Sorry this one is taking so long. It's been crazy busy here, and to tell the truth, the head dress has had me stumped. I have some touching up to do on him to make all the lines even, then all I need to do is some finish sanding so I can put on the stain and stuff.







Mahalo!

sure doesn't show it!

Looks like he was late to work, jumped out of the shower & had to air dry with his head out the car window. Very stylized, I really love your work.

Thanks everyone for the kind words, it's what keeps me doing it, as slow as it may be. The head dress did stump me for a while. I believe I will try and map out things a bit ahead of time from now on.

Here is another picture called "Night of Discovery". My next chore is to try and map out and texture a detailed 'carved' tiki. That will take a bit of work, since I'm just learning my new software and anything more than a basic shape will take me forever. But hey, it's time to step up and aim high.

Cool piece of art dude. Hot looking broad too. Nice work.

The sunset was my fave of your digi-art. But geez, look at the improvement over your earlier stuff - way to go!

I know it's been forever since I could work on this guy. He's the first one I've done in cherry wood. I wasn't prepared for how brittle it would be, next time I'll be more careful. He still needs some poly. Sorry for the blurry pics, I was trying something new and I rushed through it.









Mahalo everyone!
