Okay... time to try something new and different. I've been playing around with adding dimensionality to some pieces - still painting, but getting away from the standard flat surface.I thought this would be a good time to try it on something tiki.
Here's the image I've worked up so far:

I'll keep posting as the piece progresses.
Wish me luck!

Okay, nearly finished....
Haven't decided whether to add the background disks yet, or just leave it like it is (the black square is just for the pictures).

Looking good! Is that foam board or something different? I'd add the disks (even the square works), seems to ground the piece better.

I saw the original image & thought, "kinda neat", but the finished product is just plain WOW! Nice work.

That is pretty cool. What kind of material are you using? I've been thinking of doing something similar with scrap sentra foam board from work.

Maybe you should make a black piece for the back that is cut kindof like the leaves. Kindof a star burst, but uneven and droopy, would add a solid backdrop, but also make it look like he's in a dense jungle.

Thanks for the encouragement, all!
I'll play around with a backing - see what works best.

Nice job, Mike! I love it! Adding the depth really does a lot for the piece! I would agree with the others; some sort of background would help define the space. Really cool!
