Song that kinda sorta goes with it (not really but here): youtu.be/c9tMCR3MhjQ I was just listening to this and other similar songs while drawing. c:

So this is my entry for Round 2 of the One Piece OC Tournament- OP OC TOURNAMENT - SECOND ROUND I can't believe I actually made it to the second round, and I wanted to do something special this time... Last time I submitted a poem, so this time I really wanted to draw something. The theme was 'FIGHT TOGETHER' and I took it very literally. :D Lol 

This is a scene from the next upcoming chapter (Ch 18) of Shiori's fanfic, Shivered Timbers. I'm still writing it and hopefully I'll have it posted soon. So it's a drawing of something that hasn't technically happened yet, it's like a glimpse into the future... Shiori is getting ready to do a combo attack with her Nakama, Chouko. They're probably best friends, tbh. Both are my OCs.
In the story, Chouko is a member of Whitey Bay's crew (she ate the Moth Moth Devil Fruit, if you're curious) and her Captain took Shiori in to help train her. The two were friends since childhood and now they are working on developing a combo attack consisting of wind and snow. I was going to name their attack Blizzard or Arctic something but now I forgot what I decided to call it. xD
They're on a giant glacier where they ran away from some enemies (you'll find out who they're fighting when Ch 18 gets here...) 

:damphyr: Update! Chapter 18 is now posted here: Shivered Timbers - Chapter 18

I really hope you like it. I started this on Nov. 1st and am only just now finishing it, I've been working on it steadily all month. :faint: It has 76 layers.

sorry if im a little late comenting on this but HOLY FRIGIN WOWWWWW Kaline i just cannot even believe how amazing this is! :heart: you've really outdone yourself and it's been amazing watching your skills as an artist continue to grow. i know you prefer writing more but you're so good at drawing too, and this really proves your dedication to an idea, i love it! :love: there's so much detail in this, i feel like it's truly a masterpiece. the way you captured everything going on in the next chapter is so exciting and i cant wait to read it when it's ready! good luck with the tournament also 

shiori's sweet little smile is especially heartwarming and you've captured their personalities so well here. :) Chouko's wings look awesome too. idk what you did with their eyes, but DO NOT stop! omg they're so perfect and sparkly and shiny and kawaii desu~ and their hair looks pretty great too and that attack looks dangerous yet beautiful, there are just so many things to love about this drawing

Wow, thank you so much for leaving me such a sweet comment, omg! :love: Idk about that... I haven't been drawing that long because I was afraid of it before, but that seems silly to me now. So I guess I have improved, even if it's just in attitude or something. I'm glad you noticed all the little details that I put into this. A masterpiece is going too far though. xD 

Hopefully I'll manage to get Ch 18 done soon so this scene will make a little more sense. :meow: Idk what's with Shiori's expression here, maybe it's just how I was feeling while I was working on this. I wanted it to be cute but also cool, so I tried. Eyes are always the hardest part for me, I guess because I really want them to look a certain way but it feels kinda like I'm always disappointed in how they turn out. Idk why... But I really appreciate all the kind words, you are too sweet! :huggle: I can't thank you enough, omg! :blush:

no prob. you've improved in so many ways, pick one lol. it's amazing how far you've come since those days. i still remember sitting behind you in class & seeing you never talk to anyone- hell, you barely even looked up from your notebook and you were always writing and doodling little things but you wouldn't let anyone see. it's great to see you finally overcoming your fears & getting your work out there, letting it be seen by everyone. im proud of you :heart: 

i love what you're doing with the story so far & im rooting for you all the way! the join.me was fun, you should do more of those. :) i hope you will. you did great with her expression here & especially her eyes omg! you shouldn't be disappointed, they came out really great this time and very profesional looking.

Awww you're too sweet! :iconblushuplz: Ahh, the good old days, haha... I was afraid to let people see because I didn't think I was at a level where anyone would take it seriously anyway, I still don't feel like I am just yet... But one thing's for certain- I will always keep trying. ♥ That really means the world to me Nicky, thank you. :huggle: Idk what to even say... 

I'm hoping I'll have time to finish Chapter 18 tonight, but I guess we'll see how it goes. I'm planning on doing more Join.Me's in the future, but I don't want to do them so often that people get sick of them and stuff. I'm so glad you think it came out good, I was worried about this one but it's the best I can currently do, so hopefully it'll be good enough. c:

well from what i saw, you were always good enough- and still are. :) that's why i'll always be one of your biggest fans. it's really inspiring how you never give up no matter what kinds of problems you're faced with, you always find some way to rise to the top anyway. 

i can't wait to read it! i'm sure the fight will be interesting and hopefully after that we'll get to see a little more of the romantic type scenes & all. you should know better than to even worry, you'll do great! :heart:

You're so sweet. ^^ Well, I guess I have been through a lot, but I will never give up. And hopefully it will be. This chapter is just giving me so much trouble right now, it's like a fight just to write it. xDD I'll figure it out though. lol

It looks like a dancing battle. Or a regular battle with fashionable poses :D
The designs are good-looking.

Wow! This turned out really nicely <3 It's very well done!  I love the cuteness of the characters and their super powered attack POW POW! LOL It's seriously an awesome picture~

Thank you so much! :love: I worked really hard to make this come out the way I originally envisioned. I thought it would be neat to have them do a combo attack, especially since they're friends. :D I'm so happy that you like it, yay! :dance:

Woow this looks really awesome! The design looks great!

Thank you so very much! ^^ I'm really happy you like it, I was worried that maybe her design wasn't original enough. I had a lot of trouble with it since I've never drawn her before and I have difficulty fitting more than one person in a drawing. It was a challenge for sure. ;w;

Yeah I can understand it was a challenge, I think it worked out fine! I think the color combination is very strong, it gives me an earthy feeling, but also magical, because of the pink!^^ 

I think you did a great job on a first try with 2 characters in one drawing!:heart:

I really like the design on both of your OCs and nice to meet a new OC of yours! Chouko has some very nice colors , design and Devil fruit power :D Great work!

That's so sweet, thank you so much! I'm really happy you like her design. ;w; Chouko didn't come out as I'd originally planned, but it kind of works. This is probably the most detailed drawing I've ever done. It was a challenge but I'm thrilled that you're happy with the outcome. c:

You're very welcome! I can see all the hard work that was put into it and oh, don't worry about your character not meeting what you exactly expected and wanted; that's the great thing about having an OC. You can always develop it and change it for your own liking (it's for sure something I do alot)

Great work again :)

Thanks! I really appreciate that.

Oh that's a good point, I could just change it later on if I dislike something too much... I tried to just make her design true to the way she's described in the story, to the best of my ability anyway. She's actually partially based on a pet moth that I had a kid (yeah, I was a weird kid, lol). I like putting pieces of myself or my past into my OCs, that makes it so much more fun and interesting. xD

Oho, that's quite interesting actually xD I never thought that moths can be friendly or pets~but hey anything is possible :D
And yeh I know that feeling xD I usually make the personalities of my characters based on/inspired by real people or just some character I read about or saw. Makes it easier to write their dialog (just think what that personality would do, and there ya go)
xD

Yeah it was really weird... This huge moth (with yellow wings and blue spots on them) followed me around for a long time and kept landing on me and it wouldn't leave... It stayed with me even when I went outside and even if I put it outside, it would try to get back in. If I left it outside, it would be waiting for me by the door the next day, usually stuck to the wall. I don't know why. So eventually I just kept it and my family was like HAHA WHAT, you know... Then they kinda just went with it. xD And I used to feed it with flowers, and sometimes Q-tips and cotton balls as a treat (you can give them water that way too, by soaking it or spraying it lightly) which it loved. c:

That's true. It's especially fun when you get inspired by people you've known in your life. Even if they're no longer around. ^^ And you're right, it does make it much easier to think of what people would say. I even do that with fictional characters sometimes, like I'll relate them to a person I know or used to know, and it helps when writing their dialogue and everything.

Oh god, that sounds super cute xD Sometimes animals would get attached to people randomly, its quite nice. I saw a video once of a guy who was always followed by a swan; wherever he went she would be right beside him. Thats so nice of you tho xD to have taken care of it in such way. 

I know right! It makes everything much simpler and easier to relate and remember .
