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






Yeah, that animation is so crappy I thought Id bring it to page3. why do you bother..?
Back to reality; we're all sitting at our PC's doing the same thing It takes a special kind of genius to do what you do fella & Im sure if you had the budget of an average Peter Jackson flick you'd get that image nice and steady. And fix that wobbly cord.. and that flickery shadow thing.. and the way that the..

I like the skyward-eyes pose too. Gives him real vitality/life and makes you wonder whats going through his mind..?


*Do you realise this thread has run to 3 pages in a week?? According to my calculations that gives us about a month or so before we see the start of 'Paipo's Stone Tikis V3.0'!!? Go, go P'po..

Nice! And with a little extra work this could become the central figure in the next Angelina Jolie/Harrison Ford movie "The Curse of the Cross-Eyed Skull."

Without any further ado - some recent work to get things rolling:

"Melanesian Modern" pebble piece and a couple of hei-matau variants.

The bottom two are made from the same slab of Marsden jade:



I've made and posted this hook design before - this one is the 4th for the same family!




Hi Paipo...congratulations on the new thread...and the mug.

I dream of being able to make work like the above....so fine. Just beautiful designs.

Can't wait till your next post.

Paipo-

My wife has just snapped me out of a stone skull induced coma! It seems that upon gazing at the finished Skull of Yatumba I attained a state of "coolest thing ever seen" nirvana and remained staring and drooling at my computer for several days. Thinking I was puttering away in the studio, Ms. VanTiki finally noticed my absence when I failed to take out the trash for collection this morning. She revived me with a fresh-cut lime from our tree and nearly fell into a skull-induced trance herself when she saw what I was looking at. Fortunately I yanked the power cord in time!

Seriously - amazing work. Are you selling this one (silly question) - I guess I should ask, has it sold already or are you ebaying it?

You rock my world!

Henrik

Skull is very perfect, I watched the bulging eye animation for a while. Then I went back and traced all the cuts and groves and contemplated how you put it all together and styled it. Wow, you are d&*() good.

It sounds like we're ALL just sitting around staring at those buggin' eyes..!
Damn you Paipo, you're wasting all of our time!!!


Hell of a way to corner the Tiki market though - stun your fellow carvers into zero productivity..

skull.. of.. Yatumba..

Sorry for the slow response to all the comments - I was waiting and waiting til I had something to post as well. It might be a while before that happens, so I'm just dropping by to say g'day instead.

Cheers to Benjamin, Bowana, Babalu, hil, birdman, Tama x2, timid, Robin, Ben, G, TeaKs (I tried rejigging the "redeye" to get him in sync with the other, but it didn't work!), Ben again (can I have some of that, whatever it is?), VanTiki (unfortunately this guy was spoken for many moons ago - but who knows? There may be more! I spend a lot of time staring at that pic too - it's very hypnotique!), JP, Mooney and seek.

Tama, I think it (the Skull) lulled me into zero productivity too - I have officially got $%^#!-all to share this week. I made a nice abstract wave sculpture for the annual Bodyboarding comp I sponsor, but I just dropped it off down at the breakwall (solid, offshore and messy) and realised whilst driving back that I didn't take a single photo!!! AAAARRGH. Sorry Ben!

This sounds like the start of a good plot for a family-Disney flick: now all you have to do is enter the competition (after finally convincing the judges to let you enter by proving youve got the moves, even if not quite old enough..), beat the nasty wave-nazi kids (stealing their leaders impressive board in the process to make up for the one they swiped off young Timmy..) and bring the Trophy home for photographing, thereby appeasing the Ohana and saving the family farm..

You've got no choice Paipo - its either stand up to them now or theyll be pushing the grommets around forever and spoiling the beach for everyone with their littering and loitering. Just remember what Mr Myagi taught you P'po-san.. wax on, wax off.. drop out, drop in..


OK, that'll do. Bummer about the pics..
