Drawn for my steven universe band/human au
the beach picture is taken a little while before the band was started (hence garnet’s dark hair and the fact that pearl doesn’t have an undercut)
it also explains why lapis is anywhere near garnet and pearl seeing as she kind of hates them now

also i’m thinking of making a separate blog for this band au and making it a bit of an ask blog but i’m not sure if i should???
