Thanks GTP. No carving today. Hopefully I'll feel like working on him again soon. Between work and life....I'm smashed. May be next weekend - or, if I can get my friend's dune-quad out of my garage, I can pick at him a little bit at a time on weeknights. That would be best as seting up outside takes time and I have a limited window before the sun crisps me.

Paipo - I'm resting up. Hopefully I'll spend some time on him Saturday. Check back for an update soon. I hope to do some more little guys as well.....I've got a few ideas kicking around.

Howland - Feetz, Feats, and wild meats! That's how I get down! Nice to sea you around. Did you finish your backyard yet? If so, post some shots! I wanna see.

Good to see another big Gman Maori on the go. A cool, identifiable style with obvious nods to the ancients. And the wood colours are always interesting in your big pieces.

What an honour to have someone ink their body with your design too, how cool.

If I could just understand what it is you actually do when you talk about pigs, boars, crocs, buggies and such!?!?!

Cheers,
harro.

Helloha Harro! Thanks for the kind words about my carvings. Yes, a big nod to the ancients, but also my own direction. Yes, the skin-art is cool and as I said earlier, I am very flattered.

So that I don't get in trouble for posting a buncha off topic pictures (but I would really like to!)....pig, boar, and croc-talk is generally referencing my hunting activities. I hunt for meat, as I prefer to live off of wild game (and Winghouse/Hooters wings and curlyfries). I generally hunt for invasive species (wild boar) or animals that the state has identified as needing to be culled (crocodilians). I also prefer to hunt things that have the ability to kill me back. One day I'm going to get it I'm sure.

As for the buggies and rails, those discussions are referring to the building, racing, and general misuse of sandrails or "dunebuggies." I get into all sorts of trouble with the rail, my ATV, and my racing Kart. Do a search for the pic with all the staples in my head and you'll get the idea.

I think this is the post:

yeeeouch... those pics just put me off my ham sandwich - thanks gman!

right so you live in some outback crazy state with wild pigs and crocs that need cullin', so you hunt 'em, kill 'em, and eat 'em. And for fun you try to kill yourself in a dune buggy... ok so i think I'm beginning to understand now... YOU'RE LOCO!!

haha good stuff though, I bet you have plenty of stories. So what part of the states are you?

So Harro, you Finally figured out that pig sticker is a bit Loco? I wondered for awhile after the pig hunting, but when I saw him calling that Gator with JP's Horn and then saw the dead Gator, I was convinced he had made the turn and is on the Other side of the road to sanity. Welcome GMAn!
Now lets get back to work, this Warrior is Not gonna wait around forever for you to finish him up, he's going to call up the Ancients and you don't want that!

Harro - Yes.

Benz - The Ancients said to work on the little guy today. Who am I to disagree? So, it was hook-knife and chisels today. Sandpapaer for the big guy some other time.....

I hopee you likee the small guy.

GMAN, Thanks for carving, and thanks for showing your work. Although not a carver, I find it fascinating to see the process and the finished work.
Good luck with this guy, how 'little' is he?

You're a bloody worry mate..

Good to see you attacking something a little smaller and less likely to go for your throat G. Ive got to say Im impressed by how 'deep n steep' youve gone into dividing the tops of legs/bottom of stomach, making them seem really plump/fleshy. Does this make sence? I like the chiseled-but-soft finish on those legs too. Are you going to leave him textured or smooth him off?

Stay safe G!

Tama

edit: bloddy? bloody!
