WOW!! That looks great! Is that a bit of torch work in the mouth? And are the teeth stained a natural stain or is that just the color of the wood? ... Very nice work!

Thanks Capt, and yes you are correct. The mouth is torched and then stained, I really like the way it comes out with that combination. The teeth are just the color of the wood in this picture but I did put a coat of natural stain on it that darkens it up just the slightest bit, I like the contrast. Thanks again for the kind words.

Thanks surfintiki! Much appreciated.

I like the finish as well. The urethane gives him a nice shine

Thanks surfintiki, I am far from graduation but I do appreciate the compliment.

I hear much insight on carving "deeper" and that is exactly what I am trying to do. I understand the concept but the challenge appears when the chisels are in hand.

I have no doubt that I will eventually figure it out but until then this is what I have to offer

Again thanks for the comps and thanks for looking!!

You've just reached a new level. IMO your best effort yet. I believe we are all waiting to see you finish this one.
