::Frustration:: by Camriko ::Frustration:: by Camriko
And, oh, you're losing sight, you're losing touch
All these little things seem to matter so much
That they confuse you
That I might lose you


The second to last Steven Universe episode "Mindful Education" had me in big, sloppy tears during the song "Here Comes a Thought." I especially loved the look of overwhelming emotion and frustration on Ruby's face... Her expression/body language is what inspired this picture of Timon.

I find that Ruby and Sapphire as a couple and their relationship dynamic remind me a LOT of Timon and Mya. Especially with how they handle their internal issues. 

Geez, SU seems to give me more inspiration than anything else, lately. 

Sorry for not being as active. I've been really busy. School and responsibilities, ya know? We can't all live the Hakuna Matata life, as I much as I wish we could. ;P

Super impressive expression work here, the depiction of frustration is spot-on and tells more than a thousand words. Keep it up!

Wow! You're a Timon/TLK meerkat AND a Steven Universe fan? Cool!

I love this picture. Timon is frustrated by what...?

Yes, I am a huge fan of Steven Universe!! <3 

And I'm not sure exactly what he is frustrated by... Probably something small that he shouldn't worry about so much. ^.^

That steven universe episode was so beautiful. I can't get over that powerful song! It makes me cry inside, because of the message and how it relates to a lot of people. This has more meaning than most top chart pop songs!

I loved that episode! I was on the verge of tears as well :( I thought about my boyfriend throughout the whole song, and we're long distance so it makes it even more meaningful, especially the part "I'm here" :sad: :criesthrust: 

great work on this :heart:

Thank you so much! And I honestly thought of myself with my boyfriend, as well, although we aren't long distance. I'm a lot like Ruby in the relationship, letting little things absolutely destroy me, while my bf is like Sapphire in that he bottles things up and suffers silently... But we work together to balance it out and tell each other "I'm here." :)

I'm the exact same way with my boyfriend. I'm literally ruby and he's like sapphire. It's awesome how we can relate :)

I really don't know why more people aren't talking about Ruby's face in that one scene, it was honestly just really powerful.

I know, right?! Her facial expressions really, really got to me. That was some damn good emotional animating.

I definitely plan on watching it, it seems to remind me of anime like Hunter x Hunter.

The show's creator was influenced a lot by anime! :)

Yeah, I heard that there are a bunch of references to anime in the show and I adore anime! Well by my profile pic, it's quite obvious...
