Well, you're in luck because I've got several ideas Without any New-fangled gadgets that could be taken as period related stuff, and one I jsut an idea for was Pirate based. Just gotta get the others outta my system before I go to work on them. The next piece I jsut started today has a BUNCH of Tiki mugs in it though.....for all you Mug lovers out there. It's gonna be fun. Lookin' forward to workin on it.

Unfortunately I see a lot of threads in the non-carving side of creating that don't seem to get many responses, even though they are chock-full of cool stuff like this one. Maybe more info in your title may get more feedback as I know there are plenty of comics fans on TC, myself included.
Anyway, I really like these vignettes and would like to see more. My favourite is the same as hewey's...the style of the tiki, the composition and the character all merge seamlessly to create a mood.

Yeah, that's one of my favorites too. Took me while to do it, but once everything was said and done, it turned out better than I ever planned. Thank god for Photo references.

Well, I have been trying to get these colored....if you're up to the task. Looking to get these on T-shirts for my CafePress store, but so far, all my colorist buddy's are busy with other stuff.

Let me know....I'd love to see what'cha can do, if you're interested.

These are all very cool, my own personal fave is the maiden standing before the
throng of leering tikis. Quite wonderful stuff and we might also like to view actual
photos of the models.

Why thank you. That one actually took me several months to do too. The original idea was to have her walking up to an alter with one of those little guys atop standing with a knife, ready for the sacrifice and a Large Snake like tiki statue behind the alter...like somehting outta Indiana Jones. Didn't work out though. This is the result of the 3rd attempt to come up with a working background for it. The torches themselves were one of the last things I did on it, because I wasn't too sure of what I wanted them to look like. Tried this design, and it worked. If you look really close on the right side of her with the other little guys there, you'll see Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Ace Frehley and Peter Chris Masks. As well and Mac Tonite, and Batman thrown in there.
My next one is her laying on a nech with Tiki mugs around her. Should prove fun. I'll post it up when I'm done.

As far as the Models go....well, I actually got the poses from a little Swimsuit calendar from SI. Tweaked some details here and there to make it my own, but it's the reference I've been using for this project.

Here ya go guys. The latest piece in my never ending quest to bring the TIKI to comics. Must admit that this piece came about from seeing all the AWESOME Mugs most of you folks post up that you've done. So this is kinda my way of saying "Thanks" for the inspiration.


Thanks guys. Enjoy

That last piece is by far the best yet. Good places for eye to rest, good composition, great drawing, and believable space. Too cool! Nice rework going on above also.
