Cthulu Rises

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.”

Kohaku Date Night

Just a fun drawing of my animation crush Kohaku from Dr. Stone. I just can’t help but keep drawing her, she’s just so cute, adorable and real deva. I seriously hope to one day meet my “real life” Kohaku, someone as pretty and awesome as she is that will make me the happiest man in the world.

She’s actually drawn here on my real life porch, so there’s a bit of self insertion right here I might add. Hope everyone likes it.

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.

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!

HAlloween 2022

As we do every year, it’s the annual Halloween draw off. All month long I’ll be drawing monsters, dark things and just plain Halloween fun that involves both original and non-original characters. Here’s our first two drawings for the month, the Hatbox Ghost from Disney’s Haunted Mansion and Michael Keaton’s Batman from the 1989 classic. More awesome stuff on the way all month long!

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.

Borg Drone

A very complicated drawing of a Borg Drone. I’m not really much of a Star Trek fan, I do like the Next Generation and I’m quite fond of the characters Seven of Nine and Captain Janeway from Voyager, but not really a huge fan. I have however always liked the Borg, they’re so creepy and cool looking they really make the show fun. So here’s a random drone which was supposed to be a simple sketch but wound up becoming a lot more complicated. This isn’t based on any particular Borg from the show, and since Borg don’t have a uniformed look, this was kind of a “design as you go” project, which of course left me exhausted at the end of the day.

Ariel

Finally I draw Ariel for Mer-May, probably the most famous Mermaid and I haven’t done her Mermay once! So here we are at last with Ariel herself, drawn in a more realistic style. I got real obsessive on this piece as the thumbnail I drew in my sketchbook had such a lovely face that I couldn’t replicate on the finished work, so wound up tracing the face onto the final piece.
