Congratulations on the first commission & the obvious improvement in photo quality! New Camera?
Anyways, looks great!

Keep at it!

here's some newer stuff. My daughter took these pics on her phone, so the quality is kinda poor.
LilGuy

MezzoDaddy-My daughter became very uncooperative and would not shoot the back of this, but it's very cool, Like a tetris puzzle
Frontand side
Pineapplehead- no back, same reason. I actually only like the mouth on this one- it shows a hint of progress:

Grandpa tiki, no back (or side) same reason

Cannibal, no side shot- same reason. SEE if I pay her phone bill! HAH!

here's "Big Frog" as opposed to the little one I did months ago. About 4 hrs work, red oak. I think for now, that's going to be my wood of choice (since I have a boat load of it)
