We are going to hold a VR content award ‘STYLY Avatar Diorama Awards 2019’ co-sponsored by virtual market 3.

We usually use avatars (3D characters) by ourselves, but there is an increasing demand for using avatars for VR artworks.

The keyword for this award is Avatar x VR, and we hope that this will lead to new art expressions, and to the creation of rich artworks.

The theme is ‘‘where your avatar shines the most’.

Judges are ‘muta’, member of the virtual market executive committee and desginer of the original 3D model ‘キッシュ’, and the virtual YouTuber group ‘Omega Sisters’, and we await applications from artists.

※Note regarding creation of the figure

Basically, if the model is a FBX file or VRM file compatible with Unity, we can create a figure. For example, if the model has a cape without thickness created by a single polygon, the creation tool may automatically add thickness to it. Texture parts created by ‘transparent PNG or TIFF’ will not be created perfectly. If the model uses the popular technique to create cheek dyeing with transparent PNG, we many delete it before 3D printing.
