fufu, thank you. ^___^

Actually, Ubunchu and OS-tans are two different things, but you could say they are similar (especially since the Ubunchu girl's seifuku looks so much like the Ubuntu colors).

And I'd love for Hayashinomura-san's drawings to appear in a magazine (maybe they do and she's not tell us, lol ^.^ ), but the reason she put all that magazine information up is because the original Ubunchu manga was published in a magazine in Japan.

The author worked hard to open it so that it can be distributed throughout the world freely, just like Hayashinomura-san did for her drawing.

Have you read Ubunchu yet? If you haven't, are you interested? ^____^

fufufu! I don't know how to review this without sounding biased! >v<

But that's okay -- I'm of the belief that sometimes, when things are so great and pure and wonderful, you have little choice BUT to be biased. When things deserve unconditional support, you can't help but be biased. It's only natural. ^-^

That's how I feel about this drawing,... Try as I might, I cannot find a flaw in this drawing. >v<

Perhaps its because they say "love blinds", and its true I LOVE this work! ^v^

You always draw beautiful things, but here its a combination of:

a theme I like very much (Ubuntu/Ubunchu)

+

one of my favorite manga characters of all time (Akane-san)

+

the use of warm vibrant colors (the likes of which I haven't seen in your DA or MT gallery for a while)

+

The cameo of the famous EeePC netbook, which was my very first netbook (I still have it!) and brings me fond memories! ^.^

+

a very thoughtful and creative background that shows to me you did a lot of research and reading into the subject.

And I guess it boils down to that. ^-^

Artwork is a given, I had NO doubt at all you would draw a masterpiece as you always seem to draw great things. Like I said before, colors are warm and vibrant but toned down enough to make them relaxing at the same time. Strokes are heavy but elegant and the shading is top notch, spartan but effective and positioned perfectly based on the lighting. But despite the excellent recreation of Seotch's character design, this Akane still has your distinct and unique style of full, stranded hair, pretty eyes, luscious lips, and an excellent understanding of anatomy that could only come after years of drawing (especially with the hands, which are perfect!) ^__^

So artwork is a given that it was going to be great! What really astonished me about this drawing (aside from the speed) was the clear and very evident care you poured into it. I only gave you a small description of the prerequisites, links to other commissions as examples, and copies of Ubunchu (in both English and Bahasa), and yet that was all you needed. From that vague request, you were able to draw EXACTLY what I was looking for, you were willing to read the manga left and right and immerse yourself in other aspects of Ubuntu and FOSS software. And you presented all that knowledge masterfully in the background, which if anyone cares to look it over carefully, has not only many references to Ubunchu, Ubuntu, Linux and the community in general, but you also took the time to translate parts of the Ubuntu promise in Bahasa Indonesia. And as if this weren't incredible enough, you never once winced at the prospect of sharing your source files or using the CC-BY-SA license -- on the contrary, you EMBRACED the thought and saw the fun and excitement of it. ^___^

You're the shining example of the kind of thoughtful and compassionate people who have helped make our community prosper. I won't be just happy, I'd be PRIVILEGED to have you lend us your skills and talents for future works! ^___^

In the meantime, I have your Akane-sama in my cycling wallpaper now.... ^____~

And I guess I'll end now with "kerja bagus" and of course "terima kasih banyak"! ^-^

Oh, and if anyone else is curious, here is the translation for the text on the right side:

"bahwa perangkat lunak harus tersedia dengan bebas biaya"

"that software should be available free of charge"

"bahwa aplikasi perangkat lunak tersebut harus dapat digunakan dalam bahasa lokal masing-masing dan untuk orang-orang yang mempunyai keterbatasan fisik"

"that the application software must be used in the local language of each and for the people who have physical limitations"

hehe, I like crabs! ^___^

[but not to eat,... I used to have some pet crabs when I was younger]

I'm happy I'm able to motivate you, that means I'm doing my job. ^^
I think I'm a great artist, not because I draw well (honestly, I don't really), but rather because I try to help other artists be the best they can be. A community of artists that share their talents and help one another can be a powerful force. ^___~

Glad you like my screenshot, btw. ^.^
Not sure if it's clear in it, but I use Kubuntu (a slightly stronger version of Ubuntu in my opinion). ^.~

How did you decide on the dimensions of the piece? I would have thought 1024 x 768 would be a choice.

C-quel Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2009  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
It's much easier (and of better quality) to downsample large pictures into smaller ones (e.g., 1024x768) than to upscale smaller into larger rsolutions (which will just look pixelated).

If anything, the current dimensions could almost be considered a little small, but I'm confident it satisfies the need of at least 90% of all users (at least for a few more years). ^.^
