Diggin' the progress!

If you want to take things another step further, don't be afraid to bust out the chainsaw & cut the mouth deep instead of just burning it for effect. Gives it a depth that I really like. I just rough chainsaw it, and then use a gouge to remove the excess & give it a nice "scalloped" look.

Just a friendly suggestion.

But once again, your progress is great!

Finally got around to putting a coat of poly on this beast, the poly darkened it all just a bit which I think gave it a pretty cool look...

and a friend decided to add a little jewelry while i was away...its a string of rib bones...lol...

Very nice. Good job knockin' the mouth out. I dig it.
