Ahhhhh (In Color)

This one was hard to color for some reason.  You may notice the color is a bit uneven.  I think it is because it was drawn on really cheap paper which made the surface a bit splotchy.  I still like the way it turned out though.  The original can be seen here.  Somehow the color makes it seem less like ecstasy or agony and more like surprise or shock that is being expressed.  Maybe that's just me though.  What are your thoughts?

Baby Tree Branch

A new branch sprouting on an older tree.  It's kind of neat I think.

Full Metal Alchemist

I added a background color and made his eyes the same color.  Not sure if it added anything to the original in this case or not.  What do you think?

Pirate Lady

Arrr now there be a fine lookin' woman indeed matey.  Here is woman letting out her inner pirate.

Alien

I decided to go with something a little silly for one of my first experiments with color.  This is an alien from a series of cartoon characters that I drew and shared in an earlier post. Not sure if it benefited from color or not to be honest.  What do you think?

Pink Tutu

She is rockin' the pink tutu and pink jacket!  I love catching high fashion moments with my camera.

Masked Parade Girl


Look at the cute little girl in the mask throwing beads!  That's really the whole point of this photo, just how adorable she is.  It's kind of neat how I caught the beads in mid toss too, but mostly just look her!!!  😻

Lips


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!

Trying something different

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.

Mardi Gras Granny


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.

Lady Aiwass


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!

Mardi Gras Crowd



These are a couple of crowd shots from the Mardi Gras parade earlier this year.  The little girlin the top one cracks me up, the one whose feet aren't even touching the ground.

Legs


I did a couple different versions of this, this is the one I ended up liking the best.  I played around with different colors and shadings.  Here is the one that I almost went with, but the one on top win out:


Which one do you like better?

Larpers

I think these were people from a Ren Fest kind of thing, but they had the big cushioned weapons so let's face it they are Larpers.  If you aren't familiar with larping it is live action role play where you dress in costume as a character and fight with padded weapons.  They were having a lot of fun and the costumes are good.

Wonder Woman and Superman

In case you haven't noticed I'm a comic book geek.  I don't draw more comic characters because I don't want to do just one thing and also I know I'll mess them up. This one is Wonder Woman and Superman running into action.  I am pretty happy with this one.  Could use more details and Superman's face is kind of weird but overall I think it's pretty good.

Party Girls

I didn't get to meet these girls, but man don't they look like they'd be a lot of fun?  Really dig those boots.

The Submissive Male


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.

King Bubba

The redneck Mardi Gras king making his processional. The helmet really pulls his outfit together, don't you think?

Smokin'

She ended up with the weirdest, skinniest arms ever.  Other than that it is not half bad I guess.  Of course she is smoking a completely legal substance.  😉

Hoodie

She'd better be careful wearing that hoodie in the wrong neighborhood.

Full Metal Alchemist

This is the little brother from Full Metal Alchemist.  If you are not familiar with the show you should go watch it.  This was supposed to be bigger, but I cut it off cause it went wonky further down.
