Surfin, I too try different styles, but they all seem to look similar, somehow.

Octane, I think the crossed arms will be a recurring theme for me. It makes it a "protector tiki" and damn if I don't give them a lot of good mojo for the rightful owner.

Sam, the next one is already started. I'm way outto my league with it, but I'm going to try.

Thanks guys.

Raffer, thats the best way to improve your carving skills. Reach higher and try something you think is beyond your skill level. What happens is that you will find a way to "Solve" the problems when you get to them. When you are done, your skill level will be much higher. You have already come a long way since you first started asking us "Carvers" how to stop the hurting hands or something like that. We have All watched your tikis continually get better and better and you have developed a "Raffertiki" style that is very distinguishably yours.
Keep up the good work and keep reaching for that Next level. You CAN Do it.

Raffertiki,

A while ago you asked me how long it took to develop my style, it looks like that is a question I should be asking you. The latest tiki you created is outstanding. It kind of reminds me of some of the tough guy surfers around here who like to hang around the cliffs and vibe people. It has the tattoos and smashed nose all it needs is a forty ouncer. I always look forward to seeing your new ideas.

Will

Yeah Benz, it's kind of like training for a marathon, you keep running a little farther each time until you can haul the entire 26.2 miles. Except there is no finishline in site with carving. Who knows where it will take you? And thank you for the inspiration.

Wow thanks SC. The new one is going to be completely different from what I've done so far. Hopefully I can measure up to the challenge.

By the way, on 2 occasions I've found 2 different Praying Mantises on the head of the new one. Would you guys consider it a sign?

Its a sign that this tiki attracts preying mantis. The mantis gods smile upon you.

Nice work on that last too. Looks great with the stain.

I forgot to mention, I'm going to drill a hole in his hands so he will be holding a tiki torch.

By the way, Raffertiki, how tall is he? Will you paint or just stain this one? A little color would make the mask look cool!
