Thread for creating /his/ tan to represent the board to all of 4chan.
Pic related is clockman who can see everything.
>not using a historical historian who's important to the history of history
Sima Qian-chan is the best possible option.
Please be cautious not to bite the bait too eagerly.
reposting from other thread
if someone can draw this guy and that industrial/colonial/ civil war era loli
I think we would all be happy
Im going to bed
I think I can safely say that marble bearded man is officially the basic board-tan design. The loli is a secondary but board related design.
the pair has basically been decided.
The only camps left to stamp out are the solo-tan fags on either side.
>Best board-tan imaginable
Yeah, that's Jacobitism in a nutshell
NEVER GIVE UP
I was thinking I love the mabrle statue thing but we can compromise and have the statue and the loli, he could teach her history and she could be like an industrial era london school girl
Then draw a bearded loli
>marble and loli do the Dragon Ball Z Fuuuuusion!
>beard loli appears
>they look in a mirror
>goes back to the two people
>"we're NEVER doing that again"
OK, let's get some consensus here.
The Greek philosopher/historian seems to be accepted by everyone. Just two things that don't seem clear to me. Is he Herodotus and is he made of marble?
Second, most people want a loli. An ignorant companion to the wise first character. that sounds fine. Personally, I'm not sold on the potato industrial loli here >>22803 , some other people have suggested a military-based loli.
So focus. Kindly answer my questions on the historian to settle the matter, then what kind of loli do we want?
made out of marble and lived through all of history as a living statue is my vote
Loli is his unrelated to him doesn't know anything about history and is annoying. But a good sidekick for funny comics
well im off. Hope the discussion goes well. Pls agree on having both tans.
here's a loli french soldier from last thread.
Eh, I like the idea of the loli representing the constant historical revisionism of the present, while Herodotus represents some particular fixed, unchanging view of history from the past.
Can he maybe pretty please have sunglasses
I feel like having a generic bearded greek/roman old man is alright, but give him some design character, the sunglasses are a perfect fit, it makes the character stand out without hurting the significance of the character
That's embarrassing that a single board can't decide anything and have to pick both because they're so indecisive.
But really I think it's just three of you that are so set on YOUR idea winning that you aren't going to accept loss, so just grow up. Also reaction faces are great arguments BTW
This. It's better than any of you faggots wanting one or the other could have ever hoped for.
The decision is that both are equally acceptable.
>btw you lost
You're forcing you're own rule on a board that doesn't give a shit. And then you declare victory.
You're worse than a bird playing chess.
Inked. Sorry if lines a shitty, I haven't ate all day and my hands are starting to shake.
What I'd she was made of wood, like an actual nutcracker? Then the swirls could be justified. Stone statue and a wooden doll.
>mfw i'm going to make over 100 immortal loli comics in the next 4 months
hehe yes. fuck yes.
W-what? Why the hell would I do something like that? That's just gross.
hehehe I don't know history. I'm just here to draw porn.
This is a blue board. On this board you cannot post such things. I want a finished version of this though so I might do it myself tomorrow.
the arguments i'm seeing for beard-tan is that loli's are gay so fuck you we want a greek statue. loli isn't /his/, statues are totally /his/
neither side has good arguments, but we are on 4chan and therefore anime wins over your degenerate clay husbando
nope homura best girl /his/toria time traveling schoolgirl loli who talks to a pervy statue in the art room at her college
you're just mad because your statue is a dirty old man
Do you? You understand you are arguing about the creation of a fictional mascot to an anonymous imageboard for the sole purpose of funposting and creating OC, right?
Here's a sketch from the last thread I lazily colored.
So actual living marble statue that lived through and saw all the important historical events
Maybe named Memp/his/
Maybe wears a toga, maybe wears a t-shirt and shades
Has annoying girl that might be related bothering him with historical untruths.
Anything to add?
Yeah but it doesn't have to be directly named the same name as him.
How about this:
He's a statue of Herodotus that was built and stood in Memphis and was named so because of that. Still a Herodotus statue but not literally herodotus himself
her main thing is that she is a time traveler who finds herself in mischief and /her/odotus is a dirty old man statue that pervs on /his/toria and the girls in her art class at her all girls college.
I bet you don't even listen to Pink Floyd, pleb
>Herodotus is the father of history
That would be sort of lost if the modern girl Historia is just his friend or something.
Maybe she reminds him of his daughter of the same name.
He has two daughters, Historia and Mendacia ("history" and "lies")
Maybe she's some pampered Victorian ojou-sama and the statue is her hired tutor? Give her a frilly dress and a hat, and a monocle for added cheekiness.
I still think she should be a little know it all asshole.
i like the idea of her and her classmates going on adventures and they travel back through time and the journeys are educational and the whole while, the statue of herodotus that she made is plotting some way to steal /his/torias pantsu.
in one comic, someone will take some of her pantsu and put it on his head and blood will gush out of his nose, it'll be hilarious.
Kind of rushed this one, but one more pitch for loli-and-statue before bed if it hasn't been decided yet.
Uniform should be obvious.
I like the idea of her being able to change clothing, additionally it could change with whatever era of history she's talking about.
It would also get draw fags to want to make new OC when she can be different every time.
Yeah, I know that, I just grabbed the first image off of google desu
you missed modern day time traveling magical schoolgirl
Inanimate objects turn to life, stone statue and wooden nutcracker, differentiates the loli from all the other board tan Louis by turning her into a doll with rosy cheeks, also goes with the military uniform theme.
There's absolutely no real consensus on the loli. We won't be able to decide something, and even if we somehow get a plurality in a strawpoll or something and declare a particular design "official" tons of people still won't recognize it.
I say we just go with the greek statue and a loli called historia. There isn't any further qualifications need to be made for the loli, she can be whatever people draw her as. The board is one day old, as time goes on, we might start to develop a board culture and she develops into more of a regular design. For now though I think arguing about it isn't going anywhere.
OFFICIAL BOARD TANS HERODOTUS (greek statue man with big beard) AND HISTORIA(loli).
I agree with this more than anything.
Tans change and development with the boards.
Just make it a stickman with a clock for a head, and wearing a toga.
Shit, the whole point of a -tan is to sum up the board in one simple design. The entire appeal of /v/'s board-tan is the fact that it's just a regular fucking dude.
>the whole point of a -tan is to sum up the board in one simple design.
>The entire appeal of /v/'s board-tan is the fact that it's just a regular fucking dude.
/his/ should be a dude with autism and severe potato face then.
I like this idea.
/his/ is young
/her/ is old
/his/ has ho pupils
/her/ has no iris
/his/ is made of wood
/her/ is made of stone
/his/ is colorful because it's a new-ish doll
/her/ white because the colors faded away
/his/ is female
/her/ is male
You know the contrasting, yet the same, ideas really do it for me
No! Troglodytes like you are putting a stop to the evolution of science!
We will create artificial memes! They are the future! And once we'll advance further...
We'll create a meme to surpass memel gear.
so he is a performance artist then? the board-tan of /his/ is a goddamn gypsy beggar?
only these retards will post their bullshit and eventually /his/ will fall into something.
hopefully it isn't this godawful living statue bullshit, haven't seen a decent picture yet desu, it is like all these anons missed the whole point of -tans and are going for some super serious wise old man vibe. fucking autistic if you ask me.
It's exactly what it is and you're crazy if you think a thread like this isn't necessary for a few days to contain the influx of people that inevitably come to a new board for the novelty and muh 4chan culture.
Memes do not evolve naturally on 4chan anymore. They are either forced by a tiny minority or they are become merely another "is this the start of an epic new meme?"
History tells us this.
memes are started when enough people find something amusing enough that they keep posting it.
there are 58 posters in this thread, if every single one agreed then they might have a small chance of successfully forcing a meme.
board-tans are an existing meme but these assholes don't seem to understand the process that goes into it. this thread is a circlejerk over old man statue tan, it isn't a massive collaboration of oc. this is a forced -tan thread, you can't force board -tans, they happen automatically over time.
every single -tan has a theme that basically resembles anime. you are trying to make some fucking autist western style saturday morning cartoon philosopher represent everyone, without asking their input and providing the kind of oc that people fucking laugh at deviant autists and their pictures of sanic for. i'm not entirely sure that you aren't all autistic.
the humanities section of this board is for containment.
Actually, I don't know how to draw anime, even less with full bodies.
i'd suggest you look up the suffix. some super duper immortal statue man is not a board-tan.
and it doesn't need to be super anime style, just not tin tin style. 4chan is a site based around japanese culture, if you are posting here then it should be assumed that you are on board. you wouldn't go to vampirefreaks and complain about the goths everywhere or jdate and complain about all the jews.
this is an anime imgboard and the board-tans are invariably influenced by anime. deal with it, faggot.
Christ mate not everything needs to be japanese here fuck off. We got the loli that fulfills anime side. I didn't even complain about anything japanese all I said was that the oldguy was good.
This is 4chan, not Facebook, not Reddit, not tumblr. If you don't like anime then fuck off.
I like the old guy, the two of them make up the "History and Humanities" aspect of the board. Whether the /his/ is the girl and /hum/ old statue guy is still up to debate.
Going to tug on the bait and bring up the fact that not every board-tan has heavy Japanese influences. People are aiming to make avatars that represent the aspects of the board. Sometimes the uggu~ kawaii animu doesn't fit and feels off. A person is free to make an anime styled version of a board-tan, but it doesn't mean it can only be that.
Great argument, let's go back to posting every stupid old normalfag meme.
Yeah and thats what I was saying when I started getting called a normie and said I hated anime. Can't reason with the guy.
Fugg off, noone can agree on a loli to have, but everyone has been able to agree on the cool bearded man greek man so far and there's been good fan art done of him so far. He fits the board well, fuck off autist we have one anime we don't need two. There are anime people here, and there's also plenty of people from int and pol and so forth, we have one anime and one non-anime to represent the two sects of people who go here.
Be glad we have one anime loli, don't ruin it.
i laughed when i said the old man is going to be a pervert and people got angry. it is like they don't know this site at all. it is a forgone conclusion. old man-tan is going to be spending his time chasing loli
fine. 2 loli and 1 old man, that is my final offer.
The majority of 4chan users probably haven't been here for more than two, maybe three years and never even browsed non-normalfag boards. It'll never be the same anymore.
Unless Hiro-tan saves us, of course. The wordfilters are a step in the right direction.
Pay attention to the thread come on.
Just recently, after the normal people went to bed. Overwhelmingly people supported the old man in the first thread and the top half of this one. There's also a lot more well made fan art of the old man. Most of the lolis posted are just premade lolis from other artists, or simple sketches, and none have received all the positive feedback as the of the old man posts.
BUT NO, NOT A SINGLE NON-ANIME IS ALLOWED EVEN THOUGH OTHER BOARDS USE NON ANIMEISH BOARD TANS
history doesn't even have anything to do with anime, greek statue is closer to history than anime girl.
but we could be the only board with a harem-tan
>Newfags can't greentext
You lost ages ago faggot, now i'm just doing it for lulz
There were a bunch of people in the beginning asking for no anime girl at all, and only the old man. Now there's people asking for no old man. We will have both. There's not even a single design for the anime loli so far, so there's nothing concrete to draw for her, without the old man attached to her, there's no way to tell if it's historia or not yet.
I didn't want to greentext in the first place retard
>keeps posting that he won
Makes you loook desperate anon
Someone just draw a loli in ye olde comics style and be done with it.
I just thought of somethings, what if the companion was a young Egyptian girl? Ancient Egyption civilization is a rather common topic in history and there were interactions between them and Ancient Greece.
I don't think the old man needs the loli desu. I sort of want this to be a board with actual history discussion. I can already shitpost with history themes on int and pol already.
all you fuckers ITT voting for loli only want lewd shit and don't realize how fucking stupid anime art style looks (read: I really can't draw that shit)
here's the loli with the fucking beard though
I'm going to sleep
I don't think any of them is a dog or a robot, or two people typing on the same keyboard.
You're just bitter your drawings will never be cute.
what is this shit? i don't even want to protect her smile.
>I didn't read the part that says read in parentheses
I watch anime occasionally you stupid fuck, just not moeshit
that doesn't mean the syle for like 70% of anime doesn't look like shit though
shut up snail you're not even the best girl
I already said I can't do the shitty "anime" style and I'm not trying to anymore, I'll leave that to the nips
>best body type
You know it's true
See image senpai
shit taste kiddo
