OS tan - Linux by Zombiesmile OS tan - Linux by Zombiesmile
Christmas gift for Fyorl, whom I owe a million drawings by now probably. Linux-tan is something I've attempted in September already, but sadly I didn't like the results then. (Making a human out of the Linux logo and penguin is really hard....) 
This time I am actually quite happy with the result. :3

Merry Christmas!

Ohh, I love the direction you took with this design! She's very elegant. :heart:
Being based off a penguin, one could've easily taken a more cutesy approach, this is pretty unexpected.

It doesn't help that a penguin is the mascot to begin with.  Good job though.

Wow, that is a fantastic linux-tan designe. Really, every piece of cloth and expression... I cant find the words (serious, that barrier called language is pretty hard to broken), it is really cool, cool like linux. And your art is amazing. =]

This looks pretty good. Is she suppose to represent just the kernel, or is she suppose to represent the many flavors of GNU/Linux?

This is really, really cute.  I love her hairpiece, and her gold slippers, and her long pearl-white hair.  She is very pretty, and has a cute little outfit.  ^_^

That's fantastic!
I myself use Linux alongside Windows, so this caught my attention in a way, but upon closer inspection, it's even better.

I'm actually not a big fan of the whole OS tan stuff, but this is way above the quality I usually get to see and you managed to characterize the OS quite well.
The mysterious vibe but familiar visuals of the famous penguin are instantly recognizable, especially because of the poses you've put her into. The book is a nice touch, after all, at times, Linux can require you to know your business and the diamond shapes and diamond-like icebergs are a nice touch.
It's definitely an instant-fave!

Merry Christmas! :D

thanks for the in-depth comment! originally she was going to wear glasses as well, but it didn't quite look right, so I scrapped the idea. maybe if I draw her in a different situation, I might add them back in. :) Happy Holidays!

Thank you too – and you're welcome! :)

Perhaps it was just the type of glasses you wanted to go for that made it look off? Tux has round/oval eyes, so I assume you wanted to reflect this in her eyewear and give her a round pair?
I can't quite imagine glasses with this particular setup and its poses, but should you decide to go for it some other time with a different pose, I'd be curious to see the outcome.
