    I like it. You’ve made so much progress I hate to CC but you know me.

    As always I cannot know what you’re looking for and I don’t do caricatures so my perspective maybe different. To my eye the face is still too flat when seen in profile you don’t see the other eyebrow. The eyes should be set deeper and angle back, and cheeks are behind the nose.

      Hi Joe , with all the different Names ( Colors ) I don't know if I want to Admire it or Eat It . Ha,Ha. I would Paint over your Burning Lines , they have done their Job adding Definition and when Painted the Shadows from the Burning will show . I feel the Dark Lines take away not Add . Still doing good keep your Mind Working . Merle

            Nice one, Joe. Looks like he's deep in thought

              Ed, Thank you, I sometimes think I'm getting too deep with the eyes, These pictures I tried to turn the face more into the camera, maybe that causes the face to look flat. Seen from the side shouldn't you only see one eyebrow? Thanks for the constructive ideas

              Merle, Thank you, I'll try that on the next one

              Herb, Marks & Ron Thanks for the considerate comments

                  So do I . I'm trying a relief carving, of a person with their head turned a bit. Thought I was finished, but after looking at the picture think I've got more work to do.

                  Thanks for taking a look, and the nice comment
