As someone wanted this rebloggable, here’s my entry for the mugiwara fashion contest, which ended on january 19th and was run by undeadseanbean and teeething.
Thoughts while deciding the design:
I actually put a lot of things in here, that i personally like. So came the haircut and the parka. The colours are mostly the original character colours green, black and white/greyish with golden detail. The swords are to be presented by three colour matched suspenders and the scarf is directly inspired by the Haramaki, i added a flowery pattern to have it more modern. The stripes on the shirt were to remind of the scar beneath and there’s three because that’s just a fitting number for everything here. ;D Everything else was decided while working out the lineart from the sketch. Added the colours at the very last and had some hard time deciding on them. ;D
As this is my first ever try of doing such a thoughtfull redesign (i usually just slap on a one-colour-t-shirt on all characters), i’m really happy it was chosen for one winner place and also i had a looot of fun. : )
After this i also drew Sanji with a slight redesign.
