WORLD OF THE TIKI GODS - Inky goodness

I was up really late last night. Or really early, depending on where 3:30am fits for you. Insomnia is my friend. It helps when there is a lot of work to do and a short time to do it. BUT that wasn't the case last night, so I just draw and ink. I pulled out the above piece and inked it. Got about 80% done before going to bed. Finished it this morning at 7:30am. I like how it came out but I am not committed to the black with stars background. That's why I did the background in Photoshop. If I color the piece, I will change the black. And my options are still open on the original art. I included the pencil version for comparison and so no one has to search past posts for it. Ink on 11" x 17" Canson Bristol Board.

On a personal note, 16 years ago today, Deena and I got married. So this is an important day for us. I still do cards for her for different occasions. She has stacks of them. Deena gave me the okay to share the card she woke up to this morning. I won't subject all of you to the mushy stuff on the inside though. Deena always reads my posts so: Happy Anniversary Baby! And to everyone else, have a good weekend.
