Well it's been a little while. I was working on another little project which I will post here soon. I got a chance to get back to the painting last night. To be honest I am a little depressed with the outcome so far, I keep thinking how much better the anatomy would be if I just had a real model to work from. I can handle not having an easel, and not the best paints in the world, but oh if I only had a model, the photos I found online just are not cutting it.
Ah well, we make do with what we have right?
Something I think I really need to do for this painting is have a softer focus since it is underwater with hot light sources. This is going to be a challenge for me; I have never successfully done a soft focus painting, all of the ones I have done have always been sharp focus. But then again, what about this painting HASN'T been a new challenge? I also need to find better reference material for the tiki, not happy with it so far... too cartoony. I wanted it to have a little cartoon feel, sort of a Tex Avery "take", but with decently authentic tiki details. I sort of stopped on the tiki for now until I can find a photo to work with.

At least it is progressing. More updates soon.
