Featured Fan Artist: There is no lack of color with this month's featured fan artist. This month we feature "Crayon Chewer", and when you've got it, flaunt it! She does well in embracing color and making you want to cry out in awe of the cuteness! From her fan art on Pokemon, My Little Pony or just anything "Chibi". The piece we are featuring this month is specifically of "Rainbow Brite" and is Crayon-Chewer's hopes for a successful Rainbow Brite Relaunch. True to the original design and cute, she kept a lot of the original appearance of Rainbow Brite, Starlite and Twink, but in a style that is very whimsical and all her own. Well done!

Artist: Kuakness

Featured Fan Artist: We all have to start somewhere. This was one of the first drawings done by this month's artist, and while she's come a long way in her art since this picture was done it's a good idea to look back and see where you have been to see how far you have come. Cheerful and bright, Rainbow Brite with Starlite is by Kuakness of DeviantArt way back in 2006. Still it's one you keep wanting to look back at. Take a moment to take a look yourself, as well as at other character art such as Disney, Anime, and many more!.

Featured Fan Artist: Rainbow Brite can be cute, but she can also be very glamorous, as you can see in this drawing done by "Starpowerrr". By her side is Krys, also dashing but not as dolled up as Rainbow, with her adorable dress and doe eyes. Starpowerrr has also drawn Shy Violet in this adorable style which can be seen on her blog (click image to view).

If you go to her blog you can see that the artist loves everything colorful, sparkled and cute! This drawing is truly a sweet treat! Good work!

Artist: Jerzy Drozd

Featured Fan Artist: Drawing Rainbow Brite is not as easy as some people may think. To capture the essence of childhood can be hard. Comic Artist Jerzy Drozd decided to draw her one day to get his creative juices going. He was able to get such details as the color castle, her color belt, those timeless moon boots and famous cheek star just about perfect, yet still in his own style. While the sketch was just an outline, which he says he will color later, it's nice to see that our favorite character still challenges artists, and for fans reminds us that she still inspires.

Artist: Robin E Kaplan

Featured Fan Artist: This month's featured artist is quite the charmer. She was kind enough to allow us to feature her for this month, and we thought it best to allow her to tell you how this piece came about in her own words:

I'm a children's book illustrator who does nerdy comic book show stuff on the side, and I was going through a week of re-discovering Rainbow Brite a while back, and that piece was the result. I've always been inspired by the really charming character designs in that show, and of course the fact that it was a 'girl show' with plenty of action and adventure. Also the best terrible villains ^.~

This art is beautiful to say the least. It seems to grasp the joy and playfulness of our childhoods in the design and small touches. It is as though each of the character's personalities is shown in their poses! If you like this print, click the picture above and you can order a copy of it from Etsy in a variety of sizes.

One is a sweet classic style chibi Rainbow Brite, gleeful and cute! They other a regular pop princess with modern updated costume, but still a few accents that echo the old style; mainly the ponytail, thick bangs, the rainbow sleeves, boots, and star accented hair and belt.

Both styles are very different, but they still shout "RAINBOW POWER"!

Artist: Chi & Alpha2

Featured Fan Artist: Some fan art can become a group effort, as what has come from Chi and Alpha2 of DeviantArt.

Chi: I was a fan of the Rainbow Brite cartoon series as a kid. I liked it because it had some really dark elements that most girls show don't have. Back around 1995 I played with some ideas to update Rainbow Brite with my friend Alpha2 for the fun of it. We both did our versions of Rainbow Brite and when I saw his redesign I knew he had a better take on it than I, so I urged him to do the rest of the characters too. Since he didn't really know the show as well, we kinda went back and forth on the ideas and that's why it took so long to get all the characters done. While working on the redesigns we did not want them to resemble any existing property (such as Sailor Moon or Barbie or Bratz dolls). We tackled them from the character's personality and what they are supposed to represent. We tried to make them unique looking from each other, but at the same time still maintain instant irreconcilability to the original visuals.

Together they have expanded on their redesign of Rainbow Brite & the Color Kids, her friends, and Villains!

Artist: Mary Cagle (Shikaku Suika of DeviantArt)
Artist Links: "Kiwi Blitz"

Featured Fan Artist: Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and it is perfectly captured in this piece by Mary Cagle. Ms Cagle is an artist who decided to take on drawing Rainbow Brite and her friends in her own special style.

Her style is unique while influenced by Japanese Anime as well as other things. You can see these influences in her very own web-comic ‚ÄúKiwi Blitz‚ÄĚ which follows the adventures of a couple of American teenagers in the near future who fight crime with robots.

In her interpretation of Rainbow Brite Characters, she has drawn them in the style of her comic. You could almost see her heroine dressing as these characters for Halloween or a fancy dress party.

Here is her own words about how Rainbow Brite influenced her work:

Rainbow Brite was one of a few series I really liked as a kid that included both adorable characters and adventurous stories. There was even some surprising depth (especially in that first episode!) for a show based on greeting cards. I always liked that combination. It's really too bad that Bratz-style toys have taken over the young population's interest since then.

This month we proudly feature a re-vamped ‚ÄúClassic‚ÄĚ Rainbow Brite Logo using Mary's version of Rainbow Brite and Twink. She is also taking on other characters such as Moonglow, Stormy, and Lala Orange and will be working on doing more classic characters in the near future. If you want to view any of these creations or even order prints, please visit her¬†Deviant Gallery! Share the rainbow and tell this awesome artist how great her art is!

Featured Fan Artist: Its nice to find Fan Art that uses different textures, shading and even a realistic approach. That's the fun of colors in general, finding ways to let the light shine through. Recently artist E.P. (Maahs of DeviantArt) attempted a more realistic shaded look to our beloved Rainbow Brite character. The coloring makes you want to find your watercolor set and attempt the look yourself, though I'm not sure we all could achieve such a gorgeous look ourselves without what seems to have taken this artist hours of practice.

In this image Rainbow Brite maintains her innocent look, glancing up to you with wide blue eyes and impish grin. If you get a chance go to DeviantArt and let this artist know how much you enjoy this piece and share the rainbow with those you love!

Keeping the character impish and charming hugging her own special sprite Lucky, it's hard not to smile.

Artist: Hezaa

Featured Fan Artist: When one thinks of Rainbow Brite they think of the sparkling blue eyed girl with blond hair and star kissed cheek with the ability to bring color to the world with a touch of her fingers to the magic Star Sprinkles, or her Color Belt. Now and then an artist is able to capture this with their imaginations and bring her to a new level of reality. That is what "Hezaa" of DeviantArt did. Using beautiful textures and lights, shading and depth, Rainbow Brite truly shines.

The artist considers this piece unfinished, but I for one, think she is lovely and a perfect ending for this years featured Fan Art! Bravo!
