Happy Tiki Fall
A fall tiki for September enjoys a sunset in the latest artwork from Steve’s Sketchbook.
If you are keeping score, yes, I just posted a new tiki last month. And now, here is another tiki for this month. Is this signaling the start of the Tiki of the Month Club? Maybe so!
While last month’s tiki definitely had a summer feel to him, I wanted this one to be just a little more about fall. So I chose some autumn-themed colors, especially for the background. Or, the background could be a generic evening sunset if you choose to look at it that way. Sunset colors often have autumn tones.
The nice thing about drawing things like tikis is that no one can really say whether they are right or wrong. By its very definition, a tiki is art. And art can be however the artist chooses for it to be. So if the artist says this is how a fall tiki might look, then there you have it. Of course, this would not be the only right way. But it isn’t a wrong way.
I think that is why I like these tiki drawings. They can be whatever I can come up with, limited only by my imagination. Which is admittedly rather limited. But still, it is fun to see what I can come up with.
So yes, I am fairly certain that you will see more of these guys. I actually already have an idea for the next one, although I have not yet started on it. But I think it will be seasonally appropriate. Which brings up ideas for even more in the future, too.
But above all pursue his kingdom and righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. So then, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Today has enough trouble of its own. - Matthew 6:33-34
About the Artwork
No need to adjust your monitor or to think that you spilled something on your phone! I intentionally gave this one a slight grunge kind of look to it. If that is even the right word. I did not want it to look too clean. So I added a layer to give it some texture. Sometimes, digital artwork can look quite smooth and clean. That can be a good thing if that is what you are going for. But sometimes, it needs a little more texture to it. So that’s what I did here. It is all a matter of personal preference, I suppose.
Watch for more tikis coming soon!
