Guilty! I would say most of my carvings have been inspired be others work, pictures or patterns. While my carving may have my own spen on it I am using a book, dvd, or some resource. I may use a nose from one source, hair from another and eyes from a third, they are all things I learnd from some source. I have the greatest respect for those who can create form and function from their own imadjination. I lack that talent.
