Looks a LOT better! Wonderful. I have no room to talk really, drawing hands is the single most difficult thing for me to do...they drive me apeshit. My "Mrs Stacked Man" painting I re-painted one of her hands five times and am still not happy with it.

Side note... do monkeys have 4 or 5 fingers? No, I am serious I really am not sure. If it is 5 he looks like he is missing a finger? Or are my eyes deceiving me?

EDIT: never mind I see the pinky now, I had to squint my moniter is kind of dark sometimes. I guess the answer would be 5.

So bitchin'! Koshi is cool as a cucumber in the midst of a wicked storm. (phrase borrowed from Robb H )

Hi zerostreet. As I looked from step to step I saw a bag at the base of the terrific tiki appear. It made me wonder is it his? Was he on a journey and now has stopped to contemplate the horrific storm on the horizon. I can feel the wind on his face, that's how good this painting is. Love it, Wendy

Thanks so much Wendy!

That's basically it! Right near the end of painting I thought that adding a bag or backpack at the Tiki's base would further add to the feeling that this chimp purposely stopped and climbed up the Tiki just to "enjoy" this storm. In my opinion, this just adds to the calm within the chimp and to the assurance he has that all will be fine!

Wendy, I need to train my eye to be more observant - I was so focused on Koshi and the storm that I missed the bag. And, yes Robert, everything will be fine

WOW! Wonderful! I love the warm glow of light on him, and then having the storm be all darker hues of blue to bring the warm colors forwards. Nice touch with the bag/backpack; tells the story in greater depth and adds psychology to the character.

Working on a non-Tiki painting of Philip K Dick, but got a image in my head last night and just had to get the sketch out. This will be monochrome, just black and moonlight!
