The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers is a franchise originally produced by Saban Entertainment. The live-action series involves a group of kids who morph into superheroes known as Rangers, each named after a specific color and capable of superpowers. The show was so popular in the late 1990s and early in the twenty-first century that it spawned everything from coloring books to costumes. Learning to draw Power Rangers isn't difficult once you've accustomed yourself to the costume designs.
Things You'll Need
- Colored pencils
- Sketch paper
- Gum Eraser
Use a reference photo if you need to. Drawing a Power Ranger isn't as difficult as drawing a human figure. The costume smooths away most of the details in the outline. Sketch just the costume outline first, getting the general shape of the body. The face mask is easier than human features because you will just draw a series of shapes and lines to form the helmet and face plate -- just a few simple pencil strokes.
Draw any insignia on the costume next. These vary depending upon which Power Ranger you've chosen to draw. The original Might Morphin Power Ranger has a shoulder pad chest protection element that you form by sketching an upside down triangle, with the bottom of the triangle forming the shoulder pads and the triangle point coming down to about stomach level.
Use your pencil to adding shading to the Power Rangers costume, then use the edge of a gum eraser to add smudges. Shade in the diagonal creases of the design with a soft lead pencil. Sketch in the boot tops with long V-shaped design and and the arm band on each arm. Keep all of your hard line light if you plan to add color.This will add a shiny effect to the Power Rangers costume.
Use colored pencils to finish your sketch. Apply them right over the shading, keeping the color lighter around the edges of any detail shading to help bring out the depth. Use an eraser around where the lead pencil and color pencil marks meet to help blend the two, weakening the hard lines in the sketch.
