So, it's been a Long time since I actually posted any Art up here. Been quite busy. Always missing out on the festivities at the Tonga Hut because of my other work. So many Mugs and prints to buy, and so little Money.

But I digress. Here's some stuff I've been working on for quite some time. One of these I posted before, but a different version. So here's my Tiki Madness. Most of these I've inked up already, and will have those scans in later this week.

Enjoy






I'll post some more stuff up as soon as I get them done.

Yeah. The second to last one I posted way back, but had to redo her (twice in fact) to make the Pic work. Posted a few more as well, but I'll repost them when the Inks are finished.

Yeah, the colors will be coming soon. Just have to make copies of the Inks. Won't be doing the colors myself though...being color blind kinda keeps me from doing all that. It's why I stopped painting 11 years ago after high school. When and I can get these colored, I'll post them up here too.

Thanks for the Kind words guys.

Great work Tikiman77!
The girls have that "Witchblade" comic feel to them! Can't wait to see these finished up! Judging from the detail in your drawings,I guess being colorblind allowed to look at forms and textures more! I knew and know 2 colorblind artists who seems to get along quite well with that condition...Have you just tried tonal renderings using just a sepia or gray? Enough blabbin'. Beautiful work and Welcome Back!

Welp, I've thought about doing Grey tones, mostly with Pencil of course, but really haven't had the time to sit down and work on tonal variations using different leads. Saw a Pic last night on Comicartfans.com where someone drew a topless Island girl (blonde of course) with a Lai over most of her breasts, and well designed tiki behind her...kinda sparked the creative juices for me to do something like that...something more Life-like, rather than Comic bookish. Now I just gotta find some reference for something like that.

Here's the latest piece for ya'll to see. It took me quite a while because of some perspective issues. But I'm happy with it. Can't wait to ink it and see it colored.

Some really nice stuff in there Personally I really like this one because there is nothing 'modern' in there - who knows what time this is from? Is she the only survivor from a wrecked trading ship?


Really love to see some period style stuff, like a chick with a vintage pirate pistol and some traditional pacific style tatts - like she's a pirate on the run who was befreinded by an island of locals Or some stuff where instead of those new guns, she has like a warclub like something Basement Kahuna would make!

But ultimately do whatever makes you tick and have fun with it!
