The beauty of a character is an extra when drawing.
The One Piece franchise can be cataloged in many ways, but the truth is that short and brief are not the adjectives that stick the most, since both in anime and manga the work of Eiichiro Oda has exceeded a thousand deliveries, which has caused many characters that we have seen pass through the hands of the mangaka. And, as usually happens by mere statistics, there is always someone who resists more than another when drawing it.
Under this premise, the creator of One Piece has spoken about the hardest character to draw for him, being this Boa Hancock, the Pirate Empress, Oda having declared that you must be very careful when drawing it, which may have motivated that it takes a while without appearing in Oda’s work.
Boa Hancock presents a relationship of love and rejection towards Luffy
Be that as it may, it must be said about Boa Hancock that is one of the one of the Shichibukai, an organization formed by powerful pirates who acted as allies of the World Government, in exchange for protection and freedom of action in their activities, in addition to being the Serpent Princess in a kingdom inhabited only by women and who governs together with her two sisters.
Boa Hancock, in addition to having a tragic past (something common in One Piece), is considered as the most beautiful woman in the world in manga, thus giving rise to many falling in love with her as soon as they see her. The exception to the rule is Luffy, which caused her to fall in love with the captain of the Straw Hats.
And it is precisely this last point that makes it the most difficult character to draw by Oda, since being the most beautiful woman in the world, the mangaka strives to capture this idea in the drawing, this being an extra effort because the humans that cost him the most are women with black hair due to a drawing technique you must use with them. With this one could say that Boa Hancock had it all against him because of its beauty.
