Chapter 23 page 6

Hope everyone had a great holiday. I spent the day mostly working on yet another page for chapter 23, I’m really getting into this shading style for the trees and plants. I think this new shading style will help me do other comics with heavy shading styles in the future. This is overall really good practice. As usual, click the thumbnail to check out the latest update!!!

Kalwa Rising Sun

A little piece to help kick off the Japanese story arch!!! This will actually be used as the profile picture for the facebook page hence why it was important to have the Pygota with the rising sun, which was actually meant to be a symbol for the country she’s in given the famous rising sun flag.

Chapter 23 IS LIVE!!!

Happy New Years everyone, hope everyone is as happy as me to be free from the horrible year of 2020. It’s a brand new year, time for new beginnings and new goals and (hopefully) new ways of life. As I said earlier, this New Years Day is the big debut. Chapter 23 is now live at this very moment and thus begins the Feudal Japan story arch, which I promise will be quite the impactful story as it will be introducing a number of characters and plot lines that will be playing an overall major part in the overall Kalwa story. We currently got the first two pages up on the website right now. You can tune in by click one of the thumbnails below, the first one will take you to the front cover, or if you just want to dive straight in, the second will take you right to the first page. And remember to keep checking back for more updates all this month.

Chapter 23 update!

I got the script back from my co-writer on Christmas Day and we are officially set to start up chapter 23. I think I posted the cover a few months ago, but here’s a wip of the first page, minus the dialogue. I’m pleased to announce that chapter 23 will officially debut on New Year’s Day this year, with a two page debut. This first page has actually already been completed and the next page is already being started.

Without going into too many spoilers, this next chapter will start a new story arch set in Feudal Japan, with Kalwa and Zack both learning to get back on ones feet, namely on Kalwa’s end. Well be introducing some new characters who will actually be having quite the impact on the overall story, show off some fighting styles and hopefully give some readers a bit of insight on what life was like in the feudal days of Japan. We’re also going to be tying off a little plot thread that’s been wondering around for quite some time which is what you’re starting to see here. So join us on New Year’s Day as we proudly debut the next story arch in this saga!

Illustration of the Day!

This was the first of the Kalwa Anime crossover, featuring Kalwa in the Dr. Stone world. The idea just came to me while I was drawing Kohaku from the show (seen on the green raptor site) about how Kalwa would look if she ever crossed over her and thus began this crossover series that I’m currently working to finish. Also it was real fun drawing Kalwa in cave woman garbs.

A call back to chapter 4. This was really the first time staging a real action scene and need for coordinated movement. Rachel’s whip in particular was a unique experiment to play with drawing it in various positions and trying to draw in ways that could feel natural. I seriously don’t have that many comics where people use whips (or at least I didn’t back then) so a good portion of the portions came from either videos about whips or imagination.
