he's coming along.

slowly.

i hope to refine it a bit and get better at ears. even in my 3d computer work ears are the hardest part. we should just have holes like snakes.



sorry for the blurry pic. too many mai tais.

Yes the Moko is Very Hard in hard wood. You neednto try to keep it VERY Shallow and DON'T go too Deep (Just tthe opposite of what we are Always sayin) that way the grain won't ijnfluence it too much..Lookin Good though just stick with it.

thanks,

i bought a 1mm flexcut, but i'm not up to using it on this. i wish they had a tool that carved when you pulled it. i have a hard time controlling while i push.

I can't believe how far you've come with your carving, you out do yourself every time!
Thanks for posting the great pictures, I also really like the colour of stain you use.
