Nice caving. i am impressed by many of the wildlife carvers detail work. I have a friend that did national commotions with his bird carvings. You would think they could just fly away they looked so alive.
its case of experience and practise but i keep trying and hoping i improve but i learn a lot from American sites such as decoy and wildlife carving sites
It is important to get good materials such as paints and good brushes airbrush etc.so much is spoilt be cheap paints and brushes
and think the worse thing is using a gloss varnish on the subject matter it never looks good and it gives a very unnatural look
Puppet carvers never use gloss on the subject as it detracts from the look and gives a glare when he light catches it which detracts from the subject and the puppet performance
some people tend to specialise in different carvings Gloops tends to carve dogs does a pretty good job of it .I try waterfowl mainly although have carved other items but mainly its about having fun . Danger is of course fooling your self it looks good not many people are straight forward and brutal with the truth
