This is my entry for the April Rainbow contest
hosted by #TheEMTC
I've been doing a lot of 'fan art' emoticons recently, so this time around I wanted to try and make something using an original idea. I scribed this down one evening as I was half asleep and then spent a couple of days pixelling it up. The concepts revolves around the fact that you can 'build yourself a rainbow' using coloured bricks, so I decided to draw a little emote half way through creating one.
I decided to go for a different style of sky this time to try and give the impression of clouds. I then spent several ideas messing around with the clouds to get them to look right. I'm still not totally convinced with their placement, but you can only do so many edits before you have to move on and come back at a later date.I am always aware that the rainbow is missing one of the purple colours, but opted to use one to allow for a nice rainbow curve.
