I prefer the newer style anime art because it's a lot prettier to me. :lol: I love the detail in the hair, for instance.
Yeah, that's what I meant :lol:

I understand. The detail in the hair is awesome! I don't hate it. But I think I prefer simpler over detail in some cases and the original art in Dragonball really appeals to me. I draw it fairly well and should upload some stuff here but I'm laaazy.


If they kept using the older style from late DB, I would love the show even more. :)

Well, elyas11 never said he preferred the newer art style, just that he wanted to make a tribute to that scene, "not to make it better, just make it in the newer style".

It looks like Dragon Ball though, and being different doesn't always mean it's a bad thing.
James Teal (Animerica 1996) wrote:When you think about it, there are a number of similarities between the Chinese-inspired Son Goku and that most American of superhero icons, Superman. Both are aliens sent to Earth shortly after birth to escape the destruction of their homeworlds; both possess super-strength, flight, super-speed, heightened senses and the ability to cast energy blasts. But the crucial difference between them lies not only in how they view the world, but in how the world views them.

Superman is, and always has been, a symbol for truth, justice, and upstanding moral fortitude–a role model and leader as much as a fighter. The more down-to-earth Goku has no illusions about being responsible for maintaining social order, or for setting some kind of moral example for the entire world. Goku is simply a martial artist who’s devoted his life toward perfecting his fighting skills and other abilities. Though never shy about risking his life to save either one person or the entire world, he just doesn’t believe that the balance of the world rests in any way on his shoulders, and he has no need to shape any part of it in his image. Goku is an idealist, and believes that there is some good in everyone, but he is unconcerned with the big picture of the world…unless it has to do with some kind of fight. Politics, society, law and order don’t have much bearing on his life, but he’s a man who knows right from wrong.

The old style for me is the DB to DBZ Namek arc art style. It's very well drawn and well animated in the anime.

The big difference is the way the face is drawn and the detail in the muscles. I don't understand why people prefer the newer art as it barely resembles the original dragonball art in the manga.
Not much sense in buying or enjoying something if it's for the same reason as what you already have on your self. Dragon Ball's art was always changing. It will always change. This applies to everything in the world of art.

I like the older art as much as the newer one. But for some reason, the newer has a more catchy feeling to it. At least, I like drawing the newer style more. One thing I find annoying is that the collar bones are gone LOL but if you read the manga, they're even gone in there (around Cell-Buu saga) So even Akira Toriyama changed it, and in my opinion, if Akira did it, it's good.

I am a great great fan of Akira Toriyama's works! So I wanted to redo my favorite scene from the whole DBZ saga in the newer style.
I know mine will never surpass the older style, it's just as a tribute :)

Oh, I know. I have nothing against that at all. he did a great job. I just am nitpickey about it and every time I get a chance to rant about it I do lol.

You are right. I would like to see some of the later stuff drawn in the older style one of these days. I guess I could try but I want to see others other than me always doing that haha.

It was a great tribute and looks very pro, sorry that I seemed like I didn't like it because I did. I hate those big pecs without the collar bone as well.

It's definitely not perfect at all but I wanted to try this any ways in the "older" style. I did not reference the picture until I shaded it and it was all drawn with a mouse on paint on my new laptop. I don't have photoshop on it yet but I was really wanting to try this out! :lol:

I like the face, it almost looks like a Kid Goku (DB not GT) going Super Saiyan. :)

Thanks. I still messed up a bit but I am somewhat satisfied with how it turned out.

I actually despise My Little Pony now. Not because I dislike the show itself or anything, but it's fucking everywhere and a lot of its fans are just annoying. It's like it's a goddamn meme that I can't get away from, even if I've never watched the show.

I second what Piccolo Daimao said... I'm starting to furiously hate it since it's everywhere...

I don't really care about them either way.
But the amount of hate they create is incredibly amusing to me.

Vegeta making out with a pony is the last thing that I really need to see today :| ! I never watch the show (I don't plan too) but it seem like it's fan base has spawn crazy obsessed fans that seem to ship the show with anything.

Lil'Lemmy - LOVING your stuff! It's awesome! Love the Goten pictures too ^.^ Congratulations on getting a graphics tablet ^.^ They're pretty awesome ne?

----------

Well! After 3 weeks of having a break from drawing (was meant to be 2, but I just needed some more time. Got struck by a horrible artist block!) I finally drew something again last night. It's not the greatest. It was pretty rough and stuff looks really unfinished and proportions are totally wacked! But it's a start after such a break. Can't help but laugh at Pikachu's forehead!

I did a bit of this on LiveStream (my first ever go on it) and it turned out okay. Didn't last very long as I got so distracted by people talking.

Image


And uuuh, this is something I was working on before my mini break.

It's sadly not that great. Got a lot of things to fix (especially his hand). Pretty much the gist of it is:
Goten is... kinda like an assassin in some ways? And he's killing another character (who I haven't finished drawing yet)(Style is slightly different. I guess this is why I went on a break. I was having style issues) Don't ask. It was one inspired by one of those crazily AU fanfictions. You know how they are.... But this one is truly awesome! Loved how crazy it was :3

What if Frieza accidentally hit Goku's "dragonballs" down there instead of his chin with his death beam?
