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.
If you are going to make something nice, make it with a statement, use quality an do it right the first time
Rob, don't be discouraged. Check out Mark Gargnac on the web. http://www.gargacsoriginals.com
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.
Beautiful work, Dale. You make that bark come alive!
Thank you guys for the feedback. I appreciate it.
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
