Good thinking and Kong Tiki looks great, just don't forget he's in the backyard or you might have a heart attack.

Sure thing TikiMango! Hehe, I wonder if the neighbors are okay…! They should have gotten used to some heart attacks by now:) Cheers!

Here is a project I did for a horror feast in Oslo.
They wanted a sculpture so I made an OwlTiki, thats just what came into mind.
The owl is made out of Styrofoam and then painted with a type of plastic paint.

Sketched up with fluorescent markers



Carving done with an electric fillet knife



Green lights serves you good horror mood



Heres the finished owl painted



Other angles

New project, doing tikis for a private tikibar in Oslo.
These are made of Norwegian Pinetree, this is the type of wood
that works best considering size and availability.

First step of trim



Here I have done some carving on the first tiki, the tikis
are supposed to become pillars on the sides of the bar, to keep the roof up.



Side views



More details will be added later, as soon as were able to fix this dust problem!



Here is a picture overview of the room Im working in, and its literally filled up with dust.
The fire alarm went off the other day because of it, but luckily we were able to tell the fire department there was no fire.



Start of the second tiki pillar





I got a new chainsaw, and its quite nice for the larger carves

Hi,

This is my first attempt making a tiki while working with brushes in Illustrator and then taking it through Photoshop.
I name it Misty Tiki, - hope you like it.
