hey paipo thanks alot.
yes i know i need to get pics before i give them away. its just my sister has been rather.......demanding? yes i think thats the word. and she wanted it a certain way and all so i was pretty excited when i could finally give it to her. and now....well she wont let me take it for a day to get a pic of it. but she will take one herself so it will be on here soon.

oh i dont mind you asking my age. im fifteen years old and in grade 10. yes im glad i started this early so that i know when im older ill be atleast a little bit better.

Hey duddy,

I love what you are doing here, and yes, starting young is a great way to improve. Just keep looking at your older work and learn/try something new with each piece. You are already putting a great amount of character into each of your pieces (that last one looks like Benz!). I would bet that in a few months you will be light-years ahead of where you are now. Keep going, thinking, and concentrating on slow steady progressions. I love it! I've been carving for over 25 years, and I learn something new every day

Wow, you're exactly the same age I was when I taught myself to draw by copying from comic books, but as I mentioned I didn't even try to carve anything for almost 10 years after that. You know you're already doing good work when someone won't even let you have a piece back long enough to take a pic!

Nice work Duddy. It will be fun when you get to a point where people will just say, "Hey, great tiki Duddy!" instead of , "You're how old?"

Keep carving away and try not to stop for too long. I do that sometimes and I definately loose something when I come back. I've been doing this for two years now, and I'm only on #15.

hey i finished this tiki last night. its about 3 or 4 feet high. its a little deformed because of the stump growing out of the side of his head but i like it because it looks a little bit more natural.
hope you like...






and there is my cat beside it being well.......a cat.

also decided to show a picture of my tools right aways.

and that is my carving area. yep my front step haha.

well there he is. later tonight i should have the one i gave to my sister on here.

Looks great. Don't be afraid to go deep with your cuts. As you progress, you'll find that the depth and form of your cuts will define the tiki. Your carving area is the same as alot of people on this board. Keep those chips flying.

Go deeper my son. Pull the Tiki from the wood (or whatever media you posess ie; plaster, concrete, foam, clay)

That's a fine first biggun sir! Keep at it.

Oh and your carving area... is a Cadillac compared to mine. I got a Yugo carving space.

hey thanks again.
yes i was thinking i should go a little bit deeper but i really had no idea what to do with the big tikis. i wasnt sure if i should use the chainsaw to outline the facial parts or what. so i pretty much did it all with chisle. and from the pictures i took it shows that i went less deep than i really did. but i still need to go deeper.

thank you

TD, It looks like your "Big" tiki is coming along nicely. We Really need to get you a new camera, that phone camera just does not do it. A Bigger camera will make your tikis look SO Much better because I think we are missing ALL the detail??
Still though, he's looking good.
