Aloha TC!
Jentiki~ Yeah the lighting on the inside roof poles really helped. Now, ya know there isn't really supposed to be like a big hole in the tiki lounge. It's sort of a cut away view. I was not sure how it would really "read". But, seems okay.
Ravenne~Thanks. 7 days left to finish!
Frostiki~Mahalo! Evil puppies, evil brains, guess I have not done an evil tiki yet.
IsleConch~thanks! Oh, I think the best part is still to come! (I hope)

Did some work on the Palm Tree. Now the flowers. Flowers! Last time I did them I was shocked at how complicated they are. All those curved surfaces! Well, let's see if maybe It'll be easier this time around.

Well, back to slapping paint!
Mahaloz!

Aloha TC!

Here's an over view of da thing. Roughly filled in the leaves and flowers.

It doesn't look so bad in this shot, but in person, the vibrancy of the sudo-psychedelic palm tree fonds aganist the blue sky is so powerful, it's overwhelming the rest of the painting. Your eye just keeps getting jerked back to this super intense graphic palm tree. While it's actually kind of cool, it's might be too much for this painting. Dunno. Might have to over paint the palm fonds.

Tic Tock Tic Tock!

Mahalo!

Oh, I just got it.

The evil brain is enticing Robbie the Tiki with a rum drink to bring the girl inside.

Aloha,
Paipo~You like the first Mug design more? I was gonna go with the second design, thinking that the first one was too weird.
Grog~Yes, the foreground question. Funny, I moved on to the flowers and now, seeing the colors in place, it sort of makes a lot more sense now. If the foreground is mostly a warm light reflected from the sunset, then the cool greens of the Tiki Lounge separate just fine. Sure it's tons of detail, but I sort of dig that Jungle Madness feel now. Still puzzling, but I think I feel better about it.
LLT~HA! A cannibal menehune chef!
Isle Conch~ Yep, that's a UFO. It still needs work. I'm not happy with it, and sort of moved on to work on other stuff. I'll get back to it and finish it. Or paint it out and put a cloud there.
Tiki fool~ Yes, the old enticing mug trick. I wasn't fully thinking that, but yes it does make sense.
Hey, TCM is showing the old movie "The Invislble Boy" which features Robby the Robot in it! Nice to take a gander at him before I get to painting the Robby the Tiki!

Here's the whole image.

I was trying to get the flowers finished, but didn't quite finish last night. I got like four days. I don't think I'm gonna make it. I gotta call the printer and see if he can squeeze this in and get it phtographed in a shorter amount of time.

Mahalo!

Nothing like a little pressure to get the juice flowing! I've just finished two tight deadline jobs and have another on the go now. The stress can be intense but I really believe (for me anyway) that working on the edge brings out the best!
As for the mug, this is, just, like, my opinion, man, but I really liked the Cthulhu mug - like your "Creature" mug it was something out of the box. The 2nd design is a little generic in comparison, and you already have 3 of your more regulation TikiShark tikis in a row from left to right...a fourth stuck in between them seems like overkill to me. I think the mug really needs to stand out from those other guys....
PS weird is GOOD!

Wow! Those flowers are fantastic! They look like rolling and smoking them would produce some really interesting visions! Maybe we should get Kinny to try that.

Better get cracking on this thing! Time's a wastin'
