Thanks a lot TSA! Once again, I am humbled! I think that working backgrounds in animation for many years has affected my palette to an extent. And just because I just can't let things go, here is another update of my "Mystery Island" painting! I really need to walk away from this one and revisit it later! I'm like fricken' George Lucas! I can't keep my hands off my older pieces! I'm always tweaking or fixing something! The digital age is a blessing and a curse! haha!

I like it! ALOT! The smoke on the front volcano looks much more realistic now. Now try the one on the right. Maybe you could use a less heavy spray brush or maybe just change the weight of it.

Thanks tikitammy! This piece has evolved quite a bit and I'm sure it will keep on taking me down a road of discovery!
CHONGOLIO! If not but for your Coconut Wired and Vegas Vic's Tiki Lounge, I would not be so inspired in my late night creative sessions! Gets me in an exotica mood that helps transport me to these places! Your art has been most ripping Chongo bruddah! Here's an update of one I posted recently but felt it really lacked some visual interest so I had to have another go at it! I'll be adding some flora as well.

Luv'n the work SP. Your looser style works great. I always admire those who can capture the essence of an image with everything that need to be said and leaves the rest of the story to the imagination. An ability I have yet to arrive at. Great lighting , as said prior. and Lee Marvin, well there there's no denying the dude's credentials. 'The ultimate mans man' especially in those old war movies. nice work , More power to ya.

Then may I suggest to finish this painting you take it to the next stage, I think Tiki Shark Art is on the right ground when they said..

Have a look at this August Holland Print that was recently sold on ebay
HERE and then this DIY project HEREand i think you can work out how you can finish that image.

Limey! Coming from a master such as yourself, I am filled with gratitude! I love to work quickly and I dig it when the paint strokes do the work for me! I find that a quick approach works best for me...almost a zen "first thought, best thought" approach. It is evident in the piece that is not working as well as I'd like: the overworked mysterious island painting. I was telling Kirby that it is now really a dropcloth for ideas and a testing ground for compostional concepts and rendering techniques, so I am learning much more about how I want to my pieces to speak for me! Thanks again!
Atomictonytiki: thanks for the reference! That is an awesome piece and I'm glad you relate it with my style! Not sure if will help me to wrap things up or open a whole new can of inspirational artistic worms! (I'm hoping for the latter!)

That's a fine piece! I'm especially into the way you painted the sky there. It's all top notch, but the look of the sky is something I really admire. It really has a retro feel to it.... Very cool!

Hey Sam! Thanks! I really dig the illustation style of the period so I'm glad it's reflecting here and there in my stuff! Glad you like!
