GROG not get to check this thread since this morning----whoo what a ride! Sneaky, I bet you don't know how much entertainment that gave the rest of TC.

Don't be emabarrassed by your carvings. Since you're a PROFESSIONAL ARTIST, you have a very good attitude towards criticism, and as you are well aware, you gotta start somewhere.


Thanks again. I appreciate your comments, advice, and wit.

Thanks also to all those who privately encouraged me to continue. I've cleaned up the Moai-Hei-makau piece a bit with the Black and Decker dremel tool knock-off I just got. I don't have any attachments made for wood yet so it's still not that much improved. A few hours work and it's just a BIT smoother and more defined. I need to take my shopping lists I got from the carving threads and pick up a few basic implements, then after playing with the new toys perhaps I'll post again.

I don't know what thread the BK comment came from or what context it was made in. I saw a comment by Humuhumu in the other relevant thread that I could see some good points in. What I took from HH's comment, and how I'm choosing to interpret the quote from BK is that I shouldn't post pictures unless I've made some progress in my carving.
I shouldn't keep bumping my thread with new pix just to hear "Nice work" or encouragement etc. I have to admit that for first posts I am probably guilty of posting too many pix and comments. I was enjoying the encouraging words etc. but I didn't need to post so frequently. In the future I will TRY to avoid posting a pic. or update to my thread unless I feel a piece will show progress in honing my skills, has to do with a question I need answered/advice I need given, or unless I feel a piece is good enough that posting it will somehow add to the quality of the thread due to it kicking butt. The last reason I just posted may never happen.

edited to add this about criticism:

Someone who is about to admonish another must realize within himself five qualities before doing so [that he may be able to say], thus:

"In due season will I speak, not out of season. In truth I will speak, not in falsehood. Gently will I speak, not harshly. To his profit will I speak, not to his loss. With kindly intent will I speak, not in anger."

-"Vinaya Pitaka," translated by F.S. Woodward

I guess it's probably good to reel things in a little if that what the people in charge are
asking for. It's also likely that I post more pics of a particular piece than might be
necessary. Hang in there and keep plucking away, I know I will.

BK's official comment about this whole thing is in keeping with the immature, emotionally retarded, elementary school "your-mama-joke" vibe around this topic lately: (blank, bored stare...) (poot...)

Hey Sneak!
Your right, this thread really does suck.
I feel right at home here.
