Kamen Rider Drive, Type Tridoron Tires by Taiko554
Kamen Rider Drive, Type Tridoron Tires
Here are the tire blends (not changes this time) for Kamen Rider Drive's Type Tridoron.

On the left, Attack 1-2-3 (Max Flare, Funky Spike, and Midnight Shadow); in the middle, People Saver (Justice Hunter, Mad Doctor, and Fire Braver); on the right, Kouji Genbar [lit: Construction Site] (Spin Mixer, Rumble Dump, and Rolling Gravity). 

The idea is cool, Type Tridoron merges three shift cars' abilities into one tire, becoming more effective and trying to look cooler.  But actually, they all just look gross to me.  At least People Saver matches colors, but the other two are pretty striking.  The other two kinda/sorta use the bulky weapons associated with their forms, but since I already made them I didn't see a reason to include them here. 

Apparently there are a bunch of other combos/blends which have been revealed in title only.  Maybe one day in a special we'll see them, but this is all we've got now. 

Everything here is my hard work. Please don't touch anything without permission. Thanks.
Kamen Rider Drive, Type Formula Tires by Taiko554
Kamen Rider Drive, Type Formula Tires
These are the three tires changes for Kamen Rider Drive's Type Formula. 

On the left, orange Formula 01 Mantarn; in the middle, green Formula 02 Jacky; on the right, yellow Formula 03 Sparner.

The tires are pretty small, playing on the small front tires of formula one racecars.  These tires really aren't anything too special, but if any of them, I like 01 the best.  There's two of them, so it actually looks decent, especially with the contrasting orange.  Plus, it's not bulky like the other two. 

Everything here is my hard work. Please don't touch anything without permission. Thanks.
All Kamen Rider Leads, Final Form Version by Taiko554
All Kamen Rider Leads, Final Form Version
**Updated 7/29/15 with Drive Type Tridoron**

Wooo, final form time!  Now that I just finished Gaim's Kiwami Arms, it was time to debut this awesomeness.  This is a picture of the Hesei Kamen Riders in their final forms.  By that I mean, the final/most powerful forms they achieved during their series' runs.  Besides, I strongly dislike some of the 'extra final forms' riders have been receiving since Decade.  That trend is gross and unnecessary.  These are their final forms as I see/interpret/prefer them.  

From left-->right:
Kuuga Ultimate Form, Ryuki Survive Form, Blade King Form, Kabuto Hyper Form, Kiva Emperor Form, Double Extreme Form, Fourze Cosmic States, Gaim Kiwami Arms, Drive Type Tridoron, Wizard Infinity Style, OOO Putotyra Combo, Decade Complete Form, Den-O liner Form, Hibiki Armed Form, Faiz Blaster Form, and Agito Shining Form.

I do not plan nor want to make a version with the 'extra final forms' for Kuuga, Den-O, Double, OOO, Foruze, and Wizard (and presumably Gaim when the time comes).  These are the actual final forms the riders reached during their series, not additional movies. 
It's actually kind of funny how similar the color schemes are for the pre-Decade riders: black, gold, red, toss in a little silver or white and you're good to go for a final form.  Post-Decade?  Do whatever the hell hasn't been done before!

Shinnosuke Tomari, Kamen Rider Drive by Taiko554
Shinnosuke Tomari, Kamen Rider Drive
*Updated 7/28/15 with Types Formula and Tridoron*

This rider is....a DRIVER?!  Shinnosuke Tomari is a policeman in a special investigation unit who transforms into the race car-themed Kamen Rider Drive.  The monsters are androids and there are three main baddies at the moment, one of whom transforms into an eerie looking bike-rider hybrid thing.  Rather than a motorcycle, Drive rides around in his race car, Tridoron.

Drive's design takes some getting used to.  Truth be told, I'm still not 100% sold.  I like most of it, but I'm not too fond about the tire, spoiler on the head, and the boots/shoes.  I'm all for asymmetrical designs, but the tire is a little too much 'in your face' right now.  I've warmed up to odd designs so I'm sure I will with this one as well, I just need a little more time.  Drive uses different shift cars to change out his tire and change forms.  This picture features Drive's main "bodies" as he describes them, and types/forms as we're used to calling them.  Each type has its own specialty and its own slew of tire changes.

On the left we see Shinnosuke in a suit, with his tie done tight because he's in "top gear" (what a dumb catchphrase).
The red form is Type Speed and is Drive's first and most used form.  As it's name implies, this form is the quick and agile one.
The black form is Type Wild and is the heavy hitting strong form.
The green form is Type Technic and is the 'smart', proficient, and accurate form.
The blue form is Type Formula and is the mid-season upgrade.
The yellow-eyed red form is Type Tridoron and us the ultimate form.

The silver on the bottom is Type High Speed. 
Also on the bottom is the red/white form which is a cut-n-paste is Type Deadheat.

I've included Belt-san off to the right on the bottom in his normal eyed expression and another 'face'....shame/disappointment?  I dunno, but we see it a bunch.  I also made the Handle Sword, Door Gun, and Trailer Cannon weapons. 

So that's it for Drive for now!  Everything here is my hard work. Please don't touch anything without permission. Thanks.
Kamen Rider Drive, Types Formula and Tridoron by Taiko554
Kamen Rider Drive, Types Formula and Tridoron
Well here's something new.  And as people who keep bugging me know, overdue.  I haven't really cared to set aside time for these two forms, either because the series has been kinda lackluster and/or I've been focusing on other rider series. 

Type Formula is the blue form on the far left.  Formula is the mid-season upgrade for Drive, based on a formula race car.  As such, it has a bunch of features of those types of cars...which makes it extremely bulky and ugly.  Adding to that are the stickers for the various shift cars plastered all over.  Sure, it's a neat idea, but I think it's just terrible looking.  Type Formula looks so much better without them.  The stickers are the best I could do at this scale, and it was a pain to get them to look as decent as they do.

Type Tridoron is in the center and right.  Type Tridoron is the ultimate form for Kamen Rider Drive, with Shinnosuke in control in the center (with yellow eyes) and Krim Steinbelt/Belt-San/Mr. Belt in control on the right (with the ringed eyes).  I've got mixed feelings about Type Tridoron: I feel like it's a cool idea for it to be based on Drive's car but I really don't like the massive amount of asymmetry going on.  Ultimate forms have been mostly symmetrical save for smaller details/insignias, but Tridoron here is just off.  I also really don't like the yellow eyes, it's weird that they designers decided only the final form would have different colored eyes and keep the rest of the forms' eyes white.  And the wheeled feet are hella weird.   

Off to the side s the Trailer Cannon/Hou weapon used in both forms.  I'll be making the few tire changes for each form in the next couple of days so stay tuned for those. 

Everything here is my hard work. Please don't touch anything without permission. Thanks.   
*Deeeeeeep breath*

I've decided to take the plunge and try to get some more Kamen Riders done for the Hesei series I haven't completed yet.  I think I totaled up all the riders I've done and have left to make and I'm now a little bit past the halfway mark.  Which bodes well.  I hadn't realized just how many I haven't made quite yet.  So with that being said, I'm gonna tackle them.  I may be putting off some other pieces in the process because I would really just focus on all the past riders before doing current or new things.  I'll likely take a break here and there to create some newer designs, but for the most part, everything in the foreseeable future will be past riders from past Hesei series. 

I'm gonna do this in order of my least favorite series to most favorite.  Which is another reason I'm kinda be putting works for Drive on hold for a bit since it's still airing.  Below is my order of series from least favorite (and to be made soonest) to most favorite (to be made later on).  As I complete each Hesei series, I'll try to edit this entry to keep it up to date.

Hibiki (completed 4/5/15)
Ryuki (completed 4/24/15)
Kuuga (complete)
Decade (complete)
Wizard (complete)
Den-O (completed 5/15/15)
Fourze (complete)
Agito (completed 6/6/15)
Blade (completed 6/30/15)
Faiz (completed 7/5/15)
OOO (complete)
Double (complete)
Kiva (completed 7/23/15)
Gaim (complete)

**One more left!!**

While the above list serves as an order, it's not a timetable per se.  Some series will take more time than others because of the amount of riders or unique designs.  I'd *like/hope* to be done before Drive's series run is over in August/September of this year, but that may be unreasonable.  Please note, there will be no weapons or civilian appearances made for the remaining riders.  Also please note, I only plan to make riders from the series' runs on TV or in movies.

There it is, folks.  A general plan of attack to complete the remaining Hesei riders.  Fingers crossed I can get 'em all done by the deadline I just set.  

Thanks for tuning in!

I was born and raised in Northern Virginia. I went to college at James Madison University and graduated in 2012 with my Bachelor of Arts degree. I'm happy to say that I finally found work where I can put my degree to good use and I enjoy what I do.

I've been creating pixel art as a hobby for around five or six years and got into the medium while looking for pictures of Super Sentai when I learned that was the base footage for Power Rangers. From there, I became a fan of other tokusatsu programs as well.
