As previously reported, a video of the creation of a figure of Smoker, one of the most popular characters in the Navy, from the nationally popular manga and anime “ONE PIECE,” written by Eiichiro Oda, has been uploaded on YouTube. This time, the video of the painting version was released.
The video was uploaded by “Sutei Homu 〈巣亭包夢〉,” a channel that opened on June 8, 2021. In the summary column, he wrote, “In this channel, I will post a record of how much a clay beginner improves and how much he grows. I make my favorite characters for myself!” It is stated that he is a beginner who started making figures on May 21, 2021, and his motive is also spelled out: “I start thinking that it would be nice to be able to make the figures I want by myself.
