This time I'm doing an under-painting. This way I can work out the light and shadows - I'm a bit fuzzy in the treasure chest area still. Anyway, it's about half way.
Aloha!

TS the colorized proof looks great so far. you may want to add a little orange to the highlights of the sunken ship, very subtle to play on the luminence of the eel. BTW very happy to learn that it was an eel and not a sea snake. Can't wait to see more. As soon as we get our Digital camera to be able to take more that one pic with out going through the batteries we'll post some more of Mrs, Frostiki's paintings and our prints.

Keep up the good work.

Hodadhank, thank you for making me fear snkaes even more. I thought I freaked out after seein Jaws as a kid, but this tops that. Bora Boris, very informative. You both must be as bored at work as I am.

Hey TC, I had some Tiki Shark beach towel work to get caught up on so was busy. But I got a few hours of painting in...

Here's the finished under-painting. It's the first time I've done an under-painting. I'm not totally sure how much it's helped me figure of some things. I has of course.

Here;s some of the sky... er..sea colored in. Needs lots more work.
Hope the holidays are good where you are.
Aloha from the Big Island!

Aloha Tiki Shark Art! Don't know if I've ever posted on here before, but I wanted to tell you that I'm a big fan of this thread and I think your work is amazing! I absolutely love the progress pics, and it's wonderful to see a piece come together in the end. Keep it up!

I have one question: Where the hell is the gallery on your website so I can at least buy some prints or something?
For cripes Tiki Shark, don't keep all this tiki goodness to yourself.....

I like totes and mats and all but where is the wall-candy?

oops that's two questions.

I like the treasure guarded by a snake. When I was a boy, this is the picture that I could look at all day and dream about finding hidden treasure like that.

I see in the last painting that you changed the way the blue looks in the nose and face but you still kept it blue. Great move.

Hopefully whoever comissioned this one will back out from buying it like your last painting, and GROG can buy it.

Bastard!

greenman - Thank you so much. I'm honored.
finkdaddy - Yeah I know, I'm working on a gallery page right now. After the move, and setting up the business again, and the art studio, and with having to stop everyday to go down and play in the waves with sea turtles and drink rum and watch the sunsets, well it's all coming together slowly. I have good photos of the paintings, and some will make it to be prints. someday. Hey, there is a real chance that a whole line of tea-shirts will be made from the "Mystic Tiki" series. I'm talking with one of Tiki Shark's business partners who's in the apparel business - and also a huge tiki fan. But, it's all talk till it happens ya know.
teakey - You noticed! Thanks.
grog - Hay, anything can happen! I'd be proud to have a piece hanging in the Grog cave, along side the Ruzic piece no doubt!

Coming along very nicely man. The "under" painting thing is new to me. Gave me an idea - what about a vintage looking print done in sepia tones? And there's one cool lighting element I am yet to see in your paintings - lightning!

One of my favourite threads

I'm with Hewey on that one! if you look at old thrift store paintings with the faded prints on wood all yellowy from coats and coats of lacquer! Your graphic precision shows before the colors are put in! Beautiful! And the ripples on the surface are coming along! remember that the light is all straight and smooth roaming from the sun to the earth,BUT when it hit's water, it's like a liquid mirror/reflector/lens... water has been described as a liquid crystal before-YUP! Have fun! Glad I'm not painting that! It would drive me mad in a frenzy to accurately depict it! Good job man! Happy New Year!

Seeing you're on a moai kick you should do a version of the pics I posted earlier - I would love to see how one of you artist types could interpret that!
I found this pic finally, which is the original one I had...it looks different to the other moai I posted - like a much bigger and older statue?


Back on topic, this one is going to have a quite a different feel to the others I think TSA...I'm really interested to see how the underpainting is going to affect the outcome.
A quick question...the ad you've got in Tiki mag, with the robot tiki carrying the girl...is the art from one of your playing card designs? It would make the best T-shirt ever.
