WE GO! - lines by AnnouncerGuy WE GO! - lines by AnnouncerGuy
Hi, it's been a long time. More to say than can be said but basically grad school and all that has me very busy. I am currently studying abroad in England and having an awesome time.

I figured it was about time I drew the Strawhats post time skip so here they are. I can't say I'm pleased with all of the designs:

Luffy: unchanged, so whatever, that's cool. :)
Zoro: badass, two thumbs up. :)
Nami: fitting for her confident personality, but sort of unimaginative and overly fanservice-y, duh. : /
Usopp: GREAT! I love it, probably the best of the new designs. :D
Sanji: other than the reverse eyebrow, pretty lame and lazy looking. Boo. >: /
Chopper: almost unchanged but I like how he has grown in his natural form so yay. :)
Robin: it's criminal that we ended up with this when almost all of the other designs in the concept sketches looked much more refined and Robin-like. Waaay lame. Bad form Oda. >: /
Franky: as a huge fan, this was disappointing. He looks very toy-like now. No good. >: / but nipple lights? Hell yah! :D
Brook: doesn't really match his image, I expected better. Oda's strategy just seems to be to layer on more absurdity which isn't necessary for Brook obviously..... NAY! >: /

Okay, I've said my piece. Will probably color this eventually. Some issues, Sanji seems incorrectly sized, at least relative to Franky, and no, that is not Chopper's current horn point. This is like some kind of horny jumping point, haha, but let's just assume Chopper is infinitely mutable within a certain range. Yay. I will try to update again within the year this time.

Also, We Go is a pretty nice theme song.

Hate Nami's fanservice and Robin. Also hate how Robin and Ussop has been white washed.

This isn't half bad. The proportions seem accurate, to me at least, and I love the expression on all of their faces. Good job. Better than I could do.

We pretty much have the same opinion about the designs that are good. Robin's design really bummed me out.

Nice pic, I'm waiting for the colored version ! And you're right, Robin and Sanji's news design were kind of lame... They look oooold ! (not so shocking for Robin, but Sanjiiiii ! How did that come ???)

i think Franky's design isn't that bad. although i did wish he kept his hair the same as it was before. granted being able to change it is cool but his original do was the best.
Bananatect Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
why no-one like sanji after the timeskip?
Rei-hina Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2012
by the way
your drawing is still amazing !

(bad me, I forgot to say the more important point)
Rei-hina Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2012
I feel almost the same way
some new designs are great, other ones poor

girls and Sanji designs are too simple too easy, but they're okay I guess...
Luffy's still the same but seems a (very) little more mature xD
Zorro and Usopp are awesome !!
About Brook when I saw it I also thought it doesn't really match...
Franky... a little shocked at first, but well... he's still so fun ! and why not after all
and Chopper cute as ever (little disappointed that its 'brain point' shape didn't grow) and I love its 'horn point' and 'run point' shapes x)

After some time, I'm used with their new looks, they're still cool and fun, and still... themself

p.s. sorry my writting is not very good (I'm french after all...)

I have to say I agree with most of your observations about the post-timeskip character designs. :) There were such lovely designs for Robin, and even some more for Sanji, which I think might have been a little more fun. Oh well. We still love them all, right?
Great pic, by the way. I love it so much. I actually think you've managed to draw them all in a far more careful and accurate way than some of the most recent panels of the manga! Far be it from me to criticise Oda (especially since the current story/plot arc is so incredibly AMAZING!!) but I think I preferred his style a lot earlier on in the manga. Maybe in an effort to keep the pace racing, he rushes a bit?! I don't know.
You've managed to capture something of the old crew we knew, PLUS give us the new outfits and 2 years of ageing ... which is something we just don't see in a lot of art, fan OR canon, nowadays. I get a real sense of their maturity as a crew, but am reassured that everything we loved about their personalities is still intact. They look like our friends, but just a little bit more grown up ... which is exactly how they should be. :D WELL DONE!!

We Go is an awesome theme song, and this is awesome piece of fanart! Gives the image that they're about to go kick some marine butt:D

As for the new designs, I can understand if people don't like them all, but personally I don't have much of a problem with any of them. Well, Chopper could've kept his old hat and Franky his old hairstyle. But the fact that he can shoot rockets and use nipple lights compensates for that.:)

Good to see an update from you, sorry that studies are keeping you so busy. Here's hoping that life calms down soon so that you can rejoin us here in the interweb art realm. :D
