How does it look ?
....I didn't really map out a design I just sorta went for it and came up with my next move as I went along so ....I understand that a sketch is a good thing ,I just figured I'd see what happens.

Pretty darn good for your first ones, looks like you are on the right track. Just remember Carve Deeper, Deep detail is Better detail.

Great rich warm colors in those, is that just the lighting, or are they really that color? What kind of wood, and stain?
Thanks.

part of it may be the lighting , but I used a stain/varnish on top that has a nice rich tobacco to it .
The wood ,I'm not sure it was in the firewood pile in the back yard but I think it's poplar...
I'll try to get the name off the can for ya ..

Nice stuff!! What is the size on these? I dont think there is anything wrong with creating as you go along... Thats how I do most of my carvings, BUT it is probably a good idea~ Once again, great work!

The coloring is very unique on these 2 pieces, I Love the splotchy black and the shine is cool too.

Those are amazing! How big are they and how did you get that color? Those are a great start.

Thanks everyone !
the TIKIS are between 7-8 inches ( I know ,thats HUGE! lol)
they are treated with a combo stain/varnish called "MINI WAX poly shades" ( pecan )
a kind word goes along way and I feel that if I keep going I'll get better with each one !

Very COOL, T'Ville!!! Is that frame something that you created as well, or a purchased item???
Suits it well, simple, but stylish.
