Thanks guys. I have a great idea of what info was already posted now. I'll get to work.
Look for notes on the sketches coming here.Chores
Robin and Nami take turns doing their own laundry every day .
The boys do it all together once a week.
Oda planned to redesign Merry from the start. He even has a sketch from the start of the series that's DAMN close to the final version.ORIGINAL FULL CREW
Pic 1 & 2
In these first two pix they have no names, simply jobs. This was his idea for the crew TWO YEARS before the start of the series. Interesting notes. The sniper, who became Usopp, is listed as the First Mate. We can see Brook there with a kamikaze headband and no afro. The creepy dude on the left appears to be a botanist or perhaps gardener, not sure, it simply says he likes plants. Also note the words 'sniper' crossed out by his name. The aspects of this character would, as we're just finding out now, be entirely absorbed by the character Usopp who is starting to use plants. The little guy on the far left is actually the Shipwright, can you believe it? Now we know where Oda thought up the idea of those catfish in his Hacchan story!!!
Here we see a later picture of the crew together with heights and some names AS WELL AS NUMBERS. This is from just after the start of the series.
Note Brook came before Franky. We can tell this is still before he solidified many of the designs. These three images are a goldmine for piecing together how Oda works.
The idea of dried out Luffy came from Oda's early idea of what Luffy would look like if he didn't eat for only 3 days.
Originally Chopper and Nami also had their shadows put into zombies in TB. In fact, the wedding dress was supposed to be worn by her zombie, not Nami. Sanji's original zombie was the armored General Zombie with the long neck and small horned head while Zoro's was the Wolverinish-looking zombie. Chopper's is hard to tell. Oars it appears at one point had Iva-style hair.
The Luffy you saw in the first image I posted in my first post was actually one form of Nightmare Luffy. Another form had him dressed looking like Freddy.
Nami was originally planned to be a battle-axe fighter. O_O
You saw the pic but originally Chopper was to be a striped reindeer.
LOL! Franky was originally planned to be a guy toughened by a long time in prison that could make AWESOME weapons but couldn't use them properly. Oh please give us that character someday!
Brook was originally planned to debut as a part of Buggy's crew. The idea for him came from his time working on Rurouni Kenshin. The origin was a single joke, "Sore ga kotsu!" Means, 'that's the trick!' OR 'that's the bone!'.
Usopp gets short-ended with 'cool down' chapters doesn't he??? He was suppsed to MEET AND TALK WITH GARP after Enies Lobby at W7!!!! They would have a scene where Usopp happened upon him and, worried about his dad, asked indirectly if the man known as Yasopp was still alive. Somehow Garp figures out who he is and after telling him that 'Chaser Yasopp' was still alive he leaves saying, "Take care of my grandkid."
HOLY FUCK! As recently as the start of the series ie. still in Chapter 1, Roger's mustache WAS in fact NOSE HAIR! The situations revolving around Roger became quite serious so it was changed to a real mustache. This lends some weight to the question of Ace's intended heritage.
Crocus was originally called Potpouri(sp)
There was going to be a 'Don Krieg 9000' where he modified himself into a mecha of sorts. The sketch, in spirit, somewhat resembles the current Franky.
Mr. 2 was originally Mr. Happy Birthday.
Maple Reed was a female sword fighter fish WOMAN that became Hacchan. Maybe she's who Hacchan spoke of at Gyojin Island!!!!!! We'll find out soon!
Mohda from Ace's story was drawn 'older' in Oda's notes. Will she appear again?
They say to watch the moon in the series because it was never full before Drum. That was intended so the final scene could be as it was.
Tom was originally a human and his policy was that he'd never build a warship. But as his design changed, so did his personality.
Original T-Bone was complete opposite. Super macho and only looked out for himself.
You guys know about the older Chimney and beautiful Cocoro.
OHHHHHMYGOD! There's a CP9 early design and VERSUS page!
Here were the original matchups:
Shakim (early Jabra)- Zoro
Apollo (early Kumadori)- Chopper
The damage from his encounter with Tom was what was supposed to make Spandam look like a Panda.
Moriah was originally a priest with a split personality (thank you for not being unoriginal Oda). Then later he was a tactician with 4 kinds of traps. Eventually I imagine that became the 4 ghouls.
Doflamingo was originally a rapper.
An early masked Shichibukai became Moriah.
Original Kuma! Just like Oda said in the interview!!!!
Yeah that was indeed Jinbe. There are a bunch of different versions. Personally? We ended up with the weakest-looking one.
Margaret was intended to have the Neko Neko Fruit Model Black Cat.
Hancock was originally much older. I'll venture a guess Shackey absorbed her history?
Marines started out looking more like Mafia members than the Marines we know.
John Giant looked similar to the long-bearded giant from LG.
Sengoku looked VEEEEEEEERY similar to Woopslap(sp) at one point.
Kizaru was originally (like the actor's best known roles) very cheerful.
You know Dandan was gonna be a guy. Oda also drew a young SMOKIN' hot version of her. Same hair and all.
Magellan originally looked more like a traditional Satan, smaller framed and such. Basically same overall design though.
Inazuma was originally a crab Zoan.
Iva's design was basically set from the start.
Ace was originally Portgas D. Lang/Rangu?
A shitload of WB crew sketches follow.
First thing decided about Teach wasn't even his name, it was his laugh. That pic from a few days back was indeed BB. There was a version of BB with an eyepatch, but because of his 'reason' Oda dropped it.
There are rough sketches of the crew that combined with his handwritten notes are outta this world with speculation. Many MANY bits and pieces are similar to the final product.
Of interest, BB's original name was Everything D. Teach.
Yami Yami power was decided upon from long ago.
There was a babe, probably from Wano who was a swordswoman in BB's crew. The woman would become Devon.
AND THAT'S THE SKETCHES! If you're wondering there are sketches for EVERYTHING I listed here. I'm gonna get some sleep. You guys can look forward to all the pix when Ulrila scans the whole thing. They're BAD-ASS.
