Elfa Nov20-18
A curious image escaped from a brush I have when it touched a notebook page.
猫ちゃん (Neko chan) by 月葉 (Moon Leaves). I just added some color. The original line art can be found here:
Some things look better when you make them uglier.
I wasn't happy with this painting.
I worked on a sanguine drawing I wasn't really satisfied with, and just adding colours using a digital painting program didn't change the fact that the drawing wasn't good.
But then, making it look like some old faded painting, and adding careless calligraphy, using the most vulgar dark red faded ink made it look interesting.
I kinda like this version. :)
Another failed experiment
I learned this: A scanned sanguine drawing blends nicely with digital painting. Just make sure the sanguine drawing really looks the way you want before wasting time coloring it. :D
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.
