I wanted to address the lack of activity. First of all, I have been very active on other social media, but haven’t so much on this or the Green Raptor site. Moving into a new place and working a day job has left me a bit exhausted and working on the other artwork has kinda left it hard to update.
So to give a few updates, chapter 26 IS being written right now. I’m not sure when exactly it will start. I’m working to have the script to my co-writer by next Sunday, but my co-writer is getting ready to move into his own place and I know from first hand experience that is really gonna slow down a lot cause it takes a while to get setup. So we will see how that will go, meanwhile I’ll be doing some more work on other Green Raptor projects which I’ll work to give updates on.
Meanwhile, here’s a little sketch I did a little while ago of Kalwa with wet hair. It just hit me a while ago I’ve never drawn her with wet hair, even during bath scenes she usually keeps her head above water and just gets shoulder deep. So here’s Kalwa with wet hair.
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.
We are back everyone, the move is over and (nearly) everything is set up. Which means it’s back to work for me. New artwork is in bound and the future is bright up ahead. So here’s one that’s been on my burner for a while. So this is a colored adaptation of chapter 11’s ending where Kalwa gets up close with some baby dinosaurs. I’ve wanted to do a color version of this scene for a while, and I wanted to make it like a story book, hence the white here.
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!
Hello everyone and happy last Monday of February, and today I’m NOT going to waste your time. Both pages for chapter 25 are complete and I don’t want to drag this out, so today I’m posting a DOUBLE page update and giving you the final two pages of Chapter 25 all at once today.
Now it’s time for some major updates. I’m MOVING, yes moving… to a new place. I’m finally getting my own apartment after all these years and this is a major change for me.
Without going into full details the years have really changed. When this comic had just started in 2014 I was just out of college, and working a part time job. Then I moved to a new state and got another part time job. Shortly after that, things went south. Getting steady pay was hard, we were still struggling to get this project up in the air, and then the pandemic. I got real depressed, and fell on real hard times, working on this comic series was the only thing I really enjoyed in life and I was struggling with the realities of being a struggling artist. Then last year I finally got a full time job, and over the course of time kinda recovered from the depressing time of my life. I’ve been working to improve my craft and have found pure joy in what what I do, better than I ever had before.
Family relations have gotten better and I’m SO MUCH happier than I was years ago, and now I’m finally getting out into the world ready to embark on my own journey and life.
So that being said, now I really WANT to do some serious work and more with Kalwa and the rest of Green Raptor Studios in my journey of life. We are going to publish the first volume, we are looking at summer, this time for real. I just need to update the fifth chapter, put some extras together and get some more goodies in there. All of that has been on my plans, but first I’ve had to pack up and get ready for the move. My primary concern was to finish chapter 25 before the move so I don’t leave anything hanging before I have to unload and move into the new house.
I’m also planning to get back on webtoons. The current Kalwa comic I don’t think will work well on Webtoons, but I have a gag comic called Kid Kalwa planned to go. More on that later. For the next few weeks, I’ll mostly be busy setting up the new house. However I will still be putting out artwork along with sketches and some behind the scenes work. I’ll do my best to keep everyone updated on when you can expect the next chapter and what’s coming out. So that’s what I just wanted to get out as well as thank everyone who follows this site and gives support. It all goes a long way and really shows me and my co-writer that our work is appreciated. My feeling is much like Kalwa’s smiling face down below.
So all that done, click the thumb down below and enjoy the remainder of chapter 25.
I finally decided to give Hideyoshi and Karou their colored character artwork so you can see what they look like in color. The two did appear in a group shot at the end of chapter 23, course they were in the background. Karou also finally gets a pattern added to her kimono, which I intended to have in her debut, but I kinda… FORGOT. Anyway, here’s their official character artwork in full color.
Today’s update is getting off a little late. I recently developed a sore throat that became a cough, so I’ve been trying to fight it off and wanted to turn in early last night. Usually the pages are already uploaded to the pages and by the time these posts are scheduled, they’ve already been up there for a few hours. But last night I just couldn’t do it and just wanted to go to bed to try and get better.
Anyway, here’s the latest page to chapter 25, the final two pages of this chapter will be up next week as we wrap up yet another chapter in this arch! As usual click the thumbnail below to see what we got.
Nearing the end of another chapter everyone. As I may have mentioned before, I’m getting ready to move to a new apartment, so I’m hurrying to get this chapter finished before the move. So it’s been a bit of an obsessive time, but we are now only three pages away from finishing. As usual, click the thumb below to read the latest page.
