OP - swing dancing by dragonsong12 OP - swing dancing by dragonsong12
I drew 12 images of Sanji and Nami swing dancing for an AMV I made. I felt I'd put enough work on them that they deserved to be in the gallery too, but I didn't really think anyone (including me) wanted to see 12 variations on the same theme. Especially since they were made for a video, so I wasn't careful about the details.
Hence, you get them all crammed into one picture. :D

APOLOGIES TO ANY SWING DANCERS OUT THERE! I made these by watching swing dance videos online and sketching stick figures in various poses, then doing the drawings based on the stick figures, so some of the poses may not be completely accurate. Please forgive me if I've mangled your art form.

Also, some of the images corrupted a bit when I shrank them. This always happens to some degree and I usually go in and dutifully clean them up, but there were SO. MANY. LAYERS on this that it was too much to try to sort them out. (5 or 6 layers per image, and layered in such a way that I couldn't squish the layers together and keep the image intact.) So I left them. Apologies for some ugliness around the lines because of it. Maybe someday I'll go back in and fix it...

If you'd like to see the video I made these for (even though they only appear in about 10 seconds of it...all that work for ten seconds :D), you can download it here [link]

Omigosh, that video was fantastic!! There are so few good AMVs out there (or maybe I'm looking in all the wrong places), but yours was just phenomenal! As for your picture, I laughed at Sanji kicking Zoro off the dance floor. :aww:

I know a really cute Sanji AMV to the song "Lollipop," but it was taken off of YouTube. I was fortunate to download it before that happened; if anyone wants to see it, just say so and I'll see about putting it up for download.

Yay! Thanks! I'm not sure what possesed me to put Zoro in there, it just seemed right, you know? :D I'm glad you enjoyed it!

Is this the rock song "Lollipop"? or another? (There's so many by that title) either way I'd be interested to see - more Sanji FTW! :dance: Let me know if it's available anywhere!

Uhh, it's the song where they say "lollipop" over and over and then it gets stuck in your head for days. o - o At least, that's what happens to me.

Since I used RealPlayer to download it, it's an .flv file. I don't know if it will play in anything other than RealPlayer, but here it is. [link]

It definitely doesn't hold a candle to your video, but the concept is cute and I love how Sanji lights his cigarette every time there's the little pop sound. Enjoy. :aww:
