  • Smiley

    Meet Smiley...I used the basic Pete LeClair cutout used in his book on carving faces, and stepped out to design my own dude. Smiley is what came out of the wood!

    This is the first carving I really tried with a wide smile and teeth, and I am getting better at my eyes and ears. I have a bit of cleanup to do on him, and he will be ready for the paint table!

    Let me know what you think, and if I could improve on anything!

          Overall it is a fine caricature carving, these are what I enjoy doing.======

          The eyes look fine, maybe a bit more creature & bag lines.
          With the ears, I try to keep my ear's length between the brow line and tip of the nose, with some small variances. You might do some practicing of the "Y"/"Anthrax" part on the inter-area of the ear.

          TBox, take this as someone who so dammed good that he has spent the last week & a half trying to get his carved ears to look like something other than cauliflower. When I get finished with the ears I'm going to jumping back on the eyes.

          When My creative well goes dry, I figure it is because it time for some more practice stix

            I like smiling caricatures, and he has a big smile. I can see LeClair's influence with the big nose, big ears, & big eyes. Good job.

                Nice carving, Tbox, and always like those very "expressive" carvings.

                    It just beats me how you guys get SO MUCH detail into something so small. He looks real good to me.
