I've been focused on the girl (who looks great) but I notice you've been working on the background too, lots of nice depth and lighting on the tiki.

She's very Tiki/Exotica, but she also has that smoky, pulp literature femme fatale mystique. It's coming out really nice, Robert.

Done! Got to get it properly scanned...there's a bit too much green in this pic.

Now I think I'll tackle that Tarzan/Tiki idea I've been messing around with!

Thanks so much TikiDaye! I always enjoy seeing the process of artists' work myself. Other than sharing, the great thing for me is once I upload and look at the post the work looks so different to me that when I am hovering over it painting. That different perspective helps push the work in a better direction I believe.

Anyway thanks again! Hope you're enjoying the Tikilandia book!

In the very early stages of a Tarzan/Tiki painting. Still not quite sure what type of Tiki to paint. I'm leaning strongly towards a Maori Tiki. I know Tarzan resides in Africa....but he did travel to Baltimore so maybe he went by way of New Zealand!
