I'm always experimenting on stylizing objects. This was my take on palm trees.

So you want the sundown 15 minutes later. With digital you just multiply 2 layers together. It doesn't just darken the image, it darkens the colors, giving a more natural look.

OK, folks this is not at all tiki, but I wanted to illustrate to anyone who was thinking of trying Ipad or computer painting that a good online community can really help a person get better. As I have said I am not much more than a so so cartoonist, but by working this last 6 months and producing one image a day and following online tutorials, I have greatly improved. This image was a feature image on the SketchClub website today. A few images a day are featured. Hundreds are uploaded everyday ...... I'm sorry it is no tiki, but the Dude is cool too.





For sure .... THE DUDE ABIDES

I wish I was a talented painter, but I am not. The images I produce are not meant to be great art. What I make are designs, illustrations, patterns, and humorous cartoons. I finds lot of uses for them. This next section goes away from tiki sculptures (I will soon get back to that) and more into pattern making. This method might inspire folks to give this simple technique a try .....

Now this is one of the coolest things about digital brushes. You can take a fairly high resolution image and turn it into a rubber stamp brush. This is a very simple tiki shield design I created myself.

So what is this all good for? Add some color and texture and stamps and you end up with a nice pattern.

I tiled the pattern and used it for a background. I took the first tiki and colored the stamp brush in a very contrasting color. I think it makes a nice combo.
