I'll be honest that I wasn't sure about this guy until the homestretch. The tats really ratched up his attitude level. I applied the first coat of varnish which was saoked up liike a sponge. He will need at least 2 more coats, probably 3.

Thanks everyone for your compliments. Reading them was sure a nice way to finish up a long day.

Thanks Hewey.

Sam, I think my next one is going to drag me way past my comfort/skill level. I'll need to get my tools sharpened for that one.

Okay, so this one is signed, sealed, and delivered. Yes I sold him.

Here he is with 4 coats of marine varnish (satin finish).



He went to a good home, so it was easy to let him go. The fun part was delivering him in the passenger seat of my little Del Sol. I got more than a few double-takes.

Raff, he came out fantastic! That's got to be one the coolest carvings that I've seen here. I know you got some inspiration fron Benz, but it really came out unique.

Thanks Rodeo, Fez Ape.

AA - Yes this guy was definately Benz inspired, which means it was an awesome learning piece for me. I'm glad he was as well received as he was. I might have to revisit this design soon.

CREATIVE! LOVE the maori touch on the cheeks. Yes, style has emerged. I don't want to develop a style, 'cause there's so many styles to try! I'll have to someday.
