Bardock SSJ by hsvhrt Bardock SSJ by hsvhrt
Update 2013: I finished making this at the end of last, week just never got around to posting up the update. Anyway this artwork is one of my most successful artworks I have ever made, but I have been wanting to redo this one for sometime now. I have redone everything, which meant because he is much larger in size, I had to make new line art and everything. I have updated the colors, little detail here and there and most noticeable is the hair, which I redid from scratch. I felt it needed to look more like the classic SSJ hairstyle, we all know very well. The old hair which I still like, has one thing though I felt was not right, and that was the arrangement of the bangs and the fact that he was missing one of them. Now I feel this image is now complete and I hope people like the update to him.

If you haven’t read it yet there is the manga mangastream.com/read/dragon_ba… Dragon Ball - Episode of Bardock were Bardock becomes a super saiyan.

So if you are wondering why he does not have his scouter and tail, it's because I made Bardock further in the future, if he had not died. Comparing it to Vegeta, when he went super saiyan for the first time he did not have his scouter and his tail. Bardock would be a stronger fighter, he could now reach the leave of a super saiyan, so there would be no need for the scouter. That’s my reason anyway.

I went with a new pose that I have not seen before, but used the classic Bardock facial expression because it's awesome and totally a Bardock look.

The hair is a little different to Goku's SSJ hair because the base form is a little different too. All hair styles like Goku's are different and if you look at them all you will see what I'm talking about. Even Goten's SSJ hair is different to Goku's hairstyle.

Over all he was hard to make, the armor is a combo of Vegeta's early armor and his modern armor. Also the red arm sleeves were very difficult to make and took a lot of playing around with.

Know for Bardock Father Of Goku TV Special. His headband was original Toma white armband, his hand was covered in blood and while he was holding it, it soaked in red blood.

Bardock has always been my favorite DBZ character. Any hope for a SSJ4 bardock? (in like DBZ heroes)

Yeah he is mind too, he is just awesome. And yes hard too say, I made one a while back. But I would like to see Heroes do one too. They have done him as a SSJ3 and Adult Gohan has been done as a SSJ4, so it would make sense for them to do it.

When I made this, the idea was that Bardock trued Super Saiyan latter in the time line (had he not died). Both Goku and Vegeta did not have their tails when they turned Super Saiyan.

So you're saying the idea was that Bardock had his tail removed?

Actually at the point of Goten and Trunks entering DBZ, Toriyama stated that he forgot that Saiyans even had tails.
Which is why they were never shown with one and it stayed that way.
Anyways, can you make Time Breaker Bardock? With and without the mask.
