New Official Xin Hua Artwork
First, now up on Gynoid’s free downloads page are a pair of new official artwork for Xin Hua Japanese, which were drawn by the artist 推奨幻想 (Suisougensou). Unlike the box art design for Xin Hua Japanese (which is a recoloring of Xin Hua V3‘s design by VOFAN, and was previously used for her Cubase AI bundle pack), these new illustrations are all-original, and clad Xin Hua in an adorable new outfit. However, it retains enough elements from her original design – such as her twin tails, beret, and lifeline-like hairpiece – to still make her instantly recognizable as Xin Hua.
Like all other content distributed on Gynoid’s downloads page, these new illustrations are free to use for any non-commercial purpose. Those who wish to use them for commercial purposes must get permission from Gynoid.
Furthermore, Gynoid has stated that new illustrations like these will be released monthly as free material for VOCALOID creators to use in their songs and videos.
