Okay, I’ll say it- I love Steven Universe! Considering the massive growth from this series-both comics and show- it’s no surprise how much people enjoy it. I remember watching the pilot and said, “Woah, this is new.” The designs alone from the pilot were strange to see on Cartoon Network, though they did have them changed to a more simple design. Not strange in a bad way, but strange to see such a complex design on a usually simplistic-style channel. Still, this series is phenomenal! It joins the progressive group of cartoons, fully accepting characters and giving reality-based views on relationships. The designs, both pilot and simple, are adorable.
Now you’re probably wondering why:
- Why are you blogging so late about this?
- Why is a show on a fashion blog?
Well, as I keep re-watching current episodes, I can’t help but notice the different styles and colors that go with everyone’s personality. I mean, each character has their own distinct color and costume, mostly connecting with their real life forms *ahem, the gems*. It’s one of the things I love about the show; seeing the different designs they come up with for gems as well as Steven and others, even squealing over the scenery and music that perfectly fit the situations.
My favorite part of this show is the fan base itself! Seriously, have you seen the fanart for it? The gemsonas, ships, fusions, or just re-draws are gorgeous! (Some of my favorites down below.)
Needles to say, I think the impact of designs for gems have influenced so many different kinds of artwork. The fan base is so much fun to see, and has so much potential to actually become a character in the show( I HOPE.) I’m honestly thinking of ways to incorporate such influence into my own creations, weather it be now or in the future.
That’s all I have for today, I hope you enjoy. And please, watch Steven Universe!
