Seriously, if you guys haven’t seen the movie the God of Cookery do give it a try. Somehow I feel Sanji would definitely fit into that world as a martial arts chef. It’s a shame that we only had about two decades of good Hong Kong movies that gave us a glimpse of what anime could look like in real life (although Stephen Chow continued to do so well into the 2000s).
Once again I decided to go for an anime painting style, the challenge this time being that I would not look at references for the coloring style. For the next planned painting I also wish to imitate a 90s anime look but I haven’t quite settled on which style yet. I might just end up doing more than one, we’ll see.
Sanji came to mind as soon as I saw that the prompt was Chef. I wasn’t too sure how I would go about it, but I remembered the movie The God of Cookery by Stephen Chow. If you haven’t seen it, give it a try.
Just to change it up a bit let’s draw a guy this time, and let’s try a new angle (as advised by my younger brother). For this drawing I decided try out a new technique I saw a couple of years ago. This I believe is what they call foreshortening. It worked amazingly well so that I could draw out Luffy’s arm and finger pointing at us. When I finished drawing I then shaded the drawing by using ink and brush. Now Luffy is ready to move forward and become the king of the pirates.
