It's OpenVMS-taaaaaaaaaan~

Last night I was going through my art folder and stumbled upon the WIP of this image... I wondered why I'd ever put it on the back burner for so long, especially considering that it was so close to being finished.

I worked on it for about an hour, added some color effects and a background and, voila, finished product. (Though I might do more experiments with the lighting here - the painterly style and dark, monochrome color scheme seem quite conductive to experimentation).


Despite the title, this has nothing to do with a certain Radiohead song...

I abandoned this for months, but when I went back and looked at it I was amazed by the clothing detail too. @_@

Glad you like it! It's a really different style from what I usually do...

You're going to have to explain this one to me. Is she despondent because HP is dropping its PC manufacturing business?

Good guess, but that's not it...

VMS-tan is just, well, apathetic... has been since the early 1990s when DEC's market dominance started badly slipping. Though the fall of DEC and being bought out by HP certainly didn't help her already acerbic attitude.

So yeah, she pretty much always looks this way... when she isn't opening proverbial cans of whoop-ass on people who foolishly start trouble with her or messing with the minds of Unix-tans, that is. (She loooves her a good fight!)

Ah! That explains that. Your extrapolations are always nifty. I'm guessing she just tries not to remember the Compaq years?

She looks pretty! I really like how you did the style of her hair and the clothing that she's wearing. :love:
