This is my personal opinion but I think Mashima copies the shit out of Oda style, I am sure many will claim they cant see it but that shit is clear as day I have recently tried to get into Fairy Tail but I cant help but feel I am reading One Piece take 2 again from the way Natsu and Lucy meet is an excat rip of to the original way Luffy met Nami. Maybe its just the Oda fanboy in me but to me there is the master in Oda and then there is the wannabe in Mashima.
Mashima does certainly draw sexy women, but overall I think I prefer Oda's drawings and designs. It might just be my bias and love of One Piece that won't allow me to see Mashima's as better, but a lot of Mashima's designs seem bland and uninteresting. Like someone pointed out, Oda is better with backgrounds.
Oda definitely has Mashima completely beat on story, character development, fights, and awesomeness. They're not even comparable in these areas.
in term of wardrobe i think if comparing "fashion" style it goes to mashima, but originality,awesomeness,epicness and such style it goes to Oda.i mean Oda puts combination that fits excelently and badass (well mostly weird :D)
well of course Mashima wins in term of drawing chicks, but he can only draw oh so perfect boys hw can't drew macho or badass man at all
just look at elfman and the new guy that is part of the 10 holy mage...
i don't know it just seems realy bland.
then the backgrounds... ODA definitely wins :D
for proof?? compare the epicness in Supernova to the FT oracion seis
though mashima's 4 demon realm god design in rave is quite good
Oda has more stuff going on in each panel including more detail background. Mashima has a more cleaner look to it. Oda does draw hawt woman is that he doesn't do much fanservice like Mashima does though the anime version of One Piece does add fanservice.
Also there's lots of doujins based on One Piece girls are out their.
The world is filled with people who were given great natural gifts, sometimes conspicuosly flashy gifts, yet never produce anything. And when that happens, the world soon ceases to care whether they are talented.
