rose and pearls

Another gemsona week post (nothing special, just a fusion)!!

This time, it’s a fusion between my Powder Rose Pearl and @blockingthesun  Gold Pearl, together, they make Peach Pearl.

Peach Pearl is a beloved pearl, with sweet and charming personality and modest manners too, her weapon is a fan (not pictured).

Tools used: Sai, Photoshop

Someone call a doctor, because doing this painting killed my hands. Good gravy. That foliage. HOWEVER. Finally, with some help and encouragement I managed to get through it. Special thanks to my fiance for carrying me through and not letting me die in a deep, deep sea of despair  :D

Steven Universe ala “The Swing” in homage to one of my fave painters,  Jean-Honoré Fragonard.

so apparently preview images for the art book releasing in july are available on amazon, and there’s a bunch of neat details in what little is available!!

•concept art for lots of scenes that would end up in episodes

•what appears to be an early version of sardonyx?

•pilot rose concepts!!

•pilot pearl art!

•pearl’s early designs toyed with ideas such as her concealing her gem with her bangs so she could look human, a conchshell inspired outfit, and multiple pearls in her hair. rebecca seems to have had a lot of trouble designing her.

•early plot ideas had the gems as beings sent from another universe to protect the human race, with a strong emphasis on “magic” as opposed to the current sci-fi tone the show eventually took

•rose would visit steven in his dreams and give him advice. whenever this happened, he would wake up surrounded by newly grown roses, which he is embarrassed of

•pilot alexandrites + an early sugilite?

•each crystal gem had a theme early on; garnet was space themed, amethyst was based on flora/fauna, and pearl was based on fire and rocks.

•garnet may have originally been named onyx

GUYS I HAVE A FUCKING THEORY

SO IN THE LATEST EPISODE MY SMOL BLUE CHILD ZERKON CALLED OUT THE FUCKING DIAMONDS ON SHATTERING PINK 

BUT DID YOU KNOW 

THAT THE ONLY THING THAT CAN BREAK A DIAMOND - I8S ANOTHER DIAMOND!

NOW PEOPLE THINK ITS YELLOW BECAUSE OF HER GUITLY FACE AND THE PEARL’ REACTIONS `

but i pose a second option


as stated by eyeball , rose quartz shattered pink diamond with her  sword

however in the episode bismuth , bismuth says that the sword can only destroy the physical form of the gem.


I believe that Rose Quartz had proofed pink diamond using the sword and them presented it to the only other gem that could shatter a diamond- 

another diamond.

but witch one?

to answer this question i would like to present this mural

in this mural we can see three gems 

one of them is definitely rose quartz

the other is greatly believed to be white diamond 

the third one - he one rose is holding- seems to be a pink diamond 

now , i think  that the event that this mural is depicting is the shattering of pink diamond by white diamond , as it looks like white diamond is about to strike the gem that rose is holding .

isn’t it fascinating how one of the highest ranking gems out of all of them didn’t even attend the trail of the alleged shatter-er of pink diamond 

its almost as if they didn’t want to become a suspect when all the evidence starts to point towards them.

how interesting

The second part of Gem’s Garden cards! 

I am still have no time to talk more than few sentences, because I am working hard on my student film Rusalochka (that translate as The Little Mermaid).

Sorry(

I allowed myself to take a break doing these arts in the middle of my exams, because I had a chance to share my art with the voice actors of Steven Universe with the help of my dear girl Crystal, who was on Momocon) I will thank her all my life long.

I lost some days making these cards, but I don’t regret about it, because the voice actors and you, guys, love them so much)

I still can’t belive it is happening to me, thanks you all for kind words and likes and reposts! It seemed impossible a month ago that people will love my arts. THANK YOU VERY MUCH AGAIN!) Have a great day, guys, and good luck at everything)

“And where was her pearl!?”

Judging by their faces, the pearls must’ve known where pink pearl was during the murder.

That, and they’re realizing that things aren’t adding up.

It almost looks as if Yellow Diamond shattered Pink, since she’s almost too eager to shatter steven and every single rose quartz to “put this whole thing behind” her.

I’ve heard people say, “only a diamond can cut a diamond.” I’m beginning to think that’s exactly what happened in the show.

THE CRYSTAL GEMS mugs!

You might have noticed i’m working on prints lately. I’m planning on printing mugs and print for Otakuthon, a convention in montreal.

NOW, i’m aware the gems don’t eat or drink but let’s have a little fun with it.

(PERIDOT with caffeine would be a nightmare, so the gems told her she was too good for normal coffee, gave her decaf instead and she, of course, would be like so proud of it.)

If you guys like these, I’m looking into opening a online shop. :3c
