Default New Little Guy

Well the wife and daughter are away for the weekend and I had yesterday off so no honey-doo for me this weekend. I had been working on drawing a little generic pattern and yesterday I cut this out as I wanted to see if the pattern as I had it would work on the bandsaw. I didn't envision it being this skinny as this was to be a test for a larger piece. I cut it out and man was he skinny. I sat down and just started carving it and I decided halfway through to make it a farmer. I think it turned out ok. He is about 4 inches tall without the base. The blank was cut out of a 2 x2 basswood and it was carved on the base. Finished in acrylics, BLO and satin lacquer. Thanks for looking as always!

Corey

Corey, in the past you claimed to be able to only copy published designs, well my friend you have now proved that you no longer need outside input, the farmer is just beautiful, one day you ARE going to make a profitable new career out of carving.

I always enjoy your carvings, they are just so perfect. What a wonderful talent you have there. Next time leave a red rag in his back pocket. Just a thought.

Hey Corey, another fine piece you have carved. The last picture (of the sketch) reminds me of Harry. LOL. No eye holes in the bag, so he doesn't know where he is going.
