Tiki Concepts

My next project for fun (and profit maybe) will be series of painting with south pacific/island girl/tiki themes. Posted here are three ideas I am developing. The painting will be done in acrylic on 12" wide by 48" tall stretched canvas. I plan to make these very rich in color. Very bold. Should be fun. I just need to get a final design done and then find time in my schedule to paint them. Piece of cake. :) These drawings were done in color pencil and ink on copy paper.

Hey, is there such a thing as a female Tiki?
