Well, I didn't win the trophy back (or get any pics), but I have got another remake done and dusted:



With any luck a couple more almost-done projects may surface in the next couple of days...

SUPERB! Nothing less than classic top-shelf P'po style. Only the creator of such fine work could get away with so few words for the adoring..

NEXT!

Cheers T - see you shortly
Thanks seek - you're onto it. "Hi-Tech Old World Art" - I like that...

Here's a piece that has been on the bench for a looong time - it's had one major revision due to a moment of inattention, and I didn't want to take pics until it seemed to be back on track. Still a bit of tweaking and finish work left to go, but it's mostly there now....and should be finished soon?

This looks interesting and ready for engineering . . . plenty of room for popping eyes, protruding tongue, and swinging palatine uvula

Mad Skillz Paipo!! That breastplate is sweet, I can't believe you got all those cuts in the shell like that. I break so many shells just cutting almond shaped eyes!!! This new one is looking like your going to have some surprises coming??

On a piece that size?
You're a madman!
I'm looking forward to see what direction this one goes.

Paipo, I'm Really glad you are posting this Latest guy. When I saw him this morning he totally Blew me away, hollowing out this head as you've done makes him all the more realistic and gives him a deeper third or 4th dimension. Of course when one sees all the Hollow areas, we KNOW what You do with those and Our minds start going pout of control with all the possibilities of special Movement this guy has the potential to have. So hurry up and Animate the crap out of him so our wandering mind can get some REST!

Aren't you Done Yet?

Many thanks E, C, H, G & B. Ah yes, Ben - the "4th Dimension". Why bother with just 3, when you can hollow out the interior and spend hours cleaning that up as well? I think I'm going to do it all again on the next piece too.


The pendant is getting very light now, but it will eventually become heavier again...I still haven't decided what's going to fill all that space yet!

Tama and family popped by today, so I spent more time hanging out, talking and drinking coffee than carving, but I did get out to the shed for a wee while...a session of fine-tuning on the features and it's looking a little more crisp:
