Hatsune Miku Symphony: 5th Anniversary Ver.—I've taken the liberty of calling her "Gramophone Miku" in my head—started out as an idea from the Hatsune Miku Symphony 2019 key visual illustration.
Did you notice that in the background of that illustration of all of the Piapro characters, there's an old gramophone?
The idea of "Gramophone Miku" came from a rough sketch I made when I was researching how to draw that particular gramophone.
Here is that rough sketch.
This idea really stuck in my mind, and I thought it would be nice to have a chance to use it someday. Through a few strokes of fortune, it became the main visual illustration for Hatsune Miku Symphony ~5th Anniversary~ at Suntory Hall—and to see her transformed into a scale figure on top of that? I am simply overjoyed.
I think the most difficult part of the modeling process was capturing the gradation of the hair and the gold colors. Since Gramophone Miku was designed with only a few colors, it was necessary to achieve a perfect balance of harmony between those few colors, which proved to be extremely difficult. After asking the paintwork artist to make a number of revisions, the final result turned out to be absolutely magnificent.
Additionally, Miku's eyes are closed in the the original key visual, but Good Smile Company came up with the idea to make a version with her eyes open. After a lot of back-and-forth communication, we were able to create one more expression that I was satisfied with.
I would like to express my deepest gratitude to the sculptor, paintwork artist and the creative planning staff involved in the production of this figure.
