Hey, Duddy's back! Wow, you've been busy too, I see. Hopefully you don't suffer from the same disease I've got. The one that allows you to start a project, but makes it near impossible to finish! You've got some great ideas and I'd like to see how they come out!

But finish your story for your class first!

Nice work, Duddy! I wish I'd started carving back when I was your age, I'd be as good as Benz by now (in my dreams, of course ). But I can say that I had a hell of a lot of free time back then & tons of artistic inspiration, but little or no bucks for art materials & tools & stuff to make it happen. Which is the exact opposite of now, ironically. Probably true for most of the carvers here on TC, being average age of 40 or so I guess.

What kind of tools you got going, anyway? Keep it up, diggin the work.

Aaron

Looks great. I have the same Xacto box for carrying around my knives!

Faces are not that difficult; placing eyes, nose, and mouth. The difficulty comes when creating a Profile. The nose should be the highest point while the chin and forehead slope in. Also the cheek bones are very important as well, because they are the base that holds everything together. Don't focus on carving lips, the mouth is really just a hump resting on the chin (insert joke here). Simple lines can create the illusion of a mouth. I'm still trying to figure some of the proportions out. Carving a skull in wood is very difficult - unlike clay, there is not adding or reshaping if something isn't working. Recently I looked thru Woodcarving Illustrated and picked up a few pointers. Caricature carving is very popular and can easily be translated into Tiki. I would suggest taking a look at some Caricature books - can't hurt. There are alot of techiniques out there for carving - find one that you like and then carve what you like!
