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.

Mermaid Dance Kalwa

Little sketch I did at lunchtime of Kalwa in her mermaid form from her crossover with Amber. Kinda imagined her rocking out to song “checkpoint” which was the opening theme song of the 1st season of Rent-a-Girlfriend, hence why she’s rocking her arms like the girls on the opening. Hope everyone likes it.

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!

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.

Kalwa and Senku

So this is a belated tribute/parody to the end of the Dr. Stone manga. After reading the final chapter and what Senku’s last creation would be, I just had to do a crossover with Kalwa. This image does kinda contain spoilers for the final Dr. Stone chapter, so if you haven’t read it I suggest you do so before proceeding.

I would’ve had this done sooner, but the manga ended on my moving day and then I had to set up the house which kept me busy for nearly two weeks.

Update

Hello fellow viewers long time no post. I wanted to post an let everyone know what’s going on right now. So on Sunday I officially moved into my first apartment and this whole week I’ve been so busy setting up and getting settled. I actually didn’t even get my computer set up until Wednesday so I couldn’t even post. I meant to post something before taking down the computer, but everything just moved so fast and I couldn’t do it.

So as a general note, all my free time this week has been spent setting up because I really can’t stand the sight of a messy house. But progress is going great and things are moving smoothly. As for what’s coming up, it’s mostly just drawings andI’ll really get rolling once my house is fully set up. Here’s a small little progress of what’s coming up right now. Thanks all for you’re patience.

ARTWORK ROUNDUP: JAPAN ARCH

Rounding up all the artwork done though out the course of the Japan arch. This of course does not include covers, just pinups of characters and some promo art. I’ll probably be doing a sequel post once the Japan arch is all wrapped up since the will be even more to add.

Just also realized that Suzume doesn’t have an art work here, guess I’ll have to make one of her. Also I would like to another piece of her with Izuha and Kalwa since the three of them are becoming a trio!
