Wow FinkyD, Love the digipainting, very mysterious. Love the pendant. You have come a Long Long way in a short time. His detail is nice and crisp. great lines and form. Excellent. Don't let the Cherry wood get you down. It will hold super detail but you really have to work for it and it also holds surprising pitfalls as I'm sure you have found. Looks like you solved them all. Nice work.
Whats next??

Here is what I did at work last night (again, please don't tell my boss! ). The curves look a little rough yet, but that's why God created sandpaper. I don't know if it counts as a tiki-bite or not, but when I was cutting out part of his mouth my knife broke and the piece that came off lodged itself into my middle finger's knuckle. I'm hoping to finish this guy by Saturday so I can wear him to Exotica before he ships off to his new home.







Mahalo!

Thanks guys! I don't know why, I just like to start with the teeth. Perhaps I should go to dental school! I'm a little scared of cherry wood now, I think I use a bit too much muscle for it. It seemed very brittle. This one is mahogany again. I was going to do a zebra wood one, but since I want to get this one out quickly I wanted to go with a wood I had some experience with.

Thanks for looking!

Nice start Finkdaddy . I dont know why but I always end up starting with the mouth too. It almost determines the rest of the carving.

Cant wait to see more..

Lookin Good Finker, yo dolt. That wasn't a bite when you ended up impaled on your knife point, That WAS A STAB11 Be Careful, when they stab you it means they Hate you so you better be careful and carve him right or he'll stab you again, for Real this time. That was just a warning shot.
I like the way this guy is turning out.
(psst, ,,dont trust him)
