Will, I've never actually tried to carve indoors, ever, anywhere.

And Nixxy, toasted almond popsickles are great when I've got the munchies and want some junkfood.

Anyway, the detailing continues...v-cuts and deeper lines...

I donated this tiki & this mask to WMNF, a local radio station, for their spring fund drive...

They're a great station that has Pacifica / NPR news, punk shows, reggae, etc...so it's pretty much my favorite station.

well, I realized that at this point I have enough time into this one that if someone ripped it off, I'd probably flip out & go postal, so it's no longer being left out in the front yard at night.

It is now an official resident of my home. A lot of progress on this one in the last couple of days. I think this is the best Hawaiian piece I've done to date. I'm really excited about it. I'm trying to watch tv but I just keep looking over at it and thinking "wow!!! I totally made that!!! sweet!!!". If you would have told me just under 3 years ago when I made my first piece that I'd be making stuff like this in a few years I would not have believed it. It still has A LOT of work left to go, but I feel like this one is a "milestone"....

Once I finish the eye / mask area I need to start figuring out what kind of designs / tats I'm going to put on the body. He may just get a "surf soul tiki" cholo-style tattoo over his abdominal area.

And you guys have been killing me with these shells and rocks and stuff for eyes, so this one is getting some kind of polished stone eyes....obsidian maybe? Benz warned me about that stuff...so maybe something else...I'm not sure..

And Nixxy, not sure about the color...I was thinking about that earlier. Golden Pecan is pretty much my "go to"...but I might have to mix something special just for this one with some of it & something to darken it a bit.

Definately a nice one. I'd like to see you do one entirely with chisels. Power tools have thier uses - but its surprising how quickly you can carve once you get started - and carve deep. Focus more on the bodies and legs. Having a really cool chiseled face and then the body is just a few chainsaw and angle grinder cuts doesn't quite make much sense. One of the things Will and I discuss often is the relationship of cuts. How the chest flows into the crotch and the crotch wraps around into the ass - how the knees flow into the hips and around into the crotch. How the neck meets the shoulders and the arm moves down to meet the hips. Don't get me started on the feet (which I still struggle with). The samples on the following page (and that entire thread) helped me figure it out...

wow...thanks for that link....

so much in there to absorb I just looked at like 2 or 3 pages and was like "uhhh, I need to save this for later when I can concentrate on it!"

So I whacked a standing dead palm & got these out of it. 3ft, 4ft & 5 1/2 ft.

I love the way the light's hitting the headress in the pic further up the page. Have you thought about using coloured lights on it?

yeah man, I'm lucky that I have a regular bulb that works!

anyway, a little more progress on the big kanaloa.

a wise man once told me that one receives "extra credit" for poking holes, through which one can see daylight....

holes poked.
