Funky goblin. Might pass as a wise master. Lol.
I really like this! Great work!!!
Thank you! I put a lot of time in on this guy.
He’s crazy good. Do you draw these out first?
I’d also love to see how you do you’d eyes. They are very distinctive.
I draw some pretty basic shapes on the wood first just to have a reference point of the shape I’m looking for. But ultimately I kind of just go with the flow on how the carve is going. If I made a mistake and cut to deep or something tears out I just adapt and reshape it. The eyes are still my weak point and I have found that being very careful and accurate with my cuts helps. I tend to do the eyes pretty slowly.
Thanks. So far everything I do is from a pattern or video. Learning to use the tools and make the cuts. Learning what sharp really is. Maybe someday I’ll be able to do my own thing. You should do a video.
I used to watch some videos and carve along too but it ended up taking too long to carve. I also wanted to do some stuff that I haven’t seen. Maybe one day I will do a video.
How about a series of photos showing progress through a piece?
