Got the amazing @hernyart to draw some obscure characters!
This one is Peridot from Puchi Carat. Puchi Carat is a 1997 Breakout-style puzzle game developed by Taito on the Taito F3 System. Like with many Taito games, quite a lot of care was put into the character art, design, and animation. The gameplay is simple, but fun - you direct the ball based on the location on the paddle the ball hits, and gain combos by disconnecting large portions of the gems from the top of the screen (which anchors the gems above the stage).
Fun Fact: Interestingly enough, many of the characters in Puchi Carat are named after the stone they hold. This is not dissimilar to Steven Universe - for example, the character on the right in the screen shot is named Garnet.
Peridot herself is a very suggestive character, much more so than all of the other characters - which I thought might make her a fun character to commission. I don’t tend to post on Tumblr much, but I don’t see the point in commissioning obscure character art unless I share it.
