Aquamarine (Steven Universe OC)
Yeah, yeah, everybody's done this one.  :P But I felt like redrawing one of the gems I had to make up on the fly for my Birthstone Gems in my own style.  I really like how the lighting and colours came out on this, and that sunrise?  Yeah, I didn't just grab a gradient from somewhere. That was done by me.  In Paint.  :)

Anyway.  Aquamarines, in the headcanon I made up while drawing this, are (of course) ocean gems--how can you NOT, when their name literally means "water" and "ocean".  But unlike Lapises, who use their manipulation of water to terraform (and fight), Aquamarines are DEEP underwater gems, and rarely see the surface.  They build and maintain the resource extraction facilities on the ocean floor--because not all the "good stuff" of a planet's crust is under DRY land!  (I mean, come on.  Do you honestly think Homeworld could see just HOW much of the Earth's surface is water and _not_ figure out some way to exploit that part too?  Same for other planets with oceans.)

As such, they tend to be compactly built (5'-5'6" usually) and fairly muscular, and while Gems never need to breathe anyway, Aquamarines are specially built to withstand the pressures under the ocean.  (And see in the dark--which I'm not sure is a standard Gem ability or not.)  Specifically, they are programmed to _move_ with the amount of force needed to push against the ocean pressure as if it was just normal air to them, so they don't slow down in their work.  The downside of this is, on the rare occasions they DO come to the surface, they tend to make way too big of gestures and trip over things because of taking way too big steps--it takes them a while to mentally...calibrate themselves to the surface.

This MEANS, that this ocean goddess, rising elegantly from the waves like unto Botticelli's Venus...
...is actually a big ol' dork who might whack you in the face by accident while talking.  :P

Aqumarines aren't made in bulk as their jobs usually only need one, full-time, worker in a fairly large area, and said work rarely requires them to go on land, so they tend to come across as "that weird old sailor dude" when they _do_ come to the surface.  It gets BORING down there, so they tend to take up odd obscure hobbies, decorate themselves with bits of whatever they can find in sunken/abandoned man-made facilities (shipwrecks and old oil rigs, etc.)--and while their normal outfits tend to be either full-body and streamlined or minimalist, both to avoid drag (so...basically diving suits or bikinis), they also sometimes copy the fashions of the only other gems they usually come into contact with--Pearls.

Yes, it makes sense that Pearls would be made underwater, and...wait...did I just make up underwater kindergartens? (As probably many other fans did before me, let's be honest?) Huh.  Well why not? like I said, a LOT of the Earth's crust is underwater and you wouldn't want to waste all that part.  The raw materials for making Pearls _are_ plentiful down there, as, after all, that's where normal pearls come from.  Our Aqumarine here is stationed on Earth, so she wouldn't've made _our_ Pearl--and none were made on Earth at all, as that's a luxury "item" you start producing AFTER a colony is good and established--which of course never quite happened. 

Speaking of, during the Gem war, no Aquamarines actively joined either side...but those who agreed with the Crystal Gems' cause (once they found out about it) kind of _quietly_ showed their sympathy towards the native Earth creatures by rescuing them whenever they saw one drowning within range.  This gets them the nickname of "Lifeguard Gems" by some...but since Aquamarines often change their form to a fishtail from the waist down so they can move about faster in water without losing the use of their hands, the primitive people they were rescuing had a different name: 
Mermaids.  ;)

ABILITIES:  Well, the under-pressure-movement and dark sight stuff, also many Aquamarines have either markings for underwater camoflage, "bio"luminescence spots that they can turn on and off at will, and of course they can shapeshift . BUT, since one can only change into something one is familiar with, they really specialise only in sea creatures.  Put this chick here on land, tell her to copy a horse and she'll totally screw it up. 

And that's my overly-long explanation of something that's a fan character so you probably don't even care anyway, as you have your OWN fan interpretations of things.  If you _did_ read this far, I salute you!  :)

MAN what an awful year. And I still can't believe we're already into the FOURTH month of 2017!  Is it just me or are the year-numbers getting freakier and freakier sounding...?

At any rate:  Hey all!  I'm not dead!  Kinda.  As you can see, I've gotten into Steven Universe lately, as well as Don't Starve and a couple other things.  Not drawing as much as I used to in the day but things do seem to be getting a little better!  Let's hope this continues..

The...OTHER Birthstone Gems!
Because some months are just that needy.  :P  Don't like your birthstone all that much?  Well, possible good news--if you were born in March, June, October, November or December, you have choices!  There are the older, more traditional gems, and then the newer ones that...were probably added by the jewelry companies to sell more stuff, let's be honest.  BUT HEY! The more the merrier, right?

All of these are my own designs except of course Alexandrite (scariest birthstone ever!) Notes:
1.  Why, yes, I _did_ make Bloodstone's hair kinda sorta a little bit like Renaldo's.  Huh.
2.  Moonstone is a popular name for the fan-fusion of Pearl and Lapis Lazuli, so notice the build and hairstyle.
3.  The role of Innocent Fanservice Girl will be filled tonight by Pink Tourmaline.  Take a bow, my dear.
4.  Tanzanite is apparently a PIRATE!  ARR, ME MATEY!
5.  And my favourites are probably the down-to-earth, practical-looking little Citrine (I imagine her as kind of an engineeer type, like Peridot) and Blue Zircon, who turned out SO...PRETTY...  (And anime.  Very very anime).

I've saved all of these guys seperately before kind of lapping them over each other (so you can see the full outfits better and such) and will upload them if anyone wants.  Especially Diamond (in the first birthstones picture) and Alexandrite, who REALLY got covered up (which is a shame as she was easily the hardest one to do)!  And maybe at some point I'll redraw them in different poses or something.

(Made, like the other one, with the Gemsona Maker at Doll Divine and some liberal use of drag-and-drops.)

~WE...are the birthstone gems...!~
Birthstones, Steven Universe style!  (I'm sure lots of others have done this, but this one is mine.  :P)  Diamond is vaguely based off of the silhoutette of White Diamond in that mural, and in case you can't tell, she's actually taller than she looks here because the picture barely even reaches past her knees.  (Still short for a Diamond, but--well, I had to fit her into the picture SOMEhow!)  I guess the others are on a platform in front of her...?

I started off trying to make each one holding/wearing something kinda representing that month, so Garnet has a noisemaker ("Happy New Year.  Yay."), Amethyst is all hearts and flirts, Aquamarine is wearing a little stylised shamrock made of jewels in her hair, (there is NO WAY I was gonna get a _Diamond_ to wear bunny ears), Emerald has flowers and ribbons ala Mayday/May-poles, Pearl has a bouquet as if maybe she caught it after a wedding, and...then I completely forgot about that for the rest of them.  It's probably just as well--I have no idea HOW the hell I was gonna make Opal look Halloweeny while still looking like Opal.  :P
Aquamarine, Diamond, Emerald, Topaz and Turquoise are my own designs.  Yay!  And I think my favourite part of this was trying to give everybody individual looking personalities by expressions and/or gestures.  :)  Amethyst, Pearl, and Peridot are all wearing...kind of _bits_ of their different looks mashed together. Because fun.

Which one are you?  :)  (I'm an Opal.  Which is a fusion, so I'm...kind of mixed up?  Heh.)

EDIT:  And, for anybody out there going "But wait!  Some months have more than one birthstone!"...gotcha covered!  ;)

(Made with the Steven Universe Gemsona Maker at Doll Divine.)

Seasons Change--Starving is Forever
What's this?  More actual artwork from me?  GASP!  Anyway, what started off as a little sketch of the "Don't Starve" universe turned into a massive four-part poster that I had to shrink to get it to fit properly on my screen!  (I have an oldschool screen.  :P

I like how it turned out, though.  Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter, all with the colours and lighting they have in game, all full of season-specific details, each one its own individual piece that can stand on its own.  I worked pretty hard on this and I hope you can tell.  :)

(Notes:  The cracked ground in the "summer" picture is a sinkhole from the Antlion--currently only on the "A New Reign" beta branch--and the shadow looming over Wigfrid is TOTALLY the Deerclops.  Of course.)

I am a geek and proud of it. Age? Old enough to know better, young enough not to care (which will still be true even when I'm 100). I have way too many pop-culture interests, from superherhoes to silent movies, from Disney to dragons, from board games to British humour. I am a rabid MSTie, Trekkie, Babylon Fiver, Whovian and many more. I like at least bits of almost any kind of music I've heard, love random trivia, still like cartoons even though I'm an adult, am a Marvel AND a DC, and I snark because I am.
