Annoucements

So I haven’t do much posting since Halloween, and that’s because I’ve been preparing for a short trip and I’ve had to prepare other work in advance since I won’t be near my computer to finish them up. As such, everything has just been backed up and bottlenecked. But I wanted to catch everyone up on what progress we got going.

So I recently decided to it was finally time to get serious about publishing books. It’s long been a serious project, but never really got off the ground. The first book I’m looking to make will contain the first five chapters of the story, we are looking to release it digitally on sites like Amazon first and then move into physical copies. The published version will contain some art and dialogue updates that will make them different from what is published on the site here. The first four chapters have all been edited, but the fifth chapter still needs it’s dialogue changed. We are looking at a February release date, so I will get a bit more serious one working on that once I get back from my trip. More to come on that as we get closer.

In addition, I’ve started posting Kalwa back onto webtoons in new episode formats. I had started uploading to Webtoons a few years ago, but gave up on it. Back then we didn’t have as many chapters as we do now, and in order to constantly update and make the comic active, I was only uploading a few pages per episode which I think really padded it out beyond audience attention. Now chapters are uploaded to the site in two parters and on the same day. I’m also looking to upload to Webcomics and Tapas, again probably after I get back from the trip.

Well continuing on from the last paragraph, I was preparing this weeks double chapter update and discovered that chapter 6 and 7 were each missing a page that I failed to upload to this website. This issue has now been resolved and chapters 6 and 7 now have their missing pages on this website.

Finally news on chapter 27, I started writing it but only got five pages done at this point. Again most of it is due to work to prep for the trip and the fact that my youtube music is tainted right now by annoying ads, but mostly the former. We are going to be doing this chapter a little differently than before. The process up to this point is I write the script, step away fro a week, go back and re-edit then hand it over to Ryan to edit. He gets me the re-edited script and I start working on a page by page basis.

This time I’ll be taking a different approach, I’ll be roughing the entire chapter at once after my original chapter and then start penciling pages as I get his edits. Also I won’t start uploading until I’ve completed ten pages at least. This way, I can hopefully provide a better product by being able to walk away and take a second look at the work rather than having to crank it out in the moment. This will also allow the freedom to work on other projects and illustrations and have a “social life” by creating a buffer to allow for more pages to come out in the future. This might take a little longer to get it out, but it will make things better in the long run. Meanwhile I’ll still be posting artwork, behind the scenes work and more as we are getting there. This site is meant for more than just promoting the comic after all.

So I wanted to bring this up right now and let everyone know what’s going on. I appreciate everyone who follows this website and keeps up with the work that goes on here, it really makes it all worth while. And I’ll do what I can to keep everyone in the loop of what’s going on!

Update for the Week

Just posting an update on what’s been going on. There won’t be a page update this week unfortunately. I’ve got pages in the work as seen from previews below, but I’ve been attending to other things around the house that I’ve been putting off such as reorganizing items and throwing things out. This on top of work has left me feeling drained and tired and has made it hard to sit down and draw. Hopefully I’ll feel better next week and get more out. Meanwhile as I mentioned, here’s a preview of whats coming.

Chapter 26 Starts next week!

Thank you all for your patience. It’s been a real challenge getting this chapter rolling, I just moved into a new apartment and now Ryan’s moving into one as well, with both our lives changing it’s been so hard to get the ball rolling. But we are finally ready to launch chapter 26, the first few pages are nearly done and ready to go, I just need to do some toning. Uploads should start on Monday if all goes according to plan, thanks all for your patience and here’s some preview shots of what’s to come.

GeTTING BACK ON

I wanted to address the lack of activity. First of all, I have been very active on other social media, but haven’t so much on this or the Green Raptor site. Moving into a new place and working a day job has left me a bit exhausted and working on the other artwork has kinda left it hard to update.

So to give a few updates, chapter 26 IS being written right now. I’m not sure when exactly it will start. I’m working to have the script to my co-writer by next Sunday, but my co-writer is getting ready to move into his own place and I know from first hand experience that is really gonna slow down a lot cause it takes a while to get setup. So we will see how that will go, meanwhile I’ll be doing some more work on other Green Raptor projects which I’ll work to give updates on.

Meanwhile, here’s a little sketch I did a little while ago of Kalwa with wet hair. It just hit me a while ago I’ve never drawn her with wet hair, even during bath scenes she usually keeps her head above water and just gets shoulder deep. So here’s Kalwa with wet hair.

Update

Hello fellow viewers long time no post. I wanted to post an let everyone know what’s going on right now. So on Sunday I officially moved into my first apartment and this whole week I’ve been so busy setting up and getting settled. I actually didn’t even get my computer set up until Wednesday so I couldn’t even post. I meant to post something before taking down the computer, but everything just moved so fast and I couldn’t do it.

So as a general note, all my free time this week has been spent setting up because I really can’t stand the sight of a messy house. But progress is going great and things are moving smoothly. As for what’s coming up, it’s mostly just drawings andI’ll really get rolling once my house is fully set up. Here’s a small little progress of what’s coming up right now. Thanks all for you’re patience.
