Conga,

thanks!

Hopefully I'll get some carving tools pretty soon. I might have a little more time to carve after my portfolio is done in the next couple of months too.
Glad you dug the Kava Kava painting.

BenZ,

Thanks for the advice on carving and the compliment.

You're a great boon to the creating forums with all your knowledge sharing.
As far as my next project in wood, see the hint I left for Benella a couplah' posts back.

Word is bond!

Tiki spoon,

Moai started out as Moai/Ku hybrid, didn't wanna try to be "clever" so I carved the Ku bye bye, lil' Maori style Ku on bottom, Lono headdress/ moai topknot and Melanesian mask are all being tossed around for top , makau at bottom of piece becomes Maori tongue. I'll do the Moai head/ Ku full body hybrid next time.

Used the exacto knife (dull -- time to get new blade) and a lil' hack saw.



Maori "KU"




Thanks 4 all the support!

I thought I'd draw this while it was still in my mind's eye after carving this last session. The hands will prolly go on the front of piece.

Mctiki

Yeah I'm "hooked"--between painting, carving wood, being Dad, working, and working on that pipe I've been doing 24 hour days, then sleep 5-6 hours and repeat. No TV for me. I HAVE to slow down a bit and address some time/ money sensitive work for awhile. I put my carvings in a drawer cus if I look at em' I pick em up and next thing 6 hr's are gone. I turn 35 tomorrow so I need to rest up for a party.

Mahaloz for the propz!

I'm thinking about turquoise eyes for Mr. Moai.



Back to editing photos of my work for my portfolio...joy....

Thanks,

Benella,

Top one? Thanx I think!? Is that a question about the top of the pic. cuz there's no carving there ..yet?

Remember I was gonna do a Moai bust/Ku body hybrid? Well I didn't want to do too many strange things but I still put a weird dude in there. If you flip the piece upside down the Makau becomes a feather headdress and there is a warrior in gourd helmet there. The bottoms of his feet are the lower lip of the moai. I started seeing all these weird things while carving and I went with some of them... The warrior shares eyes with Hei-Ku and hands with the Moai.



G'nite,

S

Sorry Sneaky, in french "top one" means "very good" !

I forgot this would mean nothing for you
But very good concept.

Hey Sneaky- You're getting quite a nice collection of these little guys! I like the expression on Makau.



Anything happening with the Ku/Moai morph design yet?

Tiki Dav,

Thanks! Glad u like the expression.


I got a new exacto knife blade so I'm really using good tools now! LOL!

My fiance got me a cheap motor and some dremel attachments for my birthday so I'll have to try it out when I get the time.

I have been working on the Ku/Moai dude but no pix yet. I dunno if it'll read as Ku at all yet. If it's not successful I'll try a bilateral division on the next one where one side is Ku and the other side is Moai. L to R.

Mad respec' Yo!
