QuoteYo Raffaele!!! ^__^What's up? How's it goin'? ^v^Just heard the big news,... that you released sketches of MorphOS-sama shortly after I had left! 'v'Shoot, what a helluva time for me to go on vacation. -___-;Hopefully you're getting some good comments from my friends, whom I'm sure right now are raking in the post count. ^__^And if not, feel free to give them a good beating for not partying or going on NewYinzer-style posting rampages across admin threads. ^v^(Gwahaha! I remember that.... ^___^)Regardless, let me throw in my 2 Euro cents.... ^.^*pulls out coins tube from carry-on suitcase filled-to-the-brim with Euro coins*For one thing, by virtue of being, not only an alternative OS-tan, but MorphOS-tan at that, there's no way in hell I'm going to do anything but love it. ^__^And since the design is not all that dissimilar from my preconcept notion I had in mind for her, I love it even more,... enough to do disparaging things to the palm pilot I use in my travels. ^^;But even if that weren't the case, I still don't do criticism and probably am useless if you're looking for both "pros" and "cons". You could try to seek out the great Darknight_88 in that respect; he may or may not say something about the broad shoulders, but even so tell him to go easy on you as it is just a sketch. ^__^Of course, in this day and age it's easier to fine roses growing in the sea than Darknight in our threads. ^^;So guess you're just stuck with praises and suggestions then. -v-First the praises.....LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT,... WANNA MARRY IT. ^V^(That way, Amiga-chan can be my in-law. ^__~)Not much to say about pic #1, but #2 is a wealth of interesting perspectives. ^__^Might be the helmet, but for some reason she keeps reminding very strongly of Nausicaa,... more so than Nadia. It doesn't help that Amiga-chan's personality is partly based on Nausicaa (with some parts Belldandy and Sakura mixed in), so it seems natural to me that MorphOS-chan would have a little some of that. ^__^Her expressions speak volumes, btw. She strikes me as a kind, friendly and elegant young lady, but also strong-willed and independent, with a Linux-like courage that befits her own use of a helmet. ^__^Now suggestions.... -v-Placing the butterfly wings on the helmet instead is an original idea; even though I feel putting some larger cyan wings on her back instead would make for a more powerful and dramatic effect, I also don't want the helmet to look empty. ^___^So how about a patented C-chan compromise.... -v-================A) Move the butterfly wings to her back (and naturally enlarge so she can fly really fast, not unlike these Might and Magic characters)... B) ...and at the same time, put smaller pegasus wings (as in PegasosPPC) on her helmet (and maybe even sharpen the angles to get a cooler effect). Maybe it's cause I'm a coin collector, but Mercury comes to mind (albeit with butterfly antennae)...Try it out for effect and see if it sounds feasible. ^__^(FYI, the reverse also came to mind (butterfly wings on helmet, angel-like wings on back), but it's not as aerodynamic and besides the butterfly is the stronger symbol. ^.^)==========Can't really say this until there's a colored version, but I was thinking,... as a homage to the elegant Ambient GUI, how about making the helmet a tinted semi-transparent material? Either crystal or plastic (well okay, crystal,... can't be cheap with MorphOS-chan... ^^;). That way, you can offer a design feature that's not been tried before, add another layer of beauty for her, and also allow her gorgeous hair to be (almost) viewable at all times. ^__^Eyes are a big thing for me -- especially in the AmigaGold family line (excepting TripOS who's part of the older generation), i'd love to see each member have unique eyes. Naturally Amiga-chan already has rainbow eyes and AROS-chan will undoubtedly be feline. For MorphOS, I always envisioned her's as lumiscent cyan (of various degrees, of course -- mildly glowing most of the time, but raging fiercely as a goddess' eyes when very active). 'v'Also, a correction on your height. I believe 170cm is actually much closer to 5'7". But for C-chan's purposes, C-chan likes that very much more. ^___^In fact,.... -v-....*lecherous grin* C-chan might just lobby for 172cm. ^w^But that's my limit, as story-wise it's still important for Amiga-san to be the tallest of the AmigaGold-tans. (AROS-tan should probably be a shorter pre- or early adolescent-type, given that she's still the least feature-rich.)Weight seems low, but not a problem for me since I usually omit that from my Annex (most girls worth their salt wouldn't want it posted, you know...). ^__^Flatter chest is fine by me. -v-I view the OS-tan "memory" thing as being relative to the age of the system. That's why Amiga-san, who should have inverted breasts by today's standards, is in fact quite well-endowed because it was a completely different story in her heyday. ^__^And that's about all I have to say about that. ^__^It ain't easy typing on a Palm, you know,... even more so for a pig... ^.^'Just some quick news about my vacation, though. ^v^Everything's going fairly well,... stopped by a certain South American country to view an interesting conference and pick up some coins, then flew over to several European countries to pick up more coins. I'm actually embarrassed to say I stopped by your country and didn't visit ya, but as it was only to transfer flights (and pick up coins), I was strapped for time. ^^'I did get to see Rome a little, and while at the Piazza di Spagna I got to meet some new friends. ^.^Here's a picture of me with them.... -v-Cute as buttons, aren't they? ^__^Don't ask me about the guns, though -- I was just there to flirt, not ask them 50 questions... fufufu.... ^.^I'm in Moscow now, picking up coins, and I'll be heading over to NewYinzer's favorite country to pick up more coins and maybe sign a few trade deals while I'm at it. -v-Art isn't as prolific as I thought, but I am still getting a few things done. Nearly done with eComStation-tan and it's looking quite nice if I may say so (probably the reason why it's taking so long to finish... ^^;). Maybe by tomorrow I'll be able to relay it to C-One so she can post it to the Annex. ^v^Plus I have more ideas for other smaller projects too. -v-BTW, please make a colored version of MorpOS-chan as soon as you can. ^__^I REALLY want to make a chibi version of her so badly. ^v^Must.... draw.... MorpOS-chan..... That's.... Priority One.... @v@Alright, that's all for me. ^__^I'll send you the bill for the transmission time, since it was your awesome artwork that made me praise so much. ^.^Please say hello to my fellow forum goers for me! ^v^Chow...!Er,...I mean, "Ciao". ^.^

QuoteYo Minna-san!! ^v^O-genki desu ka, y'all? ^__^Hehe,... I've been through hell. ^^;You'd think I'd have trouble in NewYinzer's favorite country, but ironically it's in Japan where I'm stuck.... ^v^;Apparently there's some issues with me hauling 15 suitcases filled with coins. -v-;I'd ship 'em, but already spent all my paper yens on Meiji-era coins and maxed out my three credit cards at Akihabara. So till I get some paperwork straightened out, this is where I'm staying for the remainder of my vacation. ^^;But it's not all bad,... All those romance comedy titles were right -- it really IS easy to attract harems here. ^__^They're crawling all over the place, waiting for unsuspecting losers to swarm over. ^v^;I'm staying with a particularly-zany troupe of high school girls, which is great cause I ain't got no money for hotel fees. ^^;Here's a picture... -v-http://www.verytragicalmirth.com/Images/AzumangaCchan.jpgI'll be back on Friday, btw. ^v^Which is great cause I've only got, like, 2 minutes of battery power on this thing and am too embarrassed to use their outlet. ^___^(but not flirt, go figure... -v-)Just some quick bullet points:1) Finished my eCS-chan pic! ^v^This is now my most advanced picture made to date! A great experiment for dynamic lighting and stuff on Inkscape! I know have enough confidence to go ahead with the Captain's 2.0/3.11 pic. -v-http://www.verytragicalmirth.com/Images/eCS-tanTHUMB.jpgLarger version2) Raffaele-san, WHY didn't you submit those wonderful pictures earlier?!! ^0^I mean I liked your sketches, but these were beyond awesome and cuuuuuuuuute!And I'm a sucker for cuuuuuuuuute! ^.^I'll say more when we get back, but I love that extra flexibility of having her switch between normal and battlesuit mode. That way, we can definitely combine the best of both worlds! ^v^Make sure you finalize quickly so I can do a chibi. Already have a preconcept notion for AROS, but might wait for your input in case you were interested in making one as well.And dude,... hehe,... wrong Sakura. ^^;BWAHAHAHAHA!!! ^V^Yeah, I know, I'm cruel. -v-3) Aurora-sama! ^v^Check out my new eComStation pic to see someone veeeeeeeery familiar to you! ^v^Oh, and your pre-Mac wiki avis are on the way!!! ^V^The sooner I get them ready, the faster C-One can finish the House of Mac section of the Annex. -v-4) For everyone else, POST POST POST OR PH34R MY PIGGY MADNESS SYNDROME!!!! MWAHAHAHA!!! >v<...Oh #&@%! Low battery... -v-See y'all fri--
