In Goku's Wake by ZedEdge In Goku's Wake by ZedEdge
This was a big one.
I started this drawing using :iconlastscionz: Chamba's art as inspiration by getting into a lot of detail while retaining the cartoony anatomy. As well as subtley adding multiple layers of cel shading to create a smooth look. Using such thin lineart was something I was unfamiliar with and it was fun seeing how differently the other layers interacted with it.

I really wanted to get this right so before getting into any clean work, I roughly coloured and shaded the entire picture about three times as well as playing around with what would appear in the background and the direction of the light source. A lot of work, but it really helped.

I'm really happy with it and I hope you enjoy it.

Yeah, that's usually not a very safe place to be, no matter how angelic he looks at the time.

hehe glad you like, the action of the scene, the pose, your personal style to goku, since toryama's style is so strong, there's not many DB or DBZ fanart that actually looks awesome when done with the artists particular style, but yours did, you inspired me to do some DBZ stuff!
