How to Vtubing?
Do you want to make your own Avatars like these?
In this stage, we can start with collecting ideas for your avatar, there're many avatars online already, like character development, you need to consider trait, habit, the background story of your character, the reason to do this is to let your audience have more chance to like your avatar!
Model your Avatar
In phase 2, some people don't have the skill to use any 3D Software, for those who know Maya, Blender, and other 3d software, will be easier for them to create their own character; For those who first get in this field will recommend using VRoid Studio
to create their own avatar!
For me, I used Blender to complete this task because I want more freedom on my character, remember to use blendeshape to create your facial expression, no need to add skeleton on the face, if you're Vroid user, you don't need to worry about it, but the downside is you'll only have default facial expression.
Export to .Vrm format
There're so many Vtuber softwares on the market now, you can see this video
for more information, but one thing you should keep in mind is most of softwares target to 3D vtuber model need you to convert your avatar to .vmr format, you can do that with unity 3D!

Additionally, If you want to put it into VRchat world, please go download VRchat SDK to upload you own avatar.

example, I'll use Luppet as my platform to display my Avatar!
Unfortunately, Luppet is not a free software to use, but the UI is very friendly, you just need to open your .vrm file through this app, and remember to install your webcam, then you're good to go!
