Looking good man. Next best tool? Don't know exactly what you have now. You said some straight chisels and mentioned details. So I might recommend a Dremel. If you get one that comes in a kit you will get some extra bits, sanding drums etc. that will help your detail work. A carbide burr would be great for detail and shaping work.

Looks good, but you might want to keep everything on one thread to make it easier to watch your progress.
Cheers.

I would say to go with a carving set from Flexcut, the Mallet set, it has 4 Large tools and is relatively inexpensive and Excellent quality. one source:

Very nice set of tiki's for just starting! The wood 20oz mallet is a nice price with that set. If you wanted to go polyurethane you can get a less expensive mallet here:
