This originally started as me just wanting to draw Pony Pony Chopper in... whatever we wanna call this art style. However, I eventually got to humming the BBBFF song as I worked, and that turned to thoughts of One Piece. And that into thoughts of Ace. It sorta fits the scene perfectly, doesn't it? So I just decided to turn my idea into a quick little background. I still can't believe Ace was killed right after he was rescued. I never expected it at all, but I guess that just goes to show how unpredictable Oda can be. Oh. And Luffy's in his normal clothes since the yellow shirt didn't contrast very well; it was an artistic choice. At any rate: enjoy.
