Wow. Got onto the DBZ Collections! A big THANKYOU to Tom and Wade!
Anyway, work is well underway for my next tribute, watch out for it! ;)

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!

same shit as the show.

nothing new

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

Hey Moron.
It's quite clear you don't like DBZ, so why did you watch?
It was also quite clear that this was a TRIBUTE to the show and was also clear that it was a remake. Did you expect anything else? Idiot.

Anyway, regardless of this, if you reviewed on the QUALITY of the flash, you would NOT give a 0, especially if you gave graphics and sound a 10. This is quite retarded.
What is even further retarded is your review. You typed 2 words, it gave no reason as to why it deserved a 0 or why you didn't like it. A review that actually used some INTELLECT would've gave reasons.
"nothing new"? Well, I've already explained why, and you should've realised that anyway BEFORE watching anyway.

Therefore it is quite clear that you, sir, are a fuckwit.

Now, begone, fool!


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

Watch out for Vegeta SSJ!


Rated 5 / 5 stars

WOW this is good!!!!

man this is great i mean perfect to the cartoon in everyway even the lines were exact but too bad no voices i know it would sound gay anyway but i think that was cool art man especially freehand coo if possible can you tell me where to get the program to do this i been wanting to try but cant find it thax good luck with the rest

People find this review helpful!
Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

At least you understand my reason for not putting in voices! ^_^
The program is Macromedia Flash. It's a program you have to buy for like £100+ if you find it cheap. Try or to look for some deals on Flash.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Ok, lets review..........

1st and foremost, good flash. Nothing of any real negativity to comment on BUT just a couple small suggestions:
1. For your next piece try and incorporate sound into your movie (with Vegeta, right?)
2.Fluidise the animation a little more, just to take away the occasional jump that occurred in the Goku movie.
3. For freehand animation it's real good but I must say the arms were (slightly) out of biggie, jus a little constructive critisism.

Oh, and if you feel pissed off that I had the gall to suggest you aint the worlds foremost flash animator, don't go commenting that I haven't submitted any pieces myself. I don't do the artistic creation thing, moreso the observation thing. Good luck with the next movie, hopefully I'll be able to throw down a perfect score next time round.

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

Hey man, no problem! Your review is good. I wouldn't get pissed at a review that gives reasons why it didn't get a higher score. You give constructive critisism, that's good. I only get pissed off at the retarded reviews that just say I suck, but reviews like this are perfectly fine! :D

Did you mean sound as in voices? I've explained before my reason for not having them due to synching issues and tackyness (in my opinion, although it's brilliant if done correctly), as I am not the world's best flash animator. ;)

Be rest assured that the animation in my next movie will be much better and have better drawings too. :)

Thanks for the good review!
