Voting doesnt really feel democratic if there isnt any alternatives.

So I made a version of this possible "OSC-tan".
(http://i229.photobucket.com/albums/ee258/VDaab/osctan1.jpg)
Info so far planned:
Somesort of geek, but not the stereotypical Hikikomori.
More like the home version of a rocket scientist, the type that knows Pi by 30 decimals or so. You get the point.
She got some thick framed glasses to make the geekyness even more obvious. Also some freckles on the nose bridge and bit on the cheeks.
She likes to collect old fountain pens, which she keeps a couple of in her jacket pocket. Pens are important!
Dont know about age, but I'd say somewhere in the mid/late teens maybe? Still student maybe?
But she would be working at evenings/weekends/other time in a nearby Library/antiquary.
Lives in a small appartment that's full of all kind of books, halfmade projects of different kinds. And one hueg metallic archiving drawer that contains all the images uploaded to OSC. Also one old bookshelf made out of dark Oakwood that has the complete Ostan wiki books bound into old leather covers.

She is bound to exact time manners, as in. at 5pm she likes to enjoy a cup of tea with a croissant (she lieks them).

The idea behind this character would be that she would be multitalented, as this forum has lots of people of different talents.

So.. yeah.

now everyone's gonna throw their hat into the ring! i want a piece of this action, dude!

if i'm to pick from the 2, i personally like vondaab's better, no offense. i've always had a soft spot for girls with glasses (i am one, and i find them attractive as well >:] ) and honestly, she seems to be a bit more like most of us here <D (i have small bone structure, but i be horrible dancer. ;_; )

shouldn't this be in the OS-tan thread?

and i think everyone should try to submit before we vote. i was thinking last week about making a site-tan, but then my sick took a turn for the worse ;_;

i'll submit mine tomorrow.

I like color scheme of Rafaelle's design and it is very nicely drawn but lacks the geekiness that an OSC-tan would need. Sadly, 'elegant' is not one of the things that comes into mind for an OSC-tan!

VonDaab's design is adorable and closer to what I imagined an OSC-tan would be like, especially the geek factor and that she's a computer historian!

And of course the crazy personality as suggested by Nejin!

If I were to draw an OSC-tan, she'd resemble VonDaab's design but with the color scheme from Rafaelle's design and her outfit modified for a more offbeat look.

Well, my target was to make a character that symbolizes the ORIGINAL purposes of this forum. Discussion about Os-tans, creating -tans and collecting information about them. NOT random off topicness and 4chan meme spouting.

Post by: IanDanKilmaster on March 25, 2009, 12:57:00 am
Ditto, if the OSC-tan were to be true to the current tone of this forum (rather than the actual function), she would just be some Colors-tan looking character repeatedly ramming her head into a wall :P.

Yes I'm a hypocrite, so hate me.  I'll weigh in on which design I like once all the artists who plan to contribute have done so.  I feel if I say anything now, it might lead some artists into borrowing certain ideas or modeling towards a certain ideal and possibly causing a wee bit of homogeneity leading to monotony.  I'm actually hoping for some natural evolution to kick in here and see some inspired developments.  So yeah, definitely watching this thread...

Come on Von... You can render her better... I know you can...

The purpose of a representative TAN is to make (infacts) to represent the site and attract new users, and make other sites being ENVIOUS of our pretty TAN, and yours is the typical "absolutely not attractive" geek girl with bottle-bottom-sized glass lenses...

Definitevly a no-no...

I know you can make better attractive girls, maybe equipped with rabbit ears.

Post by: CaptBrenden on March 25, 2009, 01:16:01 pm
Actually the purpose of a represenitive tan is to have a tan that represents the sites purpose/intent/personality.  A tan is not an advertising object, its a visual representation of whatever it represents.

In this case, the OSC forums/site was designed to collect anything and everything related to the tans as well as contribute to the fandom with our own creations of fanfics, comics, images, tans, etc.  It is populated by gamers, artists, and otaku.

Von Daabs design, and what I was intending aims for this. Add a file folder over flowing with images to that girl or something of the like and your headed in the right direction.

However, a dancer... I really fail to see how that represents us in any way. I cant exactly say we are elegant or graceful around here, and most of us probobly spend more time online, watching anime, playing games, etc then we do getting up and doing physical activity. Basicly, as cute as the dance design is, it fails to capture the personality/essance of the forums.  

Anyhow, I echo the call for a contest/competition etc for forum members to produce designs for a possible OSC-tan. Ill likely pick up my pencil for it. Being the most senior member still posting on the forums today and an artist I feel obligated to try and make a tan that captures the sites personality.

However, I also think there should also be some collabaration in this endevor rather then a my design vs your design sort of thing.  For insntance, we all create some designs, from those designs members can say what aspects they like or dislike. Then we start round two where members improve upon or modify their designs to better capture these aspects and so on.

Why?  ;012

Because she is crazy and enjoys life... She is a student but she decided to became a dancer...

She dances because she enjoys living and because she like music and being in movement...

She represents the joy of life that represents us all whoever any of us could be...

It is not important being geeks or not, artists or untalented people, men or women, young or elder people.

The important is being ALIVE...

And I noted that many of readers here on OSTAN site just prefer to stay at a window and see the life outside their room...

There are readers who enjoy tans for lulz, readers who look at TANS beacuse they are pretty and people who look at TANS as beautiful unreal girls because they not sensed that real life is beautiful-  

I hope that my OS-TAN sketch girl could be choosen as site representative as she is a little (but serious) attempt to indicate people to enjoy life and let them decide to being awake, stay active and get the courage and the power to change things in real world...

I think that you are more talented than you believe...

Be creative...

A geek girl with enormous lens glasses is not the best that you can draw.

Exit the normal routine...

Make the girl out of the normal schemes and make her again suitable for represent OSTAN Site, even if at a very first sight she could not being considered fitting our community stereotypes...

Try more ideas... Fore example your design is good but try to making her a pretty young girl BUT again geeky with glasses.

I mean... try to draw again the first sketch but give her a different age...

This will lead to a new different aspect and lead to new ideas!

The one you drawn is too elder to wear glasses. At that age girls prefer far better to choose for contact lenses...

And girls prefer to hide that they are geeky to avoid being excluded in groups of people...

I'm puzzled of your idea about "creativity".

QuoteA geek girl with enormous lens glasses is not the best that you can draw.

Okay, I cant take it that it wasnt the most original design. But that's a starting point. Point is that I wouldnt alone design the whole character. I'm expecting other people join the discussion with ideas and suggestions. So that the OSC-tan would be something made by everyone.

QuoteMake the girl out of the normal schemes and make her again suitable for represent OSTAN Site, even if at a very first sight she could not being considered fitting our community stereotypes...

So you're pretty straightforwadly telling me to scrap the old idea without any real reason and make something completely different? Okay, can do.

Okay Mr. fashion, I dont know where you live, or I dont know if you know of a place called "Outdoors". It might be a bit scary place at first, but when you get used to the fresh air and daylight, you might notice how people REALLY dress.

Lawl, so my sketch is done nao. I spent 30 minutes asking myself and my drawing skills "HOW DID I DRAWED BREASTS?" and finally settled on the fact that it's better that it looks feminine than not (seeing as I can't emphasize that well without them, lawl).

Scan and ink after dinner.

Post by: CaptBrenden on March 25, 2009, 03:17:13 pm
No offence, but I still fail to see how that has anything whatsoever to do with the forum. This isnt a forum dedicated to the enjoyment of life, its a forum dedicated to net created anime characters, characters related to computers and only geeks and otaku can truely appriciate them.

speaking of capturing the personality of websites:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d46AhUP8Oxg&feature=channel
i loled.


Oh and I happen to like my glasses and take pride in my geekiness.  If people cant handle my geekatude they aren't they type of people I want to assiciate myself with anyways.  When I make my brief peek out my window at life every day (before quickly returning to the darkness where my computer sits) I see people young and old wearing glasses, I hardly think that glasses are only for the young.

Anyhow, Im with vondaab about the sandboxing thing.  I suppose thats more what i was intending anyhow, collaborative works rather then everyone compeating to get their idea picked.

I wear glasses too and I'm a proud geek! And to those that don't like it, well that just too bad! Pride in geekiness!

A collaboration effort would be better in the spirit of OSC anyways. I'll try to contribute something.

Hey, 4chan was there...I remember...or maybe that was in the "Internet Intervention" one, but there sure was a 4chan. And some. I dunno.
Also, rectangular glasses gives you a +4 INT attribute bonus. Round ones gives +10 MOE points, and square ones make you able to choose the "Class Representative" prestige class...
...lawl.

ANYWAYS
This took a while, but here's my contribution.

Took a glance at VDB's version, added Ahoge-horn of supreme doom, removed glasses, added slack clothing. Then I added zippers, made them slightly less slacky, busted her up and gave her...a mouse.

Because that's one of the two things we use the most around here, lawl.

ANYWAYS SUP FIRST CONTRIBUTION IN OVER A YEAR GO ME!

Only thing is though that thick glasses are out... I have a -4,-4 perscription and the lenses in my glasses are about 4mm thick...

So the glasses can stay as far as i'm concerned...

And, ooh... toss in a necktie... girls look so much better in a necktie... ^_^ Shirt (as one you'd wear under a tux) with some sort of blouse to make it casual and then a necktie to top it off...... ;010

So I did some sketches. Note 'sketches', as at the moment the design ideas are more important than drawing quality.

Idea #2:
Maid type osc-tan. You know, the one that serves all site content.

Idea #3:
Casual fangirl type osc-tan. Self explained.

And a remake.

but there'a a crapload going on considering these damn deadlines so don't rely on me too much right now.

and also, just cuase i have fancy CG program nao doesn't mena i have time to use it. >___< (i payed so much for it too!! i waited for years for this!! *weeps in corner* ) so she'll probably be coloured in pencil.

Nope...

Just the fact I know almost women and their behaviour and perhaps as amatter of fashion the best part of girls in Italy at a certain age drop their glasses and prefer far better to use lenses, or use glasses only to read...

Quote
Only thing is though that thick glasses are out... I have a -4,-4 perscription and the lenses in my glasses are about 4mm thick...


Well the Von Daab design makes me feel strange because in these days there was a VERY VERY GEEK GIRL, named Arisa who won the Italian Music National Festival and sure she is the not the ugliest girl I ever seen, but she makes very few to change her look... And perhaps for a curious point of view the first Von Daab design matches her in a certain way...

I just pointed that singer (Arisa) as an example of definitely no-no look...

I wonder if she is so horrible that stylists in Music Competition Award were uncapable to make her look better, or perhaps if she presents herself so  horrible in order to gain more sympathy from the judges...

(I sure bet that she used that strategy of present herself as little ugly geek with glasses to gain more votes)...

So therefore I'll make another sketchy. Expect upload by tomorrow.


And hey guys, if we don't want to make this a solo show - those of you who have ideas but don't want to draw, SIMPLY POST THEM UP. eg. like svx said, "Give her cat ears, miniskirt and hueg bottle o' booze". So in spirit of that statement I will now draw an OSC-tan with cat ears, miniskirt and bottles of booze. Rawr. Phear me when I am tired, for my limiters are asleep. >:3

gah, i sorry, kimono and yes.
von daab i love yours but does this site have alot of memory? huge tits?

here's mine......not that great. i did 4:
(http://i70.photobucket.com/albums/i98/Chocofreak13/collections1.jpg)
first (and only one currently in color)
age: late teens, early 20's (looks young, loli lawl xD )
hair: burgendy (note the ME-style cowlick)
eyes: haven't decided yet, any ideas?
profession: college student/artist

rarely leaves house, reason for slippers. lives with dog (and spyware program) scotty. younger (and more intelligent) sister of 4chan-kun.
cute at first glance, but sarcastic and firey and passionate and nerdy. spends most of her time at the computer.

(http://i70.photobucket.com/albums/i98/Chocofreak13/collections23.jpg)
2 and 3. didn't put too much into these, 2 is basically the same as one, but a tad more "grown-up". 3 is just the opposite: a scruffy little street kid who still survives, despite the odds. (go us! go little site! go! )
2:
age: 20's
hair: burgendy
eyes:??
profession: college student

3:
age: 8-10
hair: brown
eyes: green?
profession: street urchin/pack leader

(http://i70.photobucket.com/albums/i98/Chocofreak13/collections4.jpg)

4 is one of the better ones, i put some thought into her.
she wears a kimono (japanese element of the os-tans), but has blonde hair (most of us are of european desent, (sp?) and the site itself is hosted in france)
her hairstyle is based off nejin's. xD
and the kimono is a golden color w/ blue-green obi (based off the kimono i'm making right now)

I'm not really sure how much server space OSC requires, but I think it is some. Not that I'd really decide it by that.
It's to get some "attractiveness" points by Raffaels standards.


Does the character really need the "randomness"?
I mean, we're not 4chan.

#1 is pretty much made from the same Geek basis thats been discussed here?
Spyware dog huh? Why's that?
#4 is sort of generic, nothing really stands out in that design.

Here's my design:

(http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b342/CaptainMiko/OS-tans/OSCtansketch1.jpg)

She wears a jacket like in Nejin's design but her jacket has a seifuku collar to it. I really liked the floppy disk motif on VonDaab's schoolgirl design so I added that in. I tried to give her sort of a funky + geek-chic look to her design.

Personality-wise, I think OSC-tan is hyper and prone to randomness but is very geeky. She is highly knowledgeable about computers from repairing them to knowing a lot about computer history. She's also an OS-tan historian and anthropologist, keeping several volumes of information related to the OS-tans.

Post by: NejinOniwa on March 28, 2009, 03:28:16 pm
So, I never got around to drawing that yesterday...this morning...whatever. So I did it now instead. As I was randomly browsing around for shit I also found something really useful: 50 Expressions (http://piro.sakura.ne.jp/pics/mon/50expressions.jpg). Pretty useful for a not-quite-expert-level sketcher like myself (i finally stopped doing those huegass stupid-looking eyes. Man.) if you're looking for something to use as reference material.

ANYWAY HERE IT EES:
(http://i57.photobucket.com/albums/g239/NejinOniwa/OS-Tans/OSC-Tan_booze.png)

Anyway, the Osc floppy is a damn sure-kill technique, so I copypaste'd. (not really but yeah). And I was too lazy to draw her legs so I hid them under a table. Which I hid under a tablecloth. And there weren't any cat ears...she did get some weirdo whatever-hair things. AND LOTS OF BOOZE. Some is consumed already, which I hope you can see.

No editing because my family causes a damn blackout here for Earth Hour.

It would appear that we're (and maybe Raffael and Capt-sama) the only ones who think that shouldn't be incorporated into the design, but I guess randomness here is like rape in prison - fight all you want but someone will make it happen.

So that aside, I do like the recent crop of designs.  I know you want some specifics, but I'd rather wait until we're closer to some prototype to offer design ideas.  The variety continues... good!

On Randomness, I'd like you to remember that an OSC-tan should be created with the state of our site in mind...

Seeing as the amount of material and posts dedicated to what's actually this site's main purpose (the monitoring, creation and discussion about OS-Tans and such), is dwarfed so much out of proportion by things dedicated to entirely different things, be they on-topic in their respective thread or not, she definitely deserves some sort of randomness trait. It might not be the flippy-yippe-OT-time kind of randomness (not only that, at least) but something in that direction - for example, a habit to doze off and/or getting easily distracted.

von daab's 1st and 3rd,
nejin's coat idea
aurora's design
and the floppy motif that has been passed around.

i say 4chan sould be involved because like it or not, there were born of 4chan and MUGEN. ignoring that is like ignoring 1.0-tan and the other vintage-tans!

as for the randomness, denying the fact that we're random is a blatent lie. look around!! you can't find a single topic that hasn't gone off topic at least once!

This is on topic, we're discussing what should or should not be a part of the design, and while I do think the idea is cute, I don't think it represents the forum.  Instead it makes things appear as if we're another of those 4chan knockoff boards, and as OT as we get here, I don't think that's the case.  On the other hand, this board has evolved beyond the realm of OS-tans and yes even those topics find a way to go OT, so I think it's difficult to avoid incorporating those ideas altogether.  I just think it's important to keep in mind, we are OSC... not something else.

Anyway, I did draw a -tan based on the things that Smokey an Nej were discussing earlier, but it's more of a joke than anything else.

Now obviously there are some problems here.  First, and most importantly, what the hell does this have to do with OSC?  Admittedly, very little, I just wanted to draw a -tan in a schoolgirl uniform.  Second, like my other drawings, this one is unfinished in a number of ways because I'm lazy.  So this is largely drawing off of my comment from earlier likening an OSC-tan based off of the randomness to a -tan just repeatedly ramming her head into a wall.  Then, Smokey just had to make the comment about ADD to which Nej replied "What man in his right mind gives his creation a mental disorder?", it was a question that just begged for an answer... so I gave it :P.  It's bad, I know -__-;.

I have no time in these days so I relized just a few modifications to my old characters:

1)

I merged Marika + Chrissie in a single character named Marie-Christine:

Pardon the bad file, I just sketched her on a checkered notebook and I have no time to work on her:

http://ostan-collections.net/imeeji/displayimage.php?album=196&pos=2

(http://ostan-collections.net/imeeji/albums/userpics/11145/normal_MarieChristine1_reduced.jpg)

As many persons believe that Chrissie was was too young (Smokey for example)...

Quote from: "Smokey"really young, though...


...then I realized a mix of Marika + Chrissie (Christine) and named her from the two previous girls.

...(but Is Chrissie 13 so that young?)


She took features from both previous girls:

Age: 17

Computer Genius

Ph.D. in Computer Science


2)

Also the 30 of march (it was sunday) I had some inspiration and I realized a very intersting sketch of the couple OSTAN + OSKUN.

I think that both character are very very interesting for an on-line comic of my own, so I wonder if to keep it for myself and not to donate them to the site (or at least leave the rights to OSTAN-Collection Site to publish them with no copyrights fees)...

And also I think that it is sure your right to see them even if reduced, shrinked and with no details about their look (Sorry pals):

(http://ostan-collections.net/imeeji/albums/userpics/11145/OSTAN_Candidate2_RAF_reduced.jpg)

But do not forget the fact that in non-christian cultures, the cross it is just a sort of jewel design as any other...

And sometimes the cross could be a very elegant element of dressing...

Look at Misato Katsuragi from Evangelion:

Title: Proposal for Our site Official TAN
Post by: IanDanKilmaster on April 01, 2009, 01:27:43 pm
I should probably point out there are different styles of crosses as well, and there are particular styles one can easily identify as religious symbols.  My own knowledge consists of Celtic Crosses, Iron Crosses, Latin Crosses, Inverted Latin Crosses, Greek Crosses, Ankhs, St. Anthony's Crosses, High Crosses, St. Andrew's Crosses, Maltese Crosses, Sun Crosses, Calvary Crosses, Patriarchal Crosses, and Crucifixes.  Typically the symbol most associated with Christianity is the Latin Cross - the same style of cross upon which their messiah was crucified.  It is so much a symbol associated with the religion that the Inverted Latin Cross is instantly associated with Satanism or some other evil, despite the fact that Peter, another religious figure from the Bible, was crucified on such a cross.  While each of these crosses are pretty much somehow related to religion (mainly Catholicism), the Greek Cross (more or less the style Misato wears) isn't so readily associated with religion.

In any case, I do not really understand why the -tan should be young but meh...

Well, there are four pages of designs if you haven't already checked them out, but if you're asking if anything has been settled on, the answer is no, at least, not yet.  What's really cool about this is we've had submissions from numerous people, some who, as far as I know, haven't posted art anywhere else on this forum.  So it seems this topic has been a real shot in the arm in terms of forum involvement.  Sadly, we still have yet to see a submission from Capt-sama (though she has announced her intentions to do so) or Toki (who has probably had trouble getting internet access again, so who knows if she'll get her chance).  Anyway, I'm looking forward to the progress in this forum, so if you'd like to submit a design, dive right in.  Since we haven't really settled on any aspects of the design, feel free to do whatever (as long as you can relate it to OSC).

So are we soon going to get drawings of the forum members, in sailor bob outfits or something?

In these days that I didn't access OSTAN site luckily I had some spare time and I devolped better the design and some aspects of Chrissie (Chrissie alone and not Marika and not mixed character of Marie-Christine) OSTAN Candidate...

I plan to develop also the mixed character Marie-Christine because it is interesting, but I also think that the characters who have the maximum growth potential are Chrissie and OSTAN+OSKUN.

Here it is Chrissie at work wondering why the computer machine she is examining is gonna faulty:

yes, give us new stuff.


did i mention my idea? i feel like i did, but i can't remember, so i'll say it (again? )

we should gather everyone together, and have everyone post ideas for clothing, skin, hair, eyes, ect. then have everyone do a rendition (even the stick-figure renderers). that way, everyone inputs, and it's democratic and fair. or at least communist and fair.

Whoa... that... possible?

Eh, anyways, personally I'm bit confused about the direction of this project right now...
Choco's sort of correct with the fact that we should try making one candidate that would be a mixture of everyone's opinons. Though, the drawback with that is that the character might become SLIGHTLY too random...
Which then doesnt really fit some people of this forum.

Her name is Mariko, she is a Computer Kunoichi (Female Ninja) Super Operator.

(http://ostan-collections.net/imeeji/albums/userpics/11145/normal_Mariko_2.jpg)

She operates computers and has the capabitility to transform herself in an Electronic Ninja who analize and correct errors of the Operating System she is operating.

She can fight viruses and trojans with virtual ninja weapons and can also navigate the web as a virtual character with just her ENORMOUS brain power.

(I can also draw her with glasses if you want her looking geeky...)

Well, I think the general consensus is that we would like designs from every artist in the forum, so we might be waiting awhile.  I highly doubt that we'll be arriving at any decision regarding the design anytime soon.

Sure I hope that C-Chan could return this forum with a creation of his own...

He declared he leaved, but I am sure he is lurking here...

The "moveset" thing is a "Pokémon" reference. It is too bad that C-Chan has left OSC for good and Bella probably did too :(

At least I see them everyday on DeviantART. BTW, C-Chan didn't abandon his interests, he's still very interested in the OS-tans but is seeking to expand his ambitions with interactive content and of course you know where to find him on DA!

Well, I think we should at least wait on Capt-sama and Toki since they've both stated an interest in making their own designs.  In the meantime, we should just chill because it wouldn't be fair for us to place a restriction on them if either of them have something personal to deal with.

Quote from: "Aurora Borealis"The "moveset" thing is a "Pokémon" reference. It is too bad that C-Chan has left OSC for good and Bella probably did too


I'm still completely clueless on that one.  Piggy-sempai left just as I was regaining my footing (for the third time, admittedly -__-; ). and then Bella-san was around for awhile after that and vanished.  WTH?!

On a sort of plus side, I felt compelled to compensate as a result.  Too bad my drawings are awful and have nothing to do with OSC (except for that last ADDOSC-tan - which was just me being a goon).

Donmai, Choco, you're earning your way up the ladder, n00bs don't survive very long in this forum (they're usually berated to self-b&), and I think the fact you're still here demonstrates how you've grown on us.  This doesn't mean you get a free pass if you do something n00bish, but I think you should understand by now that you've been accepted.

Now GTFO! :P

Who are the senior members anyway?  With the exception of Capt-sama and Fedora-dono, I thought they were all gone...

Well, I don't keep in contact with Capt-sama outside the forum, so I wouldn't know where she is fO__o.  I guess if she wanted us to know she'd have one of the forum members she does chat with relay a message if she couldn't tell us herself.  I can only guess that she's been really busy with her artwork in preparation for the various cons she's attending.  Other than that *shrugs*...

We should get back on topic - feel free to contribute more, Choco.  You are welcomed...

everyone else i've had little or no contact with, so i can't judge.
if i was to spew out a few more, dr. mario? icelilly? seamore?

i'd add to the competition, but right now i'm a bit tapped out for creativity @__@; 2 classes are screaming for my creative attention right now, and i have a couple side projects to worry about, and all that stuff i still need to finish for my old pottery class, ect ect.

Wow... you're still working on this OSC mascot? I thought you might have chosen one by now. I went through some pages and saw some interesting and fitting designs, including that girlie with the pink hair.

Well... if people seems like wanting to wait for others to post their ideas... I guess we can go for it. But rather than a competition, couldn't t be some other way?

I mean, we can use the things that are similar between most/all of the characters as the "common standard" (is that even a term?) for the final character. At least then we could call it... the uberOSCmascotCHARACTERofTHEpeople'sPWNINGideas... lol

So what you think?

Well, that seems to be the idea many of us are going for (Nej, Choco, myself, and others), but I don't think it's an idea that has found unanimous approval.  Still the reason why I'd like to wait is so we can get concepts from everyone, so we can each be a part of this in some capacity.  Other than preventing death/OT, I don't see why there's such a rush to finish this, but I have noticed we have numerous designs so perhaps we should consider moving forward.
