  • WW2 GI and a Cowboy With a Nose for Trouble

    Recently finished up these two carvings. The cowboy was done a few carvings before the GI and I can see some improvement in my detail work. Big credit to Lynn O Doughty whom I've been following to help me improve and just because his work is very inspiring.

    Enjoy

    Nice job Capo, Lynn's videos are fun to follow, and you paid good attention.
    If I took the time to fix all my mistakes, I wouldn,t have time to make new ones.

      Very nice detail and caricature. I can hear the bark of the GI in my head.

            Great Detailing Suggestion , the dot for the Eyes take away from the Piece. I would make the Iris bigger , that would take away the Staring look. Stay with it you are doing good. Merle

              Nice work. I agree with Merle about the eyes on the GI. Once you get the eyes painted, use a toothpick and put a bit of Mauge Pauge or clear finger nail polish on the iris. It will reflect the light just like a real eye does.

                Thanks all for the kudos and suggestions. Will look at adjusting the eyes on the GI.
