Oh yes, yes, yes, yes, YES Daddy WB, we will have a Merry Christmas RIGHT NOW. Just 'cause you told us to!!!
I know we squee-ed plenty in your actual presence but this is just SOOO much yum and so much epic and so much win. XD I cannot emphasize enough the extent to which you totally picked the right character! XD And then went on to make him SUPAAAAAAAAAH gorgeous, in his manly way! Beautiful pose, lovely coloring, phenomenal shading on the phenomenal muscles (especially the abs!!! oh jeezus! XD the "blond who looks like trouble" that you mentioned would just love to be buried in those abs, I'm sure).
THANKYOUTHANKYOUTHANKYOU!!!!! I keep having fantasies about he and Armstrong meeting. XD They should have a tea party and talk about mustaches and other grand and regal things.
Awww, I'm so happy you like it. I looked through your art and then Wiki on One Piece to choose the right character for holiday greetings. I love the look of Whitebeard, so fun to draw. Yes, definitely need to draw that meeting. Can Sig come too?
He's known as the world's strongest man, he gives free hugs to his kids after they freakin' stab him. It took half his head being blown off, 500 bullets, 42 canonballs, and 300 swords to kill him....... and not a damn thing touched his back. When he was nearly 80 years old, he waged war on the entire world just to save one adoptive son..... and scared the living shit out of every damn thing there. His last request was to hear his son tell him "was I a good father?"
TL;DR version: He's badass embodied, loves his kids and nearly sank an entire island without breaking a sweat.
