I like it better I think. Definitely enhances the break between the parts and makes the figure pop out a bit more. Interesting to see the difference anyway, thanks for being brave and taking the plunge
I really like it! And having a piece of Toni's work (my family crest) you are getting advice from the best!!
God and family, the rest is icing on the cake.
I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place.

Thanks Bob...I'm still not sure that I like it better?
Ryan...Yeah...I took a chance knowing that I could mess it up...I like to keep from covering up the wood as much as possible...But, I didn't like the way the line between the background and the hair seem to blend together...Now, It does give that definitely break line...I guess it's just a matter of taste....I got some mix reviews within my family...but over all most liked it.
Thanks Jonathan....I appreciate your comment...I'm fairly new to relief carving, so right now, it is a learning experience for me.

another like it, it shows the depth of detail in your carving better in my eyes
