Chance Encounter by bobthedalek Chance Encounter by bobthedalek

"Still as clingy as ever I see then Vinyl"

I finally gave in to all the requests for Vinyl's mother to make an appearance. But it came with so many problems on my part. I told myself I wasn't going to design her to be similar to Vinyl, then Vinyl's brother was shown in the IDW comics, and I couldn't get the whole idea of a white unicorn family with different coloured hairstyles out of my head. So after working out that seemed to be the only way to go, I opted to give her a far different hairstyle from her children.

Then I went and had a massive argument with myself about how Vinyl should address her mother. Seriously. 'Mother' seemed far too formal for Vinyl, and no doubt there would be an argument if I used either the the 'Mum' or 'Mom' term based on spelling, so I settled for 'Mama', mainly because it's funny, and also because it really hints at Vinyl being a mummies girl, contrary to her attitude when she's performing. :P

And let's not even get onto the subject of naming her! XD

I love Vinyl's mum already! This is just brilliant! xD Also, 'mama'. That is indeed the perfect way for Vinyl to address her mother. :D
Great work as always! I really love the design you came up with.

Well, I've said I'm not taking individual requests due to the work demand from my university taking priority. This was mainly one of those ones so that my inbox message counter will now hopefully go down. :P
