This is carved from a Gerald Sears’ rough out and painted similar to his. I think mine kinda resembles Sam Elliot? Maybe not. Thanks for looking!

Another one of my favorites. You are so talented, I bet your family loves it when they receive one of your carvings as a gift.

I like his selection of roughouts. Even though I don’t carve roughouts. I might try one of his.
Hay, very nice job.

Holy Cow! Nice work! I try to make caricatures, but they’re 3” tall. I’m going to look into the tall stuff; I might have better luck.

The bigger the piece, the more details you can add to features and things.

Really great looking carving. My best carving so far has been a pretty good copy of firewood.

You might try a rough out. Instructors use these in classes so that students can focus on carving the details and they are are also useful for carvers who don’t own a band saw. I like carving them for fun as they are usually quick and easy. I spend a lot of time designing and planning original carvings and sometimes I just want to carve something!

How can anyone look at this and not smile.
Incredible job.
