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!

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween everyone, another year has come for treats, scares and fun. So as many of you should know, over here at Green Raptor Studios we LOVE Halloween. Every year we sharpen our pencils (digital pad really) and draw as many monster, horror and other fun stuff as we can. And of course there is always the finale, which in recent years is Kalwa related.

This year we are bringing in a number of faces that we have met recently, mainly Kalwa’s dojo friends Izuha and Suzume. Kalwa’s already appeared in this outfit before as the Witch of Time, but now you get to see her friends join her for the witching hour, and of course the boys get to play the minions. HAPPY HALLOWEEN TO ALL, and join us next year for more Halloween fun.

Chapter 26 Cover

Unveiling the cover to chapter 26, one that might be a little unique. I finally decided to go with the blocking of the logo. This is because this chapter actually won’t feature much of Kalwa herself save for the opening. Rather this chapter focuses more on the trio you see here, namely on Zack who is seen the back.

Chapter 26 will start very soon, Ryan is finishing up the script and soon it will be back to me pretty soon. I’ll give you all an update once the actual chapter starts. Meanwhile enjoy the cover!

Chapter 25 COMPLETE AND UPDATES!

Hello everyone and happy last Monday of February, and today I’m NOT going to waste your time. Both pages for chapter 25 are complete and I don’t want to drag this out, so today I’m posting a DOUBLE page update and giving you the final two pages of Chapter 25 all at once today.

Now it’s time for some major updates. I’m MOVING, yes moving… to a new place. I’m finally getting my own apartment after all these years and this is a major change for me.

Without going into full details the years have really changed. When this comic had just started in 2014 I was just out of college, and working a part time job. Then I moved to a new state and got another part time job. Shortly after that, things went south. Getting steady pay was hard, we were still struggling to get this project up in the air, and then the pandemic. I got real depressed, and fell on real hard times, working on this comic series was the only thing I really enjoyed in life and I was struggling with the realities of being a struggling artist. Then last year I finally got a full time job, and over the course of time kinda recovered from the depressing time of my life. I’ve been working to improve my craft and have found pure joy in what what I do, better than I ever had before.

Family relations have gotten better and I’m SO MUCH happier than I was years ago, and now I’m finally getting out into the world ready to embark on my own journey and life.

So that being said, now I really WANT to do some serious work and more with Kalwa and the rest of Green Raptor Studios in my journey of life. We are going to publish the first volume, we are looking at summer, this time for real. I just need to update the fifth chapter, put some extras together and get some more goodies in there. All of that has been on my plans, but first I’ve had to pack up and get ready for the move. My primary concern was to finish chapter 25 before the move so I don’t leave anything hanging before I have to unload and move into the new house.

I’m also planning to get back on webtoons. The current Kalwa comic I don’t think will work well on Webtoons, but I have a gag comic called Kid Kalwa planned to go. More on that later. For the next few weeks, I’ll mostly be busy setting up the new house. However I will still be putting out artwork along with sketches and some behind the scenes work. I’ll do my best to keep everyone updated on when you can expect the next chapter and what’s coming out. So that’s what I just wanted to get out as well as thank everyone who follows this site and gives support. It all goes a long way and really shows me and my co-writer that our work is appreciated. My feeling is much like Kalwa’s smiling face down below.

So all that done, click the thumb down below and enjoy the remainder of chapter 25.

Fan art

I’m here today to share some fan art I’ve received involving Kalwa. I’m always so flattered when I see someone drawing my characters as it shows there are people out there who really appreciate all the hard work me and my co-writer do each and every chapter.

Just yesterday I received a fan art via facebook from Cat Country Studios, which involved Kalwa crossed over with his own character Riley. The instant sight sent my hear a flutter, Cat Country Studio has been a major supporter this year on facebook and I myself enjoy their artwork. So I’m sharing the art right here on my site to help give them some better exposure. I’ve also got a fan art down below I received I think two years ago from another friend on facebook. It was a more personal account, so I don’t want to just blab it, but I still really love it a lot.
