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!

Hey, pretty good!

Heh, that was a pretty nice animation you did there. It's better than most full character DBZ animations that are on here. The animation was pretty smooth, although some of the clothing and the aura on Goku could have been done a bit smoother or the frames a bit more extreme to show that his aura was really going as well as his clothing. The rest of your animation was done well though, especially the effects such as the waves and the "lighting" on Frieza.

Other than that small nitpick, I thought this was an excellent movie. One of the best full character DBZ animations and tributes here.

Yeah, I know waht you mean, although it got smoother towards the end. The framerate in the next animation will be smoother at 17fps.
Anyway, glad you liked it! :D

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

Rated 5 / 5 stars


I liked that.For the next movie you make instead of making vegeta go super saiyan you should have goku going ss3 for the first time.

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

Hey, I wanna do them all in order, my Vegeta animation looks better than this one, so when i get to goku goes SSJ3 it'll look even better again! ;)
I'll try and get the 4 best ssj tributes finished before Xmas. ;)


Rated 5 / 5 stars


You have real talent keep it up.

P.S Please don't say ssj or super saiya-jin thats what they say in dbgt.In dbz it's ss or super saiyan.I'm just sayin this because it realy bugges me when people do that.

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

Er no. SSJ is super saiya-jin which is in fact the japanese way of saying super saiyan. It is SSJ. In English you would say american, in japan you would says americ-jin or something along those lines, you get my drift.
So, SSJ is correct.
