nizima Material posting campaign

Submit your themed material work and get an Amazon gift certificate!

A material work is a work that is not used by itself, but is designed to be used as part of a work, such as a background, direction, or accessory.

If you think it’s too hard to create a solid Live2D model, why not start with a single small material?

Please log in to nizima and join us.

Theme of this time

“Items for VTubers”

We are looking for items that can be used in our face-tracking software for VTubers, nizima LIVE!

In addition to animated and still items using sequentially numbered png/jpeg/gif, Live2D items can also be used in nizima LIVE.


From standard items such as glasses and chemomimi, to hand materials and small items that could be used in distribution, to unique items that make use of your ideas, we are waiting for wonderful materials to color your VTuber!


Note: Illustrations, sequentially numbered illustrations, gifs, or Live2D are all welcome to participate, as long as they are works for sale.
Please refer to the nizima LIVE item specifications page for detailed information on how to create an item.
