Here are some OS-tan designs and redesigns I made, using pen and ink with digital coloring. I've only been drawing anime for maybe the past month or two, so please don't laugh ;)

Zenwalk-tan

I've never seen an OS-tan for the Linux distro. So I made one ;)
I put her in the water because the Zenwalk logo is a dolphin jumping over the name Zenwalk.

Sorry I couldn't just link the pix...They only give HTML code.

Woohoo!  ZENWALK!  I love dolphins!  ^___^


Thank you for considering a Linux distros as one of your first original creations.  We of the Open Source leaning salute you!  ^___^/

That being said, the rest of them are exceptional too -- the sexier takes on 2K-tan and Sonata-san are very well made, and my favorites.  ^.^

Considering you've just started, you have a very keen eye for proportions and fashion.  I am liking this very much.  ^__^

Incidentally, what program(s) do you use to paint?

I am absolutely delighted that you used an OpenSource Operating System as first one. They all are good, but the 'think different' one *lol*

Good Job!

Wow, didn't know ZenWalk used XFCE as it's default desktop.  ^.^

Might give their LiveCD a try.  (Although I'm still waiting to give Sabayon LiveDVD a whirl....)  ^___^

Thanks guys! I'm very happy to hear you like them! I'm going to do some more Linux-tans...maybe Tinfoil Hat Linux. It's a very unique OS, both in structure and name, lol. I'm just trying to decide if it should be a paranoid girl hiding under a blanket with a tinfoil hat, or a stealthy spy-like character dressed in black, or a militaristic, camouflage-wearing nut with a gun...lol...
I like to try putting my own style on the different characters. Right now I'm working on a rendition of premium Vistan (Silver haired girl).

I've done a lot of western-style drawings and cartoons, so that's where a got a lot of practice...the hardest thing was trying to make my tans look more  anime-like.

Gimp for some, but I find (And don't laugh) Microsoft Picture It! 9 to be easier. I said don't laugh. ;)

This is how she was designed by Aurora Borealis:

Tinfoil Hat Linux-tan! She's very timid and that shows through when attempting a tough-girl act and is also paranoid and always wants lots of security. But if she can trust people, she can offer them her security services! Her biggest fears are aliens, radio waves, the thought of mind-control devices, entrepreneurs, and government workers!

Aurora's design is interesting, as are all of her works! My personal ideas, however, are split into three ideas:

1: A teenage girl, wide-eyed, wearing a tinfoil hat, and clutching a flashlight while hiding under a blanket. She thinks that 'they're' out to get her.

2: A spy, who dresses all in black and is a master of stealthiness. She's very expressionless, not one to give her thoughts away. When she leaves a place, nobody can ever prove she was there (Which mimics THL's albilty to fit on a single floppy disk). My personal favorite.

3: A girl dressed in camouflage, wearing a string of bullets and a gun over one shoulder. (I'm not sure about this one, though, because Tinfoil Hat Linux isn't made to network...and a gun would imply defense rather than avoiding outside intrusion by not connecting with other computers...)

The Penguin God does seem to enjoy posting very old pictures.  ^^;
Here's a bigger one:

That's why I always tell her to maker her own user gallery, since her artwork is strewn all over her the forum.  ^^'

I wouldn't mind seeing her with heavy firepower, though (probably what she'd act like without her hat).  -v-

Aurora Borealis

Those are good ideas too! I especially like the first one because I can picture TinfoilHat-tan being hysterically paranoid, screaming "THEY'RE OUT TO GET ME!! THEY'RE OUT TO GET ME!!"

The second one I never considered or really knew but that would be a good add on to her personality, that is if she's willing to leave her hiding spots from the aliens and other things she fears! :D

And I like that third idea too but of course TinfoilHat isn't expected to network for obvious reasons! Bu yeah, she should have a gun too! Another thing she could add to her defensive arsenal (not to mention look really cool and psychopathic!). Wielding a gun and having an electric force field? TinfoilHat-tan could be a force to be reckoned with! Especially when she doesn't have her hat on because then she becomes really tough!

Nice pictures, btw! My favorite one is the one of Sonata and Homeko because it makes me happy to see pictures of Mac-tans and Windows-tans getting along! ^^

Thanks! I'm probably going to start working on a few different ideas...I'll post them up here as soon as I'm done.

I like the whole Mac-tan/Windows-tan thing too ;) They must realize that they have some things in common. I did that because I like Mac and Windows both...and it annoys me to hear all the arguing about which is better...Windows has good points, Mac has good points, and both have bad points. The two OSs aren't as bad as the zealots on either side would have one think. Well, putting this thread back on track, here are some OS-tans I did today:

Flirty Vistan (Home premium):

Wow, great work again! Especially Hacchan's and Secchan's eyes!of course the rest is also good, but I really like how you drew them!

Nice drawing Bella! To "think different" was nice touch as a statement. Hope we could see you could make more :D

Here are my Tinfoil Hat Linux Tans!

I did a young one...hiding under her covers and clutching a flashlight:

Here's the same character...Older but nonetheless paranoid!

Aurora Borealis

Very nice! I like the first one because it captures her paranoia well (and looks cute too. I especially like what you did with the eyes!) and I like the second one because TinfoilHat-tan looks very good in spy gear! ;010
