I got this guy painted over the weekend. He’s from a roughout by Vicki Bishop and is about 12 inches tall. The hands in the pocket and the long coat made it easier to carve than some designs. But it also challenges you on how to add realism and interest to a simple coat. He was fun to carve! Thanks for looking!

Another winner there Mike. You did a great job on the folds in the and the coloration really makes it. Well done!
