Nice work BDan. There is definately a slickness/refinement to your designs. Love your fish - yep, you'll have a fan with Gman with those.

"The pineapple head thing was invented by Wayne Coombs originally, but ended up being copied by every coastal souvenir carver around"
Thanks for the input BK... I didn't know where the pineapple came from but strange that we (Wayne and I)have the same last name. I did them as a special request for the vet (he fixed my dog's broken leg in exchange...).
I'll check out those books though.

Really nice work. It's hard being a newbie to it all eh? Everybody had to start somewhere, and we learn as we go. Have fun, keep carving and posting as you study. There is great advice on that thread and all over this board. You've made a great start. I just bought a couple of those books myself. Love the vet trade, hope your pups doing well.
