Chapter 24 Page 6

Back again everyone, with the possibly the most difficult page thus far! Seriously, I probably spent three days just drawing this page. Anyway, as usual, click the thumb below and see what we got.

Izuha

Taking a slight break from comic pages to do a character draw up. So this is a new character that will soon be debuting in chapter 24, for that matter she can be seen on the cover. This is Izuha, who was a character intially designed to be just a minor character as one of Hideyoshi’s many pupils. However while writing the script, I wound up developing her into a more fleshed out character as a way for Kalwa to learn about the students and the history of where she’s staying. Anyway, watch for her in the coming pages coming up.

Chapter 24 Page 4

Sorry everyone for being so late, just had to fine tune everything. Anyway, we are on for page 4 of chapter 24. At this point I’m kinda just scribbling weapons and was even putting a trident in the background not knowing if it would fit, but someone on facebook pointed out the weapon in the background so I appreciate it. As usual, click the thumbnail below and see what we got.

Chapter 24 Page 3

Only three days after it debuted and we got a new page for chapter 24 up and ready for you all. This page is a bit of a call back to chapter 1 in which Kalwa said she wasn’t a fan of onions. Intially it was meant to just be a simple passing note, but this time we play it up. As usual, click the thumbnail below to see the latest page.

WIP chapter 24

It’s been a bit of a long route here everyone, the script was late getting to me and my dog got sick which really weighed me down and I didn’t feel like working. But Chapter 24 is underway and I’m shooting for a weekend launch. As proof, here’s some screen shots showing where things lay at the moment. Look for chapter 24 this weekend!!!

Reizo Sketches

So now comes Reizo, the latest villain to debut in Kalwa, even though he was only seen briefly at the end of the last chapter. Reizo was actually a character who I had been planning for as he was a character from my original version of Kalwa drawn back in high school. However the character here is racially different from the version I had drawn then, most notably the hair. I really wanted Reizo to appear as an overly serious and downright scary person, so I put a lot of emphasis on his eyes, styling them to look slim and snake like. As with other members of his group, he is covered in rags and battle scars which he wears as a symbol of pride. The little backstory about his facial scar which was mentioned at the beginning of chapter 24 was something I came up with on the spot while writing the script as a way to add more character development.

Chapter 24 cover

So I got a little caught up working on this tonight, I’m still kinda debating if the orange overtone is working for this piece. So there might be a slight change depending on how I feel tomorrow. We’ll just see, in the meantime here’s the hard time in progress work on chapter 24’s cover.

Chapter 23 COMPLETE!!!!

We are officially there everyone, we are done now with chapter 23 of Kalwa and the Japanese arch is now in full swing. It’s time now for a brief break as the next chapter gets prepped. But in the meantime, get ready for some behind the scenes work in the coming days. As usual, click the thumbnail below and see the end of this chapter, and go one step forward because we have a special finale pinup awaiting.

Chapter 23 Page 25

Once again I apologize for the late update. As I previously said, I got done late last night and didn’t get a chance to tone. I got up early to do it this morning but didn’t want to rush it without review. So I give you all the late page update of page 25. Only one more page to do before this chapter is complete. As usual, click the thumbnail to read the latest page.
