To 2023

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!!!!!

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.

Kalwa KOHAKU

Everyone’s dressing up for Halloween, our very own Kalwa included. She dyed her hair so she could be ,my true love, Kohaku from Dr. Stone. Those who follow should know I love drawing Kohaku, and even once had both Kalwa and Kohaku meet once before. So this was such a thrill to draw, especially with the opportunity to draw Kalwa with blonde hair. I actually had just gotten the Banpresto season 2 Kohakur figure for my anime figure collection so I had a lot of reference to go off of.

Kohaku

Those who know me should know I love Kohaku from Dr. Stone. Aside from being a warrior, she’s also just so darn cute and pretty. So once again I just wanted to draw her after spending a certain amount of time in my sketchbook at lunch perfecting her. Her eyes in particular have gotten real fun to draw!
