King Piccolo by Rutenator King Piccolo by Rutenator
King Piccolo continues my long list of unsubmitted work. My scanner isn't working, so i had to take a pic of the sketch. I then added colours, fixed the shape and texturized it with PSP 7. This was possible after massive improvement of the photo with curves adjustment. Hope you like it!

Original sketch: [link]

2009 edit: played with the colours and repainted the eyes.

Hi! I liked this picture so much that I featured it in this News article ([link]) and in this journal of mine ([link]). It's simply stunning! If you wish to see other Dragon Ball-related high quality images, you can have a look at that News article, and (again, if you wish) you can press the green "loved it" button under the title, so yours, and the other featured pictures, can get much exposure. Thanks a lot for sharing such a masterpiece.

Why didn't the live-action film make piccolo look this good?

I wondered why I didn't see this- it was done before I watched you. :lol: Nice work. The mouth area/jaw seems kind of flat to me for some reason though. :P

I read your comments- big DBZ fan huh? ;P I liked the DB series better. And I used to think Piccolo was hot when I was a kid. :XD:

If only this had been how Piccolo was in the live action film...not that that'd really matter with how bad it'd still be, but it'd at least be one awesome thing.

Thanks very much for the compliment, I appreciate it a lot, though this doesn't deviate much from the original Piccolo design by the great Akira Toriyama.

An excellent alien would-be dictator! You nailed the "evolved from slugs" origin of the Namekian species. Speaking of Nails, I'd love to see other Namek characters done by you. Very impressive.

Wow this is really fascinating, considering nameks are basically plants, I suppose they would have skin similar to plants. Well done. :D

Cheers, I totally forgot about the plant thing. I think it would be useful for as humans too to be able to synthesize our own nutrition.

If only Piccolo looked like this in the live action remake of "Dragon Ball." Great work. I'm not worthy.

Ahh, I think the movie Piccolo looks quite a lot like Piccolo Jr from the anime. But based on what I've read of the movie, there aren't that many additional positive points one can say of the movie.

Everyone is equally worthy here on Earth.

Still, I'm curious as to how the rest of mankind would react to the film.
