Great piece BenZ, am I reading that number correctly? #114, wow you sure are moving fast. I swear, every time you carve one of these, I see you in each piece. They all remind me of you! Love em.. Each and everyone.. Oh yeah, those green eye's on the other piece, reminded me of my lady and her tan. Just didn't cut it.. Now those MOP eyes are sweet and really go with the face color. Thanks for always doing your best!
Keep up the good work.

Thanks Big tiki Scot, Appreciate the kind words. sometimes the wood or bone will allow a more detailed signature.

Tiki Paka, Thanks, Glad you like him. You haven't missed as much as you thought, he is only # 111, not 114, need to get your glasses updated...

Aloha Benz your work is constantly progressing and always inspiring. Simply amazing. I love coming back to TC and scrolling through your pages and my jaw dropping. I still treasure my Stone Benzart and hope to visit you one day next year. All the best.

This new piece is looking great Ben! If it goes back into an aquarium, there are sure to be some happy-happy fish. We all know it won't though, just don't drop that little guy or you may never find him.

Harro, Thanks for checking it out and I think the next progress shots will be Killer ones,,Stay tuned

Thanks Tiki Mango, after today's work on the guy I was Really Happy, The eye was sharpened up and cleaned up and clarified along with the nose getting more definition and then the mouth and lips opened a bit to accommodate a set of teeth that look sooo goood, Then have most of the forehead moko declared and refined and the Ears refined and tightened up, leaving the cheek and jaw for tomorrow
Just can't WAIT to get the progress shots for today.s work


Well Should I report the DISASTER that befell this guy when he fell off the kitchen counter onto the tile floor below. Needless to say his days are through
