Sketchbook Work: Old Kalwa Sketches

A couple of early sketches of Kalwa from the early days when the comic was first being developed. The first one features an upcoming plot line in which Kalwa receives a fold out Naginata which Reko develops for her to use in combat. Probably the final design will look a little more technical with more details. The second drawing is an early concept of Kalwa’s swimsuit which was first seen in chapter 1. Initially I wanted her to have a two piece swimsuit, but my co-writer suggested making it a one piece as at the time she was meant to be more conserved and more private, so it was decided to go with the second design. I came up with the idea of adding the streak so the swimsuit would appear less bland.
