heyyy sorry guys updates will be slow for a while

i’m moving ten miles uptown & not taking the pc computer to which my tablet of eight years is connected—i’m going to buy myself a new tablet that’ll work with my mac shortly (though i won’t have SAI which is p upsetting) and will be able to draw more often again then, until which point i’ll have to drive over to parents’ house to be able to do so

thanks for your patience!

i spend a lot of time lately thinking about how of all the supernovas law probably has the least amount of interest in the one piece, mainly because he almost certainly can’t imagine anything past killing doflamingo & has clearly been expecting to die trying to do so (no one plans a thanatos gambit so extensively without first making the assumption that they’re likely to not make it out the other side, after all)

the top sketch you can take as you will it’s entitled heartborrower.png in my files it’s a real problem lies down

For some reason all of that sounds really cute :’D (shlyappih in particular) A true travesty is the German “Torao”, they went with.. Trabert. Tra from Trafalgar and Bert as in the name Bert, which is regarded as one of the most stupid sounding names.

As a side note to name translations, poor Roronoa actually became Lorenor in German, too.

LORENOR AND traBERT haHAhaa oh my fucking goD i’m imagining the javert soundclip from the les mis film and wheezing

neither “torao” nor “roronoa” actually change in russian because all of those sounds transliterate accurately (торао/трао, ророноа) even though трафальгар in full sounds different (i think it’s actually v pretty, though, it has a much softer sound in the middle than “trafalgar” because of the soundless ь)

cal-cla replied to your post: “russian translations of one piece must be fucking incredible to read…”:
This is hilarious, as opposed to the mess that is spanish (they don’t have compound words) where you get “banda de pirata de sombrero de paja” just for “strawhat pirate crew” (and then there’s German… “Strohhutpiratenbande”) (I like translations)

oh my god that’s SO LONG though strohhutpiratenbande is delightful

you can’t quite say strawhat pirates in russian either, it’d have to be “пираты соломенной шляпы” (“piratih solomennoj shlyappih”. god, there’s like three instances of sounds you can’t transliterate adequately in that) or maybe “соломношляпные пираты” (“solomnoshlyapnihye piratih”) which is very slang-y but doesn’t sound as weirdly formal as the former, which translates back to english literally as “pirates of the straw hat”

(other great fucking transliterations, though: “санджи” for sanji, which sounds more like “sandjih” because there’s no way to write “sanji” even if russians can say all the correct sounds

"лау" is the saddest, though. "la-oo", poor law)

russian translations of one piece must be fucking incredible to read because that means law refers to luffy as соломенная шляпа-я which sounds HILARIOUS (“solomennaya shlyapaya” i’M jUST)

wait WHAT WHY

соломенная шляпа is the direct translation of “strawhat”! and there’s a “ya” sound in a lot of russian words (often as an ending) since it’s just the letter “я” (though americans are GUARANTEED to pronounce it TOTALLY WRONG when it’s in words by putting the accent in the wrong place)

incidentally, ”я” is also the russian word for “i”

anyway tl;dr law would be adding -я to words and that’s SO FUNNY when “strawhat” already has that sound in it twiCE

can’t draw for shit tonight TOO TIRED four hours of sleep and six hours of intensively shelving hundreds of textbooks is 2much for this feeble brain i can’t be bothered to deal with my glitchy tablet and subpar art skills at this time
i leave you with this trash scribble because the way luffy acts towards law in general is adorable 100% of the time and i am in aromantic soulmate hell

i was walking back to my car after work today and a med student in scrubs that also happened to remind me of law in terms of appearance walked past me, which made me wonder what characters law might actually tolerate as a flatmate if he existed in the modern day as a med student/intern
decided he’d totally houseshare with perona (and, like, bepo probably, but regardless i’m sure they’d all be perfect for each other because it would just be dead silent all the time, everyone would have headphones in), and gregory suggested that perona would be a design student and i totally agree that art is right up her alley because her sense of aesthetics is fucking impeccable
anyway tl;dr i absolutely adore perona and it’s fucking criminal i haven’t drawn her yet, here she is, feel free to delete my tangential comment if you wanna reblog
