Very realistic. I'd be tempted to (TRY) staining the turtle green and black and the bear
darker brown than the background, but I'm not sure if would improve it, or just ruin the feel of it.
Have you ever done any coloring like that?
It's kind of fun to do the impossible
Yes on a few pieces but very few only if the client wants it. I have airbrushed a few on bowls an Vases to enhance the wood
Great job Roy, it is good to see other carvers here. Carving fur is something that I've never done, I must give it a try sometime. I look forward to see the whole piece.

Beautiful rendering. That turtle looks like lunch for the bear!
I too have pieces that the patrons do not want publicly shown. I always took this as a matter of course but, have wondered if other members get these requests. Some folks like their custom pieces to be theirs unless they choose to share them. I have learned to always ask permission before posting .
