Dang greg's stayed the exact same


speedyskier22

Same but less stressed lol


Artificial_Human_17

Less stress will let him live longer too


GiygasDCU

Getting resuscitated by Steven when he will die will let him forever. ... Which means Steven's Tears are negative stress vectors?


warptwenty1

Well,in theory


mushroomguy12

Having millions of dollars tends to do that to a person.


vonsnootingham

Stress-free living? That costs something.

Fartikus

Na, a good example would be that he was embarrassed of his music back then; even shown in the screenshot. Now? He's fucking ***rocking*** it. He even got to be a ***GOOD*** manager of a rock band, instead of a bad one!


lacertasomnium

And I mean, there's also the millionaire thing...


nicokokun

Considering that his son *technically* owns Earth I think that being a millionaire is forgettable...


Alien_Dude_

*Guitar dad*


Fartikus

He's upgraded to [*Cool Guitar Dad*](https://i.imgur.com/5nX0IFH.jpg) now.

And that isn't even his final form

he was always cool guitar dad

TBH when I went from the Steven Movie back to watching Season 1 again, Greg's difference felt a lot more jarring. I feel like in season 1 he really delivers as being a mess and is shown a lot more droopy/rounded shaped, but in newer episodes he's more defined and is presented in a better light


The_Throwback_King

I never really viewed him as a mess beyond maybe like his debut episode. He's just a guy who goes by the strum of his own guitar. Not only that, he's a single father raising a one-of-a-kind son (physically and personality wise) with powers connected to a far off world, a world he'd just only been introduced to with Rose. Of course you'd be nervous helping your son take down a dangerous orb from the sky, it is literally alien to him. We just see him become more in tune and comfortable with CG biz as the show goes on. He has found a role that fits him best while still supporting his son in his growth. Thank you for listening to my TED Talk on why Greg=Best Dad


-Sai-

I think you're supposed to have that initial reaction to Greg anyway. Like "why is his dad some slob who lives in a van instead of with Steven?". I think most people had that thought. And to an outside observer Greg *would* look like a loser. A homeless, failed musician who runs a car wash in a remote town. But then as the show goes on you begin to appreciate he's actually a pretty great guy. Also he banged a magical space princess so he's got that going for him.


lirannl

> But then as the show goes on you begin to appreciate he's actually a pretty great guy. And he's happy with his life.


JAMSDreamer

>Also he banged a magical space princess so he's got that going for him. I must correct. He banged a magical space QUEEN.

Broke: Greg and Pearl are a loser and a neurotic worrywart Woke: Greg and Pearl seduced a space goddess and have more game than u

-Sai-

Been re-watching season 1 too and I think it's just more the characters were less refined. They've really tightened up the designs and smoothed out their silhouettes, which tends to happen as any cartoon goes on.


IncompotentCyborg

He never got poofed.


Philycheese18

You can’t improve perfection


NNovis

That's the shirt a millionaire wears.


Hurgablurg

His tanlines have stayed the same for 4 fucking years And for the first two years, he didn't even wear t-shirts to MAKE the tanlines.


Inverted_Paradox

No his hair got a bit more cool


B3nDaHuman0

Got some bad news...


darkespeon64

Too soon dude... too soon


Shiplord13

No... He got a black shirt and sunglasses.


23_Secret

Rockin’ those aviators tho


Lord_Derpington_

I mean besides all the emotional development that doesn’t show physically, like making up with Pearl, he’s also gotten thinner it seems. And richer.


pappypapaya

How do his tan lines work?!


JetStream0509

Nah he’s 100x more confident now


demonzanth

Only now he's wearing a shirt


Kaxew

The tan lines tho

Uh about that.......


BirdyHelper

His beard got shading


The_Throwback_King

And yes, I know that Spinel is technically with the diamonds now. But I'm referring to then (in season 1) and Now (as in, at the start of the movie) Not now in the current timeline.


Darkkingswrath

For the second one you should of used the one where shes covered in vegetation


Froggueth

Both images should be covered in vegetation, Spinel had already spent thousands of years in the garden by the time the show started.


potato_llama101

Happy cake day.


Froggueth

Shit dude it's my first cake day, thx tho that's cool


potato_llama101

Do smth for your cake day. Its once a year so its special.


Froggueth

You right! I should draw myself a cake and some friends and sing happy cake day to myself, I'm sure my parents will be thrilled to participate


potato_llama101

Imma upvote your posts since its your cake day.


Froggueth

You know what? Imma do that too on your cake day, no idea on how or if I'll actually be able to remember it by then 😜


potato_llama101

Nah its ok. Alot of people are nice. They can do it instead. Lol


killuazoldyck477

What's cake day


potato_llama101

Cake day is the day you created your account. Like your birthday except its for a reddit account.


killuazoldyck477

Ohhhh ok thanks


BigBassBone

So called because there's a little piece of cake next to your username.


lirannl

Exactly, this way Spinel still gets to stay the same in both images.


[deleted]

I just asumed it was black humour. As if the Diamonds only picked up Spinal only to dump her at the first opertune moment.


Dracyan

Well how do we know they didn’t drop her off at a different garden?


Omniscientous

Steven from a Starry-eyed child to an understanding teen. Garnet from Cool stoic mom to a cooler more expressive mom Pearl from a heavily obsessed maid-servant mom to an independent moved-on mom. Greg from best car wash dad to best millionare dad. Amethyst from an insecure amateur big sis to a mature big sis. Spinel from a childish dependent goof to an emmotionally broken goof.


RadleyCunningham

"Hey Greg, sweet new shades." "Heh you too, Garnet!"


Ipreferpintrest

Garnets become a lot more vibrant


Cadbury93

True, but I honestly prefer Garnet's first design, it was simple but it worked. The current design is too much imo.


WhereAreDosDroidekas

I miss when she had the color scheme of a Garnet.


fadedblackleggings

>The current design is too much imo. Garnet can never be too much.


ChemicalExperiment

In personality? No. In visual design? Definitely yes.


Kenutella

Agreed. I feel like they're trying to remind everyone that she's a fusion constantly. Even her second outfit was still pretty decent.


small_roo

Most of her designs are fine, I’m just not a fan of her new shades.


SkyKiwi

Can't believe how long it took me to see someone say this. I hate her new shades, personally. Everyone seemed to be cultishly in love with everything about their latest outfits in the finale when they all formed them.


just4thelolz

Watched That Will Be All today. Blue Diamond is like "This place (talking about the zoo) and the Earth are all we've got left of her (talking about Pink Diamond)" and I'm yelling at the screen: "NO, IT ISN'T!"


JamesRKS

In PD defense, everyone else forgot about Spinel too


kirby31200

Rewatching That Will Be All is weird now knowing that Rose was Pink, not just because of the Diamonds, but because of all those Rose Quartzes... and how they’re in pink bubbles...


gregmuldunna

Pink bubbles. Does that mean Pink bubbled all of the other rose Quartzes herself?


kirby31200

I actually saw another theory that >!The Rose Quartz gems aren’t real. We have never seen another Rose Quartz and that might be on purpose.!<


Bobsplosion

You added an extra space after the first spoiler tag that completely negated the spoiler tag from working.


kirby31200

It works great for me on mobile. I’ll delete the space but I won’t be able to tell if there’s any change because it already works for me


Bobsplosion

Works perfectly now 👍


just4thelolz

Either way I wanna find out what's up with them. I hope season 6 sheds some light on that. Bubbles get "sent home" when you tap them on the top and it seemed that at the time that room at the zoo was Pink's home. That's at least some weak evidence that she did it herself. (Although the bubbles could have been moved there easily.)


small_roo

I’d like to see more of the human zoo as a whole in season 6. We need the famethyst back!


Hannahdoll_10

Maybe it was a designed pink bubbler gem that did it.


italeteller

Oh wow the artstyle's changed a lot over the yyyyyyYOU FUCKER


MasterRedx

Damn look at those Pearl ***leggs***


VUXX6078

oh frick why do you gotta make me all emotional at that last one


jzieg

The real difference I see is just how much shadows were taken into account in the movie. The episode 1 shots have light falling on all areas of the character equally, but the movie's animation stile makes much more use of shading. I wouldn't expect it to be a recurring thing since it's probably more expensive, but I appreciate it.


ZaphodBeeblebrows

Greg vs The Cooler Greg


yung_clor0x

Is it bad that no-neck Steven looks weird now after seeing the current version?


RawWildBerry

Man when this show first came out, I was captivated by the art style, first season started out rough but should be expected by any first season and I came to have a rekindled love in Cartoon Network. We've came a long way, it was a homey feeling seeing Steven (the show and character) grow and be more considerate, learning about fusion as we asked questions about her and demanding for more fusions. But then seasons later, we learned about more Fusions and about other Gems. Season 2 Finale and Malachite scared me but became my favorite character of all, hoping to see her permanently fused. I got that wish but not in the way I wanted, wanted a independent mind that isn't Lapis or Jasper's. Decisions were made and they were right, the story was built beautifully, about all the questions were asked by the devs and it's a blessing to think that we knew nothing about SU but the release date, getting an unfamiliar creator who is female and given good words from her which makes the journey truly heartfelt.


Hannahdoll_10

WATCHING HER DRIIIIFTTT AWAY


ComicCroc

Steven finally got his wish to become a giant woman


[deleted]

I dig how Greg has not changed at all but bossed up and but some Ray-Bans w/ the mad loot he has. Nice.


The_Throwback_King

All he did was get cooler


[deleted]

You feel good about what you did there? Making me cry like that


[deleted]

Awww. The early Steven is sooooo cute. And that animation was so much more fluid and diverse! Ah, I loved it so much.


The_Throwback_King

He's traded some of his goofiness for maturity but he's still just as optimistic as ever. Our little Schtuball is really growing up.


[deleted]

True, but If I could've just stopped right there, we'd be. Totally fine. Totally us. Totally me.


RachealHood

Even if it takes a thousand years to animate we will the fans dont know what they want but we do Believe me Sugar, they'll geek out stronger They've been through hiatus, they'll wait much longer

Same! And Garnet’s. I have no real opinion on Pearl’s, though.


unitunicorn

ah yes, when garnet wasn't purple.


shintengo

Do you think the reason Amethysts gem is now completely exposed is because she is no longer ashamed of who she is?


The_Throwback_King

That's exactly what I think it is. It is the culmination of her character growth so far.

Not exactly... Both images of Spinel should be in the garden with everything already wilted. Otherwise, great meme.

ah fuck, I can’t believe you’ve done this.


Subzero008

ok first of all how dare you


SuddenEcho

Greg needs to even out his tan line I swear.


GUTS_ON_FLOOR

I’ve never watched this show and for some reason I think it’s a show about lesbians?


TinyFox_2

honestly you'd be mostly right. you should start watching the show. [Here's](https://katsuricata.com/floodorder/) a guide to season one, because that's the worst one to get through


KeMaZi378

It's the story of the remainder of what was oncea huge rebellion force. It's mainly focused on character development and has a strong storyline throughout (aside from s1 lol). It has great music and is a really beautiful show in general. It's also very supportive of the lgbt community. The show has maaany openly gay characters (since all the gems are female for some reason) and it basically doesn't care about what gender is, gender roles/norms etc. Oh and it talks a lot about accepting yourself and not pushing against whatever society's forcing you to do


Skili0

Greg looks like: Before and after you find out you banged a diamond.


Omtaii

pearl got a slight tan


R4V3-0N

This hurts me right in the feels.


katjamming

Garnet and Amethyst have become more purple lol


cookie-cat1

You really hit us with that

I only started watching this week and I’m already up to season 4, seeing stuff like this makes me so excited to see where this show is gonna go!

You genuinely had me cackling, I really thought this was just another season 1 / season 5 comparison

I was really enjoying this until I wasn't.

Hmm, yeah, the shading and art style in general have improved massively, though I’m not so sure about the outfits. Oh no, Greg’s is good. I wonder.... ... No. Why!!!!!

We've really come a long way, haven't we?


HorsesPlease

Steven looks more handsome in his older form.


XhrisTal

AAAAAAAAA THE LAST ONE

But at the time of the right pictures Steven's transmission has already been sent so we should actually see Spinel grabbing her giant injector or something. (Sorry if I ruined that emotional moment but yeah)

We should do one of these showing how characters are finally consistent in their heights.

At that point in the movie spinel was no longer there waiting though, she had already seen the broadcast and gone off the deep end.
