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:

Thanks! They were damned fun to draw too! Poor Zoro, but that's the way it'd go if he showed up! :D

I like some of the action in these, that and your anatomy is improving with each new picture. I love Zoro in there, too. It's just a tiny little picture of him but it looks great!
And I've seen some baaad AMVs, I'm glad that yours is not one of them! It was well-synced and well put-together, plus very amusing. And it makes me want to watch One Piece again..

I'm glad you enjoyed - both the pic and the video! They were fun to make, it all came together much MUCH faster than I expected.

"And it makes me want to watch One Piece again.."

I'm not sure if I should say YAY or apologize for this. ^^;

It's like my fantasy taken right out of my head. Sanji and Nami swing dancing :D Sanji kicking Zoro out was icing on the cake :3 Too bad the download didn't work for me, either.

Yay! This was tons of fun to draw too. Nami didn't come out quite how I hoped, but Sanji works out pretty good I think. I'm honestly not sure why I felt the need to add Zoro, except that I thought it was funny. :D I'm glad you enjoyed!

I uploaded the video to a different site, if you're still interested, though I'm not sure this one will work any better, I've never tried it before.

Glad you liked the picture! :D

Great work on the video! Those 10 seconds of your art made it that much cuter :3

Yay! Thank you! The swing dancing part is the part of the video I'm most unsure about, I'm so glad people like it!
And also, an additional yay that the second link worked! :dance: Good times!

Love the picture, unfortunately the video wouldn't download for me, is it something to do with firewalls?!? I have no idea, anyway, the poses look great as does the colouring. Must have taken you ages but it sure looks good!

It didn't take as long as I thought it would, because I didn't fully ink any of the pictures (just a straight outline for the most part) but it still took a while. ^^; I'm glad they came out looking okay, it was fun to do!

Sucks that the video didn't work. I uploaded it to a different source if you are still interested, though I don't know if it will work any better. (Never used this one before)

Cool :) I enjoyed the video, especially the references to the lollipop, quite humorous

The hard part was having to search through 10 of the 4Kids episodes to find good shots of him with the lollipop...but I persevered! *strikes heroic pose* :D
