Thanks to the enthusiasm of tomthefanboy and ral-across-the-universe, I finally got into the Steven Universe fandom after a couple days of binge-watching. And because I’m a helpless OC addict, I had to jump on the Gemsona bandwagon. So, I took an old character as inspiration and revamped her for this version.
I chose the gem because I wanted something that was visually similar to fire, and I loved how sparkly rough-cut Spessartine gems are. Just look at this!
It’s like a flame in rock form!
“Spessartine is a younger gem, full of energy and curiosity. Her wild nature can get her and her friends into trouble, but she will do everything she can to protect those she cares about.”
Even as an early development game, it has a fantastic amount of polished gameplay in it. I spent several nights giggling madly as I collected adorably happy slimes with my vacuum backpack, piled them into corrals, and harvested their slime poop for money. Yes, this is a thing!
Had to go and draw a version of myself as a slime rancher for the fun of it. And a tabby slime! They are my favorite! X3
So, I had a weird half-dream, half-awake-imagining scenario the other night. It involved Gaius getting turned into a big plushie dog, trying to escape from a lab, and him floundering with door knobs with those poofy mitts.
I kinda want a story of all that. For now though, have some art!
Hey look! I actually updated Evion’s original fox girl design! I wanted to make her colors a bit more similar to her Aurin version from Wildstar, so I ditched traditional fox oranges and embraced the pink.
“Ya wanna hurt my friends? Ya gotta get through me, ya scaly bastard!”
It’s done! It was a big experiment, but I’m happy with how it turned out, and I hope you guys enjoy it too. Gaius here is in his Monster Hunter incarnation, sporting some Zinogre gear while shoving a switchaxe down a Rathalos’s throat.
Man, I am so looking forward to 4U coming out in just a couple weeks!
Hawkens helps a staggering Gaius escape his recent mutation-inducing ordeal at the claws of a monstrous wyvern. The ginger-haired man is undergoing his own slow infection, but right now his concern is with the state of his friend and finding some shelter so they can figure out how to survive in this monster-infested city.
