Hot damn!

Love this guy!

He's either grittin' his teeth in a snarl or got a shit eatin' grin!

Either way, a ton of character in 'em!

And as always, I love the textured carve on him.

Have fun at the show, and don't drink too many beers!

I agree, I too really like the textured carve. Do you mind if I ask how you do that?? Any reply or redirection would be appreciated.

Thanks
