Linux-tan - Lineart by juzo-kun Linux-tan - Lineart by juzo-kun
EDIT: About the Fedora character: I'm aware of Fedora developers' request of not putting any fedora hat in artworks inspired by the operating system... but I began to sketch and draw the character before that request was done.

When I read about Fedora's logo and image redesign I made myself a note to change the character as soon as possible. Sadly, my "as soon as possible" sometimes becomes "woops, I completely forgot to do that", so the design still needs an upgrade. I apologize...

EDIT2: (after, like, eight years? Oh, my!) Now Mandriva too! And I'm unsure about others... still have to check!

-----------

Lineart version of this scrap.
The coloring method is a placeholder, for now I don't have the spare time to make a full coloring ;_;

Who is who? Explained here.

Good work, but it's Gnu/Linux, not "just linux"

you're very welcome :D

i just got Ubuntu 13.04 literally two days ago, and i love the layout so far. the only problem is that i need to get a wireless adapter for my desktop that's Linux compatible (I found one on ThinkPenguin.Com for 64 dollars that I'm hoping to buy once i get enough money saved up). And I can't wait to get Linux Mint 14 on my laptop when i get it back (though i need a new hard drive since my friend, who got me started on Linux this Sunday and ironically friend the hard drive in my laptop). sorry for the long explanation, I have a have a BAD habit of doing that ^^;

Love it, the only one I couldn't pin down was Vector, I wonder how many people actually missed Red Hat. She was the first one I got, then Ubuntu and Debian (the rest I had to look up.)

That's some clever stuff you've done. Very cute... very true to each OS's schemes.

I particularly like the Fedora distro's OS-tan.

It's funny, since I was just on their site, and they say very explicitly: If you're going to give us artwork for our systems, it must not contain any hats... especially fedoras.

Or something like that. I like it very much.

Thank you for the comment :)

I know about that request... I began to sketch the Fedora character before :D

Thanks you for reminding me, I'll edit the description and remember to upgrade about the character design.

Heh, I have to say that Slackware-tan is my fav. Then again, I might be biased, seeing as I run Slackware. ^_^ Almost looks like she's the long-lost sister to Cid from Final Fantasy 7 though. *LOL*

Crappy comment... Well, Gentoo is the only one that is moving somewhere at some speed, indeed... I like this... :D And Debian's the sexyest! (does this "sexyest" word exists?) I like her!!!

I really like the style, and the realization, both with colors and design... This is a very good work... And for this you deserve +fav... :P
Give us more OS-tan, please!

Great work! :clap:
