    Thats it, I aint going to show one of my wood carvings after seeing these two wood spirits.

    Way to go Dale you in a league of your own. Not only is the carving cool but setting it in a piece of rough wood. What is the wood that you have used there?

    Sheesh i got lots to learn. Inspirational for sure.

    Rob, don't be discouraged. Check out Mark Gargnac on the web.
    We all start out wanting to carve, then we learn how. I found Mark the closest to how I wanted to carve. I am not an artist and in no way could draw a face if I tried. The wood is cottowood bark, you can find a ton of it on ebay. I love working with it for the type of carvings I like to do.

    Those are fantastic Dale.

    You do a really good job of capturing character in their faces and also the way you both use the existing wood shapes and transition in/out of the carving is quite nicely done.

    The perception of perfection is perfectly clear to everyone else
