These are men from the Moi tribe in Papua, Indonesia - friends of ours live with these people and have recently presented the Gospel in their language. Cool stuff! More info at www.ntm.org.
The paper is Indonesian wrapping paper...did a little faux stitching around the window (which I cut out with my coluzzle). I trimmed the shields and spears and added some shading and highlighting with Prismacolor pencils. I cut around part of the center guy's hand so it looked like he was holding the spear (he is holding a bow in the real picture). I did some 'faux flourishes' with Art Impressions alphabet stamps...had to use their stamps as this is intended for next month's contest (Going Tribal is the theme).
