It's been a while since I uploaded a Featured piece on DeviantArt, so here we are.
Watching the latest arc of Dragon Ball Super
, I recently found myself pondering what a Potara fusion between Black Goku and the Apprentice Kaioshin
Zamasu might look like, should it ever occur. After a few rough sketches I came up with the composition you see above. ARTIST'S COMMENTARY
Between planning, drawing, painting and shading, I would say this image took about 10 to 15 hours to complete. I tried to follow the style and colour scheme of the anime as closely as possible.
In coming up with the overall design of the fusion, I tried to keep it more on the conservative side. Instead of choosing one skin-tone over another, I decided to make "Zamaku's" skintone a 50/50 blend of the two. Also, I carried over Zamasu's pointed ears and mohawk, giving the latter a slight pinkish hue, signifying his SSJ Rose status. In his base form I would imagine his hair being either solid black or black with white highlights. Also instead of pointing straight up, his base form would be more forward-pointing.
His clothes on the other-hand follow more faithfully to Black's gi in terms of design and colour. This was mainly due to the fact that I much prefer the look of his costume over Zamasu's. That being said I have incorporated some of the kaioshin's garb into the design, including more pointed shoulders and making his pants and undershirt a very dark shade of purple. I also incorporated Zamasu's sash into the fusion, but swapped the light teal for the crimson red colour of Black's belt.
