Now Os-tan character: Windows 8

Wow, Windows 8, huh?
They’re coming out with that, and they aren’t fixing the numbering?
I don’t speak Japanese, but I can mix some Spanish into a name, possibly.
Ochen-tan.

I think Windows makes a new OS every 3 years, regardless of whether they need it or not.

Let’s call her Hachi-tan (hachi = eight).

I’ve just looked-up for 7-tan and her name is Nanami Nadobe (nana is seven and madobe is prolly a pun on Adobe), so well call her Hachini Hawa (hachini to make a somewhat realistic name and hawa for Java, also to make the first letters match like previously). If you want the Kanji for it:
八二 ハワ (Hachi-ni Ha-wa)

Sooooooo….. Any comments? I think I’ll move the thread to W7 Forums, though they might already have one (I can take the risk).

Sorry, but I’m no artist. I can BARELY draw anything. If anything, she probably looks similar to Nanami (W8 being based on 7) but in lighter colors, with some darker colors (from what I’ve seen on the official sites). She might also have smaller breasts with the fact that the OS-tan’s size being related to the actual size of the OS. So, in short, Hachini would probably be like Nanami’s sister, but smaller.

Dam! Looks like I was wrong on one little point. I wrote Nadobe the first time and Madobe the second time, and it’s the second one that’s right. Also, it seems that the character was named after the voice actor, Nana Mizuki (how convenient), though I still think Madobe is a pun on Adobe. We’ll still keep the name because I think it’s a good one.

Hey anyone, I need a fan art painter?

Well, you’re lucky. Turns out my sister is pretty good at drawing anime style characters so I asked her to draw something and she’s going to do it. I’ll put the drawing through Paint Shop Pro once she’s done and I should have something tonight or tomorrow. Good for you?

Well, well… I’m going to tell you an interesting story. After an ultimate attemt at drawing, I just told myself: “Isn’t there something else I can do?” Lo and behold, I found salvation: instead of a drawing, lets make a 3D model instead. Yep, a 3D model. Now I just have to find a way to post them pics…

Ok, the pics are posted. Can you put them in the thread? So that, at least, all can see them?

“So this is windows 8-tan? You use mmd and make that character using pmd right? Good job =w=b”
MMD? PMD? Huh? I don’t really know what you’re talking about (I assume they’re 3D animators). I actualy did this with 3D Custom Girl, no sh!t. If you don’t know, it’s a p0rn game where you make the girl you want (choose her hair, her clothes, her eyes, her size) and then you “do” her. No kidding. Just don’t ask why I have this but, yes, I used it for something other than what it was, that is, make W8-tan.

八二 (Hachini) is her first name. ハワ (Hawa) is her last name and according to Denshi Jisho, it writes the same way in both Kanji and Katakana.

Nope. ハワ is Katakana and Katakana only. There is no Kanji that looks and sounds like ワ.
