Thanks Seeks, benella, and Benz!!!!

A little work on the face, pretty rough! Don't mind the black eyeliner, those were my outlines to make the sockets for the shells!

Nice Freak, I can see him coming out more. He
is definitely going to be offbeat and cool.

Seeks, G- much appreciated!!

Here is some more work. I'm still not done shaping the nose but I'm excited I got a string through it without breaking it! I'm not sure why, I'm looking at PNG pictures for the nose but it is looking more like George Washington's?? I'm also in the process of doing new eyes. I kept looking at it and it looked liked they need to be sunken in more?

George Washington had wooden teeth not a wooden nose.

Coming along nice.

Haven't been here in a few days, Looking Excellent as Expected T-Freak. It just boggles my mind to think you have SO Much talent right from the start like this. I think the Ancients are Strong in you my friend, BE forewarned and prepare yourself.
They're gonna have Fun with you!

Thanks JohnnyP!

Benz, I think the ancients are thinking.....what the hell is this guy doing???

First off I know it kind of looks like a monkey right now! I stained it to try to control the cracks because it looked liked it worked on my last one. It will not even be that color, much darker (hopefully)?

Started to set the eyes, worked on the ears, and got half of a tusk in his nose.

G, you were right. I need another one. Thanks!!

Craig-O,

Yep, you need another tusk...but we new that. The little guy is comig along nicely. Do you still feel as though you are learning new stuff every day? Remember to think. Know what you want see and then think about the best tool to use and the best way to get there. Think, plan, execute - then fix where you went wrong, remember what happened and then begin the process again. If you are aware of what happens and why, you will always be growing as a carver. I see great things coming from you and I love watching these pieces unfold. Please keep going.

-G$

Thanks Seeks!

Benz, I talked to the ancients tonight and they said my carvings aren't up to speed. Maybe in a couple of years so we're going to back to Benz for now!

Gman, yes I'm still learning a bunch! Every style is different in many ways from facial features, stance, body style and so on. My goal is to try many Polynesian styles and then do them again and try to make them better than the first attempt the next go around, hopefully?

Thanks guys
