Really nice work. I love the chiaroscuro quality of the lighting.

Here's the wrap up:



I added a subtle jungle backdrop.





A few plants and a shell (borrowed from the one at the Mai Kai, but reversed).





Here we go: "PNG Paddlehead".




Thanks everyone for the feedback. It was great to do something not colossal for once. I'm going to possibly do a few of these since the price I'm thinking of is low and wouldn't cover exclusivity.

Rob~
Loved the interview on Quiet Village. Your work in person is amazing. I bow to you, your kung-fu is superior.
And now, I apologize for this...

Aloha~

Tiki Duddy - velvet is radically different, sometimes people can't even get the paint to spread evenly. It's worse when it comes to doing fleshtones, most turn greyish and the different shades you'd normally use tend to look identical.

Brad - you got me, my room actually echoed with laughter!!!!!!!! Now Grog has a new level of Kung Fu to aspire to!

I forgot to include some details:

PNG Paddlehead is 8x10 inches, on velvet mounted to bristol board (heavy art paper), unframed. I don't know if I'll do another, but I'll make each a little different and sign, date, and number each on the back.

It will fit in a standard frame so you can put it on a table, not just the wall, since a frame back with the fold-out leg will secure with the painting in. This'll give more good placement options.

I've been planning on doing this size of painting, which I consider a "sketch", for a while so that I can offer something affordable.

Shit, Robb! It feels like I'm wearing 3-D glasses when I look at that one!
Love love love it! And thanks for thinking of making some smaller, affordable pieces. Maybe even I could own one now!

Tikishark is Correct!
Your KungFu skills are more powerful than ALL of us!
Paddle head turned out POIFECT!
Believe me folks, 8x10 is bigger than you think
and more than enough space to transport
your feeble minds into HamelLand!
Keep it up Robb!
You're the Leetag of the Midwest!
MORE!MORE!MORE!

Big Toe - a full signature can't be had at ANY price because it would dominate such a small painting...I am signing the back completely, though.

LLT - I have no Kung Fu moves...more like Stairmaster moves.
