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.
I’ve been trying to branch out a little bit and do more illustrations of other characters from the Kalwa series other than just Kalwa herself. I first started with Toshiro and Miki a few weeks ago. So right now I’m bringing you Victor, the “original” Jack the Ripper killer who first encountered Kalwa in chapter 18 before mentally scarring her in the next chapter. I actually really felt like doing this drawing now at a time when the weather was cold, as the original Whitechappel murders happened around winter time. Even though the final one was in early November, Whitechappel was on edge throughout the Christmas season, so I was hoping to replicate a little of that feeling this season with this image right here. I had actually been watching the 1984 version of a Christmas Carol and took a lot of inspiration from the atmosphere created by the Ghost of Christmas Future, it’s how I decided to give a chilling atmosphere to this piece.
And to see this creepy guy in action, check out Kalwa Chapter 19 at THIS LINK
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and hope everyone nobody got too sick on the pumpkin pie. Anyway, as a little return to regular life, we got a brand new page of Amber up today and this is a big one as we start to discover what her REAL plan was all along! Find out what it is right now by clicking the thumbnail below!
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.
