Paul, those pieces are great! That After Hours one is my favorite. I really like the way you use the bright/neon colors. Great job!

And mahalos for takin' a peek!

Regarding prints of my work...

I've been experimenting. And while I can't yet afford to do lithos or giclees, I've been getting surprisingly good results with first doing a CMYK conversion on Photoshop and then doing a high-end laser print on glossy card stock.

I think folks should be pretty okay with that. And, of course, I'll charge accordingly -- i.e., NOT what a litho or giclee would bring.

Cheers!

Lickatiki! Have mercy!!! I need a cold shower

I play with graphics a bit (nothing like this) and I too prefer Paintshop Pro (I think I have version 5 or 6), much better than Photo Shop. I'm sure you know, but the reason that the new versions of Paintshop are jacked up is because they sold out to Corel

KREEPYTIKI~
I was all about to blather on about how an artist of your talent should turn away from the mouse and pick up the brush, but then looking at how good your last e-LICK-tronic painting is, well.. just keep making da' art! X-cellent lickin!

Thanks for your post, Tiki Shark! VERY appreciated!

And here's a revised version of "Lickatiki" in which I brought out the features of my tiki a lot more and made a few other barely noticeable alterations as well.





Some friends and I are going to be using this image on some business cards for a project we have in development, and the original tiki just doesn't read well when it's reduced down to that small a size.

What do YOU folks think? I'm kinda split on which version I like best.

I like the highlighted tiki better. The only way it could get any better now was if she was twins!!!

Hey MadDog!

Far out! Talk about a "double-header"!

Weirdly, I've used that mirror technique before on a few of my other figure and head-study pieces, but hadn't thought of doing it with this one. Anyway, your "twin" idea is pretty damn koolamundo! And so here's my own, further developed version...



And if you don't mind, I'd like to "appropriate" the concept for possible use in my upcoming project (which I can't talk about just yet). After all, the original artwork IS mine!

Also, after some consideration, I've come to agree with you about the highlighted version --the other one just gets too overshadowed by the girl's half of the painting.


Cheers and Mahalos!

Castaway Clemens

By all means . Your refined version is much better than my 5 minute massacre of your artwork
