Rainbow Brite and Color Kids by cwmodels Rainbow Brite and Color Kids by cwmodels
Redesigns by my friend Alpha2. I helped with some of the concepts and the color settings. We started toying around with the idea of updating Rainbow Brite characters back around 1995 for fun. Rainbow Brite, Red Butler, LaLa Orange, and Canary Yellow were done in 2000. We drifted away from this idea until last week and finally finished off the rest of the Colors Kids.

We tried to match all the character's outfits and styles to their personalities and make them unique looking from each other. But at the same time still maintain instant recognizability to the original designs.

So let us know what you think!

Would love to write my own script for the series.

I have ideas that can really expand the lore of Rainbow Brite.

What do you have in mind for them?

My idea fore expanded lore involves the two godesses Auxia who governs the warmer seasons and Damia who govers the colder seasons.

The goddesses looked on earth during the dark ages, a time where only blood coloured the grey earth and thus created Spectra from one of the stars in order to divide the holy light into many colours.

In order to manage colours, Auzia chosen the "Children of Colour", the first generation of Colour Kids.

Over time the Children of Colour fought the forces of darkness, It was in their last battle they lost their leader, Paladin White. The Children of Colour lost, it seems the godesses Auxia and Damia have gone. Given they lived in the temple of Rainbow Land, that sacred place now become known as the Pit as darkness claimed it.

Years later (around the 80s or early 90s) at a miserable orphanage, two girls live dreary lives there. One of those girls realise she is "Rainbow Brite", the reincarnation of Auxia. The other wonders why her friend abandoned her.

As for the Children of Colour, well they're "gone", but successors were chosen who are now known as the Colour Kids.

While the original Children of Colour are long gone, not all of them are lost. Paladin White could be somewhere in the Pit. Having lost his purity, is now living a murky life, with only his sprite companion who had undergone mutation from the Pit.

These are just some of my ideas.

Love, love, LOVE! Especially Rainbow's outfit. And Red's got a cape! If anyone in the show were to have one, it'd be him. :D

I really enjoyed this; I was a Brite-obsessed kid back in the day, and still consider myself a fan. Thanks for sharing! My only thought is perhaps more obvious star imagery on Indigo and Shy Violet, although I admit I'd be at a loss as to placement. Keep up the good work!
