      Very nice Denny, and larger than most of my stuff. Great looking fellow and pose. Now an igloo, Eskimo, ice, etc. You could keep a scene going for years.

          Great looking bear. I'm always surprised to see how big they really are.

                      Thanks guys . It was fun carving . Joe, im wonderingtoo if the snout is at its best but cant quite see what it needs. A study piece would help. Does it just need to be more slenderized?

                          something told me that a polar bear isnt necessarily snow white, i think i have seen some on tv documentary where they looked a tad dingy. so i mixed in a scant dab of yellow into the white paint to get this color. being color blind doesnt help at times like this though.

                            Denny,
                            Nice bear and good call on the color.

                            Have you considered making a transparency for a go by. I carve from sketch’s or photographs. I use the copier function on a printer to size it to the wood I have. Then print on a transparency sheet. You can hold it up to your work and reach behind with a pencil to mark your cuts.
