Primavera - Vintage Version by BellaCielo Primavera - Vintage Version by BellaCielo
Oh look! More vintage computer personifications / yuri science children! This time it's Memory Test Computer, Whirlwind and baby SAGE-tan having a picnic on Boston Common, presumably. (Multibillion dollar defense computers have never looked so tiny and lumpy and vaguely confused!)

In case anyone wonders, yes, it's their biological kid; in cptlfrghtr's and my particular take on the OS-tan universe (and possibly others', though I can't speak for them), female/female reproduction via scientific/magical intervention is pretty common among OS-tans. (I explain it away in-universe as a result of most OS-tans being female and the only ones around to reproduce with, though personal appeal obviously comes into play.)

I couldn't decide whether I liked the original or this one better, so I decided to post them both. Messed around with the color balance, focus and added some film grain using this tutorial as a guide. (Thanks for the lead, Samantha-Wright!)

Compare and contrast with the Original Version. Which do you like more?

Whirlwind-tan and SAGE-tan are cptlfrghtr's, MTC-tan belongs to me.

The final effect is more subtle than I would've expected, but it's definitely a good look. Points!

I'm glad to hear it! I was concerned it was too subtle as well ... especially when compared to the original, the color in this one looks almost normal while the original seems imbalanced toward green/yellow. Could've played with it more, but I liked how it turned out so I kept it. (Maybe later I'll experiment with more dramatic aging effects.)

I also think the vintage version looks better. But they're both super pretty!

Thank you — I'm undecided myself.

I actually think this version looks better :3
