My Little Torch by ParallaxMLP My Little Torch by ParallaxMLP
So here's another browser character/icon! This time it's Torch, a web browser built off Chromium source code. It looks and works a lot like Chrome, really (even supports Chrome extensions), though apparently offers more inbuilt features (like Bittorrent support) and a stronger focus on social media and sharing.

I love how this character came together. She's adorable! :squee: Now she needs a name... I had a list of ideas:

Aurora
Blaze
Firefly
Candela
Ember
Lumin
Pyree
Sparka
Crossfire
Incendia

I think I'm possibly leaning towards Ember, Firefly or Candela? I don't know, anyone else have any ideas? EDIT: Ok, leaning towards Candela thanks to all the good reasoning in the comments! :D


Windows Icon

Mac Icon

The Torch logo was hard to draw. There aren't many (any?) high-res references to get the dimensions right. I wasn't about to repeat the drama with the Safari logo trying to draw the map out in the 'globe' (torture) so I used a creative-commons vector of the continents which was such a perfect match that I'm wondering if Torch logo's graphic designer didn't do the exact same thing. :D

Hi! What on earth is this Pinterest thing, then? I don't see anywhere that people can buy/sell there. It does also seem to link back to my profile here (there's a "visit site" and a "found on ...." notification on each image).

No, they adopt them. Most people I recently saw adopting them used them as their Pinterest icon and say they are going to make a DeviantART so they can use them, just warning you incase anyone else has that idea. Also you buy them by giving someone a watch.

Very strange.... well thanks for letting me know! Does make you wonder if these people can read, though, haha. It quite clearly says where the image came from right there on the page!! Why would they assume it was free to use? I've even seen some of them coming up with their own names for these characters in the comments :D

I know its very annoying! There are hundreds of boards, and people have blocked me because I said it was stolen, I wasn't even mean though, I just explained *sigh*
I saw people selling Pinkie Pie , derpy, etc. and saying they made the character aswell, the sad part is people fell for it.

I think a lot of the people doing that are probably very young. If so, I guess we can't expect them to really know what they are doing.

It might lead to problems down the road if they're adopting characters as their own, but for now at least the site itself seems pretty clear on giving credit, whether people are noticing it or not :D
