Yasei Sentai Keitouranger, Lightning Rangers by Taiko554
Yasei Sentai Keitouranger, Lightning Rangers
Here's the last part of the of the Yasei Sentai Keitouranger [(野生戦隊系統レンジャー) translates to "Wild Squadron Lineage-Ranger"] idea, original pic here taiko554.deviantart.com/art/Ya…

This here is the current team's "sixth ranger" along with his sole preceding Lightning Green Ranger.  Both are actually brothers of their respective team's Fire Red Rangers.  I mean, c'mon, that may have been a bit obvious from previous posts about the current Fire Red/Aidan, and the whole idea is about family.  So although it gets used in Sentai/Toku quite a bit, it's getting used here because it works well with the theme.

The first Lightning Green Ranger fought with the first team of rangers, and during the team's final battle he was seemingly killed (again; see below) alongside his comrades.  However, the evil force was able to trap his abilities/essence/spirit/etc. in an unstable state for a couple centuries.  The evil attempted to bring out their brainwashed ranger multiple times through subsequent generations with little to no success.  In the current rangers' (Aidan and co.) generation, the evil forces finally perfect their brainwashed control of the first Lightning Green Ranger and make him fight against these rangers.  The first Lightning Green Ranger is at this point a very weak and nearly empty shell of the man he once was after all the years under the evil's control.  After a particularly brutal battle in which evil's victory seems assured, aided by the Lightning Green Ranger, he is able to break through the evil's control and with help form a familiar face, transfer his elemental powers to a new host body.

Sean Ryan is the current Lightning Green Ranger.  Sean is Aidan's older brother who disappeared before our story begins.  Aidan had always looked up to him and was dumbfounded and angry when his brother disappeared without a trace, leaving Aidan to assume the role as the Fire Red Ranger.  However, Sean did not abandon his family's fight against evil.  His and Aidan's grandfather (Stephen, who had been married to Maeve Ryan) had told Sean of various Ryan family documents investigating the disappearance and lack of resurgence of the first Lightning Green Ranger.  Heads of the Ryan family eventually deduced that the first Lightning Green Ranger had been captured and amassed a wealth of clues and investigations into his whereabouts.  This was the mission their grandfather set Sean upon without informing Aidan.  Sean was able to eliminate possible locations over a year long journey and found where the first Lightning Green Ranger was being held just as the evil forces first sent him against the current rangers.  At the end of the next battle, Sean was able to give the first Lightning Green Ranger a moment of clarity, peace, and freedom from evil's control and instructed him how the various Red Fire Rangers had passed down their abilities via their blood line (since Sean was originally to become the Red Fire Ranger and therefore knew all his family's methods and means, it's logical he would know this).  With this successful, Sean became only the second Lightning Green Ranger, joining his brother and other rangers in their fight.  At first the power was difficult to control as it rid itself of evil's control but Sean found himself able to wield it more and more proficiently in a short amount of time.  Sean is a cautious optimist who (somewhat rightfully, given his year + mission) thinks he can handle a lot of tasks by himself and takes time to act as a member of the team.  His animal is the dragon.  As he is a Ryan, Sean's traditional family title is "The Champion".

The first Lightning Green Ranger was Connor Ryan.  Connor was Brandon Ryan's significantly younger brother and always enviously and riskily measured himself against Brandon.  Connor was found to have stowed away on Brandon's mission and shortly before their mission was accomplished, Connor fell through a crevice (which led the others to believe he was dead) to a different chamber which housed the lightning element and protected the other five element's enchanted seal.  Connor then took the power and became incredibly overwhelmed by the surge and was left unable to move as the power coursed through him.  Months later, after his brother and friends had become rangers, Connor finally got the power under his control and joined them in their fight, finally understanding his element's role as the protector of the other five and necessary to reseal the evil.  However, the events above occurred, he became trapped for a century and a half or so, then became a brainwashed slave, and was forced to fight against his brother's descendant and other current rangers.  It's at this time Sean Ryan (a distant descendant, like great-great-great-grand nephew(?) of Connor's) is able to instruct Connor how to pass along elemental powers via family lines.  Connor finally dies at peace, wishing Sean good luck and telling him the element's role as the protector of the other five.  Connor's animal was also the dragon.  "The Rogue".


That's it for these two and the whole idea.  It's all done, yay.  I had originally mentioned the possibility of a future team, but that would mean the current rangers wouldn't have been successful in defeating the evil forces, and that'd just be lame.  So no future team, it's done with Aidan's generation.

Yasei Sentai Keitouranger, Air Rangers by Taiko554
Yasei Sentai Keitouranger, Air Rangers
Ha, today was a two-for-one special with both our current ladies!  Part five of the previous rangers pics for Yasei Sentai Keitouranger [(野生戦隊系統レンジャー) translates to "Wild Squadron Lineage-Ranger"], original pic here taiko554.deviantart.com/art/Ya…

The air rangers are the only line which have more females than males.  Unlike the Fire Red Rangers, none of the other power sets are handed down from parent to child.  As such, none of the rangers here are related.  And going off what I said on the Fire Red pic, there's not going to be much said about the various other rangers.

Yuri Suzuki is the current air ranger, designated Air Pink Ranger.  Yuri is a good-natured wiz at anything she tries; she picks up new skills, learns new information, etc etc at the drop of a hat.  Because she's always on the move for something new to obsess over and then apply, she's fairly clumsy and has been known to knock into her fellow rangers and strangers.  Her clumsiness and abilities tend to annoy the other rangers but she's too caring to really get on their nerves.  Her animal is the crane.

The first air ranger was Gabriella Fernández, designation Air Violet Ranger.  Ryan family records are comparatively extensive on Gabriella as she financed a sizable majority of Brandon Ryan's expedition and then steadfastly demanded she partake in the adventure as well.  Brandon Ryan's personal notes state he fell in love with Gabriella but did not act on his feelings towards her because of their war against evil and would not want any potential children to be left parent-less.  Her animal was the peacock.

The second air ranger was Dmitri Ivanov, designation Air Fuschia Ranger.  Ryan family records state Dmitri was a natural-born fighter who was found in a detention center/prison.  Dmitri was reportedly not liked well by his fellow rangers beyond Liam Ryan, who Dmitri proclaimed his undying allegiance to for saving him from further detention/punishment/internment.  His animal was the eagle. 

The third air ranger was nicknamed "Papilo" (Latin for butterfly), designation Air Mauve Ranger.  Ryan family records do not list her name nor the other non-red rangers of her team but it is known the rangers trusted Shane Ryan with their true names/identities.  Ryan family records state that although she was a capable fighter and perfectly kind person, "Papilo" always seemed distracted and wandering.  Her animal was the butterfly.

The fourth air ranger was Charlie Wright, designation Air Purple Ranger.  Charlie was reportedly a perfect gentleman who tried to hold himself to chivalrous codes of honor but always failed around beautiful women.  His animal was the rhinoceros beetle. 

The fifth air ranger was Seo-Hyun Park, designation Air Cerise Ranger.  Like her contemporary rangers, Seo-Hyun enlisted in the military and was an ace fighter pilot before inheriting her elemental powers.  Her animal was the owl. 


That's it for this set.  The animal choices for these rangers are just fliers, so birds and insects.  I thought about a bat, but decided against it since it didn't really fit anywhere I liked and any reason to not choose another mammal is fine by me.  The colors are all about pink, violet, and magenta tones.  I used "violet" to denote the brighter color tone, closer to the blue/indigo end and "purple" to denote the darker tone, more of a dark magenta.  I'm not too keen on any of the helmets, but I like all their color choices and Dmitri's (2nd) emblem.

Yasei Sentai Keitouranger, Wood Rangers by Taiko554
Yasei Sentai Keitouranger, Wood Rangers
Part four of the previous rangers pics for Yasei Sentai Keitouranger [(野生戦隊系統レンジャー) translates to "Wild Squadron Lineage-Ranger"], original pic here taiko554.deviantart.com/art/Ya…

And this is the first with a current female ranger.  However, the majority are males.  Unlike the Fire Red Rangers, none of the other power sets are handed down from parent to child.  As such, none of the rangers here are related.  And going off what I said on the Fire Red pic, there's not going to be much said about the various other rangers.

Sofia Marino is the current wood ranger, designated Wood Yellow Ranger.  Sofia puts up a rough front but actually hides a very wealthy family and upbringing she is embarrassed by.  As such, Sofia tends not to ask for help but rather find her own way out of tricky situations.  Sofia is perhaps the most dedicated to her element besides Aidan (as he's had his whole life to study and research) and as such is immensely skilled in using her element.  Her animal is the tiger. 

The first wood ranger was Lukas Müller, designation Wood Amber Ranger.   Ryan family records list Lukas as basically the jack-of-all-trades on Brandon's expedition: prepping meals, tending to wounds, stocking weapons, mending transport vessels.  His animal was the lion.

The second wood ranger was Arjun Singh, designation Wood Olive Ranger.  Ryan family records state he was a farmer before becoming a ranger and always yearned to return to work the land.  His animal was the bear.

The third wood ranger was nicknamed "Lacertus" (Latin for lizard, in this case), designation Wood Beige Ranger.  Ryan family records do not list her name nor the other non-red rangers of her team but it is known the rangers trusted Shane Ryan with their true names/identities.  Her animal was the gila monster.

The fourth wood ranger was Karim Akhtar, designation Wood Ecru Ranger.  Karim reportedly thought his abilities should be enough to protect against evil, but underestimated the need for a team and support network.  Even after this realization, Ryan family records repeatedly state Karim was still a bit of a wildcard and only obeyed the orders of Maeve Ryan.  His animal was the wolf.

The fifth wood ranger was Itsuki Watanabe, designation Wood Orange Ranger.  Like his contemporary rangers, Itsuki enlisted in the military, although weary of the power of man's ever-expanding means of war.  Itsuki was always the voice of caution and restraint among his team but never wavered when fighting against true evil.  His animal was the cobra.


That's it for this set.  The animal choices for these rangers is pretty much just terrestrial predators.  Kinda means we get typical mammals, so I tossed in some reptiles too, they get a bum rap in Sentai.  So I actually really like using a squid and crab.  The colors are all about blue tones, barely teetering on a green-er range with teal.  I really like the emblems on Lukas' (1st) and Arjun's (2nd) suits, and then Itsuki's (5th) helmet.

Yasei Sentai Keitouranger, Water Rangers by Taiko554
Yasei Sentai Keitouranger, Water Rangers
Part three of the previous rangers pics for Yasei Sentai Keitouranger [(野生戦隊系統レンジャー) translates to "Wild Squadron Lineage-Ranger"], original pic here taiko554.deviantart.com/art/Ya…

Interestingly, the Water Rangers here are the only element type to have an even 3/3 gender split of rangers.  Unlike the Fire Red Rangers, none of the other power sets are handed down from parent to child.  As such, none of the rangers here are related.  And going off what I said on the Fire Red pic, there's not going to be much said about the various other rangers.

Josh Santos is the current water ranger, designated Water Blue Ranger.  Josh is an excitable person who hides his immense intellect by acting like a carefree oaf.  Josh was raised on various Pacific Islands, hopping around to various bases per his parents' work and as such has always felt connected to the ocean, beach, island-er culture and prefers this lifestyle to anything involving war or fighting evil.  Among his fellow rangers, Josh is the least experienced in fighting but due to his intelligence can quickly pick up new maneuvers and patterns to help his team.  His animal is the shark.

The first water ranger was Hai Wang, designation Water Cyan Ranger.  Hai was a brilliant naval strategist and navigator who joined Brandon Ryan's expedition in the same role.  Ryan family records state the two enjoyed a close intellectual rivalry and respect despite their cultural differences.  His animal was the hammerhead shark.

The second water ranger was Amelia Perry, designation Water Azure Ranger.  Ryan family records state she was a very straightforward, non-nonsense woman who fought for herself more than a mission to eradicate evil.  Her animal was the dolphin.

The third water ranger was nicknamed "Cirinus" (Latin for tentacle, i.e. from a squid), designation Water Navy Ranger.  Ryan family records to not list his name nor the other non-red rangers of his team but it is known the rangers trusted Shane Ryan with their true names/identities.  Records further state "Cirinus" was the most able fighter of his team and happily taught his fellow rangers everything he could.  His animal was the squid.

The fourth water ranger was Riya Sharma, designation Water Teal Ranger.  Rather than assist in the creation of a central support hub against evil as was Meave's wish, Riya traveled looking for clues to possible elemental users/rangers and how to defeat the forces of evil.  Her animal was the eel.

The fifth water ranger was Beatriz Soares, designation Water Steel Ranger.  Like her contemporary rangers, Beatriz enlisted in the military but more for the future political aspirations rather than combat/war training.  Unfortunately, Beatriz would not fulfill her political aspirations as she took her duty as a ranger very seriously.  Her animal was the crab.  


That's it for this set.  Basically the animal choices for the water rangers are just marine animals and a wider selection than just fish.  So I actually really like using a squid and crab.  The colors are all about blue tones, barely teetering on a green-er range with teal.  Other than Josh's (current) suit, I really like the emblem on "Cirinus'" (3rd) and the emblem and helmet on Beatriz's (5th).  Anything else I would say has really already been said on the Fire Reds' pic.

I am open for commission pixel artwork.  Please note I am only open for commission/compensated pixel work, not free requests, not art-trades.  Please also note that any requests I have done previously do not retroactively meet the criteria below as I was not compensated for that work.  Below you will find the general layout of terms for how I handle commissions regarding topic/idea, price, and timeframe.  I intend for this journal entry to be for general information about my commissions and general questions, not specifics for proposals.  If you are interested in commissioning me for a piece, I ask that you please send me a private note so we can discuss at length.  So let’s get right into it!

Not gonna happen! There are some ideas I will absolutely not do regardless of compensation.  These include: OCs for any canon/established series; cross-overs; cut-n-paste jobs; toy, stage show, or video game designs; weapons; any real/non-fiction people; or civilian appearances of canon/established characters in Kamen Rider, Super Sentai, or Power Rangers.  So long as your idea is either original or doesn’t fall into the groups just listed, I am open to discussing the commission.  Please understand however, that I still need to be interested in your proposal and will not take a commission if I am not interested.

Pricing! I charge based on design, meaning each new design is its own price.  In my mind, a core Sentai/Ranger team is one design, a sixth would be another design; one Rider/hero/character form is one design, any additional form or Rider/hero/character would be another.  Each design, as established by this rule is $5.  Examples: a Sentai/Ranger roster like Gorenger would be $5; like Zyuranger would be $10; like Go-Onger would be $10; like Hurricaneger would be $15; the $5/design for a Rider should be pretty easy to understand as each form/rider is independent from the last.  Any inclusion of civilian appearances would be an additional $5.  If you have questions about the pricing as established here, please address them in your note.  Please be specific in your note about what each design is to look like so I can try and get as close as possible to your vision; if you have a drawing or other previous work for me to base mine off of, please let me know. 

Timetable! General timeframe would be five weeks from my acceptance of your commission.  Meaning we may potentially discuss any questions either of us have in notes, but the clock will not start ticking once I tell you it’s a go and give you a due date for me to finish the work before/by.  If you want to discuss a more immediate product, that’s fine, but please understand that will come with a price increase, determined on a case-by-case basis.

Payment! I will only accept actual dollar amounts, not DA points or the like.  I prefer to use Paypal for payment.  Once I have finished the work, I will send you a note informing you of the completion and asking for your Paypal info so that I can send you a request.  After I’ve received payment, the work will be posted and/or sent to you.  If you do not have Paypal, we can discuss another type of electronic payment option.  This way, if I do not finish the commission by the due date provided, or change my mind about it, you’re not out any money.  If I finish the work even one day after the due date provided, I will not ask for payment but will still post the work.

Posting! Any finished work is something I would like to post in my gallery giving you, the customer, credit for the idea and commission.  As any commissioned work would be paid for, I am perfectly happy with the customer posting the work as well.  If slight changes need to be made, I am happy to accommodate within a week of posting; any drastic changes will need to be addressed in notes.  If the customer desires the work to be watermarked or not posted by me at all, I am happy to discuss this as well.


If you are interested in commissioning me for pixel work and have read all of these conditions, please send me a note describing your idea in full.  If your proposal is for an OC, the more long-winded and detail-oriented information you provide, the better I can create your idea.  If your proposal is for a canon/pre-established character not prohibited by the conditions above, please understand I may ask you to help me find decent sized/quality pictures of the character.  If you have any other questions/comments/concerns about commissions you can ask them below or in a note.  But please remember to send the actual commission proposals in notes only. 

Thanks,
Patrick

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.
