[DL] Vinyl Scratch with Red Eyes by BB-K [DL] Vinyl Scratch with Red Eyes by BB-K
Hi, folks, it seems we finally have our own and official fan-preferred red eyed Vinyl Scratch, this is the alternative to the canon magenta-eyed Vinyl Scratch, which is originally made by Nahka. You can see her red eyes in a few of the official MLP Comics. But in my graphic design point of view, she's a lot more attractive with red eyes, and guys like Neon Lights / MC W1SH will like her more.

Note :
As per the preview image said, I never temper with the model and its jigglebones. I only change the Pupil's eye color in the VTF files. I used existing vectors which feature her red eyes as a reference, and I notice it's using the expected RGB spec of 255 0 0, so it's pure red. With that kind of change, it should be compatible with both Gmod & Source Filmmaker.

Please don't forget to credit me when you use it. ;) Thank you.

Disclaimer :
Original Model is made by Poninnahka :iconponinnahka: [I'm using the Overhauled version]
I want to thank & credit LunarGuardWhoof :iconlunarguardwhoof: for helping me create a separate model, otherwise I'll only just overwrite the Material>Model folder's VTF files. In case if any of you want to have 2 separate Vinyl Scratches.
Nahka, who also for helped me to identify the cause of my VTF Settings when I was importing the TGA file which I took it for granted and resulted in pixelation on the red eyes' edges. Now it has been solved via I compare Nahka's original VTF file & its settings.
Postal-Code :iconpostal-code: for having a nice conversation with me on this and helping me to submit to the Gmod & SFM clubs when I'm not a member there.

Of course. :) Well, just the sad part that many people in the Gmod & SFM community still use the magenta eyes. :(

Magenta eyes are more realistic, and match better when considering Vinyl's color pallet. That and while you can shut your eyes and refuse to accept that her eyes are not red you are only deluding yourself. Come up with as many excuses are you like but it just don't pan out, red stands out but also clashes with the color scheme.

Red is more fitting cuz RED(eyes)+WHITE(coat)+BLUE(mane)=MURICA 'MURICA

... that is not a good reason, especially since few if any characters give off a strong 'America' vibe. Vinyl Scratch least of all.

It's alright, but red is the fans' original choice before the magenta reveal. But sadly, many Gmodders / SFMakers still use the canon version.

But of course, originally I was waiting for someone to make it, but sadly, I'm late in the game, so the wide use is not strong as last time since Nahka released the model. :(

But I can't tell, did his model have her eyes magenta?

Yes, it's magenta when you can recognize them. Original fan ones was pure red, hence I wrote the RGB Spec in the first place.

If you want you can submit this thing to ponysfm.com too!

But one question still because I personally don't need that thing here anymore: Is it the whole model hexed with another path or will it replace the original Vinyl?

It's alright, no big deal. :) Same case that I don't join SFM-Ponies & Gmod-Ponies, I'm not a big player in those stuff and not to mention don't want to add extra artworks into my inbox. :(

Well, a solution would be to take away the DL-Stuff from your Featured page here on DeviantArt so it wont interrupt your normal artwork.
You still can submit it to those groups and PonySFM then and it will show up on all those but will not interrupt your main artist work.

Sorry, man, I'm a mixed artwork type of person, I got normal but I also got Flash animations & SFMs too. It's a big variety in there.

The thing will be posted under my name sadly. We can't add a feature where I can define another name.
You are credited there anyway because I'll only give the link there to this DeviantArt page.

But may I ask why you don't want to register there? You know, Feedback is always great to improve a site :)

Not really, I'm not a very active SFM artist, I don't do those very often. Plus, I only make still images rather than video.

So yeah, thanks for the method that you did, after all, I gave you the permission to display it at the website. Thank you very much.

Next week, I might as well look into working out the cutie marks for both Spitfire (she has an old orange lightning before its reveal in Wonderbolt Academy) and also Soarin (He has quite some variety of at least 2 before Rainbow Falls came out)

It's been hexed to be in another path.
It won't be fair if I replace the original Vinyl, so I'm giving people the chance to have both at the same time.

Besides, did you download the file? It's compiled together.

Well, it depends on the demand. But take note, the red eyes were fan guesses before the Canterlot Wedding episode, so it wasn't meant for her being secretly a vampire.

A fan guess that still seems to stick with some people even after her eyes were revealed to be magenta.

Same case for Spitfire's Cutie Mark, fan version with orange lightning is more badass (As a hint, I'm making a separate pony out of it too). The canon version between Spitfire's CM doesn't have more dislike compare to Vinyl's magenta eyes. But still, like in my description, to those who study graphic design and study colors, red is definitely more stand out. Magenta made Vinyl look flat, I had a bug when Lunar accidentally gave me Vinyl with blue eyes, it makes it a lot worse than magenta eyes. If I were Neon Lights and fall in love with Vinyl, I definitely love her red eyes and will compliment a lot about it, otherwise, I'll talk more of her hair instead.

I see. So it seems there is some backlash just because her eyes aren't red. 

And now that you put it that way, it does make sense that red is a good contrast/stand out color for Vinyl.

BB-K Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
There is, and those backlash are strong and the debate, even today, just won't go away. But Spitfire's CM, not a big deal actually. The fan version is only a nice attempt before its reveal in Wonderbolt Academy.

Yes, to those who take my opinion carefully and analyze again themselves, surely they know red is more standout than magenta. And of course, play yourself as a boyfriend for Vinyl.
