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!


Really Good

I really liked this one man. I hope that you make another movie because it's looks like you are really good (even though this is a tribute).

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

Don't worry, I have another on the way, Vegeta SSJ, which is gonna be like 5 minutes long and much better than this in every way!
My 2nd tribute will be much more impressive! Watch out for it!

Hmm pretty kool

evan thoth that was a segment already made it was like the animatior did ot them self being able to draw that good is a talent write some of ur own stuff and i think u can get well known

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

I'm glad you liked my flash.
I don't intend on doing my own stuff quite yet. 3 more tributes then I will do my own stuff. An original series I hope to do.

Not bad... a copied segment of DBZ. Not original.

Good flash... you can tell however that it was copied from the show almost precisely. If it's your first work... then well done. Make a few more flashes of classic DBZ moments like this one, and you may just make a name for yourself.


Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

Well, it was supposed to be copied, so you can't really fault me for that. :)
It was so precise as I am a bit of a perfectionist and tried to get as close as I could to the show.
I am nearing completion of my next tribute, Vegeta SSJ, and after that I have Gohan SSJ2 and Goku SSJ3 planned.

Anyway, I'm glad you liked my work.

Give some credit!

Cmon guys! Give him some credit! This is his 1st animation and it is really good for a 1st go! Yea theres room for improvement. But still, the effort put into this is really good!!! You get my 5!

And making a remake of a scene you like is not stupid. I'd say its good practice! Hopefully has he gets better, he will make some cool stuff for us ;)

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

Thanks for your justified review, Aran!
And since I made this so long ago you know my skills have improved as you well know ;) Vegeta SSJ shall be finished soon!

dude wtf

you just copied a scene from DBZ.. your drawings look nice, I'd say you have the skill/talent but for gods sake do something original with it!

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

Oh, I copied a scene from DBZ? You know what! I never realised! I thought this was completely original! I even said in my AUTHOR'S COMMENTS that it was a copy to make sure everyone KNEW that it was original!

But enough of the sarcasm.

It's a tribute, it may be a "copy" but I never denied it was a copy. I openly admitted in my author's comments it was a copy, you must not have read them, eh?
At least I didn't trace a video file, now if I did that, it would be a reason to rate lower, but now, you haven't got that reason.

You gave a 0 overall, why? Did I not put any effort whatsoever into my flash? No. I actually put a lot of effort into it, so your 0 is VOID.

And I'm using my skill and talent to make ANOTHER tribute to the show which is the first time Vegeta goes SSJ! And it will be the same as the show, but it won't deserve a 0, ooh no.

Now begone, fool!
