basic redesigns pt 3 - the crystal temps! (sans connie) (part 1 | part 2)
left is the most recent in show palette for each character; right is how i’d personally choose to recolor them!
as much as i love the really beautiful speckled lapis redesigns ive seen, i figured that only a few freckles would rly be feasible if we’re considering the fact that these characters are made to be animated
still, i did try overall to make her look more like her gemstone, including nods to the common pyrite and calcite inclusions real lapis stones tend to have!
peridot is pretty simple; i just altered her to be less neon green and closer to the olive toned green of a real peridot gemstone!
Sin worthy double chocolate chip cookie recipe for those interested 😈
2 cups. All purpose flour
1 + ¼ cup. Cocoa powder
2 tsp. Baking soda
½ tsp. Salt
1 cup. Butter
1 cup. White sugar
1 cup. Brown sugar (I used demerara)
2 tsp. Vanilla extract
¼ cup. Milk (bonus, if it’s chocolate)
2 eggs, room temp*
1 cup (or more). Chocolate Chips, any kind you like. I used dark chocolate.
Pre heat oven to 350 degrees F.
You’ll need 1 medium bowl and 1 large bowl.
Put the “Dry” ingredients in the smaller bowl, whisk together and set aside.
Put the “Wet” ingredients in the bigger bowl. Cream the butter and sugar once mixed thoroughly combine, add the other “wet” ingredients (in the order listed) mixing inbetween :)
Pour the “dry” mix into the “wet” mix bowl a little at a time. Then add the chocolate chips. Try not to over mix, a little bit of powder won’t hurt :)
Line a baking tray with parchment paper (or however you prefer). I make smaller cookies, so I use a little more than a tbsp worth of dough per cookie and I can fit a dozen per tray. Just take a spoon and drop the dough on…try to keep the dough away from your mouth…or you might not have any left for cookies…
Bake @350 degrees F for 15 min** and let rest on the tray for 5 min before devouri…I mean removing from tray.
(* Protip: if your like me and just took the eggs out of the fridge rn. Sit them in a bowl of warm water while you prep the rest of the mixtures. They’ll be warm by the time you need them.)
(**Protip: since oven temps can vary, a good way to tell if your cookies are ready (around he 12 min mark) is to poke the cookie (be careful, it’s hot in there) if the dough sinks in and doesn’t come back up the cookies need more time.
