Smoker’s been around since the beginning, claiming dominance as a man whether against a friend a foe.
Throughout the years I’ve made the slender, cool guys, like Sabo, Sanji, and Law. But this time, I wanted to switch gears to make a more beefy type of guy.
In terms of sculpting, his boots, jacket, coat, cigars, and weapon all had their role in expressing this character, so it was a breeze for me.
But once I started, there were so many parts that I had to make, that it became tedious.
I hope I was able to bring out Smoker’s tough masculinity.
