well, here's a few to start things off. i was getting cought up with resizing for a while, thinking they should show up smaller.
looking over all the great work in these threads has really inspired me to be thinking of carving/techniques/styles these last two days. i can see these forums will become a great new source for me. won't feel alone in it (as i have sometimes)when i know i can post 'in progress' shots anytime, get differant perspectives, advise, etc. maybe even meet and visit some of you in fl.
thanks for the warm welcome!

Welcome to TC! You have some really great tikis here! I like the teeth on those guys, how did you do that? Did you round out the wood and then paint them? I really like that second picture. It looks like the one on the right is saying to the other one, "Wait, stay completely still, if you don't move they won't see us!" Ha Ha You have a lot of nice detail in there. I like the moko on the left guy's face. Thanks for sharing, and I'm looking forward to seeing more!

Zaya

hey Zaya- thanks a lot! yea,i have to be carefull when those two get together! the teeth on that one are shell. i just recently took the time to gather a bucket full of the little critters. takes longer than i like! i just bore out a shallow root hole for each, then cement them into place. cool effect. like the idea of incorperating ocean objects into these guys.

Very nice....and I like those shell teeth. They look quite comfortable in their tropical fauna.

thanks everyone! what a supportive crowd! i regret not trying out tc afew yrs ago when first discovering this and kona kai. i only just recently started to actualy look into it. i do that a lot.
anyway, thanks all for the great words and warm welcome! i don't want to mislead anyone; some of the tikis in those shots are a couple of yrs old. i'll put some others up this evening, but can't wait to start the next to share some in progress.
Mctiki, the vip lounge is a great place for the texmex and drinks. i'd be thrilled to join you sometime. mahalo all!

Yeah it's too cold to carve today. I'm glad you were able to post your pictures. Welcome to TC, like they said, You'll fit right in around here. Just don't be bashful with the foto's shoot lots of progress shots and post'em all! Excellent tikis, how many have you carved so far? You aren't afraid to go deep and that's good, just don't go deep because you are unable to fix the bottoms of your lines. Looks real good. Love the teeth too. Got tiki? Got More? Got More Tiki?

wow i was just about to post a new one with pics and all, when my computer just went blank, then resarted. that's never happened before.
so i'll see if i can remember what i wrote.
thanks, Benz and Ben.
yea, i've been thinking about my depth latety. i've always liked a lot of depth in any 3-d art. but too much of any one thing-when not balanced with the other things-always stands out. so since i've got depth, i can focus on line and surface now. how many tikis? never really added them up till now. but i guess just under 20. doesn't seem like much! especially for the 5 yrs since i started. but i would go sometimes 6 mos without before. half that amount has been in this past year, though, without much slowing down in the future.
so here's some more tikis-
