QuoteThat Bomber-tan is DA BOMB!!! She loves bombs and explosives as much as some of the Mac-tans do! Also having telepathic control over bombs, ability to materialize bombs, landmine bombs, impulse to bomb things.... Wow! That girl's got MAD BOMBING SKILLS! And that she's also friends with Acme-tan makes her even more awesome!
QuoteWhy thank you, Gus-san, but thank YOU for making them cute to begin with. ^v^ Now if you are interested in making some minis, try downloading their SVGs so you can save on double work... ^___^ http://ostan-collections.net/downloads.php?cat=7 Use the vector graphics program Inkscape to open those files. http://www.inkscape.org/ Don't worry about a thing as the program is free AND open source, and best of all cross-platform (so whether you're working in Windows, Mac or Linux, Inkscape will always be around)! ^v^ The Acme-tan will likely be the most useful for you, as it already includes the template in progress. Changing her expression is as easy as hiding and unhiding layers. ^.^
QuoteWow! Acme-sama has attained such epic fame already, she's already been given an apprentice! ^v^ Great work again, and like Aurora-sama said, she'd make for a very seamless ally to the Mac-tans! ^___^ Better watch out, else the Windoze-tans are gonna start thinking that Bomber-tan is a hitwoman (hitvirus?) hired by the rival Apple family.... ^____^; Unfortunately her Mini will have to wait a bit as I'm in a crunch with other OS-tan drawings, but rest assured she is on queue! ^.^ Added after 30 minutes: But doesn't mean I haven't done my mandatory Acme-tan Mini of the Day... ^.^
QuoteI admire any woman who blows things to bits! You can do it, Bomber-tan! Does this mean that Acme is a sensei?
QuoteYEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHh!!!! OUR FIRST GENERAL!!!!!!!!!! ^V^ OMG, I'm so sorry dude for delaying my Minis these past two days, but seeing this fine beauty that looks like 2K-tan (except with 50x WOW Factor) is gonna get me to jumpstart the project ASAP!!! ^____^
QuoteBTW, just outta curiosity, has your reception here been what you expected? ^^
QuotePS: Given the number of drawings you've produced to date, I'd say it's about that time you considered opening up your own User Gallery. We could use additional recruits..... ^___^ http://ostan-collections.net/imeeji/index.php?cat=1 If you need instructions, I'll just redirect you to this tutorial I keep bouncing around: http://ostan-collections.net/post-34002.html#34002
QuoteOh yeah, Acme-sama of the Day: This one is the Candlelight Vigil Edition (CVE). ^__^
QuoteHeh somethin told me you'd like Brain-sama, I figured her being a general was a must due to the fact she has impecable strategy skills (for one doesn't always have to be a destroyer to be powerful)
QuoteTo be honest, It's taken me by surprise, the usual places I post my art, rarely get as much reception as I do here
QuoteQuote: Heh somethin told me you'd like Brain-sama, I figured her being a general was a must due to the fact she has impecable strategy skills (for one doesn't always have to be a destroyer to be powerful) Precisely. ^__^ In fact, as history shows, cunning and subterfuge is always, in the long term, far more effective than just plain brute force. ^__^ .... *sweatdrops* I just hope there's no such thing as a Pinky virus, or things'll get weird.... ^^; Quote: To be honest, It's taken me by surprise, the usual places I post my art, rarely get as much reception as I do here I'm glad for that. ^__^ I'm not sure if everyone here is on the same page as I am in creating a new subculture; however, just speaking for myself, make it my personal goal not only to help, but to encourage and motivate new artists. The Japanese artists didn't become great just by sitting around and drooling over other people's artwork. They're able to create such magnificent works of art -- and in such great quantities -- because they just DRAW. I don't know how much encouragement they get from friends and peers and society as a whole, but I do know for certain that you have works that deserve to be hoisted on a museum wall alongside drawings that seem apt for a 3-year old, and yet they all continue to draw, always finding new and incredible ways to improve their style and boost efficiency. Are only comparative disadvantage is that many of our Western societies have lost that sense of fulfilllment, openness and participation (with respect to artwork anyway). Since it is true that misery loves company, it becomes very easy for someone of a mediocre mindset to criticize a creative individual for not drawing in a preset style (e.g., Anime), or discourage said person from attempting it at all if he's non-Japanese. This is done in the hopes of keeping everyone around him mediocre, perhaps to elevate his own status? It seems ironic yet fitting that such people are so quick to denounce free artists as "egotistical", when they themselves are often some of the most self-centered people you'll ever have the displeasure of meeting. Unfortunately this works very often, and a lot of would-be artists who post in particularly nasty places will emo very quickly because of majority rule ("what's the point of drawing if EVERYONE will hate me and my work"?). This may sound overly dramatic, but with each discouraged artist there's one extinguished hope, which -- in tandem with other discouragements in real life -- ultimately leads to yet another discontented soul in our hopeless, bleeding culture. Therefore, you can tell how proud I am of anyone in our forum who chooses to draw, and how overjoyed I am to see the number of artists grow incrementally each day. That's because with each additional bit of creativity, we lay another brick in the foundation of a new culture, one that sees the end of people giving up something before they even try it, and the beginning of a sense of "initiative". If you want something done, you just get up and do it, not wait for someone to do it for you -- that's the kind of mindset that not only creates proud and talented people, but also builds fine countries! ^^ So regardless of what you draw or how you think you draw, please keep doing it. Even if you think my praise shallow, know that I have full confidence that you will seek to improve and challenge yourself. Already I see an amazing improvement in your drawing style with Brain-sama, which leads me to believe that you're willing to explore new techniques and horizons as you take in inspiration and encouragement around you! ^o^ The more people do it, the more comfortable others will feel to jump in the bandwagon. And if they aren't comfortable drawing, perhaps they'd prefer to contribute with a story? Or a song? Or a 3d model? Or a Wiki edit? Or in gathering pictures to grow our gallery? Or in collecting links to valuable sites? Or in advertising our sites via other outlets? Or in brainstorming? Or in providing technical support? Or by creating a video game? Or by creating a full-fledged video? And ultimately, perhaps by collaborating with various other individuals to pool their resources for one ambitious and marvelous project! But the least anyone can do is simply to cheer others on in their artistic endeavors, because when it comes time for it, we'll want them to do the same for us one day. ^^ The more people participate in this, the more exciting this exchange of ideas and talent becomes, and the easier it becomes for everyone to pursue our goals (which at the end of the day, are a lot similar than we'd like to think)! In any event, that's what amounts to C-chan pep talk these days. Sorry if it's long, but when I write with SOUL I just get possessed like that. ^.^ (probably in dire need of a spellchecker too, but too lazy for it...) -v-; Added after 1 hours 1 minutes: And to end with a bang, a little something to put me back on track.... ^.^
