Ubunchu RtL Instructional Page by C-quel Ubunchu RtL Instructional Page by C-quel
This is a custom-made Right-to-Left Instructional Insert for Ubunchu, an Ubuntu-based manga by Hiroshi Seo and recently translated into English by Doctormo, Fumihito Yoshida, and Hajime Mizuno.

While featuring a sample page of the original Ubunchu manga, the overall design of the insert is based on the Ubuntu login screen, and features "Risa-tan", a chibified version of Risa (the "Mac Girl" from Ubunchu). Risa-tanis soft-shaded to blend better with the insert design.

The insert is meant to be included in the "RtL" (="Right to Left") version of Ubunchu, a special reedit of the translated manga that I'm in the process of working on. Additional details will be posted later.

Awesome work with the shading + highlighting, this is spec-tac-u-lar! I couldn't pick out a favorite portion if I had to-- everything, from Risa's hair to hat to apple hair clip and clothes is perfect (and you said fold work wasn't a strong suit... hah!)

And I find my attention being drawn to the small stuff as well-- even her shoes, socks and tie are wonderfully drawn! Her eyes are somewhat simple compared to what you normally draw, but they have a sort of cuteness in their simplicity.

Fufufu... maybe I was possessed by the Spirit of Bella when I made the folds? ^___^

Nah, but I did rely heavily on the Ubunchu cover to figure out how to work the folds. Can't take 100% credit for them -- on the other hand, the angle was different so had to reimagine the folds. Maybe can claim 50% of the credit. ^.^

The cap I was surprised came out surprisingly well, since I only spent not but five minutes on it. [I was desperate to finish and go to bed, so I just slapped together some random reflections that somehow, in the end, formed a cohesive metallic surface,... weird... O__o ).

And the eyes are style-matched from Risa-chan's original.... btw, you HAVE checked out Ubunchu, have you not? ^____________^

I did post it over in the forum a few days ago.... ^___________________________^

*staaaaaaaaaaaares at Bella* TvT

...

In any event, too tired now [need much sleep, so I'll wait till tomorrow to update my Journal and reply to all the stuff that's been accumulating in my DA inbox.... ^^;

*flops on keyboard*

*snorez* -.-

I have been reading Ubunchu... I haven't gotten that far, but I'm reading it. ^^

And that cap came out amazingly for five minute's work. Nice job!

Fufufu... yosh yosh. ^^
My RtL version is ready too in case you want to check it out. ^___^

And yeah, that cap, just like Puma-Chan Beam or the Amiga-C64 Portraiture, is what I call an Epic Sleep-Deprived Miracle.

It was not supposed to happen, but it happened somehow. ^-^;

...

*ponders*

...

I gotta start sleeping less.... -v-;

Hoho, since I started painting I've learned one big rule: don't ink or paint while tired. JUST DON'T. But I guess digital art is more forgiving to sleep-deprived mistakes (or triumphs). ^^;

YAY! The Doc praised the pig! I be happy. ^___^

I said i was going to take the day off today, but after seeing all the praise here and elsewhere now I' psyched to keep moving on! ^v^

...

But doesn't hide the fact that I'm sleep-deprived to high-heaven, so all I can afford to offer today is the RtL'd Page 3:

[link]

I read somewhere that you're hoping I might offer new translations -- while I'm hardly capable in terms of language translation, the literal script file you gave me earlier, plus a "what the hell, let's have fun" kind of spirit, let me try my hand at some rewrites.

Nothing major, but I hope you like.

Updated the Sauce file with Page 3... ^^

Hopefully tomorrow I'll have the energy to tackle 2 or 3. ^___^

Oh I wasn't thinking rewrites, I just thought you'd have ideas for making it more palatable and probably better English.

Glad your psyched, but you deserve the praise, it's a very good image :-)

Aaah.... uh... well.....

Eep, this is awkward. ^^'

Uh... in that case,... uh,...

Aw heck, it'll be fine. ^__^
This is Inkscape, after all, we could revert the dialog back in less time then it takes us to sneeze. ^.^

For now, feel free to consider my current dialog in the SVG as my ideas put through the test. ^^;

And thank you very much! Thank you too for all the recent faves. ^-^

Glad I can finally give back directly to a Linux-based project -- it's been over a year since I've done so [with, regrettably, not the best results]. -__-

Well there are plenty of opportunities to contribute to the FOSS community in terms of art, creative talent and a new perspective on ideas.

I've just pushed Revision 5 of the ftp and sources which include some of you new dialogue for the LtR readers. I've also updated some other text I felt could do with more smooth reading.
