That looks perfect! Nice pics! I'm glad you finished him up and that the new owner likes the color. I do too. Sweet stuff. When you get settled we'll expect more great stuffs from you!

I love when stuff like that happens. Something doesn't turn out the way you wanted it to, and it ends up being just what someone else was looking for!

Harro, this guy has a great look. To quote GMAN from an earlier post, "I really like the flattened head and the jawline." I agree totally.

Nice one, Harro! Looks like all it needed was the clear top coat to make it all better!

Congrats on finishing on time. Have a safe trip!

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Red, blue, purple yellow.... all I see is a really nice Marquesan inspired carving!

Nice work Harro, one to be proud of, and one that must have been tough to part with.

Looking forward to your next creation!

I'm totally into seeing the artist's hand behind the work - so thanks for not sanding out all the awesome toolmarks. That chiseled texture gives the piece so much life!
Great job!
