Thanks Hewy, and everyone for your feed back. It's like gold to an artist in the process to hear other tiki enthusiasts thoughts.
Still no net up... so I'm sure my neighbor is wondering why his wireless is so slow as I load this next photo...

My container may arrive tomorrow. More art supplies! Weee!
Aloha from the Kona-side!

I hate you, I hate you, I hate you. As I seethe with jealous rage. This one is coming along great. I'm going to go cry over my inadequacy now.

Hey there Frostiki, I feel your pain. Really. I mean after I painted the clouds, I was seriously thinking of stopping this one, painting over the canvas, and starting another one, because it looked so completely wrong to me. I fret and pain over my work all the time. Ken! I'm totally missing the Tonga Hut! I will always keep the memory of dancing with Crazy Al, Squid, Mrs Squid and Grog while downing a bit too much Voodoo juice close to may heart. The color is... is... well If I could up load this image you could see it. My neighbor's wireless is even slower tonight than usual... It's still not doing it...

Wow, that took A long time! So, it's a fiery orange. I think the pine apple is coming out of a lava pit on this one..
Mahalo and Aloha from the Big Island!

Nice! Lookin'great! That warm against cool colors really brings it forward! You're always so worried about the colors and you don't realize (or may slowly be realizing) that your instincts and art intellect are all you need! An artist's self doubt can be a most silent and stealthy enemy....Beware of it....shun it! Get that DSL up man!You're so lucky being so far away from these clowns! The Tonga Hut floor is looking to get quite dirty and bloody! As I jump into the MUGWARZ fray on Saturday, I will envy you on that quiet island,painting and feeding your soul!

Just a suggestion. Your blue on the face, particularly on the nose and mouth, match the sky behind it too much and almost make it seem like we're seeing through the tiki to the sky, so you might want to adjust those shadows/reflected light a bit. They work better on the legs where the color behind the tiki is dark brown. I think part of it is that the blue is SO much colder and is so bright in the shadows that it competes too much with the warm hilights. The shadows should appear to recede more than the highlights. You'r almost losing the 3D quality with the shadows competing so much with the hilights. GROG almost like it better in the previous post when the shadows were a dark brown. The blue shadows almost make the backside of the tiki blend into the background.

GROG know you're still working on it and it's progressing nicely, plus pictures never do the art justice, so GROG sure it looks better in person than what the pics portray.

Just GROG's 2 cents, take it or leave it.

I don't know, I think the blue is right. TikiShark paints with a magic paintbrush, so just let the brush do what it wants. Its hasn't let you down yet, has it?

That sure didn't sound like Mr.GROG! More like Dr.Ernie Keen....indubitably! What a fancy pants artsy showoff! He should do less yapping and more painting! I love the progress pics! Keep 'em coming! MUGWARZ!

Yeah, these guys are right. Several years of art classes in college and over 20 some-odds years as a professional artist working for some of the largest studios in the world I guess doesn't qualify GROG to offer any critical advice. Just use your magic paintbrush and everything will come out right.

It IS looking good, Bradmeister, GROG looking forward to seeing it finished.

Hey Grog, do I detect sarcasm? I just think that it looked right to me when I saw it. And its already done that way. I haven't seen your work but for in TikiMagazine and I believe TikiSharks work seems something special. Its has a glow about it that I usually don't see it others paintings. But what do I know I have been drawing my whole life, art classes, art minor(but probably enough credits for a Major).


I made my first tiki mug 20 years ago at the age of seven. Its a good one, I still have it.

a little editing..
