Have you ever even looked at Rarity? She has a curly mane and tail. Just because she may look similar to Rarity with wet hair it doesn't make the mane the same. Beside that, are you gonna act like that for every character that has similar colors? She has different eye color, actually a completely different mane if you look at other commissions of the user in their favorites and also she seems to be supposed to look a bit like Rarity. My, some fans are just whining about the smallest things. She is an alicorn, okay, but there are thousand of them, so who cares. It's a fan OC. Just ignore it if it bothers you.
"Have you ever even looked at Rarity? She has a curly mane and tail."
Well i thought it was pretty obvious that i was specifically talking about the wet mane. I'm sorry if i wasn't being clear.
"Just because she may look similar to Rarity with wet hair it doesn't make the mane the same."
True, that's why i clearly said: "almost the same" But the thing is that it doesn't look just similar, it looks very similar, in fact, and again, is almost the same. Have you ever even looked at Rarity with her wet mane?
"are you gonna act like that for every character that has similar colors?"
Well at this point is pretty clear that my issue is not only with the colors. If that said character takes very distinctive traits from a canon character, claiming to be an "original character" and receives such praising(as shown by the comments and the almost 2000 favs) for this kind of derivative work, then yeah, i'm gonna act like that because i don't like how some people try to make pass as original something that they made almost no effort on making it distinctive from canon characters and consider it their very "own" creation.
"She is an alicorn, okay, but there are thousand of them, so who cares. It's a fan OC."
Usually they are easy to ignore, but not so much the ones that get undeserved praising and attention.
"Just ignore it if it bothers you."
Well if my comment bothers you, maybe you should follow your own advice instead of responding with five lines of text. Hey, i'm just saying.
Like I said, the character normally looks different from Rarity. If you complain about the character it's just wrong. It's the user who drew it that way, but that's not the commissioners fault. So it in fact it is a normal OC and not a rip off of Rarity. Beside that, most OCs look similar to canon characters. They're ponies, it's really not such a big drama if they look similar to another character. And it only "receives praising" because the artist is popular. Most people fave because they like what they see and not because of a character. I speak from experience. I've drawn OCs of other people before too. If they post comments like "such a pretty character" it's for the thing in general. No one runs up to the original creator afterwards and praises the character. Most people don't even care if it's your OC or not. And it's a commission after all, so who cares if the character has a simple design without effort, the artist just drew the commission and it's popular with deviants. So after all it is and stays a normal OC and nothing to complain about.
This is an original character, so she can make it however she wants. The improtance is that she doesn't take a cannon charater as her own, so it's not very necessary to say things like that. This is still an original character in people's eyes. I agree with you about the similar things of the character, but Rarity and this character is NOT the same. The mane, the color or the things you pointed out doesn't make them the same
Thanks so much for this lovely commission,Glitter star looks beautiful. I adore the colouring and just everything about this picture,Definitely worth the money. It was a pleasure to commission you,You were really fast with drawing this too,Hope you enjoyed drawing glitter star. Love all the shiny and sparkly effects too,Glitter star's eye's are breath taking,Amazing pose too.
I guess she is supposed to look a bit like Rarity, but you should first look at the other pictures. This one looks more like Rarity than the other pics of her that the user commissioned. Also, why does it bother you? The background ponies nearly look all the same from shape and some even have similar colors. It's not that a big problem in my eyes if it looks similar to an existing pony just because it's one of the mane six.
Do you even realise what a mary sue is?,And how rude your being? A mary sue is a character with no flaws and always wins at everything,None of my characters are like that,I suggest if you can't say anything nice,Don't say anything at all,And just because a pony is a alicorn,It doesn't make them a mary sue,The saying 'Don't judge a book by its cover' is a good saying for you to learn since you shouldn't judge a character by looks alone.
it's kind of obvious this thing will happen if you make an alicorn. seriously, luna moves the MOON, celestia moves the SUN, and cadance can control ponies' love. how does that not, by proxy, make all alicorns OP?
