I thought that it looked good without toes but if he is going to call you from your dream, do what he says. The toes are coming out nice and does not look like an afterthought. Chance for more detail, cool

More detail = more tiki. Going back a few pages here, the flames are definitely bad-ass. I'm thinking this will be your finest piece so far when all is said & done.

Right on!!!!! A true hot rod icon......the flying eyeball and all the history behind it.
Its amazing how an image can reflect a whole 'nother part of the society and people. Just like a tiki from some tiny island.
I never quite understood why tiki and hot rods felt so good together...but they always have......maybe its a nostalgic thing..I don't know. What ya think Rodeo?
Ya do pinstriping? I just bought my first brush.
Tikis and cars and surf and girls.

Rodeo, nice work!!!
Can't wait to see it all painted up.
I've always liked Von Dutch. Some may Argue the flying eyeball was not his design.

It's funny when I see people wearing a Von Dutch Baseball cap or an Ed don Hardy cap and they know nothing of the artist, only that it's fashionable. Hey at least the art is being seen.

Thanks Guys , A little tribute to the man and not the clothing line..
Glad I made ya smile Raff

Here is a shot of some progress , Got lots of sanding still to do.
I have been toying with the idea between paint and stain, I am leaning towards using stain and just add some blue and black for the center of the eye.
Any opinions ?

RT.
My opinion. Very cool. I am officially taking over your status as worlds slowest carver. You are busting this one out. My initial gut is to paint it, but your the artist and the piece will let you know what it wants...keep it up.

Cool one Rodeo, I guess I have to keep my eye on you. You should carve this as the headdress of your next tiki. You may be on to something. Nice one.
