Aloha TC!
Pablus~Cool! That's the ultimate thing a tiki artist wants to hear! Mahaloz!
wplugger ~ Well now... I'm NOT saying that a evil genius named Donovan was flying his private trans-pacific plane and crashed on a mysterious tropical island and was mortally wounded until a mad scientist transplanted his brain into a vat to keep it alive where it's mental powers grew until it gained the ability to control tropical drinks with it's mere thoughts. I'm not saying that's what this painting is all about. But, I'm not saying it's not either!
Ravenne~Thanks! Glad you're diggin the brain!

Here's the whole piece thus far...

The Tiki Lounge. (Mai Tai madam? Sure, sure, sure)

Mahalo for watching! Have a great weekend!

Brad!
Dude!
You're almost done!
lovin the shrimp-brain and his container!
Reminds me of some CC Beck (old Capt Marvel-Dr. Sivana) meets Jack Kirby contraptions!
These pieces of yours just get finer and finer!
and of course,you're saving the best part for last....
If you can get this one done in the next few days,
then you can start up another piece for the show!
That would be SuperAwesome!
Boris said the Bali Hai Mai-Tais are STRONG!
I think a Tiki Artist Chug-a-Thon is in order on the 2nd!

Yo Bradsky - totally diggin it - once again am amazed by the subtle background details creating realistic environment. Where others would fill in with color, you sculpt and create an amazing stage. Seems some of your old movie making shining through! When I worked as an on set artist, I would often defend the integrity of the art department and fight to maintain the set 'as designed' , despite the testosterone of the stunt coordinator or special fx team and their narrow focus on 'the action' only. I was so frequently told, "If they're looking at that, they're looking at the wrong thing!" That's what is sooo cool about your style and paintings..... no matter where you look on your canvas, the scene is interesting and meticulous!
Go Brad Go!

Love this brain! I'll take this one!

Aloha TC!
LLT~Thanks buddy! Jack Kirby is so my hero! His machines were always intergalactic mind bending masterpieces! As a kid I was always half afraid I'd be walking to school and take a wrong turn, accidentally step through a inter-dimensional doorway and end up in Kirby's Negative Zone! By the By I LOVE the cannibal king, and can't wait to see it in person at the Bali-Hai! I don't know How you're gonna get that HUGE new piece finished in time!
Sam~That's head swelling praise coming from a master like you! Big Mahalo!
Jpmartdog~Thanks! HA! "It's pronounced Eye-Gore!" You totally got me figured out! I'm all about creating a whole little "world" or stage for the tiki action. I was on location for a movie a while back, and in between shooting, I'd sit and watch the DP light the set, for like 5 hours at a time. I'd be sitting there totally enthralled!
After about a week of this, the DP noticed me, and had me come up and take a look through the eye piece in the camera. The "scene" I saw through the camera was amazing! He explained how he was creating a stage for the action.
He was using light to pick out thet parts of the environment he wanted to stand out. This creates depth and distance and focus, all with lighting. It was like that old phrase "painting with light!" That made a impression on me that echos in my hollow noggin to to this day. So when I'm painting, I'm thinking "if this was a set, how would it be cool to light this?"

Here's "forbidden Island" with only about 9 days left to finish!

Here's the tiki Lounge. I made the "Brain Waves" red. I wasn't sure what color to make them for along time. but, I think red will blend well with the purple interior and the orange exterior. Now, I just have to figure out what "brain waves" look like...

Thanks fer looking at the da' art!
Aloha from the volcanic Big Island!

Just the brain conjuring up the "puppy-from-hell" shows how evil it is.

I figure they look like lightning, red lightning in this case It makes sense, the brain sends out electrical impulses to muscles to tell them waht to do, and it's also a nice monster tie-in with Frankenstein

Aloha TC and Happy " discovery Day" as it's called here in Hawaii.
Grog~ Yep, that is evil!
Isleconch~Big Mahaloz!
Hewey~ Brilliant! GREAT idea! Your electric idea got me started! Then, I sorta mushed it into a organic looking thing. Thanks!

Now it's sort of a squirmy cross between lighting and Sam Gambino pin stripping.

Aloha!

Yay! Bubbles!

Oh, yeah the brain waves look really cool too! I like how the brain/container has been set back into the hut with the additional lighting on the roof edges and the front tiki. That was looking a little odd for a bit.
