Those are cool dudes! I like the 2nd from the left, and the big one, and, well, hell! They all look really good. Hook Knife? Bas Wood? What's the tools and wood?

yes, my eyes hurt. i need to get a magnifier. i don't think i have enough light, either.

these are all done with a hook knife and some small chisels. they're sanded a little with a diamond tip on the dremel and sanding sticks, then a bees wax finish.

thanks for looking.

I'm a newbie at carving, but I've been doing little guys and selling them at a sunset festival at the beach.
