Light: Show him in brighter lighting
Pink represents Kirby's characteristics in many ways. The color of these flowers just emits a sort of softness. Generally, pink is a lighter, more uplifting color. Kirby, being a character that is constantly traversing the skies and clouds, mostly floating to get around, automatically fits perfectly to the color pink. The pink flowers in this picture radiate happiness, much like how Kirby tries to maintain peace and encourage happiness. Pink also symbolizes sweetness, being the color of Valentine's Day, cotton candy, and flowers like these. The sweetness of pink translates to Kirby's heroic, but caring nature.
Kirby's character would be depicted in a light manner to represent many aspects of his character. Much like the man in this picture, Kirby is a champion. Kirby thwarts the efforts of his opponents to save people from evil and destruction. The beings of Kirby's world depend on his ability to triumph over others, so showing Kirby in light like the man above also symbolizes he is succeeding, in other words..."the good guy always wins." Putting Kirby in the spotlight like this man also confirms his importance. Being the main character of his story, Kirby is more likely to appear lightened up.
Kirby is also round in many ways, just like these marshmallows. The marshmallows round shape allows it to appear soft because of the lack of sharp edges or corners. Kirby, the happy, caring hero, is round to show his soft, squishy body. Not only is he physically soft, but he is emotionally soft, protecting the beings of his land from harm. Pointed characters appear more harsh at first, compared to Kirby's roundness, which instantly makes him look safer and harmless. Marshmallows are less threatening, being rounded, than a knife, which is pointed and sharply edged.
