Just a fun little project to draw this cute little kid who I can’t help but smile and laugh at. Couldn’t really lock down a definitive look on her given hat she literally has a new outfit every episode, so I just went with the one that got an action figure.
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.
And to see this creepy guy in action, check out Kalwa Chapter 19 at THIS LINK
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.
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.
I’ve been trying to get my old characters back out there with new drawings and I’ve realized that I haven’t drawn these three in quite some time. So they are back now enjoying some quiet mediation time under the waterfalls.
It’s been a long time since I did a color image of Amber, mostly all the work with her has been in the comic pages. I admit that I kinda lost a bit of an urge to draw her because of all the work on the comic and I’m gonna admit that I made a mistake with the way I structured her story.
While I’m very happy by the positive response of Amber operating from a wheelchair, I feel I honestly have too many scenes in the comic of her confined to a wheelchair. The real fun of drawing a mermaid is having them swim in the ocean and playing with the flow of the body and motion. Simply drawing a mermaid being confined to a wheelchair as well as having to draw all the details of the wheelchair is not all the fun, especially when it goes on for twenty plus pages. So this drawing here is kinda the result of pent up aggression of not being able to draw a mermaid being free in the ocean for so long, and it really feels great to break free.
