howzit Turbo,

if you don't try to out do your last tiki or even try another style because your scared the you WILL NOT get betta! I can do a tiki and it looks like i made one befor...uh uh just look at the Maori tiki above....thats the first time I ever tried it!! no BS! I feel ok about it but I did betta than I thought I would do. But still not happy...thats the key to my motivation "not being satisfied that thats the best you can do"

anyways,looks like Tangaroa(fertility God) paid your house a visit! I'm happy for you! don't you have 2 already?....I'm gonna start callin YOU Tangaroa!!

whats up with the war chants? now you gotta let me check that out wen your done!

Alohaz

Kept em' cold, though they would self destruct after each day of use. Honeymoon with da Mrs. Boo 13 years ago. Hanalei. 30days in a house on da bay. Long for da day! (G.D.it!! Bax is rubbin off on me!!!) See you soon! Got the itch.

Gecko,
Man, your tikis are highest quality. My in-laws are heading to Maui next month for vacation. I wish they would get over to Oahu to see your stuff...
(and maybe buy a present for their son-in-law.)

Well this thread is way off tiki carving now, and my sister and I only posted a few of the non-debris, evolving shots (3 in fact), but here we go.

To carve yer very own tiki
Step 1-Contact a total stranger on another continent and ask for a full shot of the tiki you plan on trying to duplicate for a fellow tiki fan that bestowed kind words on you.
Step 2- Get to work. Draw a crummy sketch on the shorter than hoped for log (but the only one with the somewhat correct width to height dimensions)


Step 3- Get permission (by no verbal dissention) to take artistic liberties with the design of the tiki's derriere.


Step 4-Take evidence shot with dog, niece, tiki in progress, and troublemaking daughter.


It has away to go, but the body is now close to finished and the headdress is moving along.
