Title: 7-tan(Noob's Design)(loli!)
Post by: VonDaab on October 19, 2008, 07:56:46 am
Oh, hmm...
Well here's my opinion:
Visually, Windows 7 looks very similar to Vista, it even uses the same core as Vista. So I'd suggest that the Windows 7 design would lend some small details from Vistas design (now to figure out from which Vista design).

Color scheme consists mostly from light blue and turquoise.
And the start bar is identical to Vista.

Hmm... can't really say more because I havent really researched Windows 7 so much...

I did *insert evil laugh here*

NOTE: The following description assumes that Microsoft doesn't screw up.

NOTE2: A lot of info about Windows 7 can be found at vista123.net

Name: 7-tan or Sev-tan (Microsoft said that Windows 7 was the official name, probably their marketing experts thought Vienna sounded too much like Vista for comfort).

Apparent age: 16 or 17 (older than 3.1 sama and younger than XP anyway).

Hair color: Blue/cyan or maybe even white.

Eyes: probably blue (or green).

Wears: Her clothing is similar to that of chivistan in style, but much more modest and conservative.
(this because, although she still has Aero, Windows 7 GUI will not be subject to any big graphical improvement, so this means that Microsoft isn't betting it all on the aesthetics like before). Her dress/coat thing is also a (dark) shade of blue instead of plain black. She also wears a ribbon to symbolise the extensive use of the "ribbon interface".

Info/Personality: Windows-tans are pretty much a collection of anime "types" but there's an anime stereotype that hasn't been used yet and that would fit 7-tan perfectly: the "teen genius".
Why a teen? Because the OS is being developed at a much faster pace than Vista, there are increasing rumors of a release in mid-2009. Why a genius? Because MS is developing it with the one objective to be the fast, quick, reliable OS that Vista didn't manage to be.

For example:

-She's higly knowledgable and always keeps up to date with everything.
(Update to last version during installation, automatic update of Windows live games to lates version, "device information retrieval" service that downloads information for your hardware and displays it to you, Driver protection which prevents installation of drivers which cause stability problems)
(Note: All this functions can be turned OFF)

-She values privacy and security.
("business" editions have "BitLocker" disk encription, which encripts all the files written on the hard drive)

-She excelles at multitasking.
(Microsoft is both going to finally "evolve" the taskbar and to optimize parallel processing on many-core computers).

-She's open to innovation.
(Will support (multi)touch computing, pen computing, cloud computing, etc...)

-She's less bossy than Vistan.
(The UAC will be toned down a bit and Windows-7 will come with less Microsoft applications (which you will still be able to download for free from Windows Live, though))

Other info:

-Wakes up fast and works well even if she's sleepy. There are rumors she's also a sleepwalker.
(MS objective is to have Windows 7 boot in 15 seconds on 40% of the machines and to boot in a "limited functionality mode" in less than 8 seconds).

-Her "assets" are smaller than Vis-tan's not only because she's a teenager, but also because she will probably need less RAM (MS would like Windows 7 to run on EEEPCs). Therefore, she also eats less.

-Despite everything, Vis-tan is some sort of "sensei figure" for her (togheter with more 'dependable' OS-tans such as 2000-tan) and she is possibly the only one of the Windows sisters to call Vis-tan "One-sama" Vis-tan, depressed about her lack of success, is more than happy to accept this role as her new mission, and to pass on her knowledge to her youger sister, while warning her not to make the same mistakes she did.
(MS, rather than classifying Vista as an 'accident' people should forget about (like Me), has confidence in its potential and considers Windows 7 some sort of "major upgrade" for Vista, "Vista how it should have been" or "Vista, but better". If Windows Seven  succeeds, in a couple years time people will only remember Vista as "a step on the road to Seven".

May the heavens forgive me, I replied to that post suggesting my design instead. The last thing we need, IMO, is a design that doesn't fit becoming official on Wakachan.


BTW, after PDC 2008 I'm half expecting the Futaba and Nijiura guys to come up with their own designs. I was hoping for one 'universal' design but since she's supposed to be "inspired" by vistan and there are half a dozen versions of vistan out there... it's not that probable.

*double posts*

I made a 'noob design' of Windows 7 too. It's a crude drawing (the hands look especially ugly), but I'm only posting it so you'd give me your opinions on the design. Got any ideas? Please tell. My design is too uninspired/unoriginal? Again, do tell. Wanna draw a better version of it? Go ahead. ^^

Concerning the drawing, IMO the head looks fine, and the body looks fine - it's when they're put together that things look a bit off.

The design's much better, though - well thought-through, concerning what we know of the OS.

But, I guess we'll be having to redo this entire process each time there's something new about 7 released...yare yare. -.-

Only if it's something important, and considering that it's already in the "feature lock" phase according to Microsoft, I doubt I'll have to change it that much.

Well, sums it up...or rather, the throat is a bit too long, and the chin it's attached to is just not in the right position. So yeah. Not too big though, that's ok.

I'm not gonna go into details with the anatomy, so I'll just point out the critical errors:

Head looks like its too much forward, or more like the throat is getting narrower at top. Needs to be more tubular, but not a perfect tube.

Collarbones, now here comes in the real study of anatomy. Collarbones "start" from the top of the sternum, and end at the shoulder, connecting with the femur(arm bone).

The fingers really look slightly like sausages of somesort...


I'm pretty bad at critiquing character designs, as my own are pretty awful.

Indeed. According to today's anime, COLLARBONES are more vital to a woman/loli's charm points than her breasts are! PAY ATTENTION!

Uhm... I do appreciate your comments, and will keep in mind your pointers about neck and collar bones (i have to say that the neck originally connected in a better position, but that got screwed up while drawing the hair. When I realised my mistake, I had already colored the drawing...my bad.) but there's a reason if I posted this in the '7-tan noob concept thread' and not in my "art" thread. I could point out dozens of anatomy errors myself (arms, legs, waist, etc), but I just wanted to illustrate the concept without spending too much time drawing a design that could have been classified as unoriginal. Now, if you say it's good, I could spend some more time doing a -real- drawing. ^^

Yeah, Nuker, I understood that you did that drawing just for the character design. Still, I see nothing wrong in pointing out errors.
But as I earlier said, I'm not good at character designs. But what I can say about your design is that it looks really good. I'd prefer your design over the AlexReetz's version.

But you know, character design is hard to critique, as mostly its about personal likings. There are no "correct ways" when it comes to character design. One good example is Vista and its 9000 different versions, every one of them customized for individual artists liking.

I know, but I'd really like it if we could all work togheter to create "forum designs" of the new Os-tans (such as 7, Snow Leopard, etc.) so if you (or anyone here) have got a different idea of what Vienna-tan should look like, for example, I'd really like to hear it, because it may be better than mine.

So here's my try on 7-tan.
I deviated pretty much from your design. Made her very 2k-ish for some reason.
But this is really, really conceptual.

Post by: Nuker on November 02, 2008, 09:01:39 am
Okay, let's see.

Hair: check
Eye color: well... blue works too. check
Windows logo and 7 logo: I like your windows logo but as for the windows logo I thought I'd give her a pair of 7-shaped hearrings. It'd make for a nice change from hairclips and the like.
Dress: I did think of 7-tan wearing some kind of swimwear-like thing too but I decided against it because, considering I was already giving her a (long) coat, she would have looked too much like 2000-tan. I like the boots though.
Breasts: We'll just have to wait to see how much memory Vienna requires, but so far people who have tried it say it can run on a EEEPC with 1Gb of system memory using only half of it, so I think they'd have to be smaller.
Age: That's pretty much up to how you envision her. I drew her younger because she's going to have a short development time, but you can draw her older to represent the system's "maturity". I opted for a "teen genius" kind of look to differentiate her from 2000-tan, which is of the "dependable woman" kind, but if you can make her look unique in another way by all means do it.

All in all, not a bad concept at all. You've offered me some inspiration to "evolve" my design. If you want to borrow some ideas from me, go ahead. It'd be nice if we got the designs to merge. ^^


If you want some "source material", the anime characters which inspired my 7-tan design (both profile and drawing) are:

Hitsugaya Toshirou (Bleach)
Skuld (Ah! My Goddess)
Kaname Chidori and Teletha/Teresa Testarossa (Full Metal Panic)

I also drew some vague inspiration from "Matrix"

Okay, a quick remake.
Bit less of the transparency stuff, only the sleeves now.

Also, I really dont know, but I cant draw small people.
Have to try this again sometimes.

Post by: NejinOniwa on November 02, 2008, 10:45:09 am
Well, except those (freaky!) eyes, I think number 2 is quite a bit better; #1 does look a bit too much like both earlier Win-tans AND just another Vis-tan to make me comfy - this one is more unique in its taste and feel.

More later, now I've got a dog going on and about to take care of, so yaaan~

Geez, "Im in ur thread, spamming remakes!"


Edit: Just as a notice:
Her jacket is a very short one, just to make it different from Win 2k's long jacket. 'Short' as in ending already at the chest height.

Post by: Aurora Borealis on November 02, 2008, 12:50:46 pm
Great work, everyone!

@Nuker: Your design of Windows 7-tan resembles 2k-tan and Vistan but with some clever twists to it such as the pockets, multicolored buttons and transparency on the shoulders and ends of her coat- all of which are symbolic and very stylish!

@VonDaab: Your designs of Windows 7-tan are very cute! The first one is very cute and professional looking (although a bit too much like 2K-tan as it was mentioned), the second one is very sassy and edgy- I like! ;010 But the third one is absolutely adorable, and my favorite! ^_^ And I like the bunny ears too, bunny girls are cool!
---

Largely based off both artists' designs, here is my take on Windows 7-tan!

Hmm, that's a really good combination, Aurora.
I dont know why I drew those gray shoulder "thingies", when the jacket would've been fine how you drew it without the "thingies".

Also, it looks so crisp and clean when vectorized.

Good work.

Nah, I like those shoulder "thingies". I think they're cool. ^^

Now I'm gonna work on a combination of my design with your third design and aurora's design (both of which are beyond awesome). Not sure if I'll follow the bunnygirl trend, though. Instead, some of the hair should be styled to resemble horns, because this is an evolution of the longhorn project (See chivistan's hair for reference)

Ehm, okay, another double post. Does this forum display edited post as if someone posted a message in the thread? If so I won't double post again.

So... I was drawing doodles like there was no tomorrow, getting some inspiration from your design when I realized that to distance your 7-tan design from 2000-tan's, you either gave her a shorter coat, or a jacket. And I got an idea: what if I gave her a longer coat instead? Long like a matrix-style trenchcoat, or even a bit longer?
And while I was re-drawing her, a thought struck me:

Windows Seven may be a very good OS that's being developed quickly to replace Vista as soon as possible, but that isn't all. Windows 7 is being developed to reconquer the market share that Vista has lost to Linux and MacOS, and it's being designed to be extremely competitive in every situation, ranging from netbooks (runs with less than 1Gb of RAM) to business (Disk and USB encription, better protection sistem, better authorisation management) to research stations with lots of processors (7's new parallel processing system can support up to 256 cores), so
that means Sev-tan is not just a teen genius, but also a killing machine.

Which wears glasses.
And (in my new concept) a Voip headset.
Which is always up to date with everything.
And can adapt to every situation.
A killing machine that, thanks to Live Services and Network libraries, can be everywhere at once.
And wears matrix style clothing.

Oh crap, she's either an Agent or the Chosen One!

You may think she's just a sweet and intelligent girl, and usually she's like that, but piss her off and you'll discover her secret identity: Agent Vienna, a cold and ruthless killing machine that has been trained in the fine arts of combat since her early childhood. Her weapon of choice doesn't really matter when she knows 30 ways to kill you with her bare hands. XD

This doesn't cancel her previous profile, it just gives her an additional "berserker mode".

And now, here are my doodles which totally don't do justice to the concept (I think a real, serious drawing of her has the potential of being seriously badass).
I also made a white hair version: tell me which one looks best.

I'm interested now. I'll see if I can scratch something together as well.

How about this: her glasses and the trasparent parts of her coat are made in a secret material made in Redmond which is normally transparent for increased cuteness but turns black/dark blue when she goes berserk for increased badass. And since Windows 7 features an improved "theme" personalisation capability, this is not only cool, but also symbolic.  ;010

Nice job everyone! I really like Nuker's design of Windows 7-tan, and I like Aurora and VonDaab's takes on her. We might, might, just have a chance at making this design semi-canon-ish at this rate (sorta like Leopard-tan). I love her bunny ears and all the included transparency, it fits the design well.

Though I can't really comment on her personality, cause, well, I haven't researched Windows 7, don't care to, and don't plan to. Lawl.

I can't guarantee I'll be able to see the final 7-tan cause I only have 10 days left.  But as long as you're giving it your all, I'll be thrilled.  -v-

I dont know, but IMO the whole "number 7 everywhere" is pretty disturbing. Like they can't tell she's Win7 without them.
Title: 7-tan(Noob's Design)(loli!)
Post by: NejinOniwa on November 23, 2008, 01:51:22 pm
Well, that's true. IMO the tattoo and the boot clips or whatever should be cut; the sword and the shirt-thing are pretty good ideas, though.
Title: 7-tan(Noob's Design)(loli!)
Post by: Nuker on November 23, 2008, 02:46:08 pm
That's cool, but is that a recent drawing? Because the color scheme is all wrong... way too much yellow. And yeah, way too much 7s. Seems like they're afraid someone wouldn't recognise her otherwise. And that's a bad thing, because it means the design is not 'unique' enough.

The sword and the 'shirt' i like, though.

All in all their '-tan' has potential, but needs improvement. I'm optimistic though, the +Nijiura+ guys rarely disappoint.

I think we should stick to our design for now (maybe taking some inspiration from the nijiura design). That way, if dozens of random 7-tan design start popping up (as happened with Vis-tan), we'll still have our "forum design" to refer to.
Title: 7-tan(Noob's Design)(loli!)
Post by: Aurora Borealis on November 23, 2008, 02:59:57 pm
I agree with the three of you. I like the 7-shaped sword and shirt, but the tattoo and boot clip things are just overkill x__x. Also needs moar blue in the design.

That design may have been proposed before the first Windows 7 screenshots were leaked. I've seen other Windows 7-tan designs before that are not accurate to the color scheme at all.
Title: 7-tan(Noob's Design)(loli!)

You'll notice her hairstyle in the Nijiura design is also based off of the 7 shape.  
I like the change to the blue cape, but maybe they should have stuck with the light gray gloves and boots.

Well, that's true, but it's subtle enough to escape you if you don't look for it.
It's true that the YELLOW EVERYWHERE! stuff is a bit aggravating, though.

Wait. Wut. Why is the +Nijura+ Windows 7-tan design so yellow? And Loli-ish? Oo

I like her sword, hairdo and outfit. But the OSC design, all and all, a lot better. She's cuter, more mature, and the color scheme is a lot more relevant.

Woah... I guess that people DO get into making the '-tans' right from the "Milestone" stages... should have noticed that from the many Longhorn designs.

Anyways... I read the whole thread, here's my thoughts on things...

OP's Design: Cute.... not the "WOW" kind of drawing abilities, but cute.

Nuker's Design: That's fairly close to what I was thinking... and you even have good sense of representation.

VonDaab: Going classic are we? lol That's a nice touch of 2k there... though the real resemblance should be more Vista-oriented. Still, good one there dude.

+Nijiura+'s Design: Eeeh... I don't like it. Somehow, it looks to me like they took Naruto and Konahamaru and made them do some kind of weird "Fusion Style: OS-tan Jutsu" or something. Hmm... maybe it's their way of saying, "hey, it's Vista, but better." They somehow failed though... too much yellow... way too many sevens (as if we didn't know it was Win7-tan)... oh, and ninjas are so last OS.

But yeah, that might change as the OS comes to full release, like what happened with Vista.

...
...
...

Anyways, I also noted you people were pondering on 7's personality... I can do research on 7 to see how much of it can be applied into the designs... dunno' how accurate my info would be until official release though.

EDIT: At this point... I still am thinking what Shichiko (7-tan) should look like... maybe I will have my hand doddle it up to see how my thoughts compare to your designs people. Might not show them though. lol

Post by: Nuker on December 28, 2008, 11:11:39 am
Thanks. I still think the design could be improved though. That's why I'd really like to see your doodles/ideas. 7-tan is meant to be a 'community design', so yeah, if you have some drawings please show them, it's not like you can draw ings can be worse than the ones I posted, anyway.

(BTW, I've praticed, and my drawing skills -have- improved, but full-body drawings are still a real pain to draw. But I'm slowly getting better at them, too.)

Since MS will release the public beta in a month or two, I think it'd be nice to have some sort of beta-version of 7-tan ready by then. What do you think?
Title: 7-tan(Noob's Design)(loli!)
Post by: VonDaab on December 28, 2008, 12:10:19 pm
Oh you're still alive. Thats good to hear.

Beta 7-tan? sure, why not. Though, what do you mean with a "Beta-version"?

Yeah, I have been busy with my uni exams (and I still am, don't question the mess that is the Italian university system if you don't want to get headaches) but I'm very much alive, thank you.

By beta-version, I don't mean a special version of 7-tan, but a 7-tan design that takes into account all the features of the beta and that may change when windows 7 is released.

Are you sure? The system requirements are these:

1 GHz 32-bit or 64-bit processor;
1 GB of system memory;
16 GB of available disk space;
support for DirectX 9 graphics with 128MB memory (in order to enable Aero theme);
DVD-R/W drive;
Internet connection (to download the Beta and get updates)

This is what my comp says:
1.8Ghz = yes.
512Mb shared RAM = no.
500GB HDD = yes.
64Mb VRAM = no.

So... for me to run that, I'd need a lot more ram and a better Graphics card.(which in this PC is integrated, so no chance for update)

I defiantly think this is the sort of aroma 7-tan should have. Yellow hair, goes with the win 7 feel. Skinny, cause win7 uses bugger all system resources, fit as win7 is fast, even faster than xp. And happy. Win7 is a pleasure to use.

QuoteSkinny, cause win7 uses bugger all system resources,


You call running on a netbook using only 386Mb of RAM "using all system resources"? Personally I'm running the 64bit version of the OS with 3Gb of RAM, and the OS itself never uses more than 1Gb.


Btw, I like the second and the third Futaba design. I think the third design, in particular, has the right colour scheme (which is the same one of the OSC design). And now I -know- I must use that 7-shaped shirt. It's like... the only common trait of all the designs?

So... I've been coming up with various ideas on how to use the 7-shaped shirt in the OSC design. Since I managed to fix my scanner (it didn't work under Vista but it does under 7, yay!) I thought I'd post a sketch of my idea.

I didn't colour it because I have several different color schemes in mind and I'd like to hear your opinion on them.

The sketch:
(http://img212.imageshack.us/img212/2843/prova3pa0.png)

My ideas:
-the coat actually has sleeves, they're just transparent. However a sleeveless version of the coat would also be cool.
-I think the 7-shirt should be silver, but it could as well be blue, or black.
-The 7-shirt is partially hidden by the coat, so, to show that it is actually shaped like a 7, the "Taskbar" should be completely transparent and the coat should be a semi-transparent blue.
-Obviously all the transparent stuff would become black when 7-tan goes 'berserk'
-Glasses or not?


Ideas, comments and suggestions are appreciated.

Post by: Kiso on January 24, 2009, 11:12:51 am
Hmmm.... nice Ragnarok Online IMG, Tycho... though I have reservations on using that type of clothing and/or color scheme.

Hmm... now, seeing as I can't get my hands on 7 (this PC I have I don't want to risk, plus I lack broadband for a while)... I might have to draw conclusions from common knowledge and common sense rather than my keener and technical observational skills.

In the case of 7-tan, Nuker, the default theme colors of the OS should be standard for her appearance, but seeing as you can change the theme's color scheme to your liking, the '-tan should be able to take on multiple colors schemes and attires. This would make the OS-tan as fashionable as XP-tan should have been. But then again, I am not sure if you can modify the windows shell to change the appearance of the UI. Yes, she should at least change clothes color every once in a while, if not able to part with them altogether.

One thing that I have seen is that the OS is indeed fast and more resource conscious, and might get better with time. 7-tan might go that same way as well, besting Vistan's performance with less effort... and that's not counting that she's more multitask-friendly. So maybe she's physically between XP-tan and Vistan... if not including 2k-tan into the mix.

I took those many things into consideration when making my own design... but so far have come close nothing concrete, as I seems to make slight changes to everything. Hmm.... I think I will go the Microsoft way on this and build up from Vista to see where I end up.

I won't criticize drawings at all because mine are only stick figures, you can imagine. But I'd sy this design is becoming very popular. I need to try it too and see if I can make something or mess up. But yes they look good like a mix of; call it 27 Tan a mix of 2K and 7 Tan.

How about a monocle instead of glasses. Thou that'll make her look like McAfee Tan which also has one. But different from all previous Windows Tans who none have a monocle. But yes also a monocle would detour 7 to be a little more of a proud little girl since monocles are seen on aristhocratic situations.

Subtle is best.  Do you see other tan walking around with swords shaped like their name, or outfits shaped like their name?  or being shaped tottaly like their name??

answer is no.  

Most of the tans, the best tans, have not much more then a hair pin or such with their system name.  3.1 has the pin on her ribbon, doskitty has the collar, 95 her sash, the 98s hair pins,  ME something stiched on her apron, XP hair pin..  Subtle is the key, less subtle says trying too hard.

Yeah, I have no problem saying that Vondaab's design is one of the best I've seen yet.

Aurora: That sketch rocks. Scythes? I don't know why I didn't think of that... they -are- seven shaped, after all. I want to se MOAR pics from you.

VonDaab: the new drawings you posted are awesome, 7-tan looks really cute in those. As for the last drawing... Yeah! Killing machine!

Nejin: Yeah, it does look like 2000-tan, but hey, even chiVistan has a coat-thing, (Actually, a lot of -tans do) and still manages to look different. I think we could manage that too. Besides, 7-tan -has- to look a bit like 2000-tan: they're both higly reliable system that replaced "failures" (even if 2000 was actually released a bit before Me).

Still, we have to make sure 7-tan is different enough from her sisters, and we could do this by:

-giving her a semi-transparent coat that changes colour with her mood (like Kiso suggested)

-or by giving her matrix style clothing like I suggested before

-or, taking inspiration from Aurora's pic, we could give her grim reaper-style clothing

-or we could expand the original idea of "jump list pockets and taskbar buttons" and give her some sort of hi-tech gadgeteer coat with lots of accessories and stuff

-we could replace those glasses with sunglasses, which make her look stylish when she's "normal" and make her more intimidating when she goes berserk

-or we could make her eyes turn red when she goes into berserk mode

-we could even make her hair white...

Or any combination of the above...

Come on, guys! It's brainstorm time!

It's not a double-personality thing. It's just that MS designed 7 to re-conquer the market share they have lost to Linux and Mac because of Vista. So I get the feeling she should be almost as much of a fighter as 95-tan. That, coupled with all the DRM stuff she inherited from Vista, should give you an idea of why we're talking about 'berserk'.

And yes, I know that was a rethorical question. I answered anyway because I'm bored... :P

Well, not much to say, logic logic is logical, so Z'PRVD.
And remember that even 95-tan has her berserker mode, as well. Maybe not as powerful, but still.

DRM would make for a great "limiter" for preserving abilities, like, RELEASE MY TRUE POWER mode or something. Since, presuming one can disable it (or just we say she can, anyway), it would lift all system resources to usable mode, making way for LOTS of ROW ROW FIGHTAN POWAR. Berserk mode, I dunno, but maybe some mix of those.

Windows 7's resource management is already amazing (They got the 64bit version running on a virtual machine with 512Mb of RAM, and the OS ran perfectly fine using only 216MB of RAM and running almost as fast as XP 32bit) so it makes sense she'd wear a "limiter" to control her power...

Actually, it's not what I had in mind... a Yandere is creepy to begin with, a Nice one becomes scary only when seriously pissed off...

And yes, unlike 95-tan who goes into rage-mode, she'd be more agent-like and robotic.

Or we could just decide to ignore the normal/berserk thing entirely and make her a badass agent/grim-reaper from the start.

In my latest sketch of the two Windows 7-tans, one of them was actually wielding some tomahawks which I think would suit her even better than the scythe because tomahawks are rather small, lightweight and can be thrown.

For her personality I like the idea of her being inventive and turning berzerk when the need to arises. She'd also be resourceful because of Windows 7's ability to run well on lower-end hardware that Vista probably wouldn't be able to run on at all.

I liked the scythe, though... wait, I have an idea. Since 7-tan's pretty resourceful and smart, I guess she'd be able to make a lightweight titanium telescopic scythe. It'd be as small as a tomahawk, but she'd be able to "extend" it until it becomes a huge reaper scythe to slay enemies with.

Err... nope... not really... I think.

Although this is a concept/design thread, such comments could be useful to a final design... if not, we would have never seen "system freeze" on Me-tan. lol

Anyways I felt like showing you one of my hundreds of concepts regarding the '-tan in question?

*dances to Hatsune Miku's songs while prepping the image*

EDIT: There I leave it... a 7-tan design.

I think I messed up somewhere. I went for only small visual changes from Vista like it was done for the OS... but I think it looks too different. Also, because I did not feel like drawing when I started, I decided to trace one of Vondaab's designs... but I scanned it upside down and flipped it, which makes it look like I didn't. lol ~__~; Anyways... I was reading onto many of the comments made to see if the M$ way (listening to peeps on Win7 needs) paid off... but I think I messed up.

I am starting to think that I have watched and read too much 'Mahou Sensei Negima!', Saber Marionette and mecha-related series. O_O;

Anyways... your thoughts and feelings are welcome... although it may or not influence me to show another.

Despite the similarities to Neptune-tan, I think Kiso is on to something here. We could try to take that design and work on it to make it less mecha-like and more gritty and down to earth, but still badass... after all Microsoft put way more effort in improving performance than eye candy this time...

We could make her hair white, and combine Kiso's design with Aurora's latest sketch. That could work...
Title: 7-tan(Noob's Design)(loli!)
Post by: Kiso on February 09, 2009, 08:53:39 am
Hmm... although you were right on saying that Microsoft did not put much effort on interface as much as performance... I actually just made a play on their work.

I wanted to retain some visual elements that appeared on some of the Vistans (the suit somewhat resembles the hot-looking Chivistan) and plan on doing more more Vistan concept borrows (like Vistake's scythe probably, thinking also on the aero bike/broom/whatever thing), but applied to look more like 7's own rather than a Vista borrow. But I won't go just there... I also want to use stuff that appeared on other 7-tan concepts. That way, I will see whether or not I had really messed up or not when I decided to "listen to what others had to say".

Hear others. You might dump my idea if its worthless in any case. If it's good tell me so. How about making a slight design between win 2K and Vista but something that can help is adding designs on the applications 7 carries instead of the little change on Interface. Might be a good idea. I think.

I actually saw that before... it's an "old" drawing in the Image Collector site thing. I actually like it... much better than the kimono-wearing, dark-haired girl. In fact, my first personal concepts took mayor reference on that design.

However, I don't like the 7-shaped things around her ears, and someone seemed to have missed the Aero features for Win7... makes it look kind of incomplete... somehow. Still... 7-tan could use a diverse wardrobe, referencing the different many different versions of the software, but only being just one character in her multiple facets. Yes... those are back:

Quote from: "Wikipedia"
Windows 7 Starter
   An option for "lower-cost" laptops or "price-sensitive" consumers, with limitations: the Aero Glass theme is not included, it will only be sold in a 32-bit edition, and the system is limited to running only three applications simultaneously. This will be available pre-installed on computers through system integrators or computer manufacturers.

Windows 7 Home Basic
   Windows 7 Home Basic will only be available in emerging markets such as Brazil, People's Republic of China, India, Indonesia, Mexico, Pakistan, the Philippines, and Thailand. It will not be available in countries such as Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Israel, New Zealand, the United States, and the United Kingdom. Windows 7 Home Basic can run an unlimited number of applications, but some Aero Glass options are excluded along with several new features.

Windows 7 Home Premium
   This edition contains additional features aimed at the home market segment, such as Windows Media Center, Windows Aero and touch-screen controls.

Windows 7 Professional
   This edition is targeted toward enthusiasts and small business users. It includes all the features of Windows 7 Home Premium, and adds the ability to participate in a Windows Server domain. Additional features include operating as a Remote Desktop server, location aware printing, Encrypting File System, and Presentation Mode.

Windows 7 Enterprise targets the enterprise segment of the market and will be sold through volume licensing. Additional features include support for Multilingual User Interface (MUI) packages, BitLocker Drive Encryption, and UNIX application-support. Not available through retail or OEM channels, this edition will be distributed through Microsoft Software Assurance (SA). As a result it includes several SA-only benefits, including a license allowing the running of multiple virtual machines, access to Virtual PC Express, and activation via VLK.

Windows 7 Ultimate
   Windows 7 Ultimate combines all the features of the other editions, including Enterprise, but unlike that edition will be available to home users on an individual license basis. Unlike Windows Vista Ultimate, the Windows 7 Ultimate edition will not include the Windows Ultimate Extras feature or any exclusive features.


Hmm... although my idea would sound better than having to make one '-tan for each edition of the OS, it may contradict some of the other editions. However, seeing as how the entire OS will be fully installed from the beginning, it's just a matter of purchasing a new license and you get more features. In that case (and playing with logic somewhat), she could be the same person for all editions, but behaving differently according to how much authority has been granted to whoever is in contact with her... or something.

Anyways... I had made another drawing of my current 7-tan concept... but it was before I read any of the comments after my last post so I missed ideas. However, I did add those four square buttons whichc could represent the pinned taskbar buttons feature in Win7. In this case, I wanted to make her look somewhat badass, like it was told before. As for the bunny ears, I did not put them because I went "Badass with bunny ears? Does not compute! Does not compute! *explodes*"... but I might think on doing it later on. In the meantime... I added a randomly designed scythe for her to play with... oh, and yes, shes on mid air.

Here: CLICKY CLICKY!! (http://www.geocities.com/che_extreme/Win7-002.jpg)

Did I mention I drew with on a bus while going to college?

Oh... and again... comments, comments, comments... they're needed.

Next-up... me drawing the concept made by Nuker, the one made by VonDaab... and mine again. Might show it up by the end of the week... promise I'll at least draw them.

Post by: Smokey on February 11, 2009, 12:26:32 pm
Well i stared at the concept posted by VonDaab, and indeed she isn't that bad-ass, however i do like the 7-jeans...(took me awhile to realize her jeans actually formed a 7, subtle yet cool...), and i have come to think that those jeans make for a good replacement for the ears, drop the earrings and make a bit more bad, and we have win...
Have to agree with you, Kiso, bunny ears aren't kick-ass....

@Kiso: Now, your design is what I call cool. Looks badass, especially the scythe.


By the way, that talk about SKUs, activations, and "authority levels" got me thinking: since we already talked about "limiters" and "berserk-mode" when discussing DRM we could apply that idea to SKU upgrading. The "normal" 7-tan is the Home Premium version, but she actually has several "seals" or "limiters" which can be deactivated to upgrade. You know, like Shinigami(Bleach)/Alucard(Hellsing)/Goddesses and Demons(OMG), etc... with Ultimate being her "final form".

Anyways, I like it... kinda'... but hope you keep the earlier cutesie ones... they look just lovable. ^^

Still... I am going to take on badass and see how cute can I make it... as disturbing as that maybe... even for me who knows badass can't be cute without being creepy.

Anyways... more drawing goodies! It seems I had way too much free time yesterday, which allowed me to finish my drawing WAY EARLIER than my predicted date of publish. In fact, I actually managed to make two of them drawings. One is in normal anime/manga style and the other in SD style. Here's the SD one... cause I feel not like showing the other one! lol

Quotegee, i wonder how long Vista will live before it gets killed off by M$, releasing another successor...?


They take to long, you complain. They release fast, you complain. Srsly, I think Microsoft is just a punchingbag for you pick on, reguardless of if they are actually doing well with something or not.

anyhow, as for Win 7, Im not cirtain, as I havent cared enough to look up much on it myself, but my freind that works for Microsoft as an over paid consultant for the bill and melinda gates foundation(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_and_Melinda_Gates_Foundation who says Microsoft and Bill specificly never did any good) told me this:  Vista was thrown togeather, kinda like ME was. Windows 7 is supposedly what they have really been working on since XP. Its suppose to have all the stuff they promised that Vista didnt have and people complained about. Vista was rather short in development and was basicly released to fill the long development time gap from Windows 7.  

also, how did I know that you were gonna start doing Rena impressions?

wow, wow, i didn't pick on em for taking so long to release Vista...
I was just wondering if they had anything in development, cuz it was awfully quiet...
And they are really fast with releasing 7 considering the time XP had to age...
However, thanks for the thorough explanation...

And maybe there are some ideas there for 7-tan?

Post by: CaptBrenden on February 12, 2009, 04:10:32 pm
No, you didnt, but it was a general complaint from alot of people that they took forever to release vista and it was "no good"

and possibly, I dunno.  Personality idea maybe, but I think too little to go off of. Like I always say, the best tans are the ones that match the personality of the system.  Kinda hard to make a matching personality for a system that isnt out in the hands of the general public.

Well... the only way to get that through is by waiting.

But then again... personalities could end up to artist interpretation. Giving a persona to a character is way hard to do, and many artists don't really follow the exact same path that the logical thinkers take when portraying characters. In any case, I would go myself for giving her a logically thought up personality, likely based on what was thrown in for Vistan characters.

But I guess your comment meant I should go for... making my concept look more different than Chivistan?

I do like your design as it is but keep in mind that Windows 95, NT 4, 98, 2000 and ME look so much the same yet their OS-tans look so different. Your design can keep a resemblance to Chivistan but it should be toned down a bit.

EDIT: Oops! For a moment I forgot that most of the early Mac-tans resemble one another so that makes me a hypocrite! Feel free to disregard this.

@Kiso: looks really good, but I still think she should have white hair. There are alredady 2 win-tans with blue hair, while there are no win-tans with white hair (except for 3.1sama, buit that's more like silver than white IMO). White would also go well with the whole 'transparency' thing.
Title: 7-tan(Noob's Design)(loli!)
Post by: Kiso on February 15, 2009, 02:53:04 pm
Hmm... I never thought about it that way. I mean, I usually tie the colors schemes of the OS to the tans. Also, don't be fast in saying that 3.1-tan is the only one with white hair... cause I have seen several Vista designs that have used white for hair color, mainly Vistake, Visbou and that short-haired schoolgirl... but I don't have available image links to prove my statement.

Also... how does white go with transparency? No, really... I am curious to know why to make such suggestion.
Title: 7-tan(Noob's Design)(loli!)

I'd say 3.1's is more purpley-gray because, well, she's old.

I'm kind of considering chiVistan the 'official' design. I haven't really seen much Vistake or Visbou art lately. But maybe it's just me.

As for why white hair goes with transparency... white hair -is- transparent: you see it as white just because there's a whole bunch of it. It's the same for red eyes actually: the iris has no color and the red you can see is the blood flowing under it. And while it's true that 7's wallpaper is blue, the default window/taskbar color is actually transparent: it looks blue because you can see the desktop under it.
Title: 7-tan(Noob's Design)(loli!)
Post by: Kiso on February 15, 2009, 04:21:16 pm
By those words... we could actually go optic camouflage on 7-tan and have her codenamed... Solid Snake. lol

But it's true what you say... white hair is merely a bunch of transparent hairs bouncing off the entire spectrum of light (what you forgot to mention). But then again, transparent sheet protectors turn gray when you stack them on a large pile. The true transparent color is black. It doesn't appear in the color spectrum not as visible light (white light). Space is transparent... and it only looks black because there is so much of it that light cannot illuminate it all.

In any case... I chose the color scheme for my concept based on VonDaab's bunny girl 7-tan and also from Chivistan. I can change it though for white... or transparent... or just every color known to humanity.

Hmm... every color possible... that would go right with Windows 7's ability to customize the UI's color schemes with much more ease. Still... might consider using white for the hair... and a light and transparent color for the coat and (probably just some parts of) her other clothing articles.

Yes and Glass turns green, Ice goes blue...
So considering the aero theme wich i think relates to glass, the hair could be green as well while reacting as a prism...
Title: 7-tan(Noob's Design)(loli!)
Post by: Kiso on February 15, 2009, 04:59:55 pm
Ice goes... blue? Glass going green?

Let me explain... usually, pure crystals are supposedly to be completely transparent (like diamonds for example). However, saturation of other elements in the composition of the crystal contaminate them and turn them to other colors, while still being transparent (like the many diamond colors).

The glass effect in the Aero theme actually relates to the transparency and blur features, not so much with the color schemes that the windows have.

In any case... your idea of green hair throws me right back to one of my earlier design which actually resembled that 7-tan with the thong.
Title: 7-tan(Noob's Design)(loli!)
Post by: Smokey on February 15, 2009, 05:09:51 pm
i meant that glass looks green if it's thick enough, and ice looks blue...

And yes i know that the aero theme has nothing to do with colours, but since aero -> glass -> green i thought that green is a logical pick for haircolour, and the prism effect would be a nice feature to play with colours... to denote the ease with wich one can change the colour scheme, aparently, i haven't tried it...

Post by: Archon on March 12, 2009, 01:15:40 pm
Well... That did not last too long. Windows 7 has a few "issues". I know it is still in Beta, but the “Action Center” function is really annoying. Oh, and in the beta the Administrator action shield is now blue and yellow only (the colors diagonally oppose each other).

At least all my friends liked Nuker’s Tan. I think they liked it more than the OS. The Windows 7 tan needs to be very similar to Vista-tan. Windows 7 is basically Vista with a new look. The one thing I do dislike is that when applications are open, they are represented on the taskbar by an icon only. This can be changed in the taskbar properties.

One other thing, when one has multiple instances of the same application open, such as calculator, you still only have one icon on the taskbar that represents all of them. No matter how large the taskbar is, you still only get one icon. A user must move their mouse over the icon, and then a smaller window pops up directly over the icon. From there you can select one of the many open instances of the application.

Perhaps 7-tan needs to be holding a bottle of aspirin, that annoying thing gives me headaches!

Well, yes, it's nothing strictly "revolutionary". But hey, I think people shouldn't expect a revolution such as the XP/Vista one every 2 years. After all, Vista tried to be "revolutionary", and everyone could see the results. The reason 7 works so well is because it's an "evolution".

Improved GUI, (way) improved performance, partial implementation of the min-win kernel, full multi-CPU support,improved virtualisation support, boot from VHD disk images... I really wouldn't call it Vista 1.5. And I'm a beta tester too.

About public acceptance... Beta testers and IT pros love it, but the business world still clings to Xp (And with the current state of the economy you can't really blame them). As for news on the design, Microsoft has said it will be possible to uninstall IE from windows (well, disable and hide it, since a large part of windows is built on top of IE) *cue 7-tan kicking IE-tan out of her home, or, even better, hiding IE in a cupboard and pretending she doesn't exist*.

Well... right now I salute you peeps from what could be one of the best OSes since 2k. Damn, Windows 7 rocks. But enough of that.

Right now, I am currently on an important mission codenamed "Messing with Seven". Basically, I want to understand as much of the OS to see whether any of the existing 7-tan concepts pay any tribute to the OS besides the visually perceived stuff. The thing I gain from that? Nothing... nothing at all. In fact, who does pay attention to personalities in the doujin world?

However, I might eventually come up with yet another design, but taking more inspiration from the other existing designs.

Well... time to get back to using seven. I'll give you more ~tan-style feedback in the future. Oh, and check back in a while, I am going to post up another concept. lol

Well... if you're from the US military and are using a computer from there... not yet as they have now made XP fully secure for their use. I am not sure how much "fully secure" really is, however. lol

Now, leaving that interesting bit of trivia aside... I am quite positive people can make the switch early, although it's always preferred to take the jump a little while later. I am actually running mine RC of the OS on a 7-year-old machine, and... as much as people might not believe me, it actually runs better than XP. Don't know how, don't know why... it JUST does. I guess this proves Microsoft was actually going for "listening to what people had to say".

So far (been using it for just afew hours), I have not encountered anything wrong, everything seem to be placed within a few clicks of reach... even more for those who had experience with Vista. Fact is, I can hardly, tell the visual difference between the two OSes, with the exception of the obvious UI changes and the extra features added to make it more of a convenience.

A rough sketch of my first variation on the concept. Nothing revolutionary, but I think it's better than the old one.

Info: When working on the old concept I was always wondering about how long the coat should be, or what kind of dress I should put under it, so I thought: what if I made the coat itself a dress and put another coat over it? This way I get to keep the taskbar buttons and all the transparency without having 7-tan look too much like vistan, and at the same time I give her a "magical girl" vibe. To make that vibe stronger I gave her two hair ribbons instead of one and a magical energy scythe.
I've yet to decide the colour of her coat, though. White is nice magical-girly, while black gives her a  badass "grim-reaper" look.

What do you think? Suggestions and ideas are greatly appreciated.

I dunno about those colors, mate. That white coat more feels like a labcoat (which I personally don't mind, but I dunno about you others) while black just makes her look like just about any other girl with jeans and black coat wandering about in the darker months here up north. Seriously, sans the scythe and white hair, she'd could be just about any lass out shopping in Stockholm City in january...

Ok, then, I'll be working on the colors and the outfit. I'll see if I can make them more flashy and magical, and stuff... I already have a couple ideas.

Well, have to agree with Nej there (goddam Scandinavians and their pretty girls), 7-Tan doesn't look as revolutionary as she should there...
Perhaps a Che Guevarra shirt/Mercenary/Revolutionary style?... ^_^

Point is, imho, that she should look special, but -not- revolutionary. The OS itself is excellent, but its just an evolution of Vista. Microsoft itself markets it as an evolution, not a revolution: the last OS they marketed as revolutionary was Vista, and, well... also, if you pay attention to the visual changes between the Beta and the RC you'll notice that they're getting rid of the light ray/aurora theme they had going in Vista and are leaning towards a more "old school" style. That's why even tough I'm working on redesigning the coat, I don't think I'll put much transparency or light effects on it: Aero is still there, but it's no longer being marketed as a selling point. The "wow" era has ended, the "get to work, and fast" era has started. :P

Post by: Kiso on May 10, 2009, 04:48:17 pm
I agree with Nuker on the evolution-vs-revolution matter. Windows 7 doesn't bring much to the table that's was not already introduced in Vista or earlier OSes. MS is just building up on what's already been there, making those thing more resource-friendly and user-friendly at the same time.

Anyways, Nuker... I saw your drawing earlier when I was about to start my own and thought "cute magical girl, oh, and heven describes her as such (yes, didn't even need to read to know what she was) wonder what can I make of it", and then started drawing. Well, this is what I made of it:
(http://i197.photobucket.com/albums/aa297/Shin_Fiwaicearth/Sketches/Win7-003.jpg)
Card Captor Sakura much? lol

AAANYYYWAAAAAYYYS... I am going to make another drawing, want to see if I can focus on what I first had in mind. *is a damn easily distracted person* XDD

Added after 2 hours 25 minutes:

Oh, one more thing that had come to my mind in my quest for OS testing and design making. I realized people are taking to disregard Win7's theme features. Then I asked myself, "Why do we seem to be hellbent on making a static character? We have the ability of representing one feature of the OS as 7-tan's ability to be visually diverse, and with ease... and we don't take it!"

So this is what I am trying to say... besides giving her a "standard" look, 7-tan should be drawn wearing different kind of clothing more often than done for any of the other MS-tans.

"Because I like diversity." - [7 / Seven / Nana / Shichi]-tan

Post by: Kiso on May 13, 2009, 12:48:40 pm
Update: Aparently, that design I made had stuck within my mind. I actually made two or three more drawings that had not changed from the the one I posted above. Here's the latest:

(http://i197.photobucket.com/albums/aa297/Shin_Fiwaicearth/OS-tans/Win7-005.jpg)

Now, on this I think I might have not done much to make her look like any of the Vista more than I did to make her resemble one of the 7-tan references I had. I want to incorporate both Chivistan and "Screw Vista" (forgot her name) into the mix, to spice it up a notch... and see if something good can come out of it. lol

Oh, one more thing... how should I go about the "7" in order to let people know she's 7?

Woo. That one looks quite much like the Nijiuras' proposed 7-tan...
http://kazumi386.org/~ostan2/pic_os_uploader01_seven/seven/src/1240338643891.png
Ours seem better, though. Nothing's cemented yet lawl!
Anyway, for 7, draw 7's on open areas like belt, arms and shiz.

Actually, I had used that concept as my main reference... I liked the one a lot. lol I may keep on making changes to the design, though. Maybe use similar color schemes , or adding things the other Vistans had ('cept for "Ninja Vistan", I've had enough of ninjas... or her for that matter) to give that "Vista with a new look" effect.

As for your suggestion. I think I will avoid drawing 7's in too many places... I think that alone marked the demise of the other 7-tan concepts.

Okay... it seems as though I am keeping this thread alive alone. Where's Nuker anyway? I feel alone now.

Anyways... because I did not feel likem aking another new thread rather than let this one die (since the OP simply "died out")... and on the offchance I get smacked for making a duplicate thread (I can create another, can I?)... I decided to simply post here again to show you guys what I've done.

First comes...
(http://i197.photobucket.com/albums/aa297/Shin_Fiwaicearth/OS-tans/Win7-007.jpg)
Those are Nuker's and my designs. Note that my character is facing away and there may be design changes. I think of was picturing the still undecided '-tan designs (but mine more than Nuker's)... as well as this:
QuoteNuker's: Do you think we'll ever be chosen as the common standard?
Mine: I don't know... my artist hasn't even finalized my design. Don't be surprised if we're finally set to go by the time an official 7-tan is chosen.
Nuker's: You think?
Mine: *sigh* Stupid artist... not finishing me already.

lol

And then goes goes this:
(http://i197.photobucket.com/albums/aa297/Shin_Fiwaicearth/OS-tans/Win7-006a.jpg)
Yeah, 'cause I felt bored one day and started doodling... I wound up making a 7-kun (unrelated: My mom saw me drawing it and thought I was making a drawing of myself. lol) to accompany 7-tan... so... they're now a pair, unlike some other '-tans who seem to not have been given a male counterpart. Find the "7" references! lol

Ironically... 7-kun is actually more a concrete design, though colors may or may not change. I wanted to give him a more or less teenaged look. As I looked around, I noted that most '-kuns either are kids or young adults (if not actual adults or seniors). Where's the teenage love? Well, here it is now! lol

Anyways... I will post more... and hopefully come up with a final cocept based on what I've gathered from using the OS. One thing I am also thinking on, is whether or not I should also give them themed appearances (you know, to reflect the increased theme support), or just leave them with a standard attire and be done with it.

Comments and suggestions needed guys... thanks in advance. lol

I'm here, I'm here, XD (just -very- busy: I have a bunch of exams this month, and I have to pass them, if I don't want to study all summer...)

I did some sort of remix of all the designs so far, and then added some ideas of my own, and I thought I'll post it.

Notes:

I didn't colour anything, but her outfit is supposed to be blue (the "taskbar" is still white/transparent though), her skirt is (probably) black  and that thing wrapped around her waist is supposed to be a bow/ribbon. (And yeah, I can't draw feet to save my life so I decided to skip drawing them altogether...)

LOL... Very elegant solution though... and a bit hard to believeseeing how the rest of the pic, wich is pretty good...
I like this 7-tan... ^_^

BTW maybe some designer shoes, perhaps? To ease the drawing a bit...
Title: 7-tan(Noob's Design)(loli!)
Post by: Kiso on June 18, 2009, 10:42:05 pm
You know... I was under that same impression as well, Smokey. Feet re not really hard to draw, specially if they have shoes on them.

Nuker, try looking at your own shoes to get the general idea... also look at anime/manga so you see how are they made. Also look at the real items (either from stores or IMGs from the web) to see what they look like further. Thing is... if you have the ability to draw her head, you may as well be able to draw shoes at the least. Unless you real problem has to do with the angle of the shoes... or how to make them fit the rest of her body.
Title: 7-tan(Noob's Design)(loli!)
Post by: Nuker on June 23, 2009, 01:25:02 pm
Yeah, it's the angle of the shoes that I can't seem to get right... I will work on it, and thanks for the suggestions.

BTW, I have an announcement to make:

I just found out DarKnight is back! Look at his DA profile: he's back for real. It'd be great if he could join this thread.
Title: 7-tan(Noob's Design)(loli!)
Post by: Smokey on June 23, 2009, 06:21:55 pm
That'd be good, it'd be great if he returned to this forum, period... we need all the artists we can get....
Title: 7-tan(Noob's Design)(loli!)
Post by: Kiso on June 23, 2009, 11:18:55 pm
We sure could... but let's see what time brings forth. I do hope that he makes it back here though.

Anyways, Nuker, befure to check on dA for images... specially the manga section, they sport a great amount of media for reference, which could prove more useful than real ones (since they have outlines and all that). But in the end, it's only something that you will eventually get right with continued practice. Also do try to show us some of your drawings with feet, maybe you are doing better than you think. The worst critic of an artist is one's self you know.

Oh, and... I was inking a new drawing I was going to show you all, but I messed up with inking. It featured Vistan, my 7-kun, and my 7-tan who isn't really finished (darn 7-kun and me designing him). I am in the process of tracing the old one and possibly re-ink it. I also plan on adding more '-tans into the mix. Anyways, I will show you what I have done so far when I am done (which is pretty soon).

WHYSO@LATE LOL WW


>_>

Anyway. That 7-kun design is a leap forward in consistency and creativity of what I've seen out of this site lately (then again I've been in China, so I haven't seen much at all, now have I? Lawliet). When are we gonna start using each others' designs and reproducing them and bulking up images? I'm just saying. -w-;
Title: 7-tan(Noob's Design)(loli!)
Post by: Kiso on July 01, 2009, 06:25:53 pm
Well... thanks... I think.

Anyways, about that using other's designs... I kinda'failed again... my inking pen got dry and I went for swatting... it wasn't pretty for my drawing... so I guess I will have to try and trace (yet again) to save my self esteem... but this time I ain't inking... i'm leaving everything for Illustrator, which I am using at school. I already am vectorizing one of my concepts as an assignment to see how much I have kept from my inkscape days (haven't done vector in months).

Anyways, if I finish my work before friday, I may be able to show it to you... in the meantime, i'll keep trying to draw other concepts (specially 7-kun) and finally getting a 7-tan done to show that I am not an undecided idiot. lol

Well, unless you guys have more ideas or suggestion, I pretty much finalized my 7-tan design.

Notes:
-She's supposed to be leaning against a wall.
-Her energy scythe is not active.
-Yay, I drew her feet! (They look horrible, but hey, at least I drew them :p)

Post by: Smokey on July 03, 2009, 12:34:32 pm
They don't look horrible! They look like feet (well inside boots that is ^_^)

See what a simple stylish pair of boots can do?
Title: 7-tan(Noob's Design)(loli!)
Post by: Kiso on July 04, 2009, 03:31:42 pm
Yeah they don't! I think the problem lies in the fact that they look just like a silhouette of the boots rather than an actual boot. Also, I think the boots need a defined sole.

TIP: Try doing the base of the model of the feet and after draw the boots on top of them so that they may look more natural. Getting the curved shape of the feet allows it to gain some depth.

Anyways, I decided to work on you drawing after seeing it (yes, I have kept away from my designs after the consecutive failures, but will get to work on 7-tan and 7-kun again). Here it is..

Hey guys... I was surfin' da' W3 and I found this image that actually has that cool factor that most of the 7 designs lack... and it just became my favorite 7-tan over the one with the orange kimono. This one aims to go the same way I intended in the first place... you know, "Vista with a new look" way I mentioned before. But... you be the judges yourselves... here...

(http://i197.photobucket.com/albums/aa297/Shin_Fiwaicearth/OS-tans/1246679953537.jpg)

I really got a liking to this... and is actually making me change some stuff about my thought-up design... maybe even 7-kun. that's how much I like it. However, something about the colors seem off... or maybe it's the type of clothing with the color choice... can't quite place it.

Anyways... off to bed... and maybe then start off with my final 7-tan once and for all.
Title: 7-tan(Noob's Design)(loli!)
Post by: Nuker on July 14, 2009, 01:38:29 pm
I'll have to agree here... pretty damn cool. The concept actually uses some of the magical girl concept we've been throwing around and looks chivistan-inspired enough, though of course, the artist opted for a more... stripperific design. Seriously, I think they'd have to start considering GUI improvements in a "relative" rather than in an "absolute" sense soon, or the next Windows-tan won't have much to wear lol.

EDIT: And yeah I get what you mean when you say the colors are a bit off... Win 7 doesn't have such bright colors: everything's either white, light blue, or dark blue.
Title: 7-tan(Noob's Design)(loli!)
Post by: Kiso on July 17, 2009, 05:01:27 am
Hmm... I guess you're right, maybe it's the colors. That amount of blue I could actually like to see on an Azure-tan (Windows Azure, Microsoft's Cloud Computing OS)... by the way, we need one of her. lol

Anyways, I tried drawng my 7-tan... and after seeing this I could not draw anything other than her which is not a good thing in itself... I might try another route to se this through though. I guess I will have Photoshop help me out on this one... and maybe I'll throw Inkscape and Illustrator into the mix. I like what they did for this "Vistan SE" (loljoke), so I guess Iam going to play with her for a short while before getting onto my usual business.

I personally enjoy the windows 7 tan currently in the "other" section of the picture galleries

(http://ostan-collections.net/imeeji/albums/userpics/11575/normal_1231413183976.jpg)

It seems to have some of the things people have said (though some i have to look up...which is sad since i'm testing it now and don't know...)

Has the white hair idea,the ribbon...the clothes can be related to the superbar which i think should be an important feature to list,as i think many users are going to relate windows 7 to it's new task bar,since the taskbar is one of those things you tend to always notice,like the desktop

.As for the jumplists they could just be the 4 boxes of the windows icon stretching out like drawers (a bit cartoony but it's a bit cute)

anywho just felt like posting some thoughts of my own.

I'm greatly enjoying Windows 7 so far and hope to see a decided on tan soon :D (at least decided somewhere....since if i recall noone really decided on vista except in their areas)

Uh... after seeing being shipped as Vista so much... I don't want it near the other Windows 7 concepts... simply a no for me. Heck, the +Niji+ and Futaba peeps seem to think the same since basically none of them have gone and used her for 7-tan. The only exception to that was 2ch, and they only posted it once, and basically got taken over by others.

I do like it myself, though not as much as Chivistan and Chichihvistan, and I think I may have use for her in my "mess-up mash-ups", but I really won't be able to see her a nothing more than a one-shot Vistan.

was it really shipped as a vista a lot?

cause this is literally the only picture i've seen of it,and it's in both the vista section and the other section as win7 for some reason. I figured noone had actually taken notice to it due to the fact it only has that one picture...

that said,i think that 7-tan has to be based in some way on a previous vista tan,the reason being that it's more or less a redone and improved windows vista.

still though...i feel as if i missed something seeing as how for a concept you say was shipped a lot...this is the only place i've ever found a picture of this vista-tan.

It doesn't quite matter though,i just thought it was a very fitting concept,and did have some of the things people suggested in the thread.

Well I can say that it appeared on Futaba and Wakachan a lot. However, it was always that same one-shot (and incomplete, no full-body) image. I have to look into the Futaba Image Collector to see if I can find her there... but I am discouraged by the fact that I'd have to look in three Vista sections (yes, people there were soo eager that they filled two sections and I think the third section will fill up soon (if not eventually).

More on that, the image itself was used to bring about 7, which got instantly shot down at Wakachan via fail-n-bash... and later appearance of the actual Win7 concepts. Funny moment that was... thread got deleted though... the key reason she is hard to find as it is. This also happens at Futaba and +Nijiura+

Anyways, the two images I posted about that blue-colored Vistan are based on Chivistan/Chichivistan (or at least the guys at +Nijiura+ seemed to have gone that way) while the Futaba designs seem random (fox-girls, pirates, angels... heck even fairies) at best, except for the few "Vistake turning into 7" jokes. That also one of the things I like about the +N+ concepts, they tend to follow some logical sense (and I think a perverted one as well lol) rather than make some far off inside joke at something that many people may not be aware of nor will understand.

Funny moment that was... thread got deleted though... the key reason she is hard to find as it is. This also happens at Futaba and +Nijiura+

Anyways, the two images I posted about that blue-colored Vistan are based on Chivistan/Chichivistan (or at least the guys at +Nijiura+ seemed to have gone that way) while the Futaba designs seem random (fox-girls, pirates, angels... heck even fairies) at best, except for the few "Vistake turning into 7" jokes. That also one of the things I like about the +N+ concepts, they tend to follow some logical sense (and I think a perverted one as well lol) rather than make some far off inside joke at something that many people may not be aware of nor will understand.


Ah...thats a shame.It's really sad to hear that the artist never built on the idea.

Well Chivistan seems like a really nice one...i just hope that the 7-tan is a little more...umm...reserved then chivistan was.

Chivistan was a real aero fan in a lot of her pictures ^^;;

EDIT:for example...i think the picture you posted is great.,...but was the nearly slipping top necessary?

Yeah it's kind of  shame that it didn't get supported, but lack of support also has a part on it (why bother do something when others don't want it).

As for the 7-tan design being more conservative... you be the judge. Here...

I think it's pretty conservative myself... kind of like a mix between Vista and XP (specially that last one, which seems to be Win7's "XP Mode") turned into some magical girl version. This one has more potential than anything I've ever seen. If only people were to agree rather than compete for a design... it's not like Microsoft's going to make their OS an official one.

HOW-EV-AAR... I noticed something else. The guys at +Nijiura+ seemed to relate undies with security. What do teeny whites have that make them secure? Contradiction indeed. The only one that sort of makes sense is the bluer concept which features her in a one-piece undergarment. I guess I know one thing that has to be changed on that design.

As far as i can see the 1st,3rd and last seem to be the most normal looking...but the skirts really short.I guess it's not a huge deal but still XD

I think the only question i have is whether or not they've figured out how she relates to the new features,like the superbar ,homegroup, controllable UAC,and the such...i guess it's not really too important to show off those things either since the old ones didn't.

Personally i think it looks great and fitting,just i think as time goes they're making the windows tans look a little more...revealing.

course out of the windows tans i'm a personal fan of 3.1,so that's probably why.Though even XP didn't exactly have her undergarments showing >.>

still if i had to choose,i'd say this seems great for 7

...but does 3 have to be there?^^;;

Not much of a big deal is right... considering XP has one at around that level... and theme there are some that don't even have skirts. It kind of goes on par with current trends. lol

Chivistan features the Security Center's shield icon which takes every security related feature under its wing. She also sports accessories that sport the new "Start" button. Then, with 7, the +Niji+ guys added that shield icon for securities (along with whatever undies are supposed to men in security) and went and gave her XP's color scheme to represent "XP mode". They are adding stuff.

Oh, and if you haven't noticed, the feather with the strange color is supposed to represent the Betta (I think MS' pun on beta) wallpaper, but are still discussing whether it should or should not be there (or at least be colored the way it is) because no one knows for sure whether Microsoft will still have it available in the OS or not when they release the OS.

Quote from: "Wolfwood2057"Personally i think it looks great and fitting,just i think as time goes they're making the windows tans look a little more...revealing.
That is what Nuker was telling me earlier... they're (almost everyone, I guess) taking the "WOW factor" way to seriously and applying it in a rather misguided way. But that also has to do with RL trends; people are less conservative now than ever before (but not going to make a case study out of it). They should try to apply it differently... like the pink-haired Vista, which features a lot of stuff without making her too revealing.

Dude, you can't look for XP-tan without finding something like "clingy clothing", and we're talking just about her normal clothes. And don't get me started on lolicon innuendo. It all depends on how perverted the artist who draws the '-tans is or how much do they want attention. Anyone in the OS-tan meme (or any net meme) has to deal with this or simply saturate the world with more conservative art.

If you mean that +Nijiura+ Chivistan0follow-up concept... I think I can agree.

Eh, no probs. Anyways, I didn't want to say this more than the times I have already said it, but I am working on that "Magical Girl Seven" (lolname) to see what I can make of it. New to my statement will be, however, that I am currently "en route" to making a Vista SP2 and am pondering whether to do an SP3 design XP-tan. I have this crazy idea going over my mind... oh, wait... was going to give too much info and I don't even know if I will pull through with it. lol ^^;

It's true that XP was more revealing then say, 98 was,but when it came to this it was still in a normal physical way.She had a larger bust and short skirt but it wasn't necessarily revealing it.With 7 you have the underwear actually showing and the top in some of the pictures is only half covered.

i do understand that i should probably expect this,it's just a bit odd for me when even the conceptual art is like that ^^;. i can understand what you mean though.

by 3 what i meant was picture 3 out of the 4 concept arts you linked of 7-tan,sorry for the lack of clarification.

Oh... I figured as much... I just wasn't completely sure you actually referred to the images there. You seem to misunderstand one more thing as well, not that it's a bad thing of course. Although her outfit at image 2 out of the 4 I linked sports her undergarments showing... "undergarment" almost falls short of a technicality. You see, in that design, the undergarment is basically part of her visual outfit, which would make it more of a swimsuit than it is "underwear". It's just a layer of clothing that has double use.

At first, I did not understand why it was so, Because I was always thinking "underwear showing". However, this familiar feeling was in my mind as I saw the images. Then I thought back to my own 7-tan concepts and found what I was looking at with that concept. Most of mine (if not all) feature a concept quite like that (I remembered a girl saying "she forgot her skirt, I can see her underwear" while I was making one of those designs and me replying "it's supposed to be like that"), and then I went, "Ah, I get it now! Visual undergarments!" and that's bout it.

So I guess I can relate to what they did and that's what made me instantly like the design. I was going for the orange kimono girl at the Futaba uploader until I started seeing her being given animal-like features (sorry, but I really don't know where a fox relates to Win7 as an OS, not even in codename). They messed up and I luckily found an even cooler concept. That doesn't mean I won't use ideas based on her though, I still like her... just not as much due to the fox thing.

So..number 2 is supposed to be her swimsuit? I suppose that'd make more sense...though not completely sure cause i'm not sure what you define Visual Undergarments as.

I'm starting to -really- like this 7-tan design. The coloring/redesign jobs you found are excellent, expecially the first and the fourth one, which are also the more conservative ones. If I was them, I'd still make that coat-thing a bit longer, to give more of a Magical-Girl vibe. It doesn't need to be really long, knee-lenght should be enough.

It's not really swimsuit. I used the swimsuit comparison because it's accepted to be seen at it's usually the one with more intricate designs. My made-up "visual undergarment" term refers to pieces of clothing that are meant to conceal intimates, but are not really meant to be hidden themselves. That's why you are able to see most of it. It's part of her visual appearance, conservative or not. At least they made it conservative enough for the lower half... and at least even more conservative than Chivis concepts.

Different artists, different thought processes... and the language barrier doesn't help for suggestions. Anyways, we can do that ourselves... well... at least I am sure I can do it... although it would take time from what I wanted to do. lol

So...just trying to make it out,having some issues

by Visual undergarments do you just mean a name for outfits like the top? Or are you trying to say that thats just a layer of clothing under the other outfit?

guess i'm bad with terms ^^;;

That has been coming and going for for at least a year. I think it was competing with Vistake and Visbou in 2ch. She din't get as popular as them, though. I myself like it... but she gives me this weird vibe... doesn't look all that Vista-ish even with all the represented features So yea, I like it, just not that much either.

Anyways, it's still isn't unlikely that the creator or the followers of that design actualy make a 7-tan based on that one... she does have promise.

i wouldn't count on it happening,besides the fact that XP's design has been set in stone with little to no variations,most people would probably also want to maintain that design.

Since theres usually more then one variation,i believe that in the end most people would just stick to the original design rather then fight over variations of an already agreed on design

Nice sketch, Nuker! And it's the first Nanami fanart from OSC! The two parts of the picture don't quite match up but the rest of the sketch looks refined! :D

I see improvement in your design too, Alex_Reetz, and I still like your design even though Nanami is official. And just because there is an official Windows 7-tan doesn't mean anyone needs to give up their design- earlier designs are still being drawn.

In one of my most recent OS-tan pics, I included two of the Windows 7-tan designs here (http://Kattlanna.deviantart.com/art/OS-tan-sketches-2-137714374).

You know? Every time I see a 7-tan desgn that incorporates either lots of sevens all over without subtlety, or a 7-shaped hair... it makes me feel like I want to hack the entire Internet to hell. Please... OH PLEASE... remove the fugly feature off that blonde girl's head! Makes me feel like 7-tan is the new ME. I like her, but that's an insult to the current OS. TT___TT

Post by: Aurora Borealis on October 10, 2009, 04:19:10 pm
I agree- I think the 7-shaped hairclip is okay, but having that huge 7-shaped cowlick right next to it is overkill.
Title: 7-tan(Noob's Design)(loli!)
Post by: Alex_Reetz on October 11, 2009, 10:05:24 pm
I was thinking or removing the 7 off her head. I will make a few designs on one drawing and have a vote. but personally I rewrite designs 2chan made(my avatar) where they removed, or made the 7 smaller on her head. But as I said, I planned on rewriting my 7-tan design

make the ideas more futuristic. from 7 dragon balls, to somewhat 7 satellites? or else. Make win7 more differ than other OS's to claim its originality. just need to squeeze the thoughts little more from our heads  ;001
Title: 7-tan(Noob's Design)(loli!)
Post by: Kiso on October 12, 2009, 01:43:02 pm
LOLWUT?

Seriously now... do you really think 7 satellites will make a tan more futuristic? I really don't think so. Besides... I don't think human anatomy could handle the weight of 7 satellites. lol

That was good for laughs though... seven satellites... XDDDD

She also will voiced by Mizuki Nana (who sings for the Nanoha series OP).

I see a lot of improvement in your latest pic! :)

Sorry that the people at Wakachan can be harsh at times, but I'm glad you were able to take those comments in stride. That there is already a good sign you will keep on improving.

Too often I've seen artists get totally butthurt over critiques and decide to never improve. -_-

just to clear some air

*I am AWR
*This is my design, but it isn't mine, its the worlds.
*I am not out to overshadow the official design
*I may not be the best artist ( and most people who do insult me can't) but I am improving.
*I got other -tans, just want to focus on my 7-tan design
*I don't use mspaint, i use photoshop cs2, paint rage and gimp.
*I made this design when the windows 7 beta came out almost 2 years ago, I did not make this because i hate the official one or trolling
*There are two versions of my 7-tan, a child(x32) the and a (x64) one that is teen
*yeah, my attempts to popularize my design sucks, but how can i distribute it?
*I respect all my fans, and love advice that isnt negative.
*Just because I am American doesnt mean I can't make a os-tan or get involved ( I say that because 2chan banned me because of that, and iichan says thats.)

/END

sorry for the rant mods.

I respect what you're doing, and know that you aren't overshadowing the official design (in fact, despite Nanami being the 'official' design, other Windows 7-tans are STILL being drawn now). I believe just as long as your design is liked by OSC, that's good enough. A way to distribute it could be to upload your pics to your own user gallery- surely visitors will come across them!

Many, many characters and their stories, etc. were created here at OSC, and although they aren't 'canon', they are regarded as a fanon and accepted by some very loyal OS-tan fans here, and on Deviant Art.
