Dude, this is a really nice drawing. I like the look and the exprssion of confidence on the saiyan's face. The line work on this thing is really sharp and on point. The colors are really cool too. The sword looks sweet, and I can tell he's a master with it. The critique I would give is go easy on the shading. I like it, but it kind of blocks all the colors and makes it hard for you to see the colors clearly. But other than that, all and all, it's a beast mode drawing. I'll look for your dawings in the future, keep it up.
What do you think?

I was actually aiming for Kanzenban/Perfect Edition graphics (which is where the guys who did Ultimate Tenkaichi took reference from ^^)

Cool! Is vaboru the type to train cause id like to see him reach ssj2 possbily or maybe ssj3!

Nah, I honestly dislike Super Powered or Overpowered OC's, with, like, SSJ6, SSJ Ultimo God Mystic... transformations that even the main characters don't have...
I'd rather have Vaboru be weak, and find other creative ways of making him win.

The problem with having a too powerful OC (besides the Mary Sue idea) is the following:
Let's say there's an OC during the Evil Dragon's saga in DBGT.
If he can reach over SSj1, let's say SSJ3 (which is more than Vegeta can officially achieve), one can ask:
"What was he doing while everybody was getting their asses kicked?"
How do I reply to that?
Instead, if I have a weak OC, I can say:
"He was too weak, he would've been in the way" or "He's dead, he can't intervene" etc...

I like the Dragon Ball I grew up with, the one with a joke on each page, the one where characters actually won not only through strength, but strategy as well. A character doesn't need to be all powerful in order to win.
Vaboru isn't a fighter. He's a strategist and a swordsman.
He doesn't need or care to be stronger. He just loves winning. So he's just gonna refine his sword technique, and his intelligence.
I just gave him SSJ1 to insert an emotional scene in my Dragon Ball KB story, he doesn't even use it that much...
Even Toriyama himself says that this entire transformation thing is getting out of hand, and that from now on, Goku won't be using SSJ3 anymore...

Yes I get you bro but it wouldnt hurt to have ssj2 atleast! And most of the time its either cheating by sending his opponents brain to a sun or using his sword that can cut through anything with vaboru! I liked the art with vaboru vs fria but the way he won was damn well straight up cheating! It kinda irked me but I still respect your reasoning

SSJ2 basically looks the same as SSJ1, but with lightning and less hair on ones forehead. Vaboru doesn't need that. He just has an unbreakable sword that he uses mostly for defense against more powerful opponents, and a brilliant strategic mind that he uses to win in the most efficient way possible.

From a Strategic point of view, there is no such thing as cheating. It's just winning, or not winning.

If on Namek, Krillin had used his Kienzan on Frieza right after doing his Solar Flare, he would've cut Frieza in half. Would that've been cheating? No.
If the Z Warriors had gone directly to Dr Gero and killed him 2 years before he activated the androids, would that have been cheating? No.
If Master Roshi had asked Shenron to send the Saiyans in the Sun, instead of bringing Goku back to life, would that have been cheating? No.
If Mr Popo had wished Frieza to be teleported on a Sun, instead of letting Goku fight him, would that have been cheating? No.

Every single time, the Z warriors refrain from doing the smart thing because of their warrior code. By doing this, they cause the deaths of entire populations. Of course, they solve this by using the Dragonballs, but wouldn't it be better if they prevented their death in the first place?

Sun Tsu says that only those full of ego prefer to ask forgiveness than to obey.
From this point of view, the Z warriors would rather sacrifice millions of lives in order to have a loyal battle, than to dirty their hands and save those lives.

Well yes ssj2 is same except for the power but ya I seewhere your coming from with the warrior code although I think frieza may have survived being on surface of the sun cause he survived a planetary super nova/explosion being cut in half.its seems arcosians have high durability i mean fria did 
And yes it wouldnt be cheating if it werent a TOURNAMENT those situations with the z warriors were a life threatning situation not a fighting match for fun
but wait the o.c burst doesnt allow death scenes how did bloodsplach allow the death of fria?!

Cooler (stronger than Frieza) died on the Sun. So did Broly. Frieza would be doomed.
Although I CAN picture Frieza resisting at least bit because if you remember, he has that barrier of his...

Basically, the adult filter can't be on... nudity of an extremely erotical kind and scenes where we actually see the character die are forbidden.
For the fight against Arevir, you see a planet get blown up.
For the fight against Fria, you see her final moments of consciousness, but not her dying exactly.
For the fight against Gin, you see a planet get blown up (again).

No no no broly and cooler died because they were thrown into the heat of the sun by a powerful beam from gokuCooler was destroyed by three beams of energy!the first gokus kamehameha three back coolers supernova with a kamehameha and he gets vaporized by the sun, his own technique and gokus energy beam!the same with broly too
so they were the filling for a galaxy heat sandwich being crushed by BOTH the suns heat and the pure destructive energy of a Kamehameha which would destroy anything except maybe a ssj4 gogeta or vegito!
Oh kay so you cant see them vaporized by the energy beam or have there o.c thrusted through the stomach with a hand kay
