MaukaHale hello Colorado, has it stopped snowing?

TU only 12 days! Horrors, no aliens, no deadlines!

ZeroTiki Neigh!

TikiAno he's looking at something. I don't know what. He's happy you think he looks good. I told him to see a dentist.
Is it Hot Chocolate time?

MadDogMike did you see your do not disturb sign?

=========================================================

Just a couple more steps completed for the Alien Tiki Swap.

I covered the sky with stars. I used a special ceramics paint that sparkles as you walk by. This makes the painting seem alive.


I also added a small earth in the background.


This is a really fun swap. Wendy

Wendy,

The high today will be 97 and it will reach 100 by Tuesday. The temperatures still won't stop me from playing ice hockey twice a week.

Nice touch with the ceramic paint for the stars. You have created a piece of art that exercises the mind by asking the question, "What is happening in this picture?"

What did you use to draw The Goof on the canvas, a pen or pencil? I'm new to acrylic painting. Someone told me that if you use pencil it can bleed into the paint.

MaukaHale gosh I've never had a problem with a pencil but this painting and most others that I've done I've used a permanent felt pen marker. It makes doing a copy of an original so much easier. I once did Elvis and his nose was too long. I had to start over. That is when I started using photos for any copies. Doing your own thing is super easy doing a copy and getting the proportions right is really hard.

How did you do it CY?

Cheers, Wendy

Wendy my background in art comes from redrawing rough pencil sketches done by super artists into inked finals that I then added colors to. I learned so much from a variety of styles that obviously influence me to this day, but my own style went completely off the rails when I tired of doing others' work. I really wanted this piece to closely resemble the original and am happy with George but the rest are a bit off. (Don't tell anyone) I downloaded a very blurry-bad copy from the internet and just replaced Astro with a moai and added Hawaiian props. Here is the framed and finished product ready to ship or hand deliver to Tiki Oasis.

CY it looks perfect to me and I watched all those cartoons. Good job. More and more I'm sad to miss Tiki Oasis and all my tiki buddies. Wendy

Tu,

Thank you for running the swap. It's been a fun endeavor for me. My category is actually "almost finished." I'll have it finished this weekend. I haven't posted a picture of the finished art yet.

Awesome swap

Near disaster.
So I decided to put a coat of clear gloss on the Goof alien project,
for some reason the gloss did not like the white paint and turned it brown.

Also the type of wood I used for the alien must not like gloss either and came out horrible.

Sanded the gloss off the whitehat and repainted it.
Sanded the gloss off the alien and restain him grey.
Gloss left on the lower half of da Goof.
Done!!!!!!!!

Excellent hang10tiki. He's really cute and so is the little grey alien. Glitches make us better artists, good job of overcoming the obstacles. Wendy
