Ciel Sekaine Full Ref (color update) +VB LINK by Pianodream Ciel Sekaine Full Ref (color update) +VB LINK by Pianodream
EDIT (22/12/13): updated the ref sheet with a better colorization and added link to wiki page.

Here is the final full color reference for Ciel Sekaine. (UTAU) Along with the associated voicebank release!!

His/Her release video for the 4VCV + CVVC voicebank is HERE: www.youtube.com/watch?v=vPu3SH… PLEASE CHECK IT OUT!!
(please read the video description for the looooong list of the voicebank contents uvu)

Lineart commissioned from :iconsteelemissary: (go checkhim out and commission him, that's an ORDER) uvu
Colorization made by me on SAI.

Time: 6 hours at least for the color. Lineart I don't remember... it took Steel around 4 hours from sketch to final?

CIEL SEKAINE (c) PIANODREAM - me
ART (c) STEELEMISSARY + PIANODREAM

Ciel's Wiki page for all informations about the character!: utau.wikidot.com/utau:ciel-sek…

(note: this colorization is so bad it looks like it's been painted by a drunk Steel. Rly.)

Can you teach me how to make a Utat voicebank? Mines always come out weird or skipping.

What is your exact problem? "weird" or "skipping" is a bit vague of a description.
If the sound is weird, then you might want to check the quality of your microphone/recording, the format of your samples, as well as your pronounciation, and 'skipping' is most likely a problem with the OTO.ini file of your voicebank.
You need to configure it properly no matter if your voicebank is CV/VCV/CVVC.

Maybe that's why.
I been watch tutorials online but not a lot told me about the OTO.ini file and CV/VCV/CVVC.
So, maybe that's why it sounded wrong cause I have no idea what it is and how to use it.

There are plenty of tutorials out there, on the UTAForum site, on tumblr and on dA, that can teach you how to OTO your voicebank. Just look them up according to your voicebank type (CV/VCV/CVVC)

Thank you so much. uwu Sorry for being a burden, I was just a bit upset at how when I make a Utatu Voice bank, it sounded weird and I didn't know what to do to fix it.

Ahaha!
No, they're just genderless. Meaning their "gender" is up to the user's decision, and both pronouns he/she are acceptable.
They have a male CV bank and a female 4vcvvc bank for technical utau talk.

I use mainly "he/him" out of habit and because they canonically use their male voice as "default" for speaking (and female for singing) but they're REALLY genderless. Their physical appearance is supposed to take equally from both genders, and they canonically don't have gender-related secondary sexual characters (like breasts).

It's okay to ask the question! Thank you! ;v;)/

"Ciel" is french, for "sky, heavens". And zhe named hirself after travelling a lot through the world, hence "sekai ne" , sound of the world.

Oh okay ^^ sorry for being such an idiot. I knew that Ciel is not Japanese, I only got confused because of 'Sekaine'. Thank you very much for explaining it to me :)

Anything is fine to Ciel. It's up to the user to call them a lady or a gentleman.
