Welcome to Lumberjocks. There is nothing wrong with carving ugly – in fact there is a lengthy tradition of ugly carvings in folk art from cultures around the world. From Mediaeval gargoyles adorning European cathedrals to Chinese and Japanese temple guardian figures; from African tribal masks to Native American totem poles. Keep carving.
