by twistedsifter


Brian Hwang (@proxyrax) is a freelance motion graphics artist based in Los Angeles. In an ongoing series (he’s done 7 to date), Brian animates famous athletes going ‘Super Saiyan‘. For those unfamiliar:


Super Saiyan (超サイヤ人) is an advanced transformation assumed by extraordinarily powerful members of the Saiyan race in the Dragon Ball franchise. The Super Saiyan form first premiered in April 1991, within chapter 317 of the Dragon Ball manga, entitled “Life or Death”. It also made its anime debut in 1991, first appearing in Dragon Ball Z episode 95, “Transformed at Last”. [source]


Brian posts all of his latest ‘Super Saiyans’ as gifs and videos on Instagram, Vine and Reddit (no sound). Check them out below and be sure to hit up Brian for any freelance motion graphics work.
