Here are some updated pics. The face is roughed out and I am starting to tie everything together.


Had to rough out the feet to finish the legs.



In some areas the colorful wood, from the rot and bug damage, is starting to show through.

I would never have guessed this dude was hidden in that nasty old log. Well done.

Coming along really nice! A rotted old log? That's some talent. Thanks for the progress posts.

Having a hard time with this one. Was really trying not to go through on the legs, but it just wasn't giving me the image I am seeing. Decided to punch through and now it is starting to look the way I want it to. I haven't touched the head, with the exception of the braids, since my last post. Should be able to start working my way up now.

I had my nephew pose with this guy for size reference.



Starting to make some progress. Was really slow going at first, but it is starting to take shape. Leaving the braids big allow me to add depth and detail later on if I choose.

Starting to zero in on one side of the face. Once I get one side where I want it, then I will make the other side match.




Once I get the face where I want it, then I will finish the body and feet, then off to sanding. Still probably a month out.

This carving is turning out to have a lot of depth, or layers. Can't wait to see what the finished product looks like.......patience.....patience......patience.....aaaargh!
