It’s time for another update for the chapter 27, and as I mentioned, this will be the LAST update for two weeks. Next week we will be taking a break from updates next week on account of me moving and needing to produce more pages for a cache. Otherwise we could wind up in a tough spot when it comes to future uploads. So check out what we got and if you’re not caught up on this chapter (or others) this break is a great time to catch up.

Final CHapter 27 Preview and Status Update!
Yep, the title says it all this is FINAL chapter 27 preview and status update. I say this because Chapter 27 will officially start going up on this website NEXT WEEK on February 13th.
As I was putting together I realized that chapter 26 started going up in June of last year, and we finished it in September and then it was a bit of a LONG break. I got going on the annual Halloween draw off I do each year, then came some other stuff on other parts of the internet mainly involving stuff based off of Disney’s the Owl House. So this really has been possibly the longest gap between chapters.
But it’s not all been for naught really. For these past couple of months have been well spent. While working on all these drawings, my overall goal was to better train myself. Both by enhancing my art style and confidence, to both create a great product and produce faster, hence kinda the reason for the long absence. Starting with this chapter you’ll start to notice some new things compared to older chapters, mainly shading and screen tones. Also not to brag, but I’ve kinda made myself as an artist a little more well known as an artist, which also has helped out.
All that being said, hopefully this new chapter with dazzle your eyes and provide you with a great experience, and again thanks for reading. So enjoy this quick preview and tune in next Monday for the first official update.
Reko really doesn’t get very much artwork I must admit. So here’s some love to him in his natural environment.
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 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.
