DBZ - Passion - 9 by Shinjuchan DBZ - Passion - 9 by Shinjuchan
情熱. PASSION - As a river flows
( Piccolo X Gohan )

....... DRIP DRIP DRIP

If anything at all immediately dawns on me having worked on this small lilí mini doujin over the passed couple of days, itís that it has reeeeeeally been a while since I have drawn Toriyama-style for any lengthy time. It was almost as though I had to go watch some DBZ and shake off the rust. Mentioned a number of occasions in the past, most all of my fans here are aware that I once worked as author/illustrator for the Dragonball doujinshi title ĎHob-nudian Chaptersí (DBHC) through the now defunct Huryuki group. That title ended in 2001 so since then --besides a few scattered drawings here and there-- I havenít had too many excuses or reasons to maintain the technique. My work in resent years have been predominately my own signature form of drawing manga, which I see as a blending of western/eastern influences.

---Then I received a tattoo design request, and now this here ; D I confess that this has been a scene that has found itís way into my mind and creative spark more than once. Iím glad that I can finally bring it out on paper for you to enjoy. Even so, with that in mind, I decided I would not be following Toriyama-sama to the exact letter. Youíre still going to see elements of myself in here and quite frankly I believe itís better that way. You should be yourself on Deviant. This is about YOUR art ...not pre-existing, been there, done that ~ Enjoy!

Oh, by the way. In case the title is obvious enough, yes this is yaoi, and yes, actually I DO have a fetish for Gohan and Piccolo. Thanks for pointing that out. I own many doujinshi by many different artists and friends in the business. If this is a problem for you ...hey, back button yourself to another Deviant.

I love how shocked he looks, yet he still complies without complaint!
I love the way you draw them.

I actually spent a few minutes deciding whether or not this needed any speech text, but then I realized it was a speechless moment. Piccolo’s more confounded than anything. I wanted to jerk him between his embarrassment/shock and his need to want to trust Gohan because ...well, it’s Gohan.

To be honest, he looks a bit terrified in the last panel... but then again, he would be, I guess!
Definitely a speechless moment, I must agree. It goes without say, I absolutely LOVE this doujin with a... Passion XD You're awesome.

Terrified? Think so? I was actually going for the ‘I’m reeeeally not sure about this’ look *lol*

Thank you again. ...Maybe a tad rusty though. It’s been some time since I’ve had that many projects/work that needed the Toriyama-style.

'I'm reeeally not sure about this and I'm quite terrified about it' :)

Thank you. I appreciate that. I can still see things that are distinctively mine in the art. That’s not a negative though. I’d rather it have my ‘fingerprints’ all over it, if you will.

Yeah, I like your style, it's very Toriyama-esque but with a slight bit of extra flourish, e.g. tapered, incomplete lines which add to the dynamic feel of the water and such. Works really well with the setting ^^

On the subject of talking about them earlier today, that incomplete, flourishing style is something I brought w/ me from my adventures with Yokohama and Pink Palace. I always admired the way Ayumi approached it. Her art moved like water. It’s the only way I can think now to describe it. I have a few of her panel arts here. I should scan them sometime.

For a trigger of a moment I thought about when Piccolo died in GT. He’s died before, but this time felt and seemed so forever. I never cried so hard over a cartoon in my life. I remember thinking in my head, had I been Gohan: “I’m coming with you. I’d rather die than to live in this world without you in it.” Their relationship was precious.

oh i knooooooww i cried my EYES out in GT :(

the fanfic i'm writing takes up after gt, and i focus HEAVILY on the fact that the two of them have been seperated for so long, and with how close they were, it HAD to be painful for them D:>

Gohan crying over his death made my heart hurt after the scenes between them were Nill at that point. he just seemed so heartbroken, and he fell to his knees all upset and ahhhh i'm getting sad again DX

When I first saw it there wasn’t an English dub made fir it yet. I saw it in Japanese instead. Neither version however is any more or less heart wrenching. They both are. And you’re right. Up until the point, GT hadn’t placed much focus on either Gohan or Piccolo, so it was nice (although bittersweet) when they did that. It must of effected me more than I thought it would of because I dreamt about it later.

it was bittersweet :( i watched it in english sub too, but because we didn't have that specific episode on tv at the time.

i was very upset that they didn't have many scenes together after Gohan grew up, but a friend of mine has (heavily) inspired the headcannon that they prob just talked mentally/telepathically like when Pic died so they didn't grow apart as much as is thought :/ ohhh, i just got an idea of putting that in my story! :idea:
