Robb will be pleased to have inspired yet another artist!
That boy is on FIRE!

is that black gesso or just black acrylic paint as a base you're using?
I found the results with black rattlecan or black gesso to work a lot better
the rattlecan lays down smoother than the acrylic and still doesn't soak up the colors-they just lay on top...FLAT!
but the black gesso soaks the paint up a bit in the most delicious way!

Anyways...gotta get back to work!
Can't wait to see the animation someday!

I've been using black acrylic. I feel it worked better on canvas than on the wood I am now using! Gotta go buy some black gesso!

Oh and as to Robb, I messaged him personally when I completed THE GREETER (pic below) I was very happy with this painting and felt a lot of gratitude toward Robb and his work!

I think it's a platform to sacrifice poodles and small children to Moe

Looks great Robert!

And thanks Mike! But there will be no sacrifices made on Tiki Tower Island!

After a brief pause for an impressionistic Super Hero painting (which can be seen at www.zerostreet.com ) I'm back on The Sentinel!

Thanks Chris! I'm enjoying working on it! I imagine one of your favorite elements are the float lights? I am currently trying to make my own for to use as decor at the Hukilau in my Tiki Tower tent! MadDogMike gave me some pointers and links to help me along....I may post pics soon!

Yep! I love the lights, but the whole piece just talks to me. Good luck with your project lights, MDM always gives
great tips. If I had a sixteenth of the talent you two have I might just make something worth showing on TC.

I'll be watching for your next "Sentinel" update!

Thanks Chris! Here's the latest, I'm having a hard time photographing this well in the low light of my studio.

Zero, I love your new painting. I love the darkness.
If I may add a little comment, maybe try to keep some of the rawness/darkness
of your first pic alive. In my opinion you have already nailed it. Great work!

I'm extra digging The Sentinel. There's a weighty quality to the hut, nice perspective on it, and the whole setting is something I've never seen - always a big plus!

The weighty feeling the hut has is what really intrigues me, it gives the whole thing more "thereness", one of the keys goals of most artists, realists or not. I think that's what pulls people in when they see it, part of their brains registers the object as real.

Thanks MP, I certainly agree with what you're saying and in the coming days will be making the Tiki more "high contrast" by adding in more darkness. When working from black I tend to go back and forth adding light and darkness.

Robb, thanks so much for the comment! I am especially happy with the hut. Perspective is not my strongest skill, I sometimes get a bit lazy checking it, but this look right to me moment I sketched it! Got lucky I guess! And as I've said before, your work has directly inspired these faux black velvet styled paintings!
