ITT: rapist gerbils became a fun Hamtaro-esque adventurer!
>>35777719we do need some amount of personality for the others in her group, even if its not as thought out.
OH YEAH. TIME FOR /TG/ GERBIL.What's the /tg/ gerbil? It might be a hamster, who knows, who cares, but it's small and it's got fur and it's probably not a rapist. All that matters is that it's named /tg/, so it's time for fan art and fanfiction and it's going to be here forever and a day.WHAT'S BEEN ESTABLISHED SO FARIt's named /tg/. Or Teegee. Or /teegerino/. Or Tig. Tigolowski. Whatever, you decide.Other than that, there's been a bunch of designs and some of them are cute, some of them are mildly sexy, and all of them are awesome because they're gerbils (or hamsters, or chinchillas? Maybe it's a vole? What is a vole exactly?) named /tg/.If you're more curious about what people did in the last thread, check out the archive. Probably will find something if you search gerbil.
Let's going Adventure!
>>35777853I ddon't know, you raise some good points but I think >>35777629 put it better than me. Or to make another example, think Harry Potter. At some point all the kids get a pet, those are familiars even if not DnD familiars. Leaving aside that one was a shapeshifted human, what would those pets do all day in Hogwarts while their owners were at class? The answer is, hamtaro-style antics.Anyway, I tthink I defended my suggestion enough for today. I'm going to sleep (it's late here), I'll leave this to /tg/.
>>35777766>AlastairBelieves he is Pseudodragon but is in fact just a Lizard.Actually pretty intelligent, and likes to show it. He's eloquent and smug. He likes a well thought out plan and is usually convinced that his plans are the best course of action. Of course, because he tends to prefer words to action, often times his plans get left in the dust while TeeGee and Urf run in leaving him in the dust.Due to his size, he's actually pretty good in a fight, but he doesn't like it and avoids conflict whenever possible. >UrfAn simple, but utterly honest and kind Earth elemental.Determined and strong. After he sets his mind on a goal, he will pursue it even after it's been shown to be a bad idea. He doesn't like to leave jobs half finished. Looks up to TeeGee a lot, admiring her ingenuity and resourcefulness. He is intensely protective of all his friends and doesn't take insults lightly.>GobsA shy, tiny gelatinous cube. She doesn't particularly like conflict but she worries a lot about the others in the group. Particularly about Urf who she has a massive crush on but who is too dense to notice. When stressed her first instinct is to hide, but she fights it hard because she doesn't want to let her friends down when the need her. If danger ever truly threatens them, she is actually quite brave, but she doesn't see it in herself. Sees TeeGee as a role model for her drive and bravery.
Just for fun, I made an album of all the artwork so far.http://imgur.com/a/J8x3a
>>35778439all your're missing is>>35777921
Since Alastair turns out to be a regular lizard who thinks he's a pseudodragon,I guess we need a redraw of him then?
>>35778439Where's the Pangolin?Ain't a part without a pangolin
>>35778522Probably should, what kind of lizard is he?I'm thinking bearded dragon
>>35777766I'd say the exact opposite makes sense.Right now,>>35778263this group is pretty bad. Too many characters made too quickly, and none of them are really all that great.If anything, I'd say to hold back on her supporting cast and just focus on making /tg/ great.
>>35778589Fair nuff. I banged that out pretty fast anyways, mostly as a potential starting point for people to go off of. Figured I'd get some fast, cheap characterization out and we could refine over the course of the thread.
>>35778263>these descriptionsMaybe you should take a back seat for a little while.
>>35778611It's good that you're showing initiative, but we definitely don't want to be rushing this thing. It's not like there's any time constraints or post limits, so we can do things at a nice, natural pace.I mean, we don't even know if Teegee's named her shovel or not, let alone whether her companions are mythical, mundane, or if she has any companions at all.
bump because I got a good feeling about this.
>>35778622how about you do something then
>>35778682I figured her shovel's name was going to be Shovi.
When does she meet an eccentric camel named Hassan?
>>35779428...SON OF A BITCH!
Bumping with more art.
>>35779471DAMN YOU DICE GODS!!!
>>35779471this is a good thing,you are a good person
>>35779471OOH.I like the idea of useing the Dice as Bolas.
>>35777719I want to play!
>>35779596while it's archived, look here >>35735158
>>35778622>>35778682Seriously though does anyone have any ideas for this stuff? Or even critiques on >>35778263? Where do we go from here? That was by no means intended as a final character list. I just threw them out as Ideas. What things could we change to make them work better?And if we want to focus on TeeGee first, then what about her? We know that she's a bit of a dreamer, a lover of stories and that she has a fiery passion in her to go make great stories of her own.We know that she's a competent fighter who can hold her own against mightier foes. She's brave and clever. And we know that she has a flair for the dramatic. But that's about it.
>>35779785silly and idealisticnot afraid of embarrassing herself (you can't be if you're spouting dramatic prose whenever dramatic things happen)better read than you'd think, given how much she likes to emulate heroes from the pastlikes caramel (because why not?)
>>35779713Oh thought it was a pick up game. That shit would have been tight.
>>35777719>>35775743I hate everything about it. That color pattern makes it look like an albino moeblob wearing a weird animal costume instead of it being an animal. It's because a grayish black is a normal human hair color. It messes with perceptions and depths. The colors themselves are also more or less off theme. There were several color schemes much better than this one. It's actually the second worst of the lot.
>>35779785>>35779835can be a fair-weather friend if you're not really close to hergets jealous if her friends leave her alone for more than a few days at a timehas a large collection of shiny things that she admires when not adventuring (not all of which are valuable, but don't tell her that (she probably wouldn't care even if you did))
>>35779933then you should have said something earlier instead of pissing all over it after it's been settled
>>35780002It's really not been settled. I just particularly liked that scheme so it's the one I put into the album.It's also the one that the artist kept using after the initial colorings. It's not so much Settled as it is, being used. If a ton of people come out and say "Hey lets use the brown one instead" then we could still switch. There's only 3 colored pictures so far.
Every good Hero needs a rival but that's just my personal opinion. Don't take this too seriously.>captcha Alone Bushka
>>35780002Well to be fair I do have the sai files saved in case her colour scheme needs to be changed.It's not set in stone yet
>>35780060I like it
>>35780075>>35780053these guys have a point, so >>35779933, come up with something better then, if we like it we'll use it
>>35780060Interesting. What's her weapon supposed to be exactly?
>>35779785> Where do we go from here?Calm down, breath in, a just relax.It's just a /tg/ hamster.We don't HAVE to make this into something. There's no weird, monstrous pressure that screams WE NEED A /TG/ HAMSTER. IS IT DONE YET? GET IT DONE, WE NEED IT NOW.If you just want to throw ideas around, go ahead, and see what sticks or doesn't stick.Right now, I think the hamster itself is pretty decent. Neck fluff is good, I like the shovel, and the overall design is simple and easy to draw. But, that's still plenty of room for refinement and innovation on the design alone.For instance, the neck fluff. A ring of spiky hair is one way of going about it, but there's a lot of variations to that theme that can still be explored.From a single puff to slight curls to a more jacket collar type design, we can really figure out how to make the character look good first before we try to slap a personality onto her.
>>35780156A brush,it seems like
>>35780156looks like a broom
>>35780142Well it's meant to be a broom but right now it looks like a broke water bottle on a stick. Open to all design changes in favor of better characterization.
>>35780002>settledHa!Look at this man, and laugh!
>>35780185>>35780168>>35780171I like the idea of it being a paintbrush that's used like a broom. It's seems like a neat way to take advantage of the size difference.
>>35780185>a broke water bottle on a stickCannot unsee
>>35780189well, it's no longer being discussed, sorry for assuming that that meant we'd come to an agreement
>>35779933I'm not wholly in love with this color scheme either.It's a bit too somber, a little plain.I'm just imagining her in a room of hamsters, and I just don't think she stands out enough.Maybe instead of gray, a more vibrant color? Maybe some kind of pattern?I almost want to say tiger stripes (/tg/ and /tig/er, get it?), or maybe even white tiger stripes.
>>35780207How is it used as a weapon then? We've discussed the Multipurpose aspects of the shovel. How do we make a paintbrush useful?Maybe she's a caster to TeeGee's martial? Using the paintbrush to draw runes?
>>35780286I like it. It combos well as a sort of mix between a way to write magic symbols, as well as a sort of magic staff or broom for flight.
>>35780220That wasn't even discussed more than a few hours ago, and you're expecting something as vital as principle coloring to be even roughly determined, let alone settled, in such a short span of time?Well, certainly, if a color scheme came around that people just fell in love with and drawfags began making tons of art with that scheme, then certainly it could happen in the span of a few minutes, but since that hasn't happened there's no reason to shut the book just yet.
So did we decide what she was?Is she a Moe Dire rat, an ordinary hamster or a Dire Hamster?
Well I can't see some colours and I'm pretty horrible with them in general but here's my idea.
>>35780286I'd prefer more mundane uses, but still clever ones.Simply things like using oil-based paint to temporarily slick up a surface, or using an acryllic as a weak glue, and painting a black hole on a wall that another hamster slams into, or being so good at trompe l'oeil that he can make it look like a nail is sticking out of a wall that some foolish hamster tries to grab as he falls.
>>35780452I like the not completely square bellypatch, but not so much the color scheme itself. Though now I want to see the Grey and Black color scheme with that bellypatch design.
/tg/ what the fuck are you doing?
>>35780452Would you guys prefer is she had two full eyes or the having the right eye blind/faded?
>>35780501Taking the bait and running with it so ardently that no one can stop us.
>>35780452Definitely brighter and more energetic, but a bit too "blond," even though she's a brunette.Maybe something more red/orange, or is that too hamtaro?
>>35780520>>35780522Oh. Carry on.
>>35780529That was my initial thought as well, but I think it's be too much just Hamtaro.
>>35780508Faded would be an interesting touch, but I think both eyes being functional is more important.Also, both eyes being full would make her look more energetic and focused, methinks.
>>35780529Maybe we could go with more of a deeper red color. Less of an orange and more of a scarlet or burgundy.Not the most realistic coloration for a hamster, but it would stand out a bit better.
>>35780485But that's always going to feel false. Like, Wily Coyote levels of false.I'd prefer for her to be an actual threat who has some utility. A worthy foil to TeeGee.
>>35780600>>35780553I'm actually not hating a white and red color scheme.It's a little TOO bold, though.
Also, here's that template from last thread.
>>35780743>Color Scheme: THE BLOOD OF MY ENEMIES RED. Maybe just a little bold.
I was also messing with the Hue/Saturation and somehow ended up with this.
>>35780604Teegee is a hamster with a shovel. Probably a talking hamster.As far as threats go, she's not exactly high on the list, nor is she really the epitome of "reality."While I can concede that black hole on the wall is a little bit of a stretch, the idea of "magical painter" has been done to death to such a degree that I'm far more willing to explore the idea of how a mundane painter can be an interesting rival.Even if it's not combat, and he just uses his paints for propaganda purposes, and only uses the paintbrush as a club. Maybe a dastardly splash of paint here and there.
>>35780743I think that looks pretty nice, though I agree that it might be a bit too strong. I'm not sure what would balance it out well though. Maybe a splash of a lighter shade on the collar and ears?
>>35780840>anime drow ver
>>35780848See it's not that she's a Magic Painter though. I was picturing it as drawing out runes. It's not like the "Draw a picture and bring it to life" kind of thing. It's "draw a rune of force to bust open a door."As far as how a mundane painter could be a good foil to her... I'm just not seeing it.Teegee is an adventurous action girl hamster. I don't see the Propagandist being a very good rival. And if she's just using it as a club, it's not really utilizing the fact that it's a paintbrush too much.The rival has to be able to challenge the hero at her own game, but in a different manner. I see the Magician action girl working really well as a foil to the Martial Action Girl.
>>35777719Fuck me, I saw this thread this morning I figured OP would get his dumb SJW ass banned to next Friday. You guys turned his shitposting into actual fucking work. God damnit /tg/, you truly are the bulwark against every kind of shitpost and troll on 4chan. /tg/ still gets shit done and really is the best board.Cheers m8s
>>35780743There's potential but I still like the color scheme we've got right now better. Especially with the Black and White pip dice totems she's got.
>>35781012>SJWYou have no idea what that term means. The guy made a thread that was entirely meant a rape joke making fun of shipping. That's about as far away from SJW territory as you can get.Thanks for the compliment but if you're going to throw insults at people, at least make them proper insults.
>>35780878I went for a full blown orange, but it's still a really bold red.
>>35781012I'm not sure if I should accept a compliment from a guy who clearly has no idea what the fuck he's talking about, but thanks, I guess.
Kind of Aipomish.
>>35781229What does it look like as Black and Yellow?
>>35780501Doing what /tg/ does and knows best:GETTING SHIT DONE
>>35781257Black and gold, maybe?
>>35781341This is the first one that I like more than the current model. I guess maybe I just like her primary fur to be Black?We could always experiment with her belly and tuft coloring, but honestly I don't feel like she should be super flamboyant in color.
>>35780743>>35781072>>35781229>>35781341I still find better the Gray/white combination
>>35781402The red and purple are probably the wrong direction, but I'm liking this vibe >>35781341a little more than that gray and pink.The black and yellow is a little more energetic and bold. It still needs some work though, maybe pink ears.
>>35781448I feel like having the collar be a separate color might help. Maybe make it grey instead for better contrast?
>>35781067>>35781103I meant to say the thread from this morning about that guy making rapist gerbils about 4chan boards. I thought it was a tumblr troll coming up here and, via rules, wanted to shitpost, starting here. I didn't read much into the thread because of chores around the house and making food.You guys turned a troll's bait and turned it into a project. This is the kind of thing /co/, /v/ or pretty much any other boards could never pull off. This is why I've been with you folks for 2 years now, you guys are fantastic and coordinated.Have an Imperial Fist
>>35780818This color scheme looks pretty shitty
>>35781473Why would you think it as a tumblr troll? It was clearly a butthurt fa/tg/uy who didn't like that the winter ball was happening the way it was. Nothing about that post even mumbled tumblr.Why would tumblr even troll /tg/?/v/ /b/ and /pol/ are all FAR more likely targets.
>>35781544Decent. How about straight up white for the collar?
>>35781473>>35781538Actually, OP was satirically commenting on the winterball threads, while simultaneously proving that with even half an effort, /tg/ could easily make a character a hundred times better than whatever the 4chan house people had come up with.All that was needed was a baiting initial post, and then a milder post immediately after it.
>>35781573A bit better...
red/gray with white collar perhaps?
>>35781593>Implying these aren't the same people in both threads.
This is pretty cute.
>>35781651There's a pretty big difference though, especially considering the difference in baggage.
>>35781593Teegee isn't tasked with being a representative of the Board as seen by the rest of 4chan. That gives us a lot of freedom.Considering the necessary restrictions on /tg/-tans character that come with being an Avatar of the board, he's pretty great.He captures our creativity, our versatility, our indecisiveness, each of our many different hobbies... I challenge you to make something better.
>>35781538I don't rightly know. Tumblr people are all kinds of crazy and stupid and I'm not the sharpest tool around. I thought it was that because of the whole thing with Moot getting SJW mods and all that shit with him having his staff ban GamerGates threads and all this shit. I'm still confused about this stuff and I just figure more and more Tumblrettes and Redditards would get on here and shit all over 4chan.I'm just a paranoid anon that doesn't understand what happened some time ago.Anyways, the gerbil looks fucking badass. Has anyone considered TeeGee being Teej's pet?Anyone? I'm rather fond on /tg/-tan
>>35781641I like it, but I'm still not sure I like it as much as the Current model.
>>35781733I think it was just being left as ambiguous because shit posting was started up.Also tumblr sjw people are obsessed with being PC esp around things like rape and race. That's how you can tell who they are.
>>35781733Yeah, that was one of the initial considerations. It's been mostly shut down though.I think the current setting is a Wizard school. Teegee and friends are all familiars of the wizard kids and go on adventures while their Masters are off at classes.
>>35781705>Considering the necessary restrictions on /tg/-tans character that come with being an Avatar of the board, he's pretty great.That's kind of like saying that a guy with a ball and chain is pretty agile.Sure, he's agile for a guy with a ball and chain, but no, I think I'm going to bet on the other guy in the race.>Teegee isn't tasked with being a representative of the Board as seen by the rest of 4chan.No less, and more importantly no more, than /tg/-tan is.But seriously, let's try to focus on the hamsters and not try to trudge up this senseless fighting.
>>35781635Sorry, I don't think I got this anywhere near close to good looking.
>>35781784Now that's just a charming concept and I love it.Fuck, I wish I could play a 3.PF game where PC are familiars animal companions of wizards and Druids, rogues and whatever else that get those. That's be a pretty unique experience
>>35781733>Has anyone considered TeeGee being Teej's pet?Let's try and keep these things as separate as possible.Mostly because of things like /pol/-tan and /b/-tan and other unsavory characters.Teegee is much better off in her own universe, especially because its more fun (and more suitable for her) to create one.
>>35781821I think it's alright. The shade of gray feels a bit off to me, but I think it works.That might just be because I really like how that shade of red looks in general though.The grey does help with offsetting how vibrant the red looked.
>>35781785>>Teegee isn't tasked with being a representative of the Board as seen by the rest of 4chan.>No less, and more importantly no more, than /tg/-tan is.What?What do you think the point of the -tans is?They're personifications of the boards. They have to be representative of the entire board for the purpose of showing interaction with other boards via their -tans.>>35781821Yeah, the black coat with yellow belly and face is the best so far as an alternate to the Grey and White with Pink highlights.
>>35781870its going to go that way. they will steal teegee
>>35781821That looks too animu.How about chocolate brown fur, very light pink, almost white belly and caramel colored collar?>captcha: addnsom pink
>>35781892Oh, it's you.
>>35781784>I think the current setting is a Wizard school. Teegee and friends are all familiars of the wizard kids and go on adventures while their Masters are off at classes.It's up there. I'd actually prefer a more martial character to be Teegee's owner, if she needs to have an owner.I'm almost imagining an Adventuring School, not just a Wizarding school, and rangers and druids bring their animal companions, and the wizards and sorcerers bring their exotic familiars, and then a barbarian or a fighter brings Teegee.She'd sort of be like Boo, except not a miniature giant space hamster, and she wouldn't permanently take up an inventory space.
>>35781892If we firmly establish the setting here, it makes no sense in the 4chanhouse. Besides the general consensus over there was to let Teegee develop without influence toward or away from the 4chanhouse.You're the "Shadow Cabal of the 4chan Winter Ball" guy aren't you?Can you be paranoid somewhere else?
>>35781958Oh that's actually really good.
>>35781870>>35781892Ah, yes, agreed. I can see /pol/ as picking up the pet/familiar thing and make a Nazi hamster, or German Sheparp nazi dog.
>>35781962I could be him...or just some random guy to fuck with you
Rivals in action.
>>35781883>What do you think the point of the -tans is?They don't represent anything any more or any less than any other fan made random creation.Teegee is just as, if not more, of a representative of /tg/ than your guy is. Plus, she has the added bonus of being innately adorable and likable.
>>35782020TeeGee looks pissed as fuckIt's adorable
>>35782020That's absolutely bloody brilliant.And that's not just me saying this because you're a drawfag and I'm licking your shoes or anything.That's genuinely fucking awesome.
>>35782056>MY cartoon board personification is more legit that YOUR cartoon board personification>Because I said soThe autism is overbearing.
>>35782056The -tans are a fanmade creation whose stated goal is to represent each of the boards as a whole.Teegee is a fanmade creation with the goal of being cute.How are you not getting this distinction?You may not LIKE the board-tans, but they fulfill their given roll.Teegee isn't meant to and doesn't encapsulate the board /tg//tg/-tan is meant to and succeeds in encapsulating the board /tg/It's like trying to argue that Kryptofuck is a better representation of /co/ than /co/nrad is.They're both fanmade creations, but one is not meant to be a personification of /co/ and the other is.
>>35781927I thought I would hate it, but it's not terrible.I think dark brown fur might be the way to go, though the rest could use some variation.
>>35782193Oh damn that's actually quite cute. The dark brown is definitely really good.
>>35782177>The -tans are a fanmade creation whose stated goal is to represent each of the boards as a whole.Did you even read your own mission statement? The 4chan House has never, and actually can't, claim to represent anyone aside from the few people that subscribe to it. You have no legitimacy as representatives outside of span of your project, and even then you guys (your words, not mine) don't have a strict sense of canon that enables any sort of representation.Expecting people to respect your avatars as their representatives, simply because you said so, is borderline madness that even crazed tyrants wouldn't attempt without a significant martial force.
>>35782193Fuck yea!I always said that brown was a great color to go with when it came down to animals, feels natural.Now that I see it, the collar's color looks out of place. I have an idea. Why not give her a scarf instead of the neck fluff?
>>35782193>>35782205I think dark brown might be a tad dull.Even the near-black is a little more exciting.
>>35782304I like the neck fluff because it's supposed to be sort of like a neck beard, though it might be good to see some variations of the design.
>>35782284Hey look, Winter Ball Cabal anon is back!
>>35782359Never liked the whole neckbeard thing. If you got to have a beard, keep it to your face. Lets not ruin her with the stupid grognardery some of us can pull. Lets keep her a little more safe from the less appealing side of our board.
>>35782284Then why are you mad?If you don't care about the 4chan House, then why get angry about the existence of /tg/-tan?He was designed by /tg/ and for the purposes of the 4chan House, works perfectly fine. And if you DO care about our representation in 4chan House and don't think that /tg/-tan works then, as you said, there's no strict canon. You could suggest any other design for /tg/-tan and it could work.But most of us who give a shit about any of the inter-board nonsense are just fine with /tg/-tan. If you come up with something better though, it's open for discussion at all times. In the Winter Ball thread.
>>35782448I disagree. It's part of the /tg/ image, and it looks cute on her.
>>35782489The "It's cute" has a lot more sway on me than the "It's part of /tg/" but I agree. It should stay.
>>35782489>>35782521Ya same here. I really love the idea of the tuft of neck fur.
>>35782489The tuft is pretty swell. I'd tickle her.
>>35782284>>35782456Dudes, keep this gay shit to your own thread.No one wants to hear about your tea parties.
>>35782448I like it precisely because it turns the neckbeard thing on its head.CUTE ON HAMSTERS, NOT ON PEOPLE.
>>35782521Well, I brought that up because she IS supposed to rep /tg/. But either way, the bottom like is she looks cute with it.
>>35782620Same with the scar over eye. On a person it's pretty edgy, on a hamster it's pretty adorable.
>>35782489Fine, I agree it's cute, I'm not saying its not, just has some bad connotations to it that people from other boards that end up encountering her could think>/tg/ as a hamster>HURR DURR NECKBEARD HUE HUE HUE HUEWhat do you think that fur/b/ros on /b/ are going to do with TeeGee the first chance they get? They are going to yiff the bloody hell out of her and ruin her for us and make us hate what they turned her into, like what they did with /x/, but even more personal.But that's me being the paranoid fuckwit that I am.
>>35782729Why would fur/b/ros ever see it/care about it? This is strictly /tg/?
>>35782729WHY DO YOU FUCKING CARE?
>>35782788So far, it's strictly /tg/.But how long before the other boards take notice and see how awesome our hamster is, and how long before they decide they want one for themselves?
>>35782729Why would you care what other people think? Letting other people ruin things for you is the sign of a hipster and a weak mind.
>>35782818... they won't.Not every board is like /tg/.In the same way we don't look at /co/s homebrewed superheroes and think "Damn, we need to make a /tg/ superhero" no one is going to look at /tg/'s magical hamtaro thing and think "You know what /mu/ needs? A musical hamster to play with /tg/ at Adventurer school."
>>35782818Quite frankly I think the /tg/ gerbil is a rip off of Vivian James.We're copying /v/ of all boards.
>>357829061. There's nothing wrong with /v/. It's the board that discusses video games. Just because you don't like to discuss video games doesn't mean you have to attach some sort of persona to the entire board.2. Vivian James is similar in that she's a character made on a board and serves partially as an avatar. In all other respects, she's completely different, from the nature of her creation to the ultimate outcome.
>>35782809Because this is a nice thing we got that's as innocent as you can get on 4chan, hell, the web. As much as I got unsensitized to most everything, it's those innocent and cute things like TeeGee that reminds me there's still some good out there.Yea, I have a negative view of the world, blow me.
>>35782324I like it quite a bit actually. Though it's definitely between the Brown and the Black for me.Honestly I don't mind the current color scheme of Grey/White/pink
>>35782981I am just lamenting of the fact that we're so bankrupt of creative thought and jealous of the success of Vivian James we have to create our own Vivian James just to have something to idolize and masturbate over.The entirely concept of the /tg/ gerbil is so forced and pandered its going to be the next Xeno.
Quirks/motivation/backstory Wrirefag here.I've worked out the story outline and done a rough draft of the prologue to my Teegee story, but it's MUCH darker in tone than I intended.Could someone link me to a good place to watch Hamtaro? I need to realign my writing mood before I write the first chapter.
>>35783268Fucking fantastic.It's the perfect crime.
>>35783163Dude, what the fucking hell are you shitting through your mouth?
>>35783309Don't reply to trolls, silly.
>>35783268POMF!!!JUST FUKKEN POMF'DGODDAM IT I LOST IT SO HARD I WOKE THE NEIGHBORS.
>>35783309From shitposting it came, and to shitposting it returns.
>>35778589>this group is pretty bad. Too many characters made too quickly, and none of them are really all that great.this describes 90% of anything /tg/ has ever made
>>35783309Oh you think the tg gerbil was the very first of these board avatars? It stretches back to xeno, back to Cultist-chan,cutebolds, doobies, Macha,and all the way to Taldeer and LIIVI.It all ended in circlejerking clusterfucks that ruined the board.And already the gerbil circlejerking is well underway.Just as planned I supposed.
>>35783419>>35783428>>35783163>>35782729Lotta rays of sunshine in this here thread.
>>35783268Adorable.Quick google turned up this. If you just need it to get into the mood this might be enough.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a0FkbLi21IYSurprisingly enough, I actually can't find any full episodes in any of the usual places.
>>35783560Teegee munching on sunflower seeds drawing please.
>>35783560Goddamnit.I remember watching this shit with my sister all the time.Fucking nostalgia.
>>35783560meant to link>>35783242 as well.
>>35783560Oh my god. I just remembered that when I was like 9 I had the Hamtaro Gameboy advance game.Hamtaro Ham-Ham-Heartbreak.I hundred Percented that thing with my little sister.
Got lazy with this one, gonna take a break for a little while.
>>35782020>You dense motherfucker>Do you know what you've done?
>>35783839Take your rest noble drawfag. You saved this.
Here's the first episode.http://www.downvids.net/hamtaro-episode-1-340712.html
>>35783242So are you going to be including the Pals too? And if so, will you be using >>35778263 these characterizations, or your own original ones?Does anyone have any opinions on the other characters?
>>35783890Why are you mad?
>>35784744I think he's saying what Teegee is saying in the picture.Maybe. It's kind of unclear.
>>35784787Hm, I could see that. Thank you for your interpretation.
Welp, thread's pretty dead. I guess everyone went to sleep.Hopefully it's still up tomorrow. I'd love to flesh out the Rival more.
>>35785402Well, at least throw out a name for her(?)
>>35785402>>35785482I would but I am uncreative, and therefore a faggot.
>>35785482Yeah it's definitely a girl.Something with the initials GT maybe?
>>35781958Yes! A thread and a half for a Boo reference! I was almost worried.
>>35784115I plan on including them, but I'm going to use my own characterizations for the most part. I'm undecided as to Alistair's pseudodragon status. I have to take a closer look at whether narratively controlling his potential is worth the awesomeness of Teegee being a dragonrider in future stories.I'm still iffy in including Urf at all. He didn't feel natural in the story outline I wrote up, so I cut his part and I'm having trouble justifying his presence.
>>35785818I feel that if we look at them from a DnD angle, earth elemental and ooze are too close conceptually - both are slow moving, barely intelligent piles of stuff. You should probably take license from that, and work in the other direction - find a characterization that suits you and go from that.
>>35781958I don't know, there are a couple of things I'm not sold on.1. This idea calls for fleshing out the owners maybe a bit too much. I think that we should be focusing on the pets as much as we can.2. Wizardry schools already have many precedents and use established tropes; there's a lot less for all-class schools, and it binds us to a D&D world (we are already there, but I feel that too many D&Disms end up killing OC).3. A lesser thing, wouldn't rangers and druids keep bigger, fightier animals?However, the idea that Teeg's owner is more martial could work all the same, maybe he's the kid who's not that good as spells, or comes from a simpler, more practical background.Another idea could be that they are all part of the same adventuring party, but that becomes harder to justify. Maybe Teeg as the barb's pet, a familiar and an animal companion start wandering on their own in the dungeon and meet there another companion or two? Grimderp twist: their owners are actually ded?(I'm just throwing out this ideas for whoever wants to write, I'm not doing it because english is not my first language and I wouldn't feel comfortable writefagging myself.)
>>35786523We could go for a lighter version of the Mouseguard or Redwall worlds where there are only these intelligent creatures of various sizes, and no humans.
>>35786689I don't know. As much as I like redwall, I feel like it kind of wastes the scale of the animals.Being the size of a hamster matters a lot more when you're living in a Human sized world.
>>35786725In the first thread one of the original ideas was to just have it be Teeg's pet.Not everyone likes the board-tans, I know, but it would keep the stories about Teegee from becoming exposition on Teegee's human. Teej is already a (semi-)completely developed character, so the only mention of him would literally be in passing like in the Hamtaro anime. Also the original concept for >>35778263 is that they are all Teej's pets, because he just has a random menagerie of exotic creatures or something.
>>35783583Bamp with art.
>>35781733I remember last thread someone threw out the idea of her and the companions living with some lonely old man who was a retired adventerer (warrior or maybe bard) who would tell them these fantastic stories of stories they'd heard or adventures they took part in.
>>35787742I like this
>>35787742Please be a bard where all his tales are of fucking fantastic creatures>Ex. When i was your age i saw a dragon with the biggest rack you had ever seen, the one problem was it wanted nothing to do with me. So as i seduced it, I had to avoid being killed, but in the end this old man got what he always got
>>35787742I could picture the lonely old man bit. He cares for them as a way to provide for something other that himself, and since he doesn't get visitors he talks and tells stories to them even though, as far as he's aware, they don't understand him. It would be am easy way that Teegee could have heard the stories that have inspired her.
>>35781402This is still my favorite but if people are still deciding on a color scheme this was my original for a color scheme, I made the colors look better from the first time I colored it.
but do she Battle Toad?
>>35786819It's bad idea, because I'd much rather not have this be a footnote to something as terrible as the board-tans.
>>35781669A bit too yellow, but I'm not opposed to a white hamster.Bijou is best hamster.
Hello. I am a friendly gelatinous cube
>>35791168what exactly is bad about the board-tans?
>>35792832Something something not /tg/ related something something circlejerk something something the tan doesn't represent the whole board why isn't he a neckbread something
>>35792832They're pretty dumb.Like, really dumb.Like, really, really, cringe-worthy dumb.Like, the kind of thing that comes out of a group without any sense of structure and nothing but clashing egos, culminating in throw-away material not worth anything but still toted about because the group has invested so much time and effort into it.Did I mention how dumb the whole thing is?
>>35792832Are you genuinely asking that question? I thought it was fairly obvious.What they've got is a bunch of pretty lame characters that are so generic and boring that they've got about as much personality as a bowl boiled tap water, because the majority of the chefs are just "idea" guys who can't actually contribute anything to the pot.And, when a chef actually does put something in, it's usually something that's just a superficial "it something related to this board so it has to go in!" idea that is both tasteless and about as genuine as Epcot center.They board-tan's are these weird parodies of the boards they claim to represent, these weird distortions so far removed from the actual boards that it's practically insulting.There might have been a chance for the board-tans to not be terrible, but the group is so incompetent that all they've managed to churn out is some mediocre pictures, some straight-up terrible writing, and an enormous heap of bad ideas heaped upon bad ideas created by the largely useless "idea guys" who make up the majority of the project's population.
>>35792832Right now, they've got /tg/ as some high school drop out going to a ball with some kids because he couldn't get a proper date. And people are writing stories about how he should have pedophilic relations with both the boy and the girl.The board-tan crew is a rough crowd. Best avoid them.
>>35786523>1. This idea calls for fleshing out the owners maybe a bit too much. I think that we should be focusing on the pets as much as we can.Basically this. Being a pet/familiar puts too much undue attention on the human affairs.
>>35793279Ok, so what about awakened animals?They got 10+ to Int and Wis stat so they have sapience
>>35793359I'm actually starting to feel there's not enough of the other games being mixed into this.A little too much D&D, not enough anything else.
>>35793572what other tg worthy games fits the concept of an adventuring hamster? I'm genuinely curious
>>35793604Mouse Guard?That one homebrew one with the toys that guard their little human.SPIRIT OF THE CENTURYPrometheus the created
>>35791194Got some of my first erections fantasizing about that fuzzy bitchPlease tell me I'm not the only one..
>>35793604Bunnies and Burrows, for one.And, if anything, D&D doesn't actually lend itself directly to the idea of an adventuring hamster any more than most other games.
>>35793572I figured this was generic fantasy setting, possibly low magic. But I'm not a fan of the wizard familiar idea.
Well I tried. I guess phone and enthusiasm isn't a suitable replacement for proper equipment and talent
>>35794674YOU DID THAT ON YOUR PHONE?!Jesus I'm jealous.
>>35794708It's obviously more difficult than drawing on paper/with a tablet,but it's not impossible.During my times without tablet access,I just keep drawing on my phone (even bought a stylus for that,shit's useful)
>>35794775What phone do you got, anon?Sheit, mad props to you
>>35794797Ah,that wasn't me who drew that.That said,iPhone 4 with the Sketchbook Pro app installed.
>>35794797I have the galaxy note 3 using an app called Paint JoyI usually don't pay drawings though. And the only other /tg/ related drawing I've made is this manly dwarf
>>35782874I found out about Teegee and thought exactly that except replace /mu/ with /lgbt/, that shit's adorable.
So was there a consensus about the little group's place of living?
>>35795456There's no real way to reach a consensus aside from an idea so awesome that people cling to it.I don't think anyone's made a particularly strong argument just yet.
>>35795456I dunno. Maybe this place?
>>35795456Nope. Some seem in favor of Wizard/Adventure School, some seem in favor of Redwall-esque.Seems to depend on the Time
>>35795499I can get the appeal, but I honestly think that if we're going to involve humans the Wizards' Familiars idea bares more fruit than the /tg/'s pets idea.Fit's thematically very nicely and allows for a lot more interesting adventures.
>>35795499How about no?Like never in a thousand years, please leave, no?
>>35795499Nothing good ever comes from there.Also, it looks like they've been discussing just abandoning the whole "house" idea because it's weird for 50+ people to live in one house. Something about condos or even states or something.And, in any case, let's not get mixed up in that board-tan business. It's a rather sordid affair.
>>35783560>4:50>Stay close to me, Senoritaham, and let my love vibes keep you warm and toasty.
>>35796163That hamster is always toeing the line between awkward frat boy and straight up Pepe-style rapist.
>>35795499rip in peace
>>35795499Hell no, have you seen how hostile people here are towards the board-tan business?Besides, this works better in its own setting anyways
>>35796858This. I don't mind the board-tans, but honestly, it works better as a stand alone thing.
>>35795499I have nothing against the board-tans, but we gotta keep Teegee away from that. She's her own unique thing, and associating her with the board-tans would just be a useless hangon that probably would never be properly explored. We still have to figure her story out anyway.
What's TeeGee's favorite food/drinkOr least favorite? Any other things about her that could be with coming up with?
What is this furfaggotry.
>>35799435nigger did you live in the 90's!?
>>35799435It's a very short dwarf with a very full beard
>>35799435>Animals behaving like anything other than animals>Must be furfaggotry.Just like Jake the Dog or Bubbie the Whale eh?
>thread made mocking the winterball>after obligatory shitposting, actually generates a decent amount of OC and thoughtnever change, /tg/, this is why I keep coming back
>>35799693It's still tongue-and-cheek mocking the Winter Ball.Especially considering how this has managed to resist descending to the same level of faggotry that pervades the winter ball threads, despite the efforts of board-tanites.
>>35799100Sunflower seeds seem to be the hamster food of choice. It might be a bit too hamtaro thought.Maybe some sort of root vegetable that can be dug up with a shovel? Carrots or turnips?
>>35799955I blame board mixing for that. But the whole point of the winter ball is so that we can all talk to each other and maybe explore the other boards.
>>35800013I don't want that kind of board mixing though. Please go.
>>35799999but... this is /tg/.... you don't need other boards
>>35799955>>35799999How about you queers quit talking about that shit outside of its containment thread?It doesn't need any more advertising, considering the entire thread is practically spam.
>>35800026>Please goNo u
Just leave whatever board-tan discussion over in that thread, is it really that hard?I post there, but I know better than to bring it to other threads, especially when what we're trying to do here isn't even related to the board-tans
Needs more hamsters
>>35799100>>35799979I'm not sure about favorite, but she should definitely not be a picky eater and she should eat a ton. Like an ungodly amount, but never gain a pound.
>>35799979>>35799100Back when I owned rats I noticed they all had different favorites. One liked dried strawberries, another waffles with peanut butter, cinnamon sticks, and one even loved catapillers
>>35799100Earlier someone mentioned Caramel.No reason. Just because.
>>35800241>Like an ungodly amount, but never gain a pound.It all goes to her hair. She would look like a giant puff ball if she didn't trim regularly.
>>35800449I'd imagine it'd make a considerable mess and get stuck in her fur. She acts all resentful when someone offers it to her, but it's secretly one of her guilty pleasures.
>>35800449>>35800506Well worth the risks!
>>35800458That's be kind of funny. She has to guard a banquet Hall full of food. So she keeps a diligent watch, over the food. All that food, for all those people. Expertly made by a large team of chefs working long hours.By the time everyone else returns all the food is missing and there is just a giant fluff ball trying to say she doesn't know what happened, Making up excuses that thrives must have stolen it all and she couldn't see them because her hair was in her eyes.
I look into this thread and it makes me feel like I'm at some family restaurant where all the kids crayon colored pictures of the mascot have been put up at the entrance.
>>35801905I was trying to remember what all those pictures reminded me of.You captured it perfectly.
i did something, i hate the eyes
>>35803076Looks goodWhat about the eyes do you not like?
>>35803335I'm not sure, it just doesn't sit right with me for some reason
>>35803076I like the eyes.They're ninja rape eyes.
>>35803447I like the eyes. You could try making them less detailed. Otherwise maybe make the pupils smaller?
>>35803076I'm pretty sure that those eyes are looking into my soul.A point of order: Can Teegee see out of her right eye with the scar? Some art has her with a blank right eye and some does not. I kind of like having the aesthetic of the blank, useless right eye, but maybe a bit too dark for rape gerbils
>>35803858>but maybe a bit too dark for rape gerbilsI'm sure there's someway to make it look cute.I think it works fine with >>35778263
>>35803858So Teeji is a girl? Is there any particular reason why?Sorry if I'm out of the loop - I just got here because I'm starting to draw cute Teeji hamstah chan.
>>35803934It was sarcastically chosen at the start of the last thread when people weren't being serious about it. It just sorta stuck.
>>35803934My guess is that girls are cuter, and that being a girl automatically separates her from hamtaro.
>>35803934>>35803971And it's cute.
>>35803978>>35803971I'm okay with this. It's not as if /tg/ has a specific gender, and we do enough waifufaggotry [see half of the goddamn quests out there] to be able to see ourselves as a woman, sometimes.Now, what clothes go good on a hamster with a bob-cut for hair...
>>35803934the original thread started as something about rape gerbils so someone said the /tg/ gerbil should be female and then everyone started building on from that.>>35803858I personally like both eyes working if only because it gives depth perception. also the damaged eye takes away from the cute if you tried to color it.
>>35803971> sarcastically chosen at the start of the last thread when people weren't being serious about it.Man, what the fuck is wrong with you.Firstly, none of this is serious. It's still not serious. If you want serious, you probably shouldn't be in a thread about hamsters.Second, nothing was sarcastically chosen. Everyone was taking things serious from the start. For fuck's sake, this is serious business, and you're trying to debase that.
>>35804009we know that a leather strap with dice tied to it looks good on herno fedorasmaybe a cavalier't hat?
>>35804090Nah. I kind of like just the Dice Strap. With only other thing that I could imagine would be maybe a bandana, but the neck ruff kind of covers that look. She's pretty complete as is.
>>35804172>>35804183>>35804090So something simple, so as not to cover up the fact that she's a hamster. A poofy hat, matching a musketeer or a cavalier or something. Got it. May I ask why clothes are a bad idea on hamsters?
>>35804201they don't fit the aesthetic we're seeking to emulate with teegee. Hats should be the defining accessory for this sort of character, and tegee is rather complete as it is.
>>35804172>>35804201I've always liked these kind of poof hats.Maybe not a knit one, though.
>>35804229the shovel makes the... er.... geribl
>>35804229>and tegee is rather complete as it is.There's still plenty of room to work around with the design. It's not like it's stone that we're carving here.
>>35804229and also easy access
