Finished character sketch of Toshiro Sato, a major character that will debuting in the upcoming Feudal Japan arch. Not only will he be a major character in the next arch, he is actually set to become a major character in the remainder of overall Kalwa story. Toshiro is the son of Hideyoshi Sato, a powerful swordsman who fled his own village during the Japanese Fedudal Era. Hideyoshi started his own village where he trains runways in the art of weapons, in attempt to give them the means to survive in the dangerous world outside of noble rule. Toshiro serves not only as his sone, but assistant in training these runways and is a powerful warrior when it comes to swords. He also has a cute little sister named Miki who will also be getting colored portrait as well.
Kalwa if she appeared in Stoneworld from Dr. Stone. For those who saw my 1st Studio Tour post, you probably read that Dr. Stone has rocketed it’s way to my favorite anime, just short of Digimon which really only sits at the top due to nostalgia (so objectively Dr. Stone is really number 1). And after seeing a number of costumes from the show (mainly Kohaku) I really wanted to draw Kalwa in one of the outfits. Also this was the first of a series in which Kalwa would appear in various outfits as though she lived in that anime world.
An early page from chapter 10 which illustrates a bit of tensions between Kalwa and her mother. I should confess that shortly after I moved to my current house shortly around the time this chapter began, though that really has nothing to do with the tension between Kalwa and her mother. Actually the conflict was a little inspired by a few tensions my mother had with her mom. Don’t know if it was as hostel as seen in the comic, but that was a source. This also was kinda a plot I opened up without a real idea of where it was headed, but I can promise that you will see this going in a direction in chapter 23!

Just a little project I decided to do of Kalwa gaming it on the new Playstation 5 which I’m pretty sure many people will be doing when the system officially launches everywhere on Thursday. In case it’s not obvious, I think she likes it.
A pretty little project that will hopefully help viewers get their mind off of an election anxiety they may have. I actually came up with the idea to draw this sometime ago, after I stumbled across the 28th ending of Gintama which featured the cast in the wedding outfits. I thought it would be pretty fun to draw Kalwa in such outfit. Plus it’s a happy and pretty sight to help in these rough times. Anyway, I hope everyone enjoys this.
