Just trying to draw more…
I Read about the production of the newest franchise reboot…POWER RANGERS and got really excited.
I was a big fan of the show when it first aired in the US. The crude spandex suit, the seemingly cardboard-clad Zords, and even the hastily dubbed lines caught my attention.
I always thought that the Rangers could look cooler, but things were different in the early 90’s. They didn’t have a huge budget so they made do with what they could.
Enter the Power Rangers movie! They totally retooled the suits giving them weight, toughness and a cool factor not yet achieved by the tv show. I believe it was at this point in my life where I became intrigued by concept/character design. I spent hours drawing my version of the Power Rangers.
For years to follow, I wondered how the re imagined Batman and Superman films would make my beloved heroes look on the big screen! How would the X-Men look in these “realism is everything” times?
I have yet to really contribute to that world on a professional level. It was and sometimes still is a dream to be a part of it.
So, upon hearing news of this reboot I have decided to contribute. This was just a sketch, but it got the creative juices flowing. That’s what I need right now.
The inspiration for this design came from the popular Marvel films where the characters are seemingly covered in layer upon layer of armor, Lycra and a myriad of other material. So I went with the, “Is that a super hero or motocross enthusiast?” approach.
I wouldn’t say it’s my favorite style. Just the most popular. I will experiment with a much more fluid, pleasing on a personal level style next.
Thanks for reading and viewing. Keep watching out for more posts!
