If you liked this animation, please give me a review, I try and reply to them all, so give me a review to let me know what you think, thanks.

Well this is my first submission to newgrounds and my first true animation now don't switch off and blam, cos this is my first animation, this isn't like the crappy first animations most submit! This is fully drawn, and well animated!
I started this in around October and throughout this animation you can see my drawing skills improving.

If you're a DBZ fan you'll LOVE this, if you're a neutral and decide to vote on how well done this is you'll find this to be good, if you hate DBZ and blam anything with DBZ in it then please, leave now.

This was a college project and we were originally supposed to do a storyboard of 4-5 (original or based on a tv show or movie of you choice, I chose a DBZ tribute) scenes and put into Flash and add some sound, smooth animation and tweens, well I done over 50 scenes with many sounds and music and I got a merit (which means I showed initiative and went beyond the set goals that had to be met) pass for this, it really is that good.

This is when Goku turns SSJ for the first time on Planet Namek, this is from the time Krillin gets blown up until the time Goku goes SSJ and Frieza is wondering: WTF?!

The music is from the Japanese and English versions of Dragonball Z. It features the original Jap theme song "Cha-la Head Cha-la" (used as main theme for this animation) by Kageyama Hironobu as well as the SSJ fight theme from the Jap DBZ. The other music is "SSJ Transformation" and "Rock the Dragon" by Bruce Falcouner. There are sound effects for lightning, rocks cracking and wave sounds and I can't remember where I found those, but credit to the creators of them.

OK some specifications for best performance:
If your PC is under 1000MHz or you are running many programs turn down the quality so the music is synched right.
If you computer is 1000MHz or higher then it should run perfectly.

Special Thanks go to John Butler, my 2D animation lecturer for helping me with the preloader and teaching me flash and also Akira Toriyama for creating DBZ!

Now, on with the show! ENJOY!

Plz make your own series..

I mean, start with your own story of DBZ? It seems that you have the skills to do it... it isn't 100 %, more like 90 % like the original serie... Anyways, most of the parts were very well animated. 4/5 (little hint, draw more frames, then it would be really smooth and maybe get in the top 50)


Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

Yeah this was a replica of probably the best part of the DBZ series. I will do a few more tributes before making my own series I do plan on making a comedy DBZ animation based on the fanmangas by Darci-san who has done some funny Trunks animations (making him out to be gay, it is funny though) so thanks for the C&C.

AWSOME!!! IF this is your 1st then that is brilliant!!! I got an old goku goes SSJ 1st time and it sux :p It's all drawn in one layer with paint tool, so the file size is huge! about 6500kb.

Coool

Very nice reproduction. Though you could add in some voices since you pretty much followed the shows dialoge to the letter, Oh, and goku was STRUCK by one of the lightning bolts when he transformed, it would be cool to add that in as well

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

I could've added voice, but i decided to op for subtitles as no-one I know can do a decent impression of any of the characters. I don't think Gouk was stuck by one of those bolts as to make this I had to study that part of the show and the lightning always struck behind him.
