For all you Kalwa fans out there, the next chapter has been returned to me and it’s already in production! This next chapter will be the first in a six part story arch which will feature Kalwa and Zack journeying to Feudal Japan where they will be learning a few things and meeting some characters who will be having an overall impact on the overall story for chapters to come.
Anyway, this next chapter will be debuting on New Years Day with a two page update on our sister site at https://kalwawebcomic.com/. In the meantime here’s a little WIP of the first page, and see you all then on New Years Day!
Merry Christmas everyone from Green Raptor Studios, and I’d also like to give thanks to everyone who has followed, liked or even just tuned into this website. This was quite a year for everyone, myself included, but not in the way anyone expected. This terrible virus has completely engulfed the world, and many of use have been stuck inside this whole year. I myself intended to do more out in the world this year but all of that came crashing down as this virus came ravaging the land all over. However despite these hard times, I have noticed a spike for both this website and the Kalwa website, followers have gone up, views are becoming more frequent and I like to think that the content this website produces has played at least some kind of role in getting people through this tough time we are all going through. So from me to you, I thank everyone who has given their support to the work we produce here at Green Raptor Studios and hope you’ll all be with use for years to come. For there will be more content next year with more stories, artwork and hopefully more outings as we pull ourselves through this tough time, stay strong and stay safe everyone!!!!
A little pre-Christmas illustration featuring Sasha, a simple character I came up with years ago just drawing a couple of years ago while simply playing around with female designs in my sketchbook. She’s already made one appearance this year during the summer and now she’s back to show off the joy of a snow day, just simply enjoying a hot a beverage in the park. Remember everyone to stay warm and safe this Christmas and you’ll be as happy as she is now.
Happy day before Christmas Eve everyone, hope you’re all doing and well and patiently waiting for your presents. To help you wait, there’s a new page up for Amber today, bringing us one page closer to then end. As usual, click the thumbnail down below to read what’s in store for today!!!!
I’ve been trying to branch out a little bit and do more illustrations of other characters from the Kalwa series other than just Kalwa herself. I first started with Toshiro and Miki a few weeks ago. So right now I’m bringing you Victor, the “original” Jack the Ripper killer who first encountered Kalwa in chapter 18 before mentally scarring her in the next chapter. I actually really felt like doing this drawing now at a time when the weather was cold, as the original Whitechappel murders happened around winter time. Even though the final one was in early November, Whitechappel was on edge throughout the Christmas season, so I was hoping to replicate a little of that feeling this season with this image right here. I had actually been watching the 1984 version of a Christmas Carol and took a lot of inspiration from the atmosphere created by the Ghost of Christmas Future, it’s how I decided to give a chilling atmosphere to this piece.

So for those who are new I’ve got a small group of people over on Deviant Art that really love my fanart drawings of Sunset Shimmer from Equestria Girls. I’m not really objecting to it because I can’t help myself from drawing her a lot, maybe it’s the little figurine on my desk. Somehow the character just spurts up so much inspiration. Well this year I finally decided to make a Christmas picture for her after seeing so many for the past several years. Originally I was going to make dead on sexy, but thought that would confiscate her character. So I decided to just appeal to her slightly edgy side and give her a Santa biker outfit, note the gloves. Hopefully this picture brightens up some bronies holiday spirit.
This was the result of poll on Deviant Art. I had asked my watchers to vote on which Anime character they wanted to see in a swimsuit and Maka Albarn from Soul Eater was the winner. Although I do like the character I must stop putting her on poll lists because she always wins. This picture was however a blast to draw as it was real play on perspective and camera angles. Maka is still one of my favorite Anime characters and I do love drawing her with a passion.
I probably posted this much earlier but I’ll repost it here. So here’s the original sketch work of Swishy, Amber’s faitful assistant in organizing her heists. For those who are not aware, Swishy is a Barrel Eyed fish, which was a type of fish that I myself was completely unaware of prior to writing Amber. In truth I wanted Swishy to be a unique type of fish, so I sought out to find the weirdest and most obscure type of fish I could find. In reality Barrel Eyed fish actually have a thin veil over their face which covers their eyes. However this kinda of design would have made facial expression of Swishy very limited, so I sought to give him eyes anyway, though I still wanted them to be a little weird. However many of the early designs came out looking… kinda creepy. Thus Swishy was given a more Disney like look and actually became a little more modeled after a Dolphin than a Barrel Eye. He still does have the glowing face which Barrel Eyes do posses and I also designed so his eyes close diagonally. So that’s a little fact on Swishy.
So I showed off her brother a few days ago, now it’s time to show off another character who will be making her debut in the next Kalwa arch. This is Miki Sato, a sweet yet shy member of the Sato clan who often times tends to get targeted by father’s enemies in an attempt to get him. Luckily she is often protected by her big brother Toshiro and later forms somewhat of bond with Kalwa’s brother Zack whom she will be playing a major part in his future character arch. I actually had an image of her from the original Kalwa story that I had been writing in high school, but hadn’t done any sketches of her since. So this was kinda an on the whim drawing with prior knowledge of her and a few adjustments all thrown into one. Ironically she looks almost completely different than the original drawing I did of her in high school where she looked a little more tomboyish and less cute than what I think came out.
More of Kalwa can be read on it’s OWN WEBSITE, chapter 23 and the Japan arch will be debuting later 2020/early 2021.
