Elf girl joker
What the heck is this and how did it get here:
The harlequin elf joker was a casual drawing colored using G'MIC's "Colorize interactive" filter. I had some fun with Krita's airbrush. That's all.
The original was drawn with blue pencil, inked with an ordinary 0.4 black pilot and scanned as "line art" using Xsane (for Linux), which causes the blue lines to disappear (so I didn't have to erase anything).

Credits:
Andrade font, GIMP, Krita, pcards GIMP brush. I can't find where I got it or who created it, but I think that's an awesome brush!. Do you know the author?

Note:
This is not related to any characters from comics produced in the U.S.
Those comics are too expensive in my country (because of shipping and taxes), and you need to buy zillions of them to read a whole story. Nay. Not my thing. I prefer French comics. You can read a whole story (or several) just buying one volume, and that's it (my favorite U.S. comic artist is currently John Chalos).
Harlequin (Arlecchino) is an old Italian character.

Y elf girl
Just something I did for fun in Krita, with some retouches in GIMP.
The reference model is a pic my sister took some time ago.

Feel free to use as background if your are programming a backgammon app, or print on your favorite material.
The central celtic knot is believed to be a traditional design in the public domain (to the best of my knowledge).
The red and black triangular designs were drawn using Krita's multibrush tool.
Enjoy!

Let's check how "Kitch" am I:

☑ Cheesy art.
☑ Pretentious (I love imagining that any piece of shiny junk is some mystical artifact. Yeah!).
☑ Excessive ornamentation (Heck, yeah! I love it!).
☑ Cheap materials (Yay! They're definitely my stuff!).
☑ I'm from a poor country.
☒ Commercial intention.
☒ Female artist.

Yeah! I'm an almost perfect "Kitch" artist!

The ☒ on "commercial intention" is not because I haven't tried to sell one or two things. I just gave up.

So being male is my sole imperfection as a Kitch artist. You know how prejudices work in art:

If a white european man creates something really cheesy, art critics will say it is "art".

If a dark-skinned woman from a third world country creates something really cheesy, art critics (and other artists) will say it is "kitch".

So, the same work could be "art" or "kitch" based on the sex and/or race of whoever created it.

I think I prefer to be called "Kitch". ;)

I've loved drawing since 1988. I studied technical and architectural drawing in the 80's, dabbled into watercolors, oil, pastels and whatever, just for fun.
I have illustrated books on magic tricks.
