Needs more cool tans edition
Guys, there is a lack of /c/-tan references. I think this is the official outfit.
I liked this request
Nigga that's fucking EXCELLENT
But getting onto your reference thing, the one you drew is her Winter Ball outfit for /pol/. Pic related is a good example of her normal outfit. The dress is pink.
Not that I'm complaining, you did good.
[s4s] and /int/ are already mailing their Christmas cards.
they in luuuv or something.
Some boards like to have their tans getting dressed up for the ball, [s4s] and /int/ for instance. /pol/ decided to dress /c/ up in a costume which references some northern European party (I think it's in Norway, I'll look it up).
Why not add [s4s]'s Winter Ball outfit in the mix and we could have four different pictures? So all clothes swaps are taken into account? Pic related if necessary.
If you're not up for that, I'd say change the colors for /c/ and call it a day.
So, /aco/'s board-tan is still a sore topic for them.
It looks like /trash/-tan is that opossum, though I know very little about her since I haven't dug through the trash yet.
What about /his/-tan? I've seen some kind of marble statue looking guy and also a ghost girl as possible designs.
And has /news/ done anything for a board-tan yet? I really hope it isn't just /pol/-tan in another suit because /pol/-tan is just /new/-tan in a different suit. Now we have both /pol/ and /news/ at the same time, so they can't be the same person.
>The ghost girl were a couple guys shitposting
Dunno about all that. I drew the ghost ones and just posted them the one time. Some other anon had drawn a ghost and a couple people seemed to like the idea so I drew a few more versions of it.
Not everything posted on 4chan is intended to stir shit up, friend. Even in those threads I was suggesting people stick to the single old man.
>So, /aco/'s board-tan is still a sore topic for them.
Because they have too many idea men. It could have been as simple as a girl in short shorts and a tee shirt but no, she has to be a superhero because /co/ made the board or she has to be cowboy/indian because "western" or a wizard creating dicks and pussies in a cauldron because we are /aco/lytes or a blob because we are too arrogant to make up our minds and choose a design.
They might as well let you make a design and stick with that.
Keksandra is adorable. She is the quintsessential cutie-pie.
I know your board is literally trash, but you could at least not be human garbage and follow the fucking global rules.
>You will not post any of the following outside of /b/: Trolls, flames, racism, off-topic replies, uncalled for catchphrases, macro image replies, indecipherable text (example: "lol u tk him 2da bar|?"), anthropomorphic ("furry") or grotesque ("guro") images, post number GETs ("dubs"), or loli/shota pornography.
Everyone who disagrees with you on 4chan is the same person, don't you know that?
I posted this on /co/ and it was based on on of the earlier versions of that chart. I didn't add /news/ because I don't think they will get a tan
Here's a better one for [s4s]. It looks cuter.
There are a few here that I'm unsure about.
/fit/ I usually see drawn as he is in this comic
/r9k is actually one of the most incosistently drawn /tans/ I can think of
sometimes he's drawn as a literal robot
Sometimes he's drawn as a person with a top hat.
And other times he's drawn as a robot with a top hat.
Pardon my not finding a better picture of him in a top hat, there was a comic posted some time ago where he died and was heralded as an amazing person which showed him better, but I'm having trouble finding it again.
I updated this, using what I found more appropriate, of course. Some board-tans are still unknown for me.
Nope. I would rather leave it blank until /aco/ can stop bitching about it.
Kek, so never?
You know /aco/ is a mess because its just a combination of other "No so weeabo" boards (/co/, /tg/, somehow /v/, etc) and /d/ fags that got expelled from their native land for some retard mod or something, so naturally we don't get along so well. There is not gonna be a real board culture in a while.
No, every tan thread made on the board devolves into arguments and idiotic fighting between factions. The board doesn't even have a cohesive identity, it is pretty safe to ignore it for the next few months.
They've already dished out over 200 pics of many different designs.
J/aco/lyn, /aco/rn, Madame Pe/aco/k, and the /aco/ wizard are the ones who have been drawn the most.
I like J/aco/lyn the best, but saying anything positive about any of the designs on /aco/ triggers at least one asshole and ruins the whole thread.
I like j/aco/lyn altogether, because it has a great uniqueness to it that other tans don't have and she's pretty fucking hot.
I just don't like the idea of a flat out wizard. That's more a /tg/ thing.
Update /c/, pretty sure there is a better /k/ on the shimmie, /o/ changed their tan a while ago, not sure if /r/ is official (i could be wrong), /u/ has a "true tan" or some shit that aren't the twins (apparently they are illusions created by the "real /u/" or some shit like that), /r9k/ didn't blessed their tan yet but they seem to agree on the robot design over the emo looking kid, /adv/ is advice dog (i could be wrong though), pretty sure there is a better /an/ on the shimmie, update /fa/, he has a lot of OC that has been done this year, update /int/, update /mlp/, update /out/ (shit happened this year), /po/ changed their tan already
Those are the changes i recommend
The real problem is that they didn't created tans, but OCs, i dunno, personally i like to picture /aco/ as this western town populated by different characters, and they all together form "/aco/" in a similar fashion to /vp/ or /sp/
>/u/ has a "true tan" or some shit that aren't the twins
The twins are the tan. The other thing is just a creation, I suppose like Vivian James or /co/lette? I don't really know enough about /v/ or /co/ to know for certain, but the twins are the official tan.
No, or at least officially it's the twins. The red-head is just something that gets drawn when drawfags are lazy or the situation calls for a single character, like in reaction images. But there's never been any discussion about the change, just drawfags drawing her.
Dunno, you'd have to ask /v/, I don't really understand that whole situation or who /co/lette is either.
tans are representations of pure board culture, even if their appearances don't really remind you the average user, their personalities summon up everything about the board, a literal meme character who doesn't play vidya, is hypocritical, sexually confused and always angry fits /v/ better than Vivian
Because angryface dude is more related to /v/ users and he have an actual history in the internet.
I went to /u/, I went to their drawthreads, I went into the board-tan thread on /u/, they didn't come from there.
I went into the /u/ archives and ran an image hash search and those pics show up here on /qa/ before they were posted on /u/, which only one of the two has been and was only after it was posted to this thread.
>/aco/ could not stop fighting over who is the real /aco/-tan and ended up with 400 versions
>/his/-tan discussion died after a week
>/news/ is doomed to not have a -tan due to it being a textboard
>only /trash/ successfully makes a -tan, but she makes people butthurt
>/aco/ could not stop fighting over who is the real /aco/-tan and ended up with 400 versions
Its filled with autists from /co/, don't get me wrong, /co/ is really damn creative when it comes to OCs, but they are dangerously autistic
>only /trash/ successfully makes a -tan, but she makes people butthurt
/trash/-tan is fucking perfect, she fits the board like a glove and has a design that makes her stand out from all the generic moeshit and semen demons
i am going to update this, what boards participated in this year's ball? And by participating i mean really participating, with threads and OC being made and shit, i want to know this so i can know what images to update
If you think /trash/ tan is everyone but bold and brash then mcfuckingkillyourself.
I finally did it, updated some of the tans and changed some other stuff, thoughts?
Not from either board and didn't watch their threads very carefully past the first couple. I'd imagine it was just based on a joke made in one of the winter ball threads though, probably something about her wearing /fa/ as a coord.
Neo/co/ and /co/mblr anon, learn the difference.
Also most of /co/ hates /aco/ because half of /co/ related waifus are forbidden stuff like furries and lolis.
So yeah /aco/ is a big mistake and we blame the weeabos mods.
>Also most of /co/ hates /aco/ because half of /co/ related waifus are forbidden stuff like furries and lolis.
Most of /co/ don't care enough to hate it. The cartoon fags are too busy circlejerking in their generals and the comic are too busy whining about the newest change in Marvel/DC media.
Only ones complaining are the waifufags in general that just make image dump threads of their waifu and fill drawthreads with lewd/porn request for them. And even then many have stop bitching since /trash/ existed.
I was thinking, there are some dead boards who already have their own tans, would be that much of a big deal to make a few more squares separated from the others just for them? Boards like /q/, /z/, /l/, /fur/ and old /g/ already have tans even as dead boards and people seem to like them
Whatever them, people can use the other one if they don't like it anyway
Besides the "he does it for free" there is also Meido
There's this from the guy who draws the She Does It For Free comic
/wsr/ isn't even a day old and there's already porn of it.
Is this a blessing or a curse?
>board isn't even a day old
>Already this much Board-tan content
Board tans were a mistake, also update when?
Missile, Ground-attack, Tube-launched, Optically-tracked, Wire-guided
Don't know where you got that /k/ image, but it doesn't feel right for /k/ not to be a Willis piece.
There's really no official outfit for /int/-tan other than the Iron Cross hair decoration. Out of the ones from the shimmie, I'd say the dress with Polandballs on it and white boots is your best bet.
I am not from /k/ and i was just looking for a newer/better quality image, but if what you say its true them i guess its better to leave it like this
>/tg/ is an shonen shota.
>/toy/ is a girl with baseball cap and long brown hair.
That /tg/ wasn't me, pretty sure that is a pokemon trainer alt design made by /vp/, can't speak for /toy/
>/o/ is an old guy.
That was from this year's ball, when /v/ asked /o/ out, they seem to not have enjoyed the anime girl design and went with something else for that occasion
>/fa/ isn't a queer.
/fa/ has a lot of new art but i couldn't find anything that would fit the portrait very well, all of his art is either low quality or very stylized
We should make a relationship chart for the board-tans.
/co/ - /ck/: Married
[s4s] - /int/: Married
/k/ - /an/: Married
/i/ - /ic/: Siblings
/mlp/ - /co/: Siblings
/sp/ - /asp/: Siblings
/cm/ - /y/: Probably siblings
/w/ - /wg/: Probably siblings
/r/ - /wsr/: Probably siblings
/gif/ - /wsg/: Probably siblings
/v/ - /vg/ - /vp/ - /vr/: Siblings
/a/ - /v/: Parents of /jp/ (?)
/b/-tan hasn't had a solid, accepted design, but people usually use the green Anonymous guy.
I like this rendition of him though.
No. The green anon represents all the 4chan anons. I don't want to be part of /b/. The Guy Fawkes mask and the "knowledge" about Internet memes are the best options for this character.
/b/ gets anon because it was the first board, and in the same way /b/ represents the website as a whole outside, Anon can both represent the board and 4chan as a whole depending of the context
i think the green guy became standard cuz the EFG mask got associated with too many ppl who had goofy agendas.
i didn't post at all between 2008 and 2013 and green guy as well as words like "shitposting" and "greentexting" (and many other common things) were totally new to me when i came back.
4chan's changed a lot over the years.
hey guys, i haven't been in a -tan thread in forever because i got bored of waiting for the ball, which seemed like it was never gonna happen.
how did it go? how did my OTP make out? how much autism was there in the ball in total?
I was just talking about the portrait, since he got so much OC it wouldn't hurt to bother with updating the image with something from this year, specially if it something more high quality
i think that the portrait is fine as is. that pose and expression tells you a lot about /fa/-tan before you read any comic with him in it.
/pol/jp/c/ was going perfectly well. The autist that was Malaysia just had to go around and fuck everything up.
In one of the /pol/ draw threads, he replied to the same post five times criticizing a drawing.
And here is the updated alt with /z/ and the other dead boards
A few other boards include:
/dis/ - Discussion
/sug/ - Suggestions
/ib/ - Oekaki Random
/ip/ - Oekaki Pro (these two merged to become /i/ sometime in mid 2006)
/tl/ - Torrents/Loli (existed on February 20, 2005, removed by September 24, 2005)
/sm/ - Shota/Male
I'm trying to pinpoint when the /i/ predecessors merged. According to a dA post, /ip/ existed on February 22, 2006, and merged by September 29 the same year.
/fur/ is supposed a furry hunter
Backstory created by some autist on /qa/ i like - He is some bigfoot alike legendary creature that was created years ago by moot but disappeared, originally he was just some unlucky bastard wearing a shitty fursuit moot created to bait furries into a single location, the poor guy had to spend his life running away from horny furries who wanted his ass, when the location got nuked, he became homeless and started wandering everywhere, as the years went by he grew stronger and learned how to build traps to trap furries and eat them, at this point he already lost all his sanity and became some untamed beast, who still wanders through all over 4chan, spreading his traps everywhere to get his revenge against the furries
There is also this other story about /k/, /an/ and the kids going for a camp trip in a forest, where during the night, the kids meet /fur/ leading to them getting lost in the woods, a bunch of predator like pursuits and horror, shit's pretty fucked
Its better to not add them, way too many empty spots, and those boards don't stand out too much since they are just alts of other boards, so creating tans of them would be a waste of time
Also I won't be drawing much next year. lol I have to get a second job. My drawings are labeled nostrodenom on the shimmie, but I'm hoping to move a few board tans to bigger things if I'm not dead by then.
>There is also this other story about /k/, /an/ and the kids going for a camp trip in a forest, where during the night, the kids meet /fur/ leading to them getting lost in the woods, a bunch of predator like pursuits and horror, shit's pretty fucked
Got a link to it? I'd like to read
So I want to write up a story board for a comic where the child tans (except /out/ and /wsr/) go into a forest during sunset. Kind of like after they went to that haunted house and /new/man had to rescue them, but they clearly haven't learned.
/b/ looks like alot of things in the shimmie. The human version of him seems to be this guy >>389296 (the unmasked version is on 4chanhouse's /char/ board) but his origin is the original green anon. Seeing that he is the random board, it's not hard to imagine that he is a shapeshifter.
Also /s4s/ has an antenna under her hat. She was originally a joke board based off SRS from reddit.
That's something he made up. The joke is supposed to be that [s4s]'s has the Reddit alien antenna and uses the hat to hide it.
Clearly it's a headcanon since all her hatless pictures have no antenna.
Headcanon. I just thought about it and it made more sense to me. If /fur/ is a human in a fursuit due to backstory rather than being a furry, then /s4s/ is half reddit due to her backstory.
And canonically, black suit /pol/ tan is the /new/ news board redirect. He wasn't originally made on /pol/, which was one of the reasons there was an identity issue with /pol/'s board tan during the 2014 Winterball. Well the redirect disappeared earlier this year (possibly after the /pol/ harbor), but he keeps being drawn despite being the news anons' board tan. There was a fair bit of support for green suit. I don't hate him, he's more representative of current /pol/. Black suit represented the news anons.
Out of all the boards with two tans, /pol/ was concretely justified in having two tans. They literally had two userbases mixed together.
>Clearly it's a headcanon since all her hatless pictures have no antenna.
It makes things alot more interesting. Out of respect for the original artists and people on /s4s/, I didn't draw antenna /s4s/, but I always find it sort of weird that the majority of the /s4s/ artists choose to debase /pol/'s black suit board tan rather than work with the /pol/ userbase. There's usually a mix of people upset with black suit being anything less than serious.
kek. My interpretation leans toward somber/serious since it was my homeboard that got deleted. When the arab spring happened, I think the only place to talk about it was either /int/ or /k/, but most of the news users got banned because we started talking about politics on a weapons board. Then people started getting banned on /int/ for talking about politics even though both boards crossed over all the time. Back then it was literally censorship, but only because I think moot wanted 4chan to become more fun but the news anons were very dramatic and trollish people.
(I think there were some news fags on /v/, but I'm not sure.)
There is no lobotimized news, in my opinion. Since I was browsing both /new/ from 4.c h0. n and /pol/, I just took meta info from user posts and used it as a storyboard. According to 4chanhouse, the original /new/ artist was going to retire the news board tan but someone pointed out the redirect, which was why he drew /new/ tan as /pol/ tan. Around the same time, we also had other anons drawing new /pol/ tans (green suit being one), but the /new/ users wanted to keep black suit. What I'm thinking is /new/ tan hijacked the /pol/ board and hid its board tan away until the /pol/ harbor, when moot invited all the boards to crash /pol/'s place. Haven't decided what happens afterwards.
More headcanon: other boards used to think /i/ was a mean board due to rumors that she was an invasion board. Also /x/ and /p/ used to hang out before /x/ became a paranormal board. /b/ canonically hates all the boards.
I just enjoy drawing various depictions. Although I thought /pol/ would be /new/'s kid but that didn't happen with the userbase.
He was also a female during the /pol/ harbor when he turned into a kid. I just put her in an ambiguous jacket with people assuming she was shota. It was why she wanted to get back into her original body in my drawings. She's currently dead now since she was still considered the /new/ redirect after the /pol/ harbor.
The winter balls I never took seriously. The /pol/ users keep bringing back the news tan even though it originally was based on the redirect. /pol/ can pretty much create their own tan at this point.
DON'T CUM INSIDE ME ANON, IT'S NOT A SAFE DAY! *SPLUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUURGE*
wtf did you just facking say to me, you lil berch, ill have you know im in the army marine core, 10000 confirm krills, you're nothing more to me than a pile of lard, ill gank you in one hundred ways, you're done kiddo, gg
old man + loli is still best.
though we can never agree with the details
>not inmortal king of /z/ Soviet_Russia
I'm your conscience, lord high keeper of the knowledge of right and wrong, counselor in moments of high temptation, and guide along the straight and narrow path
>old man + loli is still best.
There are boards where it makes sense, like /vp/, because the pokemon games give you the choice between male and female avatars, or /sp/ which arose, as I understand it, from the dual nature of "football", a major board subject matter.
A board like /cgl/ or /co/ could probably get away with two tans, because of the significant devide between two subject matters in the same board (cape shit vs cartoons; lolita vs cosplay). But /his/ has no reason for such a divide, the flimsy line of reasoning for the old man and loli is that one is "ancient" history and one is "recent" history, but those two aren't divided or vastly different subject matters.
It's like /a/ wanting two tans because old and recent anime are "different", there's no real split, they both easily fall under a single category.
/aco/ is cant get your shit together, the board. Probably don't want to follow their lead, since their tan design has been a clusterfuck from day 1.
there is a big difference between ancient and recent history though, both in facts and the kind of people who are into them, at least with /his/ it makes sense considering how divided the community can get
As for /aco/, the board is filled with autistic idea guys from /co/, when it comes to making OC they can produce a lot but its hard to find a consensus when everybody wants their shitty waifu to be the focus
I thought that /his/ also wanted the loli to be like
some kind of student of the old guy like she would say something like "Hello everyone, did you know that in 1987 the south won the the revolutionary war?" and then the old man would correct her.
I get that, but that argument could be made about anything.
There's a big difference between old cars and the latest sports car, but that doesn't mean /o/ needs two tans. The same is true of the various types of food on /ck/, etc. "But there are different kinds of x subject" is not a very good reason for multiple character tans. There are a lot of boards with far bigger divides in subject matter (/co/, /cgl/, /v/, /x/) that work fine with a single tan.
Here are the two images, one is the one i am asking for and the other is for reference
Something like this?
It's sad the lack of images of some board-tans.
and here is a small update with a colorful /hr/, i also replaced /p/ since that artist's tans look fucking awful, but this design is also still just a placeholder until /p/ decides what they want
Can't believe no one posted a screenshot of this yet.
>"Sir, can you spare me some money?" the little girl asks kindly, holding out her empty hat to the men.
>He scoffs rudely. "Who cares about memes, dumb bitch?" he laughs in her face, slapping the hat out of her hand.

>"It's okay. You don't have to give me any money," she says, nodding slowly. She watches the men walking away.

>She felt so hungry. The last thing she remembers eating was a half-eaten burrito thrown at her by a man a few days earlier.
>Her stomach growls loudly as she thinks. She lifts a weak arm up to her stomach and rubs it, ignoring the pain in her shoulder.
>"Tomorrow," she says to herself. "Tomorrow."
>She touches her black eye carefully. It still hurts. She remembered the man who hit her because she got desperate and followed him, asking for just one penny. It was nearly swollen shut.

>"It's Yuu," the woman politely responds.
Hey /aco/lytes, some guy on /co/ suggested this, what do you think?
>Yuu takes the girl to her apartment.
>The first thing she does is offer Keksandra any food she wants.
>Keksandra eats two sandwiches, some ice cream and a packet of chips
>After the meal, the woman gently leads her to her bedroom and tucks Keksandra into her bed.
>She instantly falls asleep within the soft, warm covers.
>Keksandra wakes up hours later, feeling well-rested and a little stronger

>Yuu tends to any cuts and bruises she has, and then gives her a warm bath to clean the dirt off of her
>Since Keksandra has only one pair of clothes, Yuu gives her some clothes to keep for herself (surprisingly, they fit relatively well)

I swear I saw a comic on the shimmie where /pol/ was left to babysit the child tans and ended up dumping them in a donation bin, then waking up on Christmas day and finding presents which had the children in them. But now it's gone. Was I dreaming shit?
