I don’t have too much to say about this Ask, sorry. I feel like the One Piece characters who are in the NH Studio would likely still hang out together in their new environment, so she probably wouldn’t miss them. Maybe some of them I haven’t drawn, but I’ve got a good chunk of the crew employed. ^_^ Her first appearance in my work was a crossover pic with Videl, so if she has any friends outside of the Star Hat crew, it’s probably her? (Though the Ask wasn’t specifically about friends, just asking how she’s doing.)
The Near Hentai Monthly Lady for December 2016 is Nico Robin from One Piece. While working out various sketches for what to do with her, I hit upon the idea for this pic, which necessitated adding Nami. Since nobody seemed to mind her inclusion, I ran with it, and this is the end result. I tried my best to make it clear that it’s Sanji fucking Nami and Zoro fucking Robin, but who know’s if it’s clear without being spelled out. All four characters are sporting their attire from the Dressrosa arc, as requested in the cBox.
I’ve mentioned before that I have many unfinished pieces floating around in my work folder, and for some time this was one of them. I drew this one all the way bag in August of 2014, and never got around to coloring it until just now. After that much time I usually abandon a pic, but this one held up pretty well, mostly due to it being a solo piece. I think if I had drawn her with one or more other characters, the quality would’ve suffered and I’d be embarrassed to post it now.
That being said, the colors are brand new and I think they save the pic. This one’s a bit of a departure from what I usually do, partly because of its time capsule-esque history. I don’t do many pin-up/softcore pics anymore, and it’s also been a long time since I’ve done anything with One Piece. However, if the response is good, I could see myself doing more of both in the future.
