My favorite gem from Steven Universe, Peridot. I should just draw Peridot forever, honestly.

This one posed some interesting challenges but I think I was able to work through it. The lighting, for example, had me a bit out of my comfort zone. And don't even get me started on that damn visor. Transparent but also a light source while also being reflective... like, what is actually going on. But I'll do it. Do it for her.

Thoughts?

I think she's just annoyed. And maybe I'll draw Lapis at some point, I'm certainly not opposed to it.

Aaaah it has been probably since the day you posted this (from what I see from the pictures details) that I have it as my phone lockscreen, and I finally found your gallery ~

Just wanted to say that this picture is amazing. She just looks so awesome here well she's already awesome but here she's even better.
I mean, the colors, the light effects, shading, textures (AND THIS DAMN POSE <3), ect...I just love this. You just did an amazing job here.

(And yeah after this comment I don't think I need to precise Peridot is my favorite gem, idk i live everything about this character and I guess I'll probably join you in the "forever drawing peridot" crew)

Nice! I've never watched Steven Universe before, but I can see why you like her design so much.

I think the visor looks good. It looks like it's reflective, transparent and a light source, like you said. I don't know how bright it should be, but if it should just be a dim glow it's perfect. Lighting looks good, although I wonder whether soft shading would be better on her forearms or not. Also, if the light source is coming from below, I think there should still be a bit of light going up her right elbow and upper arm.

Those are my thoughts! All in all though, the atmosphere is amazing and the colors are great, anatomy too!

Thank you!

Then I'm glad I succeeded with the visor, it was definitely the hardest part to color. As for the lighting on the arms I think you may be right. For the the light going up the right arm, I did struggle with how that should be lit. Arms in general have just been tripping me up lately. So many muscles (many of which don't have to be drawn anyways) and the form is just so hard to get down.

Also, not saying you should watch Steven Universe, but, yknow, it's really good. And it's very inspiring for art, in my opinion.
