It's Finally DONE!!!
Sorry folks, this took a bit longer than I anticipated.
This is my final and true concept of Kai and his Saiyan Forms...
This is strictly a physical concept.....no special effects, no auras, just Kai in his forms....
I will give a brief explanation about each form and why I chose what I did. This way, in high hopes nobody says "this wouldn't have happened or why did you do that? You should have it this way....etc etc" [Because if you're too lazy to read the description I feel I don't need to acknowledge your ignorance.
I'm all about keeping true to the series, but I'm also all for being unique and working with loopholes in the story, thus making my OC his own and that will stand out.
Originally Kai was designed with the traditional Saiyan features...dark eyes and dark hair. Having Fled Planet Vegeta at the age of 3 and living on Yardrat til he was a young adult. Having such exposures on a different world via the atmosphere, a different sun, climate, agriculture for such a long duration some of his features would eventually change.
It's why Kai has a greyish shade to his hair, and why his eyes are Green.
There has been some confusion for a long time after they switched the SSJ to SSJ2 hair style. Originally in the Frieza Saga when Goku transformed his hair had a more square/block structure compared to the evolved version where it's hard to tell the difference between SSJ and SSJ2 except for a spikier appearance, but even then it's still hard to tell at times. So I went with the original Concept with this form. Also to note, I lightened the skin this time around to keep true to the series and I added a lighter pupil to add more depth. I was never really happy with how they looked kind of blind.
This form I struggled with for quite sometime in the design phase. I originally was going to make this the more updated SSJ form, but I could not for the life of me come up with a spikier SSJ2 look. This is Kai's preferred Form. He is at his best with no side effects and can maintain this form for as long as he needs.
This is the first time I have introduced this look. I have honestly not been a fan of SSJ3. Probably because I don't like to draw all the hair
Since I don't care for it, it seemed fitting that this forms comes with a price for Kai [also to not make him a power machine either].
When Kai is in this form not only is he extremely hot-headed but his body rejects this form and can only sustain it for a few short minutes. His stamina is quickly used up, and his body literally breaks down. Think of the effects of what happened to Goku when he used Kaio-ken x4 in the Saiyan Saga. It's the same principles but more fatal. I also added the veins to show an increase of power.
This form was enjoyable yet a headache. I wanted to be as unique with this as possible via colors and overall concept. I wanted to keep some of the original hair style idea behind it, but also do what they did in DBGT. With my version, not only does Kai not need to transform into a Golden Oozaru, but he doesn't go through a metamorphosis of a different attire either. I understand the concept of this form is so powerful it literally obliterates the upper portion of clothing. No one that I know of has done a version of this in Saiyan Armor, and we all know that the Armor has the abilities to expand and is quite durable. So I will gladly have his upper suit disintegrate and show more fur but the armor will have the ability to remain. Also to note, during this phase his clothing will look darker as well as his skin because of the high power transformation that occurs. This is the only form that his Tail will change color.
I firmly believe that no matter what form between normal and SSJ3 the tail will remain the same brown. Not the gold look when transformed. Originally I had Kai's eyes go back to his original color, but I found the purple eye color looked much better.
So there it is...Kai is OFFICIALLY 100% Designed.....at long last
I would like to Thank ALL OF YOU that have been a huge support of my OC and have helped me improve him along a very long long road.
