March 2012 Laika Creative Challenge Submission

For this month's challenge, Laika had us create a character that resembled Spring! I came up with this Spring sprite. She is the youngest of the Season Sprites, probably around 6 years old. Having been asleep for so long under Winter's blanket of snow she is eager to wake up and get started on preparing spring time for the world. Here in Oregon, the spring weather varies and can change dramatically within the hour, the Spring sprite is the same way. Her elemental powers change given the mood she is in, and being a hyperactive 6 year old, her moods can change very quickly. When she is feeling content she sports green skin and a green leafy cape and plant life blooms at her slightest touch. When she is feeling sad or melancholy, she turns very blue and rain falls from the sky as she cries. The amount of rain depends on her degree of sadness. When her pet deer passed away from old age, we experienced a week long downpour with several thunderstorms. When Spring is at her happiest her body glows the brightest yellow, and her happiness allows her to float up into the air and dry the world with her warm sunshine. Spring is never very happy when she has to give up her reign of the season and has to pass on that power to her older brother, Summer. She tends to pout around the world until its her turn to be the lead Season Sprite again.
