Craig,

I think you are on the right track. Look carefully at the pics I sent you. I think you might need to open up the area between his legs and keep the wide stance/hips. Also, work to round the butt and improve the transition from his head to his back/shoulders (use the Tang pics for reference). If you take wood from the neck and chin area do it slowly and carfully.

-G

Hi Craig,

"the deeper it is, the better it'll look". That's what I think.
I agree with you with the eyes, round them. If it is not as deep as you wanted you'll cut deeper and re-round them.
The beginning is very good, you can't do anything wrong with the piece you carved.

P.S: nice tatoo

Good luck,

Benjamin.

Thanks for the input G & Benjamin! I did some more work today, mainly digging out more between the legs. I started rounding out the eyes, but I still think I should go a little deeper. I'm just afraid because of the cracks, so I'm going slow w/ that.

Hey Craig,

He looks great! Dude, you are a natural. Keep thinking and small chipping. This is a brain excercise. You'll work it all out. Fun isn't it?

-G

I agree with G-,
you're going closer and closer to the funniest parts of the work.

Benjamin.

I officially think my "tang" has the biggest ass & smallest wiener!!!














I don't think I should go any deeper on the eyes w/ the crack like that, I'm afraid it's going to take that whole piece out????

I take it's time for a new sanding disc when it starts burning like that????

Yep, get a new disc

You can narrow his a$$ up a bit by working the lower thighs up into the lower glutes. He looks kinda square down there. He's coming along nicely. Watch that crack - both of them

Hi TF1...been meaning to get back to your carving. When I looked at him, I thought nice stance...he's getting some character...kinda relaxed and confident. If we were in New York, we'd say he has 'moxie'.

Won't comment on his other ahh....err attributes.

How's he doing anyhow? It's been awhile.

R.

Thanks

Here is a little bit more. I scooped in some new ears, went deeper on the eyes and mouth, and worked on the body.











now looking at this picture I noticed I need to get the right eye better at the ridge line!!!! I still need to transition the hips into the butt.

Craig

Thanks G! I might need some advice on the hips and butt. I'm looking at one of the pictures you sent me but I'm still struggling with how to do it. I'm trying to make it have a big scoop at the upper thigh and the scoop down towards the feet so it has a middle ridge, but I don't know how to work it in the backside??? I don't think I explained it that great but you might know what picture I'm talking about?

Craig

Craig-O,

Look at these thighs and legs. Hopefully they can help you on your way. They are all different ways at getting to the same result. Calves, thighs, and a butt. If not, give me a call...or..... Airtran has daily non-stops to Tampa - we'll get him fixed up!

Well I went back at it and starting working on the butt and this is what I got so far.... I shaved the top down a bunch to get rid of that big hump and tried smoothing it the hips. still experimenting though. thanks for the pix G! those made me go work on it again.
