In Search of the Dragon Balls by Craig Pinto

Published Apr 13, 2016

Inspired by the hit anime Dragon Ball, California-based designer Craig Pinto created these fantastic illustrations and motion graphics.

“Dragon Ball is one of my favorite shows of all time. As a kid, I fell into the magic of its great humor and whimsical locations that held their own personalities. The true tests of strength, purity of heart and lasting friendships, had me hooked to the characters and the storyline. You see how a simple yet charming Goku wins over the most evil of hearts and minds, from Yamacha the thief, to Tien the con-artist and finally Piccolo the lonely avenger.

I was recently watching it with my wife and fell in love with it all over again! I wanted to test out some animation techniques and new illustration style for a game concept I want to start developing. I decided to use this nostalgic story as a foundation to my research. It was super fun, and a long awaiting tribute the 8 year old me has always wanted to do.”
