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.
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!!!
So a simple spoiler for the new bio picture and the fact that… he’s got a new hoodie. So yes, on previous covers that featured Zack, he was sporting a blue hoodie. However while I was coloring this and put down the old color scheme, I felt Zack looked pretty dull and monochrome, didn’t really stand out at all. So he got a hoodie makeover.
Storywise I feel this is kinda fitting for the character. Zack’s overall story arch is that he is a complete wimp, who has always needed his sister to bail him out, so he strives to better himself and become a stronger individual. So the red hoodie can symbolize his ascent to a stronger more independent character, or at the very least, show that’s he’s gone from a minor character in the background to stronger character in the future. Anyway, wanted to give an update on that.
Just a little update on the bio pictures for the site update, all of them now inked and ready for color. I’m trying to juggle a few projects at a time right now especially since I’ve hit a few snags on some other work, including the next cover image. Since I’m working a full time job, I try to take care of the heavy lifting on days off and do bits of the work on regular nights. I’ll be working on color for these and hopefully get moving on serious site updates later this week.
I’m preparing for a bit of a site overhaul, part of which involves updating the biography section of the website. Especially now that Zack has officially joined the main cast, we need a revamp. However, I’m also looking to get some new artwork up of the characters, more of a midshot kinda look. So here’s some sketch previews of whats coming up for our three protagonists.
I know it’s late in the day and everyone is probably watching two giant monsters duke it out. But just an update that we got a brand new page up for your viewing pleasure, moving close to the end of the line of chapter 23. As usual, click the link below and see the new page now.
Merry Christmas everyone from Kalwa and the rest of Green Raptor Studios, and I’d also like to give thanks to everyone who has followed, liked or even just tuned into this website. This was quite a year for everyone, myself included, but not in the way anyone expected. This terrible virus has completely engulfed the world, and many of use have been stuck inside this whole year. I myself intended to do more out in the world this year but all of that came crashing down as this virus came ravaging the land all over. However despite these hard times, I have noticed a spike for both this website and the Green Raptor Studios website, followers have gone up, views are becoming more frequent and I like to think that the content this website produces has played at least some kind of role in getting people through this tough time we are all going through. So from me to you, I thank everyone who has given their support to the work we produce here at Green Raptor Studios and hope you’ll all be with use for years to come. For there will be more content next year with more stories and artwork.
First and foremost will be the upcoming Feudal Japan story arch which I’ve been advertising on the sidelines a bit as of recently. The script to the first chapter has been completed and I’m just waiting for my co-writer to get it back to me. There’s also some cool artwork revolving around that as well as some more sketch work and behind the scenes work which I’ll be publishing when I get to the scanner. But more importantly, there will hopefully be more outings next year as we all pull ourselves through this tough time, stay strong and stay safe everyone!!!!
A bit of an old drawing of Kalwa with her short hair. This was done WAY back before she officially got it cut during the Whitechapel arch. I think I first drew this during chapter 16 or 17. This was before I started using some of the same techniques you see on some of the more modern illustrations. Truth be told, Kalwa’s short hair is symbolic, it’s supposed to show her at a weak point and that she’s still living with the scars she endured from Victor back in chapter 19. Hence the general theme with this drawing.
A REALLY old page here from chapter 8 featuring Kalwa’s fight with one her most “hated” rivals Rachel. Looking back on the whole experience, Rachel was really fun to draw in battle because her whip really made the fighting fun. The fun part about whips is their flow which is always a blast to draw, they just make hours of entertaining drawings and not to mention fun on with action figures if you have them. The only really issue I had with Rachel is that her hair was a little too complicated on a panel by panel basis. I do have some future plans for the character and hopefully by then I can better formulate a way to draw her hair by then.
