  • 3 hour and 15 minute Pelican....

    Earlier this week I carved the 2 hour Pelican from the current issue of WCI, and when I posted pictures one of the members ( Gleber) suggested that if the pelican was standing on wharf pilings it would make for a better overall look. Even though I'm quite a stubborn old coot I do appreciate good advice and decided to do another following Gleber's suggestion. I really like the way this one turned out, even though I still can't carve one of these in 2 hours........
    The middle picture shows both carvings ( I did add a bit of lettering to the original one )

    Very cute Soggy, The girl must be the live bait. She sure enough attracted that nice fella.
    If I took the time to fix all my mistakes, I wouldn,t have time to make new ones.

              How can I not hit the "Like" button when you accepted my suggestion, and executed it! Now, he looks like he is truly in his natural environment. I agree with Merle - the eyes are very expressive. Nice job!

                Lovely work Soggy! The pilings do add interest and you did an excellent job on them.

                      Nicely done on both of them. Thanks for posting since it will help me as I carve mine. I did a practice 1.5 incher to get an understanding of the "technique" and just starting a larger one. I'm slow and figure if I can do mine in a day...that would be good.

                      No need to rush...too old.

                        Very cute carvings, Wayne! The second one is a definite improvement. The extra hour and 15 minutes paid off!
