  • "Big Santa"

    I completed painting this guy last night and i think he turned out pretty good. Not as good as the original by Harold Enlow, but I knew that wasn't very likely. But I still enjoy carving his rough outs and I learn quite a bit from each one and hopefully something will rub off one of these days. I did open his eyes up a bit, although they are still a little squinty. I was trying a technique that Vic Hood mentioned for making a happy eye. At least I'm happy! Thanks for looking!

        Superb one there, Mike. I particularly love the beard and hair, lots of movement in them. They flow in a great pattern.

            Amazing work. Great Job, boy do I have a ways to go....

            I am a little disturbed at the question mark next to my name on Santa's list though.

                That sure is a nice Santa Mike. He looks happy just like you wanted.

                  "but I knew that wasn't very likely", I have to say bull. It is always an enjoyment to look at your carvings with all the detail.

                    At least your on the list! I’m a little worried now about those aspen logs I’d been asking for. My wife said don’t worry Christmas is coming. But now I’m not so sure.

                      Really nice job nice accents in the beard. Not wanting to sound inappropriate. But how big is Big Santa.

                        We are talking quality workmanship here. I saved a copy to my images for inspiration on future Santas. Your beard carving is realistic, curves are done so well, the fur fringe on cap and coat was a lot of work, but done so well. This is one exceptional Santa, really well done! Earl
