Good job TD! Woodburning adds a lot to your work. They look better with more contrast like that. I have a question: What made you, at such a young age, decide to carve tikis?

hey thanks alot it really means something to have great carvers like yourselves comment on my stuff here.
buzzy- i really love your work and like how you take us on an adventure through the story as you go from beginning to where you are now. and about your question....i had some chisles around one day and ive always liked carvings and art but all i could do was drawing well so one day i just picked up a random piece of wood and started carving. a few days after i found this site and it just got me right into it. then i made my decision that i want to do this from now on.
benzart- thanks alot i also admire you so much. i still think you are some kind of tiki god in desgise. yes the woodburner helps alot with the look of the tikis.

thanks you guys i got another tiki but i just got to take a picture of it today. it will be on here in a little bit.

Sweet stuff, TD. I wish I would've started when I was in HS--you can only get better with age/experience. I'd be an ancient master by now!!! Like you will be by the time you're my age (somewhere between 25 and 50)

These are great Tiki Duddy! I think you were definitely meant to do this. Sometimes don't you wonder what you did before discovering carving? You can really see the progress in your work. I like how much the burning really brought out the features of that little guy. Looking forward to seeing your next project!

hey thanks all. means alot
little lost tiki- hey thanks. yes im supprised how many i have got done so far. and im not too sure about the envy part haha because i see AMAZING work here on TC.
ben- yes i like this guy's face too. i wasnt sure what to do with his mouth but it just came together at the end better than i thought it was going to. the reason his nose is like that is because there was a more elevated strip running down the wood and i thought "hmmm, that would make for a unique piece in the face" so i made it his nose and im quite happy i did.
zaya- hey i actually think that i was meant to carve haha. well i do it alot better than i thought i could ever. i know i would not be as happy now if i had not ever picked up that first piece of wood and started to carve. i would be wasting my time on something useless or on nothing at all. so therefore i think i made a good decision here. and ive kept with it and still feel strongly about carving so im pretty sure im gonna be doing this for a long time and that its not just a "phase"

well thank you for looking and thank you for the compliments i really appreciate all of you.
i also have another tiki done but i cant get a picture of it at the moment.

Nice work Duddy - make sure you get pics of your tikis before you give them away! How old are you anyway (if you don't mind me asking)? I didn't start carving until my mid-20s, and then only made a piece or two a year. I only got into it seriously when I turned 30 (I had sort of a mid-life crisis 20 years early) and it took almost another 5 years after that to go full-time.
I guess what I'm saying is that if you're as young as you look you've got a great head start on a lot of people, and have a long and promising future of carving ahead of you.
