Hey! When did you sneak in that spaceship?! I didn't see that in the original sketch! Shades of Doug Horne's "Invasion of Planet Tiki". Look it up, it's a cool print.

After all this talk of "Cthulhu," I finally decided to look it up and see what the heck a cthulhu is. Sometimes the Google image search is a frightening thing! I like your version, 'cuz it's a bit creepy, but not too scary!

This is coming along beautifully! I guess I'll have to get myself down to San Diego to see it in person!

I don't know if its cause you are posting more finished work faster or cause you aren't wasting energy on non-colored painting but this stuff is amazing.

Aloha!
Jentiki~ Well, the space ship was in one of the later sketches. Actually I'm not happy with it yet. It will have to get better looking, or turn into a small cloud!
Groggy~ Happy birthday to you, Happy birthday to you, Happy birthday Dear Gorggy! Happy Birthday to you!
Paipo~ U Funny! But you should be careful. I bet it's screw the art threads up if you accidentally summoned a Shogoth through Tiki Central!
Vinman~Mahaloz! I'm so glad your digging the step by step. I always enjoy watching other artist's post like this, so that's why I do it.
Teakey~ It does seem much faster with out having to do a whole under painting. I think it looks pretty much as good as if it had one. guess I still have lots to learn about that whole under painting thing. I may go back to it somewhere in the future.

Here's the over all. Less white space is GOOD

It's sort of that same weird Tiki Hut I keep painting. I think it may be a compulsion! Of course I'm excited to be doing a neon sign on this one!

I got about 16 days left to finish this!

Big Malohoz from the Big Island!

This is looking awesome.

Aloha TC!
Keep the UFO? OK, I'll work on it and see if I can make it look better.

Here's the whole thing.

Here's a closer look at the Tiki Hut. It's been a bit difficult working out the lighting on the Tikis. Sunset light vs neon sign light vs the light that might be coming through the door way. I guess that may be the thing I'll be working out today. And just what color should the light inside the Tiki Lounge be? Usually, you alter warm and cool light. So, If the sunset is warm, and the neon sign is cool, and the tiki lounge should be warm. But not the same color as the sunset. Perhaps a purple or pink light source?

Malahalo!

I vote Purple!! Or maybe a spooky red, like something evil is going on inside!

BRad, this is great, and I hate you for the greatness. Now I must go cry over my lack of ambition and mediocrity.

Aloha!

Jentiki~Purple/red?
Ravenne~pink/purple?
OK, It'll be a purple/reddish/pink like color!
Frostiki~Oh, sounds like some one has a case of the "Mondays"! Time for a mai tai!

Here's the wide shot.

And a better shot of the door to the Tiki Lounge. the lighting is starting to make sense. Sorta....

I got about 16 days left to finish it!

Mahaloz!
