Color Inspiration in Animation: Vibrant Video Game Characters

From the early days of Atari and Nintendo Super Mario Bros, to the modern likes of Halo and more, video games have gained a fan following beyond near pastime enjoyment. From interactive online gaming, where players can literally play against one another onscreen, while living oceans apart, to myriad other modern innovations, video games have come a long way since day one.

Yet one thing has remained the same: the colorful clad characters within these imaginary worlds of wonder. Gathered here is an homage to some of our favorite oldie but goodie video game players, and their wonderful rainbow wardrobes. Pictures of each, as well as the palettes they’ve inspired can be seen below, and we’d love to see your own additions as well, Colourlovers!
