    burned but not turned

    I know this might not go here as i didn't turn it. but it is round, and i did burn it. burned this for my youngest son. Just a little pratice piece to see if i can get better. I really need one of them fancy burners like Jim just got. Not sure what the wood is as i found it in a drawer,i think it was something my wife bought for me to do some burning years ago. found 2 of these pieces of wood so i'll do something on the other one soon. The pic i put on this was my interpretation of a pic i found on the interweb.no finish on it and don't think i will for this thanks
    Steve

    Wow, Steve, that's really good. I think there's a big future for you in burning.

    Now Jim don't even think about it. I havn't drawn anything in years, but always wanted to be a comic book artist. Just wasn't good enough. i guess that's why this burning fascinates me like it does. By the way thanks Cynitha and you Jim

    Don't fool yourself Steve,

    That's some pretty darn artistic burning you've done there. I can't draw a dot or a line, let alone anything like that.

    Good looking dragon there Steve. How old is your son?

    I know you're modest, but really, it looks great from where I'm sitting.

    Ken, Brent thanks i really think if i had something besides this cheap burner that i can't get my fingers all the way down to the end, as it's to hot. Maybe i could control the flow better. Ken this is my youngest son and he's 21. He's the one that is going to school to be a puter graphics person.

    So did you draw that on the wood in pencil first than burn it? Or did you just start off with the burner and draw it with that? Huh Huh I need to know
