Rainbow Land by Loverofpiggies Rainbow Land by Loverofpiggies
...PHEW! This took so much work! XD This is what I was mainly wanting to get to. I wanted to have all the color kids in a 'photo' in front of the Rainbow Castle!

Now a few things to say about each character, background, ect ect. Indigo has barely any pictures ANYWHERE online. It was very difficult to find a front view shot of her, so that I could accurately draw and color her in. I only found one, a very tiny smudgy picture. Buddy Blue I probably enjoyed coloring the least out of all of them, partially because I've never been a fan of his outfit.

I had the most fun drawing Patty O Green, Tickled Pink, Canary Yellow, and Lala Orange.

I had the hardest time drawing Rainbow Brite (probably because she was the first one I drew) but she also came out just perfect, so it was worth the work.

I colored the Color Castle, and all the Color Kids on Paint Tool SAI. The kids I penciled and inked on paper first, and scanned them in. The Color Castle took 4-5 hours to draw, and once again I was working off of tiny tiny pictures I could find online. I didn't make up any features though, I just expanded what I could see.

Overall, this picture took me.... three days of work altogether, and is probably the picture that took the longest out of my gallery. (Well worth it though!) And it took 30 minutes to an hour to decide exactly where I wanted everyone. Not sure what else to say, but thank you for looking at my picture, and thank you for putting up with all the Rainbow Brite fanart! How sad I've already drawn them. I may do more eventually.

Also, consider this a thank you picture for 70k pageviews, thank you all very much for the support!

Enjoy!

Thank you so much for adding Tickled Pink, Moonglow and Stormy! They are color Kids too and so many people say they arn't! Thanks again for putting them in your piece!

Out of those three Tickled pink is the only one who qualifies as a color kid since a color makes her name. Moonglo and Stormy like Rainbow are considered sky powers since they do not deal with color. Even though rainbow does deal in color the star on her belt indicates she is also responsible for the heat since heat of stars determine their color. Moonglo is the night and stormy the winter/storms. Stormy and Moonglo are essentially equal to rainbow in power thus they are not color kids. In 2009 Tickled Pink was promoted to a sky powers member since her  power was to similar to rainbow thus she got the day. This is probably the reason why. Tickled pink was a lot more powerful than the color kids so she was essentailly considered Rainbow's sidekick along with Moonglo in both versions. Just like Krys and Brian are in their own group Rainbow Moonglo Stormy and Pink are in their own group. Basically the color kids are those on the wheel meaning Lime Scarlet Marigolds/Goldenrod Fuchsia and Turquoise are missing.

I love it. I try looking for the original color kids (the 8 named after colors and the 2 named after natural phenomena), but it's so hard.

I love it! A fitting tribute to the original - with definite personal stylistic flare. :)
