He's a keeper alright...I assume this one will be the centrepiece of your collection? Great job on the surface decoration, the designs really flow across the form.....
Looking forward to the stain on this guy - he's too pasty for a Maori at the moment!

Looking really cool G! I agree with Paip though; definately needs some colour to pass as a Maori.

Whats up with your back..? One too many spills in the sand or is it from moving this fella about? Take care of yourself brah!

Hey all,

Thanks for comments on my figure carving, they are much appreciated. Here are the first pics of the Barefoot Assassin in stain. He has a lot of real deep reds that didn't show in the pics. His knife is black. He will be getting multiple coats of spar and bone eyes with paua inlayed pupils. He's still a long way from done, but I wanted to meet Tama's request for (near) completed pics of him on page 100.

I hope you like him.





































-Gman

Holy crap! Looking awsome Gman. I bet a smooth coat of spar will make those colors really pop. Congrats on reaching page 100!

Are you Kidding, I LOVE Him! I Love the detail and not many peeps know how difficult that wood is to get that kind of detail from. Every cut had to be Nervewracking and meticulous. That wood is SO Chippy, Especially when it is as dry as it is. You get my highest commendation just for being brave enough to attempt it and then Complete it so perfectly. Well Done my friend!

Wow, that came out great. The chisel work adds a whole new dimension. The stain job looks fantastic with all the different shading. Sitting in the sunshine it just glimmers with pride.


Well done!

WOW!! Thats the one Gman. That stain really shows off the surface decoration! I can see now that there is a whole lot more going on with him than I realised. As you look through the shots from all angles there are several great 'picture' angles where different elements can be seen at their best. It is important that a 3-D piece have more than just one viewpoint. I particularly like the division down the stomach & when you move to the back it is almost a surprise to find it so smooth & free of decoration (& a definate surprise to see what he is holding!)

Top chop!! You'd almost have enough for an exhibition by now wouldnt you..? Bang out a few small pieces for those who cant afford the big stuff and youre away. Might earn yourself enough for a few new toys. Just a thought.

Great stuff mate. Let us in on the next one!

Tama
