does everyone is gay? yes. yes everyone is gay.
happy pride, everyone! honestly what other piece of media could this song be animatic-ed to, on this channel no less
1. "not everyone is su is gay!" look up the lyrics to the song, partner. it's not literally claiming everyone is gay, just that lgbt people exist and deserve to be happy. just let gay folks enjoy the representation they get
2. "why didn't you add (character/pairing)?" it's a two minute song. sometimes you have to prioritize. also i know i have biases toward certain ones but i made sure to make it about more than just what i prefer.
2.5. "where are yellow and blue diamond???" on homeworld, duh
3. now that those are out of the way, whew! i've had this animatic planned for a long, long time, and only once june rolled around did i decide to actually draw it out. i consider this both a fun little storyboard as well as a tribute to a show that has a special place in my heart, hence why i included as many elements as possible.
4. the little montage sections ("'cause we're all somewhere in the middle!") are intended to be people celebrating pride. interpret the humans as you will. the gems are definitely lesbians though
5. this animatic was made post 'a single pale rose' + a ton of leaks, so you'll notice that in pearl's flashback, rose has pearl's gem. also bismuth has her newer design. everything was fully intentional :D
6. while i'm loving the love from everyone, i'm really disappointed at the handful of y'all who'd rather focus on yelling 'lapidot is better!' and 'amedot sucks!' in the comments. i've always been clear that i respect lapidot but i personally prefer amedot. i'm not going to be mean about it. just please, limit the negativity. be mature.
thanks for 143k! while it's a lot of fun making big musical animatics such as this one, it takes enormous work and stops me from making other art in the process. so from now on, i'll try to upload small animatics (or big animatics with long gaps) with speedpaints in between. if you're expecting a heathers renaissance, you might just want to stick with the older stuff.
