Chapel’s outfit here is a variation of the original outfit worn by Monkey D. Luffy, the protagonist of the manga One Piece, which Chapel was peddling in the comic “The Hard Sell”! Luffy’s vest is typically red, but he occasionally wears an alternate version with a yellow vest. I chose to draw the yellow vest here, because it contrasts nicely with Chapel’s red hair! Besides her outfit, there’s also another homage to Luffy drawn onto Chapel here. Can you catch it?

Also a reminder: if you live in the Bay Area, I’m teaching another comics course at the Art Museum of Los Gatos this Sunday, February 10 from 12pm to 3pm! Don’t miss it!

I also drew a bunch of different perspectives here, and worked very hard on it, so I hope you like this strip. What do you think?

The idea of this comic is so unique the way that chapel gets carried away like that it just sounds so funny😀

Stoat girl 2/10/13
Thank you so much!! It was great to see you at the classes and I look forward to seeing more of your comics! Keep reading Chapel!
 Emma  2/11/13
 
Now that i have been thinking about Chapel cosplaying, Miss Emma, have you ever thought of drawing Chapel doing a clothing swap with yourself?
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 2/10/13
That's actually a fun idea...I tend to post semi-weekly doodles on my Chapel facebook page, maybe that will be my next one! Thanks for the great idea, Taxil!
 Emma  2/11/13
no problem Miss Emma. If I can think of any more ideas, I'll let you know.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 2/11/13
 
I love the third panel! I really like the color and the dimensions in it :)
2/9/13
Thank you!! That's my favorite panel, too -- I think it turned out really well!
 Emma  2/9/13
 
Wow. chapel has great legs and great arms!
Miss L.S.P 2/9/13
Thank you! I wanted to draw her a little muscular, since that's what Luffy looks like.
 Emma  2/9/13
It's cool!
Miss L.S.P 2/9/13
hum... I think Chapel would be a better Nami, and Barnaby should be Luffy.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 2/9/13
Chapel's personality is WAY closer to Luffy's, which is why I chose her for that role.
 Emma  2/9/13
true, personality aside, appearnce wise my view would work better i would think
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 2/9/13
No, Chapel wouldn't dress or look the way Nami does.
 Emma  2/9/13
i was thinking more pre-time skip Nami, more like the first time she showed up. (way long time ago)
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 2/9/13
Luffy is still the best choice, which is why I drew it that way.
 Emma  2/10/13
Barnaby seems a touch more like what's-his-name the bounty hunter guy.
Clockwork Wombat 2/28/13
Ha ha, I was going to say she looked very muscular XD
Kirbiti 2/11/13
 
I actually really like Chapel's outfit and how her hairs all messy not sure why but I find the hair super pretty.
CrazyChick 2/9/13
I agree, actually!
Miss L.S.P 2/9/13
I'm glad...!
 Emma  2/9/13
I agree -- I didn't mean it to look so pretty, but it does!
 Emma  2/9/13
 
errrr... no scar on cheek... I give up.
Clockwork Wombat 2/8/13
But there IS a scar on her cheek! It's just very subtle. You must be a One Piece fan if you knew to look for the scar in the first place!
 Emma  2/8/13
(looks closely) .... i think i need a higher resalution to see it then. :-/
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 2/9/13
As to scars, they tend to come more often in two types. the faint types that can be hidden easy, and the ones that are next to impossable to hide with out cosmedic sugery. ther are others that land in between those two types however.

I don't have them on my face like Luffy, but i do have them on other places on my body that are normally uncovered. long story as how i got them.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 2/9/13
Not exactly a fan- more like I read the first few books with waning interest.
Clockwork Wombat 2/28/13
 
Miss Emma, your skill is growing. Luffy/Chapel is the most realistic we have seen of her yet. It is the closest we've seen Chapel to having real feet!

...btw Miss Emma, you DO make your bed and pick up your own room right?
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 2/8/13
Thank you, Taxil! Glad you like it :)
 Emma  2/8/13
Notice she doesn't answer...
CrazyChick 2/9/13
noted.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 2/9/13
That was a slip-up on my part -- the comment posted too early! I do clean and make my room/bed, don't worry.
 Emma  2/9/13
alright, now if Miss Emma can clean dishes and landry, she'll be a big step towards being independant adult woman. ^^ (don't get me wrong, i expect men to do the same. I myself do the same for myself and others)
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 2/9/13
I can do both dishes and laundry, thanks.
 Emma  2/9/13
good, just wanted to make sure, that's all.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 2/9/13
 
I love Chapel's pirate outfit! :)
NarwhalGirl 2/8/13
great name! LOVE narwhals!
Miss L.S.P 2/9/13
....narwhals bacon at midnight. sorry, i couldn't help myself. ^^;;;
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 2/9/13
I'm so happy you like it! I wanted to put in a Luffy homage there, and I'm glad I did.
