For this past challenge at the Square Carousel Collective, we were asked to illustrate one of our favorite childhood shows or cartoons. Initially I had drawn out this image for Sailor Moon, because really she was the biggest influences on me in that time. However, I really wanted to pull my watercolors out and my style is far too bright for the image I was planning and I just wasn't pleased with the direction it was going. So in keeping with the theme, I thought more about the project. Really, the magical girl genre as whole has always been a key inspiration for me, and the one who started it all when I was like three years old was Rainbow Brite! And who better to paint bright and fun than the girl who brings color to us all?
