That's a very impressive carving. I thought your hobbit was pretty good, but this one is better. You made a beautiful carving and you did a very nice job painting it. Well Done!
I went to a woodcarving show a few months ago and it was apparent that many of the carvers with displays didn't have painting skills to match their carving skills. A truly gifted carver that I spoke to told me that "so many of them, quit carving before the project is finished". That extra attention to detail makes a big difference.
