I drew each Strawhat on paper and scanned them in, I then adjusted each image for the best composition in each button.
Then I start the coloring process, again I put the flats down first then I start shading on the same layers so unfortunately this is how I have to show my process.
All the strawhats are now colored and ready for their backgrounds and details. As you can see, I favour a cel-shade style of drawing with some gradient and soft shade mixed in. This piece has less gradient in it than some of my other pieces however because I wanted to keep the cel-shaded look more.
A detailed shot of Zoro, I went in and painted in his main scars but also added a few around since I feel he would have smaller ones littered around his skin.
I'm actually proud of the metal shine I gave Franky and I also gave him kind of a freckled shine for his hair piece to make it more chrome.
For the backgrounds I also did things by hand, I actually looked up how the Poneglyphs in the show really looked and replicated them in Robin's piece because I am really into detail.
