ALOHA TIKI TRIBE!
cy - thanks. I always find the in progress shots of other artists the most interesting too...
zerostreet - Big Mahalo!
little lost tiki - Thanks! It was fun painting them, after I got over the idea I had to make them look like real orchids, and then easy after I got the idea to make them Orchids from outer space, or another dimension...

here's the next step in "Hawaiian Eye" letting this one look more painterly, so I'm not hiding my brush strokes. I reworked the comp a bit, and got the building a little more worked out.

ALOHA TIKI TRIBE!
umeone - Thanks so much!

Here's the next step...

worked out the building some more, working on the lettering (always tricky) and got the zombie/skeleton lurking in the up stairs window done. More to come...
Aloha!

I don't know if it's just me...or that skeleton hanging out the window, but so far this one is shaping up to be even more surreal than your usual stuff. I just discovered Hawaiian Eye a little while ago and am working my way through the first season, so I dig the connection you have going there.

Aloha Tiki Tribe!
tigertail777 - Ahhhh, yeah, I think you are right. As I get a better command of what the heck I'm doing, I seem to drifting into more pop-surreal, or guess I should say poly-pop-surrealism. I hope I'm creating a distinct style.

Step 4.) Worked out the building abit more, Smoothed the figure a tad.

Here's a closer look.

ALoha!

Nice Brad! Loving this one so far! I can't ever see a Private "eye" on a door without thinking of the Little Rascals for some reason!

ALOHA TIKI TRIBE!

zerostreet - Oh yeah! THATS where that is from! Spanky!
Step 5:

More detail on the building. Added in the trees, and another tiki (can't have too many of those!) Roughed in his Aloha Shirt.

Here's a close up.

ALOHA!

ALOHA TIKI TRIBE!

Step 6: I evened up the tiki's eyes a little - I noticed one was a bit off. Then started to lay in some light semi transparent tones on the tiki-man. The idea will be to have him in warm tones so he stands out from the cool blue and green of the night background. I think they will have to be red orange yelllow, and magenta. More to come!
ALOHA!

ALOHA TIKI TRIBE!
umeone - thanks! Yeah, lettering is REAL tricky for me. I keep retouching it as I go (cause I'm so bad at it) till it looks good nuff!

Step 7: laying in warmer tones on the Detective Tiki so he pops out of the cool blue green night. How loud should his shirt get? Hmmm good question!
More later!

ALOHA TIKI TRIBE!

Chuck Tatum is Tiki, thanks! This one is a bit overly colorful maybe. I thing I may tone it down after I get it more finished. Had to move the tiki's foot over to the left, add on a bit more torso, so his head didn't look like it was too off center.
