Here it is, finally complete.
i started this some weeks ago, but it took me long to finally decide to dither than nimbus, and it took less than half an hour, i've improved my dithering i think.
this is a tribute to dragon ball's awesomeness, and a challenge to myself concerning pixel art technical aspects (dithering, anti-aliasing, colours, outlining): it is a remake of one of my oldest works [dA link]
many people still like that old one, but i couldn't look at it any more, so some weeks ago i decided to prove i can do tons better, and i'm quite happy with the final result.
reference official art here:
differences are minimal, as my focus wasn't the dynamic pose of the character, nor changing light sources or other aspects, but purely my pixelart "technique" if i can say that...
edit: used adam's tip and now it's 15 colours + transparency.
edit 2: rewrote that text a bit.
also, i'm surprised to see this in the weekly showcase, people shouldn't be rating it so high, and i really mean it...
