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

I see your dilemma.

The brain is a #1 business type. He's up to no good and he tells you so.

The girl is a #2 business type. She's up to no good and insists she is not.

Historically, I drink from #3 types.

They insist that they are good. They honestly believe that they are good. But they end up as bad if not worse than a #1 or #2.

....NERVOUS !!!! What da ya mean you get nervous??? If I could paint half as good as you, I'd be at the Orsay museum (Paris). Just keep doin' what you're doin'...you are an inspiration to us all. Those bubbles and sweat drops are just fabulous.

Oh yeah...and those fruits...I just licked my screen_________________

That is looking absolutely FABULOUS Brad! I can't wait to see it (and you) at the art show.

I think a collaboration of Kinny doing a drawing and you painting it in your style is an awesome idea. I'd love love to see what comes out of that collaboration.

Aloha!
Big Big BIG Mahaloz to everyone for the support!

Here's the tiki roughed in. See? Even when I don't do an underpainting, I end up doing an underpainting, kind of.

Basically, I'm drifting back to my first painting technique I learned when I painted monster models as a kid. (Talk about Low Brow art!) First, paint everything black. Then slowly add colors in dark shades and lighter and lighter, till there's nothing left to paint.

OK - I'm gettin' back to work!

Aloha!
meheadhunter~Of course! I think it's a great complement to an artist that some one thinks enough of their art that they make it into ink!

Here's the wide shot.

Here's da tiki. Starting his woody texture.

More later...

Mahalo from the Big Island~

That's Creepy

Looking at the main dude, his left side has that Disney animation cell look/style. The right leg, totally realistic looking like he stepped off the page. The two together, crazy. You don't usually get to see this with other artist, the in betweens.

You said, “Basically, I'm drifting back to my first painting technique I learned when I painted monster models as a kid.... First, paint everything black. Then slowly add colors in dark shades and lighter and lighter, till there's nothing left to paint.”

Nothing low brow about it. That's a brilliant technique!

Right down to the wire! I think the pressure is good, cause it's bringing out the best in your work. Some of the lighting techniques in this one are nothing short of brilliant. It's very interesting going through your back catalogue of mystic tikis and seeing how far you've progressed in such a short time. Just wish I could see 'em in person

Look better?, you bet, but it was always going to get better each time.

I can totally see this painting in an Juxtapoz issue, if they know what is good. I think Jux. is slipping a bit but art like this could get it back on track. I bet they would at least put you in the showstoppers section, were they spotlight good art/artist.

I like these paintings more than a lot of Todd Schorr's stuff expect for the couple of large paintings that he has done. And then again I'm bias after seeing all these behind the sences work. It makes Tiki Central all the better for it.
