Tahitian Canibal Carvings/Happy Canibals-

a tribute of sorts to Don the Beachcombers

Cool stuff! Tiki, tattoos and monkeys! We needed an airbrush artist in here! I dig your tiki action! Whew, that first painting... is it hot in here or what! Or is that me reading into the art. Speaking of hot... FIRE! always remember that if you are depicting a light source in your painting, it has to the lightest/brightest thing in the scene. (I read that in a Tim Hildebrant book and it helped me) I really really like the Head of MU. I'm so into sea gods and tiki mythology and horror coming together in juicy illos! Fantastic!
And the new cannibal piece is beautiful. NICE shading on the bamboo! Very dimensional. But, are you like using photos of your dog for reference scrap to paint the tikis?
Super stuff! More please!

I really like this one with the 3 guys on the shelf. The bamboo looks like you could reach out and touch it.

thanks a lot kc and hewey! those pics aren't very good, i think my photo nonskills are worsening. daylight is key i think in shooting 2-d art.
TikiShark- man, thanks a lot for the lightsource advise. i've never thought of it quite on that level. taking that in and looking back at them, it seems obvious. right-on! thanks.

so here are some pics of one i did last week for a little gallery show in cal.
any time i had to work on it wasn't enough to shoot progress pics. sorry for that.
it's on a cabinet door, which is what the theme of the show is(doors).
it is a towel rack for the bar or bath. only titled as 'door to paradise'-"towel rack". thanks for looking.







and here is a shot of the bigger one when last i worked on it. i'll be back on it during the weekend.

Nice work...You just cook these out so fast! Do you just pencil it in and layer with the airbrush or do you just go for it? Share some o dat magic!
The door one is OOOOOOLALA!
It's great how you can go from dark and terrifying to busy and loud and native to a gentle quiet seashore with lightly laughing wahines....Great! Your paintings speak!

Wowzers, that is some good stuff to feed the ol eyeballs! I am a long time fan of the airbrush style and you got it down. I dig your natives and the Wahines. The tikis need no comments because thier coolness speaks for itself. I am lookin' forward to seein' more of the goods you are treatin' us too.

little lost tiki- thanks a lot, man. and thanks for the editing tip.-i always start with a sketch of some kind, either directly on the piece or shot on with a projector.the door was traced on with carbon paper. i wish i could crank them out.doesn't feel like i can. priorities,right? yea, then just layer air and paintbrush. right-on for your close observances-thanks, you make the range sound vast.
Chongolio thank you. i feel like my airbrush skills are just coming around. i own many, but still do almost all of it with a single-action paache. starting to work back into the duels,though. sometime soon, anyway. more on the three cannibals soon. thanks again.
Hawaiiansnowball- thanks man. that first hump after not producing for a while is always the hardest.good luck and show us something soon.
