Looks great Conga. My only suggestion would be to go deeper with your detail. I am a big fan of te smaller stuff and would really enjoy seeing your unique creations smaller. Keep them coming!!

thanks GMan and A-Station. It was fun doing a little one that I could wrap up in
a day...but I'm taking your advice Aloha and re-facing him to a more appropriate
"conga-style." Also the finish came out a little too reddish so I am doing all
kinda stuff to make it look like it was pulled out of a 200 year old pirate chest.
Nice'n' dirty and gritty.

Many thanks Ben and Johnny...
Ben I was actually inspired by seeing all the cool stuff that GMan is doing, and
just decided to give it a try. I love the quick-gratification of whipping through
the basic cuts in short order and seeing things develop rapidly. I am
really happy with the figure (body) but I am still reworking the face to give it more
character.
Johnny I do have a lot of big wood still in my garage, but my source also dropped over
several full rounds that are only 12-18 inches high. I thought it was time to use a
bit of that stuff and chopped it into usable chunks for small carvings.
I plan on taking a couple of the more exotic Conga pieces and doing some small versions
of them.
I am also re-working the finish on this, which looks red in the photos but is actually
dark brown.

Still digging I see? You must be getting close to finding him? He looks wild. This guy is teasing you. Dig here, chip me there....no, more. He's a fickle bugger.

Thanks for sharing Conga.

Thanks for stopping by Johnny and GMan.
It's taken a loooong time to develop a "kinship" with this piece of wood, and I must admit
that I was puzzled for most of that time. This is completely different from what I originally
intended but it is showing the influence of countless hours of carving research, it's a little
bit of a lot of stuff. I am happy to say that I am done with the removal of large bits of
wood, just a lot of detail work to be done now, but I am getting happy enough that I am
re-energized. Funny I used that term, if all else fails I will call him the "Energizer Bunny
Tiki."
If I have a cocktail or two and squint I can see a little Andres Bumatay in the eyes,
a bit of Milan Guanko in the mouth and body, and even a little Witco from the side.
You two guys are among the biggest supporters of my off-beat exotic chizzlin...and I
appreciate it.

Conga, you are really getting your finishes sweet and clean and really smooth. You must be going through a lot of sandpaper and patience. His "Energizer Bunny" moniker must have some cool stories. I see lots of Different detail for you and that's great.
Where you gonna be in a couple weeks?

Lookin Great Conga. Looks like he is trying to decide which ride to take to work today. He is leaning toward the Caddy I think. Love when the v-liner finds its way into your hands, it really dresses op the old man. Excellent Stuff, Whats next?
