Emerald Pearl - Steven Universe by BethanyAngelstar Emerald Pearl - Steven Universe by BethanyAngelstar
This was done over a stream (apparently two, because of connection issues). Check it out here! -->…

I LOVE Steven Universe. The gems are so personal and express different sides of us, especially when you look at the fusions. I couldn't help but make a couple characters for my own enjoyment. I have two gems with a fusion together, so I'll be designing those in my spare time. This particular one I did on stream, and I had a lot of fun (even if I only had one person watching the stream! Haha!). I promised I'd share the end results, and this is Emerald Pearl. 

Emerald Pearl isn't a special pearl, though she does belong to a Sapphire from one of the other worlds. Her name comes from the Emerald colouring she has, especially in her eyes. She was made only to pose, sing, and be a decoration for her Sapphire. Emerald Pearl wishes for more, though she is afraid of taking what she believes she does not deserve which includes positive attention. Little mistakes mean big consequences in her own mind. If and when she makes mistakes, she instantly shuts down, becomes quiet, and hates herself...for she, in her mind, has failed her duties. 

Emerald Pearl will later find a special gem that will show her how valuable she truly is, that she is worth someone's attention and time. 

She and the other gem I'm still working on represent parts of me that I haven't been able to express. Emerald Pearl's subservient attitude comes from how she had been treated only like something to brag about and show off. I felt the same way many times in my life, and I can't help but feel like I just want to scoop up this Pearl and hug her. :cheerup: I MUST PROTECT MY BABY PEARL!

Steven Universe is originally created by Rebecca Sugar. This OC is simply for fun and expression. :)
