Chapter 25 Page 5

The holidays are upon us and if you’re all like me, your probably feeling a bit overwhelmed, I’m trying to do some special stuff for the family and I tend to be a little obsessive about getting things done. But don’t worry, I’m still committed to to getting regular pages out even during the tough times. So here we are with a new one for your viewing pleasure today.

The page updates will take a slight break due to a family commitment coming up like right now. But we will resume new pages by late next week. For right now, click the thumbnail below and see what we got for you today!!!

Chapter 25 has a new page up today for your viewing pleasure, and you might start seeing the sparks of bonding fly on this one. Not much else to say. As usual, click the thumbnail below to view the latest page to chapter 25!

Chapter 25 Page 3

Happy… uh… Black Friday. Do we consider this a holiday or a day of pure insanity, who knows. Well in case you had a bad day, just tired or not really doing much. We got a brand new page for chapter 25 out today, and it’s a night scene which are always fun to do with the playing of light and dramatic shading. Also I finally fixed the menu issue I was complaining about with the last update, it’s really just a matter of doing my old methods in a different way. Gonna take some time to get use to it, but I’ll manage. As usual, click the link below and see the latest page.

Chapter 25 Begins

It’s on everyone. My co-writer is going through some life stuff, and he still hasn’t gotten me the full script, but he’s at least provided me the first batch of pages so I can get started.

Full disclaimer, the navigation menu is a little different than previous chapters, but please don’t let that “scare you.” Something happened with WordPress and my reusable navigation blocks got messed up, resulting in all the menus getting changed and essentially causing mass chaos with page navigation. As such, I had to throw together a quickly made navigation real late a night while making the page. This new menu will (hopefully) be temporary and I’ll privately toy around trying to fix the problem, hopefully it’s a one night issue. This issue isn’t affecting previously uploaded chapters, but until it’s resolved, I won’t be putting a direct link from chapter 24 to 25, otherwise it might mess up everything. Like I said, hopefully it’s a one night issue.

Sorry for that rant, it’s just so frustrating when something like this happens, cause I wind up spending hours experimenting and publishing stuff just to learn how to navigate new issues. Regardless, you can see the new chapter by clicking the thumbnail below right now!

CHAPTER 25 starts TOMORROW!

Sorry for the quiet three days. Just a major update that 25 will start up here on the site TOMORROW! Yes, that’s right tomorrow. The finished cover will go up with two pages, the likes of which have been previewed in the sketch stage. So be on the look out for an official update as we kick off the next part of Japanese Arch!

Chapter 25 Cover Preview

Here first on the website, here’s a a look at the cover to chapter 25, colored and just about ready to go. Still have’t come up with a tag line for the cover yet, but it’ll be something along the lines of “inner strength.” I’m still waiting to get the script back, but I’m working on some other projects under the Green Raptor name and of course practicing in the sketchbook. More info coming as we get closer to the actual chapter 25.

Kalwa Halloween 2021

Happy Halloween everyone, hope you all enjoy the day and get plenty of sugar in your system (lol). Well here’s a special celebration drawing for the year. I’ve been posting some teasers of this in previous weeks but wanted to hold it back for this particular day.

So a little commentary is that I’m a MAJOR Naruto fan, or at least I am of the manga, I kinda like the anime but not by a whole lot. In fact I have three books fo artwork right next to my desk, and actually Kishimoto has actually been a great influence on my coloring style. Naruto himself is my favorite fictional character alongside Peter Parker, and he just had a birthday earlier this month. So this year, I’m dressing my own characters as a tribute and Halloween celebration, poor Reko had to get stuck dressed as Sasuke. Once again everyone, happy Halloween everyone and eat some Candy Corn for me.

Gender Swap

So this week, I started taking my sketchbook to work to draw at lunchtime, since I tend to finish my lunch rather fast and hate just sitting around for about forty minutes doing nothing, plus it’s gotten kinda hard to draw at home amongst everything else I do. So this week, the idea came to mind to draw the main cast if they were of the opposite gender, a gender swap if you will. The original sketch has been uploaded to the facebook page, so if you follow us there you might off seen it. Exclusively here on the site for now, is colored versions of the characters gender swapped, complete with their alternate names for their new genders. So if you like gender swaps, well here’s what our heroes would look like.
