Today at DragoArt.com we will learn to draw an excellent and insanely powerful villain Cell. In the Dragon Ball Z series, Cell was created the evil Dr. Gero. He was formed by collected cells from powerful Dragon Ball Z warriors in the universe. Cell is made up of Piccolo, Freiza, Vegeta, Goku and King Cold. Dr. Gero labeled him as the ‘Perfect Warrior.’ Cell first appeared as an insect like creature. He flourished from a large cocoon and became to looking like a tall humanoid insect with a long scorpion like tail. This tail is the main body part that sucks all the energy from his victims. It makes him stronger and larger. He needs a certain amount of energy to complete his final form. Dr. Gero created an objective for Cell as soon as he was awakened. This objective was to absorb androids 17 and 18 with his large suction tail. As soon as Cell was born, he absorbed the energy and life from normal citizens around the fictional world of Dragon Ball Z. Cell first moved onto absorbing android 18 and was transformed into the Semi-Perfect form. He would have completed his finally form if he absorbed the android 17 but was stopped by Tien. Tien kept Cell busy while androids 17 and 16 found a place to escape to. Eventually, Tien ran out of energy and stopped. He tortured Tien a little bit and then moved on to find the other android. While he came upon a mix of Islands, Cell wanted to blow the Androids out of their hiding places. Before he attempted to destroy the island android 17 and 16 were on, Vegeta managed to come along and try to defeat Cell by testing his new Super Saiyan abilities. Later on, Vegeta could have defeated him but was tempted to let him absorb android 17 so he can test his skills to a challenge. Cell did manage to absorb the android and then defeated Vegeta with ease. Before Vegeta was finished off, Trunks came along and transformed into a more powerful Super Saiyan that was stronger then his father. He soon failed and Cell challenged all of the warriors to a martial arts tournament called Tenkaichi Budokai. In the end Goku’s son Gohan achieves to becoming a Super Saiyan 2 and prevents Cell from self destructing himself and the whole planet. Sadly, Goku dies in at the near end of this Dragon Ball Z saga. Anyways, Cell regenerates himself entirely and teleports back to earth. Gohan finishes him off by using the Kamehameha technique. I drew out this awesome Dragon Ball Z character by using my Wacom Intuos3 tablet and the computer program Adobe Photoshop CS. It took me a total of three hours to draw. I made sure I had a nice pose for him and an excellent body proportion. I hope this tutorial comes of use for you! Have fun drawing the ancient Dragon Ball Z Cell!
