Cheers Guys for all the comps.
Dhtiki- Not familiar with the term 8bit -tiki but it sounds cool

Conga- The fierce guy is a Haka mug by Gecko, Here it is in green. Sweeeet


Latest Moai Commission carv'd out of a 200 x 200 Kilmdried cypress bollard and stained
Aged teak. This stuff is pretty smelly and I had to walk away from it a few times but comes up a treat and has a fantastic grain.




Cheers

OK....I thought it might be a mug
Really nice new Moai as well....working on another one of those myself. He looks
a bit like yours...better make some changes.
Always an interesting thread!

I just meant that your textured pieces have kind of a pixellated or 8-bit computer graphics look to them. I really like that.

Also - cool Moai!

Awesome moai. I'd love to be to work with some kiln dried logs. Very interesting to see that first moai pic where you have the major features blocked out.

Good lord, that's gorgeous. How far, grit-wise, do you go with sanding? That's some smooth stuff...

Another Ash Watongan, 3 coats of dark mahogany stain and varnish which I dilute 50% with turps. Log had a nice twist in it which really added to the character of this one.

Sometimes it is keeping it simple, straight lines, smooth curves & a nice piece of wood
and a clear idea of what you are creating, to make exceptional art.

I think you did that here.

I see to many examples on TC of overly thought out, over detailed carvings
that are technically great, but have no real vision or soul, more a showcase of honed skills
rather then focused art.
