cool designs octane! I really dig the groovy grain patterns on that ash mask - totally psychadelic...man. These carvings are showing how versitle (sp?) your carving style is - just about able to conquer anything.

good luck on those finals...I remember those...cram like a mo-fo!

Lookin' forward to what you got instore for us this summer!

Octane! Great to see you back. It's cool that you've found time to carve between school papers & assignments. BTW, what's your major? Just curious!

thanks Polynesiac, i kind of lucked out with the grain.

thanks A-A, my Major is Business, with concentrations in Accounting and Finance. Since that is not enough i'm going for a minor in Econ as well.

thank you tikiwahine and congatiki, for the kind words.

Hopefully after finals i can get back to carving 100%. It is against my tiki religion to go to summer school, so i should have the time to carve. I doodle or sketch out some new tikis during class, so hopefully i will have a few new designs.

again thanks for your kind words, everyone

Yo Octane, Nice to see you posting new work Especially such NICE Stuf. Those small masks are really KOOL. You are really getting super smoothe finish and Nice detail. Both masks are veery nice, the shrunken head type guy is vety unique and should go over great. keep up the good work.

THanks Ben, Bamboo Princess, and Rodeotiki, for the kind words.

Well i have been out of town most if not all of this summer so far but i was able to get one carving close to done. I hope i can get some more stuff done but i'm not sure how long i will be in town.

the carving still need to be Cleared with a polyurathane.
I kind of tried to rough him up a bit to get that fake old look, not sure how it will look after the poly.

I think he'll look at least as good with the poly. Nice one.
