Your Tiki is looking good so far, Mailman. Keep on carving!

What do you not like about it?!

I'd say to use chisels to widen/deepen your lines, and clean up the symmetry a bit in some places. It's a good start with lots more potential! Keep going!!

GO DEEP!! That log should be able to handle some deep detail. One tool that is used alot is the angle grinder with a sanding pad. If you have access to one I suggest using that. Good luck.
