Bubble Buddies Color Keys!
I think this was one of my favorite episodes that I worked on! I just thought the idea of Steven and Connie in a bubble was really cute and they visit so many cool places in this episode. The underwater stuff was heavily inspired by Super Mario World!

In addition to gaining the Sight and having been trained by swordsmen and spies, by the short end of his seventeenth year Haytham Kenway had developed a thirst for trinkets that would choke a magpie. To serve that need Haytham had over the preceding years, privately and with great pride, become a rather accomplished thief.
In his eighth year he’d stolen a ribbon from his sister’s room. Jenny had received it from his mother and wore it only once before it had disappeared into her growing collection of incentive baubles. It had truly been his mother’s taste, a velveteen attempt at kindness. Young Haytham had decided Jenny would not miss it, and much later, his hair grown long, he’d worn the ribbon himself without shame or too much misplaced sentimentality.

Drinking vessels in the form of owls and birds of prey were popular in German-speaking lands during the 16th and 17th centuries. On this example, the coconut shell has been carved with feathers and the silver mounts have a similar naturalistic effect.
Another round of detail shots from the littlest Tel. The book is a little over an inch high, and fully readable (though, uh, mostly blank). The tall basket is woven, the two smaller ones are crochet. The soul gems contain all that remains of the mortal essence of the last two jokers that crossed me.
