The making of my new computer wallpaper.

Original screencap
Original screencap

I've been needing some practice to try and sharpen with my tablet drawing skills, so I decided to make a new wallpaper for my computer. I currently have a self made wallpaper of ONE PIECE's Nico Robin. While no one in that series will ever replace my adoration for this mature and alluring femme fatale, I've also been seduced by yet another ONE PIECE character with looks to kill. Monet from the more recent Punk Hazard Arc.

I really liked this one image of Monet from the latest ONE PIECE anime opening theme, "Hands Up". I got a screencap from You Tube, but the quality was poor and colors flat. I wanted my wallpaper to have some depth to it.

I took this captured image and increased both the size and image quality to 300 DPI. I redrew all the lines that were in the image. However, I wanted to give the picture my own sort of style of coloring. I used the original as a bit of a guide, but you can see where I took some liberties.

I hope you enjoy the picture, and I'd like to hear your thoughts.

One Piece 681 - "Luffy Versus Master"

This week cover page is a cover story, it about Jimbei taking Caribou to the G-5 Marine Base. Ok, Jimbei have you been smoking? Turning Caribou into the Marines isn't a good idea. One, because you are a wanted pirate and two, Caribou know about Shirahoshi's little secret (that would spell trouble for Fishman Island, if the World Government find out)

Summary

I Love That Face
I Love That Face

Luffy begins to fight with CC, while the lovely Monet looks on. Smoker grab his Jitte and leaves to find Vergo. CC ask Luffy, "why is he still after him?" Luffy reply " I don't know, but if I kidnapped you, something interesting will happen". Then CC uses his ability to remove the oxygen from the surrounding area, forcing Luffy to fight from a distance. But then CC close the gap and then use his Blue Sword and try to slash Luffy. Luffy dodge the and prepares to counted attack with his Armament Haki Gum Gum Jet Gatling, but the lovely Monet block the attack by making a wall to shield CC. She holds Luffy back while CC escapes, she then ask Luffy to not go after CC saying that Joker will erased her if she lets anything happen to CC.

What Is Your Powers?
What Is Your Powers?

In the passage way that connects block A and block B, the B-block door is slowly closing whiles Sanji and Vergo continued to fight, Sanji manage to kick Vergo head first into a wall. Then the A-block door slowly opens, allowing the poison cloud to enter the passage way. Vergo then get back up and kicks Sanji hard enough to crack a bone in Sanji's leg. Back around the Lab area, one of CC's centaur henchman announces over a broadcast that Law has entered the S.A.D. Manufacturing Room. Law walks through the area with a smile on his face, while CC, Vergo and the lovely Monet realize what his plan is.

The Good

+ All of CC's faces when Luffy hit him

What Are You Planning Law!?
What Are You Planning Law!?

+ Luffy's reason for going after him

+ CC's Blue Lightsaber

+ The Lovely Monet's power (I just in love with her)

+ The fight with Sanji and Vergo

+ Law (He is so awesome)

The Bad

- Still no Chopper or Franky

My Quick Thoughts

Wow, things are heating up. I wondering what is Law after and what CC have plan for Luffy. Also it seems that Vergo is either a Devil Fruit user or is he a master of the Six Powers (That CP9 use). Man, I can't wait until next week.

Overall

I'll give this chapter 4 out of 5, it was an awesome

Hmm, I thought Sith only use Red Lightsabers

It seem like Monet is the one who helping Chopper, wonder what is her story. I really hope Monet or the PH dragon (or both) join the crew after this. I can't believe I feeling for the G-5 marines, they been getting on my nerves, but now I just feel sorry for them. Oda why you making me care for the G-5 marines & Brownbeard? Also it would be cool if Tashigi is reveal to be Kuina and is the big bad of One Piece :)

Overall

I'll give this chapter again 3 out of 5, it was a good chapter (it basically set up again, hope we get some action next time)

Law & Monet Sitting In A Tree
Law & Monet Sitting In A Tree

The Slime continues to spit pieces of itself across the lake, poisoning the lake in the process. Brook recognize the blob from a dirty book he have red. Despite this, Sanji who is in Nami's body decide to dives in to the lake and searches for the samurai's torso, since he/she is the fastest swimmer of Zoro's group. At the lab, Law asks Monet to accompany him through the laboratory, saying he want to borrow her powers. CC slips out of Luffy's hold, and demonstrates the combat abilities of his Devil Fruit as the two fight each other. Although Luffy appears unharmed after all of CC's poisonous and explosive attacks, he spontaneously collapses and CC laughs in triumph. Shortly after, Law suddenly falls down injured in the laboratory, before being confronted by a mysterious figure he recognizes.

The Good

+Brook recognize the Slime from a dirty book

I Also Need Duck Tape
I Also Need Duck Tape

+The Samurai & Sanji who in Nami's body want to borrow the book

+The part with Monet & Law

+Franky suggesting to put CC into a barrel

The Bad

-I have to wait two weeks to see who is the mysterious person is

-Also Oda forgot to make Sanji in Nami's body coat disappear, when he/she take it off

My Thoughts

Man, this was an awesome chapter. It have great fighting and it move the story along. I got some theories of who is the mysterious person at the end of the chapter. It might be Joker, since Law was surprise seeing him there or its Kuzan (Aokiji) judging from his feet, and he might of stay on the island or it could be Vegapunk

Overall

This was an awesome chapter, it got me hype up for next chapter in two weeks

I'll give this chapter a 4.5 out of 5, it was an awesome chapter but having to wait two weeks drop the rating down

So what did you guys think of the chapter?

1 is really bad, 2 is bad but have some good scenes, 3 is OK, 4 is good and 5 is Awesome!
