Critiques would be really loved!!
Only took 7 hours! It's nice when a picture goes quickly, but it makes me worry I'm doing something wrong.....

Pencil sketch from observation while I was in Hawaii + PS colors from imagination (and obligatory animu kid added in)

subtly reminds me of the Lilo and Stitch coloring style of Chris Sanders (but not so vibrant or stylized). It feels in a way more antique, like vintage Pan Am ads.
So here's a challenge. looking at old Pan Am travel posters and Lilo and Stitch watercolor "art of" work, make a "poster" that combines evoking the antique feel but of an exotic and unexpected subject, like, I don't know, Pele the goddess of volcanos reaching up to snatch a Pan Am clipper plane before it leaves the page, or some Tiki- exotica jungle girl surrounded by tiki warriors but at first it looks like a beach scene at night, or how the whole beach cliff and waterfall actually resembles a woman lounging on the beach looking at the plane.
All your work is very complex, scenic, perspective and compositional- show me what or who lives in that setting using those beautiful strengths!

I really love your use of colour!
The only thing I would suggest would be to sharply define the things that you want the viewer to focus on more? I like the sketchy quality but I think it would be nice if you could emphasis points of interest using that method?
Keep up the great work. 8D
