I love how you did the background, and I just really like the expression on his face. It speaks of peace and contentment, and I do wish we had been able to see more of this side of him before it all went utterly down the drain. :(

"I've lived a life that I'll never regret." - such true words, I honesty can't think of a more fitting thing to put under this image. And I miss Ace like crazy~ \\(Q3Q)// But he died very honorably, and I really think he wouldn't have wanted to pass on in any other way than by saving the life of his beloved little brother :iconhappytearsplz: ...I'm still angry at Oda for taking him out, though XD

Thank you very much. I think the way he died is so- 'easy' and tragic, its not a heroic kind of death (and i was pissed off too lol more like, shocked). But death is never pretty, and I think Oda do need to 'wipe-out' someone very close to Luffy to progress until now, in this way the sentiment last longer; the death is heart-breaking but the memories left behind is heart-warming
...and so i rant a lot ^^;

You're most welcome! <3 Oh, but don't worry - I can rant more than you XD :

Well, true, not a 'heroic' death, but it still was honourable - because he died for the person he loved most. And yes, I was very shocked when I saw it, too. I cried. Or, 'roared with water/tear-falls' would be more like it. Definitely not 'pretty', quite bloody, actually, but I liked how he didn't really give in to the physical aspect of the pain and smiled, just for the sake of everyone he cared about... Awwww, f*ck this /crycrycryagain/

But yes, Oda really needed to make Lu lose somebody he loved so that he could 'grow', and this is exactly what made it so sad - because Ace was just some twenty year-old kid who had yet to start living his life to the fullest and achieve his dreams.

But this is also very important to the story - because One Piece, despite all the things nearly everyone says - is, in fact, realistic. Not everybody has a happy end. Some people become victims to the world. Ace was like this, but he still did his best and tried (successfully) to be happy at the very end. Even when he hadn't really did all that much for the world, even when he wasn't some 'hero', which he easily could have been if he'd lived longer, seeing how he's strong and determined and stuff. But even strong people sometimes lose fights.

It really does hit you hard, but it is how the world works at times. Most of the time, actually. To this day, I consider Ace to be the most tragic character in j-media/manga/anime, for me, at least.

Though I think that, despite all the whining Oda gets from us, his fans, he knew what he was doing when he made poor freckle-boy lay down in peace... And in the end, I'm still mad at him XD

Aww, this is so pretty/sweet. I love it because he looks happy/at peace, plus i really love how you did the edges of the picture and it's not just a big square. The coloring feels very gentle-- I don't know how else to describe it, but I think the feeling it evokes is perfect for this.

"No Regrets"... words to live by...

Your understanding of the human condition and the 'spark' you give to your art make you the Master that you are.

And in your piece, i see no Bitter emotion, no Desirable greed, no Tempting love..... nothing to say except that your piece is......... Piece.
You're at ease, no problems in your direction, you have the right to relax, and nothing can keep you. As to say, "You are a Master that I, or anyone else, will never soon forget."
