Sunstones and Boulder Opals (gemsona) by JimPAVLICA Sunstones and Boulder Opals (gemsona) by JimPAVLICA

Anon on my gemsona blog wanted to see some more designs of Boulder Opals and Sunstones in “my canon”, so here they are! <:

Sunstones are guards for places that are generally peaceful, as well as distanced from livelier parts of gem society.

Boulder Opals are muralists who plan, design and paint the massive geometric murals that decorate gem architecture.


PS; This is probably an unnecessary note, but these are not up for adoption.

I really love these, especially how they all (besides Boulder and Sunny of course,) can be interpreted as more feminine.

So you might have been asked this already, but if you had a canon for Moonstones for their appearance or what they do, what would it be? :3 I've always imagined them as dancers of sorts, because moonstones are very beautiful gemstones, and I imagine them to be thing and graceful, like a mixture of pearls and lapis lazuli.

I thought of some cute nicknames for the Boulder Opals.

(left to right) River, Bob and Shoulder Opal.

boulder opals generally don't form squads.

Ohh these are super amazing! I adore these designs haha, and I especially love how different Sunny and Boulder look from the other gems, they look super unique and its wonderful! The sunstone designs also look really awesome, they remind me of clothing from a culture I just cant quite remember the name of, but its really neat! And all the other boulder opals look so prim and proper haha, while Boulders baggy clothes definitely make him recognizable out of the bunch! Amazing job! :D

These designs are so beautiful. I noticed that everyone looks so calm or happy and then we see Boulder. It just made me laugh for some reason.

I really like how you can see how Boulder and Sunny have broken away from their counterparts as they've developed. Like, what they were made to be is still pretty recognizable, but who they've chosen to be is what ultimately dominates. :D

The shared tooth gap between the Boulder Opals is a nice touch. ;)

also, this is kinda random, but did boulder or sunny ever have any trouble with feelings of loyalty towards their diamond/homeworld once they decided to join the rebels? (like peridot in gem drill)
Reply
:iconjimpavlica:
JimPAVLICA Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2017  Professional Digital Artist
no; boulder not because he was always a defect and disconnected from homeworld, and sunny not because he's quick to shift his loyalty if he finds it fit.
that's not to say sunny isn't loyal; he just thought that the rebels have a much better cause (and allowed his and boulder's friendship!), and all things considered, he found the rebels to be a much better group to lay his loyalties with - but his stronger loyalty is with boulder.

So, I noticed that the other boulder opals seem to be much more feminine than your own. Is this simply because you had your sona change and be masculine, or is there a deeper meaning behind this? Either way, I find it intriguing and I think they are all beautifully designed.

JinxIsJinxed Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2017  New Deviant Hobbyist Digital Artist
I really respect that you have some evidence as to why your characters are masculine. Many people have no reasoning other than that's just how they wanted their OC to look. Kudos to you!

I love how the Sunstones look like they are from the desert, it makes them look very cultural!
(Sunny still fits in, but looks so much more like a ray of sunshine)
and i love how Boulder opals look so different from each other in their coloring
I like the confused-looking one next to Boulder.
I love how those stones look IRL, it's like a crunchy cookie, cracking to reveal rainbow filling, they look so tasty.
Also is that metaphorical?, like a wall slowly breaking away to reveal the brilliance inside?
