In the scene, we have Ace, Gold Roger, and Garp. Chinese artist Zhong Zhengxiang created the image, using tools like Maya, Mudbox, ZBrush, and Photoshop.

It’s an original tableau, and on ZBrush Central, the artist explains what the work means:

The orginal idea comes from Gol d. Roger was beheaded and his son Portgas·D· Ace repeated his father’s fate in a decades later. There’s a important person I have to mention is Navy General Monkey D. Garp. He is Gol·D ·Roger’s best friend and also rise Portgas·D· Ace up as his own family member.But they are also navy and pirates hostile relations of contradictions.

It shows between the friendship mingled with the hostile relations’s in the contradiction results.

I’m usually pretty good with watching any anime of any artistic style but One Piece is the ONE anime I absolutely cannot stand. People with hot-dog noses, here’s a skeleton with an afro and an open jaw seven feet long, this guy’s a walking egg, these people are human beings the height and width of department stores, and these women over here are toothpicks with tits. (Which...yeah, okay is pretty common in anime, but still!)

I’d rather watch Crayon Shin-Chan with it’s jagged broken jaws on terrible scribble people. I hear the story is pretty good, but it suffers from the cardinal sin of being one of those ‘Jump’ animes like Naruto and Bleach meaning you’ll never see the conclusion of the story for another 749 episodes.
