Yay, the real cover for volume 70 came out and not only did I guess the chapters right, but also the appearances of the characters Doflamingo, Nami, Usopp, General Franky, Luffy, Law, Baby 5 and Buffalo! Of course the positions and poses were different, but I never expected it to be anything like my version anyway. I can't be more happy about the new cover! And even though the original has even more characters than here in this fan-made version (the seats don't count^^), it doesn't even nearly look as crowded and awful as this. Still crowded of course, but not horribly crowded like this one. One of my favorite covers, definitely!
Because Doffy is there xD
Well, I changed a few things because I didn't like the old version anymore after seeing the original. First of all, I corrected the JUMP symbol (the pirate on the upper right corner). I drew that pirate logo with two eyes instead of the eyepatch, epic fail. And I changed it so that Doffy seems to jump out of the cover, looks a bit better imo.
But if you liked the old version more, it's here: [link]
Btw, was this piece by any chance featured anywhere? I just realized that it has over 5000 views...
How did that happen? I'd like to thank the one who reposted this, if it was reposted anywhere.

The result of not having free access to the internet for almost four days...
Well, I did like the cover for volume 69, but I was kind of disappointed still, because neither Vergo nor Mone, both important and main characters for the chapters covered in the volume, were on the cover but we had Smoker again instead, now the forth time in a row. I couldn't believe it. And why was monster Chopper there? He played hardly a role, Oda should have drawn him in his human form.
So I can just hope that Vergo and Mone will somehow find a way on the next cover, as well as Doflamingo of course. It's about time for him to appear on a cover! Then we need
Usopp, Nami and Franky on the cover, they were just awesome and they also need some cool appearances on covers. Baby 5 and Buffalo had quite some screentime and deserve to be on the cover. There is no need for Luffy and Law to be on the cover, but since there is no
cover without Luffy (besides the villain line-up covers and we had like two of them (of 69!) altogether) and since Law sure is an important character right now, it's hard to imagine that they won't be on there.
As for the four seats...they don't need to be on there, but I had some space at the bottom and found them really cool (can't wait to see them in action^^) so I just included them.
The title should be "The Most Dangerous Man", it should include chapters 691-700 and the background color should be dark blue.
I will be very happy if only some wished could came true : D
It took me forever to draw this and the tip of my not even two weeks old tablet-pen is almost gone already xD
I know the cover is way too crowded, but since almost every One Piece volume cover is crowded, I think it's okay. And no, I won't color this. It took me a whole day to just fill the fu*king black parts, I don't think I will ever have the nerve to color it whole, especially since I can't help but to shade evrything I color too detailed >.>
I bet I forgot to shade the one or other thing or forgot to fill some should-be-black parts, so if you notice anything strange (aside from false proportions, I'm still not that good at proportions^^") just tell me and I will correct it.
