I like that 'Lucha Libre' thing you've got going on, as the other guys have already said, don't be afraid to go a bit deeper...

i got up this morning and got right to work. after about 4 hours of switching between the chisels and the die grinder my compressor kicked the bucket. lol always buy the extended warranty. so off to Lowe's i went to get a new one lol. i hope to have some pics for you guys tomorrow. the whole time i am out there working on this tiki a voice in the back of my head keeps saying "Go Deeper" lol. how deep is deep enough?

Nice stuff

"How Deep" = when the piece no longer looks like a log...

Mahalo!

the tiki i am working on now is coming along. i am trying to take my time so i dont hurt myself or make any mistakes that would mess up the tiki. those burrs are amazing. they remove wood really fast and are pretty easy to control. the lancelot how ever is a whole different animal. like you said it is a honey badger. that thing removes wood but is much harder to control.

I'm liking the Ellis influence with the grasping hands around the legs - very nice touch! This tiki is coming along VERY nicely...I'm digging how so many carvers on here start with the legs and work their way up!

My answer? - when you chop ALL THE WAY through the log.

thanks guys. yeah those burrs are really nice and have allowed me to do some things that would have been very tricky with the tools i was using. the little skull i knocked out pretty fast for my friend's kids birthday. i met him about a month before she was born. she turned 16 today so i thought it would be cool to make a little something for her. she was very stoked when i gave the little skull to her. it is a pretty cool feeling to have people like the art you made and the look on her face when i handed the little skull to her was worth a million bucks.
