lighting sigh

ocean man, take me by the hand lead me to the land,

Peridot (Steven Universe) is autistic

-Uses an alternative communication device (her pre-recorded voice), especially when she needs to get complicated thoughts into words

-Echolalia: “clods” “clod” “CLODS”

-Doesn’t understand why what she says hurts the crystal gems

  • “What did I say?”
  • “Mean? I was just being ~cool~. Amethyst loved it!”
  • *tries to joke and smile and wave at Amethyst*

-Has trouble with communicating (earth specific vocabulary) so she makes up a word system that makes sense to her

  • in addition to her amusing words for mundane things: “how do you feel?” “big.”

-very literal

  • “Oh peridot, you’re killing me!” “I am not! that would violate our truce agreement!”
  • “you’re funny!” “Funny?”
  • Garnet: ”You’ll know when I’m joking.” Peridot: “eaahhhh”
  • “What is ‘nerd’? can you use it in a sentence.”
  • “you’re a real gem peri” “yes I am a gem”
  • “this drill is pure irony!” “actually it’s mostly carbonite”

-Odd humor

  • “I could call her… two things! Two clods… one clod…”
  • “Amethyst! Check out this … rhythmatic pulverizer!”  *flails on ground laughing*

-Upset by the unpredictability of the Crystal gems

  • “that… was not the correct answer…” (when Amethyst didn’t laugh at her joke)
  • “I have come to the conclusion that they are all defective”

-mimics behavior (the shirt nose flick thing)

{Speculation beyond this point}

-her limbs might be both comfort items and weight stims. She’s very upset when she’s parted with them and she clutches the foot that steven returns to her and rocks back and forth a little

-Glasses- maybe for light sensitivity

-meltdowns? Pearl:“*sigh* another one of her temper tantrums.”

Hello Haru!! I was wondering if you have or can make a tutorial about lighting, because it's kinda difficult for me and personally i love how you make such potent but soft games of lights, especially in your latest no.6/YoI au drawing. Hope you have a nice day/night/afternoon! *insert heart emoji*

Thanks so much!! It’s a bit hard to explain because it’s super expiremental, but I tried my best. I rely heavily on layer modes when it comes to lighting. It’s the lazy and pretty way out lol

1. Basic color and shading.

2. On a new layer, I filled all the contents of the drawing (NOT the contents of the layer) with black, and reduced the opacity to about 45%. This gives you the cool shadow.

3. Repeated step 2 with the color red, then erased for the lighter parts like shion’s hair (both the black and red layer)

4. Here I added 2 layers, one at overlay and air brushed some pretty bright colors, then another layer on add/color dodge or whatever you have for the colourful highlights and bits of light everywhere.

Tbh the only thing that runs in my head when I’m lighting is MAKE IT PRETTY (and in the process I defy all laws of lighting)

I hope this helps!
