surfin, I only went from 98SE -> XP a little over a year ago - so I'm not expecting to dip my toes into vista til around 2015!

harro - it was all top-secret stuff, as I didn't want to post anything until there was something tangible to show. I really hope this is a success for Gecko as he's done a lot of work on my behalf....

Kinny, just think how it'll look with those dainty digits wrapped around it! "Oooh, Mr Tangata Manu....you're so...big!"

Tom, in answer to your questions:
Quote:
1. I heard that it is not compatible with wood, clay or paint?
2. It only works in "NZ time zone"?
3. If it crashes, beer and other external intoxicants are the only things that can get it restarted?


  • No, but Paipo V3.0 "Other Crafts", scheduled for release in the 3rd or 4th quarter of 2008 will be, and 2.0 is upgradeable to wood compatibility.
  • We are having issues with posts in V2.0 being dated a day earlier than they actually occurred. This is easily corrected by waiting an extra day to read them.
  • The recently released Appleton V/X patch has corrected most known issues, but our technical team are still working on creating the first Mai Tai ever mixed in Greymouth.


Ben, Tama was playing with those teeth yesterday, but I didn't see if he got bit. Buggy? yes - this (and the other skull) are based on the Bumatay bug-eyed tikis.

seek - teeth eyes? or did you mean eye-teeth? ....or maybe these??? (gotta use this on a tiki!)


Henrik, this one's for you! BEHOLD!

Thanks OO - that's high praise coming from you.
Cheers pat - more skully goodness coming right up!

Last rays of twilight + "oil painting" filter = instant velvet painting (no colour adjustment)!



I finished this guy just after I took the above pic - final shots tomorrow (when the sun comes back....)

Many thanks Ben, conga, kbgator, Kinny (guess I could try it with a resin version - I'm keen to use these as source pics for some drawing or painting down the track) and Kahu for dropping by.
Here's a whole heap of pics of the finished Skull of Yatumba (V2.0!) aka Stone Tiki #45.
Enjoy!


I went with jade eyes - I didn't have many options, but these look great when they catch the light and the jade glows an eerie green. It seems to always work really well with the grey stone too.




I've hardly made any pebble tikis in the last 6 months, so I had to check my files to see where I was at. #45!






The eyes can be adjusted to suit your mood. I dig the - it has a cool Japanese vibe like this.


From velvet painting to stop-motion animation (curse my shitty plastic tripod! )

Hey Paipo! I've said this before, but I'll say it once again: Jeez, just when I thought you couldn't possible get any better!

The Kinetic Skull of Yatumba is spectacularly amazingly fantastic! (and pretty good too)

Rock out, Bruddah.
