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.

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 Rough Up PREVIEW

Time now for more of an update on chapter 27, and I hope you enjoy it. So I’ve spent the last few days heavily roughing up chapter 27, the goal of which was to have it done before Christmas so I could enjoy the Holiday. As I’ve mentioned before this is kinda a new technique which will hopefully lead to a much better project.

For past chapters, the work process has been simple, write the script and go through page by page and make the finished pages as I go through. The problem is all the work that goes into making a page is truly draining. As it requires laying out panels, coming up with the pictures and setting up text to make it all flow. This is all BEOFRE you get to doing the details and finalizing the art. Major issues with this technique is that everything is done at once which leaves both tired and more incapable of double checking my work to insure it’s working as sequential storytelling, as well as keeping continuity between pages such as minor details and location.

By roughing the whole chapter up like this, about half the work has already been done and now I can focus my efforts on making quality art as well as being able to divide my time between Kalwa and other projects (like an new Amber the Mermaid story). So hopefully this post was informal to all the artists, aspiring mangaka or even just entertaining for the general audience. Also I’m still waiting to get the script back from my editor, so what you see here might not be the final product, most definitely we might have new dialogue.

Hope everyone has a happy and enjoyable holidays and be sure to tune it this years Kalwa Christmas pinup!

Ninja Kalwa

Back from a bit of a break. I’ve been working on some other artwork on the Green Raptor website and other online accounts, plus preparing for a trip. So I’ve been a tad distracted since the end of Halloween. But here’s a new art piece for the time being, This ninja Kalwa drawing was actually started last month, but I didn’t want to disrupt the Halloween sprit, so I put it off till I finished the Halloween draw off over on the Green Raptor site. Hope you all enjoy.

Halloween Reflection

In case nobody has noticed, it’s October and here at Green Raptor Studios we love Halloween. And every year I try to embrace that Halloween fun with both Kalwa and other Green Raptor characters and drawings. Yes we got some Halloween fun this year for Kalwa, but for right now, here’s a little reflection of past year fun… and I also just noticed that Kalwa really likes to dress as witches!

Kalwa Chapter 26 COMPLETE!!!

And we’ve come to the end once again everyone, yet another milestone and another chapter has concluded today. Today we’re giving you a DOUBLE page upload today to wrap up chapter 26. This chapter was a bit of a long one for me cause there was LOT going on behind the scenes, I attended a con, my mother’s birthday was going on with a special art I did for her, and of course a shift in schedule at the day job. But we DID it and we completed another chapter to this story. We will take a small break from chapters, but you can look forward to some HALLOWEEN fun coming from Kalwa and Green Raptor Studios this coming month. Stick around for that, but for now, click the thumbnail below to read the last two pages of the chapter, or go back to the beginning and read it as a whole.
