I edited 18 Dragon Ball stages for 640x480 resolution (doubled resolution + applied Median filter for antialiasing effect)

This is the result:

IMages are kinda necessary here to see how the stages look like now.

While your efforts are commendable, you can't help but notice that everything has a... smudgy look, very similar to how an emulator looks with upscaled filtering turned on.

I like the Choujin styled stages you chose to scale, but I don't like the after-effect. Not my cup of tea, but thanks for sharing your efforts. :sugoi:

I'd like to report two robots on the MFG forums: One is EXShadow. The other is Saikoro.
There should be a Saikoro plugin for Photoshop.

Actually none of them are Choujin styled (I'm not sure about Snakeway though).

Originally, these stages were in Ristar87´s Dragon Ball Z M.U.G.E.N Edition 2011 compilation, which is first mugen game I ever played and I started to customizing it.

Saikoro, thank you for your opinion, you have right it have smudgy look. I think some stages look better with it, some worse... In my opinion the good ones are Cliff of Desolation, Janemba's Stage, New Tuffle Planet, Piccolo Waterfall and Training Field

Here is comparison of before and now:

Hmmm... interesting comparisons. While they do look better than their original counterparts, the smudgy look is a turnoff for me. Still, with my opinion aside, they do look good. I prefer the pixelated look.

Actually none of them are Choujin styled (I'm not sure about Snakeway though).

Oops. My bad. I mentioned "Choujin Styled" because I use the Spaceship and Planet of Kai's for my Choujin characters.  :ninja:
