QuoteI... I must admit I am impressed... You transformed my poor sketch in a beautiful girl... You art is really superior...
QuoteDon't exagerate... Don't you forgot you were full of commitments BEFORE you were engaged into the Linux project? So why you continued in a sooo big project if you KNEW you could not finish it?
QuoteSad to read that...
QuoteWith Amiga-Sama you gave the Amiga new visibility beacuse OS-TANs are present also in international places like Wikipedia, and it will be visible almost forever (or until it will exist the WEB...)
QuoteRead it here: http://arosshow.blogspot.com/2008/05/eric-schwartz-interview.html Have you read it? It is interesting and it is just kinda like I intend to interview you...
QuoteBitplane Italia magazine it is bi-monthly interviewing persons who made Amiga famous... And believe me, you gave a little but significant visibility to Amiga. You deserve this interview and also the most interesting thing for amigan readers is the fact that you were never (and still are not) an Amigan User...
QuotePerhaps had had you wanted to generate tons of messages, topics and comments about Amiga, MorphOS, etcetera, and a whole of traffic here on OS-Tans? The moderators had had kicked out of forum both of us because of our talking only regarding Amiga and stuffing all discussions with our "very intelligent" comments we made each other for example regarding "how much tall should had being Reaction Guy"... (Obviously I made heavy sarcasm when I said "intelligent comments").
QuoteBeautiful! I see the improvements to MOS-chan, while still staying true to Raffaele's original sketch. And AROS-chan is just too darned adorable! I mean, I just want to reach in and squeeze her checks or something @.@
QuoteAnd thanks for trying some of my fold techniques
QuoteThis sounds like an incredible idea! But...with all due respect, this would be like the Spruce Goose of pictures (in other words, very ambitious and difficult to finish). But still...that would have been awesome...
QuoteBTW, who is this ReactionGUY?
QuoteYou have to focus on the people that appreciate your good deeds. Of course there are going to be those whom you don't get along with, (this I know all too well), both online and in real life. You just have to put that out of your mind. To quote a Mama Cass song...you've got to make your own kind of music. And sing your own song, even if nobody else sings along.
QuoteWell thanks, but I do agree with Bella-hime. I've always looked down on notions of "inferior/superior" artwork, because that's not what we need. What we need is "quantity" -- we need everyone to contribute artwork frequently and consistently, despite the initial quality. I feel that part of the strength behind the Japanese art boards lies in the fact that nearly everyone contributes, regardless of artistic skill (which will inevitably evolve over time with the added practice).
QuoteIt's a common belief among my peers [not here] that because the Japanese produce "superior" artwork, there's no point in drawing at all since their drawings will "suck" either way and it's better to leave art to the "big boys". A self-centered person might see this as an opportunity to become a big fish in a small pond,...But someone a bit more socially-conscious might see this rampant Defeatism as a "disease", and one's artwork as just contributing to make it worse. You can imagine where I think I fall into.
QuotePeople who draw frequently, positively and fantastically are my heroines.Since I don't draw much or contribute much anymore, I'm just an old "Has-Been" now -- it's not false modesty, just plain fact.
QuoteIt's called being "Macho".Think of it as an old adventurer still desperately clinging to exciting pastimes, even well past his prime. It was hard for me to admit that I had lost my spark, so I kept trying to pursue more pictures to see if one could jumpstart my battery. It never came,...and once I got hooked on BASH scripting, I had to finally admit I just wasn't the same pig as before.
QuoteSince MOS-chan 2.0 is out next month, I figure I can probably still add her to the picture at least (I still need to draw Amy-chan in some way). But once done, I'll finish up the picture, lock it up, and publish it as Final -- just so you can at least have something more concrete to show around. Whether I can one day return to finish the background is left up to Fate,... but since I will be Open-Sourcing the picture file, anyone is free to do so in my place.As for myself, my overly-ambitious drawing days are over.
QuoteWell I am actually quite proud to contribute to the Free and Open Source community.I may not get immediate financial benefit, but it improves my computer software/hardware skills and knowledge, AND it makes me feel fulfilled and part of something greater than myself.
QuoteBesides, it's also self-penance for my years as a pirate,... not for the harm to the companies (most of whom I have no love for), but rather to the people I've helped lock into a viscious cycle of illegitimate software addiction, computer illiteracy, and over-dependence. It'll take years to undo not only my past foolish actions, but also the handiwork of my peers, which I can see everyday in the drop-dead blank expressions of your average apathetic PC user.
QuoteWell I suppose if you can take it from that angle, I guess that can explain why I might be useful. In that regard, though, Bella-hime should be praised by Multicians for creating not only a drawing of MULTICS-sama, but also an entire deep-rich backstory.
QuoteHahaha....No but seriously, I want ReactionGUY to be short. I despise Absolute Perfection, so if there's to be a Flawless, Perfect Manâ,,¢, there has to be a "small" catch that prevents him from having an unending HAREM of girls that would undoubtedly follow such a Deity being.In other words, if you don't want that, you better post up your sketches quick before my version BURNS into everyone's memories. BWHAHAHA!!
QuoteSqueeze away. ^^But don't forget,... the character design is yours. `v'I just gave her a new coat to reflect the new Logo. ^^
QuoteAnd don't forget, that wouldn't have been the ONLY overly-ambitious picture I planned to do. Still in the works would've been the 1985 Commodore family portrait, as well as the snapshot of the UNIX base, or my rendition of Vistan along with the tiny UMPC OSes. And let's not forget z/OS-sama. ^^;
QuoteAmiga-san's last and presumably final boyfriend.Raffaele has given me a whole list of male characters that could serve as Amiga-san's lovers. Despite the fact that I may have a very different outlook about Amiga-san's personality, I do agree that she probably has no-end of would-be love interests, not only because she still has looks to kill, but also because she's unabashedly friendly and overly-trusting. Much to C64-tan's chagrin, she would literally date anyone as long as they ask her (and aren't obviously evil).However, it's more a Belldandy-style politeness, and she really has no interest in any of them -- and it shows especially after she puts them to work in the Binteji Renmei fields, building orphanages, doing volunteer work at a hospital, or any number of activities that Amiga-sama FAR prefers over a cumbersome love life.For xyz reason that I won't get into yet, ReactionGUY is an exception.Not that I plan it to be an easy love life, though,... despite that they get along beautifully with eachother, the rest of the world seems eager to meddle in the private affairs of such an abnormal couple.
QuoteOkay,... who's Mama Cass? ^^;
QuoteBut yeah, I understand what you mean (hey, I did say you helped me stay out of retirement?). ^^My mistake, though, was that I introduced money into the factor, so it just made things more unbearable in my particular case. For that and other reasons, I'll probably cease that until I can be sure a proper management system is seet in place.Now that I'm in retirement,... for sure, I can just chill. ^___~
Quote from: "C-Chan"the quietest Amigoid probably has the greatest potential. I don't remember if I ever drafted her profile here in public, but I might rewrite it again in another thread.3) You can read more about it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ReAction_GUI.But in short, ReActionGUY stands for ReAction GUI, which is a GUI toolkit for AmigaOS (in fact, its the standard toolkit for 4.0). Think of it as comparable to GTK and QT in Linux. ^__^
QuoteIn essence, ReActionGUY-kun helps modernize Amiga-san's appearance (and to a certain extent, MOS-chan's and AROS-chan's too).
Quote Making them a couple could probably make factual sense, although not sure if the same can be said of my notion that MOS-chan is not particularly "fond" of him. (A running gag being that she's always trying to convince her mother to dump him in favor of a REAL man,... after which she inserts a long laundry list of colorful-but-otherwise-uninspiring ex-boyfriends, such as Zorro-kun).
Quote from: "Bella"And my deepest regards if I sounded like a stoned hippie for the entirety of the post. And sorry if I hijacked your thread, Raffaele
QuoteNot correct...MOS-Chan and AROS-Chan make no use of Reaction GUI.They uses MUI (Magic User Intrerface)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magic_User_InterfaceAlso Amiga-Sama can make use of MUI if she loads that libraries.
QuoteMOS-Chan never meet either kuns...She has no relations at all with Reaction GUY, as she makes no use of that interface library, and Zorro Bus was dropped ages ago with Amiga 4000...Actual AmigaONE running AmigaOS and Pegasos II running MorphOS make use of PCI-BUS...

Well true, it's not the standard on them,... but given that MUI and ReAction share the same ancestor,
Quote and given that Amiga can make use of MUI (provided the libraries are loaded), I assumed the same could be done with AROS/MorphOS.
QuoteQuoteMOS-Chan never meet either kuns...She has no relations at all with Reaction GUY, as she makes no use of that interface library, and Zorro Bus was dropped ages ago with Amiga 4000...Actual AmigaONE running AmigaOS and Pegasos II running MorphOS make use of PCI-BUS...Ah, but half the beauty of the OS-tan world is that you create situations that normally wouldn't happen in real life. Windows ME and Mac OS9 would not like eachother at all, and yet they're shown as somehow a couple.,
QuoteLikewise, MOS-chan may not use ReAction in real life -- but in the storyline, it would be impossible for Amiga-sama to have a boyfriend without MOS-chan knowing about it. `v'
QuoteAnd likewise, Zorro-kun was dumped ages ago, but somehow fails to get the message and keeps trying to fish for a date. MOS-chan USED to hate his guts,... but with ReAction GUY to deal with, she'd rather pair her mother back with the normal-sized, faux-Spanish spouting male chauvinist , rather than the kind and noble shrimp that is her current boyfriend. ^^;
Quote from: "C-Chan"PS: Oh, and fyi, AROS Kitty is apparently suffering from LongCat-syndrome.
QuoteWhy you said that? Aros Kitty arms and legs are black on black... If you enhance and evidence it, then you wull see it is perfectly normal cat...
QuoteHOW BEAUTIFUL! Sure C-Chan made a very goooood artwork here! Young MOS 2.0 is really pretty cute... My congratulations... Also here I made a little rendering of all three Chans, with Vesuvio vulcan in the background, just to insert the girls in a detailed ambient...
QuoteCan you please indicate me some of your countries most known and beautiful places? I will search the 3D DEM files and will render it, inserting the Girls in that scenes, to honour your nations too. I need very known places as mountains, gulfs, touristic sides... (Something that it is worth rendering in 3D)
QuoteTo C-Chan... What is the name of the famous Volcano that could be spotted from Mexico City???
QuoteC-Chan, please I need an important information... Is your image intended to be distributable? Can I use it to show the Amiga fans that detailed MOS-Chans and AROS Chan exist?
Quote from: C-ChanAwww crap, you're right, I failed. She's supposed to look like the famous LongCat.... Also in this photo seems to me perfectly long cat...Cats have a very long body...But sure this one in the photo is not a cat with such an exaggerate long dorsal spine, that could reveal genetical disease problems and over-stretched bones...QuoteOriginally I had intentions of having MOS2-chan ONLY carry Amy-chan -- however, in order to make the process faster, I had all the Amigoid animals convene on her. The idea is that, because she's the youngest, they've all endeared themselves to her.AHAHAHAHAH! The kohai girl carry all the weights for the two senpai girls...QuoteQuoteAlso here I made a little rendering of all three Chans, with Vesuvio vulcan in the background, just to insert the girls in a detailed ambient... Well thank you, Raffaele. Had I known you were going to stick them on a background, I would have submitted a transparent PNG. Perhaps to save time, I could have you supply the background -- certainly would be faster than drawing one from scratch. Well... I could not resist...Three beautiful girls and still no background...And do not worry...Once you created a png image, it is easy to make big areas of color as transparent...QuoteSomehow I can picture them visiting Palenque, although if water is concerned you can try any of the coastal cities like Veracruz, Merida, and Campeche. For something more touristy (that's not Acapulco), try Cabo San Lucas for some stunning Pacific scenery.As far I known these Pacific zones of Mexico are quite flat, and have no elevation mountains that could be used as really reckognizable in a 3D rendered scene...Can you confirm or deny this fact?Maybe Acapulco has the famous rock on the ocean, used for the jumpings of swimmers...Should see if it could be rendered well, but the DEM files are not so detailed. to show it.. ;014 Palenque? Palenque, Palenque...Hum... VistaPro 3D rendering program once was famous for being capable of rendering realistic Aztec and Mayan Pyramids...And once there is a free version of VistaPro on an Amiga magazine floppy disk...Should found it in my collection...QuoteQuoteTo C-Chan... What is the name of the famous Volcano that could be spotted from Mexico City??? Why the Popocatepetl of course. Kinda look like Mt. Fuji, no? (fufufufu...) Thanks... Some hours ago I found it by googlesearching...Unfortunately I did not remember full name, beacuse Popocatepetl for us italian speakers sounds like a tongue twister... o_o
