Hi all,
I've been lurking here for awhile now, admiring all the amazing carvings and learning alot from everyone. I have been carving on and off for years but have been doing a bit more recently so I thought I'd post some stuff here. I can't decide whether to post stuff chronologically (even if i could remember the order) so I'll just stick some stuff up when I work out how to do pictures and see what you think.
Cheers,
G

Thanks guys!
McTiki- the eyes on the new one are looking interesting!
Captain - at least you broke the horse and not your tiki... ;]
Keylo - 'nother one coming up...
Amate - your fantastic outdoor pics have inspired me to take some tikis and a camera next time I leave the smoke!

I know it's all about the progress shots here so I'll try and oblige even though this guy was finished over a year ago-


After the sketching, beginning to rough him out-




refining the arms and lips-


the teeth-


at this point I must have got carried away carving and forgot to keep taking pics, so here's the first coat of wax-


phew! more later guys, thanks for looking...

Mess, please tell me you didn't just rough that last one out using a box cutter. Please. Excellent!

Imagine real tools in this persons hands.

Thanks Clarita!

Mctiki - I had a chisel and a gouge when I did him as well!
I do use the stanley knife alot though, you can do quite a bit with it. I'm really into the PNG stuff and alot of that was made just with sharpened stones, bone chisels and shells so any metal tools are a bonus when you think about it like that. Thanks for your encouragement.

OK here's a few shots of the finished guy-


do a little twirl for the ladies and gents-




A bit of Tiki ambience-


Mahalo,
G

Thanks Seek, it's a nickname someone gave me about 10 years ago...

A couple of years ago I bought some pen blanks so could try out different woods quickly and cheaply. I got a box of 30, 5 each of cherry, beech, oak, sapele, iroko and ash for a tenner (that would be something like $12 for most of you guys?). Anyway it turned out to be a good investment even though I've only used 5 or 6 of them two years later!

here's one in ash-





Tough wood to carve but finishes really well...





thanks for looking,
