This is not a cosplay. It’s not a statue. It’s art. Fantastic art.

Created by concept artist Deng Jing, who hails from Beijing, this work shows Piccolo standing in front of the Tenkaichi Budokai.

Damn, this is good.

The artist also did a rendition of Nameless Namek’s spaceship. Likewise, it’s fantastic.
