Fanart Friday: Toriyama Akira


Once upon a time, I loved Toriyama Akira so much that I drew this fanart.


Then I happened upon THIS UNFORTUNATE TRUTH.


So, instead of killing myself, I drew this (as though it were a rebuttal of some kind).

I love reading Dragon Ball mangas. I even planned on training to become Super Saiyan one day (this was a long time ago.)

Love the drawing and also the animation portraying your inner teen angst!

Dragonball was my favorite! Especially when Goku was a little boy. I think it lost it's charm once he became an adult. Your little animation is SO MUCH FUN!
