It's good to see the roughouts, for me at least that's when a lot of the design and technical problem solving occurs. It looks like you start out with a basic idea and make a lot of your design decisions as you go? I think working instinctively is underrated these days.

Thanks much Ben...Johnny and Paipo...I freely admit that there isn't much here yet...or at
least not much to get excited about. But I assure you I won't quit digging until I get a little
enthused.
Paipo...you are right...I delve into resource material until I get a basic concept...sketch it
to remind me where I was originally headed...and make things up as I go. I am really impressed
with the carvers who can work out a specific design and DO IT....I just can't. I have been
putting in a lot of time and I just turned the corner last night from "potential burnpile" to
"potential keeper"...we'll see what happens next...thanks again



Oh...and Paipo...I have been spending a lot of time viewing your thread...wonderful work...I am
really impressed by what you are doing....you are highly skilled.

I really like how you applied the blue paint. Where did you find a Head Hunter to teach you that trick?

Wow, nice job Conga! I'm always too scared to try color but you do it well. Your snake figure is looking good as well. Is that mask very heavy?

thanks Raffer...I ran into a headhunter in my backyard....he taught me a few tricks!
And I still have my head. Wasn't sure about the paint...still not positive I like the look...
but things are going to be "grimed up" quite a bit before it's done....I think the process
will tone things down a little. We'll see how it looks after some dirt...chalk and
furniture wax.

Appreciate it Finky....yea it's kinda chunky....about 24 inches and not hollowed-out
in back (yet)....will take a sturdy nail to keep it in place.

Conga,

I'm digging the colors. Is that chaulk or paint? From here you will continue with your patented super-duper finishing techniques, or are you mostly done? Oh, and hollow that muttha out for Pete's sake!

Always appreciate the kind words GMan...Benzart...Duddy and BK....The aging process will
include efforts to tone down the color so it looks old and weathered...and then a few other
tricks.
Basement....if you are my biggest fan (or even one of the biggest) I have accomplished
all that I need to in carving....but I guess I'll keep working at it. Thanks.
