New pages have been added to Kalwa chapter 23, and I must say that I’m really having a blast with this chapter. We’re now moving into a story which will have more emphasis on action and combat, so this is a time for me to unleash my experience on reading shonen and other action based manga. Mainly I’m looking at action scenes from Naruto to design the line work for these pages and it’s really helped me get through this tough time the world is going through. I’m truly in love right now with this ability to craft scenes and motion and I just can’t stop myself working. So anyway, a shout out to everyone who reads my comics and especially to those who enjoy them. I hope you continue to read my and enjoy my work as much as I enjoy working on them.

So just like Amber this week, there is some updates over on our sister site Kalwa. We got not one but TWO page updates to the latest chapter of Kalwa as Kalwa and her brother head to JAPAN to receive some much needed training, but first there’s the little case of Kalwa’s mother to resolve. Click the thumbnail below and see what we’ve got this week in the latest Kalwa chapter!
Happy New Years Everyone, and remember the most important part about this is… it’s no longer 2020! It’s time now for new beginnings, new goals and new… pretty much everything. We’re starting off this year with a new chapter and a new story arch for Kalwa. This is a really big one for this story arch will be introducing a number of new characters and new plot lines that will have lasting impacts on the overall Kalwa story arch. We’re no longer just indulging in a simple story’s, we’re now in overall saga. The first two pages of chapter 23 are now on the Kalwa Website and can quickly accessed simply by clicking the thumbnails below. If you want to start the comic from the cover, click the first thumbnail, or if you just want to jump into it, click the second thumbnail to instantly go to the first page. New pages will be added throughout the month, so be sure to check back.
Happy day before Christmas Eve everyone, hope you’re all doing and well and patiently waiting for your presents. To help you wait, there’s a new page up for Amber today, bringing us one page closer to then end. As usual, click the thumbnail down below to read what’s in store for today!!!!
I’ve been trying to get my old characters back out there with new drawings and I’ve realized that I haven’t drawn these three in quite some time. So they are back now enjoying some quiet mediation time under the waterfalls.
It’s been a long time since I did a color image of Amber, mostly all the work with her has been in the comic pages. I admit that I kinda lost a bit of an urge to draw her because of all the work on the comic and I’m gonna admit that I made a mistake with the way I structured her story.
While I’m very happy by the positive response of Amber operating from a wheelchair, I feel I honestly have too many scenes in the comic of her confined to a wheelchair. The real fun of drawing a mermaid is having them swim in the ocean and playing with the flow of the body and motion. Simply drawing a mermaid being confined to a wheelchair as well as having to draw all the details of the wheelchair is not all the fun, especially when it goes on for twenty plus pages. So this drawing here is kinda the result of pent up aggression of not being able to draw a mermaid being free in the ocean for so long, and it really feels great to break free.
Greeting citizens of the planet Earth, hope everyone is still breathing after this rather stressful election week. Well as a little reward for pulling though it, we got a new Amber page up on the website, and in case the thumbnail isn’t obvious, Amber’s in over her head a bit. Click the thumbnail below and read the next entry in this one shot story to see whats going on.
Just a few sketches from the sketchbook, these are some random sketches of Kalwa and Zack. I believe the Kalwa drawing was done shortly after the change in style of the eyes, it was also to practice some gestures with her. This was also done when she would have three bangs on the left side of her head, a style that has since been abandoned. Now days she’s drawn with two bangs on each side of her head regardless of which side you see.
Zack was drawn shortly before his major role in chapter 14 of the comic, mostly practicing his facial expressions. This sketch was actually the debut of his current hairstyle which was actually based off the hair of my character Tai Bantly (often drawn with Twilight Sparkle). Initially Zack simply had spiky hair that went straight up, but it was changed to a more hedge look for chapter 14 and has remained that way since. Sometimes when drawing him it gets hard to get the length of the hairs consistent.
