Villamax by stratosmacca Villamax by stratosmacca
Power Rangers Lost Galaxy remains my favorite PR series to date. Not only did it continue the darker tone set by In Space, but it expanded upon it. It still ranks as the PR series with the highest death toll (where else can you see a Pink Ranger die in battle?), and has some of the most intriguing storylines, characters and villains.

Enter Villamax, a noble warrior we first meet on the planet Onyx. There, he saved the villainous Trakeena from a severe beating at the hands of a mob, and gallantly offered to train her, turning her from a spoiled princess into a hardened warrior. Because of his training, she was more than capable of taking over her father's throne after his death at the hands of the Red Galaxy Ranger.

Villamax stayed on with Trakeena, serving as her personal bodyguard while her forces battled the Rangers.

Drawing was done by myself with colors by the amazingly talented :icontonywash:.

Awesome job, definitely one of the best power rangers antagonist of all time.

Villamax was a villain who wasn't really a villain. He was only fighting the rangers because of his loyalty to Trakeena as her knight and teacher. He immediately knows when things went to far and he didn't really preach about honor but rather he let it show through his actions. I miss these kinds of characters in the later seasons. No depth to them.

I don'y known about the hole romance thing, but he was a true noble warrior.  See history of power ranger lost a galaxy to see a good way to describe him.

One of the most beautiful fan-art for PR I ever saw) I saw it long ago, but, met here only now. And, really wonderful character, of course, he's not an evil villain, he just fall in love... And Takeena wasn't too bad too, she just accidentally changed. Also, his friend Kegler was very nice guy)

One of the most noble and honorable villains in Power Rangers. Just awesome. Villamax would be proud.

Lost Galaxy was also my favorite Power Rangers series. Not only because it showed a deeper level to the villains, but also because it had my favorite character from any Power Rangers series. That character would be the original Magna Defender. While other Rangers were either purely good and heroic, Magna Defender was everything the Rangers weren't. He was a vengeful, fallen hero who had suffered the greatest loss that no other Ranger could possibly understand, and cared nothing of who gets in the way of his revenge. I really wish he had stuck around a little longer.

Villamax was also my favorite character from this series and one of my favorite PR villains overall. The drawing you made did him justice. Great job.l

I just recently started watching some of the old power rangers to prod at my nostalgic side. Villamax is by far one of my favorite villains next to Ecliptor and Astronema.

Thanks for helping fuel my nostalgia!

I think I made the sword up, actually, based on the 'winged' motif on Villamax's chest.

This guy and Magna Defender... the closest Power Rangers' have ever come to catching the true spirit of a dark Sentai character.
Villamax actually had more depth than most of the rangers, and Defender became a full-blown 'death seeker!'

Power Rangers In Space still holds priority over Lost Galaxy for me, only because of the Ninja Turtles cameo (I mean, that's the ultimate 80s vs 90s dream match!).

Good to see some Villamax love on DA!

One of my favorite Lost Galaxy villains next to Trakeena and Deviot. He was a very noble warrior who kept his word and stood by in what he believed in. I loved it when he stood up against Trakeena when she was attacking the people of Terra Venture and using the Sting Wingers as suicide bombers to attack the colony. although she killed him right after that. He is still awesome.

He's not, if you haven't seen it yet. He looks awesome, but his role in Lost Galaxy was filled by Furio, so he's the weakest of Captain Zahab's generals and the first one to die.

Indeed. The death toll of named, active characters (not just monsters) is VERY high:

-Furio, an evil general who blows up in a suicide-bomber rampage.
-Treacheron, a semi-honorable general who is killed by the red ranger, Leo, in a fair fight.
-Zika, the Magna Defender's son (that's right, they actually killed off a child in this series!)
-The Magna Defender himself (killed off while saving Terra venture from a volcano he had set up)
-The pink ranger, Kendrix! That said, she is resurrected at the end of the series, and is seen in the cross-over next season.
-Scorpius, the father of Trakeena and, for a time, the main villain.
-Villamax, and honorable villain; no need for me to explain further on this page.
-Captain Mutiny and his crew, killed by the scorpion stinger.
-Deviot, who merges with Trakeena. Trakeena herself wouldn't die until the next season's cross-over.
-And finally, in spite of dying twice before, the Psycho rangers. They finally STAY dead.

I remember when the original PR was about to start. I programmed my time to watch the first episode. I did not like it, though.

However, I dunno why I started watching Lost Galaxy, and I fell in love.

It must be there was a continuing story, and the fact not every episode was the monster-defeat-grow-zords-defeat formula, with at least an episode without any monsters at all.

Besides all that, I cannot even begin to praise the work you did on this. Perfect lines, perfect shading. Nothing more needs to be said.

Faved!

I thought Lost Galaxy was the start of the downturn for the PR series but I will admit that characters such as Villamax and the death of a ranger made it better than some of the other piss-poor productions.

That is a beautiful image. You are right Tony Washington is very talented, Just look at those clouds. I don't remeber that power Rangers series very well, but no matter how dark it was for me no power rangers series is dark enough, and that's because its directed at the kids. But PR has potential to be a real drama story, and an interesting one at that. I wish they would make a 1hr a week drama series out of Power Rangers. Something like Battle Star Galactica.

You rock!
Lost Galaxy was the best both in plotlines and characters. Villamax was a very cool character (even if he was an updated Ecliptor-type) who was a cool match for the heroes and his fellow villains.
Your pic captures his strength and nobility dead on.
Makes me want to do some Lost galaxy homage although if you look closely enough you'll see it in my work.
