This is a piece that is apart of my high school AP art concentration. This piece is specifically built around my character Reuben. I created Reuben around the challenge of implementing rainbow into a character design- I wanted to see if I could balance a more complicated color palette. I ended up referencing a lot of her design around the "Lolita" style: something I've found to be deceptively innocent with a darker underbelly. My goal with the background was to show the aesthetic, tone, and some story about the character visually in a typically ordinary setting. The background is made to reflect the character and how she interacts with the world.
