I got interested in how the art style in JOJO changes after seeing a leaked image of the part 6 anime and figured since DIO appears in most parts he'd make a good baseline! I tried to get multiple images for each part - though, obviously, for some parts that just wasn't possible - and keep it as spoiler-free as possible but of course, there'll be spoilers anyway since I'm not perfect. I'll talk a little about the changes I can see in each part, but I can't guarantee I'll make any sense.
This is going to be long, so it'll be under the break!
Part 1 - Phantom Blood
Looks to me that early on in part 1, the style is very "soft" and then sharpens as the part goes on.
Part 3 - Stardust Crusaders
The yassification of DIO... or was he already yassified? The world may never know.
Part 4 - Diamond is Unbreakable
He looks a lot like he did before the "high" part (makes sense, as this certainly was before that), but he's somewhat... smoother, like the rest of the characters. I remembered seeing him in part 4 but it was surprisingly hard to find this image.
Part 5 - Vento Aureo
He very much resembles Giorno now. Or, is it the other way around, technically? A lot softer in appearance than part 3, really looks more like his part 1 self.
Part 6 - Stone Ocean
If part 3 was yassification, this is CERTAINLY his yassified arc. My god. He is so soft-looking now, very much reminiscent of his part 1 self but also very much like Fugo for some reason? Might just be the fact that he's blonde and the style has changed.
And that's it! We're at the image limit now. Sad I didn't get to include some of my favorite honorable mentions, but those aren't technically in the manga, they're just random images I saw while looking for pictures of DIO. What version of him is your favorite? Mine's the later versions like (3 - 4 - 5 - 6), though part 1 holds a special place in my heart.
i wanted to draw razor but then it became leone and after drawing him i just went "what if razor and leone met"
#jjba#jojo #jojo's bizarre adventure #golden wind#vento aureo#genshin impact #razor genshin impact #razor#leone abbachio #i think the joke i was making in the last picture was that leone smells (probably) of wine #and jean is the dandelion knight... dandelion wine... ???? idk #i honestly forgot it but i think these are still cute #also where my icon is from! i worship that leone doodle so fucking much its exactly how I see him
