Head canon that Blue Diamond changed her appearance because of stress
Since the Wanted arc aired, I’ve been thinking about Blue Diamond a lot lately and after seeing this video, it made me want to draw her.
In this video, @swaggythunder brings up a very great point about Blue Diamond’s appearance change from her mural depiction in the moon base to what we’ve seen so far.
In the mural, she wears what looks like a long flowing dress that exposes her gem and arms. Her hair color is depicted as darker than that of her skin. So we all expected her to look somewhat similar to that. BUT she ended up like this.
Why is that? Because she’s been mourning the loss of Pink, of course. So because of this, I wanted to draw what she could have looked like before Pink’s shattering.
Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love Blue’s design so much! I love the way she contrasts Yellow’s jagged and sharp design, but I don’t think Blue has always had the white flowing hair and mourning attire she has now.
Y’know I only took ref from that one image where Topaz was half in shot -leading me to assume her body as I did- but then I saw that better full shot picture showing she got rlly tiny legs??? All this time I thought I’d have Wreck-It Smiley But in reality it was Harold Ralph
What is your version of Music Meister's backstory since there is virtually none mentioned in the canon?
Now that I can’t answer! There’s are secrets about Music Meister that will be revealed during his appearance, and I don’t want to spoil them for you.
Really, the only things I can reveal is that his name is Alastor Sharpe, he comes from money, is incredibly charismatic, and does what he does because he’s painfully bored. He is a hedonist of the highest order, and does anything/one that appeals to him or makes him feel good.
He’s British, gorgeous, and INCREDIBLY eccentric.
I also have some AMAZING character designs that @ritzy-biscuit drew for me. If she’s cool with it, I think I’m ready to share them with you. I mean, you’ve HEARD him now, so you should be about ready to see him too.
Lance and Keith switching bayards but instead of the usual Lance getting the sword and Keith getting the blaster the bayard changes into their own specialty weapon but it changes it’s design by how the other sees them.
Keith holding the blue bayard and it changes it’s whole design into some tricked out fancy sword with beautiful designs at sharp angles decorated with engravings of flowers and gem like splatterings of small jewels that look like stardust going all along the blade like the sky they’re so used to seeing now.
Lance holding the red paladin’s bayard and it turns into an elegant rifle with beautiful swirls that look like the ocean waves with engravings of seashells and the sun. Swirling vines of flowers as pretty and as much of a beautiful blue as you can get going down the barrel of the rifle like it was made for it, like someone took the metal and melted it down and poured it in a mold.
Lucis is an advanced civilization, the crown city of Insomnia is
self sustaining and generally safe, but the limited land with which to build on can barely fit the growing population. You are an independent adult who had landed a dream job in the heart of the city, your parents bid you farewell from their farmhouse just east of Lestallum, and now you are living alone
in a very crowded, claustrophobic, and constantly noisy business district.
One day, you find an offer of comfort in your solitary life:
Model: NOCT-1.5 (limited number of units produced):
This model is the cutting-edge technology of all companions available in the market, the be-all end-all royalty of the trade. it is never advertised because very few people can afford it, but you’re a tech nerd and you’ve heard of the legends
It’s usually ridiculously expensive and waaaay out of your range, for some reason, this one is on sharp discount in your local computer shop
the clerk tells you it’s on a discount because it has been taken out of the box by a previous owner and returned, but is in top shape otherwise
it’s a small investment even after the price cut and you’re seriously trying to talk yourself out of it, but the more you look at the android behind the sheer plastic, the more you are entranced by the sharp features and slim design.
a part of you hungers to see what the eyes look like once turned on, and what kinds of apps and functions you can install on such a rare product
you take it home, and the moment you plug it- him in, bright piercing eyes glow red for three seconds, and then mellow out to a soft crystal blue
Keith and Lance have been able to switch and work with the other’s bayards for awhile now.
The team doesn’t know about it and for now they’re content with it, sort of their own secret, and it’s not like it’s anything serious so they don’t feel the need to tell anyone.
They really only switch bayards to see the pretty designs that appear on them.
Lance likes the engravings of the flowers going down the rifle since it reminds him of his mother’s flowers from the garden he used to help her with when he was younger. (If he looks closely he can see the exact flower with a petal picked off which reminds him of when he had accidentally torn a petal off his mom’s prize winning flower, after she had won of course)
Lance doesn’t notice the small red rose at the base of the rifle barrel that glows a pretty hue of red when he’s near Keith
Keith likes the stardust going down the blade in pretty colors, like small gems glittering in the light. He also likes tracing the designs on the hilt since the sharp angles of the design are deep enough that he can feel it and it soothes him.
He doesn’t notice the one blue star on the blade that glows the brightest when he’s near Lance.
They sometimes just look at each other’s bayards when they hold them, marveling at the designs and how the other’s would probably look if they all switched.
Unbeknownst to Keith and Lance they’re the only ones who are able to do this and smoothly to. It’s a rare thing to happen between paladins and is nearly unheard of in the history of Voltron.
Though like the oblivious boys they are they think it’s normal.
They don’t know the bayard designs are molded at how they see and perceive each other.
very nice boy! the gradients make it look a little earthly for a
satellite, but it’s okay, because i love how reflective his solar panels
are. 7.9/10 a good
keeping it simple today with some blue colors, very sleek solar panels,
with a dash of yellow. the curved edges make it look like a very chill
young bro. 8/10 very cute
giving us a spunky boy with Very sharp edges. a design that’s vaguely
reminiscent of a soyuz module, but not quite enough i can tell. 7/10 very good but a little pale.
not sure how i feel about this one. on the one hand, i love all
satellites, but this one has a cryptid feel to it. with its solar panels
facing the same way as the antenna, isn’t it just proadcasting directly
into the sun? i don’t know how i feel about that. also, facing towards
the sun when it shouldn’t have is how the mars global surveyor died, so i
have… negative feelings about this little buddy. 4/10 :/
simple, shiny, gets the idea across without too many clashy colors or ideas. sleek. i like it. 8.2/10
another simple sat, with a BIG thingy and SOLAR PANELS which are BLUE. stylized, but i like it. 7/10
WHY SO SIMPLIFIED? WHY SO STRIPEY?????????????? 0/10 NEEDS MORE LOVE
one’s hard to see against the white background, but it’s got a very
nice look and i love it. it’s got some dimension. it really pops. 17776/10 i love this child and i will hug it
