The Call of Cthulhula - part two

I pondered the painting and figured the island in the background wouldn't work stretched across the painting, so I panicked and slapped down loads of dark paint so i could add foliage and tikis in the midground.

more dark paint in the foreboding sky.

A lot done to the painting, lots of monotone figures and then I attacked the portrait sorting out the face, making the shirt work and getting the hat right.
To complete the midground i went through the "Book of the Tiki" and nicked bits from dozens of menus and album covers, pretty much a painting exorcise rather than a unique work of art.
