Took forever, but I finally finished Moon’s completely revamped character reference sheet! I can’t believe she’s already three years old…she’s grown so much since I first drew her as the unofficial Gemsona-HQ mascot. It’s definitely an ego boost to see how much my art’s improved when comparing this to her old ref sheet. (Please full-view, and please don’t repost / pin)
A quick introduction to Moon for those who don’t know her (and for those who haven’t seen her in a while): she’s not much of a talker; she likes listening and observing before speaking or taking action. Moon’s huge fan of the Lunar Sea Spire, exploration, and sweet bread, but she’s not so big on unnecessary violence or hostility. She typically tries to avoid fights if she can, but she’ll always try to step in if someone needs her help. What she lacks in physical strength she makes up for in skill- Moon can manipulate gravity! She relies almost exclusively on this ability in-battle, often making her crescent chakram ’orbit’ her during a fight so enemies can’t get too close. Because of her unique ability, Moon was assigned to a Gem-controlled / neutral planet with Star Sunstone to assist with tasks like Kindergarten growth and exploration. She spent long periods of time away from Homeworld, so she had more room to form her own beliefs and values than other Gems living under the strict rule of their home-planet. Moon managed to keep her freedom and remain more or less neutral longer than most Gems during the Rebellion thanks to her cautious and patient nature, but at a price. Her eventual desertion of the Homeworld was pretty rough.
Just to be clear- Moon doesn’t have two gemstones, she has two halves of a whole Rainbow Moonstone gem! Her physical form is split between them.
