Ha-ha, charade you are!
@GreenLinzerd
Not sure what I’m doing that you’re not, because that… doesn’t hugely look like Noodle, lol. (EDIT: And that honestly doesn’t look like Mina either, now I’ve looked her up.)

I guess they’re primarily referring to Noodle’s phase 2 look, where she had purple hair with long bangs?

Though IMO, they still look totally different apart from that.
Actually, having thought about it, I guess complexity in the design is part of it. The two OCs shown take an elegance-in-simplicity approach to their design, so I guess there’s more of a risk that they’ll bear a resemblance to another character; if they have a relatively small number of defining features then it’s statistically more likely that some other character out there will share some or most of those features.

That’s fair, yeah. I don’t tend to put a large number of details and stuff into my OCs (even when I do add stuff to their outfits and the like, more often than not I draw them in different outfits anyway).

Work in progress.

This is my new character, by the way. The one people claim looks like a character from Evangelion.



I’ve never seen that anime, so I couldn’t say how similar they look or how similar they are personality-wise. (Worth noting, too, that this is a nude ref—I’m working on giving her proper clothes that fit her personality and the setting.)

The resemblance to Noodle is superficial. The hair is very similar in style but it’s not the same colour, and she doesn’t really resemble Noodle facially, and like you said, Noodle has only had that style at specific points.

…I dunno, man.

Well anyway, I’m really liking this character, so I’m eager to showcase her for a full pic. (MEGA cutie.) Sketch is more or less done, but I might make the tail still bigger… 😅

I think giving her a rad hairstyle would go a long way. Especially if it looked "robotic", like all geometric-like. I think since she’s very inorganic-looking, having some more stylised and artificial-looking hair would suit her better than the semi-realistic hair she has. Also the eyes. Having expressive eyes is key. Putting a shine on them would be the simplest way I can think of. If it were me drawing a robot in my style, I would make the eyes more oval-shaped (vertically) and give her visible whites and pupils, but that’s just what I would do. Hope that helps somehow! :)

Also thanks for the compliments on the new gal! I’m especially pleased with how she’s turned/turning out, so I’m glad y’all like her.

Hmm. What type of hairstyle are you thinking? I’m having a hard time picturing robotic hair. Unless we’re talking about something like Jenny from that one TV show.

Though TBH, I don’t want Glitch to look too much like a copy of that.

I getcha, yeah. I’ve drawn characters with regular eyes before, but it’s not incredibly easy and I don’t know if making Glitch look more like that would make sense. ^^;

I did think of Jenny, but not like that. This is what I pictured, please do excuse the messiness.



See how it still looks like hair but rather than being thousands of strands, is instead a few dozen larger pieces made out of plastic or something similar? This hairstyle is more tomboyish than what you seem to be going for, but it shows the kind of physical structure I was thinking of. I’ve seen it done before but have no idea how to search for the images. ;~;

You could also be more creative with the style than my example, and make something… well, like I said earlier, more geometric and "cool" looking than an ordinary hairstyle.

Also, I finally (read: after 4 years) fixed my graphics tablet settings so the touchpad mapping isn’t stretched across both my monitors. In other words, when I drew a circle with my hand an oval would appear onscreen. And now it’s fixed, OH BOY LINEART FEELS SO MUCH SMOOTHER AND MORE INTUITIVE. I put it off because I was afraid I would have to relearn how to use the thing, but I got used to it in 10 minutes. ;~; So I’m simultaneously annoyed and relieved, lol.

Hahahaha! been doing that since i got my tablet lol. i immediately noticed it and forced my working space to meet the aspect ratio of my screen. I don’t care if it means sacrificing about one sixth of the mappable working area of the tablet. more space for me to rest my palm on.
