QuoteI do. I made an Integer Life thread in General (IL is not OStan-based) in case anyone wants to comment..
QuoteAwesome, what a surprise! I'm LOVING her hair, and her eyes are great, too!And I will post the sketches, maybe in my artwork thread.
QuoteHey, look Dragonfly BSD-chan...AMIGA-SAMA'S OVER THERE!
QuoteI have to figure out what she'd look like in my comic; she'd be younger, of course, and maybe have longer, darker hair.
QuoteWhat a long, strange, existential, postmodern art-house odyssey it has been so far. I'm still trying to figure out the deep symbolism of some of the episodes @.@
QuoteYou just read my mind! I thought of a fun little story where VMS-sama has a rather rickety sailboat. She gives Linux-chan a ride on when she discovers the girl has run low on funds and cannot afford a ship ticket. Along the way, Linux-sama's affinity for spears will be explained
QuoteI don't know who else may be on the boat, though...maybe just one or two other CIOST members.
QuoteDrats, you've spoiled it! But Linux-sama, of course, doesn't know this at the time and thinks she's incurred the wrath of Unix-sama O___O
QuoteI think a VectorLinux-tan would be best made in Inkscape. Eh? Get it?
QuoteAh, it was a diferent time! Unix-sama was not even a decade old at this point
Quote*Mmmmm...gothic Unix-samas....**Thinks about Unix-sama and C-One-tan in Unix-sama emulation mode dressed in emo outfits...*Oh man, now I know what Slackware-chan's daydreaming about when she gets that far-off look in her eyes...
QuoteIndeed. But Linus considered it the best idea in the development of Linux to GPL it.
QuotePage 21:Notes: not much to say here, VMS-sama finally has her rings up and running, Unix-sama is....proceeding with caution.
QuotePage 22: Notes: Sacrilege! Blasphemy! Sacrilege! Apparently, Unix-sama does need to exercise some degree of control over her forcefield, otherwise it'll break. In her defense, though, the last person who fought her using a ring spell was Multics-sama, so it's understandable that she'd be a bit freaked out...
QuotePage 23:Notes: Look at that sprightly, opportunistic expression on VMS-sama's face! Meanwhile, Unix-sama is trying to get that forcefield back...don't ask what the "vrrrrrrr" noise is. I have no idea (but...I suppose it has to do with re-generating the forcefield).
QuotePage 24: Notes: That "booom" comes from the sudden change in air temperature caused by the forcefield being generated (think, how lightning causes the air to be heated resulting in a crack of thunder). In panel 2, that's supposed to be a shockwave, as evidenced by VMS-sama being knocked onto her butt in the next panel
QuoteOh yeah, now Unix-sama is pissed O___O
QuoteIn other news, I've been spending my rather dull afternoon working a bit on a picture with two antique OS-tans that I have yet to vector sketch. Can't say more than that, though. Okay fine it's ITS-san and CTSS-sama.
QuoteAnd I finished watching Kino's Journey. Oh...wow...that was a really strange but great show. Definitely one of my favorites! (I say that for about every show I watch...because I don't give much time to shows I dislike. Lawl.)
QuoteYo Bella-hime! I'm back again, and ready for my periodic postings. ^.^
QuoteWow! This penguin is amazed! The characters look really realistic!
QuoteThis is epic! Even though VMS-san's ring attack was not totally an ace in the hole like I thought it would be, it at least saved her from getting scorched by Unix's firey fury! (For now at least...)
QuoteOh,... and that reminds me. I have to do my 10% tonight,... haven't touched anything art-related at all this week, aside from graphics for a cool new installer I'm building from scratch. ^___^
Quote*sonic boom shudders the canyon walls*Whoops,... guess she flew on out of there. ^.^;Course,... I wonder how long it will take her to realize just where "there" is. When in pursuit of Amiga-sama, she tends to not think things,... very,... clearly.... ^^;
QuoteIn other words,... she'd be the spitting image of UNIX-sama, but with cute floppy bunny years. Dear GAWDS, you're trying to smother me with cute, aren't ya?! `v'
QuoteYou mean shooting a bunny rabbit with a laserscope silencer is a metaphor for something?! @__@
Quote... j/k j/k. ^^'Now, I definitely did enjoy the very "Aesop fables" and "Little Prince"-like qualities of the series. I definitely liked Kino's origin (in the land of Instant-Adults), although one of the OVAs go further in depth regarding how cute-little-girl Kino turns into stoic-Motorad-driving-Pursueader-wielding-traveler Kino. `v'
QuoteFufu! That would be a riot! ^v^Course,... the fact that VMS-sama would still be shaken and stirred about NT-chan,... outta make for some very interesting quips.... ^.^
QuoteVxWorks-tan would've made a great first-time friend to VMS-sama (notwithstanding their similar names), and certainly would've been adventurous-enough to ride on such a death-trap.She was born in 1985, so would've been relatively seasoned-enough by then to offer council to VMS-sama, as well as tacit guidance to the young traveler Linux-sama. ^^
QuoteAll the more reason to comfront the UNIX strike force with ZOUNDS upon ZOUNDS of Linux distros (or at least as many as you can scrounge around in 1997...)! ^.^
QuoteActually no, eh....But I'll nod politely, eh. ^___^;
QuoteTell that to VMS-sama, who's practically a little pup in that comic. ^.^I imagine that if it were modern-day VMS-sama in her place, even UNIX-sama would not stand a chance. Not trying to be blasphemous,.. just adhering to some very simple and very troubling statistics... Â¬.Â¬'....BTW, if I get crushed by a pair of flying boots again, do take over my life's work for me. ^__^'
QuoteOh noes! Does this mean that Slackware-tan is actually a "geezer"?! @____@'[sorry,... vague reference to Zettai Karen Children]This can't end well,.. now wonder she gets beat on a lot. ^^;*very slowly and casually inches a few feet away from her*
QuoteWOOHOO!!!!!!! Another COMIC BARRAGE by BELLA-HIME!!!! Where does she get this untapped source of precious Win? ^v^
QuoteThe panels here are mostly movement, so can't really comment much aside from VMS-sama's cute expressions (especially that WTF-look in Panel 2), and the fact that UNIX-sama almost looks like she's tip-toeing there. ^.^
QuoteGAAAAAH!!! A shocked UNIX-sama! Enough that you can clearly see the Bell Labs logos in her eyes! @v@
QuotePlus a very awesome flashback appearance of a peak-power Multics-sama. ^___^And some [dare I say it] "moe" shots of the goddess struggling to keep her forcefield. ^^Suddenly I feel the urge to call up C-One-chan, and mail order some goth girl dresses. ^3^
QuoteAnd a very lovely way you drew said sprightly, opportunistic expression as well. ^^I take it though this was a tactical mistake on her part, as she forfeited her near-impenetrable defensive stance all for the sake of a quick bit of offense. Very dangerous considering UNIX-sama is a master of defense herself. ^^Still,... can't blame the poor girl,....I mean imagine the fame she would've gotten had she inadvertently vanquished UNIX-sama? If not for the fact the heights are reversed, it'd have been a modern day David & Goliath. ^^;
QuoteKewlness! ^V^And with Kino's Journey all but watched, you might have more ideas regarding ITS-san. ^__^
QuoteBTW, what's the new animal you have queued up for CTSS-sama? ^.^
QuoteGreat job! ^V^Now that you're done,.. tell me just how much our crazy-kooky OS-tan world resembles Kino's arthouse of a world, where you can travel to a medieval town one day, and an ultra high-tech city the next. ^.^
QuoteIf C-Chan was periodic...that'd be one fscked up sine curve... Ãµ_Ã•
QuoteHowever, given OS/2-sama was still knee-deep in the war, I would actually recommend that RISC OS-tan be the first person to meet Linux-sama,
Quotegiven how closely the two systems have followed each other historically. ^.^
QuoteYeah...that fourth episode was pretty interesting, but also very strange. My favorites, however...were probably the "Land of Wizards" and "Land of Books" (ep. 8 and 9)
QuoteI might just Linux-sama's early storyline, and then show "flashbacks" from characters she encounters...and how they ended up on the path that led them to her (kinda hard to explain clearly). This way, I'll be able to explore the backstories of several OS-tans
QuoteAh, good idea! That would be a hoot, for both VMS-sama and VxWorks-tan would have their dreams of someday having a better craft to travel in...a submarine for one, a spaceship for the other
QuoteEh? VectorLinux-tan being made in a Vector graphics program...?
QuoteMe: Well, old systems can still be of use; the Canadian Department of Defense ran Multics until 2000.Friend: Yeah, but this is Canada we're talking about. Their park rangers still ride horses!
QuoteAww, you haven't notice before...I drew them in all the close up shots.
QuoteAh, RISC OS-tan would work well. I've always wanted to draw her, anyhow; but all I really know about her is, she's British, physically indestructible, and a good marksman
QuoteI also wondered what OS/2-san was up to at this point. She was out of the MS family, I think...was she with IBM?
QuoteYou mean RISC-san and Linux-sama? The only connection between RISC and Linux I know of is the ROX window manager...ROX was designed to look like the RISC OS GUI, and actually means RISC on X (window manager).Now I gotta do a Puppy-chan cosplaying as RISC-san pic XD
QuotePage 24Notes: In panel 2, VMS-sama's comment about the water being hot comes from Unix-sama having heated it up with the forcefield.
QuotePage 25Notes: Just to explain what's going on, Unix-sama has created a forcefield directly in front of VMS-sama; in panel 3, it looks as if VMS-sama has run into a wall, which is what has happened...don't ask what happened to that water she was holding, she must have let go of it when she struck the wall.Oh yeah, and apparently Unix-sama has catlike agility. Who knew?
QuoteI is still like...recovering from the season finale of Lost...there was liek, a gunfight...and an HUGE asplosion...and, and time traveling and inter-dimensional travel and vile vortices, Casmir Effects and espers and teleporting
QuoteThe bad thing is, I keep getting the urge to make a mini Lost/OS-tan parody crossover comic x__x
QuoteIf you don't follow, don't worry; for we Losties are about as bad as Trekkies....if not worse. They have their spaceships, we have our uber-electromagnetism.*silence**ticks*
QuoteAhem...oh yes, here, have page 26:
QuoteNotes: I was being quite lazy; this page may not be the best, but I needed it mostly to bridge an accidental gap between pages 25 and 27. And also to explain how Unix-sama tackled VMS-sama.
QuoteFufufu... ^.^Well aside from "Land of Adults", I do agree "Land of Wizards" was my favorite, although I also had a thing for "Tale of Mechanical Dolls". ^___^However, if you can get the movie "In Order to Do Something â€"Life Goes Onâ€"", I think you'll love it. Won't say why. ^__^
QuoteWell who says the submarine can't travel into space too? I don't think it's beneath VMS-sama to have watched Nadia: Secret of Blue Water at one point in her life... fufu.... ^__^'
QuoteWell with today's oil prices, who's laughing now? ^v^
QuoteFor an A$C member, she's amazingly level-headed and sweet. If not for the fact that she's physically indestructible and a good marksman, she could easily pass for a "girl next door" type.
QuoteHowever, she IS an Acorn type, and follows a long tradition of fastidious professionalism. Unlike her older sisters, she takes it a step further with an unhealthy obsession with appearance. Her room MUST be in good order and dust-free, or else she'll clean it all up again, for the 10th time if need be. Her handwriting MUST be perfect,... she's been known to toss or burn whole manuscripts if so much as an unremovable ink splotch finds its way in some remote whitespace.And above all, her hair and clothing must be trim and proper. While she can't be killed, a cunning opponent can't easily incapacitate her by damaging her clothing. She will literally curl up in a ball feeling worse than dirt if so much as a heel of a shoe is broken.
QuoteOh yeah, she was in the employ of IBM until 2006. However, she didn't physically move out until about 2000. ^^
QuoteTook the words right outta my mouth. ^.^Given how many crafty desktop skins have been designed for Puppy-chan (including half a dozen Mac ones), I wouldn't be surprised if cosplaying is one of P-chan's specialties. ^___^She already did Ryoga, after all.... ^__~Also, I hadn't realized it,... but P-chan is technically an Aussie. ^v^
QuoteHer catlike agility is of course perfectly normal. ^^After all, who would expect a sorceress (especially a daughter of a powerful, yet physically-frail sorceress) to be quite so,... physical? It's bound to catch more than a number of people off guard. ^___^
QuoteI do admit that VMS-sama does look a bit strange in panel 3 (mainly the arms and hands), but as this is an action shot, it doesn't matter much (or rather the motion blur masks that a bit. Not to mention that UNIX-sama's ounce clearly takes center stage there. ^^
QuoteSoooooooooooooooooooo,.... like......... you visited the Mac House or something? @@'
Quote*C-chan stares* O____O
QuoteHmmm,.... that Panel 1 is interesting. I'm wondering if UNIX-sama did one of the following to VMS-sama:1) Burned her up.2) Pressed her down with a forcefield.3) Teleported her to a different location (or isolated dream world).4) ^^;All three have possibilites, given the "thud" and sorry state that poor VMS-sama is in in Panel 3. ^o^
QuoteHey, just like the Indestructible Cheerleader! Why are the indestructible ones always the girls-next-door?(I'm giving the next person who hears me make a pop-culture reference authority to chuck their instrument of choice at my noggin)
QuoteHmm, now I remember hearing something about this. The girl has OCD Mach three! But on the good side, one would not have to use violence to subdue RISC OS-tan...only throwing some paint on her outfit O__O
Quote...and now she's in a self-made bunker compound, plotting the destruction of M$ along with her cohorts or something. No?
QuoteI realized both, from the minute I drew Pup-chan. I even remember mentioning I thought she'd be an XP-tan cosplayer, and I always envisioned her with an Australian accent. G'day mate!
