This Kou En (Xiang Yan) piece of art is just too seductive my man even after seeing it a couple of times, i expanded your avy several times just to witness that skillfully constructed Quanrong armor, lol.
i like the many concepts you had in mind about Conqueror Of the East when you drew it, hopefully Hara won't actually disappoint us.
The fact Mihawk calls Shanks a has-been, Whitebeard regards their duels as legendary, and the Vivre Card alluding to Shanks as Mihawk's strongest opponent leads me to believe Shanks was top tier long before becoming Emperor.
Do you think Akainu's/Aokiji's awakening works similarily with Bullet's? E. g. disintegating and reintegrating entire landscapes into their element in which they can absorb the matter onto their body which will make their body massively stronger than before?
