Happy Wednesday everyone, hope you’re all staying nice and safe. As you keep yourself safe, we got a brand new page for you today as we update with the THIRD FROM LAST page of this chapter. This page, we introduce a rather dark and formidable opponent who will be playing a large role throughout the rest of this arch. As usual, click the thumbnail below and check out what we got in store today.
It’s another character art today, this is time it’s Kaliesha who originally debuted in chapter 12, introduced as the secret captain of the pirate hunters. She’s also a single mother who’s is highly protective of her children Amoy and Akoni. Kaliesha herself was actually based off an old boss I had who was a hardworker with a kid of her own. I’d watch her attend to both her job and her kid, and I had such great respect for her. When we were writing the pirate story arch, Kaliesha was the first character I came up with, though it was my co-writer who named her and all of her crewmates.
The flames were a last minute choice, I kinda developed them after I was playing around with the shadow and started getting a red hue. I thought the intense flames would help to emphasize her protective mother side and just how strong a character she is when it comes to protecting her kids.
