So I'm a big Akira Toriyama fan, especially Dragonball & DBz, and I was really pissed when I suddenly couldn't get Viz stuff easily here in the UK... (it is possible if you know the right mail order website, if you're interested ask me for a link).
Anyway, my one and only DBz fanart to date... and maybe ever (you would not believe how much fiddling I did with his arms, and they're still not quite right!!)
TITLE: Super Saijin Goku
ARTIST: Lady Flame
GENRE: Dragonball Z - Fanart - Martial Arts
IMAGE TYPE: Traditional/Digital

First time I've tried to draw any Dragonball, and I don't think it's too bad for a first attempt, especially since it's anime style rather than manga style which is definitely harder to draw.
One thing I'm not happy with is the forearms!! Usually it's the hands, but I'm quite pleased with the way the hands have turned out, but the forearms are too skinny. I did improve them in Photoshop, (yes, hard to believe but I did make improvements *lol*), and just generally cleaned and touched up a few places. Then went back and redrew his forearms (again!!), and added a simple black background, with outer glow and satin SFX.
Drawn and coloured in pencil, touched up in PhotoShop.
