OP: Sharpshooter by dragonsong12 OP: Sharpshooter by dragonsong12
This is for my sister. She's a shameless Usopp fangirl.

The image is inspired by a pose of Usopp from one of the ending themes. It is further inspired by our many discussions on why Usopp is never allowed to have a gun even though he's often shown with one in illustrations. There's plenty of reasons 1) it's his father's weapon, 2) he can't experiment with ammo as much (gun's pretty limited to bullets), but the reason I like to think it is most: he's too good of a shot. If he had a gun, every baddie in the show would be dead before they got within 30 feet of the crew. It amuses me to think he can't have a gun because he'd be too damned powerful. XD

I thought about doing the dead guys in Oda style, and that thought was intimidating. I even thought of making them actual characters...but after a lot of thought I realized I really didn't want to put too much detail into them. I wanted to show Usopp: the badass, not Usopp: the creepy murderer. So I made our dead guys shadowy and featureless.

BWAH! This is the last One Piece picture I have in my head at the moment. I PROMISE! We're done for a while ^_^;
