Panel 1: Those chibis are almost obscenely adorable @_______@
2: All I can say is...OSR 2.1-tan is one of the coolest Windows-tans. EVER. I love everything about her design, right down to the archery...perhaps even I bit more than OSR 2.5-tan!
3: More adorableness here! Especially Secchan! ^_^
4: Fark-tan is lookin' sassy XD
5: Yay! The 2 OSR sisters! I wonder if they're going to team up in the contest :P

Wonderful work, as always!

QuoteThat's one of your favorite ZS pages, isn't it?

QuoteHmm... Just about everything that was to be in the ZS Xmas Special was planned out although it included some characters that had not been made until much later (such as eCOS-tan and Atari DOS-tan). It's a shame the Xmas special never got finished ;__;


QuoteWha? The VMS-sama fangirl herself was going to be featured?

I'm sad it never got finished, too... :..(

Aw, alright alright, I'll try and restart it again.  I suppose it would be a shame to cut it off like that.  ^^

This time I'll post the sauce publicy over at FOSA Lite, just to get more of an active environment going.  

Means I may have to shelve zOS-sama for a while, but at least we'll get to star UNIX-sama very briefly!  ^.^

QuoteI can't exactly recall what technique I used with the wavy tablecloths. I think I did use the technique I learned for making a checkerboard pattern but manually bent the squares depending on the folds of the cloth. It's pretty tedious T__T


Ah darn, I made you bend the patterns by hand.  ;__;
Sorry,... have since learned a lot of more useful techniques to use in these circumstances.  I've attached a SUPER BRIEF tutorial on the new approach that I hope can help you with future comics.  ^^

QuoteNot that short (but then again, your standards of short/average/tall are very different from most),


Darn right.  ^-^

Quoteshe is about 5'4'' [163 cm] which is the US female average height.


Still?  ^-^;

QuoteAlthough yes she is short compared to Toshiaki and of course short compared to TotalFark-tan and Barbie Linux-tan!


Woohoo!  I needz more wedding rings.  ^w^

QuoteHowever the downside is that I still have the first OS-tan Flashbackstory Chronicles story to finish. But sketched on paper I am almost all the way through. I'll just devote a little bit of time (up to one hour) a day each day to finish it up so I can get it done while still working on ZS.


Well, you never let us down as far as sheer output of sugoiness.  I'll trust you then that you can handle all this like the back of your hand.  Inside your shoes, I'd probably be sobbing and begging for mercy.  ^^;

QuoteVery very cute and I did not see anything suggestive about them! Really! I was quite baffled when someone thought the CE + Damn Small Linux pic was suggestive!


To translate-quote one of the comments made at +Nijiura+.

"These children.... look tasty."

Guessing this was supposed to be what CE-chan was thinking.  ^____^;

QuoteWell... Linux XP-tan's dress is not completely new. It's a variation of the dress she wore in Bella's second depiction of Linux XP-tan (also paired with DreamLinux-tan)


Aa sou sou,... my memory be dry these days.  ^^;

QuoteSo you are fond of Linux XP-tan despite the fact that she is a total wannabe?  


If that were the case, I wouldn't like ReactOS-tan either.  But at least neither signed any patent protection POC.  -v-

I'm wondering if she'd know a bit of a Russian?  '__'

QuotePanel 11: Used a blue and a much lighter blue linear gradient, added some green and white brush strokes and added in a few sparkles from a sparkle/snowflake-like brush

Panel 12: Used a similar blue gradient- but with more contrast between the shades of blue and it was also a radial gradient situated near the center of the panel. Using the pen tool, I made a several-pointed starshape, colored it white, rasterized that shape layer and used a strong Radial Blur filter (set to 'Zoom'). Then used a light green and translucent/moderately opaque brush and applied it around the edges of the white blurred starshape. Finished with orange and white star + sparkle shapes with the brushes.


You go, Aurora-hime!  ^__^
I always said you had a wonderful way with backgrounds.  ^__^

QuoteI find myself a bit tired with strict storylines, as well....perhaps I should adopt a looser timeline with my future comics...?


Gyaaah! The DEC Story's in jeopardy!  @o@

QuoteAha! So I am taller than usual. Lawl.

QuoteI thought FCL-tan + Abraxas-tan was suggestive in a puppy love kinda way or something...XD


Yeah it wasn't anything hard,...  ^^
Certainly not nearly as suggestive as my FCL/Abraxas Utena cosplay pic.  ^^;

QuoteMe too! (although only slightly)


Whoops.  Got another one!!  ^_________________________^

*starts pushing platform lift towards Aurora*

Quotep.46: Linspire-tan appears-o! Includes mentioning of her former identity-o!


Ah, so this is what you were talking about earlier!  ^^

Hmmm,... indeed, this might complicate things, depending on what Xandros-san does to Lin-chan.  Will she get "lynched" instead?

*laughs at own bad pun*

QuoteHere's page 39!


http://ostan-collections.net/imeeji/displayimage.php?pos=-7292

A possible challenger appears! It's 95 OSR 2.1-tan!

She's the very obscure, steampunk + cyberpunk Windows-tan who likes to make electronic gadgets even though they often backfire


PANEL 1:  Have to concur.  Patented Aurora Chibisâ,,¢ are the best thing to enjoy after a long day's work.  ^^

You gotta love those timid little 98-tans.  ^^

PANEL 2:  WOW!  The casual wear really works for her!!!  ^V^
And the tubed pigtails... *SHOCK*

OMG!!!  Could it be possible,... that might heart could have room for MORE than just OSR 2.5-sama?!!  @v@;

PANEL 3:  Why does this picture remind of that Braidy show thingy (Braidy Bums, Braidy Bunch, or whatever its called)?  With cute expresssions like that, OSR 2.5-sama has no fear of being displaced by her older sister.  ^^

The expressions on Slashdot's face,... yeah, that's pretty much the standard issue look on people's faces when they see any of the OSR-tans.

"Who?"

BWAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!!!!!  ^V^

Since Hacchan's exclaiming the same name, I'm guessing she's had a run-in with 2.5-sama's senpai before.  ^__^;

PANEL 4:  Baby, you have NO idea.  ^_____^
But wait, wasn't she in Goddess TotalFark-sama mode not but a few panels ago?  @v@'

Panel 5:  Whoops, this can't end well.  ^^;
Now,... did we agree that OSR 2.1-sama is a great archer, or was that just me being crazy, kooky ol' C-chan?  ^^;

Quote2: All I can say is...OSR 2.1-tan is one of the coolest Windows-tans. EVER. I love everything about her design, right down to the archery...perhaps even I bit more than OSR 2.5-tan!


Nope,... unless Bella-hime is crazy and kooky too, I think we're set.  ^__^

Sweet! Introducing her in ZS has boosted her popularity! I agree, OSR 2.1-tan sure is cool and she is my favorite Windows-tans along with OSR 2.5-tan! (and in a close second are 2.0-chan, 3.1-tan, 97-tan and Secchan)

Quote
5: Yay! The 2 OSR sisters! I wonder if they're going to team up in the contest :P

As a matter of fact, yes they will! You know, to even the playing field!

Still?  ^-^;

I'm kinda surprised too, considering all the grown hormones in meat these days. Surprisingly, a lot of the girls at my school are shorter than average (the shortest girl is about 4'8"), maybe except for this one girl who was in my English class last year and she was 6'0" and this other girl in my PE class who was an estimated 6'1"-6'3".

On the other hand, I have seen very few guys there shorter than 5'9"...

Quote
You go, Aurora-hime!  ^__^
I always said you had a wonderful way with backgrounds.  ^__^

The colorful, psychedelic kind are my forte! However I fail at drawing most scenery (sure, I can render clouds through PS's Clouds filter, know how to render sand, make grass with the grass brush and can draw palm trees but that's about it)

Quote

*laughs at own bad pun*

No, it's not that because I planned out that page before the announcement of Linspire being bought out by Xandros but at some point I'll make a page that involves that.

Poor Lin-chan and Free-chan. I wonder if they would try to rebel against their 'mistress'?

You're probably thinking of the Brady Bunch because of the characters appearing in the squares like that!

Quote

Yes! She is 2.5-tan's comrade and is also dangerous! Not intentionally dangerous but what ever she is making tends to backfire, hence she is dangerous!

Quote
PANEL 4:  Baby, you have NO idea.  ^_____^
But wait, wasn't she in Goddess TotalFark-sama mode not but a few panels ago?  @v@'

Fark-tan may have actually contradicted herself if the OSR-tans are as obscure as mentioned! But nothing is supposed to be too obscure for Fark!

Yeah, she was TotalFark-tan but when by herself not chatting with friends/subscribers, she typically defaults back to Fark-tan.

Oro?  You didn't know?  It's not like I wouldn't belittle Lin-chan for no good reason... OvO

http://blogs.zdnet.com/microsoft/?p=512

A full year in retrospect it was a very crappy decision, as Linspire didn't protect its customers (or few shareholders) anyway.  The Xandros deal (of which none of them was consulted with) was literally a slap in the face to all of them.

Yep,... another good example that differentiates "living" from just "surviving", in this case, keeping the company alive long enough to cash in some big bucks, and then just run with it, all the hard work that went into building the brand be damned.  -v-

I still remember how the +Nijiura+ reacted to my OSR 2.5-sama portraiture.  Might've been the first person outside the original 4koma artist to draw her in anything else.  ^__^

So glad she has some much coverage here.  ^-^

QuoteYes! She is 2.5-tan's comrade and is also dangerous! Not intentionally dangerous but what ever she is making tends to backfire, hence she is dangerous!

I hear that.  ^.^

I have a UPS connected to my little Shuttle KPC, and loads of little laptops everywhere, so no worries here.  However, my DSL connection gets a bit funky when there's thunderstorms, so at least my net experience is at the weather's mercy.  ^^;

QuoteIt's a post-and-run, But I got these two pages done in record time!


Well now, that's amazing if you got TWO full comic panels done in so little time. ^__^

Ever thought about exchanging brains? ^.^

Comic 40:  Ahh, this has to be the sweetest profile of OSR 2.1-sama I've seen yet! I really get a sense of how much detail you put into her elaborate hair style and ribbons.  ^___^

The dialog is a bit verbose, but then she does strike me as the verbose type (kinda like System 6-san, no?).  ^______________^

Regarding the middle narration, I was thinking maybe it can do without the last bit, since AOL-tan already repeats that below.

It can be like:

    "[rest of narration] ...and OSR 2.1-tan is one of AOL-tan's few remaining friends.

    But..."
    [/list]

    And then we let the actual girls do the talking.  ^___^

    Speaking of which, since they're both very tired, maybe AOL's bit can be shortened just a bit.  Like so:

      "This competition... *pant pant* ... doesn't even matter anymore.  Let's just deliver it together....[/list]

      As for the artwork itself:

      1)  Love how well you made them look exhausted.  ^__^

      2)  Love the wheatfield!  Is that also in Photoshop, or did you use Patter or Live Effects in Inkscape?  ^.^


      Comic 41:
      PANEL1: Awesome!  hadn't seen microchibis in over 10.... panels.... ^___^

      I see OSR 2.1-sama has a very neat trellis above the house entrance,... but what's with those brown sticks on each side?  

      PANEL 2 and 3: Cute, and do like the way you change the angle there in the third panel.  Outlook-tan's hand, though, has that stroke bordering her figures, making it look puppet like.  At least the top 4 digits should have the stroke removed -- you can even cover it up using another path the same color as her shaded skin if need be.

      PANEL 4 and 6:  Oh no... wait,.... these two take the cake for best profile of OSR 2.1-sama.  Is like SOMEONE pulled her over and unleashed a can of Cute Ass on her!  ^_____^


      GAAAAAAAAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Need...... to.............. draaaaaaaawwwwww..... X________________________X

      I think I do like her in that uniform -- or at least that's the one I would use for any archery pic I might have for her.  ^.^

      But as always,... I have to remind myself....

      Get it together... Get it together... Get it together...   >.<

      PANEL 5:  Again, good work on giving AOL-tan that look of utter despair and suffering, without losing her looks.  Only OS-tans, I tell ya.... ^___^

      PANEL 7:  OMG!  An OSR 2.5-sama microchibi, cute letter content, and homages to the old Windows button theme!  You might as well just knock me out with a hunk of beef.  ^.^

      *MASSIVE OVERDOSE OF SWOONAGE!!!*

      Thank you so much! I think you are also one in a million as well, you have made a lot of brilliant characters with rich and deep backstories and of course there is the Annex project that you made that is simply awesome, even genius! And although the original thread died a year ago, all the ideas still live on!

      Oh yeah... the alpha version of ZS... Since that was 29 pages, technically the latest page up is page 70! However, ZS Alpha wasn't very good- hence why I started over and ZS is back, better than ever!

      Oh my gosh! That explains it all! Linspire signing that Patent Protection contract, liscensed some things from Microsoft that were incorporated into Linspire. Incorporating things from MICROSOFT into a LINUX DISTRO and contributing to the FUD being spread!

      I also understand how/why SuSE-tan and Xandros-tan also have bad reputations!

      BTW, the artist of that 4Koma does have another comic series on +Nijiura+, it is called ふたã,Šã¯ãƒŸã,¯ã,·ã,¢ ("Futari wa MikuShia"/ "We are MikuShia"), a "Futari wa Pretty Cure"-inspired crossover comic starring Miku Hatsune from "Vocaloid 2" and Shiatien from "Beatmania IIDX" teaming up!

      And on page 4, is a throwback to that artist's OS-tan comic with the page that had Linspire-tan in it!

      Uhh... Let's not try that out. But the backfiring of her machines isn't usually to that extent, they usually go up in smoke and/or create showers of sparks with the occasional bursting into flames!

      It reflects how OSR 2.1's purpose was to introduce USB support and that the difference between OSR 2.1 and the previous 95 release. However OSR 2.1 did not do a very good job with what it was supposed to do ^^;

          "This competition... *pant pant* ... doesn't even matter anymore.  Let's just deliver it together....[/list]

          Okay! That is shorter AND more effective! I will redo the dialogue on this page and use your suggestions!

          As for the artwork itself:

          1)  Love how well you made them look exhausted.  ^__^

          2)  Love the wheatfield!  Is that also in Photoshop, or did you use Patter or Live Effects in Inkscape?  ^.^

          I did the wheatfield in Photoshop. I didn't know I could do something like that in Inkscape!

          PANEL1: Awesome!  hadn't seen microchibis in over 10.... panels.... ^___^

          I think page 40 is one of the first pages that does not have any microchibis in it! o_o

          I see OSR 2.1-sama has a very neat trellis above the house entrance,... but what's with those brown sticks on each side?  

          Oh... Those brown sticks were supposed to be poles holding up the power lines. Poorly-made power line poles...

          PANEL 2 and 3: Cute, and do like the way you change the angle there in the third panel.  Outlook-tan's hand, though, has that stroke bordering her figures, making it look puppet like.  At least the top 4 digits should have the stroke removed -- you can even cover it up using another path the same color as her shaded skin if need be.

          It does look weird. I wasn't completely sure whether to keep those strokes or not and well I guessed wrong -_-  But that's not a problem because I can easily fix that in Photoshop without starting over on anything.

          PANEL 4 and 6:  Oh no... wait,.... these two take the cake for best profile of OSR 2.1-sama.  Is like SOMEONE pulled her over and unleashed a can of Cute Ass on her!  ^_____^

          I think I do like her in that uniform -- or at least that's the one I would use for any archery pic I might have for her.  ^.^

          But as always,... I have to remind myself....

          Get it together... Get it together... Get it together...   >.<

          Of course you'd want to get it together... get it together... if you are already swamped with other drawings to work on.

          PANEL 7:  OMG!  An OSR 2.5-sama microchibi, cute letter content, and homages to the old Windows button theme!  You might as well just knock me out with a hunk of beef.  ^.^

          *MASSIVE OVERDOSE OF SWOONAGE!!!*

          Watch out... That can be arranged! No... I'm not going to do that. I want to save my steak so I can eat it!

          Just one problem.  Your watermark is out of place, no?  ^___^'

          Yes but it was intentional for that page.
