But with Dragon Ball Super and matches such as demonstrating that the franchise is more popular than ever, it seems inevitable that we’re going to one day get a new Dragon Ball live-action movie. If that occurs in exactly the same “whitewashed” style as the previous film, there could be a little silver lining if this Dragon Ball reboot appeared something like this fantastic artwork by Datrinti, which you can check out, below:
This picture indicates a version of Goku that captures the characters brawler soul that is lively – and, above all, the soul of his signature hairstyle.
This picture captures an actor could communicate the Saiyan Prince’s signature swagger, and face type and the physique seem. Not sure the actual laws of gravity would permit that hair to work, though…
This picture makes him seem like a villain that is terrifying, and captures the character of Freeza absolutely. The red eyes are a perfect touch on the lips and bulbous head.
Mobile looks like a sickly combination of mechanical and bio-organic monstrosity. This image conveys a type of Frankenstein production moment – with a Dragon Ball energy upgrade. Again, the eyes really bring from this character’s villainy.
Much like Freeza, this picture of Kid Buu captures alien aesthetic of this character perfectly. The lean muscle/flesh look is perfect, as are the beady little mischievous eyes. The highlights are the golden accents of this gauntlets and belt. Amazing work on this.
The visual imagery around this concept that is SSJ3 is sound, and this would be a stunning second in the movie. But that hairless and glowing face seems weird – particularly on a celebrity.
This is really for its Dragon Ball Super fans that are still riding large in the thrills of the final couple episodes – especially the milestone fight between a complete Ultra Instinct Goku, and a fully-powered Jiren. Jiren seem every bit like the “little green men” strange design the anime and manga went – and even a whitewashed Goku seems pretty great in his frosty Ultra Instinct type. That UI aura may use some color.
Wondering how these beats are created by this Portuguese artist? Check out this movie of Datrinti!
What can you think about Datrinti’s artwork? Could this be acceptable for you with actors that are non-Asian as a Dragon Ball movie? Or is the variable a crimson line for youpersonally? Let us know your ideas in the comments!
