OS-tan Sketchbook pg. 4

More pages from my imaginary OS-tan artbook. :lol:

Clockwise from centre:

-OS/2 Warp-tan. She's a half-sister to the Windows-tans and was supposed to be THE flagship MS OS, but was separated from her family after IBM and Microsoft broke up collaborations in the late 80s. She now fosters a deep hatred for Microsoft and the Windows-tans (mostly NT-tan, who more or less "replaced" her). She secretly yearns for reunion with her old family and wishes she had never been driven to a life on the fringe.

(Heh-- Boulevard of Broken Dreams just began playing on the radio. I hate Greenday, but it's such an appropriate song for OS/2-tan :P)

She also has prehensile hair that she uses as extra appendages (symbolizing OS/2's multitasking abilities) and enjoys dressing in Star Trek-themed attire.

-RISC-tan. Representing the Acorn RISC OS, RISC-tan is a very prim and proper Englishwoman, who just happens to be physically indestructible (think, like Claire Bennet from Heroes). While her body can regenerate from any sort of injury, her ego is very fragile (see image).

-Windows NT-tan... because somebody needed to be sticking a sword through RISC-tan.

-eComStation-tan. OS/2-tan's little sister, eCS-tan is carefree, playful and athletic but perhaps a bit awkward.

-Tandy TRS 80-tan. Based off of the Radioshack-sold microcomputer, TRS 80-tan is a very old fashioned and puritanical type. Likes throwing books at people and preaching.

-QNX Neutrino-tan. Based off a little-known version of Unix, QNX Neutrino-tan is a mad scientist.

-Mac OSX Leopard-tan and Windows 2.0-tan. Er... this is my computer at the moment, cause I got Windows 2.0 successfully running under an emulator. Woot!

-Multics-sama, stripped down to ring zero (over 9,000 points go to whoever gets that reference). I was trying to figure out what Multics-sama would wear on a trip to the beach or the bath; I realized she would be one of the few characters in OS-tandom that would never, NEVER, be caught wearing anything resembling a swimsuit (or anything else skimpy for that matter). So here she is, in a modestish swimming dress.

-Emacs-kun in the background. Wearing an old-timey bathing suit. He's here mostly for lulz, but also because he's very pretty. I like drawing pretty things.

Oh this is simply golden. ^________^

Leopard-sama + 2.0-chan: I'd have to concur with Leopard-sama. KAWAII~!!! ...with an extra "wai". ^___^
Even as a sketch, 2.0-chan's hair is just so fluidly define, and she has a face that could melt stone. ^^

OS/2-sama: SEX-EH!!! >v<
Course you're no stranger to drawing sexy OS/2-tans,... [link]
This is the first time I've seen you draw her in full battle pose, it is VERY cool. ^____^
Funny how if memory serves, it was SleepyD's idea to make her hair prehensile. ^^

QNX-sama: GAH!!!!!! KEWT!!!!
She looks so cute and mischievous here! Must be the combination of combed down hair, puppy eyes and Bella Grin™. ^___^

TRSDOS-chan: Also quite the cute little zealot, though not as much as neo QNX-chan. ^__^
No sign of those ginormous books she wields as projectile weapons. ^-^
But she'd be very happy to hear the Colonel's comment about the Radio Shack employee saying she was in stock a few weeks ago, lol. ^^

eCS-chan: Cuteness incarnate!!!!!!!! And definitely as notably athletic as with your old picture of eCOS-tan (I think I mentioned once before the two girls are eerily similar in many ways). ^^
Quick sort-of correction: she's actually OS/2-sama's SELF-PROCLAIMED little sister, and just follows her idol around much in the same way as FreeVMS-chan does with Shark Lady. However, I did leave that fact a bit open-ended in case a future sappy story COULD prove that she really IS OS/2-tan's biological little sister, or maybe even a daughter! ^^'

[and if that were to happen, OS/2-tan's character would change almost overnight, as she'd finally stop living in the past and be a little more mindful of her own little family she has now]

RISC-tan: Aw, this picture is PURR-FECT! >v<
Yeah, I had hoped to show her indestructibility in some way, but surprise surprise never happened. So thankfully youc ame right in and fixed that. Thank you so much! ^___^

One of the most annoying things for OS/2-tan is that this is usually enough to paralyze RISC-chan in a fight, so her indestructibility is pretty much useless. ^^'
[and I guess there'd be more than one "just fight naked!" jokes tossed around from time to time as a result... ^^; ]
On the other hand, she's a mean markswoman and a superb writer, and certainly has been a loyal and caring companion to OS/2-tan for almost 2 decades now.

Multics-sama: Well in THOSE days, she might as well be naked. LE GASP! She's showing SOME ARM!! how scandalous! >v<

*coveres eyes before they burn any further*

She still has a broken wing, so I'm guessing this is pre-Rebirth Multics-sama. ^__^
Zero Ring bathing suit is nicely gorgeous (and somewhat.... see through...? *nose bleeds* ), and again you're having too much fun with the hair nowadays cause it came out downright majestic (despite the fact that here it's composed mainly of zipzag-like strokes). Smug face and smile is for the lolz. ^^

And speaking of lolz, EMACS-kun is filled to the brim with it. Between this and Vi-kun being something of a fawning magnet, these Editor-kuns just seem incapable of leading boring lives. ^__^

Masterful work as always! ^^
