Aloha! I wanted to start a new art thread for the new year, you know, fresh beginnings and all that.
Here is the link to my '06 art:
My '06 Art
or my '05 stuff: My '05 Art

Here is the carving I started on the first day of the year. There is a ways to go on it yet, but it's far enough along now that I'm somewhat sure I wont screw it up.





Here's one with my old buddy, Chase


Here's to all of you who gave me advice, encouragement, and support over the last couple of years and here's to another great year of Tiki Central!

Thanks Gman, you and I both know I couldn't have done this without you.

Tama, I tried to use the curve to my benefit. Things got a bit scarey in the center where the bone was thinner. And yes, it was a tangley mess to try and visualize!

Thanks a bunch guys!

That dude is great. It must have taken a long time to layout the octopus on that shape of bone, and still have it look so good.

Thanks guys! Each of you is an amazing artist, so your opinions mean a lot to me.
I'm anxious to finish up my octopus, but I'm still waiting for some new tools to arrive in the mail. So in the mean time I carved up this little Tangaroa figure. I'm going to continue soaking him for another day or so, then sand and polish the high spots. Thanks for looking!

Dammit finkdaddy...a love that fat bugger! I always love that sideways Tang and one of
my favorites is the pair that Tikibeat did a while back. Now I can add this one. Love it.
Now i gotta go back to football.

Nice one Finky! That fat little bastard looks like me! Keep soaking him and add some coffee at the end to sharpen the color. I likee! I'll trade you for something?

Thanks Conga! Yeah, he was fun to do. I might try another one tomorrow too, or maybe I'll do another hook, or a fish, or maybe...

Thanks for the advice Gman, I'll try the coffee. I can't stand to drink the awful stuff, so maybe this will be a better use for it. Of course I'll trade you, but after this, everyone, no more trades! I'm laid off from work and I need the money!

Nice Tang, it already looks old, from the picture it looks like ivory or whale tooth.

Waiting for tools.... What dija get? Sounds like more great art is on the way.
