My first ever commission is done! Rei is always a joy to draw. I love working with her hair. I think this would be the second time I’d drawn her with this attack and it’s nice to return to it. This piece also taught me a lot of new things about the vector side of Clip Studio. Lots of good things I can put toward my future work!
A list of near-impossible things Jinbei has done during the WCI arc so far:
fully convinced Luffy and the rest to ally with Bege & Caesar in order to have a shot at taking down Big Mom despite their differences
bravely stood up to Big Mom, and is the first to ever walk away with his soul/lifespan intact because he ain’t afraid of no damn yonko
fending off against difficult opponents like Katakuri & Prometheus, whom even Luffy has a hard time dealing with
and let’s not forget how he saved Luffy from almost ripping his arms off in a desperate escape attempt, and also when he stepped in to save Nami and Brook from an attack by a half-asleep Big Mom. honestly, at this point, i’ve kinda lost count of how many times Jinbei has saved the life of a Straw Hat member…
anyway, the bottom line is, Jinbei’s gonna be such a strong (if not the strongest) and valuable addition to the Straw Hat crew, and i can’t fucking wait for him to officially be a part of them and join in the Straw Hat shenanigans!!
