        A little something right!

        Here ya go, Garry,

        Top arrow: Your lower eye lid is actually carved slightly deeper then the upper eye lid!

        Second arrow: The high point of the cheekbone falls in the face before the face tucks behind the feathers of the hat! So his cheekbone is the highest feature in the face area.

        Third arrow: The neck has a wonderful slight curve into the under chin area. This connects the neck, chin and head instead of the head 'sitting' on top of a detached neck! He's not an oval sitting on top of a cylinder.

        Fourth arrow: The curve of his robe matches the curve of his lower neck ... the neck shape continues under the fabric. This gives the neck form, shape and solidity.

        These are a few of the little details that push this into a great carving instead of just a 'nice carving'.

        But ... if you would only ...

        Bottom arrow: A little texturing or patterning would separate the two fabric areas and add importance to the neck line.

                Just an update,

                My first feathers , not like Marks but their cut not burnt. Added some detail and since I love to highlight the natural wood flow, I uses the lines of the curly maple to add to the blanket.

                Now Susan I know I have yet to do anything to the sash , but I will I have something very special in mind for it if I can work it out correctly . Ice Cream

                I lowered the shoulder as it tapered to high I may have to do more but I am not sure yet.

                        I was hoping to finish this project today , but didn't happen so for those interested I thought you might like to see where this is headed.

                        Sitting bull is actually part of a frame for a 1870's photo by Edward S. Curtis. The marble plate image is a copy of a real photo of a Souix war party in the late 1800's . It was taken in the badlands.

                        I have the frame to finish and then I have to attach the carving but this is close to what it will be finished.

                        The frame is Spanish Cedar.
