Why this piece is awesome: A very tiny Onion looks out over a vast seascape as he waits on the pier for his dad. I love the coloring and linework in this. It feels like a children's storybook illustration with a touch of Hokusai.

Artist Website/Gallery: [tumblr.com profile] janematwain

Why this piece is awesome: This is a series of garden-themed pictures that so far includes Pearl, Amethyst, Steven, Peridot, Lapis, and Connie. I love the concept, the colors, and the wealth of detail in each of these — Lapis's picture even has water dripping out of the bottoms of the pots. There's some great characterization (Amethyst's version of a "garden" made me laugh). My favorite is Peridot's, which makes wonderful use of light and captures Peridot's nervousness about being able to take proper care of all these tiny Earth life forms.

Why this piece is awesome: Steven's loneliness and fear are palpable here as he floats, stranded, in space. The starry backdrop is lovely and fits really well with the art style of the show.

Why this piece is awesome: Pearl and the Mystery Girl chat on the phone in a mostly still picture accented with small animated elements. I love the likenesses and bright colors, and the animation really kicks things up a notch, heightening the sense of connection and emotion.

Why this piece is awesome: This picture does such a great job of capturing Pearl's determination through her face and posture as she squares off against an unseen opponent. The background landscape of smoke and debris and the diagonal streaks in the sky amp up the dramatic impact.

Why this piece is awesome: This is a colorful depiction of Peridot as Connie's math tutor. I love the characterization in this piece — it makes perfect sense that Connie would be eager to absorb alien knowledge (or eighth-grade math, as the case may be), and Peridot is in her element when she gets to be the technical expert.

Why this piece is awesome: [tumblr.com profile] mrdraklin starts with the familiar Art Deco representations of the Diamonds and brings them to life through animation. Each portrait blossoms out of nothingness and returns to nothingness again. I especially love the use of planetary orbits. Aside from the beauty of the unfolding geometry, there are wonderful little details that add characterization, like Pink's hand slipping away from the Earth and Yellow's ominous turn toward the viewer.

Why this piece is awesome: Here's a portrait of Our Hero to finish off the month. This piece was posted during Season 1, when Steven's life was a good deal simpler than it's since become. There's a hint of idyllic childhood in the quiet seaside setting, the cheeseburger backpack, and how small Steven looks next to his ukulele — but at the same time, his pose and the windblown landscape create a sense of standing guard and gazing out toward the future.
