bleh.

    That said...there were also no complaints about the art I'm getting ready to show you. Actually, it was praised a couple of times. I'm really sorry for what I'm about to show you guys...so...just...

    [​IMG]

    Please give your eyeballs an adequate amount of time to heal. Anyway...jokes aside Iris's first design was my attempt at just barely making the Crypton-loid design cliches my own at the time and...I am 90% sure that flower on her shoulder never got drawn again???????

    That design(not the art thankfully) survived for four whole years. Four. It took me four years to finally redesign her into this:

    [​IMG]

    I drew that last year but the design is from 2015. As you can see, along the way I finally learned how to draw lmao Her current design is an outfit that I think fits her much more nicely and is way more unique than the last one. Probably cause I wasn't actively trying to mimic someone else. I couldn't help but keep her simple green flower through the ages though that's just the staple of her design -nod-

    She also has an English design done by my friend Kay that I like but it hasn't changed at all(ya know...cause I like it) so it's not very relevant to this thread.
    ====================

    tl;dr - While other people re-design their children all the time and gradually over the years, my girl and I somehow managed to hold on to the same exact design for 4/5 of our years here now(4/4 at the time of her redesign lol). Nobody objected to it though so how bad could our presence have really been~
