This is a parody of the iconic scene where the Straw Hats are standing on the battlements defying the world government as they are rescuing Robin. It ts one of my favorite scenes. It was an insanely brave act and immensely cool. To have the fake Straw Hats there instead to me seemed really funny because it would be so absurd.
I had changed Chopper's position in the image so that the other characters in the image would be larger onscreen in the composition. I used a screengrab of the scene as reference for the drawing. I also roughly traced the battlements in line art so I would match the perspective of the original image. Unfortunately the sizes of the fake Straw Hats may be off. I was busy trying to get their outfits right without thinking too hard about accurately getting their relative sizes right too.
