Feeling Important by Bakuel Feeling Important by Bakuel

Everyone should get to feel important at least a few times in their life.

This should have been posted yesterday but it has been a frantic week, so I'm posting it today instead.
Since Garnet liked Steven's birthday suit in "So Many Birthdays", I just took that concept and dialed it up a few notches. The environment itself is a mock up of the Royal Throne in the House of Lord's Chamber in Westminster. The very long royal cape comes from old British royal capes like this cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0895… . Ridiculously long royal capes are ridiculous. I can't help but wonder how heavy those things were.

I like Garnet.

Hello! I don't mean to bother, but I find this piece of art very creative and think it would be perfect to repost on a Facebook page I help run. It is called the 'Crystal Gems' and we are non-profit. We just like to repost peoples art (with credit of course) so they can spread their art to a wider audience. But, if you do not want this piece reposted, that's fine! Just let me know and it will not be posted. If you do want your art posted, feel free to reply to this comment with any other links. Though, the links you provide have to be related to the art in some way (i.e: not just a regular blog on Tumblr., but one dedicated to your art). Links that we accept are deviantart, tumblr, Facebook pages, redbubble, and instagram. If your link has a lot of NSFW art, please let me know so I can mark it as such! 

If you would like to check out the page, here's the link:

I hope you have a great day!

Thank you for the kind words! Sorry for the late reply I was out of town for a bit.

I usually don't mind when people re-post my fan art, as long as they give me credit and link back to the original source it's all good. I would actually be honored if you reposted my art on your facebook page! :D

This is amazing! You should try drawing her on the "Iron Thrown" from "Game of Thrown's"

I'll probably get to Jasper one day, I am *slow* with art though, so it'll probably be some time. But it will defiantly happen, I like Jasper.

Garnet is considered the Empress Arcana in Steven's life.

It does look like it would make a good Empress card doesn't it? And Garnet does fit the role.

If I had the time and willpower I would try my hand at a Steven Universe Major Arcana deck. Maybe one day.

The composition of this piece is wonderful! I feel like you combined the cartoony style of Garnet's design and the realistic background elements really well!

 I spent a long time on the composition, I always find it very hard to make front views interesting.

Garnet should feel important every day :D 

hm, never thought of how heavy those long capes must have been, only how ridiculously long they were

Everyday should be Garnet appreciation day!

Not only the weight but the friction between such a long fur cape and the carpet on the floor must have been large enough to pull the cape taut if they didn't have any help and were forced to just drag it behind them. It must of looked wonderfully loony!

You think they had gnomes under those huge capes?...

Great now I have an image in my head of the old Queen trotting along with gnomes underneath the tail of her cape and I'm grinning like an idiot at work. Now people will think I'm even more insane.

Is this based on something from an episode?

It's based off of "So Many Birthdays" and how Garnet liked Steven's birthday suit. Since she liked the crown and cape so much I just dialed it up a few notches. The environment itself is a mock up of the Royal Throne in the House of Lord's Chamber in Westminster. The ridiculous royal cape comes from old British royal capes like this cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0895… .

That's correct, just taking the basic idea and dialing it up.

Thank ya kindly! It was a challenge working with so much warm gold and red, so I went ahead and put both cool shadows and light in the scene. It was a bit experimental but I'm happy it turned out ok!
