First time in a long time since I’ve drawn a Star Wars character. I’ve been wanting to draw dear old Din Djarin aka the Mandalorian for a long time as I hold the show very close to my heart since it was the really the only thing that got me out of bed in 2020. Plus since there’s a new season coming up soon I figured now would be the time. These types of characters are really challenging for me with armor pads on the body. It requires fitting the anatomy with the metal parts which can really get hard. Remember, season 3 is in next month.
Anime art: Naruto Uzumaki and makoto Shishio
There’s a LOT of artwork I’ve haven’t uploaded so I’m trying to catch up. Today I got a double anime upload with my favorite anime hero Naruto Uzumaki and my favorite anime villain Makoto Shishio (from Ruroni Kenshin). Enjoy!
Here’s to another year complete, and what a year it was with new art, more exposure and more fun. Here’s to another year complete and new things coming along next year. To 2023!!!!!
Kalwa Christmas Pin Up
Merry Christmas from Green Raptor Studios, hope you all have a good day and truly make it nice and jolly. Also enjoy this fun artwork of Kalwa and the crew just for today…
Artwork of HP Lovecraft’s most famous creature, the ancient god of the old world Cthulu. This had been in my sketchbook since I drew HP Lovecraft himself (posted earlier this month), but I felt the sketch needed some work before becoming a full on drawing, so it took a little while longer to do. I actually just read the Call of Cthulu book a few weeks ago and really enjoyed the story and Lovecraft’s writing style, which helped with the drive needed to finish this.
I kinda wanted to go for the whole monster in the mist feeling, keeping giant Cthulu mostly in shadow against the bad storm, giving off the perspective of what those sailors on board are seeing. A giant mysterious creature that only spells their impending doom.
Anyway, hope you all like my lastest “masterpiece.”
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.
Owl House Art
So one last hoorah before we finish up with our Halloween draw off (this isn’t related). So this month I discovered Disney’s the Owl House, mostly in anticipation for the 1st of final episode specials. Well I fell in love with the show, and even watched the whole series TWICE in one month. The show’s story, the characters and even reading up on creator Dana Terrace’s history in making it kinda gave a major boost in creative energy and drive to make my own projects a reality, starting of course with Kalwa’s official publishing. More on that later.
Anyway, one little joy I have with making art like this is being able to take stylized cartoon characters and adding my own style and twist on them. I’ve kinda done a similar thing in the past with characters like Izzy from Total Drama and Ariel from little mermaid. So anyway, of course Luz the main character of the show was the focus and this month I cranked out THREE drawings of her this month in my own style. And I realized that none were posted to this site, so enjoy this owl house super package of all that’s come out this month. And I’ll probably be doing more in the future given how head over heals in love I am with this show.
YET EVEN MORE HALLOWEEN 2022
Round three of our all Halloween Draw off is up everyone. This round we are bringing you the delayed Xenomorph, aka Alien, Jason Voorhees, and to add a little lightness, Dipper and Mabel Pines from Gravity Falls. This is our final round for this year’s draw off and the last of fanart. Next week on Halloween Day we will be uploading our finale for this year, so stay tuned for that. Meanwhile, I hope everyone enjoyed all we had to give this year!
Marin Kitagawa (again)
Long time no post. I’ve kinda lost track updating this website and recently I fell off track from updating the Kalwa comic and had to catch up on that. So this drawing was actually a sketch I did at lunchtime at my day job, I kinda liked it so much that I I converted it to a digital drawing. I’m actually thinking of doing stuff like this more often since I’ve started doing full on illustrations for lunchtime sketches, and it’s much easier to draw and play around on break than after work when I’m tired. Anyway, hope everyone enjoys it.
