Even in the drawings of them are like night and day. Octavia's usually have muted and soft colors that create a sort of calmness to the work even when she's in front of a whole crowd like the last one. While on the other hand Vinyl's drawings are bright, colorful, loud, and just reach out and grab ahold of your attention.
Both of them catch the eye in their own different way and it obviously reflects the way these background characters have grabbed our attention in the show.
Its kind of nice that the fans have taken these two characters and saw them as possible friends despite the fact that they have different tastes in music, but they both share that same passion and that is where their friendship comes from, that passion for music. That's just my interpretation of it though.
I've rarely seen the fandom have them view each other in an antagonistic light, sure they might get a little annoyed by each other, but that happens with friends sometimes, at the end of the day their still buddies. (I mean in the comics animations and what-not I've seen of them)
Its just a cool little friendship that the fandom helped create.
