Howzits!.... here are some progress pics of Tiki 3... again, I am totally open to any and ALL advice or tips you guys might want to offer.

I'm not sure if it's the Spanish palm wood or the fact that it was so old that makes it so inconsistent when carving.... or if it's just me being a newb Some areas are crazy brittle while other spots cut clean and smooth. My other frustration is that I can't go as deep as I would like too..

As you can see I made some changes from the first pic I posted. I'm still roughing it in and just starting to model it here and there. I still have a long ways to go but over all I'm digging where its heading

Just starting to remove material to define the mouth more before laying out and the starting the teeth.

This is the back section I mentioned earlier. That piece became the mask I posted.

I'll post the rest when he's completed. Mahalo!
