Steven Universe is probably my favorite cartoon on TV (rivaled by Gravity Falls for me, but these are not by any means the only two fantastic cartoons currently airing). It has such unique themes, great action, catchy tunes, and amazing visuals all wrapped up in these quaint, subtle, quiet, 11-minute episodes, and I can’t recommend it enough.
Not that I have to. I suspect most of you have watched at least an episode of it.
I like the idea of the Gems in formal wear, so that’s what I did here. I admit that Pearl probably wouldn’t be quite so “glam rock meets Kate Bush,” but I’m a sucker for heavy eye makeup and dramatic shoulders (see: every piece of art I’ve ever done, ever). Amethyst seems like the kinda gal that would mix the edgy with the classy, and Garnet is always and forever, super regal. Steven, of course, couldn’t be bothered to wear actual formal wear, so I put him in one of those silly tux tees. :)
I’m preparing a few fan art pieces to sell as prints at Dragon Con - just a few, I much prefer the majority of my table to feature original work. This is one of them! I hope you enjoy it, and I hope you’ll consider buying a print at the show (or any I might have left over afterward).
