OK gentlemen, would you like to share this with the rest of the class?

Nice digits G! I can't recall having seen 'em done that way before - are the examples you've seen on newer (ie late 19th early 20th C) pieces? I know they're probably gonna get sanded back, but it would look cool to leave that nice chisel texture on them - it really accentuates the gnarled look.

All,

Thanks for dropping by and leaving me notes. You all make me smile and keep me pushing forward. Thank you.

So, I was just sitting 'round watching the tube when I noticed that this guy was giving me the eye.



He doesn't usually bother me much, but tonight he said I had to go out and carve. Not wanting to be alone in the house with an angry warrior...I went out and did what I was told.

Tonight I roughed-in the other foot on my new guy. Now he has two feetz. Here are a few progress shots.











Thanks for looking,

Gman

Tikisgrl - The toez, they nose! Thanks!

Benzo - The gnarly, wrinkled old face is at your house....can I borrow it back for a few dayz?

Finky - I will, don't worry. That little guy is usually the quiet one, but now I think he is plotting against me with this new guy. Help?

JohnnyP - Like Footloose? Never did see that movie - don't think I ever will.

Here are some pics from today. I did a ton of work, but most of it is not gonna show well in pics. The most obvious changes are that I gave him his ears, chiped at his face and neck for a few hours, and worked on his chest and right arm.















Thanks for looking,

Gman

I see you put him down for the night, good Idea as you never can tell what he would do upright and walking around!..I am Really loving watching this man grow into a human being. You are pulling up skills you never thought you had, don't be surprised at them. Just exercise them a bit quicker, I'm in a hurry to see this guy finished.

Hey guys, thanks for looking at the big figure carving. He's moving along, and yes, Ben, I'll try to go faster. I looked back and I started him in May of 2006, on page 51! Aaack!

My wrist and neck were hurting bad today, so I played around with a small piece of wood while sitting at the pool. This is a piece of wood that Benzo gave me some time ago. I don't know what it is but it's neat. It is dark with really pretty grain. I put some Watco rejuvenating oil on it before I finished for the day and that darkened it up some more. I still have to finish the headdress and play around with his features - I'm sure I'll finish him one day too....

He is 5" tall and a little more than 1/2" thick.





Laters,

G
