I like the number of steps you're shooting, it really gives a feel of seeing the whole process. Nice colors, too.

Thanks, I'm learning a lot myself about my process of painting by doing these pics. One of my favorite things about this forum is that you can see the paintings in progress & see how they ended up so awesome.

I'm flying to Vegas tomorrow to attend the Roller Derby convention. They Have a Black & Blue Ball every year. So I found this long, blue Cedric the Entertainer style jacket and Covered it with tikis & skulls. I also got a blue fez to go along with it. I'll post more pictures when I get back but here are a few of the coat.

Here's a couple of pics from the Las Vegas Roller Con.





And of course, I had to pay a visit to Trader Vic's

That jacket came out awesome. I really dig the skulls. It is the best tiki thing you have done. The monochromatic (or bichromatic?) style really works for you. I think your shading skills get lost in the full color paintings. You should find another jacket at the goodwill and cut a square for a canvas.
