This Genie is brilliant work mijaba!

Posture is accurate, and the face is intense.

Your Fedora is approved for background shots!

Hook blades rock!

thanks McTiki and Laojia-- i took some more off the chin to "feminize" her a bit more- little more detail around the lips. I'm not sure if I want to paint or stain her. I just soaked her in wood hardener so I don't have to redo her face again. I've chopped her lips and eyelids off so many times I could have made a horror movie!!! She should be *bulletproof* by morning.

That Genie is amazing! The face is increadibly realistic for being so small. I wish I could do something like that. If you want my opinion, I wouldn't stain or paint the body, but that's just what I like.

Great Job!

Nice carves mijaba, the hair on the Genie is very convincing - I thought it was fiber attached to the wood.

Up in the gecko discussion you mentioned "wood hardener" - what is that? (and don't tell me it's Viagra! )

My few cents worth is that it's great. Like Finkster says, incredible detail and
lifelike, especially at that size. Top notch little gal.

Thanks guys! Took awhile to finish him, but here he is. I threw a little gold fingernail polish on his eyes-- makes 'em "pop" a little. And a secret compartment for stashing things(not so secret anymore)

and a tiki characature of me-- I call him "mini me"
