Hey, thanks for the advice guys. Heres how it looks so far. You were right Aaron about not wanting to lose the eye profile. Now back to sanding.

Nice choice! The eyes look great. This will be a pretty unique design.

Thanks guys for the kind words
I decided to paint the insides of the eyes red. It really makes them show at a distance. I am going to sand and and then restain one more time then on with the varnish. In the meantime I started #5

Great eyeballs-o-fire, nice job on the tiki peepers. The whole thing looks pretty killer. Next time you have your camera out Can you get a shot similar to the one you took before the stain. I would like to see a close up of the painted eyes and a little more profile if you have the time and gumption that is.
Thanks for the post and pics,

Chongolio

My first log. You folks are so artistic and this stuff is hard. How'd I do? Just glad to have the spirit in the yard. Only 24 more to go before I can get more.

Hi McTiki,

Number 1: I'm sure your intentions are right on, but you really should start your own new string with your pics. Folks will be glad to jump in and help you out. That way your responses won't be all mixed up with RT's.

Number 2: Your images are not gonna work for most people with this link. Here's a link to how to get your images imbeded properly here at TC:

http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/faq.php#embed

I'd really like to see your first Tiki, So start a new string, ask all of the right questions, and keep posting as you go.

Good Luck!

A-A

WE NOW RETURN TO RT's FLAMING TIKI GOD...

Hey Rodeo,

Nice work with number 4! I quite like the eyes. It does give it unique character.
Also, number 5 looks very promising...a full body cannibal tiki! I love the cannibals... (I very much wanna make a cannibal soon too!).

I'm just reading posts to try to get a feel for this new community. I wanted to address something that was said about starting out copying and then establishing a style.

I've been making tiki mugs for two years now. When I first started out, all I had was the Book of Tiki to go on. I took elements of tikis, went to the sketch pad, and added my own style.

After two years, I can no longer see other's work in my own. I have also gotten a feel for the type of nose I like to draw, the look I want to see in the eyes, and what mouths will "speak" to me.

I'm in agreement about respect for other artists, though. It's really hard to "copy" other artists, even out of respect or training, as it just feels so WRONG. Also, there's the challenge to add a fresh angle to the art form.

I love what I do, because not too many people handbuild ceramics anymore, and I can get personal with each new personality I create. I keep the original of every piece I made, and find myself talking to them (yes I AM crazy) as I attempt to make duplicates! My agent thinks I'm a nut, but it keeps my work real.

In this world of copyright law being violated at every step, it's nice to see the respect for artisans on the internet. It brings a tear to my eye.

Good luck with the carving. Can't wait to see how the next ones turn out. (I tried carving plaster once - ONCE - and don't think I'll be doing that again! Think I'll stick with clay!)

It gives new meaning to "The fire in his eyes..." Looks good, can't wait to see more.

Well, I got a little bored tonight and heres the results. I have a even greater respect for benzart and tikitony for thier small carvings. That is a hotwheels for size comparison. Or it could be one giant tiki.

No really it's all your fault, If you never said the kind things you do . I never would have gotten so hooked on this . Oh sure i take some of the blame. But my garage is getting full and the 10x20 shed in our yard is stocked full.

Thanks to everyone for their encouragment , Its trully the most fun I have had in a long time.
