Steampunk Patty O'Green by LillyKitten Steampunk Patty O'Green by LillyKitten
Steampunk Rainbow Brite series- Patty O'Green.

I've seen a lot of Lolita, Steampunk, Goth etc versions of many pop culture icons. Disney girls, Nintendo characters and so on.

I love the idea of it, it's a great way of exploring creative design. I went through a bit of a phase searching them out and hunting them up.

I got quite inspited by the hunt, but I wanted to do something totally new, something other people simply hadn't thought of, hadn't explored, so i started pairing up unlikely styles with series and my first idea was Steampunk Rainbow Brites. Their cute childish, lolitaesque demenor was totally NOT the gritty raw Victorian look of Steampunk.

I like a challange.

Patty O'Green was my first choice. She was ALWAYS my favourite as a little girl. I loved her, so she was the ideal place to start. I've planned out and sketched almost all of them, so keep a weather eye out, she's just the beginning f a beautiful relationship XD

I question the background, perhaps it's a bit much? I'm not sure. I may change it... but until then...

THIS IMAGE IS BEING UPDATED AND WIL BE MOVED TO SCRAPS WHEN THE UPDATE IS UPLOADED. It will be becoming a Lolita image instead of fanart.

Aaaaugh! SO ADORABLE! You, little girl, grow up fast! That or start hitting people with the wrench so I don't have to lust after you and can just think you're awesome.

Also, from further up, Steampink has to happen. Bubblegum Goth is one of my favorites anyway. You will see that this happens! Chop chop, woman! Hyah, mule! Howdy, neighbor, move it or lose it! Uh... please?

Well, there WAS a Tickled Pink... And I believe one of the randoms (I can't remember her name, something to do witht he Moon) was ALSO pink, so there are two to look forward to in that respect- Yellow is boyish, Violet is Victorian, Indigo is fighter, Rainbow Brite is Captain, but Tickled pink will be Steampinked ;)

Oh I love her! The cutesyness is a little overwhelming in a totally good way. Something about the spanner makes me squee a little too....

And dear lord I want that dress. <3

Giant novelty spanner... there's something awesome about them, I got one for my brother for his birthday (well, it's actually useful for doing train things- but it looks oversized in a cartoony way!)

So do I! I love doing these, but I end up wanting the clothing all the time D:

Not sure when. La La is in the computer at the moment, she just needs shading, Shy Violet, Buddy Blue and Rainbow are all drawn. I may keep Rainbow till last though! Tickled Pink has been conceptualized, so has Indigo, Murky and Stormy, so it'll be fairly quick in coming out!

Gives her more personality (in my opintion) Rainbow Brite was a typical kids cartoon- very cute and colourful, but it lacked substance...

A very good point! I’ve always preferred cartoons with a little more grit or depth to them, but they were few and far between when I was growing up :nod:

That may be why Saturday morning Disney cartoons were so popular, I actually picked up a few recently, and by the gods, you can't do a lot of what they did back then now.

You've kept her cuteness and added a dash of steampunk to it, very nice. :D :thumbsup:

Thank you very much! I did love Patty- i wanted my hair just like hers when I was little- until my Mum told me I'd have to cut it shorter for it to work.. O.o

More coming soon...

I didn't even notice the background until you mentioned it, but I think it enhances the whole picture.
