Merry Christmas everyone from Green Raptor Studios, and I’d also like to give thanks to everyone who has followed, liked or even just tuned into this website. This was quite a year for everyone, myself included, but not in the way anyone expected. This terrible virus has completely engulfed the world, and many of use have been stuck inside this whole year. I myself intended to do more out in the world this year but all of that came crashing down as this virus came ravaging the land all over. However despite these hard times, I have noticed a spike for both this website and the Kalwa website, followers have gone up, views are becoming more frequent and I like to think that the content this website produces has played at least some kind of role in getting people through this tough time we are all going through. So from me to you, I thank everyone who has given their support to the work we produce here at Green Raptor Studios and hope you’ll all be with use for years to come. For there will be more content next year with more stories, artwork and hopefully more outings as we pull ourselves through this tough time, stay strong and stay safe everyone!!!!
A little pre-Christmas illustration featuring Sasha, a simple character I came up with years ago just drawing a couple of years ago while simply playing around with female designs in my sketchbook. She’s already made one appearance this year during the summer and now she’s back to show off the joy of a snow day, just simply enjoying a hot a beverage in the park. Remember everyone to stay warm and safe this Christmas and you’ll be as happy as she is now.
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.
We are SPEEDING towards the finish line people, just a few more pages left to go. This particular page update might be of great interest to all you Amber fans as it features a bit of “subtle” fan service. Click that thumbnail below and see what’s going in today’s update!
I’ve put a few WIPs on social media, so this is a character who will be debuting in the next story arch of Kalwa. This character is named Toshiro Sato who is actually set to become not only a major character in the arch, but in the overall Kalwa story as a whole. Toshiro is the son of a master swordsman named Hideyoshi, who started his own foundation in the feudal era and trains runaways in the way of weapons. Toshiro is not only his son, but his assistant in training new students. He’s also got a little sister named Miki who he is constantly trying to protect. I’ll be doing a portrait for her as well later on.
