White Diamond by SusieBeeca White Diamond by SusieBeeca
This started with a basic lighting/shading practice, and... kind of took on a life of its own! Input and crits are welcome ;)



Tumblr link! Warning, though: the rest of my tumblr is NSFW.

She's probably the true vilain to all this. When yellow and blue refuse, she'll step in and take them on full force!

this is magnificent in the sense that it reminds me of Fritz lang. 

White diamond in this takes on a mythical quality. That being more than a cosmic dictator, she is in fact a cosmic being unto herself, no different from Shiva or the mother Goddess isis. 

In this sense, she has many strong feminine features, such as her lashes and soft nose and mouth. 

But there's a darkness that took me a few minutes to locate. There's a blackness crawling up her, not just the absense of light but a devouring thing, a corrupting thing. 

We . . . know next to nothing about her, and while I as a writer tried to turn her into something mundane and earthly, you did the opposite and succeeded like a pro

Oh, thank you so much! Your comments are always such a joy :D I'm intrigued by your mention of the black tendrils as "not just an absence of light", since that part was something I debated including, but decided to keep in for reasons that were probably subconscious on my part. I'm going to have to try watching Metropolis now! My brother loved it, but I didn't see more than ten or twenty minutes.

I do love your work always :) 

And when it comes to art or fiction, my mindset is always "how can I drag that through the mud?" 

In this case, I'm always reminded of how Diamonds are made of the same stuff as coal. So in my head canon, I always associate Diamonds in STeven Universe with filthy, petrochemical smells and scents. I like the idea of these immaculate space goddesses stinking like an old gas station and sneezing up coal dust. They can never escape their base origins. 

But I do recomend Metropolis and the works of fritz lang. If you can ignore the low level sexism, it's some pretty amazing cinema.
