Dragonball Z: Son-Goku. Realism. by DjamilaKnopf Dragonball Z: Son-Goku. Realism. by DjamilaKnopf
Heeey, here is the Dragonball painting I promised a million years ago. It's finally finished. I tried to bring a bit more into the frame than just Son-Goku's face and I also tried to create something like a composition and lighting situation. I don't know if it worked, but I think it's okay. ^^

Ich finde du hast den Charakter Son Goku toll in deinen Stil übersetzt. 

Das Verspielte wird angedeutet durchs Lächeln.

It did more than working. I saw this picture in a facebook post today, via deviantart facebook site. Same went to me, i was raised up in a poor family, in a poor region of Hungary, my childhood was totally influenced by his deeds, i acted just like him in school. Nothing too fancy, just loved athletic and running, my friends even called me goku. Didn't like bullying, so i stood next to the weak, and i wouldn't do else.

I see a lot of arguement, about which anime character is stronger. Goku gave so much more, i saw in other animes. He was the champion of truth, normally, the strongest of its kind, but he was always willing to accept, if someone defeated him. It ssemed to me, he's a naive child, so far from human nature, but still close to the heart.

Hope my words didn't look too cheesy, hope You understand, what i mean.

Greetings from Hungary, and keep up this wonderful work, i'm always amazed by Your gallery!

Thank you for the kind words!
I absolutely agree. I strongly believe that we can learn so much from all kinds of things. Where many people argue that anime is just a form of entertainment, I've always seen more in it: lessons about personal growth, bravery, friendship...

If I may ask, what do you use for your digital art? Wacom tablet? Illustrator? Photoshop? I'm a very novice digital painter. I draw and color traditionally, but would like to dabble in digital art. What would you recommend? :)

I use Photoshop CS6 and a Wacom Intuos Pro. But I started out using Gimp and a Wacom Graphire. So free software and a cheap tiny tablet. Now you can get a Bamboo for around 50 bucks, which is ok if you want to try it out. So I'd recommend you grab that and a free programme (I heard Krita is pretty cool and I am sure there are tons of other ones out there) and start experimenting. It's not worth investing in professional software when you're not sure if digital painting is for you. Sure, there are tons of features in Photoshop that I wouldn't want to miss because I got so used to them, but it's mostly about you and how you handle the digital paint application. And most tutorials can be applied to all kinds of painting programmes once you know the basics. :) I hope that helps. Good luck!

I love this one so much! Too many realistic variations of Goku out there make him look too masculine, IMO. Not an easy feat but, I think you captured Goku perfectly in your realistic rendition! He looks like an adult, yet still has that innocent youthful appearance that I associate him with! I think that face would match his Japanese voice perfectly! Great job!

I know I already said this before, but: Great job! Literally. Glorious perfection.

Have you ever contemplated doing him in his Super Saiyan form? I'm sure you'd do a very good job on that too if you decided to.

Sorry for replying to late. I have thought about it, but I think incorporating that yellow-ish hair in a realistic style is quite a challenge. Right now, I'm working on other projects so that would be something for the future. :)
