Where I am Now by soumakyo Where I am Now by soumakyo
This is Nami, in front of the crew new boat's aquarium, reflecting on how far she came since she becale a pirate.

And yet one thing doesn't seem to change.

--------------

Dammit this took long ! and you know why ? Because I drew not one, not two, but five -goddamned- outfits for this Nami. Getting the reflection right (well as right as possible) every time was a bitch.

So you can see all the outfits at my website (in french, but it doesn't really matter this time, right ?) : [link]

Really beautifull picture. She really came far until now, but it seems like her ambition is still the same. =D

This is really good!
The coloring and background and lineart and everything.
I can't believe you drew so many different outfits for her!
They all look terrific, dood.
The one you choose looks the best in my opinion.
The Water7 arc outfit with the tie is my second favorite. =D
+fav
Going to check out the rest of your galley and give you a watch now!

This is beautiful! I love every version of it. I definitely like how you changed her to fit the manga. A lot of people seem to think this was aging, when it was just Oda's drawing style changing. (which was fully revealed as fact in the "casual discovery" colorspread which shows Nami during her first appearance with huge boobies like she has now)

As I said, this is very beautiful. While I largely cel-shade I really wanna learn how to paint like this.

Are my eyes playing tricks on me, or do I spot a nipple in the reflection in the Skypiea version?

HOLY NUMBER 6, BATMAN! This is hawt. My new favorite pic. Kinda wish you did the sleek back hair style she had in the manga during the bath scene instead of the anime's version.

soumakyo Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2009
weird, I did use the manga as ref, though. Well I guess I didn't want to bother to redo her front hair completely and just went for a "wet-ish" feel... damn, now your message kinda makes me want to do it !

J'adore (entre autres ^^) tous les petits détails du dessin (taches de rousseur, grains de beauté, boucles d'oreille...) How impressive!

Well, time to have a look at your gallery!

Très fort le reflet, c'est bien négocié de partout, l'effet est saisissant!

Reg, l'elfe qui se demande si en vrai elle est gauchère ou droitière

La compo est très bien dans ce sens, je te taquinais. ^_^

Reg, l'elfe qui pense qu'elle peut très bien faire comme ça juste pour se regarder dans le reflet de l'aquarium
