Monkey D. Luffy, also called "Straw Hat," is the main protagonist of the anime and manga series One Piece. He is the founder of the Straw hat Pirates, and he dreams of finding treasure and becoming the Pirate King.

Luffy has a childlike personality but quickly gained a reputation as an up-and-coming pirate. He is small in stature, yet strong, and he can use the Devil Fruit Gears to increase his strength. He is also agile and not afraid to take a beating. He also possesses an "uncanny instinct" or situational awareness in battle.

Luffy also has a superhuman ability. After eating a Devil Fruit as a child, he became able to stretch and bend his body like rubber. It took years of training for him to master and control this ability. He can also summon haki, "a power that lies dormant in all creatures."

Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing Monkey D. Luffy from One Piece

How to Draw Monkey D. Luffy from One Piece Step 01

1. Begin by drawing Luffy's eyes and nose. For the eyes, shade two small circles for the pupils, then use curved lines to draw incomplete circles around them. Unlike most anime eyes, Luffy's are circular instead of rectangular.

Draw a thick straight line above each eye to form the eyebrows. Between the brows, draw two short lines to indicate the furrowed expression. Use curved lines to enclose the triangular nose. Finally, draw a curved line below one eye and cross it with two short lines to indicate the scar.

2. Draw a long curved line to form the chin and cheeks. Draw another curved line around each end of the first line to enclose the ears.

Detail the insides of the ears with short curved lines. Then, draw the mouth using a curved trapezoid. Draw a curved horizontal line across the mouth to separate the top and bottom teeth.

4. Extend two short lines below the head to form the neck. Then, draw short lines at the bottom of each, diverging to begin the shoulders. From the ends of these, draw two curved lines that meet at a point below the neck.

This outlines the neck of the garment. Next, enclose a large oval around the top of the head. Connect the open ends of the hair with a curved line. This forms the brim of the hat. Enclose the hat's crow with a curved line, and draw another curved line across it to indicate the hatband.
