The epic of Aegisub-tan

A while ago, jfs and I thought that it would be interesting to have a mascot for Aegisub, similar to the OS-tans from Futaba. She would be a chibi-style mascot, wearing light plate armor and holding a staff, and she would be seen in places like the splash screen, or in "loading" and "Aegisub crashed" dialogs, with different expressions to show her "mood" (e.g. crying when Aegisub crashes).

So we tried to contact several different artists, and many of them seemed to be quite interested in drawing at least a concept for her - but all of them eventually gave up. Is there any hope for an Aegisub-tan?

This is the description that I posted on the Wiki article (a little modified):

  • "Chibi" style, 2 to 3 heads tall.
  • Long white hair.
  • On her left hand, she holds Aegis, the program's name giver (this).
  • On her right hand, she holds a magic baton (Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha style) with a cog in it. This represents Automation.
  • Below her knee, on her chest, shoulders and hands, she wears red light armor plating, matching the shield. These should be simple, but curvy and shiny. Above all, they should look very light (as in, opposite of heavy).
  • Below her armor, she wears grey (black?) tights. They cover her body and legs, but not her arms or neck.
  • Also on her head, she wears a black/grey (same colour as underlying clothes?) beret.

(Keep in mind that the above description is NOT set on stone, and is just how I visualized her).

I even attempted to draw her myself. This is my pathetic attempt:


At this moment, many people lost hope in an Aegisub-tan. We even considered paying an artist to draw her, but nobody was really interested in donating money to the cause.

In conclusion: does anyone feel like drawing her? What we really need at first, I believe, is a high-resolution concept art, to go on splash, logo, t-shirts, etc. After that, we would need several small vectors of her doing many different things, but it'll be much easier to find artists to draw THOSE after we have a final concept drawn.

If you're interested, please leave a comment!

  27. College Republicans http://lyricslux.com/ at Central Michigan University were distributing gift idea bags to students on Wednesday when the card was discovered. The

    card, created by an recognized university student, featured an image of Adolf Hitler, alongside Valentine sentiments. http://lambingan.ph/ The combined group

    apologised, saying it didn't "condone this kind of rhetoric or anti-Semitism". "At tonight's [Thursday] College or university Republican meeting, we'd a ROMANTIC DAYS

    CELEBRATION party, http://tambayanshow.net/ where each member http://tambayanshow.com/ furnished a handbag and other associates positioned http://streammint.net/

    valentines within others' bags. Alas, a very unacceptable card was put into a tote without other participants' knowledge."CMU Leader Dr George Ross granted a statement

    expressing the college or university was "deeply disappointed". "This isn't who we could as a campus community," Dr Ross composed. "Such hurtful, offensive dialect,

    while shielded by the First Amendment [of the united states constitution], is unacceptable and is not regular with our standards and values." He said a gathering had

    been performed to handle the incident including reps from the Variety Office and the CMU Law enforcement Department. CMU students placed a rally against hate talk on

    Thursday night, which some Republican students went to. It had been reportedly agreed upon "XOXO, Courtney". "While still not appropriate, I wish to get rid of that

    they didn't create it themselves," Ms Flynn said. The http://zindagikimehek.net/ campus group for Jewish students, Hillel, had written on Facebook that it was "deeply

    worried and disappointed". It promised to utilize the college or university "to ensure all Jewish students feel safe and pleasant on campus, and this incidents such as

    this do not happen again". Six million Jews were murdered by the Nazis in Hitler's loss of life camps during World Warfare Two. Not individuals were won circular by

    Donald Trump when he became the Republican presidential nominee this past year - even participants of his own get together had their questions. We spoke to several

    Republican ladies in New Hampshire who had been among those in the beginning sceptical of the existing president, but who've acquired a change of heart and soul since.
