Ah, the beginings of greatness... but I think, from the looks of your studio, you are taking the term "underground art" too seriously. Is that your basement?

No worries, as long as you're doing your art!

Cool composition, makes me feel like a voyeur.... except I'd rather be spying on a bikini-clad wahine.

Hey Tiki Duddy! Looks like you're off to a great start! Your self portrait is incredible! I like your second painting as well... it could be an illustration for a cool children's book!

TD~
Okay, u know I totally support you starting da art. I got nothing but aloha for you. So, please take this as said with sincere aloha.
Here's a tip from an cranky old dog who's made a LOT of art mistakes.

Art tip) When you have light sources in your paintings, the rule is, to make them believable you MUST make them the brightest things in the paintings. Especially fire. I know you're moon is a light source, that's good. But the fire has to be even brighter to have the illusion of real fire. The leaves in the jungle have to come way down in brightness compared to the flames.

I know it's hard to post half finished work in front of the tiki tribe (scares the heck out of an introvert like me, I don't think I could have done it at your age) and I so respect you doing so now.

Okay, I'll get off the soap box now.

Big aloha to you D.
B~

Big help!

here's some updates, worked on it a little bit more last night and this morning so far.




It still looks a bit like a laser,
but that SHOULD change soon.

I didn't know I was supposed to put on a protective sealant on my paintings, till about number 9 or so. I figured, they are plastic. Well, you can. there's the spray on, but I noticed that it can cloud the dark a tad. the art store folks lead me to liquid brush on. You gotta experiment.
