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!



man this reminded me so mucn of the good old days...nice i loved watching DBZ all the time, well nice job and i hope you can keep making DBZ flashes but with action in them with your own storyline if you can...anyway gret job once again...and reply if you can ^_^

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

I am working on more DBZ flashes! Next is Vegeta SSJ! (Been working on it for TOO long! lol) Watch out for it!

good but not

its good and all but it needs more action and hie needs 2 svear come on this iz new grounds a porn site but the but its good so who mead that plz email me

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

It was supposed to be a recreation of the time Goku goes SSJ so there isn't supposed to be that much action, and no swearing.

Judging from your review you may not know that Newgrounds is NOT a porn site! It's a flash animation site.

And I MADE this.
I will not email you... (your email isn't even in your profile right now anyway)

pretty nice

but voices would have made this a 10, but dont get me wrong, i really liked it.i read your last response, and im looking foward to Vegeta SSJ, Nice job, and good luck with Vegeta SSJ

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

Thanks for the review! It's good you read previous responses. As long as you know why there were no voices.
As for Vegeta SSJ, I did actually consider putting in the sound clip from the show as I now have means of doing so but, I tried it out to test it to see how it is but while some scenes are in synch some are well off and that would require me to edit and change a lot of symbols and scenes to match up to it. For my works after Vegeta SSJ I shall add the voices and synch them as I work on the flash.
Also I'll hopefully have those done in a shorter time than Vegeta SSJ has taken! lol.


you got:my 5!,and my 10!(10in reveiws 5 in rating)i like the drawings and the sound was good and for all you people out there that hate this Congratiulations! you got:2 years of my blams(ill wright there names down so i remember),0s in reveiws and 0s in ratings for 9 months!

well i loved it keep up the good work!10 and 5 for you!
see ya!

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

I'm glad you liked this. Vegeta SSJ on the way!
Thanks for the review.

Pretty nice... pretty nice...

I give you props, good drawings but not enough animation. Next time, make some more tweens and frame by frames. Good start though! DBZ FOREVA! O_O

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

I tweened all that needed tweened there. And Vegeta SSJ has a lot more fbf than this. Thanks for the review.
