Naohiro Shintani’s focus on the Dragon Ball Super: Broly movie is a huge major game-changer for the franchise. Dragon Ball fans have now seen a stylistic concept for the series’characters and action which they cannot (and don’t want to) unsee, resulting in a brand new wave of fan art inspired by Shintani designs!
Here’s a good example we’ve to fairly share today: some Dragon Ball Super artwork of Goku in a struggle pose, given a Shintani makeover. Check that out below:
The original Dragon Ball Super design was done by Tadayoshi Yamamuro, who is credited with being the largest influence on the modern Dragon Ball franchise, with his “straight style” of character design, which depicted characters with very sharp and angular designs, and became some of the very viral Dragon Ball iconography to hold the franchise through the 2000s.
Shintani’s work on dragon ball super: Broly has caused an important resurgence for the series more classic style of series pioneer Minoru Maeda, who oversaw the first Dragon Ball series and much of Dragon Ball Z’s first half. Maeda’s designs were much more rounded and soft, and his action scenes much more flesh-and-bone visceral than later high-speed, smack-n-vanish battles. Seeing Shintani style in Broly’s modern high-polish fashion was truly a revelation – the one that so many fans are hoping will influence the following Dragon Ball Super anime.
