Dagnammit, you couldn't have done this before I went through the trouble of creating Concoctions...?!  ^0^

Oh well,... a little to late for the multi-page thread artists, but maybe it can still catch-up.  -.-

Announcing my Freespire/Linspire 4koma, Beta 2:

technicly I drew her way to big, but the picture looked cuter that way.
Title: FREE COOKIES!
Post by: C-Chan on April 11, 2007, 07:34:04 am
Sou sou, now that you think about it, she should be smaller still.  But the Rozen Maiden "pintedness" was never really big with me, so i'd rather see her that size.  ^__^

Oh, and although it's not my drawing, it is my translation so....

Reposting this just to plump up this fledging art thread AQAP.  -v-

So will you be posting your manga here too, Thurosis?  Â¬.¬
Just keeping tabs of who will or will not post here, since a general art thread DOES help consolidate everyone's efforts.

OMG ! Did I missunderstand something or said something wrong again !?  ;015

I said that i won't post my manga here because we would have a second "Thurosis"-manga-thread!
But if you want that i post some of my (other) arts here, C-Chan/Capt. Brenden, I would do that!

However, Ill note that I may have beat you two it Thurosis, Ive been idly sketching on a follow up comic where I find out what that doohicky is and run off to bring 3.1sama and Sugintou to life ^_^ or you could draw it, its your manga

*adds checkmark before SleepyD*

Cool,... you've got ONE enlistee, so this need not be just YOUR art thread anymore.  -v-

[BTW SleepyD, since I'm no longer in the contest, please fight hard for /C-chan....  -.-]

Although with a topic title like that, how could blame the csual visitor from running away in terror.....  ^___^

[e.g., OMG!!!!!!!!!!  Anyones looks pissed in all CAPS, and is gonna jump out of the thread and rip my lungs out!!!  NOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! *runs away in terror*]

So yeah, if you want people here, lose the CAPS, add the apostrophe, or better yet come up with something more marketable that would get people stampeding to post here.   Otherwise, they might as well stay "holed up" (you make it sound like they're inpillboxes.... -v-)

Course, some of these personal threads have been around for illenia, and were already very considerate efforts to avoid creating multiple threads to begin with (Infinity Zero's consolidated art thread is a good example).  So I'm not sure if even a mace/sword/whatever wielding bloke's gonna pry them away from their homes.  -.-

On the other hand, perhaps an incentive might help,... like allowing them to REPOST all their pictures from their threads here.  That way, you'd very quickly turn this 1-page thread into a 50-pager, and give them everythign they need as well to relocate.  It's all about the planning.  -v-

BTW, how much would you charge me to brining Suiseiseki-sama to life?  -.-'

I assume you are one of those armored guards in your latest 3.1-tan picture?

Anyways, excellent sketches! 3.1-tan and Suigintou look beautiful and majestic and the armored guards and weapons are very detailed (and definently look like people I sure do NOT want to mess with if I value my life!)! ;010

C-Chan's Linspire+Freespire 4koma in progress looks very good too (even I don't understand what's supposed to be going on but still... I like it!)

Amazing Amazing Capt.Brenden !!! XD XD XD  ;010

I thought the same! I mean I have the same idea! XDXDXD

I because i want to make a Grey Knights-Bodyguard(s) for 3.1-sama! in my Manga! hehehe...

and in the manga you will betray the God-Emperor from Warhammer 40k. because of 3.1-sama!
Title: FREE COOKIES!
Post by: CaptBrenden on April 13, 2007, 06:02:43 pm
Betray the emperor? NEVER!  As the perfect being and emperor of mankind, he will surely recognize her as the perfect woman and make her the queen of man kind  T_T so saggest betraying him, Im ashamed of you.

I drew blood angels in that picture because I havent really drawn grey knight before and I couldnt think what they looked like exactly off the top of my head, as where ive drawn blood angels hundereds of times.


however, just a side thought... the gothic lolita style that both gin-chan and 3.1sama have fit perfectly with the team of 40k.

oh and while we are on the subject.. as capt B used to look before I became a grey knights player (beign a bunch of blood crazed vampires is cool, but being holy knights that slay demons is so much cooler..)  

(http://ostan-collections.net/imeeji/albums/userpics/10255/brenden.jpg)

regular space marines are a hell of alot easier to draw tho..
and they are off to fight in her name!  
(http://ostan-collections.net/imeeji/albums/userpics/10255/brenden2.jpg)


and on an unrelated note:  a t shirt I drew for work.  I wonder if this is proof im not suited to drawing cute romance comedy comics -_-?

Right now in my opinion all your Arts with Space Marines, 3.1sama and Suigintou SUPER COOL and AMAZING ! XD

the problem is that everyone have his/her own opinion!

all of them -_- said they looked too... western, not cute

i have to say i kinda agree, my art so far is more suited for serios western style comics

Post by: Thurosis on April 13, 2007, 07:10:26 pm
In my opinion i don't care in which style a manga, comic or a pic is drawn aslong it has a interesting story!

I must learn it by myslef too that I can't compare my art style to other art styles!
Every artist draw in his/her own good way!  

i anyhow (sorry if it is the wrong word) like your Art style!

Currently in a place where the DNS link to this site is still screwy and I can't view your sketches, but will do say later.

But just wanted to ask you who the hell told you that?  O_o

Can't be anyone from this forum because as far as I'm concerned we pretty much respect different art styles,... if anything, I think the majority of art criticisms per capita come from you.  -v-

But whoever said that about your thing probably has a particular bias on what's considered cute and probably can't appreciate detailed artwork -- in other words, "if it's not loli, it sucks" kind of assessment.  ^^;

Hope you just mentioned that for the sake of mentioning it, cause it doesn't sound like a comment that's even worth your time paying attention to.  -v-

I seem to recall coming to people defence when harsh critizisum came down T_T  like aroura when someone started bashing her style.  I bet your just refering to the "i prefer not to short cut" comments.  thats a discusion of art philosiphy not about bashing peoples individual work
Title: FREE COOKIES!
Post by: C-Chan on April 13, 2007, 11:01:16 pm
I'm here to help you, not make you cry more, so don't get me citing examples now.  -v-

Besides, whoever said art style and art philosphy were too separate things -- without the willingness to understand predicaments, making fun of someone shortcutting when you're physically able to do these things the old-fashioned way can be just as fan as deriding someone using stencils and tin cans to eek out an existence, when you're the one with the computer and copic markers.  -v-

Don't forget I'm not an artist, so I have a pretty hefty handicap to begin with and little patience to deal with crap.  So can I help you, or just go back to what I was doing?  -__-

Sorry for having OS/2-san deprive you of some much needed sleep.  But still, she's looking absolutely wonderful!  ^__^

You've been really good at making dynamic shots, and this one is bound to be leaps and bounds ahead of your last one (which was also fantastic, btw).  ^v^

and thank you muchly! ^^ Nothing like a good comment to keep someone working. hehe :3
but yeah, it took forever to get that angle and shot right... even still I think there might be something wrong with it... ^^;
(but the last time I kept correcting and correcting, I ended up hating it and never finishing it, so I'm keeping myself from doing that hehe)

Nice. Looks like someone got attached to a certain C-Chan character :D

Hoe!  That is a very gorgeous pic, and really displays the phenomenal level of skillz that you showed me when making the OS/2-tan pic!  ^__^

(Speaking of which, that offering came with a very HUGE pool of C-chan points, so it's gonna be decades before you start hitting the negative range.)  ^v^'

I know you've done an excellent job with faces before, but this one is spot-on and pleasant.  Hair is well-stranded and flowing, and the clothing (and folds thereof) comes as sharp and well-defined, yet with appropriately gentle shading.  (It almost looks, btw, like she's trying to artificially prop up her chest to be more XP-like... ^^;)

The colored linework does take some getting used to, but it does help soften the palette and make the overall picture quite pleasing to look at.  

This could easily be at home alongside AIR or Kanon (or name your favorite high-quality anime), and would find it inexcusable if this attracted even the least bit of heat from those darn imageboards.  `v'

And talking about linework, an alternate edition with black linework (messed around with levels):

I even played around with photoshop to give you a fancy background. :3

wasn't sure where to put this, but since I'm not asking for an extension or anything I'm not posting in the contest thread, and I don't want this to be buried in the Topicless Thread, so I'll post it here:

I won't be making the contest deadline due to family stuffs... and as a result I did not have the drive to complete my wallpaper.  My grandmother in the Philippines died... I have a journal post on dA about it if you'd care to read it:

http://sleepydoodler.deviantart.com/journal/13158834/

So, I've unexpectedly and suddenly taken up a few more responsibilities around the house as a result.  

Rest assured, I will finish the wallpaper, just not in time for the contest.  Good luck to the rest of ya. ^^

I did resume working on it yesterday, and I'm playing around with different shading methods...

great MP3 players, I dare to say.

Been on the works for 1 month (more than 3/4 of that month weren't actually occupied for working on this...I blame videogames and lazyness). Rushed it at the end because I REALLY wanted to finish it (or else, it'd go into the "hiatus" folder...no picture has ever made it out of that folder)

Gradients mostly, solid cell shade and some airbrush.
Her legs are made like that in purpose. I doubt she can stand on her own (just like the device she represents...>_> )

Open to critics, may actually modify the pic if necessary. Specially, I'd like to have opinions on the color. Dunno if the colors are too saturated.

I think the color's fine! :D

This is rushed? I think this has been given a lot of work around 1 month! Maybe you were planning to add more shading or a decent background. But as far as her looks, she seems fine. The suit is surely simply smooth but cool thing is that how you made the "Sony" logo at that size so as her button at her waistline. :D

...also the boots had the same color as her hair. Good job on that one not to mention you made the boots smoothly done and unique! Love those boots! :P

Just a quick 5 min sketch. Generic pose (don't have the imagination for more right now...). Need to check eyes size, head tilt, draw a proper left hand, give a proper end to the right hand, check overall anatomy of the body, etc.

Yeah.

Ah yes,... "Malinchista".  ^.^

Fufu... just kidding,... ^v^
Strangely enough, the Nijiura version does have an uncanny resemblance to Frida, who if I recalled also made a very brief cameo appearance on that board (though not sure if prior to or after Nijiura-version appeared)...... ¬¬

Yeah, I like her too,... In fact, she'd be the only Vistan I'd vouch for an official version, if not for the fact I think she's way too nice and sweet.  -v-

Someone more bigoted and short-fused would fit the bill better.... ^v^

So...here it goes: Vis-tan drawing alpha version .02 :

Just a quick 5 min sketch. Generic pose (don't have the imagination for more right now...). Need to check eyes size, head tilt, draw a proper left hand, give a proper end to the right hand, check overall anatomy of the body, etc.

Yeah.
ETA: 3 weeks -2 monts/forever. Taking into account that uni is about to start.


Well no complaints here,... I reckon I admire a person who can sketch a nearly-complete character in 5 minutes.  ^__^
And the characteristic feathered "ears" of the Nijiura version invites swoonage.  ^__~

But what's this I heard before about hands somewhere else?  `v'

actually yeah, Frida and Nijiura Vis-tan are very similar in looks. I think Frida was first. Maybe the ponytails were based on Frida's design (or a reference of "longhorn")

What's so bad about her being nice and sweet? It actually represents Windows Vista accurately. Though, I would add her a touch of Yandere.
Yah. You don't want to make her angry. Much like 95-tan.

and I didn't wanted to post this because this was unfinished, but a certain post from a certain SOMEONE forced me to post it...

That's the thought that occurred to me.  Despite all the rantings and ravings of certain lunatics elsewhere, art can permeate in reverse if given the chance.  -v-

Although now that you think about it, we're all technically "malinchistas" since we're so fascinated with another culture's products.  ^____^;

Well technically speaking you can. ^__^
Every time you pick up a pen and draw the glyphs we call "words" on a piece of paper, you're essentially "drawing" writing.  ^v^

And if you can be trained to "draw" an entire alphabet (maybe 2 or 3), then you can certainly learn to "draw" more complicated imagery, such as Anime cel-style drawing.  ^__^

Always bear in mind,....

If an elephant can create art with its trunk:

(http://www.chiangmai-chiangrai.com/images/elephant_art.gif)

http://www.elephantart.com/catalog/splash.php

... you can easily create such things with your much more dexterous hands!  ^v^

Now if coordinate positioning and proportions are a problem for you (as it is for me), then computer vector graphics can assist you with that as well.  

Ultimately, though, it all boils down to how much faith you have in yourself to achieve a goal.  If it's non-existent, then yeah there's no point cause you'll have failed before even starting.  -.-

But if it's really something you want to try, then by all means try it.  We'll be here to help!  ^__^

nope
Actually, after I scan the drawing I have to retrace it in Photoshop in order to obtain a clean linework...so there's no use in wasting time inking the original.

Drawings phases:
1) Sketch on paper using pencil
2) Refined drawing on paper using pencil
3) Scan drawing
4) Digital Linework (digintal inking..): Trace over the scanned pic.
5) Color

Well...As long as you want to, you can always draw. It's just about practice.

I started drawing anime (in fact, humans) 2 and a half year ago [more or less] , and while I'm still far from being an expert, I have improved a lot.

So, yeah, you can also draw as long as you have the desire to do so  ;010

4 and 5 take forever. >->
speaking of which.... OS/2 is stalled at step 5.

sorry guys. ^^ Calculus seems to be taking up more time than expected.


Actual inking is pretty fun, but I still can't get it to look right. I use Sakura Microns and Sharpie if I somehow decide to ink with pen. ^^

I don't know about you, but things look better when I start big and then shrink it. In any case, it's best to have the original to play around with, right?

disregard my previous Vis-tan sketch. This is the new version:

this is getting right into Photoshop. Maybe some corrections about the hair, but other than that I don't spot any serious mistakes. So feel free to post some critique.
Adding future lazyness, uni work and exams, expect this to be finished by early December :D

also, something unrelated to OS-tans:

So I have been watching School Days
this is Kotonoha when she snaps at the end of episode 6. Well, not really, she hasn't turned in a serial killer as far as episode 7. But knitting needles could be awesome weapons.

Fastest drawing ever. Like 12 hours along 3 days. *fast*. Not really something serious, just did it for fun. There was no quality/QUALITY control for this drawing, so it's not surprise if there are mistakes...
I think the best part of this is the yarn :D

Oh dear me, not the start of another Anime character craze, is this?  I was hoping youz guys would settle with Kagami-chan.  ^___^;

In any event, the chibi is uber cute here too, even if I don't know who she is (and yes the ball of yarn is superbly rendered).  ^v^;
My only gripe is that the eyes are both dark and have no highlights, so it kinda looks like I'm staring into black holes.  However, I'm assuming this is a style match with the actual Anime drawing technique used for these characters,... OR, this is just a part of that psychotic snap you say she gets.  ^.^

Either way, fantastic work, and more importantly,......... YOU DID IT QUICKLY!!!!!!!!!  ^V^

But Kagami doesn't has a sad story like Kotonoha...
Kotonoha really deserves support :)
Also, don't worry. I think I'm the only one on this forums who likes School Days, so you won't be seeing Kotonohaiism signatures everywhere...unfortunately....

Also, yes,  the eyes without shine are actually the sign that she snapped into *knitting* mode. Yanderes, gotta love'em

+Nijiura+ Vis-tan > Vistake.
Now we only need an interesting personality for her.

lol gradients. Forget solid shading, gradients are the future! But they cause the .PSD to be 75mb heavy...
IMHO, this one surpasses anything else I have done before. Could have been done better, but right now I have no idea of how. Generic pose, etc.
I had no idea of what kind of background I should use, so I just stole the Aurora default wallpaper from Windows Vista :D

Critique encouraged, etc. I'm eager to fix/add things.

Could it be that maybe that so-called piedrada filled you up with motivation?  If so, I better think of some more!  ^.^

She reminds me a lot of your 95-tan submission, so i reckon you used a lot of the same lineart techniques.  Her feather thingies have a remarkable translucent glow that really compliments the background gorgeously.  Don't know what you mean about gradients being the future since everything still looks like your trademark soft shading, but I assume you mean what you did with her hair.  If so, it really looks good with the background as well.  (and I guess,... um,... "Go! Gradients!" ...and stuff...) ^.^'

However,........... I do have two MAJOR critiques that are SO grave and SOOOOO damning.... >0<... that you'll feel compelled to crawl underneath a rock in SHAAAAAAME!  ^0^

1)  You don't have this loaded up at the Gallery yet!  >0<

*checks ++*

HA!!!!!!  YOU SEE!!!!!!!!!!  NO DARKNIGHT VISTAN!!!!!!  >v<

You drive her home this instant, young man, and post her up for mom and pop to judge accordingly!!!  ^v^

I think it looks good enough to post there anyway.

Although in fairness, while this is not exactly a critique as much as a possible addition, I should probably point out that your lovely gradient-bearing hair is uniformly colored throughout,... hence, it kinda looks like her body is not casting any shadows over it.  Then again, it hardly detracts from the beauty, and besides one could also make the argument that, A) her hair is flowing outward slightly, hence the light is able to slip in and bathe it in glorious mellow colors, or B) her hair is self-luminiscent to begin with.  I go for the latter since it's inherently "Aero"-like.  -v-

Well...aside the "pedrada", the lack of online gaming and the end of the first period of exams may have influenced in the "strikingly fast" end of this (lol, 1 month since the final sketch) . I miss my Internets ;_;

And the gradients...well, it may not look like it, but every shadow was made entirely by the gradient tool. No "fill path" was used in the creation of this, except in the base colors and lineart. The same shading techniques as with 95-tan, but used on a larger scale. Indeed, I used again colored lineart. Both gradient shading and lineart color weren't used in Gamma-tan (some gradients, but not on a large scale) and Kotonoha.

and...my bad, how come I forgot to shade the hair?! F'g LOL
Fix'd version:
(http://img154.imageshack.us/img154/9839/vistan30aurorabgxv6.jpg)
added a highlight, but dunno If I should remove it, since it's the only place where it fits. Adding highlights in other parts looks awful.
Any more thoughts?

Aha!  So that explains it.  ^__^
Well, guess it's a nice trade-off.  ^.^

No silly games and evil exams, in exchange for boundless art growth potential (and also time to watch your Anime backlog, if applicable).  Heck, I wouldn't mind trading places with you if only I had something comparable for you to have fun with.  -v-

And the gradients...well, it may not look like it, but every shadow was made entirely by the gradient tool. No "fill path" was used in the creation of this, except in the base colors and lineart. The same shading techniques as with 95-tan, but used on a larger scale. Indeed, I used again colored lineart. Both gradient shading and lineart color weren't used in Gamma-tan (some gradients, but not on a large scale) and Kotonoha.


Fufufu... in that case, you know what this means, eh?  ^___^
You're only a stone-throw away from Inkscape territory.  -v-

and...my bad, how come I forgot to shade the hair?! F'g LOL
Fix'd version:


Awwww,... I was getting into the whole luminiscent hair explanation.  But oh well, winnage has increased an extra 10% as a result, so it looks great.  ^__^

Quote
added a highlight, but dunno If I should remove it, since it's the only place where it fits. Adding highlights in other parts looks awful.
Any more thoughts?


Nope, retain since it enhances the "Anime" feel.  I figured you wanted a strictly "soft" look, so didn't mention anything about that before.  -.-

As for adding highlights in other parts,.... I dunno, I think some smaller ones would look really nice in her pigtails.  Because of the luminiscent feathers and all.  ^^

Consider experimenting on her armlet, transparent clothing and any metallic parts,... I think you'd be surprised by the results.  ^^

Quote
And I know no Japanese...
But yeah, I think this fits more into +Nijiura+, given the fact that they're the ones who gave birth to her...


Cobarde!  ^v^
*cluck cluck cluck*

Well okay, it's a valid concern, but it's not like you couldn't just pull any generic Japanese greeting phrase off Google, then post it up along with Vistan.  ^^

Or you can hook up with Alfamille-san,... he might be able to arrange something for ya.  ^v^

Well, she's supposed to be crossing her legs (walking?). But since I never drew the legs due to lazyness (and they didn't fit in the piece of paper anyway), there may be some balance issues >_>

Well, the "bulky" version seems like it has a seat in the middle, and it's used for transport. I guess it transforms in some light combat form (as the Viru-tan vs Vis-tan pic shows).

And I'll quote myself
Quote

At the moment I have no plans to draw Mac OSX-tans, but the idea isn't discarded.

but note that the statement "the idea isn't discarded"  doesn't specifies when. But I can assure you that it won't be on 2007 :D. I have planned at least 1 more Vis-tan drawing and 1 or 2 95-tan drawings :D.

Although, another NG Evangelist parody would be a nice idea...

And for the right palm.... It looks... small? flat? I dunno...  I'll come back to it.

Otherwise, I think you're ok.  Pupils make me think they're tilted a little bit too much... maybe just her right pupil...

New hands. not still too sure about the left one, but I think it looks a bit better than the previous one. I will see If it works once I shade it. If not, I'll change it again. Same with the right one, although now that I look at the .png, I should've made the palm a bit larger. Or the pinky a bit smaller.
Eyes less tilted, but maybe too large...?

looking better!

I'll withhold critiquing the eyes, since I'm starting to think it's a style issue. ^^ If it looks off when you color it, I'll tell ya. XD; When I first saw it I thought she looked cross eyed... after imagining where the skin and the whites of her eyes would be, it felt better.... if that makes sense. haha....

Her right hand now looks correct to me now. ^^ you can tweak the size how you want, but I think you're on the right track.  Pinky might be a bit large... then again, it could depend on how you color/shade it.

Now for left hand.
Left palm looks perfect to me.  now just gotta tweak those stubborn little fingers. XD; I mess around a lot with hands myself... spend hours sometimes trying to get it right.
At this point I'll leave it up to you, but maybe the thumb should either curl up around the weapon or stretch out alongside the bottom of it. Holding a pole weapon with the thumb like that seems unnatural to me, but what do I know about pole weapons? XD;;
...I'm not exactly sure how to go about the rest of the fingers... how about trying to make the pinky smaller, just showing the last third? (since it is short, and most of its length would be going around the pole) And maybe showing more of the middle and ring fingers?

...play around with it if you want. I suck at hands too, and I seem to only get it right by just messing around really. XD;

when you straighten your shirt you're usually pulling on it. So I'd think that line, (between her hands, just above the skirt) should be a lot more straight.  

Furthermore, like darknight said, it should be pinched. You can do it the way darknight suggested, by pinching it between two fingers or by making it look like she's gripping something smaller.  i.e. her hand would look like she's gripping a pencil, and cloth would be coming out from a small area (more wrinkles from there of course)

In both cases, we're reducing the amount of "stuff" in her hand. By pinching, there can only be so much between two fingers.  By gripping it tightly, you create the same effect by "compressing" the cloth.

Hmmmmm.... a bit removed from J-kun's Gentoo-tan and the guys might say a thing or two about the arms, but the design is very cool and I do like your prop-work and draping detail.  ^__^

Her spear is too Linux-like.  Needs more bloat.  ^____^

Nah, just kidding.  -v-

Well here's a thing,... for her transparent skirt thingie, you know how we can see the front and back of the left portion, but can only see the front of the right portion?  Is that intentional (camera angle?), or do you still need to draw a hint that the thingie wraps around her leg?  '__'

Also, I recall it's made out of very glossy plastic, no?  so I would recommend at least adding a small sliver of pure white to complete the gloss effect (both on her skirt and on her plastic armlets).  You're the artist here, so I don't need to tell you where.  -v-

Other than the fact that she's no OSX, it's lookin' good.  ^__^
More importantly, you did it very quickly again, so that's reason enough to celebrate!  At this rate, you'll be rolling out Tiger-sama before the holidays!  ^v^

Well, I think the rear skirt thingy not showing in the right side it's more of an issue of camera angle. Actually I tried to make it appear in the first stages of sketch, but I didn't liked how it looked. Tried once again now and failed miserably >_>

Added some more white, but not a lot, since I'm trying to keep it along the same style as the previous vis-tan drawing.

I had way too many ideas, and it looked ugly when they were all in one picture. XD So, all my ideas were split into 3 and simplified.  So it's not as flashy as my last one, but I still like it. ^^

Okaaay, explanation.
The default background of OS/2 WARP is employed in the first two.  I also used three particular colors.  Converting "OS/2 WARP" into hexadecimal, I got three colors.  These colors were employed in all of them, although with all the filters and stuff I did, I doubt you can find them. XD; And of course, the WARP logo is in the second.


Edit: whoops, I seem to have forgotten to do something in the pic....
ah, but I'm too lazy to fix it. ^^;;;;

Excellent work, SleepyD!!!!!!!!  ^v^
I knew you the Master Backgrounder could not let us down!!  ^.^
The dynamism in all three is certainly a welcomed change of pace from the boring gradient I had up.  ^__^

The only thing that does seem odd is the pixelation in the phaser's light arc, although I imagine (like with my pixelated background for the C64-Amiga pic) that this was an intentional reference to OS/2's color modes.

Of the three,.....

*ponders*

I'd have to say the Second one is my favorite.  ^__^
The First is pretty original, but a shadow is missed.  The Third has a great shadow, but the plain white is a bit too simple (perhaps if it had the same kind of mini square pattern, only much lighter, the texture alone would give it interest).

When I look at the second one, I think of her as running down a glass corridor, ready to kick some major butt.  ^___^

Course the real test will be to see how the Great OS/2 User Achain thinks of them.  ^___^
(although sadly, he uses 16:10 ratio wallpapers.... ^.^;)

well, i still have a few ideas festering in me brain, but those will take a LOT of time, and I don't really have that time. ^^;;  

I whipped these up in about 2-3 hours. When I was playing around with turning on and off layers, I got to the third one, and thought it would be a nice, simple wallpaper. ^^ (I prefer simplicity in my walls)

Hence the split into three.  My original was way too chaotic for my taste. Maybe I'll use the second one as a base next time. ^^

well, if you'll excuse me, I have to do some physics/calculus and then program something with linked lists.

Actually, I wanted to contribute since the beginning of 2007, but due to distractions and work I never materialized something. Don't know if it's too late now, but I'll keep supporting her.

      -Gradients (restricted in area using the Pen tool's "Make selection" option)
-Gaussian blur filter (again, restricted with "make selection" option)
-smudge tool @ 50% (not much, but it helps to blend colors and vanish edges when gradients and gaussian blur fail).

No offense, but the first one creeped me out a bit (I think I have to agree with 2k-tan's reaction!) ;)

The second sketches are really cute, though, and I'd love to see either colored! Both poses are perfect for XP-san, and I really like the way you drew her face. Though, being so close to those ducks, you make me wonder if she's scouting out some delicious lunch ^_^

Work in progress.  Ive been plaing with manga studio Debut and ive just about got the program figured out. I loves it.  This is the first time Ive drawn something ENTIRELY on the computer.  Not a single pencil or peice of paper was harmed in the making of this picture.

Its going to be completed in 2 forms probobly, a color form and a manga screen tone form.  Its was a doodle practicing drawing when it started to turn out okay, a background got added and next thing you know it was a full promo poster.

Completed the line work.  Now it needs color and comic screen tone versions.  I had to redraw her lower portion from what was on the original sketch (for reasons undisclosed)  but it kinda ruined how her hands are positioned, but i didnt know what to do with them, so shes kinda pulling up on her dress.. fidgeting?  The floor tiles turned out wonderfully for how little work was involved.  when they get colored/toned they will be a checker board patten.  The whole thing was drawn with a tablet without the aid of automatic line drawing/adjusting tools such as photoshops "pen" tool, or readjusting a drawn line like in Flash.  I did use digital rulers on the floor tiles tho... However it didnt draw the line for me, it just gave me a ruler edge to guide my pen stroke.  Awsome tool I must say.  I should make a Manga studio tutorial after i finish figuring out the rest of the process, but its a very powerful usefull tool indeed.

your not the only one to say it tho -_- I may need to change that before i get into the tone work too far... not sure what to do with her hands since i wont be able to move the arms..

Edit:

FIXED.  She no longer is akwardly holding her dress which some people thought looked like... well never mind what it looked like, its fixed now. Now she is holding a quickly drawn but detailed rose. Im happy with the change exept that her left hand looks a bit big =_=  Still far better then the original. I also cut the print guide off this version to save on screen space.

Added after 6 hours 29 minutes:

UPDATE:

Ive finaly figured out most of the ins and outs of tone placement.. tho it will take more practice to get good at it and pick up the advanced techniques ive at least figured out how to paste them in the program.

Nice-o!  ^__^
I always reckoned that watercolor would be particularly difficult to work with, since it's hard to fix mistakes and the color can potentially "bleed" out of its intended positioning.  Still, your detail in the Inu-T watch if relatively razor-sharp,... especially if that was your first go at it.  I have a an issue with Inu-T's eyes, but everything else about her (head size, hair, body, arms, accessories, shading) is done with remarkable precision and the watch is also brilliantly crafted (no pun intended).

The second girl, however, is downright perfect through-and-through, and looks no different than using colored pencils or chalk.  
Because this took extra effort to do, I have to label these as brilliant!!  Remarkable masterpieces!!  ^___^

Unfortunately, her name escapes me at the moment and I've lost the location of your older characters (though I do recall BarCode-tan).  Perhaps NOW would be a good time to revisit the User Gallery thing, since you desperately need one.  '__'

Humm pretty good Id say,  and a drastic improvement between the two, you picked it up fast.  Inu-T looks as you said.. a first attempt, as where the watch or the second picture definitly look like someone that as least understands the concepts.  

Great use of shade I must say, very good indeed.  I especialy like how the pink hair and fur bits turned out.  I would saggest maybe picking out the lines on her again with maybe a extream fine point felt tip pen or the like.. the dull light grey of the pencil just detracts from it somehow.. Especialy on the flesh parts such as the cleavage or her thighs.  That or maybe get a brush with a fine tip and paint the lines, but that wouldnt do so well for say the leather straps holding that otfit togeather... You could also just make the contrasts darker,  like putting a very dark line of flesh tone in the deepest parts of the cleavage or where the thighs cross.

For landscapes or backgrounds using color breaks and contrasts is fine,infact perfered,  but for an anime-esk drawing such as that,  the lines should be more defined IMO.  

Other then that Id say its a pretty good job,  far better then I can do with water color.

Wut? Watercolors come in tubes!?
I used block colors.

Pencil water colors? Never heard of those.

"washing" the shade colors is such a pain, the brown color was incredibly difficult to controll and try get it into an smooth gradient.
I don't like the fact that the colors aren't "permanent".

tube is best, and the pencils draw just like color pencils exept you go back over them with water to spread the color.  Seriously, get tube water colors and try those out. easier to mix, use, etc.   youll need a little paint tray tho, a pallet wont work.

I suppose I should posit the question again:  Is this your very first go with acrylics, or have you had experience with it in the past?  

If the the former, then I'd like to see how you progress after becoming a little more comfortable and experienced with the medium.

I wouldn't call it a "mess" since you have a knack for capturing general form and lighting well in your characters despite the medium used.  However, based on just these two pictures (and the disclaimer that I have never handled acrylics even once) it does seem like the richer color and extra photorealism is a trade-off for the clarity and finesse of the watercolor images.

On the other hand, maybe another question I should be asking is which medium is  faster to work with so far?

Not really, used some acrylics in school for few paintings in school, but that was 2years ago.

Quote from: "C-Chan"

Took me about 4hours to do that second thing.
Both mediums are equally slow, acrylics have the advantage of better control of the paint, still it can be thinned with water like watercolors.
Good/bad side of the acrylics are that when it's dry, it cannot be used anymore, same goes with the paint you got on your palette, means that you got to choose your colors wisely.
Acrylics are much thicker when used straight from the tube, brushes tend to take damage from "hard brushwork".

Now I said earlier that I may not be able to do it due to the dawning of my semi-retirement.  However,... I think you underestimate my interest in drawing my Chiivistan pic, if only because of two reasons:

1)  It's mainly to showcase EeePC-tan, Cloudbook-tan, Classmate-tan and OLPC-tan.

2)  It's.... how shall I say this,.... well,...... hmmm..... to the kind of..... person of my.......... special interests............. the pic............... is something akin............ to...... um........... *cough cough* erotica *cough hack cough*.  ^o^;

So i guess if I have the right push.... AND I treat myself to turning up the "heat" a little........... then yeah, I would love to draw it.  ^______________^

I agree, but I wouldn't want to be killed by one. XD;  The do look pretty cool (and crazy) when they're holding their weapon of choice. :3


===========
Well, I was going off topic in the what anime are you watching thread....
I wasn't sure whether to put this in the Guns thread or this one, but since it is about art, i guess I can put it here....
so here's all the relevant posts:

Quote from: "SleepyD"

....
Someone give me tips on how to properly draw guns. I don't think I can do a good gunslinger girl fanart without doing at least a semi-decent job on that.

Quote from: "CaptBrenden"
perspective and research my friend, perspective and research.  Research the weapon first, get as many pictures of it as possible from differnt angles etc.. then draw your characther, rough box where the weapon should be to its approximate size (remember, they are little girls so the guns will be oversized compaired to most examples IE: the FN-P90 is about as wide as my chest, but on henrietta it looked alot bigger)  once you get a rough box laid out, use what ever perspective method you think will work best for you (probobly 2 point)  and draw away!  after that its a matter of coloring or shading it in whatever style you plan to do..

Quote from: "SleepyD"

Most pictures just have the weapon just sitting there.  And yes, they serve their purpose in showing me the visual details.  But I need to find videos of the guns too.  The P90 and a few others I can find easily, but I have ideas that capture the girls in the middle of reloading or with shell casings falling all over the place. heck, my ideas involving guns aren't just limited to the gunslinger girls.... *sigh* now if only I had the time... >_<

Quote from: "CaptBrenden"
Well there is a more pricy alternitive... get some good airsoft weapons and have someone pose.. or the alternitive.. get real guns for reference and have someone hold them/pose.

Maybe I could slap togeather a quick tutorial on gun drawing...

But anyhow at the very least, if you havent, go to a range and fire a gun for a bit. Familurize yourself with a gun and how it operates.  Artists often draw from personal knowlage and a little first hand knowlage would do you some good.


Added after 7 minutes:

Excuse the double post, but if you wanted to quote me, I'll save you the few seconds it takes to erase it yourself. :3

Edit: well, I didn't realize that double posting combined your posts. haha... A nifty piece of code there...
=================

Keep in mind though, I don't have very much time, given my area of study. And I have a feeling that the nearest range here isn't so near.
ah.... california. XD;

I may go to a range eventually, but I don't think I'll be able to in the near future.  
So for now, I'll have to rely on the internet.  

A small tutorial would actually be nice, if you have the time.  There aren't many tutorials out there for artists about guns.  The How to Draw Manga book regarding guns, is basically just a collection of drawings with a few blurbs about how a couple parts of the thing functions.  Didn't help me too much.

Quote from: "SleepyD"
all what sleepyD said


Guns are indeed very hard to draw, not only to get it look like it should and the correct size, it is very hard to get the character to hold the gun in a proper and comfortable way. Drawing someone aiming with a gun in a proper way is even harder. I know I have tried... orz.

So what would be the gun you are planning to draw?

Here's some of my attempts on gun drawings.
Note that they both have a common problem, I've pretty much got the basic looks of the guns but they both got really wrong "anatomy" like the really thick barrel and some other really wrong stuff.
And perspective problems.

Srsly, there is no such thing as "natural born artists".
Maybe in fairytales, but not in the real world.

People who you would categorize as "natural born artists" have more likely been motivated to draw at an young age, or have the passion and inspiration to work hard on improving.
Altough, fast learning is a very important fact, still it doesnt make the person a "natural born artists".

This is often shortened to "Cthulhu fhtagn", which might possibly mean "Cthulhu waits", "Cthulhu dreams" or "Cthulhu waits dreaming" [size=0]Quoted from Wiki[/size]

If I remember right, there is a webcomic featurin The Great Old One, and he used to say Fhtagn randomly.

After some intensive research(5seconds of google). I've come to a point where just the word "Fhtagn" would mean "dreams," "sleeps," or "waits."

In the end, Cthu-tan is not my idea. It's originally from Nijiura or Futaba or some other similar site. I just stumbled upon it some years ago and remembered it again couple of days ago when I was having a conversation about Cthulhu.

Here's a fresh scan of some skeches from couple of days ago. Funny, this person who I was talking with about Cthulhu, he's really into all the occult and horror stuff but when I showed him these sketches, he just replied:
"-Now that's scary"

Well, I didn't start from that...

It was first in the age of 15 that I realized that to get good in drawing, It would require much more practice than just occasional doodling.
When I drew that one, i think i was 16 or something. Still, I'm a lazy person, so my progress in drawing is pretty slow.

This isn't pixelart, even if id put every pixel individually on its place, this still wouldn't count as pixelart, just ask DevianTart.
Only because this is Animu, this cant be classified as pixelart.

Hey guys. With all due respect, do you think you could quit with the NSFW things? I don't want to seem rude, but the sysadmin at my work has been going through my logfiles and is somewhat mad at me now. I might not post a lot anymore (gomen nasai) but I often check the site while I wait for things to compile. If the sysadmin decides to block the site I wouldn't be able to check much, as I really don't have any free time anymore.
I really don't want to be rude, but please keep NSFW things off-site or in the Hentai section.

(http://a79.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images01/32/l_b2eee073c4b56bad5c551296faa3cd46.png)

Still working on the tone.. need to re do the lines on the skirt, i tried to draw those with a mouse and they are all messed up, tho you can see how im going to achive the plaid pattern with tone.  Im also happy with how the smoke effect turned out, simple yet effective.  I might shave the tone down some so that gradiation pattern isnt uniform to make it look more like billowing smoke.

Alright, so heres some honest feedback:

Trigger finger, looks bit dislocated, too far from the rest of the fingers.
Also, might be a bit too thin for male fingers.

LOL DEAGLE.

TRRIGGUR DISCIPLINE!

The pouch on the right looks a bit too rigid to be made of canvas or some other "soft" textile/material.

I dont know, might be just me but with all the halftoning, the image seems very cluttered and "overtoned".

The angle his feet are in makes me think that hes squatting or something similar.


Its still a very well done piece, I can see that you've put much effort in this one.
Title: FREE COOKIES!
Post by: CaptBrenden on July 10, 2008, 04:54:47 am
:P as I would expect from a fellow artist. "it looks pretty" doesnt help me much.   I agree about the hand thing, I fought with it forever and it still looks wrong...

However.. the Desert Eagle bit.. Please dont call it a deagle.. it sounds somehow... dirty... The character used a Desert Eagle(it replaced Freemans 357 revolver), and thats why I drew him with it. Plus as a Desert Eagle owner, I can personaly say its one of the Finest hand guns Ive ever used.. Counter Strikers can suck the sweat off a dead mans nutsack. (Gawd I hate counter strike.. any game that bills itself as a tactical shooter shouldnt have pulling out your knife and jumping around like an idiot be a legitimate tactic)

As for the over toning.. If I were drawing the frames of a manga yeah Id cut back alot on the tone.. but since this was a full page sized drawing designed to have a great deal of detail I did alot more to it.

anyhow, thanks for the constructive advanced critique

Post by: VonDaab on July 10, 2008, 05:16:08 am
No problem.
Personally I dont like the DE, mostly because of the weird choice for action, bulky appearance and it being a bit of a "gimmick" among guns.

I'd understand a DE in .357 magnum, where you still got some magazine capacity, but the .50AE model... what the hell?

Oh well... have some IS-3-tan with dislocated leg.

Title: FREE COOKIES!
Post by: CaptBrenden on July 10, 2008, 09:22:03 am
Honestly,   do you really need more then 8 shots of .50 AE?  I dont think the action is all that bad personaly (tho I wish It were double action not single.. but hell the 1911 is single action too and its one of the greatest handgun designes ever created).  I find mine to be extreamly acurate and powerful, yes has a fraction of the kick a .50 revolver has due to the way the slide is built.  With the heavy barrel and only the rear portion of the slide going back it remains balanced when firing reducing muzzel jump and recoil dispite its insane round size.   And besides,  the version I have (the MKXIX) I can swap out the barrel and bolt as fast as I can feel strip it and convert it to .357 or .44.  
(http://www.magnumresearch.com/products/DEXIX-Black.jpg)
If you want a magnum, the desert eagle is it.  The only other one Id concider is Smith and Wessons new sheild gun 8 shot 357
(http://www.smith-wesson.com/wcsstore/SmWesson/upload/images/firearms/170292opt.jpg)  tho, the DE still wins in that its got easy to change magazines, as where the model 327 isnt really ment to be reloaded in combat (a sheild man would have a second one in a holster behind his sheild, if he runs of of bullets he drops it and pulls the second)

The DE is in a whole nother class then most handguns, its a specialists weapon. Oh, another perk is its the only semi auto magnums I know off the top of my head, which makes it one of the only ones that its possible to get a silencer and such... Plus the addition of a 10inch barrel and scopes or red dots.. its just an awsome weapon and ill stand by it.

Normaly Id be the first to disown something for being a gimmic or over hyped, but I feel the desert eagle has earned its reputation.

Now back to art discussion...Your pic, putting aside my distaste for strapping hardware to a girl and calling it a tan, looks pretty good. Its been a while since ive seen you do something that wasnt drawn with pixels in paint.  I do think her trigger finger is a tad long tho.  Wrapped around the grip it should still only stick out about a knuckle length and a half then the rest.. But who am I to judge? I cant draw hands for shit most of the time. That and I cant help but feel sorry for her, her breasts being as big as her head and all... I can only imagin how much of a pain that is.
Title: FREE COOKIES!
Post by: VonDaab on July 10, 2008, 06:18:43 pm
Yeah, her trigger finger might be a bit too long. But theres so many other things aswell wrong it that drawin, so...

This whole IS-3 drawing was pretty much improvisation, I had no earlier sketches that I could get some desins from, thus the drawing was ridiculously slow.

I blame the IS-3's thick armor as the reason for the heavy chest.
230mm front-armor is pretty impressive for a WW2 era tank.
Compared to the TigerII that had only 180mm.

Also, Anime + Physics = Kittens die.

EDIT: I dont know if this really counts as "art" because its just a bunch of random sketches, but I hope this will put a smile on your face.

Okay, this peice is a gift art for a friend who got me into Dream Of Doll ( http://www.dreamofdoll.com/ ). It shows one of her characters Felicia-Val (find her on DA here.. http://felicia-val.deviantart.com/ at least untill someone can convice her shes good enough for MR) holding her doll and my manga avatar Evangline with my doll. If you would like to see my actual doll view here here : http://geekygothgirl.deviantart.com/art/Kanako-and-Kay-85758063 Anyhow, I said something to my friend that made her upset and this is sort of a very long in the coming apology.

Okay, some things about the picture.... VonDaab commented on my previous picture that it was too cluttered with all the half tone shading, so for this one I attempted to avoid using tone for shading effects.. the only place where tone was used to shade was on the bushes. Instead I used hatching lines and highlights. I eched the tone on the bushes with a parallel lines ruler on the bushes to create the impression of light shining down. This is also my first real attempt at a proper background. Perspective rulers were used to create the walls and I had to do a bit of research to decide how to draw the trees. The leaves were quite time consuming but I think they turned out wonderfully. I also experimented a little bit with texture and pattern tones on this one, with the stone effect on the wall and plaid pattern on the tie and skirt. Also I dropped a computone background in instead of etching my own clouds like on Unsung Hero of Black Mesa. I also tried to recreate an ocean effect I spotted in a manga with white lines on a falt color tone, but Im not sure Im happy with how it turned out...

Beautiful and brilliant work, Captain! Although you skipped the shading process in that picture, it is still of equally fantastic quality as your other manga-style works!

The background is really nice and maybe I can study from it as well (as I cannot draw trees, bushes, or waves worth ****)

I checked the Dream of Doll website and all I gotta say about those dolls: DO WANT! But alas I cannot buy anything or spend any money online. Too bad for me :(

I'm sure your friend you made that picture for will love it!

I've never really been that interested in Warhammer, so I cant give any advice on that.
But the tone looks better, the black gives it good contrast.
Do you resize the pictures after toning? Because that might produce the "irregular dots" thingie, which kinda bugs me.

Hmm... Nothing else to say really.

Oh wow, this thing is alive?
Oh sweet, pretty cool suit design there Capt.

Quote from: "CaptBrenden"
I imagin shes going to have some problems getting
that jump suit streached out over that rack


Well, yeah... never really thought about that. Just got to hope the suit is big enough.
I must say that her assets might be bit too big as the HDD capacity is only 250GB IIRC.
I blame Q4 for demanding them to be so big.

Quote
Just out of curiosity, since you didnt say really, what HDD would that be?  
May I saggest slapping a logo or something on the picture so if it floats around the net people will be able to recognize it?


She got a logo on her top, but its bit small and hard to notice. She's a Samsung laptop HDD thats put into a custom case.

Oh, btw. I've been trying to improve my coloring skill.

By "this thing" do you mean me or the thread? :P

Anyhow yeah, Im pretty happy with the suit design. I tried to make it look both sci-fi but still legitimately tactical.  His body armor is designed to cover a good portion of his body but is till light enough one can imagin him having a wide degree of mobility.  His pouches are layed out in a way that a right handed person could most easily access their gear...

In short im shooting for some beliveability in at least the combat aspects of my webcomic.

BTW, are you still working on your bunny corps?  I had an Idea for one, and I cant remember if youve done one like it.

I got a good short comic idea today that would include pretty lot of military stuff, but today was a very busy day and I didnt get time to sketch it down. Hopefully I'll get it tomorrow done.

But I got some bunnies done. Here's the ones I've done so far.

I dont know, I personaly think nejin is insande and sucks at art critique cus that picture looks pretty good. I feel you did an exellent job of color on the picture. I feel her head looks like it belongs as much as a pink haired big eyed anime girls head can in a situation like that.  He head stands out as much as anyones would in covert ops that doesnt do something to subdue it (cammie paint, balacava or whatever) I feel she looks pretty much like I would expect someone too standing in the dark once your eyes have adjusted.

Now what I notice about the picture is her expression... It really makes me wonder what it is shes seeing. Im not sure how to describe it, but its like whatever it is had made her drop her guard... like it put her deep in thought or something. She doesnt have a tactical air about her at the moment, more of an innocent one which seems od for someone with side arm in hand wearing tactical clothing.  

Sure, Im not sure if you were even thinking about any of that while you were drawing it, but it just seems like there is alot of hidden thought and emotion coming from her which give the peice a nice feel.

Humm, good stuff that. I almost want to try toneing that :P  Interesting detail, actually putting the knee pads down in the standby position instead of the knees if Im not mistaken. Tho, normaly when I see that people also rotate them outboard as well as drop them to shin level. More comfortable to have them there when not inuse.  Overall I like it. Mind if I give it some tone?

I got bored, inked it, and then slapped some tone on it.  I cant figure out why but the cat pattern in the background doesnt show up very well after I export it but It shows up fine in the work file. Tone is such a headache.  Anyhow, about the onlything Im proud of on this peice is the hair. I made an effort to do hair differntly then I normaly do, doing it more manga like then anime like (fine pen strokes creating the feel of hair rather then the kinda simplified hair shapes.  I think in that it turned out well,Ill probobly start doing that more often


and is it just me, or does that hat scream underated little brother living in his older brothers shadow?

I would have liked to see how the water effects would have turned out if you had been motivated to complete them :P

The water reflection was one reason I didnt want to finish it, yet...


That's pretty good Capt. Even if her eyes kinda look "spaced out".
The cat pattern problem might be from the resizing, if you did some.

Holy crap, all of you. My skills feel woefully inadequate now.
*sigh*
I never get enough practice nowadays. I hardly have time to doodle in my notes even.

....
I had this whole lengthy paragraph about archer, but I kept looking at it and looking at it, and then whatever weird thing I saw, I couldn't see anymore.  Something to do with the overall shape of his head... I think. argh. I won't think about it anymore. It's finals week, and my brain is running in safe mode.

And anyway, whatever correction that was would have required major re-inking for such a small thing.  Well, someone mentioned Ilya's hat. It does look a little thin. I think making the corners up on top a little more curved will help that aspect.

Otherwise, I can't find anything to really speak out about.  Saber's armor looked well done in the sketch too. Really awesome stuff.  I had finished Heaven's Feel just a few weeks ago, so f/sn is still very much fresh in my mind. Love to see the end result of this cap'n. :3

I envy her her figure, but that flak jacket doesn look like it will close :P  Ilike the smoothness of that peice,  looks like you blended the colors alot more on this then your recent painted works. the lines are crisp and smooth where they need to be, but still not overly defined making it feel sloft.  

somehow it also reminds me of cellshaded videogames,...

in other news, the ink is finished. I touched up the other frames a bit, and completed saber.  I think her armor turned out well. It looks sharp and precise like it should, but still looks hand drawn to match the rest of the peice.  Im pretty happy with all of the line work exept for how archer turned out.. he just seems.. off. Too young for starters... But Im getting too burnt out on this peice to redraw him. Its time to slap some tone on and get it done before I loose the desire too..

I don't quite understand how that top one is supposed to be a "doodle", or if the definitions of those somehow changed since last time I looked, because it looks fabulous. -w-
Other than that, what the hell it is supposed to be? And why is the second picture censored there...curious. -w-

I call it a "doodle" because the concept wasnt so good and I didnt use that much time on it in the end.

Ilya's pretty much done. Sakura needs shading, and Rider only has her base colors down.  
I'm so slow. ^^;;;

I'm amazed, VonDaab, at how you put these pics up so often.  I couldn't do anything like that to save my life.

Although when I REALLY get into it, I lose all track of time and just go crazy with the doodling.  Shading still takes me a while though.   hah, and sometimes, I end up putting details that end up too being small to see anyway. XD;

I recognize Gameboy Pocket-tan and Gameboy Color-tan but who is the girl at the far right in the second picture? I especially like Gameboy Color-tan with her roadkill companion and crazed facial expressions! :D

And excellent progress on the Fate/Stay night pic, SleepyD! The background on Sakura's panel is my favorite especially because the background suits her perfectly!

Yeah... we can see how much it pwned the GB.. as the gameboy series was alive and well untill recenetly and its sucsessor is the top selling system, and I have only vuagly heard of the lynx.. more like a mythical beast that once existed.  Very sucsessful indeed <_< not.

It doesnt matter how much more advanced a system is, hardware does not mean pwnage. I mean, look at the PS3.

Anyhow, back on topic... Im suffering a bit of an art block for random doodly stuff at the moment.  Tho some insperation as been sparked at my new project in the restricted areas, maybe it will get me out of my art funk.

Captain-sama makes an excellent, if terrible, point. Human history is littered with tales of better technology being discarded because of superior marketing or economy. Beta tapes, Lynx, Amiga, PS3...
From a practical standpoint, Captain-sama is absolutely right.
That does not mean we need to like it, though, ne? ^.^

I am sorry to hear of your art funk, Captain-sama. I hope it clears up soon!

Without turning this into a discussion of console loyalties, it seems Nintendo has always known how to make more of less.  Generally speaking, whenever Nintendo has opted to make a seemingly less powerful device, they've done extraordinarily well.  Of course in the handheld market, it also helps that they made their devices actually portable ("handheld" is hardly an accurate description of the Lynx or Game Gear, unless of course, you're Yao Ming).  Before anyone gets the idea I'm simply bashing here, truth be told, as a kid I always wanted the Sega Game Gear (or a GameBoy, but I really wanted to play Sonic) but never got one, so perhaps I'm just a bit bitter because of that :P.

On topic, we needs more doodly people.

Oh, and Ian... (OT, i knooooow) a 19" wide, 2-3"thick, 15 pound laptop was also considered portable, so the lynx wasn't that bad, my friend has one with a nice carrying bag wich also holds about 20 games...

It just makes me chuckle when people complain about the PSP - kids don't know how good they have it.

"Well, when I was your age, a handheld with a color screen cost over $200, and it really wasn't a handheld, you had to position your hands like you were using a keyboard.  Also, you had to get six AAs for it, and you'd go through those in a day.  This was before those newfangled rechargables you gots now, it wasn't cheap!"

Title: FREE COOKIES!
Post by: Aurora Borealis on February 23, 2009, 10:07:58 pm
What are the benefits to vector art?!
....
....
....

BWAHAHAHAHA! You've got some learning to do! Gather around, everybody as I teach you the benefits of vector graphics!

1. Vector graphics are about precision, a benefit if you are looking for precision!

2. They can be resized to any size without any loss of quality! This is something I really like because in my hand-drawn sketches, something always turns out to be too big or too small but in the vectorized version, I can adjust the sizes to what I intended but couldn't draw on paper!

3. Efficiency: Shapes and combinations of shapes can be reused over and over in parts of a picture or even between several different pictures meaning less redrawing to do!

4. By manipulating paths, you color as you go!

5. Because of their sharp look, vector graphics are very good at replicating cartoony and anime art styles!

6. You can change the color (or add or remove the color) of an object without degrading its quality at all. The color of the outlines can be changed just as easily!

7. Mistakes are easier to fix: This is the main reason I switched to vector graphics. I screw up a lot and it was very tedious to try and fix my mistakes when hand-drawing pictures in Photoshop. At least now my screw-ups are easier and quicker to fix!






But of course vector graphics are not without their setbacks:

1. Blurring: It's possible (and easy to do) in Inkscape but it is very taxing on the CPU's performance.

2. Variable-width outlines are possible but difficult and tedious to do.

3. Cannot easily replicate a manga-style.

4. Not ideal if you AREN'T looking for precision, and prefer the hand-drawn look and feel.

But as with any art form, you have to take the drawbacks along with the benefits.

Aurora beat to me it... (thank you, you provided a much more thorough explanation)

Really, it seems that each one has its own advantages/disadvantages and really whether one is good or bad is more dependent on what you're seeking to accomplish.  At the end of the day it all comes down to what you're more comfortable with and what exactly do you want out of it.

To put things in perspective it's kind of like programming languages.  For example, people will often complain that one programming language is too bloated, but on the other hand this other programming language is too limited.  Things are generally this way because certain languages are just better at writing complicated programs, and then other simpler languages are much better for writing scripts and extensions that the program can use.  At least this is the way that I see things.

Quote from: "Wikipedia"
The gun was sometimes called "Spandau" by British troops from the manufacturer's plates noting the district of Berlin where some were produced, much like the Germans' own World War I Maschinengewehr 08 had been nicknamed.

@VonDaab: Once again I've fallen way behind in this thread but great work with your last two pictures! Your latest one makes your character look really kick*** and I'm awestruck by your picture before that too! (Heheheh... I could never draw guns or body armor! x__x)

And of course I really like your "shaving is boring" picture. There's just something about that pic that made me really laugh!

@Hicamajig: Nice work! You just need to put the head and body together! ^^; I'm happy to see another artist posting up their work!

@Toki: That's a major improvement,! ;010

The original is still good and I liked the multicolored hair in that version but I really like the sharper and more vibrant look of the new version, most notably in the more detailed eyes and defined frills. Great job!

So yeah the other day I posted something in here to the effect of "I'm gonna post some artwork".  So Saturday night, with nothing else to do but watch the snow (which actually wouldn't have been that bad), I decided to get out my sketch pad and do a doodle.  It's a self portrait because that seemed to be the easiest thing for me to do.  I used to draw stuff all the time in my early teens, and one thing I realized right away - I suck at drawing women.  In general I'd say I'm not very good at all, but my women always came out looking very masculine (not my intention).  Anyway, without further attempts to save my own ego...

(http://www.picamatic.com/show/2009/03/02/08/55/2530986_bigthumb.jpg) (http://www.picamatic.com/view/2530986_selfport/)

Gah, it looks even worse than it did on the sketchpad >__<.  I should also point out that on top of the errors in perspective and proportion, it's lacking facial hair, which I have (although I'd prefer not to, but "Shaving is Boring").

Yeah, didnt really put any thought on the weapon, just drew something out of my mind. Hell, 3.1-sama should atleast have a M1903 Springfield rifle or something... Maybe blackpowder rifle like old Mauser or Vetterli?

Yes, but puberty hits usually pretty hard on the male-type of human thingie critters. Well, except Nejin...
Hey, puberty didn't hit me like that. I gave it an angry stare when it came, so it said like, "Just gonna leave this here" and dropped all the goods. I ditched the voice fuckups, the pimples and the general nuisances, and grabbed myself a DEEP voice while still keeping my HIGH voice, my fair share of testosterone and some extra FABULOUS with that. Fuckdamn, I don't think I ever saw a pimple anywhere on me. That's so awesome it's almost scary.

The price was pretty much all my sanity, mental bounds, restrictions and some hard-coded shit, but in hindsight it was a pretty good deal. (Well, excluding 8th grade. The hormones, man, I was pretty much RAGE all the time back then lol)

I havn't changed a bit... I reached age eight and just stopped... o.o;;

No zits, but also no boobs. No voice change, no height change.. >.>; However I did kinda look like a tiny Angelina Jolie back when I was like thirteen o__O I was always pissed off so I think that made my mouth look bigger from the excessive pouting.

On the OT, as a guy, I was always teased for having massive lips.  Those who were actually musically inclined would make fun of me by calling me Mick Jagger.  Everyone else would just call me "Mouth of the South", but that was also because I talked very loudly.

On topic, I made another drawing, but I've been hesitant to post because I'm so bad.  Anyway, it's inspired by one of my favorite movies and it's of one of my favorite actors.  A doughnut (or cookie, as it were) to anyone who can figure out where it's supposed to be from, because it's really not all that good and it's also not one of the well-known scenes.

Apparently, my ass is superior to Jennifer Lopez'.

So far, I haven't heard her opinion on this, but it's from a trusted source, so I'll let it hang.


I seriously never thought of that until the guys (that is, the MALES) in my class started going all "DAT ASS", and now some of them just randomly grab it in the corridor. And somehow I feel it's just too stupid to care about, so I'm all, "meh".
I dunno if this is good or bad. -w-;

I don't know what to say.  It's incredibly cute, but at the same time I'm not sure if I get what's going on, lol.  Still another example of how your attention to detail keeps improving, you can even see some detail in the face of the chronometer... that's cool.

DanKillmaster: Sorry to notice your drawing first now, there was lot of discussion about gay buttocks, so I hastly skipped them.

Yeah, I could see how that would be a bit distracting, but yeah it's Jack from the Shining.  Here's your cookie.

Added after VonDaab's edit:  That is waaaay better than mine... for me it was a bitch getting his hair to do right, but you've nailed it.  I think you also did a really good job of capturing his crazy look.  Originally I had wanted to draw the scene where Jack is chasing after Danny with his axe in hand, but that probably would've ended up looking worse than the one I did draw (and I couldn't find a reference pic for that one either).  Also, while I don't know if it's been done before, I wanted to use the "All work and no play" as a background, but I was too lazy to actually print (by hand) all that typeface. -__-;  Anyway, this picture has instantly become one of my favorites - good job.

Ooh, cookie! OM NOM NOM.

Thanks for the compliments.

Heh, I find it slightly amusing for you to call that watch a "chronometer".
(dont mind. profession inside joke)

What I've learnt with these years of drawing, that to learn drawing good "charicatures" of people, you need to put attention on the parts on the people that make them unique looking. As example with Mr. Nicholson, his receeding hairline and eyebrows were his trademark look back in the days.


Oh, and here's some more doodle.

Sorry to take this OT, but I think Smokey gave me the perfect opportunity for a segue.  That is, do we have any professional (or at least, good amateur) colorists on this forum?  I ask because not only does Capt-sama need some for a contest, but I also know of an artist who is looking for one to pay.  Gah, I hate to sound like I'm advertising - I'm just a little worried because I haven't seen many who profess to be "colorists" or anything like that.

That is correct. It is an Alura Une.

Yeah, they're sort of busty, as the Lynx had superior graphics to any portable console of its time AND ate a sick amount of batteries.
Old GameBoy then again is because she's kinda the mother of whole Game Boy line and she wasnt that sparing on the battery side either. Sort of a "mother character" bit like NT-san.

The way they were markettin it in the US, GameGear was the console of the "cool kids".
"The Sega Game Gear: Separates the men from the boys."

That slogan could only mean that the GG-tan should be toughter than steel... or something. So I made her be a Yakuza-like motorbike gang leader. She would be that at nighttime. Gotta figure out what she would be like on daytime.
Bike gang name would be AzureHedgehogs, for obvious reasons.

Yeah, I remember that, and that always seemed to be Sega of America's shtick.  I remember the Genesis, Saturn, and Dreamcast being marketed the same way - forget Sega CD, I don't even think they bothered to advertise it, at least not on the same scale as the others.  Still, as a kid, I actually bought in to all of that hype, but it's funny how a trip to a retro game store can make you realize how silly that was.

Jeebus, so much to catch up on in such a short time...

Lynx II - Atari logo cheeks, huh?  I'm guessing this was a part of the first Lynx design, too, but it just wasn't as easy to notice.  I see a bit of breast reduction, but not much - makes sense considering battery life only slightly improved (as you noted).  I can see dual-tone in the tail now, much easier to tell she has a tail now.  She's very cute, like Lynx, only a little smaller.

Game Gear - Where to start?  Obviously I'm quite happy you posted a new GG-tan.  I don't think I noticed the ring tat before - I guess I thought it was Sonic's head or something.  The buckle reads "SEGA"... nice.  The overhead sword draw looks pretty badass.  Great job again, VonDaab.

You sculpt?  That's awesome, I hope you go through with this... sounds awesome.
Title: FREE COOKIES!
Post by: VonDaab on March 29, 2009, 11:17:24 pm
Yeah, some tweaks here and there. I was bit on a roll this weekend.
Original GG did have a sonic head, but I thought a golden ring would be bit more casual, yet keeping the game reference.
Original Lynx-tan did have dual-tone tail, like real Lynxes, it just didnt show. The atari logo cheeks was something I came up with first when doodling Lynx II, and I think it should be a design feature only used for her.

GG's buckle is sort of the blue powerbutton, with just the added 'sega' text.

Yeah, I wonder what the sculpt will become. Its been over 2 years since I last time did anything with clay.

The ring is also convenient for detail, it'd be a lot more recognizable from a greater distance.  Yeah, I noticed the older Lynx drawings had tails, it just wasn't until the dual-tone started showing up that I started to find them.  Having the logo on the cheeks only for II is probably better, it'll help make her more easily distinguishable.

While it might not be entirely faithful to her gear, for Manowar-ishness, I would suggest leather pants and have the shirt be tear-off style instead and keep the boots as they are.

Well, I noticed the pose, but how would one make that more Manowar-ish?  Left hand instead right, I suppose?  I mean, there have been similar poses, as I referenced, there's Masters of the Universe.  Kind of hard to nail down a specific reference - it might have been easier with GG-tan, she could be holding a ring, much like the one on the cover.

Is it really OT?  We are after all, discussing possible influences on a drawing you posted.  Do I sound really snakish when I say things like that?

GG holding that ring description made me think of this.
(http://i229.photobucket.com/albums/ee258/VDaab/1217342754098.png)
Therefore, I think I must make something like that, but instead with GG in it.

And yeah, you're right, its not really that OT...

This is not OT, no...

Anyway, Frames as in frames to hang pictures in... that last pic of GG-tan was nice and finished enough to hang in a frame...

As for the Manowar-ish-ness... she's smiling to cutely... ^_^
And she needs to be gripping something really tight, maybe the triforce and a sword in reference to Zelda?

And yes i remember that glove... BTW we now have (at least in holland) a Neural Impulse Actuator (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neural_Impulse_Actuator) for PC games...

I remember when you were talking about that in the "Club" thread (I can never remember which order the damn initials are in).  Hmm, I thought it was turning out much better than that.  Still what I was talking about was far different from that, the only thing it shared in common with the Power Glove was that it was a glove.  The PS controller was just a glove controller - no motion sensing (at least, none that I remember).  It was largely criticized because its design was so unlike a Playstation controller, so much so that it was unwieldy and uncomfortable.  Still there were those that managed to stick with it despite the learning curve and enjoyed being able to play with one hand.  There was no analog control for it, but that wasn't a big deal considering Sony had yet to adopt analog as a standard.

Anyway, now we're veering OT.

You'd be surprised what you remember about yourself when you have self-image problems (that goes for self-consciousness or conceit).  Of course, this is me conjecturing based on my experience with my own self-portrait.

just incorporate a cooling system... it has been used in sertain types of computer mice for some time now...
And i would rather grip my handheld firmly than hold it loosely, because i hate the feeling that i am going to drop it any minute... then again, i don't want my stuff to be fragile... this is why i will never have a MacBook air, i just get the feeling that i am going to break it if i were to hold it...

Post by: IanDanKilmaster on April 05, 2009, 07:33:24 am
I don't know, I find ergonomics to be incredibly subjective.  Well with some examples excepted, the Wu Tang controller and that weird boomerang prototype controller for the PS3 (I don't think anyone had a chance to use that one, but I doubt anyone would find it comfortable).  Anyway, what I'm trying to say is that some people have big hands, some people have little hands, and that really factors into how comfortable they are going to be holding a certain handheld.  People with bigger hands (or longer fingers, like myself) are not going to find a really small handheld (say for instance, the GameBoy micro) very comfortable.  There's always this odd feeling that you're going to break the damn thing (like Smokey mentioned).  Of course, this sensation can be countered if the device possesses enough heft - it gives a feeling of durability.  Another problem with smaller handhelds is button placement, often there'll be problems with the buttons being improperly spaced - making it difficult to push only one button at a time.  On the other hand, people with smaller hands are going to find large handhelds clunky and awkward.  Larger handhelds also wear your hands out and cause a lot of sweat, and forget rubber grips, that just makes it worse.

Despite everything I've said, I still think ergonomics is the most important aspect of design, but it's followed shortly by simplicity.  This is going to sound absurd, but I'll say it anyway.  The PSP negates the principle of KISS, by having that damn joystick.  I guess it would be fine if it had just a D-pad or just a joystick, but having both just makes it awkward.  The point is, a handheld should only have a few buttons - which is why I like the handheld you've designed VonDaab.  Three face buttons and two shoulder buttons... nice.

Jeeeezus, I can't keep up at all...

Feel free to post that second pic in the Dirty Cookies thread in the H-section, it would be great because the whole H-section has been neglected for quite some time -__-.  As a general rule, nudity should be in the H-section - mild stuff is still tolerated elsewhere, but to be on the safe side, ya know?

That reminds me, I used to have a piercing, but I was pressured into getting rid of it.  I didn't have it very long, so the hole is completely healed... it sucks -__-.

Anyway, I'm all in favor for seeing VonDaab and Toki swap themes for a bit.  I mean, I've seen some cuteness in a bit of VonDaab's drawings (it's been awhile), but for him to use that as a theme for a time would be... interesting (no worries, VonDaab, I'm not talking loli).  Are we going to see this?

Wow... action!

Among everything I'm seeing here, it's odd that I feel most compelled to mention what I perceive to be a logo.  So what does it stand for?

The logo was sort of meant to symbolize a "W".

Oh, I was thinking you had come up with a name for it, but I recognized it as a "W".  You know, I'm always surprised with how much detail you put into your doodles - seems like it would be a major distraction.  Aside from the half-dog and bat-head, those creatures seem pretty fantastical, should I recognize them from somewhere or are they your own design?

In a combat mood much, VonDaab?  Diggin' the awesome fight pose on the first one...

Wow, that's excellent Vae-san ^^b.  I don't think I'm anywhere near the level of expertise to help you improve, but I would think VonDaab would be able to help you - he's really good and the artist that posts the most often.  He's our resident "Emperor of All Things Doodlin'" (was that not the title we bestowed upon him, Smokey?).

Hi Vaereth. Great to see new members, and even better new members who contribute to the art side of this site.

I'm no professional either, but I can provide some help.
Still, looking at your drawing, I dont really see any big mistakes in it.
Composition might be bit boring maybe, but the rest is really good.

Post by: Toki on April 23, 2009, 07:01:18 am
Vaereth!! Uwaah I love mecha musume I should try my hand at some.

Like VonDaab said there certainly aren't any glaring mistakes I would just suggest studying anatomy for future reference. But really it's just a matter of preference when drawing in manga-style.

Oh you guys just wait til I get home I have so much to show you. I went under some sort of art demon possession and sketched out lotsa fun stuff... all between 3 and 6 in the morning. I also did something really geeky and everyday I did a sketch of myself. I'm on my way home tomorrow! Still need to pack..

Quote from: ÏananKillmaster"
"Emperor of All Things Doodlin'" (was that not the title we bestowed upon him, Smokey?)


Well Grand Emperor of all things Doodlin, in wich case Emperor can be swapped with Imperator to make it a bit more impressive... (Impeator being the Latin word for Commander from wich Emperor was erived)


Anywho... Good art there Vae, first thing i said when i saw it was "Wow, you're really good", but then i got to the nitpicking and indeed your drawing is nearly flawless... But my eyes were drawn to her hands... and after much thinking and putting my hand on my face for measurements, i nitpicked a smal inperfection... her hands could be a bit larger, try it, your hand should be able to almost cover your face top to bottom...
But that small flaw was found after looking long and hard, plus i'm not an artist, so do with the comment as you will... ^_^

For the rest it's a good pic, though... put some color in, add a backdrop, and voila; great art...

Oh, and so definately want to see your stuff, Toki... ^_^

Post by: Vaereth on April 23, 2009, 03:33:59 pm
Thank you all for enjoying my pic^^
When I drew I actually don't think about any composition (I don't very good at it also( But I am trying to study it when I got free time ;012  ) and my illustrations are practically always in sketch stage  . But if you like I will try to color my pics))
Yes, the hands and feet are my weak points in all drawings( (especially fingers, large and shape) and some times it takes more than 2 hours to draw them in properly way ( but after that they are still not look like "real") but I think some anatomy study will swallow this problem^^ As soon as I get a new book about it  ;012

I really don't know much about the Professor Layton series, but that drawing is really impressive - it's got a much different look than the official art for the series.  Odd though, it almost seems ominous, one could say villainous even.

The bunny reminds me of a question I was going to ask you, have you ever consider drawing Chun-Li (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chun-Li)?  Those kind of thighs would be perfect for her, ya know?  Very cute drawing, btw ^^b.
Title: FREE COOKIES!

Yes, well the contest was about picking a hero and turn him into a villain.

Yes I know chun-li, since mid 90's.
Reason why I havent drawn her is that I rarely draw fanart. And sort of not sure if I'll get it right.
I've been already asked to draw a sort of similar character, Prier http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/f/fe/Prier.JPG

Title: FREE COOKIES!
Post by: NejinOniwa on May 02, 2009, 01:01:36 am
I was more thinking about the fact that it gives me a "middle"-y impression, something about her posture says middle...or just that the picture's focus is on its center, I dunno. ^^

As for mistakes - personally I think the arms and legs are a bit too much two-partly accentuated. The face is a bit too small (more realistic, of course, but you've gotta decide on manga-style or realistic before you start drawing ^^)  and lastly, the way you've placed her braid makes it look like a tail growing out of her butt. I'd change that.
Other than that there's of course anatomy, detail and finesse and so on, but that's nothing I can help you with. ^^
Title: FREE COOKIES!
Post by: VonDaab on May 02, 2009, 10:10:25 am
I dont see the "mistakes" Neij is pointing out...
They sound more like personal opinions.
I dont know why one should "decide" on the style like they would be rules written somewhere.
The fact that you dont follow any "style rules" is the foundation for your own art style.
Of course this requres basic knowledge of proper anatomy first...

Only thing that sort of gets my attention is the lineart, or the lack of it.
There's lot of gaps in between the lines, but as you said, you drew it quickly, so that explains it.

Well, I got 2 anatomy books, but theyre both published in finnish, so I dont know what they're called in any other language...
Well, found some info. The other one is by Andras Szunyoghy & György Feher called
"Anatomy Drawing School: Human, Animal, Comparative Anatomy"
It includes humans and some animals, which is nice if you're planning to draw dogs or horses.
It's a very thick and heavy book, so I found it big clumsy to keep it besides my computer when drawing...
Usually the best way to find good anatomy book is to walk into a book store and see for yourself if a book has good content.
Then again, I dont bother much with basics like proportion and things, so the books I have are more for detailed stuff like muscles and bone structure.

One really good way to learn human figure is to draw real humans, so if you got some friends with some patience, ask them to pose for a couple of minutes while you do quick sketches.

Now that this thread got some life again, maybe I should post something relevant.

Anyone remember that Lynx bikini picture from this post? http://ostan-collections.net/post-65193.html#65193

I decided to do a remake of it, this time with bit more effort.

Also, something in slightly different style.

Ooooh, shiny!  I notice that the colors are sharper, too.  Oil? Sweat? Both?  It is the beach, after all...

Awesome, this place could really use some more MGS fanart.  I mean, it tends to be fairly common on the intarwebs, but I rarely see any here (other than the other one or two fanarts you posted).  I seem to recall you made a slightly obscure reference to MGS in another thread (http://ostan-collections.net/topic-1021.html) as well, so you seem like a pretty big fan, as am I (though I've yet to play 4, yeah, I'm lame).  Have you done any pics of Meryl?

BTW. Almost forgot to mention how floored I am you can do so many styles.  You seem to work equally well in a bright, cartoony style as you would a gritty, realistic style.  Kinda rare to see one who can adapt his style to so many themes...

Yeah, I'm sort of a MGS fan, even if I dont own half of the games, but still played most of them, even the one on the GameBoy Color.
Eh, no Meryl, because I'm not much fan of that particular character.

I still have to say that my strongpoint has to be the cartoon style, or atleast the "realistical" style doesnt get as much practicing at it should.

I try to work on it whenever I feel like it, which is bit rare.
Anyways, might spam some moar.
Somesort of dude I doodled when taking a small break from working on that MGS pic.

haha, I wonder what the astronaut is fishing for...?

I have to concur with Ian.  You are amazing in that you can do so many different styles... yet i can see that you've developed a particular.... shall I say, "VonDaab anime style" that is instantly recognizable. :3

as for me, I'm still playing around with my style.  My engineering classes have left me little free time to work on my artistic endeavors, as it were. heh

Now it's summer break, but I am a VERY SLOW artist, so I can't churn out drawings like you can vondaab. ^^ I'm amazed at how you and other artists can draw so much... My perfectionist tendencies slow me down so much. haha

Moon bunnies?

Yeah, my 3rd school year starts in early august and I'm prepared for it to be a VERY hectic with all exam test in the spring and all kind of other things.
So no clue if I will have any time for drawing then. Oh well, I got a month left of my summer break.
This school is good in its way that it rarely has any homework, other than reading for tests. So it has given me a decent amount of free-time after school, which I then have wasted on drawing or gaming...
And weekends dedicated completely for drawing, gaming or anime.

Yeah, "VonDaab anime-style"...
Usually when an artist picks up the "anime-style", they usually take an existing style and make an own version of it, but still you usually can see the influence in their style.
This comes to a thing that I've been wondering.
I dont know what "anime-style" my style imitates...

Eh, you say you're slow... Well, I have too little patience to work on a drawing for a longer time, therefore I try to work on it fast before I get bored with it. Still, quickness comes with experience.

Moon Bunnies? (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qzET0-OC3vQ)

Tewi! Tewi! Tewi!

....okay, I'm done.


I wish you luck with your studies!  My assignments are generally group projects or lab work, so it isn't exactly busywork, but it does drain a lot of my time.  I expect next semester to be the same too.  

I see what you mean. My style doesn't really imitate anyone in particular.  I do adore Kuroboshi Kohaku, Makoto Shinkai, and Tony Taka, but apart from me trying to imitate a certain painted "look," there really isn't any one style that I try to emulate.  It's more a combination of influences + my capabilities.  I can't deny that my 2 sisters have had an influence on me as well.

Yes, quickness does come with experience... I don't get much experience, to be honest. haha...

I've found that I need to start and finish things within a week, else I get tired of working on it.  School makes it hard to keep that deadline, and I have a lot of unfinished works as a result.  After a few months I see so many things wrong with it, I eventually give up.  The Prisma Ilya drawing I just uploaded on dA took me around 4 days.  Hopefully I can get more in before summer break ends.

Great works, and I like your art styles, especially in the 3rd and 4th pictures which combine your anime style with elements of realism that work together nicely. ;010

Are those also original characters of yours too?

Like with the other posters, I'm curious about that 5th picture- what's going on there?!
Title: FREE COOKIES!
Post by: Kata-Kun on August 19, 2009, 04:08:49 am
Heh, I am quite pleased with the responce of the last one, though I really should have elaborated. Firstly, everything there is of orignal characters. Some much newer than the others.

Image one: Kinguin. I took my oldest character, Kata, and made him into a penguin.

Image two: This showcases a power-suit created for my original project "Doam." Doam doesn't really stand for anything important yet, and the project has been set aside for now.

Image three: Atticus of Mana: 404. My current project. My style has done some real evolving as of late.

Image four: Robin of Mana: 404. She's a spirited girl.

Setting up image five: Every good story has misleading fan service and related images. Here we see Robin shouting Atticus' name in Ecstasy as he is standing off to the far side of her, rather confused.

Cool! I have a strong appreciation for original characters! I used to draw OS-tan stuff a lot but in recent months I've been mainly focused on my own original character series which I had neglected for way too long.

I didn't notice the penguin was Kata! Should have guessed that was him, based off your depiction in your avatar! ^^;

And I forgot to ask earlier but in the second picture, is the guy really short, the mecha girl really tall or both?

Oh, now I see what you were going for in the 5th pic and I like it! Heheheh... I like that kind of humor!

BTW, do you have a gallery for your projects?

I prefer the first one too. o3o It is deffinately more my personality, but mostly I was referring to the outfits. I know they don't look like much but respectable dancers do wear skimpy things like that! The first one I designed(which is silver raincoat-type material) , the second one my friend (who I'm essentially "working for") designed the second one (but I drew it. It's black with florescent pink accents) so I'm trying to figure out how to perhaps take both and come up with something we both like. Not that I don't like the second one. However I could pretty much just buy all the pieces. It isn't very uncommon but I suppose that is alright...

Wow, you've improved more since I last saw you. XD; ugh, I really need to find time to do some arts stuff of my own.

The first one is really dynamic, and indeed suits you. heh
The second one is much simpler, and while it may be more realistic to not have so many things flying around while dancing, it's not very... interesting. heh  

hm... so you want to compromise?
Keep the skirt, I like the zettai ryouiki. XD

It seems your friend prefers something simpler?
Try taking your friend's design and accessorizing it? Or making latex/shiny clothing?
Black is usually presents a much more subdued feeling than something with more color. (for example, black fits slow and sexy more than energetic and cute), but I think you should get creative with the pink accent color and find something you can both enjoy.

Thought of neon green and pink highlights in the hair randomly... not sure if want. haha see if you can do anything with that.

Post by: Toki on October 07, 2009, 07:51:53 pm
Well the first one is more <i>based</i> on myself, whereas the second one is more based on my friend who is not a super genki as I am but prettier and a good dancer as well. Just to clear that I guess, we're partners and I want us to have matching outfits :3

I'll redraw them both, with both of us together. And a little tweeking.

@ Aurora: I think in every Multics-sama drawing I do, the dresses become more and more complex.

And yeah, I do suppose that's what a reborn Multics-sama would look like (I drew concpet sketches for that outfit awhile back, but never posted them). Somehow I wonder how happy Multics-sama and Unix-sama's "ever after" would be, though; Multics-sama could do nothing but dredge up a past most Unix-tans are unaware of, and bring a lot of past pain to the surface.

@ Nejin: Yeah, I feel the same way about my drawn pictures as well... there's so much more variability and spontaneity in a hand drawn image.

This is why I'd like to try using a tablet...

^It certainly would be for the best that Multics and Unix rebuild their lives in secrecy, never letting their descendants find out about it.

It's a shame indeed, Viper.  I know the games weren't too much in terms of gameplay, but LoK has to be one of the best stories ever... video game or otherwise.  At least Defiance brought what I consider to be a satisfying end to the series.  In any case, do you have any drawings of the Elder God?

This is all great work, Viper.  I find it interesting which components people choose to anthro on their system.  Most people usually just make a -tan for their entire compy, but some, like you, seem to prefer the individual parts (like hard drives and video cards).

Impressive stuff.

@IanDanKilmaster: story and voice acting/dialogue is win, even the music imo (although defiance recycled it), Amy Hennig left CD, and one of the devs for LoK died along with Tony Jay (Elder god's voice).
Ive only drawn Elder god twice though, both are quick draws :D...

(http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a338/ViperXtreme/sketches/razieel.jpg)

If i knew those hardware/software tans long ago maybe i had resorted to same system-tan as well, but in my case, video cards specially in the recent years has the "sexiest" look on a computer component and as a pc gamer, i opted to draw em like that XD

OT: i remember your avatar, that's Lime from Saber Marionette right? i used to watch the series last time, and i must say those androids are one of my basis for the GPU tans :D (and one of the first anime females i was able to draw)

@Red-Machine: Custom 8600GT, she has those X-Striker 3 cooler and i slapped it in her back :D
http://images.google.com.ph/images?q=x-striker%203&oe=utf-8&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&hl=tl&tab=wi

and btw, here's Yoshi-tan, from the Mario series. Someone made a lil girl version of Yoshi the dino and i kinda thought "So Mario would ride her and make her swallow things? omg!!"
So i asked permission to use the character, then it gave birth to a random comic, i only planned for a few pages but it eventually spanned to around 40+ XD
Here's the first page btw...mebbe i can post it ina  different thread so all 40+ pages would fit better...

I agree with you once again, Viper.  Michael Bell, Simon Templeman, and Tony Jay (well the whole damn cast, really) were just so awesome in that game.  I was very disappointed when I read of Tony's passing - I don't think there's another guy that can do "the voice of god" like him.  I love the soundtrack too... it's on my computer.  All this being said, our gushing for this beloved series would probably be better reserved for the computer & gaming section.

As with everything else, your Elder God pics are total WIN.

Video cards... sexy?  I dunno... I do like your take on them, however.

Yoshi...-tan O_o?

@VonDaab I could've sworn you had already explained mämmi to us some Eostre before.  I think I said something to the effect of wanting to try it.

Funny pic, but who's that being fed?  I recognize the other two from some of your other work, but I'm not sure I've seen her before.  If I'm not mistaken, this forcefeeding mämmi appears to have become an Eostre tradition of yours. ^^

Hmm, that's strange...
Well, it seems like I really been away so long that I never posted any proper art of her.
This is Tebi, originally a hardware -tan for a 1.5TB external HDD but later remade into a regular character of my cast.

Well, mämmi is delicious and everyone should atleast taste it before making any sort of opinions of it.
This year I actually forced one person to eat mämmi, just because she said she never had tasted it.

(http://www.majhost.com/gallery/OwlBear1337/Sketches/roundworm_ascaris-tan.png)
Roundworm Ascaris-tan; small but likes to live in large groups because she gets lonely quite easily. A freeloader by nature, she likes to take it easy and isn't picky with what she eats. Whatever her host eats...she eats too. However, Ascaris-tan's tendancy to live in large groups can cause various problems for her host...

(http://www.majhost.com/gallery/OwlBear1337/Sketches/hookworm-chan.png)
Hookworm-tan; despite her assertive nature to get blood...she's fairly soft and will behave herself if you poke her in the stomach. Apparently, she gets all bashful if you point out she's a bit on the husky side. Unlike Ascaris, Hookworm works on her own and can be quite the glutton when it comes to blood.

Even so, Tapeworm is believed to be sought after the most when Weight Loss is concerned...

Quote
Drawing is all about a random concept i thought about several months ago.
It's about a poor little girl (with her poor family) who is a squatter in the putrid depths of a certain city. Life is harsh there and her family works hard just to get by. One day, her father, manage to win on a bet/gambling and bought some stuff for his family to use, one of them is an old TV (connected to an illegal cable connection).
The little girl got a little interested on the TV so she tried watching several channels, but one channel got her attention, a certain channel that mostly shows Japanese Anime. It changed her life (and everything around her) forever.

They are supposed t be drawn semi/realistically at first, but after the incident, her drawing slowly becomes more anime-ish and everything she interacts with becomes anime-ish as well. Its mostly a spice of life genre and depicts parodies of several issues in our country today, all of it in her anime-ish point of view.

I gave em names btw, (aside from their real names)
Squatter-tan (the main character)
Sugalero-toosan (sugal/sugalero means gambling/gambler)
PokPok-kaasan (*****, well she's not really a ***** here)
Adik-kun (addicted to rugby and constantly sniffs it, her emo elder brother)

Characters from a comic I drew back in the 7th grade. I've been doing alot of digging through my old drawings and comics and I've been compelled to re-design alot of characters since...well, I'm alot better at drawing now than I was when I was like, 12.

I'll say that the comic itself had alot of potential if I actually put work in fleshing out the characters more and did a bit more world building. Back then, I wasn't as skilled at those things as I am now so, plotlines were kinda lame and straightforward, but that didn't seem to stop me from drawing over 250 comics :V

I think I can make it even better if I go back and work on it now.

: \

Assuming you like his/her style, don't feel that way - whenever I see an artist who's style/skill I like, I try to be inspired by it rather than think "oh s/he's so much better at xyz and I'll never be that good (or better)". Think about what s/he's doing and how you can do that yourself; don't be afraid to emulate and try new things~ -W-

Just as a frame of reference, I was really in awe of C-Chan's and Aurora's work when I came here and never thought I'd be able to pick up Inkscape like they did; but I was so inspired by their art - and the artists themselves - that I learned anyway. I can't say I ever got as good as either, but seeing their work and having their encouragement constantly pushed me to try my hardest.

Same goes for Stewart and Nejin and writing. Their stories inspired me to try writing OS-tan fanfiction, and they themselves continue to make me want to do my best to this very day. -W-
Title: Re: FREE COOKIES!
Post by: Chocofreak13 on February 24, 2011, 07:55:19 pm
eh, it's not entirely that, it's also partially that i've never heard viper say that s/he had these sorts of worries. it's like s/he never even practiced or anything, that it just sorta came to him/her.

it's also that viper told me once that s/he doesn't plan on going pro. i don't mind it as much with you, since you used to be in the same boat as me (and that you worked hard to get where you are today), but just writing this off as a simple hobby bothers me. this is what i want to do for a living. >__<

anyway, this isn't the time or place to debate this. so next post, i'll be showing my next class project. :3

Trust me - s/he HAS practiced. A lot. Drawing doesn't "just come to" people, it's a learned skill like playing an instrument or picking up a foreign language. : \

I don't think I've ever posted any watercolourings here, have I? Anyway. Some OS-tannage, traditional style!

thanks, that sketch is supposed to be one of the new characters in the win7 comic im makin (which is on currently on a hiatus), still thinking of the final design. Btw im a "he" :D
I used to draw a lot, im already infesting papers before i even go to school as a child, its practice in a sense, but i don't wanna call it that since it feels like your just forced to learn, i draw to enjoy it, not to be a chore. Im still stuck on pencil because im interested on developing concepts and story more than improving the way i draw thats why i can't color like you Bella XD

@Gussy: I'm guessing there's some sort of Touhou reference involved. Not familiar with it in the least bit, but I'm glad to see you back again and posting up art! :)

@Viper: Your character designs are really cool! Is she a character of yours?

@Bella: Panty and Stocking look so adorable in your art style! And thank yoooou! Chibi!Katt looks sassy and confident, and since she's in her student president campaign costume, looks like she's ready to pwn Ima in the elections-- oh wait! Bwahahahaha!

@Canary: Looks very cute! I'm a fan of Ubunchu too, it's too bad I've never got to drawing any fanart.

from L-R: UMES, GMOS, IBSYS, BESYS. Four of the earliest OSes made.

how pretty! as i'm not completely up to speed on this sort of thing, how old are they? :3 (and is it just the os, or the hardware too? :\)
Title: Re: FREE COOKIES!
Post by: Aurora Borealis on March 10, 2011, 11:01:44 pm
All of them are deceased, but their OSes are from the 1950's, which they mostly represent.

Glad you like the artz Kari, Aurora. <3

Looks spectacular Aurora! Of course the ladies look very pretty, but there's also something really special going on with the shading and colouring... you've managed to make bright, airy and harmonious, the sort of thing I could look at all day. *__*

IBSYS is still alive under emulated systems... http://www.cozx.com/~dpitts/ibm7090.html

Thanks! I'll still need to touch this up before submitting it to DA- Didn't realize 'till now that the chair in the bg is lopsided. x_x

Coloring this was a challenge, but it was fun trying to replicate that watercolory, shoujo manga look, and mess around some with using shadows and highlights of different hues.

Neat find- I didn't know IBSYS was still alive in some form, or brought back from the dead, whatever the case is. What do you think her whereabouts would be?
Title: Re: FREE COOKIES!
Post by: Chocofreak13 on March 11, 2011, 03:39:48 am
it's still an interesting concept of how we consider a -tan/-kun "alive" or "dead". either way, crooked chair or not, aurora, the picture still looks nice. :3

Post by: ViperXtreme on March 12, 2011, 07:09:22 am
@Aurora Borealis: thanks and ye, an OC, supposed to be the successor of my 9600GT "tan" (one of the characters on the comic im workin on)

Unlike 9600GT, i design the new one a bit more like the actual hardware. She is also smaller/shorter physically. Her personality is also more of a bit "tsundere" like because of her actual model.

Was planning to introduce her during the Win7 comic progression but my severe procrastination has been affecting me lately...

some quick drawing of the body...

Minor mistakes considered, you still did an excellent job of it! I've been trying to experiment with using variable hues for shading + highlighting too.

I don't know if IBSYS-tan is alive or not... : \

onomatopoeia for "practicing, practicing"?

Renshuu, renshuu i believe. Or at least, it's the most commonly used I can think of in the sense of it, such as denoting the weight of practice for skill etc, which commonly utilizes that line.

Ehhhh.... I don't know if Snow is "nice" but she certainly comes off as amiable. (Except when dealing with her earlier incarnation. And Tiger-tan. And Lion-tan. And Puma-chan. And Linux, and Unix-sama too, and just about everyone else she's ambivalent to.) And considering the amount of dirt she has on, well, everyone, it's friggin' saintly of her to keep it all under her hat. -V-

But I didn't want to draw a new lineart, since I was feeling lazy and all. I don't know if I captured the magic of the first one (though that might be because the second had a much better/cleaner lineart to begin with), but I like it so far.

@Stew: PDP-1-tan has medicinal uses? Right, CTSS died of Not Being Loved Enough (you might doubt that Not Being Loved can kill a person..... but it totally can in the OS-tanverse).

to be honest, i think the hand looks good, but if you're dissatisfied with the lineart, just do what i do and fix it in editing. :\

I'd also like to see that colored! Agreeing with Choco here- if you want to tweak PDP-8-tan's hand, do so when digitally editing so you don't risk smudging/unwanted eraser marks/etc.

@Pentium: She's OpenVMS-tan. Created 1977, VMS is a minicomputer/server OS that's virtually uncrackable, virus-free, crash-free and fault-tolerant; computers running VMS commonly run for months, sometimes years at a time without having to be rebooted or shut down.

Thusly, VMS-tan is an uber-badass of the highest order; a stoic, misanthropic, sword-swinging, knife-throwing, possibly-sociopathic leather-wearing masked vigilante who hunts (and kills) crackers, virii and other computer security threats as a hobby. While she likes solitude her general air of coolness (and the promise of protection) has gained her quite a following of fanboys and -girls. Has two adoptive "children", one genetically-modified clone (you may know her: she's Windows NT-tan), an an assistant who pretends to be her husband despite the fact she's 100% asexual and uninterested in relationships. More info can be found on her wiki page: http://ostan-collections.net/wiki/VMS

I've all but abandoned vector art, I think my last finished vector piece was in late 2009 or whereabouts... did a lot of traditional art after that, and in early 2010 I got a Wacom Bamboo tablet and started doing raster art in GIMP. Last winter I acquired Photoshop, and haven't looked back...

Pencils, photoshop and watercolors are probably my top three mediums at the moment.

I'm sort of freaked out about the size-and-apparent-age difference here.... but I guess it drives home the fact that there IS a size/physical age difference (Unix is ~5ft, Linux is 5'6'', Unix is in her mid-teens in apparent age, Linux is in her late teens or whereabouts)

This drawing was inspired by my checkerboard socks, electronica + Beck music and random late night musing upon the yet-unmentioned fetish-fueliness of Whirlwind-tan. (She's a fairly well-endowed glasses-wearing tall dark 'n bishoujo exotically-accented hot scientist who may've worn leg braces in the past, was in the military and thus probably wore a uniform, sometimes wears a labcoat and occasionally dons corsetry, produced several cute/attractive children and ended up a bandage babe in her final days (complete with eyepatch/head-bandage combo a la Rei Ayanami!)

@Penti: Quite certain, now, that it's the eyelessness. Eyes are such a giant indicator of emotion (especially in mangaesque drawings) that somebody missing them (or hiding them) only looks half-complete.

The Plan 9 in a plugsuit pic made me chuckle- Unix has a soul? XD

Besides, wouldn't she have to be dead to power an Eva? Or maybe that is the joke, she has enough pent-up rage to power one while alive!

The SAGE portrait looks amazing- I don't see anything wrong with it!

Your latest picture looks adorable- the CDCs (and Cray-1!) are a wacky bunch. :P It's been a while since I've seen any of them, but I recognized NOS and SCOPE instantly- especially NOS. That expression she has on is sooooo her! :D

You're pretty close. Left to right (corrections highlighted in bold) - TOS/360, TSS/360, DOS/360, OS/360, VM/CMS, Michigan Terminal System (MTS), BOS/360, and MUSIC/SP.

VM/CMS was my second guess who the girl next to OS/360 is (I've drawn VM/CMS as having braided pigtails), I thought the next one was MTS because of her hairstyle but wasn't sure, and I've never seen MUSIC/SP before (and there's pretty much no way UMES and MTS could be seen together since UMES died shortly after MTS was born). Still, I'm glad that some of my guesses were right. :)

Snow Leopard obviously hails from some cold/snowy/sunlight deprived region in space/time, and developed the lighter color scheme to blend into her environment better...

(http://fc03.deviantart.net/fs70/i/2011/353/5/8/2011_summary_of_art_by_bellacielo-d4jlj0f.png)

From my dA page (with minor name modifications, since I used dA aliases on dA):

2011 Summary of Art:

January: Connecticut-tan, who a friend on dA and I designed. This was a gift art for him, because he gave me a three-month subscription.Watercolors on cold-pressed paper.

February: Watson-tan, an OS-tan representing IBM's Watson artificial intelligence system. (This was of course inspired by Watson's historic appearance on the trivia competition Jeopardy.) Digital painting in Photoshop CS4. I experimented quite bit here with lighting and bioluminescence and REALLY want to draw this character again because she's so much fun to color!

March: Mac OSX Snow Leopard-tan. CS4. I thought this one was kinda dull at first, but in hindsight I really like it and am impressed at how I was able to make a predominantly white color scheme both subtle and vibrant.

April: Nothing uploaded.

May: Sketch of my Strike Witches RPG OC, Celia Baumer. Pencils.

June: My aforementioned RPG OC Celia and my boyfriend's [Stewart's] OC Elenore Petrisse. This was a gift drawing for his birthday and still stands as some sort of personal crowning moment of achievement coloring-wise. Really, I adore how it looks on a screen, I adore how it looks in printed form, the coloring just feels so harmonious and crisp! CS4.

July: SAGE-chan and Whirlwind-hime, two of my bf's OS-tan OCs. I continued to refine the coloring methods I had worked out on June's painting, and am VERY proud of this one too. Both because of the coloring and how I was able to portray the characters - SAGE-tan turned out so cute and sweet-looking and Whirlwind feels so mature and elegant.  CS4.

August: OpenVMS-tan. Lineart and some coloring in The GIMP (earlier that year), finishing work in CS4. The coloring looks softer in this one than the others because it was largely colored at an earlier date when I was using a softer style (see February's painting). I'm impressed by the clothing and hair in this one, since I haven't been able to re-capture a similar level of detail in more recent works.

September: PDP-8 and LINC-tan, OS-tan characters created by me and my bf, respectively. CS4.

October: Whirlwind-hime pinup. This drawing makes me really happy because it was so much fun to work on and I got a lot of good feedback about it! CS4.

November: God-mode SAGE-tan. I love this drawing in theory but it was such a pain to work on, and I don't think I did strong enough lighting effects (considering the huge stain-glass window behind SAGE). I might try making a version with eyes showing in the future, since I suspect I might be put-off by the lack of eyes in this image. CS4.

December: Princess Luna, from MLP:FIM. This was one of those rare paintings that felt effortless and consistently FUN to put together - I think the dark color scheme and gentle lighting had a lot to do with this. Or maybe it was just beginner pony-artists' luck? CS4

This is still the place to post random art, right?

In that case... In the time I've been non-memory resident (since like April/May, I think?) I've actually somewhat improved my artistic ability, which currently culminates in the art I've done of two of my DnD characters for one of my friends' campaigns.

@AlexS: Yes.

You've made a lot of progress, and I think this is the first time I've seen you draw people. I remember back with the calculator-tans brainstorming, you described several of the character designs and drew some details, but I can't recall if you drew full characters, or did digital drawings. What classes are those characters? I'm afraid I'm not familiar with DnD- actually, I have no idea where to start with trying to understand it! ^^;
===============

A fairly quick, "Mac-mas" picture I finally got to making! Well, more accurately, it's a snapshot of what Xmas would be like at the Apple family reunions. :D

(the cards that GS/OS-tan, System 6-tan and 7-tan are holding are a reference to HyperCard stacks, and the background was done partly in Mac Paint)

When adding in another character in the background (originally it was just Cheetah-tan), I was trying to decide between having the other character be either Lisa-tan, Mac-tan or Lion-tan, but decided on Lisa-tan because this would be the first time she's been depicted smiling... :P

Merry "mac-mas"!

Post by: Alex S on December 26, 2011, 11:47:40 am
@Aurora  Toward the end of that thread, I did try to draw some full-body art for a few of the calcu-tan, such as HP-01-tan and Windows Calc-tan, but they were entirely on paper, and I wasn't good at drawing faces or doing shading back then!

Both of the characters I drew are Warforged, which are essentially robots/androids/etc. The first one is a monk, using a set-up that lets "him" benefit from weapons, unlike 'traditional' monks. The second image is the same character at a higher level.
The other character is a "hybrid wizard/sorcerer", which in terms of the character, means "he" gets lasers. "He" is a mass-produced artillery drone with a chest-mounted cannon, and gained sentience. Which boils down to lasers.

These are hotlinked from my deviantart (http://'http://alexsushiama.deviantart.com/'), which sat mostly unused until I decided these were good enough to go up.

On your art, that looks like what the Mac House would send out as a Christmas card! Or at least the Vintage Macs.

DEC-tan sketches:

(http://img824.imageshack.us/img824/7721/img110m.jpg)
Top, L-to-R: PDP-10-tan, PDP-11-tan, PDP-8-tan (she doesn't wear glasses so I gave her science goggles) and PDP-1-tan
Bottom: VMS-tan doesn't do physicals. Especially not when LINC-tan is involved. But PDP-8-tan would be a willing patient.

(http://img708.imageshack.us/img708/6204/img112l.jpg)
Top, L-to-R: PDP-10-tan AND -kun; PDP-7-tan.
Bottom, L-to-R: PDP-7-tan and little Unix-tan; PDP-3; PDP-4.

Nice sketches!

Awwww.... Poor LINC! Aside from PDP-8-tan, she gets no respect from any of the DECs!

The sketch of PDP-7 and little Unix is very cute! Is PDP-7-tan still alive, and how did she react to Unix becoming... what she became when first corrupted by Multics' power? 0_0

In the last sketch, it looks like OS/8 is pwning everyone except for RT-11, who is one of the few OS-tans that can rival her in speed! :D

PDP-7-tan is very much alive. I imagine she was wildly protective of Unix back in Unix's youth and maybe even tried to integrate her into the DEC clan (to no avail) and is still loyal to Unix today. Even though Unix has been corrupted by Multics' power, PDP-7 still sees her as that friend she helped create all so she could have someone to play with...

Post by: Aurora Borealis on January 04, 2012, 07:20:50 am
So PDP-7-tan is very innocent-minded, just wanting someone to play with, though when she created Unix, she ended up with a lot more than she bargained for! Too bad that she wasn't Unix's mentor. If she were, do you think Unix would have been a lot more well-adjusted? Considering that Unix became the enemy of the DECs, I'm guessing that PDP-7-tan was dishonorably discharged. Where would she be now?

I gave a very lengthy answer to your questions over in this thread (http://ostan-collections.net/forum/index.php/topic,1154.msg115389/topicseen.html#msg115389), since that's where I posted a preconcept bio for PDP-7-tan - and because I don't want to clog up this thread with more text that need be. ^^;

1) Yes, it is MTS-tan

they weren't even naughty. you were posting them out of the hentai section so it's not like they were even bad. :\

also, considering how many times i've been called a hipster and how many times i've denied it, I AM UNIX. o__o;

nice pics though :3

This is the "offending" image in question (http://bellacielo.deviantart.com/art/Hipster-tans-287718670) (on the left side).

Also, I don't know how anyone could mistake you for a hipster... you're way too emotive, actually care about things, and like anime too. Which I'm pretty sure are three no-no's of "conventional" hipster culture.

*applause*

comment'd on the DA pic. maybe it was flagged for naughty cause you can see someone's crotch? but it's clothed, so idk what the prude's problem is. >>;

that said, my sister has called me a hipster before because i have a tendency to say "you've probably never heard of them (band)". however, i only do that because 90% of the time, NO ONE HAS. i doubt anyone here has heard of BEAST or DBSK, and i doubt that someone i know in person (who isn't into anime) would have heard of Miku or Perfume, or even PUFFY for that matter. :\

i remember you calling me a hipster at one point too. it was a subject of fierce debate. :\

Post by: Bella on March 03, 2012, 06:54:15 pm
Lol, yeah, I thought that maybe somebody mistook crotch + skinny jeans for nudity, but it's not like there was any anatomical detail ... ><

One problem with your sister's hypothesis, LIKING J-POP IS LIKE THE LEAST HIPSTERISH THING. EVER. For that matter, liking any kind of pop that's not indie pop/folk pop/baroque pop probably puts people out of the running for having hipsterist musical tastes.

Kari, if I ever called you a hipster I was being sarcastic or joking, because 1) You're about the least hipsterly person on OSC (which is saying a lot, since nobody here is hipsterish in the traditional sense, and the one person who DOES display hipster traits identifies as something else entirely) and 2) I have no recollection of calling you that. However I do recall a fierce debate about whether or not I'm a hipster after I mused about some of my own hipsterish traits, but I quickly came to the conclusion that being able to call oneself a hipster probably disqualifies one from using that label.

So, I actually uploaded something I made: a quick doodle of TOM 1.0 (Host of Toonami circa 2000), a day after the block was cancelled in September 2008
(http://th02.deviantart.net/fs71/PRE/i/2012/098/d/d/toonami___tom_1_0_doodle_by_pentiummmx-d4vgu99.jpg)

This was done entirely with pencils and paper, aside from using the GIMP to clean up some spots that came from it hanging on my wall for several years (In fact, you can see it in this excerpt from a pic I took a while back, next to the 2 doodles of TOM 1.0 I made back in 2000 (http://i180.photobucket.com/albums/x283/The_Real_PentiumMMX/Timey%20wimey%20stuff/the3toms.png))

Series is a crossover of Upotte!! and Jormungand
Upotte!! is a manga (with a currently airing anime) that portrays personification of guns (much like OS tans), and the guy is holding a bullet magazine, you will know what he's up to...
Jormungand is also a manga and a currently airing anime that portrays the story of arms dealer Koko Hekmatyar...

Nice ^_^

So, upon Kari's request, a single-panel comic I made last night (http://pentiummmx.deviantart.com/art/A-quick-doodle-301995300). I may have labeled this as "A quick doodle", but it took me about an hour to get what you see here; as I ended up needing to trace the original drawing onto a new sheet of paper so I can have sharper lines (Directly drawing with a pen over the pencil was not wanting to work for me), and lastly, coloring in everything.

The art is a bit simplistic, but given the goofy nature of the comic, I think the artstyle works in it's favor. Any thoughts?

Looks nice :3

Is there any other art of Emacs-san I might not know of? The mystery intrigues me
If female, I'd do her. If male, I'd wish I could trap like that...and would probably still do him >w>
Granted, by "do", I mean "snuggle with" >w<


I haven't drawn Emacs-kun in so long, unfortunately, the only things i have are a few very (http://bellacielo.deviantart.com/art/We-re-Shippin-Now-112677274) old (http://bellacielo.deviantart.com/art/Emacs-Vi-and-Red-kun-104125703) sketches (http://bellacielo.deviantart.com/art/OS-tan-Sketchbook-pg-4-145435912), and a character meme (http://bellacielo.deviantart.com/art/OC-Meme-OS-tan-Edition-153317602). But you've inspired me to write up a wiki article for him. ^^

No need to be abashed, in-canon Emacs-kun is something of a chick/dude/everyone magnet. 

Hell, he even has his own religion (http://www.dina.kvl.dk/~abraham/religion/).

The purple-haired chibis are amazing, and each with a different shade of purple! However, I didn't know all of them were OS-tans though; I recognized Multics, Linux and Unix right away but didn't know the left two are TOPS-20 and TOPS-10; in particular, TOPS-10's design looks very different than your earlier renditions, but I like it nonetheless.

Nice work with the noseart too. :)

========

I finally got the Plan 9 + Cirno pic done! This one was hard for me because I wasn't used to raster coloring with shading and had some more correcting to do, but at last!:

Thanks on both accounts! I remembered a conversation Nej and I had wayyy back, about there being too many purple-haired OS-tans ... this sort of became an exercise in showing how much variation can exist in that hair color. : p

I changed TENEX-tan's eye color, and made modifications to her hair style and color but that's about it. TOPS-10-tan is pictured in her modern-day, casual attire - somehow I see her as being a fan of boots and denim and leather jackets. (Heh, she's channeling the greaser spirit.)

When are you going to start uploading the comic, though?
Title: Re: FREE COOKIES!
Post by: Chocofreak13 on September 22, 2012, 06:14:42 pm
someday, lol. i'm still missing some things that i need before i start redrawing it (inking materials, colouring materials, a place to post them (such as a website), etc.). and i'm making the plot more coherent, nailing down details such as setting and character details, etc.

i can upload the old comics if you want, but fair warning, the art and coherency of the comics has improved since they've been drawn. and some details are subject to change (i'm still deciding the name of the city, rival school, one of the characters' names has even changed). :\
Title: Re: FREE COOKIES!
Post by: Aurora Borealis on September 22, 2012, 07:23:32 pm
I don't know if you're looking for your own domain or not, but if you decide to host it on a free webcomic hosting site, SmackJeeves may be your best bet. That's where I host my comic. While I'm curious what you have, I'll be patient and wait for the improved version if that's what you prefer.
Title: Re: FREE COOKIES!
Post by: Chocofreak13 on September 22, 2012, 07:28:37 pm
i'm fine with uploading the old stuff if people want to read it. i'm just giving the disclaimer because later versions will look and sound a bit different.

as for a domain, i've considered hosting through a service like smackjeeves or wordpress, but i'd rather have my own since i was planning on hosting multiple, and i could have features that i'm not sure i could have through a hoster.
what do you think of it, though? i haven't heard from my brother in awhile, and he was supposed to be building it for me, so i might need to look into alternatives. :\
Title: Re: FREE COOKIES!
Post by: Aurora Borealis on September 22, 2012, 07:52:59 pm
SJ allows a user to host multiple comic series, and for each one, you can customize the site layout and design. If you create an account there, all you need to do to create a section for another comic is to go the "My Webcomics" tab, and click on "Create a New Webcomic". There are some other free sites, but SJ allows a great amount of customizability. I've never used WordPress though.
Title: Re: FREE COOKIES!
Post by: Chocofreak13 on September 22, 2012, 08:22:27 pm

Title: Re: FREE COOKIES!
Post by: Aurora Borealis on September 22, 2012, 08:33:59 pm
SJ hosting is free, with two paid options with more features: http://www.smackjeeves.com/premium.php (http://www.smackjeeves.com/premium.php)

I don't think you can put polls in though. The closest you could get is to ask a question in your comic's news updates, and manually count each of the responses.

Title: Re: FREE COOKIES!
Post by: Aurora Borealis on September 22, 2012, 09:42:00 pm
I'm not sure. There is a webcomic advertising service called Project Wonderful that you could draw in revenue from. A lot of users on the site are known to use it.

@Cockleshell: The Vistan on a dinosaur pic is an awesome idea, but Vista is far from being a prehistoric OS! Damn, technology marches on so fast. The jelly dragon looks good too, it looks very jelly-like, but does it jiggle, and worry about getting eaten?

@Bella: The Mertvaya Ruka, Snow Leopard and Cray-1 pic is pure fabulousness! Wonder how they'd do as a team of nuclear winter/snow/ice-based uhh... heroes?

BTSS-tan's redesign looks great! I remember that she was originally created a few years ago and remember some things from her original concept, like her clairvoyant abilities. Do those still apply?

I can't comment much on MLP stuff because I can't keep track, but the coloring looks great.

@Bella: The Mertvaya Ruka, Snow Leopard and Cray-1 pic is pure fabulousness! Wonder how they'd do as a team of nuclear winter/snow/ice-based uhh... heroes?


I think Cray-1-tan would be the leader of the group, but she and Snow Leopard-tan would constantly be getting in battles of ego leading to snow power vs. ice power fights! Meanwhile, Ruka-tan would quietly lurk in the background, only stepping up when her powers were needed (or to break up an especially obnoxious fight between her two teammates).

Quote

She's still clairvoyant, although now I imagine her abilities are a little less crippling and merely just annoying for those around her. I've dug up some more info on the actual system and am trying to work that into her character - I've been writing a wiki bio for her, so once that's up you can lean more about her.

just don't give up, okay? i look back at my old stuff and it makes me want to vomit. but if i hadn't kept at it, i wouldn't be in art school, and i wouldn't be able to make stuff that makes me proud, like this:

i've been drawing since i was way younger than you are now, but i got my first "how to draw manga" book when i was about your age, and i went from there. (twas this (http://www.amazon.com/How-Draw-Manga-Katy-Coope/dp/0439317452/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1356624465&sr=8-1&keywords=how+to+draw+manga+katy+coope) one, drawn by a UK girl~) learning from books doesn't work for everyone, but it worked for me! and even if you can't get it or can't learn from it, just keep trying and study life and the masters! you'll improve with practice. ^^

and also, i made a drawing tutorial that i posted on my DA. if you want a link, i can hook you up. xD

This looks great so far Cockle! :D I'm 'specially digging the detail on her hair and the knives and gloves, and I like the way you made her shirt look a bit armor-like. (And now you have me thinking that some sort of armor / other protective gear would really fit her well, no pun intended.)

Give me some character references and details on the drawing (for instance, would it just be a simple portrait or do you have a scene in mind?) and I'll give it a shot. :3

installed some new art software. i've had the program for at least 5 years now, but haven't really gotten the chance to install/use it till now. it's a little old as programs go, and i have a few beefs with it, but otherwise it's just as glorious as i remember. (i found out about the product when i was 12 or so, and wanted it for years before i got it, so nostalgic value runs high. plus it's still a quality piece, worth the 50 bucks i spent on it at the time.)

Well, it's been a while since I've posted in here:
http://sleepydoodler.deviantart.com/art/Firecrackin-356341116

This is Holly, an OC of mine. I normally draw her at Christmas, a personal tradition of mine to draw that character I drew when I first joined dA. At the very least, it forces me to post something about once a year.
Things got really busy around the holidays this year for me, so this was supposed to be done on Chinese New Year's about 2 weeks ago, but things got in the way again. So I got it in just before the end of yesterday, which was the last day of Chinese New Year's. (In which case, I technically should have replaced the firecrackers with a paper lantern, but it would have been too much work to change at that point, and I wanted to retain some vague sense of being on time. haha)   

On the flip side, it does make for a nice art improvement showcase thingy. Haha, so many of these are rush jobs, which I guess show my true skill at the time, as opposed to some skill that I'm not used to doing yet.

lol, yeah, I was like "where the hell did I get a crapton of messages from?"

I don't really think about what the previous pic of her was. It's just something I've elected to do every holiday season, so it'll always have some holiday theme to it. Hence her name, Holly.
I don't think I even named her until 2 or 3 years after I first drew her. haha

@Kari: I already left my comment on dA, but i'll say it again - I really like that character design and it's eerily close to my concept for Linux Mint-tan. @.@

Title: Re: FREE COOKIES!
Post by: Bella on March 15, 2013, 05:52:33 pm
Maaaaybe. There may be some physical similarities between Mintzy and Linux Mint-tan (though it'd probably mostly be skintone and hair color). ^^;

(http://i.imgur.com/vWEBWAb.png?1)
LINC-tan, PDP-8-tan and (baby) PDP-12-tan.

1) This ship / family is historically accurate (The LINC and PDP-8 computers were packaged and sold together, and then later the PDP-12 was made as a combination of the LINC and PDP-8).
2) Of all the OS-tan factions, somehow I see DEC as the most likely to dabble in making Lesbian Science Babies. (Notorious for pursuing [relatively] trivial-but-advanced / interesting technologies instead of figuring out ways to, er, keep from going belly-up. Not to mention the rather ingrained family structure and that the members probably would have had enough time to raise kids if they so chose...)

Baby PDP-12 is so cute >w<



love it, love it, love it. draw moar bells. and draw more babehs. :00


Thanks guys. ^u^ I've only drawn a few little kids / babies in the past so I'm quite happy that I managed to draw one without it looking like a miniature adult. ^^;

But I'd like to draw more of the LINC-8 Family, so you'll probably get to see Lil' PDP-12-tan again.

I don't think there's anything wrong with that at all. As long as the service is free or cheap (i.e. - no chance of losing money in case you don't get as much traffic as you'd like), it seems like it'd be good idea. :)

you think so, bells? i heard from someone on facebook that it's not as big a moneymaker as it sounds. i figured it'd also annoy the crap out of people to have them constantly there, but if you think it's a good idea, maybe i'll look into it.

love the pics, btw. moar babehs indeed. ^^

When Ucie's Village was destroyed, the stone rhinos only wanted to help, the territorial instincts of Ucie and her tribe, as well as the old war tensions left the crystal dragons feeling defenseless and unwilling to accept help at the time, later that week the monster attacked again. This time killing several leaders and leaving only ten left. Truly needing help the crystal dragons went back to the Rhinos, but they had been humiliated for the last time. The Rhinos took over the home of the dragons,  leaving the dragons devastated and now homeless to boot, the dragons were now on the run. Things never looked more bleak.

do eet. i'm willing to bet that no matter the program you're using you'll find someone here who knows how to use it like second nature. pent's got Paintshop Pro, bella has Photoshop, i have GIMP, and Aurora has Inkscape/Illustrator (not sure which, i think it's inkscape; i have inkscape too but i'm less masterful than her).


i've undertaken a challenge to make a guy on gaia laugh. this is my first attempt, drew it in about an hour and a half.

Aurora uses Inkscape, as did I for a number of years. But yeah Leaf, Choco is right, if you need any pointers on Photoshop or Inkscape I could probably help you out. For the record, I started out doing art on a very simple image editing program (I believe it was called Picture It?), moved up to Photoshop 5 (Or was it 7? I honestly forget at this point), then onto GIMP, Inkscape, and eventually Photoshop CS4, and I've also used SAI a bit as well. It's mostly a matter of finding a program that looks like it will fit your needs, and then messing around with it until you get a handle on all the different options and tools (and looking for tutorials when you're unsure / confused about something).

@Choco: That comic is very cute! I love the kitty's expressions in the first and last panel. >^^<

I use SAI primarily for sketching and coloring and Photoshop primarily for effects.

*facepalm* I do, but it's been gone for quite some time in my home outside London ;^;
Maybe it has been stolen, or lost. If I get the chance I will have a good search for it.

And it was the first gen iPod touch anyway, so I don't think it would work tbh.

in that case i will provide you with the flash game that taught me to play, and a website with some instructions(i haven't read the second website yet but it looks alright):

http://www.gamedesign.jp/flash/hanafuda/hanafuda_e.html
http://hanafubuki.org/koikoi.html
http://hiroi-sekai.com/2012/06/13/the-basics-of-koi-koi-and-the-hanafuda-cards/

for that flash game, be prepared to lose. a lot. and when you finally do win, there's a reverse version that activates, so be prepared to lose a lot AGAIN.

if you do ever find it, let me know, we might be able to get you that app, so we could face off against each other. -w-

in the meantime, i'll be searching for an online version that has 2-player.

Not sure if this goes here or in its own topic, but here goes:

I made a few sprites that fit in a 32x32 pixel square.
(http://i487.photobucket.com/albums/rr237/Alex_Sushiama/me-tan_facing_screen_zps2864dff3.png)(http://i487.photobucket.com/albums/rr237/Alex_Sushiama/95-tan_facing_screen_zpsf6bda8d1.png)(http://i487.photobucket.com/albums/rr237/Alex_Sushiama/83-tan_facing_screen_zps7ff3139b.png)

Sprites are ME-tan, 95-tan, and TI-83Plus-tan, using the design that Aurora drew a few years ago.
I uploaded these and some facing other directions to my gallery here, but I could post them here I anyone thinks I should.

Also, while we may or may not be on the subject, I use Paint.NET for most editing tasks, including these sprites.

Title: Re: FREE COOKIES!

@alex: mm, indeed. the Viru-tans are really underrepresented. did you know that plenty of viruses don't have wiki pages, and that the few Viru-kuns that exist on the wiki weren't unified with the -kuns page at one point? :[

(they look nice, btw, made me laugh ^^ )

@Alex: Those look great! Viru-tan fanart ftw! :D

@Stew and Kari: I haven't seen a Morris Worm-tan either.

For what it's worth, I'd like to make a Creeper (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Creeper_%28program%29)-tan and Elk Cloner (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elk_Cloner)-tan. I even have a few ideas for them. I just haven't gotten around to solidifying those ideas into a coherent concept. : /
Title: Re: FREE COOKIES!
Post by: Chocofreak13 on May 02, 2013, 06:34:46 am
go for it if you want, but it could be a whole seperate project to give more art/personality/recognition to those virus/software-tans/-kuns who don't already have it. there are A LOT of viruses which would fall into that catagory. :\

Post by: Chocofreak13 on May 02, 2013, 06:46:18 am
the thing is, the only people that WOULD be experts on the subject would be Aurora, C-chan, or GussyKenji, and only one of them's here, and that's only half of the time. i get the feeling that if you read the wiki article of a particular virus you'd be able to come up with some kind of personality. :\
Title: Re: FREE COOKIES!
Post by: Alex S on May 02, 2013, 06:54:46 am
If plans for an Elk Cloner-tan don't include antlers that would be sad.

Anyway, there isn't a MacMag (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MacMag)-tan either, though I'd have no real idea of what to do regarding design. I think the Mac House has gotten off kind of lightly in regards to viruses.

I'd be willing to throw my halfway-decent art skills at something, like a new ILOVEYOU-tan design or something.

i prefer to keep old designs whenever possible, so in terms of a "new" iloveyou-tan, it'd be best just to update the old design a bit, imo. :\
Title: Re: FREE COOKIES!
Post by: Alex S on May 03, 2013, 05:22:53 am
I don't remember too much about the current ILOVEYOU/LoveLetter-tan, since the last time I saw it was as an avatar on the wiki a year or two ago. (And I tried looking for it again yesterday in the avatar gallery on the wiki, which appears to be broken.) What I remember was a sort of bonnet/wing hat thing, and since it was an avatar, there really wasn't anything else (like how none of the virus-tan designs have their feet drawn, so I had to guess).

My ideas are a postal worker with a heart motif. And a flamethrower.

Also, currently working on a TI-83 Plus-tan drawing, mostly to test my skills at drawing females. Shading should make it work, even though I do not into anatomy at all...

God it been years since I've sat down and attempted to actually draw something, that ended turning sour so I knew I need to return to my roots and start up just tracing until I build confidence and skill to sketch and then improve.

So here is a little trace of AR21-tan that took some time but was fun, I obviously do not claim this as my own work.

I very proud of this one.

I'm pretty sure you've met Ucie before, I posted somethings of her a while ago.

Short character Bio:

The last of her kind, when Ucie came to earth she lost her memory of her previous life, which was well enough due to the fact that everyone she loved was dead. She crash landed on Simon and he died, she revived him and walla Bio. She can travel though dimensions with Simon due to and ability she gained during the Nexus series (a pet project we had in high school). And for a while she has been staying in the Pokemon universe, where she fell in love with a Flygon.

nice, dude, real nice. but what is she doing with her dress, holding it up so she won't trip while she walks? (i have to do that all the time going up stairs since i like wearing long skirts. ><; )
Title: Re: FREE COOKIES!
Post by: Balrith on June 16, 2013, 08:14:44 pm
It's supposed to be something like that though I'm pretty bad at drapery--especially with such a weird perspective. It's probably not going to look right even after I redraw and polish the lines.

Maybe I should come back to this one if I get better.

Edit:

Who am I kidding? I don't have that kind of patience.

I know it looks like 95's standing on 3.1's dress right now. I'll figure something out eventually.    maybe


but references are cheeeeeaaaating :C

jk I really should do more studies from reference.
Title: Re: FREE COOKIES!
Post by: Chocofreak13 on June 17, 2013, 06:45:32 am
references aren't cheating, they're studying, duh. >>;

as for 95, it looks more like she's pressing against 3.1 and the dress is getting sandwiched in between. like it's scrunched against a wall. xD

curious, why is 3.1's hand like that? is she just contemplative, is she catching something, or is she maybe activating some sort of power? :0

Hmm don't really want to make any promises. Probably contemplative/catching something. I'd rather the viewer draw their own conclusion once they see the finished product. The way I see it, if an artist has to go back and explain a picture with words then the artist failed. That being said, I'm pretty sure most of the things I churn out are failures.

I did a little coloring today though.
(http://i.imgur.com/V5p8lxI.jpg)

Wonder how it looks on other people's monitors. I colored it on my new monitor but it looks really desaturated on my crappy lappy screen in comparison. Hope that's just the extra $$ at work and not an error in color calibration.

The DEC-tans (and company) as Portal characters.

Inspired by a comment that Stew made about DEC being the IRL equivalent of Aperture Science, what with their shared tendency to throw science at to see what sticks, crazy awesomeness and almost-comic-in-scope blundering incompetence.

See if you can recognized the characters and then go over here (http://bellacielo.deviantart.com/art/Digital-Science-401647576) to check if you were right!

Post by: Penti-chan on September 21, 2013, 06:19:40 am
I swear, Stew is like a fountain of fanart ideas. You can take anything random he says like that and make art from it.

...and now I want to see something created from the quote "Duck Dynasty is Evangelion for rednecks" -w-;

Title: Re: FREE COOKIES!

GET IN THE ROBOT GIANT METAL DUCK SHINJI DUDE WHO LOOKS LIKE A ZZ TOP IMPERSONATOR.

For what it's worth, he made that comment like a year ago. I didn't actually comprehend it until I played Portal 2 and I've been trying to do something with it ever since. ;^;

Not to mention the fact that I seem to be only drawing DEC-family OS-tans these days (Well, the DEC-tans + Whirlwind + SAGE). It's like 5 years after the DEC-tans were invented I finally hit my stride drawing them. 0.0
Title: Re: FREE COOKIES!

and would SAGE still be Potato!GlaDOS or would that be relegated to someone else? :0"
Title: Re: FREE COOKIES!
Post by: Bella on September 21, 2013, 07:44:56 am
Yes you do~~ ^.^

Hmm, I wanted to include the Companion Cube, but I didn't know who should represent it. Originally (before I played Portal 2) I assumed it would be PDP-8-tan (because of the PDP-8 - LINC-tan connection and all that), but PDP-8-tan ended up taking Wheatley's place because it's a better fit for her. This is one of those cases where I'm outta ideas. :C

As for SAGE and POTaDOS ... hmmmmm. Well, GLaDOS became POTaDOS when she was disconnected from her mainframe and the Enrichment Center control system, so I guess you could draw a parallel with prime-of-her-life, full-power SAGE-tan and SAGE-tan after she was disconnected from her radar network and became a wanderer. So yeah, I believe SAGE-tan would represent POTaDOS as well. -w-

My first instinct was PDP-16-tan, but AGC would work really well... even if she isn't a DEC-tan, she is kinda/sorta related to SAGE. >>

Again, even though she isn't a DEC I like this idea. :3

Always the kind of characters I like. Look at Twinkle, from Bust-A-Move '99; you see a cute court jester girl...and you will understand fear as a flood your side of the screen with rainbow bubbles >:3

Working on a updated style WinPho tan drawing. Since im not good with making the basic figure, i used Nanao Bing as a help, but after i had the basic figure down, the rest i've done so far is my own work.

I present: Metra! A slightly updated WP-tan for WP8. :)

I took a WP7-tan i found online, used nanao bing as a base, threw in some Kyoko from Yuru Yuri, and added a Microsoft logo to boot.

Whatdya guys think?

Pardon any anomalies or errors. Im not the best at color and shading. ;w;

I enjoy the tiles as buttons on her coat. The colors are also nice and appropriate, although I believe the rainbow in her eyes could be windows logo colors, it is acceptable as is.

She does seem a little too friendly to me though. Why is she looking at me like that..

N-not that I think a windows tan is nice, b-baka.

The rainbow eyes was inspired by the colored tiles eyes of Yu & Ai. However, i tried a more elegant execution with the gradient transition of colors. Its meant to represent her customizability and multiple color schemes.

And i figured windows phone-tan would be energetic and cheeky, as well as well dressed, but would fall flat in areas she's lacking in (representing the os' fun and bouncy interface and attention to app/ui design, but lack of things like a file chooser and unified notifications, etc...)

Character Sheet for Metra :)

Thats where the bow came from. And in ways i see winphotan being similar. Just like Kyoko was awesome at making mangas and art, but fell short in thinking things through and was naive at times, i think wptan would be the same way, being really great at what she can do, but fall short in other things and have a sense of naivety.

I also see WPtan being good at photography, because lumia 1020.

What does everyone think of her? Im especially proud of the first image, despite its flaws

Looks promising, Dusti. I like the colors. They fit really well.

Suggestions:
She could use a few more detailing embellishments. Maybe add a few highlighting white or teal stripes to some areas. White stripes could help the white lapel stand out a little less, while also representing the white text. Also the bottom of the blazer and/or the skirt look a bit too simple and generic.

Lastly, I'm not sure how to implement this attractively, but WP8 looks like teal rectangles outlined with black. Maybe try making larger sections of WP8-tan's clothing teal.

I agree with balrith. Also, her hair and coat are pretty similar, so maybe lighten the hair just a smidge so it doesn't all blend together. :3

Dammit, I thought I posted here back when you put these up. :( 

Anyway, I'm really digging the character and costume design here. gj! :D

I was going to comment that her skirt could be alternating 'tiles' but decided against it. I see that has already been established by your own discretion, though.

Good work.

Im contemplating whether i should backtrack that decision myself. It adds color, but at the same time, the skirt looks a tad off...

Anyways, thank you.

well, they don't alternate, really, they're arranged into a pattern.

but maybe you could make them darker? or is that colour significant?

I believe the teal-blue color is representative of a color windows 8 uses often, though I of course have no experience of the exact color it would use.

And yes, I suppose they're not exactly alternating as there are two blacks between the teal-blues.

Exactly. I figured a pattern would be decent.

Good idea. A darker variant could work. I still Wonder if it would look good though. Perhaps the whole skirt should be a (darker) teal blue?

if you're worried about it looking too dark, lighten the dark parts for a more unified look. :\

I actually was worried about parts being too light. Im conflicted between making the outfit stand out and use more color, and having the outfit be more matching and elegant.

Anyways, here is Metra design v2:

I came up with an idea for Security Essentials-tan / Defender-tan




EDIT:

A woman in a white lab coat, with a stethoscope, thin framed glasses, an id badge with bricks and a magnetic strip, a defender icon hairpin, and a serious demeanor.

might be a good stand-in for MS's built in security system. just don't make her blonde, she'd look too close to McAfee-tan.
