I have carved a few things with my chainsaw, and figured I might as well give a good lookin hot rod style tiki a try. I carved it tonight and wasnt realy happy how it came out, but I gues I can do another one tommorow. Anyone in here carved with a chainsaw? its pretty cool and easy. Suggestions for the tiki would be apreciated.

I did 3 16' Tikis once. they are in Myrtle Beach somewhere. I really wish I had some pictures Did it all with a chainsaw. Infact I have done alot of chain saw work with Foam, which is actually harder to do as its very delicate. One wrong move and its all gone. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/funny.gif[/img] I actually make my living as a sculptor.

Anyway I would define the the Eyes a bit more. When ever you look at a sculpt of a face on afny sort the Eyes are the most important. It will make or break the sculpt. We naturally look at the Eyes withwithout any thought to it, it's instinct I guess.

Also, the best way to approach things like this are doing layers. Draw what you want on the front and a side veiw helps. The figure hwere your highest and your lowest points are. Take everything down to your highest point and redraw as you go down. Once you have reached that level do it again with the next lowest point and so on.
This is called Blocking it out. Once you have done so you'll be able to see exactly what you need to finish and make it really stand out. Try and keep as much emotion and excitement in the faces as you can. Make your detail and stylistic lines into actual shapes and grooves....

This of course basic once you have the feel you can just do them without much thought.

I think all you need to do with that thing to make it look more like you want is to make your cuts by taking deeper wedge-shaped sections rather than trying to cut straight lines.

I have three tiki barstools carved in Hawaii back in the '50s... below is a pic of one of them:

WOW!

cutting the spokes with a chainsaw, I mean such fine detail...

Did you use some kind of ultra miniature dremel-based chansaw?

I AM impressed.

Theres a cool tool you might be interested in. Its a Chainsaw chain on a wheel. It bolts to a 4.5" grinder.
Its made specifically for carving. Check it out I'll post some info if I can later.
I know Harbour freight sells one, A good name brand one that is. They are not cheap but they kick ass.

There are some really nasty stone carving power tools out there too but they are kinda scarey and you gotta be Hercules to control some of them. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/funny.gif[/img]
