Happy Valentine’s Day everybody. I know I didn’t do a Sunday Sketch yesterday, I got busy wrapping up drawings, packing my stuff up for a move, and I figured it being the Superbowl… Well this should make up for it, with this special Valentine’s picture. Kalwa’s asking you out on a date, would you accept her offer? What kind of date would you take her on? Any ideas feel free to comment down below and share it with all. Once again, happy Valentine’s Day!!!
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.
