I don't expect anyone here to recognize me, since I've unfortunately been virtually inactive since first joining up several months ago; I've been quite busy trying to develop and refine an original Tokusatsu themed series that's been in my head for years now, ironically even before I heard of the term Tokusatsu! Finally reached a point where I feel ready to start posting my early concepts and doodles, and hopefully will begin writing the series itself very soon! So here's the first of what I hope will be many conceptual designs for the central Tokusatsu characters of the series AdventDestiny [yes, the title of my series is the same as my username], greatly inspired by the likes of Kamen Rider, Super Sentai, and Garo. These are the Archetypes, men and women who have come to possess ancient elemental artifacts that were ultimately the source of all the various myths and legends of the gods of the ancient world. The colored sketch is Advent, a darkness themed Archetype, and one of the two central characters in the story; I was experimenting with colored pencils, tried to shade it too... sadly I picked the single worst color scheme to start out with! This gives a general idea of what Advent will probably look like once finalized, though I'm probably going to lose the blue color for the "soft" armor portions, I think a lighter shade of black or grey will work better. The right hand sketches are of Eclipse, the death Archetype, a femme fatale twin to Advent. Her armor is meant to be very creepy arachnid/skeleton themed, with a feminine "pigtail" tipped with a scorpion stinger. The left hand sketch, below Advent, is for a currently unnamed fire themed Archetype, a hot-head with an armor design inspired by the Phoneix [which I plan to reimagine as a more aggressive, Archaeopteryx like creature. More sketchs to come, hopefully leading to finalized designs!
