Nice head Kinny...hard to tell it's shrunken though, it looks like a normal size head. You should paint something next to it, like a quarter or something , for comparison.

Yeah, I never went to art class.

Thank you so much for hosting the wife and I at the LLT Studio. So many wonders my mind is still reeling! I was a much needed time of relaxation in a hectic day

Thanks Toe!
i'll be sure to leave a hollow comment on your thread sometime soon!

Jason-it's shrunken! Those leaves in the background are from a Bonsai tree!

Brad TikiShark!
Dude! la Luz! Friday! YAY!
I'll sew my eyes shut AFTER the exhibition!

mad Doggy!
It was sooo nice of you and the wifey to visit the BatCave last Friday!
Come by anytime!

OOOOKAY!
IF YOU DIDN'T KNOW BY NOW...
There's now a Gallery Section for all us arteests to post our finished work,
so if you just want an art fix....go there!
If you'd like to ask me arty questions or see some step-by-steps on paintings and whatnots
then THIS is the place to check in!

First How-To....
We're gonna learn how to make a "Cannibal's Treat" drawing!
YAY!

First,we quickly sketch a concept that says "HEY! Make me into something!"


Next,grab some watercolor paper
get it wet
brush ink all over it
roughly making a blobby copy of the sketchbook piece...


here it is reeeeal close!


After that dries...
grab a fineline sharpie and start drawing the picture onto the ink
loosely following the shapes underneath..
(Here's your chance to dial in the drawing...)


Close-ups..




Next step is to grab a gray or neutral tone of ink
to further develop the shadows
and intensify the lighting...


Close-ups!


After THAT...
grab a white colored pencil and fill in the skulls/fingernails/teeth
and anything else that needs a white fill or hi-light....
THEN grab a thicker sharpie and just go over the outlines of the elements
keeping the finer lines to stand on their own....

it should look like this...


and here it is finished!


Hope you enjoyed this first of many tutorials
your questions,if not too silly,will be answered to the fullest of my ability...
Mahalos!

Kinny, if you're going to run an art school you should be more selective who you pick as students!

When I see something that says "tutorial", I have to try it. I didn't have any ink but I had some cheap watercolor pencils from WalMart. So I gave it a shot


Initial background colors


"Finished" piece. I didn't have a very good white pencil for highlights. As soon as I paint the other 999 I can reserve a booth at Oasis!

All kidding aside, great tutorial Ken - I think I actually learned a thing or two As in any endeavor - tools and planning are key.

Kenny!
That's too funny!!!!
You da best!!!!

I remember reading "How To Draw the Marvel Way" when I was a kid.
Step 1.) They'd show the basic shapes done in pencil... an oval, and a circle.
Step 2.) Then the next step was this beautiful penciled in Batman....
.... and I was like all what the?!?!?! How did you know how to draw the ears and the mask!!!

Hey, when I'm on da mainland, I'm bringing your phone number with me, I got all this crazy driving up and down the So Cal coast to do for business with Body glove and other surf brand day-job stuff. Bit Abbas and I are gonna call you if we ever get close to Orange so we can say hi... if that's cool and time works out.

Maybe I can see you Friday night? Don't know all who is gonna be there... but BIG ALOHA TO YOU, if I do or don't see you!!!

Brad~

Hello! Back with another tutorial/step-by-stepper to show y'all how it's done...

Had a great week last week!
mp,upon his acceptance into the laLuz show
came on down to visit us SoCal folks,taking a whirlwind tour of the area
and even spending a few days and eves over at the STUDIO OF SOLITUDE!

Here's empee giving the Ruzic a Fonzie!

and what a champ! He cleaned up after himself
sweeping and whatnot....what a guy!

Also JOY of JOYS....got a visit from the Travellin One known as Jonesy!
Lookin Good!

and at the la Luz show got a dose of JONESY,TOE,TIKISHARK,EMPEE,OCEANOTICA,SQUIDS,and TOBUNGMANUEL
JOOOOOY!
REMEMBER,this thread is now a Q&A about art and stuff
as well as a tutorial/step-by-step whenever the gumption takes ahold....
i know it takes the magic out of it
but on the flip side
it allows you to ASTONISH and AMAZE your Friends with your arcane art technique knowledge and skill!

But first....replies!

Jason! it CAN be done Backwards as well!
I'm hoping,that by sharing how certain looks are achieved,how styles are laid down
that a whole new generation of tiki Artists will grab the ring and march ahead
advancing the craft and genre and allowing for everyone to give it a shot!
Would lovelovelove to see a step-by-step from you and Robb!

Hey T-Tonga!
i heard those mini-heads are worse than donut-holes!Plus deep-frying them doesn't help.... and when you tack on the dippin sauce...
well, you can see how they've acquired such prosperous forms!

As you wish Flynny!
These tutorials are NOT designed
to make you feel like your attempts
would only end up in unsatisfactory results..

they are meant to show y'all how some things work
and how some things don't
to show you how it's done...
Some styles are better for others
some techniques might suit you just fine...
It's all about SEEING things
listening to your insides
and how your hand moves
and what medium one uses...
Everyone has a different hand and brain and heart
These tutorials may help someone unlock something
they didn't know they had...
and that would bring a smile to this old artist's heart!
Every artist...EVERY ARTIST has a duty
to inspire others and to teach others
it's not a self-enclosed ME machine
it's a gift to celebrate and share
and bring joy and feelings to others!

Flynny-would love to see your attempts
spilt coffee may be a fantastic medium!

Not bad Mike! You are a fearless adventurer
leaping off into voids that not many would dare!
a true artistic spirit! the PERFECT student
in bravery and enthusiasm
and remember... the more you do
the more you learn
and the more it becomes second nature
and then you're ready for level 10 before you know it!
ROCK oN!
And whenever you lose faith in art
do what i do
look at a DeKooning!

Bradley!
I had that book
totally!
it showed the body broken down into ovals and cylinders and cubes
and then BAM! it's friggin Cappin America!
Comics and Art History Books......ah boyhood!
but no Batman!
it was Spidey and Thor and the invisible girl
batman's DC!
Did they have a DC one too?
i always wished the Submariner and Aquaman would scrap!
Congrats on your la Luz showing and SALES!!!!
yay!
and it was soooo great to see you and Abbas!
we ALL miss you !

Thank you all for the visits and the artchat and the Ohana!
First off... Here's some progress on the journey series
2nd canvas...
the 3rd one has been on my mind lately so keep your peepers peeled...

This is the kind of painting
where a 12-hour jag will often be unnoticeable to the untrained eye
just subtle hue differences,a richness
emphasis of certain elements
and a final enhancing of sorts...


After a long session
i think the torso is finally getting better..


the transparency of the "ghostboat" pops out a bit more...


a little more makeup and hair work...


so that's that for now.....

Now onto our tutorial
Heaven knows you've earned it after wading thru all these word thingies...

Here's a piece entitled "Late Night Walk"
and it's based on some earlier pieces in this vein of
Aztec gylphs (ala Codex Nuttail-sp?)
Posada's Calaveras
and Tiki LLT stylee!

Examples of which i will collect and post in my Gallery thread for you to peruse...
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=35616&forum=21&start=45&47


Here's the sketchbook doodle that inspired this one..


first off
i sketched it out on canvas
with a water-soluble pencil (Aquarelle is a good brand)
and then began just filling in the colors with washes of Cel vinyl
acrylics would work just as well...
i like to work it all watery
letting it dry where it wants to dry ..


close-up!
you can see some of the initial shadowing on here..


After it dries,i wet the tip of a paper towel and wipe off all the pencil lines that are showing....
this is when i often give it a good brush on coat of matte or satin sealant...
i use the LIQUITEX brand..
Test First!
test EVERYTHING FIRST!
even established IDEAS and HISTORICAL ACCOUNTS!
but that's for another day...
seriously,always test your mediums
no use painting for 3-4 hours and have it mussed up...

Next step is the paint pen ..
Decocolor paintpens are great for this,
but BEWARE of "blopping"
if you ever tried paintpens
you'll know what i mean...
i traced out feathers in red on the cape and helmet
red on the red and orange on the yellow...see how that works?
red and orange in the flames
some greens and sand for the torch and palms
then... SEAL IT AGAIN before applying the black!

Here you can see how the red on the capes will soon act as a subtle SHADOW
once the black is applied....



Before i started with the black, i developed the grass and made the shadows of the
black flowers BEFORE applying the black outline...
The black outline should be the last step
if not
you may have to go back over black areas that those other colors overlapped onto!


This is before his Hawaiian calavera Eye Plumeria is finished...
Also note the sky...
purple and blue dots of varying size
with white stars over that when it's dry..


Here's with some blue in tne bone shadows..

Remember about doing black last?
well i had a lot of going back over
but it was worth it
Adjusting for afterthoughts is part of the game....
Here it is finished!
tada!



Pretty basic kids
Acrylic on canvas
seal
apply lighter colors with paintpen
seal
apply black paintpen for final outline
seal
DONE!

Would love to see what you kids can come up with using this technique and medium!
MUTUAL INSPIRATION PACT!

Thanks y'all for visiting!

You mean something like this that my very talented friend Tommy Tejeda did? He is an artist on The Simpsons, but was a character designer for warner Bros. for many years on Batman, Superman, Justice League, etc.
