Welcome DragoArt members and visitors! Today we will be learning "how to draw Luffy" D. Monkey, step by step from One Piece! First off we will talk about why Luffy has a last name of monkey. Eiichiro Oda (Luffy’s creator) has said that the crazy and hyper Luffy resembles a monkey. He has a really big appetite too. This kinda reminds me of Goku from Dragon Ball Z. Most people figure out the pattern in Japanese manga that all protagonists or ‘good characters’ have a big appetite. I picked up this pattern by watching a lot of anime. He gets his nickname “Straw Hat Luffy” from his yellow-orange straw hat. Everyone recognizes him by his large comical eyes, straw hat and elongated torso. This makes part of his character. Luffy’s personality makes the other part of his character as well. When he was a child, he accidentally ate the Gomu Gomu no Mi. This is a devil fruit. It makes his body stretch like rubber. That’s the reason why his body looks so long and noodle-ish. Anyways, I drew this character because I noticed that no one has a tutorial on him. I wanted to make one so that everyone would know how to draw him. The tutorial on "how to draw Luffy" should be really easy for you. It is based on a novice level. A novice level is a beginner’s level of drawing. I know that the series ‘One Piece’ has been getting extremely popular. It is hosted on Cartoon Network, 4Kids, Funimation, and Odex. The series that are posted on these channels have different voice actors. Two of them are girls. The worst English dub was the 4Kids one. Thank god the funimation one is coming out on Cartoon Network! I can’t wait to see it! I laughed at the horrible 4Kids voices by the way, and they were terrible XD. You can also choose to read more about Luffy, and other One Piece characters if you want, or just go straight to the lesson, your choice. Well anyways, I hope this tutorial helps out! Have fun on drawing Luffy!
