A couple of recent fan arts for two characters that have really been on my mind as of recently. Jinx from League of Legends, who has really come to mind thanks to the Arcane Netflix series, note that this is supposed to be her in game outfit rather than what she wears in Arcane.
We also have She-Ra from the Netfilx tv series. I’ve actually been practicing with her in my sketchbook, so I had a real idea of how I wanted her to look. As Adora is a teenager in the series I wanted She-Ra to look more like a mature teen. Anyway, hope you enjoy.
Merry Christmas Eve everyone, and allow me to present this year’s Kalwa’s Christmas illustration. So yes, this year I was watching a lot of commercials with singing and red in them, which inspired me to draw Kalwa in a red dress singing from her heart. Hope you all have happy holidays!
Just for Christmas, the Miser Brothers from A Year Without a Santa Clause. This is kinda a small little experiment I’ve started of making stop motion puppets into real organic looking manga styled characters. I did a similar project earlier with Bitch Puddin’ from Robot Chicken. These two I’ve actually been experimenting in the sketchbook with, trying to translate their parts to manga style, so here’s the result of several experiments just in time for Christmas.
This is kinda an updated remake of a piece I did exactly one year ago today. So personally, Kohaku is my anime sweetheart, she’s so cute and at same time a warrior girl whose good with blades. So last year while sleeping I had a dream where Kohaku was wearing a wedding dress. Immediately I had to draw her, but over time I feel the original drawing wasn’t as good as I could’ve done. I’ve actually recently started practicing drawing familiar anime characters in their original art styles. One to get rid of the butterflies in my stomach when I draw them and two, to learn new techniques to better my own style. So here’s a full body remake of Kohaku wearing the dress, using some of the new techniques I’ve learned from practice. Finally got her eyes right, after learning to let go.
I’m so upset with myself for not updating this site more frequently. I’ve been so busy updating the Kalwa site and doing other work over there and I’ve virtually forgotten to post updates to this site. There actually was a bit of stuff posted to some of my other social media outlets this past month for Halloween. So there’s a bit of catch up to do.
So I’m uploading a piece from Halloween, the Headless Horseman. I’ve wanted to draw the character for years but never got around to it. As a full disclaimer this is kinda self design Headless Horseman, I wanted him to look very demonic and un-natural, hence why the horse might look a little… out of the ordinary. Also as the Horseman is a dead ghost, he essentially wears his injuries with pride, I’ve always had a thing for villains like that. Anyway, enjoy possibly the most gruesome art I’ve done to date.
Right off the coattails of Makoto Shishio, comes Kohaku from Dr. Stone a frequent subject of mine. Truth be told I have a little woman worship for her and always feel that when I see someone elses art of her I feel inferior. So this time, I just went for cute, making her look as cute as possible eating some Ramen.
A new illustration of Makoto Shishio from Ruroni Kenshin, one of my favorite anime villains of all time. I did an image of this character last year, but I felt the shading came out a little too dark on that one and it washed out the fine inking details, so I wanted to make amends in this new illustration of the character. Hope everyone enjoys it.
A repost of the latest fan art of Kohaku from Dr. Stone. I did this after reviving a criticism about the size of my faces and size of heads, I really noticed it on the old art I did of this character. So I decided to do another piece of the character to make amends.
Just a repost if this lovely image of Tai and Twilight Sparkle as mer-lovers. I had done an older version of this for Met-May nearly two years ago and thought the original was gorgeous with its body language, but largely outdated on my skill set, so I wanted to re-draw it with my more enhanced skills in late 2019.
