Thanks for all the responses.
Clysdalle, I should probably avoid the whole nordic chick with polar bear thing. Great pic.
Heath, thanks for all the help getting things ready for the gallery show. Much appreciated.
4WDtiki, thank you. Sorry I missed the final chop at your place. I "caveman" chopped and finished that sucker.
Polynesiac, thanks, I'll post pics of the crude tiki soon.
Huge mahalos to all.

Yeah I know, I'm bumping my own thread. I just wanted to mention some of my art, along with Clysdalle's, Sleestak's and Big Toe's is available for viewing right now at The Light Gallery in Costa Mesa.
Once again a very Happy Halloween to all the Ohana.

Hey Polynesiac! Here's that tiki.... my second tiki ever carved. Be kind.

Side view. The skull part just kinda happened.

Just can't afford all the great carvers stuff out there. Decided to just go for it myself.
Cheers

When that happens, you know you're in tune with the wood, my friend.

Very cool carving!! I love the skull munching (that's a great idea), I also like how you used the "husk" part (for lack of a better name for it) - it gives the tiki a different feel and a little more texture.

how did you get the lighter color? did you sand the husk? or???

A great addition to the lava flow!

Thanks Jungle! Like I said no hurry on that. I'm not going anywhere.
Polynesiac, thanks. Yeah, I just sanded the husk to change the color. Mr. NoNaMe hipped me to that trick. I debated long and hard on whether or not to remove all that husk. I don't know if I was just being lazy or not.

Looks real good Matt!
But you know with the weather starting to cool off, you should probably pull that thing into the garage and get some sort of clear coat on it.

Heath, thanks. Very funny, I'll wait for you to haul that sucker up the stairs.
Clysdalle, up yours smart guy. You know how slow us old guys move. It reminds me of the...time.. I er um forgot what I was saying. Working on new paintings just hold your horses.(Get it? Clysdalle-Horses? Anybody? Anybody?)
LLT thanks. You da man.
Cheers.

A Clysdalle is an illiterate horse,prone to spelling errors (see above example AND the whole Bandito/Bandido issue) and refusing to draw Tikis..

Thank you Hank. Also thanks for the booze and the float. Already hung it.
Keigs, thanks, I just love the look of the bark.
