Dragon Ball Episode 2 - Cell's Return

Hello Guys, its been 2 month ago since my last video of Dragon ball episode 1, and now here it is,
episode 2, Cell as the boss and Goku, Vegeta to save the day, this video I specially focus on fighting skills and air combat, well, please check the video first as below :

This video in the animation part took me 53 days and sound effects application took me 6 days, in total I spend 59 days to make this video and with more than 6000 pictures. 
In the below, I will show some pictures and behind the scenes skill for you to study.

The action figures from SHF, Goku, Vegeta, Cell, Trunks and Piccolo,
these dudes cost me around USD$350 in total. 

The battle field in also in the middle of my room, I made the course indication before start to film the video, this helps me greatly how to arrange the movements and calculation of the distance.

Tools that I use in this video, they are simple tools but very useful

Modification to the dolls, original dolls are very fragile, so I need to strong their joints

The dolls of this series are very detail and beautiful, but only Goku's face are a little bit too angry, 
so I made some paint modification to make him look better.

The doll itself comes with several changeable facial expressions. 

Some cuts where toys are hold with tools, then I use photoshop to erase them

Green screening, in this case for Green Piccolo, its called blue screening

Below here are some shots that I like from this video

The thumbnail that I use on youtube for this video, 
the upper one is after "effects" the lower one is the original without effects
