Absolutely beautiful carving. However the knots kinda look like bullet holes :-)

Good stuff, Eli. You’ve got the touch. How did you get the glint in the pupil?

Really good work. I spent part of this afternoon carving a couple faces; ‘course you wouldn’t know that’s what they were unless I told you. Your work is inspirational.

MarktheWoodButcher, about the glint in the pupil – I drilled the cornea area and left the pupil at the same height level as the eyeball. The result is that the cornea is black by the shadow and the pupil is bright like the color of the wood.
I wrote a blog here in the Ljcs about eye carving techniques. For more information click here: Eye Carving Techniques.

whitewulf, I can see the resemble to Robert Blake, What causes the statue to be similar to Robert Blake is the lower jaw bones, but they are varied in the nose, mouth, eyes. . Nice to compare and it gives me an idea to open a discussion to whom the sculpture is more similar among famous people :)

Kinda looks like the guy I saw last week, or the week before, but definitely looks like a great carving. You
are getting better with each carving and making them better. I do not know how to explain the technique
or why, but to me each one seems to be a little more like a real person.

Thanks everyone for the encouraging comments. To be honest, my desire for perfection which is an advantageous in achieving this result but on the other hand, I see the points which I didn’t achieve.
My awareness about the above mentioned and your comments are helping me to improve my woodcarvings from one project to another as Bluepine38 wrote. Again, thank you everyone . jumbojack, he looks like JFK, especially when you look on his left side hairdo but the face is different.

Dear jony, my son, Thanks for your comment and please tell your lovely wife that I didn’t know Benicio Del Toro but after looking at “google photos”, I find several parameters which he looks like the sculpture :).
