Summer 2022

As is an annual tradition, we always upload a summer themed pinup here on the first day of summer. This year is a bit different, Kalwa’s not just showing off her swimsuit, but she’s accompanied by Zack and Reko. Here’s to another summer and may this year be filled with joy and adventure!

CHapter 26 BEGINS

It’s officially launch day for chapter 26!!! I’m sorry to everyone for the long wait, it’s been a bit difficult to get things going as both me and my co-writer have both moved into new homes and of course we live on opposite sides of the continent, so it’s been a bit hard to communicate amongst everything going on. This will be a pretty unique chapter as it actually does not focus so much on Kalwa herself other than the intro, rather it is more about her brother Zack, whom we have not seen in a while. The first two pages are up right now for reading, a third page will be added on Wednesday, click the thumbnail to see what we got for you all!!!

Chapter 26 Starts next week!

Thank you all for your patience. It’s been a real challenge getting this chapter rolling, I just moved into a new apartment and now Ryan’s moving into one as well, with both our lives changing it’s been so hard to get the ball rolling. But we are finally ready to launch chapter 26, the first few pages are nearly done and ready to go, I just need to do some toning. Uploads should start on Monday if all goes according to plan, thanks all for your patience and here’s some preview shots of what’s to come.

Chapter 26 Cover

Unveiling the cover to chapter 26, one that might be a little unique. I finally decided to go with the blocking of the logo. This is because this chapter actually won’t feature much of Kalwa herself save for the opening. Rather this chapter focuses more on the trio you see here, namely on Zack who is seen the back.

Chapter 26 will start very soon, Ryan is finishing up the script and soon it will be back to me pretty soon. I’ll give you all an update once the actual chapter starts. Meanwhile enjoy the cover!

Realistic Kalwa

I’ve been trying to draw Kalwa in a more realistic art style for quite a while now. Years ago I tried, but wasn’t happy with the results. Since starting a new job last year, I’ve spent my lunch break drawing other people’s characters and practicing their art styles in an attempt to enhance my own skills and develop other illustration skills. Finally months of practice have accumulated in finally creating this. Her hair is still a challenge to draw in this style, her three hedges are a trademark of hers and I’m not completely sure how to translate them to this style, the style here was actually inspired by a fanart crossover I received some time ago.

Suzume Character Art

Suzume finally gets her own character art, pretty much the last major character (outside of antagonists) from the Japanese arch. Similar to Izuha, Suzume was designed to be a minor background character just to fill the student scenes, her face was drawn on the pages of other background characters in the sketchbook. But I decided to give her a little bit of a larger role as one of Kalwa’s friends. Originally she was supposed to be short tempered, but I felt this was a little cliche and done before in the story, so she’s instead a little arrogant and passionate, but still loyal to her friends.

A scrapped joke in chapter 24 is during the hot spring scene, Suzume was supposed to be eating some fish on sticks and coined the term fish-sticks, which Izuha rejected as a name. But this got scrapped for timing.

GeTTING BACK ON

I wanted to address the lack of activity. First of all, I have been very active on other social media, but haven’t so much on this or the Green Raptor site. Moving into a new place and working a day job has left me a bit exhausted and working on the other artwork has kinda left it hard to update.

So to give a few updates, chapter 26 IS being written right now. I’m not sure when exactly it will start. I’m working to have the script to my co-writer by next Sunday, but my co-writer is getting ready to move into his own place and I know from first hand experience that is really gonna slow down a lot cause it takes a while to get setup. So we will see how that will go, meanwhile I’ll be doing some more work on other Green Raptor projects which I’ll work to give updates on.

Meanwhile, here’s a little sketch I did a little while ago of Kalwa with wet hair. It just hit me a while ago I’ve never drawn her with wet hair, even during bath scenes she usually keeps her head above water and just gets shoulder deep. So here’s Kalwa with wet hair.
