#corrupted steven universe

Art challenge entry for @ovinetanuki! The songs used were “Monster” by Skillet and “Here Comes a Thought”!
I ramble about my thought process below if that’s something you’d be interested in. If not, enjoy the glowy effects lol
So, I chose “Monster” first before I did anything else. The general idea for this piece was that it was a half-corrupted Steven in his own mindscape, surrounded by intrusive thoughts, while his fully-corrupted self loomed in the background. For the most part, that still stands.
However, it’s a bit different now. I guess this suggests that he’s corrupting a second time, with the threat of what happened last time just. In the background. But you don’t have to see it that way if you don’t want.
You can see, below the word “MONSTER”, is a bunch of things. They got a little lost in the final product, but I think that kinda adds to it. There’s a set of chains, open and broken, to symbolize the “monster” breaking free, like the lyrics of the song suggest. There’s also blood and two shattered gems, representing his fear of what COULD happen. It’s an intrusive thought, just as the lyrics “But it was just a Thought” represent, hidden down there with all the other things.
I went with lineless (because I like suffering apparently), and although I was planning on doing this super detailed, I think the more abstract approach suits the message of the piece more. It’s not heavily detailed and shaded > it’s not realistic > it’s not real. It’s just a thought.
That’s about all the thought that went into this. Anything else was done purely because I thought it looked cool lmao.
Oh, side note: the inside of Steven’s jacket is a deep blue with stars! It matched the irl counterpart rather than how it usually looks in the show lol. I like this design better XD

I’ve done stuff

Yep, another corrupted worm... what else do you want from me?
(I did use The Minecraft Image Converter (m), but I didn’t really follow the guidelines all the way through... not to mention the insane amount of abuse of stained glass)
Without stained glass layer:

If I’m gonna be honest, I prefer doing the 3D Minecraft build over the 2D. While it can be a lot more time consuming, it doesn’t involve eyestrain and exact detail precision.
This actually took me three attempts, the two times of having to restart are because of something stupid.
1st attempt: (I had to restart it for four(ish) reasons: One, it was way too big with the total height being above y=250, which I could never handle. Two, I was dumb and used plain ice (which is see through) instead of packed ice. Three, I accidentally tried for the newest updates blocks, which I don’t have, and it was really throwing me off, trying to find replacement blocks. Four, I lost the original screenshot/picture and I couldn’t get it back.)
Tumblr media
2nd attempt: (Had to restart since I lost the original photo and couldn’t get it back.)

With how SU future’s been going so far, I thought it’d be fitting to reframe this old quote from the movie --> Steven’s mental state/ possible corruption! 
(I’m still working on understanding how heckin’ shadows work so please excuse the lack of proper physics lol
P.S: Feel free to reblog! But do refrain from reposting :) )

OMG IS THIS A NEW LEAK?! (When Pearl first speaks it’s “HOW” not “WHAT”, my bad there) I found this audio from @stevenuniverse.out.of.context on instagram. And I decided to put their conversation with letters because it might help people understand better what’s going on! But oh boy, I think Steven is no longer far from his corruption…

So err, this background has always bugged me
Tumblr media
because the space doesn't resemble the franchise's normal way of drawing space
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
but I was just rewatching mindful education and
Tumblr media
the backgrounds dont match 100%, but they are in the style, and throughout the episode that backgrounds vary anyway
Tumblr media

If the backgrounds were meant to be in the same style, this has connections to the Corrupted Steven Theory and Steven's deteriorating mental health considering Mindful Education was centered on being emotionally healthy and problems overwhelming them.
:)
What do you guys think? I'm too tired to make anything worthwhile. Might be nothing but I'm a Steven Universe theorist so I'm bound to make big deals about tiny things.

Tried some screenshot redraws (I guess it's more edit? IDK) for Reverse Monster Buddies! It was kinda a bit more difficult trying to insert neph where Steven is because they're just so different in height, body type and so on.
But I had fun doing them! I like editing the backgrounds the most

Ohohoho
It's all coming together now.
With the release of today's promo there was one scene that got me thinking which was this one
Tumblr media
Now why would Steven's clothes be ripped like that? If it were from damage from a fight or from falling down something then the rips would be random but they're not. They're specifically around his arms, legs and chest as if they've been stretched somehow.
But wait. If Steven's been corrupted then why is he normal-ish here? The answer lies back in the episode 'gem hunt' where steven and connie go looking for a corrupted gem in the forest.
Tumblr media
This was where steven explained what he thought of corrupted gems at the time; how it was as if they were so sick that they couldn't remember who they used to be. Then they run into a mixture of monster and humanoid tracks which leads steven to make this assumption:
Tumblr media
Steven: "...there might be a conscious gem still inside there somewhere."
Connie: "Is that possible?"
Steven: "What if the monster is turning back and forth into it's original form? If it is, it might not be as corrupted as we think! There might still be a chance to save it!"
Connie: "How?"
Tumblr media
Steven: "I can't heal gems that are corrupted, at least not all the way but, if its half corrupted..."
Half corrupted.... like how steven is only half gem...which makes it wholly possible that he would switch back and forth while he struggles with his emotionally charged powers.
And dont get me started on this scene where steven runs into the house covering his hand in his pocket.
Tumblr media
In arguments against corrupted steven, people have been saying "oh he probably hurt his hand from punching that wall in the previous scene" or "his hand probably turned pink" to which my response is that if he bust his hand from hitting that wall he could practically kiss it to make it better. And as for it turning pink, the gems have already witnessed his pink mode so what else would he have to hide???

REVERSE MONSTER BUDDIES AU!!
I've had this idea lingering in my head ever since the SUF finale and I finally sketched it out.
Now, the specifics are still getting ironed out in my head, but in the refs is what is concrete as of now in terms of plot.
Basically take Monster Buddies but flip it and Nephrite gets to keep Kai instead of bubbling her again.
Kai is called she/her because the Gems think Kai is like every other gem.
Kai is still half human.
Neph is full gem.
Greg is around.
Rose is gone.
I hope you like this! Feel free to ask me about it some more if you want to know more.
