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.
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.
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.
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.
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 June 20th is the first official day of summer… which is why we are uploading this on the 21st…
Anyway to kick off this summer, here’s a tribute of all the Kalwa summer pieces. Not all of these were done as the annual summer picture but still it should lighten some spirits as the world gets back to normal this summer.
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.
The script for chapter 24 is finished, I just sent it to my co-writer yesterday for review, so I’m just waiting for it to come back before officially rolling. But in the meantime, I’m rolling out the annual summertime piece, I know we’re a little off from the first official day of summer, but I just wanted to draw it. So here’s this year’s illustration. I think I’ll try do a few more as the summer goes on, moving a bit away from the beach theme.
Just a little project I threw together over the last few days. This was kinda a piece to practice curves, and was inspired both by some pin ups from W.I.T.C.H. and an AMV on youtube I’ve been obsessed with all week tuned to the song Move like Jagers. Initially I was gonna gonna draw Kalwa in a bunny costume, but the original drawing was just not working out an I deleted it knowing I wouldn’t want to work on it anymore, thus we landed here.
