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!

It was a very nice flash!

Ok, for your graphics it was bugging me when he says "RAAAAAAAA!!!!" and you see him turn around his face is a bit off. The sound at the beggining bugged me to, you could have also found some voices of them talking, it would have made a huge difference!
Overall:

**** - Great!


Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

Frame by frame and my first animation, I think the 3 frames worked well enough for that bit though(much better frame by frame in Vegeta SSJ though).

What do you mean the sound at the beginning? You mean the song? I think Cha la head cha la is a cool song!

And I couldn't find sounds of them talking, and even if I did I've explained why I wouldn't put them in.

Thanks for the review.

Loved evey moment of it!

I remember the days of watching DBZ, but that was ages ago now! Would have got a perfect score if you had Goku's voice in it. I hate the other peoples voices, but if you had Goku's it would have been perfect, also if there was a fight scene between Goku and Frieza.


Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

Again, I've explained why there is no voices in it (that's it, I am putting an FAQ in Vegeta SSJ). But thanks anyway. ^_^

if frieza was the one pissed off it be funnier

it would have been a lot funnier if Frieza was the one being pissed off, not poor Goku. Anyways its COOL because i hate Goku too!heheheh. Gohan and chibi Trunks Rock!


Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

Um, it was supposed to be like the show though...
And I don't even understand what you meant in your second sentence... you hate Goku "too"? What the?

Erm, I'm glad you 'enjoyed' it?
