It’s interesting to me how Steven Universe porn makes up a huge portion of my personal consumption, but a fairly small portion of the art I make. A lot of my go-to series are like that, maybe there’s a reason for it. Regardless, I do want to do more with the characters, and Lapidot content is something I’m happy to finally cross off my list. Both Lapis and Peridot got delayed debuts due to something I think I’ve discussed before, but I’ll tell the story again here. In 2015 I drew Lapis and Peridot in a sixty-nine type pic, though it was a backburner project that was slow on getting inked/colored. While it sat on the backburner, Peridot made her face turn and lost her robotic prosthetics, revealing she’s actually rather small. Since I didn’t know this when I drew the original pic, I got a weird feeling about it and basically dropped it, but that caused me to also never gain the motivation to do a new Lapis/Peridot pic, even when they became more or less canon in the show itself. So, now that we’re eight years later, I’m happy to do at least one pic with the two of them, although I’d be happy to do more if I can find the time.
So, due to a few inconvenient elements coming together, I ended up burning through a lot of my pre-work that I rely on to keep my upload schedule. As a result, I’m planning to focus on a handful of simple, smaller pics I’ve got lying around. They’re mostly just girls I like showing off their ass and/or feet, but I think some of my audience is into that so hopefully it won’t be an issue. This Peridot pic predates her First Shoot debut, it’s one of those older attempts to do a drawing of her I never got around to inking or coloring. Working with her recently got me in the mood to pick this back up, though, so here she is!
Here’s the last of the three First Shoot debuts that tied in our second poll! Peridot was one I was personally rooting for, but didn’t expect to do well. Of the main five gems in Steven Universe, she’s the only one I’d never drawn, though not for a lack of trying. I actually drew Peridot with Lapis back when she first appeared in the series (during the period where Lapis was her prisoner). While I had that pic in my drafts, they revealed that her arms and legs had extensions on them and she was actually short, and that kinda made my pic feel dated so I dropped it. I tried drawing her with Lapis a few more times since then, but the pics just never came together for one reason or another. So here she is now, in all her glory, paired with Kai from The Legend of Korra. This is Kai’s first appearance in color, as I’ve only drawn him in an old lineart commission before now.
