Dragon Ball Art – Vegeta Paintings

vegeta portrait painting dragon ball art

The Prince of all Saiyans has awakened!

It’s time to explore Vegeta’s life through digitally painted Dragon Ball fan art.

Over the course of writing The Dao of Dragon Ball book and interacting with fans, I’ve been surprised by how much love there is for Vegeta. I had thought Goku was the most popular character.

But it turns out that Dragon Ball fans absolutely adore Vegeta’s attitude, his raw Saiyan strength, and his stylish hair line.

His transformation from a cold blooded killer to a family man over the course of hundreds of episodes is an iconic example of the power of redemption and personal change.

Vegeta now stands as one of the most recognizable characters in this or any other series. There’s no mistaking Vegeta when you see him!

Now we take a moment to look back on the life of a soul that sought the value of its self worth. A Saiyan who lost his tail and became a man.

Final Flash

Killer. Servant. Warrior. Lover. Father. To Hell and back. This was the life of Vegeta, the Prince of all Saiyans.

These images were found on the internet and I gave attribution where possible.

In case you’re curious, the first one was called “Vegeta, Prince of the Saiyans” by Giye.

    I’m absolutely blown away by the amount of realism that goes into some of these! A lot of the adaptations are just mind blowing. love it.

    Speaking of the personal change. Which character do you think experienced the most growth and redemption in the series? I’m torn as to whether it’s Piccolo or Vegata.

    • Derek Padula says:

      My gut instinct is to go with Piccolo. He was born a demon and then became one with god. If the GT writers hadn’t made him choose to live in Hell, then he would have forever resided in Heaven.

      Vegeta was a bad dude, that’s for sure, and his genetics played a large role in being ruthless, but I think he was the product of his environment. When his environment changed and he no longer had to live under the heel of a tyrant, then so did he.

      • cob1 says:

        I think I agree with your assessment. Vegeta was more forced into his ways whereas piccolo craved them.

        I also think its interesting that every one of the major characters in the Z Series has a chance to fail and let down the group, then to redeem themselves and grow in character.
