  • Sea captain

    I used the pattern by Dylan Goodson to carve this sea captain. Felt hard to add so many details on the figure.
    The wood is white pine and about nine inches tall.
    What could I improve for the next one?

        If you can do something that good with pine, I bet you'll really knock it out of the park with basswood!!

                  Nice work. Hard to say for sure from photos but he looks a bit flat to me, chest and back.

                    Nice carving and details, Grillo. No suggestions from here.

                      Nice carving, Grillo. He looks a little "blocky" to me; I'd make the clothes follow his anatomy a bit more. Check the proportions of the arms and legs...I think the arms look short in relation to the body length, and on the legs if you raise the crotch it would serve to lengthen the legs and thin them out a bit.

                      Keep up the good work!

                        If I carved something that nice, I would be very pleased with myself, I like it!

                          Thanks Arthur,
                          I really appreciate these observations. Anatomy is something I'll always struggled. Definitely have room for improvement in this area.

                            Excellent carving! Those details, particularly the folds and creases in the clothing, really make the piece!
