I've dubbed him "Ookii Kowaii", my child-like translation to Japanese to mean "Big Scary".

Hey Capn"

You have some nice lines going on their. I really like how you handled the nose. It's good as is, but since you asked for suggestions, I recently carved out a concave recess on the head of a tiki. It wasn't noticable if viewed straight on, but it did give it a finished feeling.

Scroll down to the stained pics (page 9), and you can kind of see what I did.

Cap'nScully, I don't believe thqts yor first tiki or at least your first carving. It's too good. Very nice job. Have you carved other things before? What tools did you use. I would leave him as is he is Really NICE.

Thanks for the warm words- Much appreciated.

This is my first large carving- I've only carved 2 staffs before, which were really just stripping bark compared to this... I pulled it off by lurking here for hours assimilating all the precious data stored in these pages, posted by the MANY masters and carvers, as I've patiently whittled away for months. All chisel.

Really dig that recessed head- and the lines on the loin cloth effect... Good inspiration- I used the recessed parts for inside his mouth.


Doing cleanup work while finalizing the design...

First off BIG Welcome to Tiki Central from us all. We are glad to have you here and it seems as though you will fit in perfectly here, so come on in and relax and stay awhile..
Again, Capt'n Skully, Super nice job. Beautiful for a first one. I wasn't trying to question your honesty with the "not your first" comment, it is just too fantastic for a normal first. You Must carve Many More pieces. I can see super attention to detail. Very precise similar to Aarons Aku carvings. What I can't get over is the level of perfection you have achieved. You are going to be one of the Excellent carvers.
Stop whatever you are doing (except another carving) and start a few more carvings Right away. AND you Must post pictures of the progress. It is very important for you to do this. Only because it is what we love at TC.

I usually hate first time carvings. I look and they ask for opinions and I think "firewood!" But I dig this one. Great stuff. Great style and depth.

I just put chisel to wood my first time this weekend. I hope I can come close to yours when I am done.
