I agree with McDougall, there is some really nice detail going on there. Is it the light or do I see a few teeth in that mouth. Keep it up, Speed it up and give more pictures. More, More.

Nice job on that tiki!
I like how he turned out - it's got a different look to him and it looks great.

Looks like those chisels are calling now more often....

Nice job. I think he reminds me of the General in the new Planet of the Apes movie.
Good luck on the new log.

Thanks guys,

Yes those are indeed teeth.

I have heeded the call of the chisel, and have more than a few designs sketched out. I'm still trying to find my voice in this medium. I though my seven foot log was pretty dry until I debarked it last night. It will need some drying time. Luckily I have a few more smaller logs to work on, as well as my artwork, a screenplay, and a new idea for a book. This is all starting to cut into my drinking time.

If you need any help I'll be glad to jump in Not sure what I could do but situations arise that need to be resolved. Every feature on a woodcarving is a situation that needs to be resolvedHave fun.

Hey Benzart, Maybe you can finish this screenplay for me. It's a gross out rock n roll love story, and I'm stuck 3/4s in.

Actually, about my wet log situation. I-m planning to let it sit, off the ground, and covered with a tarp. Is there anything else I can do?

NiceFishy how long has it been cut down and what kind of tree is it? These are two important questions that will help.
If it is a Palm of some kind just go ahead and carve it. If it is White pine or in the pine family, it should dry several months above ground prefrably under a cover, roof, garage or similar. Hope this vague answer helps.

Benzart, It's been cut down for about 5 or 6 months. I'm not sure what it is, but it has thick chunky bark.

Gorilla from Planet of the Apes, or a gaurd? Yeah, I can see that. What about one of the wicked witch's soildiers from The Wizard of Oz?

Sounds like some kind of pine. You could probably carve it if you put a finish on it right away. Checks are cool anyways.

This one measures 2 inches shy of 7'. It was kind of an experiment, and was carved on a nasty piece of wood called Locust.

I love the idea of the plant growing on top! That will add a lot of character! Great job!

Allright! He's back! I was hoping that you'd return to the chisels...I'm guessing your eye is okay?

This carving looks great, and the color looks really good as well. Nice job. Is it going in your front yard to scare the locals?
