Manga March Madness : DragonBall
For today I thought I would do probably some of the most famous characters in manga and anime. Today I chose DragonBall. I thought I would do drawings of Son Goku and Bulma. I always liked the humor and the design of DragonBall. Bulma is still to date one of the cutest anime chicks today. I have only read a few issues of DragonBall, but I found them very enjoyable. Akira Toriyama is a manga genius. I would go as far as to say he is up there with Osamu Tezuka as one of the most influential mangakas ever. If we did not have DragonBall, we would not have Naruto, Bleach, or One Peice. He may not have made Shonen manga, but he definitely mastered it. He also was one of the current artist to create the current format for Shonen style manga.
This drawing was fairly simple for me. I think I got the shadows fairly well. I did a little bit of research on how old Goku and Bulma was during this time. According to what I found Goku was 11 or 12 around this time. Bulma was quite a bit older at 16. So I did a little research on kids these ages.
Anyhow I’m actually very happy with how this turned out
