One of the Aros distributions (Broadway) made me think of a cartoon character as mascot, you all know Linux got the penquin and so on….this was just me doing a test. It’s really not the mascot of Broadway currently. 🙂
The Amiga-like operating system AROS keeps on enhancing much because of talented developer Deadwood that has ported Mesa/Gallium 3D subsystem to AROS. The excellent open source game and first person shooter, CUBE2 is now ported by him too. So if you are a gamer and want to try out AROS…now’s the time. 🙂
Eric Schwartz the famous Amiga animator once made a mascot for the open source operating system AROS. His drawings has amazed me ever sine I saw them years ago on my Amiga 500. Many have asked me to draw one picture of his creation but I never really dared to try because as an artist myself I have huge respect for his (others) work. I finally gave in and here’s a sketch of mine interpretation of the AROS kitty. I don’t know if I will finish this one but I gave it a go at least 🙂
Check out Eric Schwartz work :
This is something I’m working on right now. A logo for http://resistance.no/
I’m wrestling GIMP to get this one done. I also got myself a new tablet, a Wacom tablet this time. The Aiptek tablet I have is good but not good enough. It’s not responsive enough in certain applications. Probably the drivers fault but what can I do? The Wacom tablet works best so far.
So many possibilities so little time 🙂
