Witch Force 5 by Yamino Witch Force 5 by Yamino
Sneak preview concept art! Everything is subject to change.

They are based on traditional sentai teams, but with the stereotypical genders inverted. I plan to give them slightly different bodytypes once I flesh the characters out as individuals.

They are bsed on the 5 Sacred Elements of Wicca (which are basically the same as Captain Planet, lol.) Their chest and belt symbols indicate their respective direction and symbol.

Red: Fire, South, Athame/Sword
Blue: Water, West, Chalice
Yellow: Air, East, Wand
Pink: (Should be white, but I want a pink one damnit) Spirit, Center, Crystal
Green: Earth, North, Paton (engraved plate)

And a MYSTERY PERSON TO BE REVEALED WAY LATER

Ooooh, is the mystery purple? I like purple! I've seen purple used for spirit, as well, though :/ Hmm, what would work for purple...

Love Sister Claire, by the by. Just finished my second runthrough iof the story so far, and have now started reading The Rose of Versailles. So far, I have not been disappointed.

I feel like they should be in Bayonetta, a witch themed Sentai now that is ridiculous

When I and my little brother were a white (or black or silver or gold) was typically used as the sixth ranger, so no, you got that right. For the record though, the one time when blue was that light, the wearer was female, so I'd darken it a bit when you do the final designs. Allso, yellow has been used by both genders a few times, so you could go either way with that one.

I really like the color palette, how *these particular* red, green, yellow, and blue go together. I also enjoy how you blended silhouettes of sentai and the stereotypical witch--I look forward to seeing what the hat does. But, as a Wiccan, I kind of expected another element (lol) of their costumes to be an occult reference. Like, maybe instead of a pentacle on their chests, the alchemical symbols for each element. Or zodiac symbols on the cape. I don't know how much individualization is 'allowed'/typical in the sentai genre, but that would allow more sneaky occult references. (if you're looking for sneaky occult references to put in there, I'd be happy to supply, but I also believe in your ability to google things) These witches are gonna show up in Sister Claire, right? Because I can't wait for them to make an appearance!

Yes, they will! And I'll admit that part of the reason they all have one unified symbol was to give them more of a team logo (although other witches will use it too) and because it saves me time. Alchemical symbols aren't always very simple, and they are also hard to draw from memory. I can work faster if I use an easy symbol I already know.

You'll probably like the mystery ranger, though. ;)

I would like to see, what they would look like with longer boots.
And it might be irrelevant but those kind of hats do not just look silly, but are unpractical too.
(I understand supers wanna look cool but when their costumes causes more problems than their enemies...
Oh well, their problem, i will laugh internally to their silliness.)

I haven't actually shown what those hats do, but they are not as impractical as they look. I just don't want to reveal everything before they show up in the story.

It didn't apply to the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers translation either, when they decided to make Yellow a girl. XD

But I haven't even revealed what these rangers do. For practical reasons, they don't wear skirts. ;)

I am so tempted to spend half a minute writing a brief history behind Mighty Morphin, but alas I won't.

I can't see what they will end up do in the comic nd if I'm not mistaken? is that a Indian crown upon their heads?
