Finally got around to finishing this, little bits at a time. Been using it as warm-up/cool-down artwork for the last few days, and also just something to do while awaiting feedback from clients.
So... Pretty sure I got Dragonball Z out of my system for a while. 11"x17" print will probably be at my tables at future cons.
A lot of this one was fueled by looping the Dragon Ball Z Kai opening theme, so... you pretty much have to listen to it while you look at it. Because it is so awesomely cheesy in a melodramatic, thematic way: [link]
Also, re: lack of Chiaotzu – this is everybody's appearances as they were in the Cell Saga, which didn't really see Chiaotzu fighting at all, so I kept him out. Tien and Android 18 are really only here to fill out the composition.
Krillin's here because HE'S THE MAIN CHARACTER OF DRAGON BALL! DON'T FIGHT IT!
Dragon Ball and all related characters are ®/™ properties of Akira Toriyama, Toei Animation, et al.
