I am having a Beachin flashback.

Keep trying Pocky.

Your skills will get better with each attempt. Its super cool that you are just trying. Many folks wont even do that...

spend more time analyzing the characteristics of what bamboo looks like. Try a flat top instead of a bulbous sort of bishop chess piece kinda thing.

I would work on something more like a mug where the seal at the top is not a consideration. A shaker would be a really tough thing to make from ceramics because the liquid would leak like crazy from that lid.

Even tight plastic shakers can leak...

dont give up and understand where you sit in the spectrum of artists here when seeking feedback.

I am always learning from the true artisans here...

No actually i never asked for a critique I just wanted to see people's reactions. Mind you i showed it to TikiSkip and he thought it was really cool cuz it was pretty much what he was envisioning. So that's my story.

So basically this is just a big Show-and-Tell handjob.

OK, great, then I don't need to bother with this thread anymore.

Thanks for clearing it up.

Keep going kid! you will get better and better! You need to keep working with different stuff. Then you will find your favorite way to let your artistic side out. You got art in ya. Monkeyman, your stuff is way cool! you are one of the artisans I look to.

So you want to "see people's reactions" as long as they aren't critical?

Alright I'm just gonna shut up for a few days guys. I've been notified by numerous persons and I'm gonna take their advice to heart, considering I like it here in this community and I'd like to get to know all of you. I'm used to a different Forum community and it's still in my blood. That's why all the numerous posts in one day. I apologize for my blabbering thusly i shall remain in solitude and sit back from TC for a couple days to suck it all in the right way. Peace.

"So basically this is just a big Show-and-Tell handjob"-PurpleJade
I don't exactly know what you are getting at but isn't that what everything in creating is, the big show and tell handjob?

I like Pocky. We can certainly use one Pocky around here. Its certainly not easy to hand build, most tiki related ceramics are carved or molded from a carved piece.

But Pocky you are a lucky guy. You get the chance to look over all the old posts and see great tikis for the first time. I see nothing of interest in the general area for the last few weeks and at least I like seeing a young guy posting new stuff (regaurdless of level).

Hit the nail on the head there dude. Nice work.

Pocky, I found my art grew in leaps and bounds when I took on the established artists feedback on board. Give it a go, hell a couples of go's to get comfortable with it. If something doesnt work for ya, stop it and do something else. Experiment. Have fun. Make lots of tiki crap becuase thats what gives ya a big goofy smile. Share it with us, and grow as an artist by taking on feedback.

Hugs and kisses (in a manly way) from Handjob Hewey

Hey all, guess what!? My posts per day have gone down! hehe, anyways. I'm compacting all my posts here so here are some Moai inspired doodles and drawings i did today in school. I also found some cool South Pacific articles in national Geographic which you can see in the General Tiki thread.


aloha!
