Thanks congatiki, seeksurf, little lost tiki, TikiMango, Benzart, Fugu, Bowana, laojia, Paipo, squid and tok-tok! thanks for checking on me and taking the time to comment, I appreciate it very much.
About how they sound, well, I'm not sure, I was able to carve them , but I'm the worst drummer ever, that's for sure. They sound a little different now, with the all the way trhu carves, but they still have an interesting sound... if i find any squids around here, that can make them sound cool , i'll tape something...
Thanks again!

Easy solution. Bring them to Tiki Oasis. Every drummer there (me included) will quality check them!

Just a another friendly Ohana service we provide here, free of charge.

"Thank surfintiki!! Where do I come up with this stuff? well, everything has to do with everything in my case, I mean my "Tikis" are very me, a mix of all the stuff I like (I grew up watching cartoons, then studied hand made animation, so I like simple strong colorful characters a lot. and i like music a lot too so those are my two biggest influences I think) and the way I am (weird, rebel, honest....) to me the tiki culture has music in it, if you get what I mean. and the other thing is that I don't like designing first and then carving or using anything as reference, I like to go with the flow of the material and surprising myself with the result...

But in this case I'm drawing the general lines and then carving and changing it on the way, I already draw the other two guys but who knows how they are going to end up looking like
Thanks again everybody, your support means a lot to me, really! "

Just Listen to you sounding like the perfect artist. Tell us More. Now I see where some of your design skillz come from.

I just realized this guy is beating drums held up by a Bamboo Stand? I Can't Stand it your mind thinks ahead in such neat ways.
Of course I Still am Amazed at the crisp perfection of your detail and from the sounds of it you had better get busy as there are dozens here wanting your Neat drummer bands
I've said it before and now again, Your signature is Awesome!

Clarita,
Found this thread after reading your response in the theoretical discussion thread - thank goodness for such threads that get me leaving the Other Crafts forum and visit the next door neighbours

Beautiful work and what a great progress. Everything from the candle holders to the drums sure have your unique signature. You rock!

The last set of drums I've carved, were already made, my mother bought them in '81 at the north of Brazil.
This time I've made them from scratch, using green bamboo, the yellow one in the pic it's named Tacuaron

So here it is the 2.0 version of the same guys i did before, but entirely made by me, with some changes just for fun

There are still some details to take care of..
I'm going to take the pics all around them, when I get some sun... It's winter here, and it rains and rains...
Much Aloha to everyone

If you put the two pictures close together, it's easier to compare the differences and similarities!
So you carved set 1.0, and then carved set 2.0 to be exactly the same only different?




Ah yes. I see the differences now! Great design work and clean execution. SWEET.
