(Sorry followers, I had to re-submit this there was a big mistake needing fixing)

And yes Piccolo is totally Batman.

Now with mp4 access I can upload the video in a much better quality. After getting some constructive feed back from the community, I have made some large changes. The addition of a longer ending and some re-drawn scenes.

Still having trouble with animating the mouths, any advice would be nice. As for the artwork and animation, you'll notice that this episode has many "moments" that are heavily influenced by different events in the show. You may also notice many simular looking stances and poses of the characters as I did use references from the show when drawing. I didn't feel like doing the background mattes.

I watched DBZ again for the first time in over a decade and I was just struct with such nostalgia, I had to do something. The idea for this episode I had when I was a kid but never had the means to make it. Even now I still feel that I have lots of learning to do. I am slowly trying to get better at flash and this was a big learning experience. I know there is a lot of DBZ material on Newgrounds, but this was just something I needed to make for myself.

Overall a good outing in the world of flash. I can see that there are some things you have difficulty with, however. For example, leaning too heavily on static references influenced your character designs to the point that at times Sage looked like a mix between, Cell, 18, and Majin-Buu. Within those mistakes, Sage began to look like a man, with overly heavy brow, strong jawline, and lower lip all apparent. The transitional effects took too long, taking away some of the suspense from the action, which was somewhat slow itself. I can see that hands and 3/4 face views aren't your strong points (everyone has trouble with em though), because at time the faces seemed too fat and short, and the fingers looked like sticks. Keep with character designs for now, and focus on facial symmetry and finding usable fingers, and you're good to go. Don't worry about time, you'll improve slowly but surely.

Yeah thats alway rough doing hands and angled faces. I acutally used Buu and 18 as references for Sage, good eye on that one. I've always had trouble with hands and mouths too. I've gotten several comments about Sage starting to look like a guy. Whats interesting is when designing her I didn't want her to be a frail, stereotypical big boobed stick arms anime girl. I wanted her to have muscle, be built, but also be sexy, but not like 'in your face' with it. Which is a hard mix. When the fighting started she slowly started morphing into more of a monster in the end, I'm not really sure where that came from, I guess my tablet has a mind of its own.
