The Supreme Saiyan by S-Shield The Supreme Saiyan by S-Shield
The Supreme Saiyan.

That's a name I came up with. I used to be obsessed with DBZ and all the Super Saiyan transformations. "What was SS4? How was it connected? What was the Legendary Super Saiyan?" etc.

So I thought, what if the Legendary Super Saiyan from 1000 years ago was a combination of all known forms of SS?

So you can see it here. SS1 face, SS3 hair, SS4 body-fur and tail, and Brolly's clothes in Goku and Vegeta's colors. I couldn't figure out how to fit SS2 in there, but now I realize I should have surrounded the body in chain-lightning!

Oh, well. 7 years too late.

It's nice though, right?

Appreciate the love. I was so into DBZ back then. And yeah, Goku is certainly the model.

In my mind, where GT doesn't exist, this is the first ever Super Saiyan, back when Saiyans were less evolved, hence all the fur.

Basically, imagine all Saiyans looking like SS4, all feral and half-ape. Cavemen Saiyans, if you will. And this was their first tribal chief.

Oh I see. That does make sense. Um, contrary to popular belief, GT IS canon, just in case you didn't know.

Not sure why you'd think that. Toriyama only did initial character designs, and had no story input. Plus, the new Dragon Ball Online game, which Toriyama is working on, is set hundreds of years in the future and ignores GT.

I suppose you could say that GT is canon in the anime universe, since it, I don't know, exists. But I'm only concerned with the manga.

But that doesn't mean you can't enjoy GT, or the movies for that matter.

It's widely belived to be non-canon due to the fact that it wasn't produced as manga like its predecessors. Also, he did have story writing influence in GT, just not to a degree like Dragon Ball or Dragon Ball Z. And while Dragon Ball Online ignores the GT timeline, that could be considered non-canon too, as well as a number of anime filler instances in both DB and DBZ. Funny thing is GT has no filler (ie, useless events) and the least amount of inconsistencies that both DB and DBZ are known to have hundreds for. But at the very least, Toriyama did have a degree of storywriting influence in GT and a hand in its creation.

Well, you pretty much just proved my point. It's widely believed to be non-canon, because canon, for the most part, is based on belief.
"Canon" is a tricky thing in any franchise, and pretty much just comes down to each fan's choice of when to say "when." And if you ask most hardcore DB fans, they'll tell you GT doesn't count. It's on the same level as the DBZ movies. Basically, it has no filler because it IS filler.
DBZ is closer to something like Harry Potter than Spider-Man, because DBZ comes from the mind of a singular author, and is not a never ending story with hundreds of writers. So by that logic, the only undisputably canon part of the story is officially over when Toriyama stops writing. From that point on, it's up to each fan to pick and choose what they like.

Oh. Okay, I still believe GT is canon though, despite advice to the contrary, but you're right. Although it does get old when DB fans are still disputing this subject. Let it be canon to those who choose to let it be, and those who don't belive don't have to. Still, GT is very interesting and it's actually cool when you watch it.

Oh yeah. I enjoyed the heck out of most of GT for a lot of the reasons you mentioned, plus the fact that it was very Goku-centric, unlike a lot of DBZ, in which Goku is always somewhere else while Gohan and Vegeta take the lead.
But as Toriyama fan first and a DB fan second, for me, DB stops when Toriyama does. Everything else is just Imaginary Stories or What If scenarios.

That's what I was thinking. One theory is that SS4 is what happens when you turn Super Saiyan with a tail. Combine that with the idea of the "Legendary" Super Saiyan like Brolly and you get this.

Though it has a few problems.

The abs don't line up with the pecs very well. I know it's hard to line them up, and it's something you'll need to consult a variety of reference pics before you can master it.

The waist, though not as big an issue, looks slightly too thin. He has seemingly no hips. It isn't very visible, though, so that's okay.

It does look pretty damn good for most artwork I've seen out there.

Heh, thanks. I outlined it in black pen before I colored it, but the color is all pencil. I used to be amazing with colored pencils. It's just like anything else, all it takes is time and hard work and you can make anything look good. Funny thing is, those were just store-brand Crayolas.

I actually came up with a form similar to this. It's basically Super Saiyan 3 while in a half oozaru form. Except there are some slight changes in the physical appearence. Here's my idea on what the original super saiyan looked like. btw his design is for a fan fic I'm writting called dragonball legends:
