The Count of Monte Cristo
thanks all. well, since I'm getting to the end of my pixel stuff, I thought I'd post my best original team.
Juunishi Sentai Archanger. (Juunishi is a tern in Japanese which refers to the Chinese zodiac's 12 animals. If I had the programming, I would finish the other 7 rangers, but there's only 5). 'Archanger' is meant to be a pun on archangel. I did change some of the animals around to make them better: [Rat->Porcupine, Snake->Python, Sheep->Ram, Monkey->Ape, Rooster->Eagle, Dog->Wolf, Pig->Boar]
"The Impulsive Tiger of Jupiter. Archred!" His name is Kenny Wells. And his master is Master Shere Khan.
"The Innovative Gorilla of Neptune. Archblue!" His name is David Cash. His master is Master Kerchak.
"The Loyal Wolf of Saturn. Archgreen!" His name is Michael Bowie. His master is Master Rama.
"The Practical Eagle of Mercury. Archyellow!" Her name is Diane Hawn. Her master is Master Zazu.
"The Graceful Python of Venus. Archpink!" Her name is Audrey Hurley. Her master is Master Kaa.
The symbols on the rangers' jackets and on their helmets is their respective planets' symbol. The chest symbol is complicated, but here's what it is. The circle has twelve spaces, representing the 12 animals of the zodiac. the black underneath, and then spreading out is shaped like a turtle/tortise b/c I remembered some creation myth about the world on a turtle's back? The top point is the head, then the front flippers go to the shoulders, and the bottom flippers (the inner 2 designs) go down to the belt. the belt buckle is just some random design, but it's supposed to be an octagon talisman (like the talismans based of the Chinese Zodiac in Jackie Chan Adventures). The writing on the masters' pants/skirts is the traditional Chinese of the zodiac animals.
the ranger's names are taken from celebrities who were born in the years of each animal. So:
Kenny Wells=Kenny Rogers, H.G. Wells
David Cash=David Copperfield, Johnny Cash
Michael Bowie=Michael Jackson, David Bowie
Diane Hawn=Diane Keaton, Goldie Hawn
Audrey Hurley=Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Hurley
Wells. the masters' names are taken from Disney movies, and Disney got them from source material (e.g. books) or other languages. Shere Khan, Rama, and Kaa are all characters in Jungle Book. Zazu is from Lion King. and Kerchak is from Tarzan. and yes, the design and masters are heavilly inspired by Gekiranger.
The entire team's colors were going to be:Red, Blue, Green, Yellow, Pink, Cyan, Orange, Violet, Navy, Gold, Silver and Bronze.
Other than those posted, the animal and planet pairings were going to be:
The mecha would've been named after after a few Greek zodiac symbols:
Sagittarius: Tiger, Ape, Wolf, Eagle, Python
Gemini: Rabbit, Boar, Ox, Horse
Libra: Dragon, Ram, Porcupine
Like always, credit to Acatl for his templates, clothes, and hairs. Everything else is mine.
--all the rest of the pixel images I have are just nonsense, they have nothing to do with toku, so I'll just not post them--
Awesome sprites once again
Awesome work on your Rangers, Taiko!!!
I LOVE the Juunishi Sentai Archanger!
