Brad -

I wanted to reply sooner but in the meantime everyone else have basically expressed what I want to say.

You know I appreciate your posts and I look forward to each new update.
In lieu of being repetitive, again, let me say (being its early January and still appropriate)

- Happy New Year!

Your efforts do shine joy and inspiration onto what can be a routine daily existence. Thanks.

Tunbunga - Big Big Thanks! I've seen your paintings, they're good. You're good!! The fear of screwing up what you've already done is huge. But once you can get past that, it's the fearless plunging onward that gives you speed and energy. Althought I don't know if I could ever match your sheer speed in producing art!
Oh yeah, I remember what I was gonna say to you: There are 2 "underground L A " artists that have names I wish I had. Gris Grimly and Eric October. You guys should do a 2 man show, that would RAWK!
Atomic Tiki Punk~ Thanks, but...Oh, that all changed today when I decided to re-paint the whole darned thing!
LLT - more skulls on da way!
TikiG - too kind my friend!@ Happy New year to u 2!
Here's the strange view today.

Could have sworn it was a green flash to the naked eye.
Seems not so on film.
Da were Wolf is like dis...

But I hated it.
So I started the basic "look" for his head all over again.

Pencil study

Now it's transmogrifying.....
Aloha,
B~

Atomic Tiki Punk ~ Thanks! Jus' trying to Live Aloha Buddy!

OK, here's where the new "Were Wolf of Waikiki" is at...

I became unhappy how he was rendering out the first time.
I figured I needed to rethink his look. So I watched "The Wolf Man", "Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man" and "The Werewolf of London". I like the Lon Chaney Jr. Wolf Man a lot, but I was really impressed with the cool look of "The Werewolf of London". Then I watched again one of the best Werewolf make-ups: Oliver Reed in "The Curse of the Werewolf". That's a cool werewolf!
I redrew his head, and used those movies plus some old toys, and even my own face as reference.
Plus I think Elvis's 75th birthday had some influence. Anyways, there it is roughed out.

Now, I'm unhappy with the... tiki drum.

ALOHA,
Brad~

LLT~ Thanks! I had stuck the star on the tiki drum after watching the Wolf man. The "pentagram" as the sign of the werewolf and all dat. But, yeah, it looked too goofy to me too.
Frankenstein Meets the Wolf man - I dig that film. Seems like it's got a lavish budget (for the 40's). And it ends with a battle between the monster and the Wolf man! But, a lot of horror film fans give Bela Lugosi low marks for his portrayal of the Frankenstein Monster. He flings his stiff arms around in a crazy manner. What the commentary on the Legacy edition DVD says is that in the original script the monster was supposed to be blind, and he had dialog explaining that. The studio didn't like Lugosi's accent so cut all his dialog out, and we're never told he is blind. If you watch it with the idea that the monster is sightless, Lugosi's performance is actually much better.
teaKEY~ well, I hope to get it done today. I think it needs a little tropical flora now.

Almost there...
ALOHA
B~

Koop~ Thanks Koop! He creeps you out a tad? Is it because I gave him your old hair style.
swamp fire~ Big mahalo. It's got an Elvis thing, that's true. I was also realizing I had some Brian Setzer and Stray Cats on the I pod mix while I was working on this, and I think that also manifested in his hair.
It's done.

Aloha!
So, I got another canvas that's 14" x 11". Why not make a companion piece for "the Were wolf of Waikiki"? Like maybe...

The Kreature from Kona?
