Man Seeks, Aren't you getting tired of all the praise you are getting for this little Lono?? I mean, well he IS Perfect and he IS INCREDIBLE, and he's AWESOME, and he's All that stuff and MORE so I guess all this Hubbub is WELL Deserved!
Back down to Reality, I Really love how the chisel tracks make it look like he is a Furry guy, it looks like he has a Beautiful furry coat that Any living thing would be proud of. I know the headdress is Awesome and everything but the REST of him is Just as excellent from the Toes on up past the nose.
I really think you need to start another one while this one is fresh in yer mind. Maybe in a Walnut log, or red Oak, ore some nice dark, Hard WOOD, yes?

Lake - Thanks again. I see lots of flaws mostly the back side.
I sorta wish the aliens where doing the carving my wrists hurt.

big daddy - thanks for the holy cow! Yes get yourself some large wood!

bennella - thanks again. I went for the feet detail again.

conga - please no bears.

GMAN - Thanks for your encouragement.

surfin - thanks for the super grom! not my best work but im getting
better.

tikifreak - thanks bro Im loving you last carve.

AlohaStation - thanks Im really slow thats how i think i get the crisp
testures.

Duddy - thanks for the incredible.

harro - Im happy with the headdress but its far from flawless in my
eye.

Benz - Im loving the praise it really helps as you know.
I would love to find a large hardwood log. The lono is
so right for a log becouse you always have that extra wood
up top.

Genial, the contrast between finishing in the gouge and smooth parts makes the whole really superbly terrible

Seriously, a labor of love.

Beautiful, Seeks.

Looks so impressive standing there dwarfing you and the pooch.

Just love the texture in this guy too.

Take a break, not too long, and get to the next one!

Capt'n Seek the fantastic is da man.
Capt'n Seek president of the masterpieces. I vote.

Awesome amazing super top shelf work mister.
The chisel texture next to the smooth "sanded like crazy" parts makes it totally.
The flowers up and down the eyes seem so perfect here.
I'll have a nice day, thanks.

Benjamin.

Great work, was the wood fairly green when you carved it? It has a lovely smooth look to the chisel cuts

Truly a great Masterpiece. Now that you have totally blown us all away with your Lono, when are you sending it down to my place?
Really, you have out done yourself on this carve and set the standard higher than we could ever possibly begin to match. Well done!
