Heres a concept sculpt for Piccolo. My own version of the movie version. I've tried the giant turban on his head, the humongous brow muscles, the purple pants and blue sash from the comics. Turned out looking like a genie vampire from hell. So I stopped looking at the reference and tried doing my own thing. I'm thinkin maybe the live action route wasn't the best idea, and they should have made it completely cg animated, without trying to ground things to reality. It would have been some epic stuff.
