Taking an openCanvas break with Sunshine, made humanized Arlong The Saw.
I know I never reblog things on this account, but this demands sharing
tl;dr, these are the relevant bits:
"My self-worth online is measured by my ability to draw One Piece fanart. If I’m not doing One Piece fanart I feel responsible for updating as soon as possible so my personal worth won’t plummet."
"I don’t know what this means for this blog, but I do need to break free of this whole “oh my god I have to meet all these people’s expectations” bind I’ve put myself in. My self-worth should not revolve around what other people think of my art, and if that means I should put drawing One Piece aside for a time, then so be it. I have over 1300 followers on my art blog and the thought of displeasing so many of you is intimidating and kind of terrifying. I’ve never been “popular” before so losing that kind of social affirmation actually really does scare me. But I have GOT to get over this association of self-worth with outside forces, even if that force is as powerful as the One Piece fandom."
"I’m going to force myself to work on things that nobody cares about for a while. That doesn’t mean I’m going to totally stop drawing One Piece (oh god no, I don’t think I’m even capable), but it probably does mean that you’re going to see a lot of things that are not One Piece.”
"If you don’t want to see things that aren’t OP, block the tag “wait its not one piece” on your tumblr savior or xkit. I put that tag on ALL art pieces that aren’t One Piece, so you won’t be inundated with things you’re not interested in."
Reblogging on here because relevant.
"Consider the subtleness of the sea; how its most dreaded creatures glide treacherously hidden beneath the loveliest tints of azure…"

Mohmoo always struck me as a really big leopard seal combined with a some sea lion and some river dolphin. Plus you know, horns.
Added a tiny Arlong because why not.
Reblogging here because why not
((remember when I first started this blog and said I was going to stick strictly to canon? The second I broke that promise was the second askthenavigator became fun))
(I feel the exact same way. Ask blogs are meant to be fun, not only for the people that follow them but for their creators too, and I think that part gets overlooked far too often. The muns’ enjoyment of their blog is frequently put on the backburner in an effort to please the easily-annoyed and extremely-critical anon masses, and that ain’t right, yo. There often comes a time when trying so hard to keep them as in-character as possible just becomes more of a chore than enjoyable. I nearly dropped this one right before I just went all-out with the OOC headcanons and oh god it is like ten million times more fun.)
My favorite One Piece bad guy is Arlong. He’s the coolest.
"T- that can’t be good."
"On the contrary, I do love a bad boy~~”
I’ve been on such a major Arlong shipping kick recently lol
I’ll just leave this here…
There are plenty of things I could say but I don’t know how effective they would have been. After all -
“We do not deal with creatures of logic, but with creatures bristling with prejudice and motivated by pride and vanity.”
I don’t know what you’re talking about
Credit for Arlong’s clothes design goes to the amazing Sarah Preussler. Go check out her stuff it’s fanTAStic <3 (omg dis design is amazing I love it and I’m sorry I kind of ruined it but THAT IS THE AMAZING POWER MY HANDS HAVE) orz
And thank you Liam for sending me the ask for the excuse to draw it. 8D
((Not that it has any bearing on Arlong, but I’ve noticed Sanji has a habit of antagonizing the guys he cares about the most and I think it’s adorable))
Those package delivery birds sure are getting later and later these days.
((oh man I’d wanted to make a big long super-deep multipanel answer out of this one but I ran out of steam OTL ))
((also ask-jinbe is a new askblog, you should check them out their art is great))
