Cerulean Centuries by Taiko554
Cerulean Centuries
Way back when I first started making pixel riders and rangers, a fad over on Rangerboard seemed to be making rangers for seasons using your favorite color.  So in that vein, I decided to make cerulean rangers for some series.  And now with Toqger over, I have watched a decade's worth of consecutive Super Sentai series.  Which to me is pretty cool and I wish I had realized Toqger was my personal 10th anniversary series.  I might have done something like this earlier if I had realized that.  Man, time flies. 
I guess I might as well share my rankings for the above series.  As I said, I've now watched 10 consecutive Super Sentai entire series.  I've watched episodes of other seasons here and there but never finished anything prior to Magiranger.  My order from most to least favorite is Gekiranger (1), Gokaiger (2), Shinkenger (3), Kyoryuger (4), Boukenger (5), Magiranger (6), Toqger (7), Go-Onger (8), Go-Busters (9), and Goseiger (10).  That's just my preference, I'm aware not everybody will agree with all those rankings for the 10 series included in the pic above. 

But now in order, here are the rangers.  On the top row:
"The Deep Endless Void Element!  Magi Cerulean!" Mystical creature is the krakken.
"The Cosmic Adventurer!  Bouken Cerulean!"  Mecha would be akin to a base, like the International Space Station, has solar panel-esque grid designs throughout.
"The soul is cleansed with each breath!  The Serene Soul!  Geki Talon!"  Animal is an owl, design very slightly inspired by Shaolin monks.
"Atomic Innovation!  Go-On Cerulean!" Mecha is a spaceship/sea turtle hybrid.
"Shinken Cerulean!" Name never revealed/unknown.  Kanji/element is 'void' and his animal is a hawk.

On the bottom row:
"The Seaick Power of Electricity!  Gosei Cerulean!"  Animal is the electric eel.
"Gokai Ceurlean!"  Mecha is a flying-saucer esque spaceship.
"Cerulean Buster!"  Mecha is a whale/aircraft carrier changer.
"The Sawing Brave!  Kyoryu Cerulean!"  Dinosaur is a dimetrodon.
"Toq X!"  Pronounced like Cross, so phoentically similar to the mooks name "Kuros/Crows".  Mecha is the nuclear ressha.


So you may notice some recurring themes: outer space/void, the ocean/sea, and atomic/nuclear energy.  I liked using the neon green accent color on a lot of the more tech-based seasons because it fits well with the atomic/nuclear energy aspect.  As you can see, some rangers got more individualized designs apart from the core rangers' designs and some didn't.  I especially thought Magi Cerulean and Gosei Cerulean could just fit right into their respective core teams with their designs and themes, so I thought it better to leave them as similar to the core rangers.  Others, I went designs more akin to sixths or extra rangers.  I especially like the end results for Go-On Cerulean and Kyoryu Cerulean.  Those two may be my favorites of the set.

I may make more as time goes on, but these are definitely the ones I wanted to get done first since I've actually seen all of these Sentai series.  I may also venture into making cerulean-colored riders at some point, time will tell.

Kamen Rider Proto Drive by Taiko554
Kamen Rider Proto Drive
Here's the previous Drive who was defeated during the Global Freeze event, Proto Drive.  As has been revealed, and long speculated, Chase was Proto Drive before being brainwashed/programed/what-have-you into Machine Chaser working for the baddies.  Rumor now has it Chase will become a different rider later on.  We'll see. 

Proto Drive only had Type Speed.  He also used a motorcycle and didn't have the tire across his chest.  It's kind of a cool recolor design, but I would've liked a little more violet thrown about.

Kamen Rider Drive, Type Technic Tires by Taiko554
Kamen Rider Drive, Type Technic Tires
Here's the last *for a while at least* batch of tire changes for Drive, this time for Type Technic. 

Fire Braver, Rolling Gravity, and Road Winter. 

These tires are pretty basic compared to the others.  Heck, Rolling Gravity is just a blank tire...which makes sense because it's a steamroller, but still.  It also just has a very heavy weight as its weapon, which is weird.  Road Winter is definitely my favorite because it's got a snowflake design on a (let's face it) manhole cover and little snowmen on the actual tire.

Kamen Rider Drive, Type Wild Tires by Taiko554
Kamen Rider Drive, Type Wild Tires
And now to dig into Type Wild's tires! 

Rumble Dump, Hooking Wrecker, and Mad Doctor. 

I'm not too big on the design for Hooking Wrecker because it is very noticeably thinner than the other two.  But I do like the drill on Rumble Dumb and the heartbeats on Mad Doctor.

Kamen Rider Drive, Type Speed Tires by Taiko554
Kamen Rider Drive, Type Speed Tires
**Updated 2/16/15 with new tires**

So I've decided to go ahead and try to make the different tires Kamen Rider Drive will end up having throughout the series.  Eventually this will be a picture for all the tires as the series goes on. 

Up top, from left to right:
Max Flare, Funky Spike, Midnight Shadow, Justice Hunter, and Spin Mixer.
On the bottom:
Dimension Cab, Massive Monster, and Dream Vegas.

As time goes on, I will be updating this picture with the various tire koukan/exchanges for Type Speed only.  I think I'll be making another picture for his actual types/forms and tires accordingly, with the main Drive pic just dedicated to actual types/forms.  Yes, I am aware Type Speed has used Rumble Dump and Mad Doctor, but I've included those in Type Wild's picture.


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

It's a new year, so I've decided to try something new out.  I just joined the brave, new world of Twitter.  I have absolutely NO idea what I'm doing or if I'll even keep the account.  But for now, it's there to chitchat/tweet/talk with people, hopefully in a civil way (...hopefully).

Hit me up?  Tweet at me?  What even is the term?  I feel like I'm too old to learn all that junk. #oldsoul? #rookiestatus?  Sure.  Why not.

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.

Hey Taiko, if you got a minuet I'd like to ask for some quick advice. I'm working on a Kamen Rider design for a friend of mine, but I wanna do something that kind of hasn't been done before with the helmet. I wanna give it a visor that has the compound eye texture of traditional Kamen Rider Eyes, but I'm wondering how the reflections on something like this would work. Thank you for your time.  

Here's the wip for what I have just so you have some form of visual aid. I managed to get the compound look right, but again the reflections are giving me trouble.  sta.sh/0qvea823q91

I'd suggest looking at how reflections play upon the helmets of Faiz, Kiva, and Gaim.  See if that gives you some ideas.

Thanks for letting me know.  Youtube seems to be pretty difficult when it comes to removing videos which use my art.

Your welcome ^^
They probably needed images for the video and they didn't know your very touchy when it comes to people using your artwork, they don't seem like bad people, just uninformed. May I suggest something?(<-Not artwork related)

This isn't a request, but I AM curious... do you plan on doing the "Super Power Beat Down/Bat in the Sun" variations of the Power Rangers costumes? Thanks in advance either way.
