Green Ranger 2011 Concept Art by Jarein Green Ranger 2011 Concept Art by Jarein
Me and a buddy of mine were catching up and somehow Power Rangers came up in our conversation of the "good ol days" when we were kids. Of course, we both agreed, the coolest of any of the Rangers past,present AND future was the Green Ranger of the original MMPR run in the mid 90's.

When we decided to check out fanart online, we noticed one thing about all the artwork out there that tried to update his look for the modern era.

There really wasnt any.

Sure I've seen some with armor like the batsuit in TDK, and a bunch with massive Ultra Super Saiyan muscles, but not many that tried to tinker with the look.

So I opted to update the look myself. Now right off the bat, I avoided trying to alter or change anything iconic. His Dragon Shield and Helmet are virtually unchanged, and his gloves and boots have very small additions, in added padding in just a couple spots.

The majority of the changes lie in the suit itself. I drew alot of inspiration from Samus Aran's Zero suit, seeing as it functioned alot like Sentai/Ranger suits in providing protection with minimal hindrance to acrobatics and movement. I also took in cues from the hero costumes worn in various live action Marvel movies - especially the flight suit/uniforms worn in the upcoming X-men First Class. I liked how adding pronounced seams along the edges of color boundaries on the suit gave the illusion of added protection and streamlined the look.

You'll also note that I used two very different shades of green for the majority of the suit. My goal was to add a tad bit more maturity to the look with the very dark green, while staying true to the series by maintaining the lighter green from canon.

Nice! I can see where Bat in the Sun got the idea for the suit they had made. Did they hit you up regarding your design? It's awesome.

Would you be willing to do the rest of the mighty morphin era rangers in this style?

I really like this design.
My buddy and I have been toying with the idea of writing a reboot script for Power Rangers. I might have to keep this in mind!

i love this... so hard...
i did something like this back in 2008... but i never got to coloring... or finishing the fanfic to go with it... so it's nice to see someone doing non-armored rangers redux.

Wow! I like your take on a mature, current design of this suit! You're right, there really aren't any recreations out there that still manage to capture the spirit of the costume like this pic does. I'd very much like to see the rest of the originals done in this style.

Ah, I loved power rangers when I was a kid. I remember reading Pokemon x Power Rangers fics when I was young also. It was funny.

Another thing, just a tip, you could've colored the nose rim (the part that goes from nose to eye brows of the helmet) silver like the Dino Thunder episode when green ranger appears in Tommys' dream.

Dude, this is definately my favorite version of a fans' take on the green ranger suit. You found the exact way to balance the classic look with a modern, realistic touch. I applaud your design man, keep up the ggod work. PS This would make an awesome cosplay.

nostalgia is just one of those great moments of true inspiration to revisit a simpler and happier time. I'm glad I gave you some inspiration to fuel another piece of artwork for you. I'll check in and pay you the same respect and give some honest and helpful feedback. thanks!

yeah, though i'm not really a fan of him becoming the white ranger (which i feel okay back in the time, but right now its kinda awkward). But i'm more of a fan of Jason than Tommy if you ask me...

Awesome. On a side note if you enjoy power rangers you can go to Thatguywiththeglasses.com and watch videos by Linkara. Hes reviewing all the power rangers series and its great and interesting. Assuming you didn't already know about him.

thanks man. actually now that you mention it, Linkara was the catalyst in the conversation me and my buddy had that led up to our Ranger rant. its crazy how much about the show I had forgotten about until I saw his breakdowns and summaries. Hell even the behind the scenes drama he mentions is shocking and really adds to my respect to the writers who worked around those hiccups.
