Nice and clean cut. The final piece looks better than the sketch with the added features.

Beautiful...highly stylised but distinctively Marquesan, and super crisp carving. You've got some pretty polished skills there. Could we see some in-between shots if you have them?

edit: I found some of your old posts...you had this guy on the back-burner for a year? All your old pics are dead in those other threads - maybe you could update this thread with your Tiki #1 and the progress pics from #2 - your process using the 3D mapping sounded really interesting!

Great number 2! I love the roundness of it, looks like it would fit in nicely in a disneyesque setting.

Very beautiful work, Capt'n Skully! There have the right and clean cuts on your Tikis. Especially I like the massive eyes of your first Tiki. Beautiful, beautiful .....
