Nice to Meet You! by Namiiru Nice to Meet You! by Namiiru
Hello everyone! :aww: This is Erin. She's my lover of all things cute 'n creepy, confident, and slightly bossy botanist. She won't like me for saying that she's bossy...

I've been wanting to paint her for such a long time now. :eager: Along with Apollo, she is the only character whose design I have set in my mind - my other characters still don't have finalised outfits yet, and I also find myself constantly tweaking their designs in my head. Hopefully I will get around to them soon. 

Remember these sketches?
Character Sketches by Namiiru
Her design has been updated quite a bit since then, huh? :giggle:

Anyways, I hope you like this. Erin was a lot of fun to paint. :heart:


Apologies for the detailing in her hair. I had a terribly hard time visualising how the Dutch plaits would look from this angle. Why did I have to give her such a hairstyle that I would struggle with? :iconlazycryplz:


Also.....
I PROMISE I will reply to notes and comments as soon as I can! I appreciate every single one of them! :heart:

You have some very detailed and wonderful art ! The detailing in the hair looks rather accurate, good job. Great job with the shading and the glare on her glasses/eyes and face.

You  just got another watcher :)

She's Erin, my OC. I knew nothing about Twilight Sparkle when I designed her. I guess they do look alike! :giggle:

I first thought it was a human version of the pony from the new series. I see you made a lot of OCs, how cool that you can make them easily. I wish I could too.

Many people have said the same thing! I guess it is an unfortunate coincidence! :giggle: I first learnt of the pony after creating my OC.
I'm sure you could make new OCs easily as well. For me, I kinda needed to make them quickly since I had to write a story as part of my college assignment. For some, I thought of their personalities first and based their designs around that...whilst I had an image in my mind for other characters first and then shaped their personalities from their appearance.

How does it feel to make something and then discover something very similar exists? Rather positive or negative feeling?
I see, it goes both ways.

Namiiru Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
I agree that it goes both ways. I didn't feel bad about it though. I've learnt to expect that something similar already exists every time you create something. I'm not sure if you can every truly be original.
