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!

not bad...

This was pretty well done...nice job for a first flash movie. I really hate it that you had the American music throughout the entire movie though, that was annoying. The japanese music was way better. And use some origonality. This is an EXACT copy of a DBZ episode that i've seen many times before. Other than that, nice work.

Thanks, well it was meant to be close to the actual thing anyway :P. But when i've done a few more and my Flash skills improve I will make something original. ;)

congrats!

Wow, you really overcame the odds, both a DBZ movie AND a first submission, yet it isn't just stick figures yelling "POOP!" and firing power beams at each other. I must say it's quite refreshing. Good art, especially so for a first time! I hope people score this one fairly, it deserves it.

Very Innovative

That was cool now check out my movies ( I like how you put on the Japanese music on it also)


Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

I know that at the time you were on NG you never made a movie,you only imported music videos into Flash...

You lied!

I'm a huge DBZ fan and I didn't love it! I vote 0! Hahaha! Jk. It was pretty impressive. I was scared for a second when I saw your preloader and how nice it looked, I thought your drawings would be better than mine, but I'm safe. Whoo. Sorry, I'm not trying to brag. But the animation was really good, definitely for your first time. I need to learn to animate better. That's usually the problem with my movies. But yeah, that was not bad and I'm gonna vote good on it. I enjoyed it too. Wouldn't mind seeing something else from you. Good job. I say yes to Hollywood.

I'm actually worried that you are under the impression that your drawings look better than mines, not meaning to sound big-headed but, your drawings suck in comparison...

AMAZING

I must say, that was one of the best animated flashes I have seen here on Newgrounds. You captured that entire segment almost flawlessly. Someone with your ability to draw and make the animation so realistic (referring to the original cartoon of course) is just mind blowing. If I could, I would give this flash a 10, but seeing as how the rates only go to 5, that's what I'll do.

Great work, and keep it up.

I'm glad you liked it so much! :D
