Cool dude, you got the proportions pretty damn good! I'm guessing it would take a bit of experience to get the "stretch" right? makes it all the more impressive.

Man, like the six million dollar tiki. With technology we can build him. The tiki carvers of the old would have never thought of these days. You haven't even started and I can say, "it looks good".

it has the last "tiki crawl" tiki mug feel to him. Like a little woodland creator. I like that look. Maybe like a craving of what a tiki's pet might look like craved. You have may attention.

Progress Report-

Thanks everyone for your comments! This guy's comin' right along- I feel like he's not too far from finshed... I'm thinking about a turquoise blue stain, or I may just go dark grey and try to make him look all weathered.



Check out the progress gallery here!

That's right on the money, Skully. Beautiful. I think I like the little nose wrinkles the best. Like I said, the 3-D wrap works wonders, but it's gone so much deeper and stylized now that you've committed it to wood. This will be another "par for the course" dynamite Skully tiki, I'm sure.

Cap,

That is high-tech man! Neat stuff. I imagine that will keep your carving balanced nicely and allow you to carve the left and right sides nearly identically. I work in a totally opposite way (no plan & very little thinking), but I think what you are doing here is wicked cool. I admire your planning efforts.

Thanks Machtiki, TeaKey, AA and GMan! Those are huge compliments to me...

GMan- My methods (developed from techniques by A-A and BK primarily) are exactly for that- to maintain the symmetry as much as possible... I learned quickyl with my first tiki how powerful the pre-planning process can be- so you can focus on the details and not worry so much on the features themselves.. Otherwise I would have quit halfway thru the first one and never carved again. In a way I wish I could just draw some lines and have at it tho... BTW- Your chainsaw skills are strong!
