There's a definite improvement just in those two mate At some times the quality of work on here can feal a bit overwhelming, but everyone was a beginner one day. The important things are to try and make each one better than the last, but most importantly have fun!

My latest attempt. Its from a section of downed telephone pole i think. My friend brought me the wood and I guess he had it sitting outside the whole time. The reason i say this is that once i took the wood inside to dry it split like crazy. Oh well it was good practice. Peace bros...........

I like your styles and its fun in the beginning discovering effects you can get . On the burnt parts you have a lot of heavy carbon spots. I use a wisk broom to knock off the big clumps and then I take a toothbrush size wire brush from the hardware store and lightly brush the carbon until I get the tones I want . Its kinda fun playing around with the shading . And if you took too much off and you feel its too light , burn it again . Have fun , Ray
