Okay the title needs work but I think the picture turned out pretty decent.



What do you guys think? Too violent? Too much fire? Not enough fire? Heeds a monkey?

I love it! Colors are vibrant, brah! Dunno about the monkey. He'd be toast!

I agree with Rodeo. One of your best yet. Fire is a terrific addition to any tiki room.

What an action scene! I don't think Pele's being too benevolent though. I really like the prismatic inlay on the tiki's forehead. Yes, it's outstanding and definitely worthy of prints.

I like the warmth. It is reminescent of an ancient and magical time. Youv'e captured the spirit of Tiki repeatedly. Love your works.

I think it looks great, like Hell on earth, which is what it is. It will definately warm up the chilly nghts and make for a warm cozy tiki bar.I agree, it could go on my wall any time.
Another winner from Raffertiki!!

Great looking print. But I think there can never be too much fire.

The islander's became content with thier good fortune, fine inlaid tikis, and well you know, their whole paradise lifestyle. They became slothful and unmotivated. Pele looked down on them with pity, and decided to give them back their motivation.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Thanks everyone for your input. i'm glad that I'm not alone in my fixation of fire.

Hewey, the "prismatic effect" ties this to a previous work I did called Tiki Ruins. This one is actually a prequel though. I expect there to be a pre-prequel to round out this series.

Oh, and to PapeTT, I agree and think I'll spare the monkey.

You can't have too much tiki violence and fire. Well, maybe in theory you could have too much tiki violence, but never enough fire! I don't heed monkeys because usually their advice is unsound.

Great piece!

Hey, Raffertiki, that really is one of your best I'd say too. The fire looks intense and severe, which is what it should look like - Very cool...
