        Nice ED, that you post the images as you work up to the "finale." Never disappointing...

          Form and proportions are really good Ed. I still have problems the flow of body form. Always seems to come out deformed. That’s why I do toppers.

            Lots of twists and turns in this one but, knock on wood so far so good.

                      Nice flow Ed. She is shaping up nicely. The rib cage area is looking very good. Great work!

                        As I follow your project, Ed, I think to myself, "Gee, I've never carved a female nude!" Then I dig through the memories and, yes there was one - a Scout neckerchief slide- 1" x 3" - her body discreetly hidden when placed on a neckerchief:

                          The transparency sheets keep me on course and access to 24 photos of the pose from different angles is a huge help.

                            Pallin,

                            Found myself wonder if this made you popular with your fellow scouts? I’m sure it was at least a conversation starter.

                            My second carving was a nude then I hadn’t done one for awhile until the two commissioned pieces last year. I have to admit I enjoy carving the female form.

                            My first nude carving, my wife named her Windy. Based on a drawing done by a friend in high school.

                              Haha - My adult son asked to borrow the neckerchief slides to show to scouts & parents of his troop. He tactfully removed this one from the collection when he showed them. I don't think I ever wore it at a Scout event.
