Each author tends to evolve his trait during the years of serialization, all the more so when the appointment between the pages of a particular magazine affects weekly or monthly and for a long period of time. Akira Toriyama’s style, therefore, also changed a lot during the writing of Dragon Ball.
Today the future of the series passes into the hands of Toyotaro who, slowly, is taking more courage and autonomy to inherit the franchise. A long transition phase that today we have come to appreciate despite the support of Akira Toriyama remains evident especially in the script phase. Anyway, currently the last new character design we got to admire was that of Goku Ultra Perfect Instinct, a shape very popular with fans of DB Super.
Precisely in honor of this popularity, an artist, a certain LoboArt, tried to reinterpret Goku’s appearance in honor of the past, particularly before that Toriyama sensei began to gradually evolve his style. The result in question, which you can admire at the bottom of the news, provides an interesting food for thought since Goku looks very different from how we know him today, with a decidedly less angular and rounded stroke and less marked muscles.
