The Unceasing Path

無間道 - The Unceasing Path
《涅槃經》第十九卷
「八大地獄之最,稱為無間地獄,
為無間斷遭受大苦之意,故有此名。」

He who is sentenced to the Unceasing Hell may never pass on. 
It carries the meaning of incessant suffering. Thus the name.“

A One Piece print inspired by the 2002 Hong Kong crime-thriller Infernal Affairs and the composition of one of its promotional posters. Law and Rosinante’s story is probably my favorite part of the Dressrosa arc, and Rosinante is one of my favorite parental figures in the entire One Piece universe-even more so than some of the Straw Hats’ role models. Doflamingo was definitely one of the better villains but had so much untapped potential as a villain and character in general in my opinion, a lot of it stemming from his past with his little brother. 

If you haven’t seen the flick, I’d recommend it-but to spoil it anyway for the sake of explaining the creative influences behind this piece… It tells the story of a showdown between two double-agents: One an officer who infiltrates a gang and the other an officer who has always been secretly working for that same gang. More than a decade before their respective undercover operations come at odds, they were at the same police academy when the former was publicly expelled despite being an ace trainee (in actuality, this was when he was first sent to infiltrate the gang). In the end, the corrupt officer successfully comes out on top with his life; but being responsible for the death of the other whom he admired, wishes to have been able to trade places with him years ago when he was expelled from the academy. The original Chinese title translates to "The Unceasing Path,” referring to the lowest level of Hell in Buddhism, where one is sentenced to endure eternal suffering. 

The similarities between it and Doflamingo and Rosinante’s story were very striking to me. Rosinante’s crossing, the final gunpoint confrontation, Doflamingo’s tenuous connections to Buddhist themes with being called the “Heaven-sent Child of Destruction” and “Heavenly Yaksha.” He is perhaps the most evil villain introduced in One Piece so far, but his past and even some moments in the present story give him a lot of depth. Particularly, panels/shots that portray him as something of an alcoholic and him desolately staring at the gun that killed his father and brother really nail that image of a soul tortured by incessant suffering because of evil committed. 

*Trivia: Infernal Affairs was Hong Kong’s selection entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 76th Academy Awards but wasn’t nominated. The later 2006 remake, The Departed, by Martin Scorsese ended up winning 4 Oscars, including Best Picture. I’mma be honest though, personally consider The Departed the greater film even though it strips away a lot of the symbolism and imagery that inspired this print. So… watch them both and decide for yourself! Also, watch One Piece!

LUFFY x LAW vs DOFLAMINGO - Escape the Birdcage!
操り人形師との対決 死の鳥カゴを脱する!
Decisive Battle Against the Puppeteer! Escape the Birdcage of Death!

Dressrosa fan art I first made a sketch for more than 3 years ago, from when before the climatic fight had occurred and I was really hype for Luffy and Law to 2v1 Doflamingo (with Law delivering the final blow BECAUSE HE FUCKING DESERVES IT-stay tuned for my Rocinante fan art, just finished 99% of it up last night, on a WIP grind lately). Anywho, a simple concept of the hatless, ¼-naked L boys gearin' up to hand Doffy his first L. 
Background color scheme inspired by some shots from the anime. Kind of went overboard with the glowing aura of their powers.
