Man, the shading in that study is awesome! I love it! The mug choice was spot on too - creapy squid all the way mate!

Aloha TC!
Hewey~Thanks buddy! Glad you dig it! This study might be up for sale along with the painting at the Bali-Hai. IF I get the painting DONE in time for the show! This week end is full, no painting time cause of my business partner's wedding. He's coming HERE to get hitched at the Mauna-Lani! Up Side, I get to hang at the really choice beach at the resort for a day.

Da Painting...

Paintin' da' Mug. "Gambino-esque magic pin stripping".

Mahalo from the volcanic Big Island of Hawaii.

I really hope that prints will be available. The combination of Tiki/Squid/Lovecraftian themes will make it perfect for the Kanaloa lounge (my future home tiki bar...or MFHTB for short).

hey Brad- i haven't read this whole subject's thread yet, so if i'm treading repeditive grounds here, just point me in the right direction- what do you think of omitting the underpainting?- and have you done it for the whole piece? i remember you were talking about this on the last one.
looking amazing, -maybe my favorite one? hard to say-they're all so kick ass!

You really did a nice job rendering the mug, this first post he was looking a bit flat.


But this rendering just took it to a whole new level.



Awesome stuff. (Bastard!)

I love this piece, and I'm really flattered that I somehow inspired a bit of it..... Such a cool piece, Brad - These pieces of yours are tiki history in the making!

In honor of your latest, I decided to watch my copy of "The Creature from the Black Lagoon" where, of course, the creature ends up carrying the girl, not once, but twice.

For 1954, the creature costume is state-of-the-art and the stunt diver who swims for up to 4 minutes without air... makes it magic.

Not to mention, all the fantastic underwater photography and choreography.

As a kid, I couldn't believe my eyes!

Aloha!
Slacksferret~ Thanks! Prints Yes! The plan is that this will be the first painting to be reproduced as a (realitively) inexpensive giclee on paper. I'd be really thrilled and honored to be hanging in your Tiki Bar!
JPMDOG~Big Mahaloz my art making pirate buddy!
Grog~Yes, the triple reflected surface really changed the shape and 3-D feel of the mug. Thanks so much for noticing!
Isleconch~ Mahalo! The girl, she's coming up soon..... I hope. I'm such a weird painter, I usually paint something twice anyways! I'm seeking to stream line my process, but I'm sorta' OCD and nervous about painting still, so things get worked and then reworked. Perhaps I'll relax as time goes on.
SAM!~ Big Mahaloz! I was very excited when I found out I could do a little reflection of your cool style in this one! Thanks for the inspiration!
Grog~ HA! That's actually really cool looking! Gives me an idea for a tiki jam! Maybe I could have Kenny design a tiki for my next painting, and I could render it in my style.
Tiki Fool~ Oh yeah, baby! There's a LOT of low brow art in the world that has been influenced by that film! (I just saw a freaking amazing new painting by XNO that had the gill man snuk into it.) So glad I could move you to watch that classic!


The painting as it stands now. Mere days to finish it!

Here's a close up on the floating refreshment... Would you swig outa this?

So, lots going on here, I'm pulling some long days to get enough painting time in. Next few days will be important!

I WOULD CHUG OUTTA DAT MUG!
NOW QUIT PIDDLIN AROUND WITH THE MUG AND THE BUBBLES AND THE TRIPLE REFLECTIONS AND GET THAT MAIN CHARACTER GOING!!!!!!!! the clock is tickin! Here's where an artist gets to Push himself to the limits of talent, perserverance,and intensity! These are the best times when painting! By the way, i heeeered that there's 3 Creature from the Black Lagoon movies...is that true? Gotta go check Netflix!
Awesome painting Brad! Can't wait to caress its surface when you're not looking!
