post. Not sure if it benefited from color or not to be honest. What do you think?

Part of my experiment with adding color to my drawings using GIMP. I figured I would post this one first, as I've already made this the profile picture for the various W&F Kreations social media sites. This one is really good I think. I also think the color helps to mask some of my drawbacks as an artist. Expect to see a lot more color!
I was working on some drawings recently and after scanning them in decided to try out the painting tools in GIMP. I was so happy with the results that I am going back and trying out color on some of my older drawings. So if you see something that looks somehow familiar, it's probably a picture I posted before in black and white. Looking forward to the new fun this will open up.

Not the most outrageous bit of costuming I saw that day, but it was nice to see that even the older generations were getting in on the fun. Thanks to the political tensions many younger people think that older people are all uptight and too serious. It's good to do anything you can to change those perceptions.
This actually started out as just doodling, but then it reminded me of a picture that Aleister Crowley drew of the being that dictated the Book of the Law. Only it looked more feminine somehow, so I added the lips and named it Lady Aiwass. Then I decided to give it some color to keep it from being just a bad drawing, so now it's a bad painting!

I changed this one up quite a bit from the photo that it is modeled on, so as to make it not quite so NSFW. I actually think making her be dressed more conservatively adds something to the paicture. The paper wrinkled when I scanned it, which bummed me out, but I was feeling lazy and didn't want to rescan it, so here you go.

The x marks the spot where Kennedy was when the fatal bullet hit him. It's weird to be there and see traffic driving over it like it's no big deal. My first time in Dallas I drove over it without even realizing where I was until later. This pic is available on 500px and Dreamstime.
This is the infamous grassy knoll in Dallas TX, where it is alleged that a second gunman fired at President Kennedy. This was taken in 2016, but it hasn't changed much. I have a few pix from Dealey Plaza that I am going to post. You can see this at our 500px page or over on Dreamstime.

Okay, so I know he's just a larper, but look at his feet guys. HIS FEET ARE TOTALLY NOT TOUCHING THE GROUND!!! He's walking on air. Burn him!!! Kill him with fire!! He's a witch I tells ya! Anyway, this dude is a larper who was in a parade and the camera caught him at just the right instant to catch this fun pic. Oh, and if you see this man, please don't hurt him. I was onlhy playing earlier. I shouldn't have to say that, but people are crazy, so...

I got off on my count, so you may notice there are two white squares adjacent to each other. Oh well. The lines are a little crooked as well, just I did this free hand and didn't use a ruler or anything. It's a good thing I don't make any claims at being good at this. Still I think it turned out ok.

You can probably guess what celebrity's photo this was modeled on. Tried to put the right side in shadow, didn't really work out that well for me. This may be the first time though that I used a celebrity photo as a model and the celebrity was recognizable when I finished. Haven't been practicing as much as I'd like lately due to being caught up with other things. Got to get back on track.
