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

Crossfire seems like a nice name. I personally prefer Chrome, but I used Torch for a bit (until I had to reset my laptop:( ). Wow. What a difference. But I'm usually caught in the crossfire between Chrome users and Torch users, so... yeah. Crossfire seems most effective from my perspective.

But what about Rockmelt? I made a character just for this comic you have and I even sent you a message and you still haven't responded...He doesn't have a name yet but it's a good design for Rockmelt see for yourself [link]

I was using Rockmelt up to just recently before switching to Torch. Sadly Rockmelt creators announced that in a few months they will be ending support for the browser and focusing on the website and mobile version instead.

Cool! Are the colours based on the 'earth' (sea/land) colours of the logo? I haven't forgotten the requests for Rockmelt, believe me!

Have you heard the development team behind Rockmelt are shutting it down to focus on other things? Bit of a shame really, looks like Rockmelt will be no more. I still have some design ideas I want to get down though, and Rockmelt is still the kind of character which I'd like to have in the Websurfers comic at some point. Here's Rockmelt's news post on the matter (one of them anyway): [link]

:iconbluemansonic:
Bluemansonic Featured By Owner May 1, 2013
Yes, and if you didn't forget then why didn't you at least respond when you got the message? Also now that you mention the news that matches this design even more so since it's kinda like he's defending his Title and that's what the vest is for...idk why I put glasses on him though it just kinda matched with the vest...I think

ParallaxMLP Featured By Owner May 2, 2013
Yeah sorry about that, I read all messages so it's not like I could have missed it, I'm just notoriously bad at writing back to people (very bad habit of writing a message and then not clicking send... the same is true of texts, emails and stuff on the web!). I at least knew that people had asked for Rockmelt, haha.

There are some other browsers as well requiring attention, working on those (slowly). Right now priority is really the next Websurfers, and as far as that comic goes, there aren't really any plans to add 'new' characters just yet (not at this point in the story). But I still need to get some designs finished so I'm prepared, I think! :)

I'd vote for candela. It's different enough from Firefox so it wouldn't be confusing, plus you can then make light jokes, since candela is a measure of luminous intensity.

What about operating system ponies? Like Windows, Linux or Snow Leopard?
Maybe even computer brands? Alienware, dell, Toshiba, Apple? Anything like that?
Famous game icons? Or even a computer that transforms into a pony!
Of course these are only suggestions. You don't actually need to do any of them at all. I just hope you do. Have fun playing around with any of these ideas if you want to.
