A lunchtime sketch made into a full on digital drawing. The Desert Vixens from the Western arc attempting to put on a swimsuit photoshoot, only everything is going completely wrong. Also in case this drawing doesn’t make it obvious, Cassidy is not at all bothered by concept of nudity. Little tide over as we wait for chapter 27, which I remind everyone starts on Monday.
Final CHapter 27 Preview and Status Update!
Yep, the title says it all this is FINAL chapter 27 preview and status update. I say this because Chapter 27 will officially start going up on this website NEXT WEEK on February 13th.
As I was putting together I realized that chapter 26 started going up in June of last year, and we finished it in September and then it was a bit of a LONG break. I got going on the annual Halloween draw off I do each year, then came some other stuff on other parts of the internet mainly involving stuff based off of Disney’s the Owl House. So this really has been possibly the longest gap between chapters.
But it’s not all been for naught really. For these past couple of months have been well spent. While working on all these drawings, my overall goal was to better train myself. Both by enhancing my art style and confidence, to both create a great product and produce faster, hence kinda the reason for the long absence. Starting with this chapter you’ll start to notice some new things compared to older chapters, mainly shading and screen tones. Also not to brag, but I’ve kinda made myself as an artist a little more well known as an artist, which also has helped out.
All that being said, hopefully this new chapter with dazzle your eyes and provide you with a great experience, and again thanks for reading. So enjoy this quick preview and tune in next Monday for the first official update.
Cover Preview to chapter 27
Quick preview shot to the cover of Chapter 27 with no logos or cropping, and yes we are turning up the “heat” on this next chapter, it’s gonna be pretty dark. But it will also be introducing a major character who will be playing a major role in the story going forward, so there will be a lot going on here and in the next chapter.
As mentioned this a preview, so I might still make a tweak here and there. Chapter 27 will start going up on the website this February.
More Chapter 27 Previews
I meant to post these last night, but I was tired from the day job and then tired out even more after working on them.
So here’s some more shots from the upcoming chapter 27. None of these pages are fully toned yet or have these special effects added. But you can see where we are heading with it.
I’m looking to start uploading this chapter by the end of this month/ start of next month. I’m hoping to have a total of 10 pages done for a buffer but don’t know if I’ll make it, but I’ll still have some pre-made pages ready for upload so we hopefully won’t fall behind so much.
Reko really doesn’t get very much artwork I must admit. So here’s some love to him in his natural environment.
Time to Duel
Was anyone expecting this? Well you get to see it now. I’ve been watching YU-GI-OH! on streaming, at first I was doing it just to laugh, as the first season was so wrecked by 4kids that it was actually funny to watch, course I’d do research to find out what the story was actually like to see past the 4kids changes. However ContTv started airing archs like the KC Grand Championship and Pharaoh’s Memories which I never saw as a kid, so I’m kinda watching it seriously to see what I missed as a kid. Later episodes are better, but still somewhat muddy thanks to 4kids.
Anyway, got the inspiration to draw Kalwa with a Duel Disk, also this is a new outfit I’m planing to have her wear starting soon, except she’ll have longer leggings.
Brining in 2023
Happy new year to everyone, and to celebrate we got our stars all sharing a glass along with Amber and Swishy, Green Raptor Studio’s other comic stars (see their story on the Green Raptor Website). Here’s to a new year and see what we got in store next year!
Chapter 27 Update
So, it’s time to give an update about the progress of chapter 27. The script has been completed and sent over to my editor. We’re in the very early stages of the chapter, starting with this preview of the cover. Unlike before we won’t be uploading the pages as we finish them, instead I’ll be drawing working on the pages all at once, first by thumbing the full chapter and then proceed to finish the pages. Once ten pages are done they will start going up.
Needless to say chapter 27 won’t be up in December, probably around January. In addition to chapter 27, we’ll also be getting ready to release the first Kalwa publish book containing the first five chapters. It’ll debut on digital first and then make it’s way to print shortly after.
That’s all for now, more updates to come.
KALWA AND AMBER SHAKE IT UP
I’m back from a trip everyone. I was actually away for five days to attend my brother’s wedding in VA, in fact everything you saw on the 9th was actually scheduled. Once I got home I started working on a bunch of stuff that I put off in an attempt to fill the void in my absence. A part of that is working on new artwork for getting the Kalwa comic on other sites such as webtoons (which it’s already on), Tapas and Webcomics. Plus I’ve been focused on other ventures beyond just Kalwa such as establishing myself and Green Raptor Studios as an artist. So forgive the silence, there is still more to do but I’ll try to keep up posts here as best I can.
Meanwhile, here’s a piece to satisfy. Kalwa’s once again under the sea with Amber, Green Raptor’s OTHER comic star. She’s got her own one shot comic over on the Green Raptor website, looking to do more with her when I get around to it. I’ve kinda been obsessed with Taylor Swift’s song “Shake it off” and that’s kinda where this image came from! Everyone enjoy the mermaids shaking things up!!!!
