Just a little Steven Universe doodle. Some silly teenagers got really offended over this character concept by Lamar Abrams, a storyboarder on the show, to the point where the creators felt forced to erase the character out of existence. Well, here’s my part in making sure that jerks who harass content creators for anything they can twist into appearing “problematic” don’t have their way. I happen to think this is a pretty cool design. Lamar Abrams is himself a black man, and if anything, what’s truly racist is saying that black-coded characters aren’t allowed to have light lips because “that offends me”. As for the part where she can’t read, my drawing says it all - what would a gem need reading for anyway?
WE LOVE YOUR BAT DRAWINGS! The vampire bat kills me. Thanks for making it! Cute drawings like that help dispel myths about those little dudes. They're so silly. -- Sarah
