Linspire-tan Wallpaper by transfuse Linspire-tan Wallpaper by transfuse
I was planning on drawing one of the OS Girls for a while now so I figured I might as well draw one and submit it to the Linspire contest. I was a little surprised to find that there weren't many drawings of this cute gal. The only good one I could find was a tiny little mug-shot over at

If you're not familiar with the OS Girls (OS-tan), you can read all about this cool little phenomenon in this Wikipedia article:

OS Girls Article

There's a small snippet at the bottom about Linspire-tan. You can also find more OS Girl pics (and a few crappy Lin-tan pics) here:

OS-tan pics

The OS Girls are usually drawn in a cutesy way, but I thought it'd be neat to draw one in a more grown-up, sexy manner. I changed her outfit significantly because the original one was absurdly boring and uninspiring. Guess you could say the new outfit's more "Linspiring", gya ha!

*dodges tomatoes"

Anyhow, comments and critiques are always welcome. ^_^

Oh, and you can check out a full-body version of this pic here:

[edit] I made the top of her head a little smaller 'cause it looked really big in the previous version. Also, should there be any copyright issues (and I'm pretty sure there aren't since noone is credited to creating the OS Girls) this is just a picture of a Linspire-tan cosplayer. :3

I don't know a single person who uses Linspire. But it was fun drawing Linspire-tan. :)

Yes I can imagine the excitement of portraying an object such as an OS, as a beautiful women. Two things that intrigue smart guys. Perhaps everyone should have an OS tan as a mascott for their own collection of ideas and views. For example i list life tutorials at my website, but i lack a mascott. os-tans give a human (and in this case beautiful) image on tools such as..well an OS. hmmm. i need to make my own os tan. to an extent, i've asked artists to draw my 'fantasy' woman. so i guess i could run with that. anywho... good job and keep it up :p
