  • My very, very first animal burning...Stag's Head

    I've always turned down commissions for animals and people, and never really done much with them due to the intimidation factor, and the fact that when I've gotten started, I can tell after laying in a few lines it is not going to go well.

    Finally got some free time though and sat down with a friend of mine who does tattoos, and you wouldn't believe how similar burning is to tattooing. The laying out of line work and figuring out shading and such.

    Anyway, she gave me some AWESOME tips on perspective and getting away from outlining absolutely everything and learning to trust myself on shading in depth and lines and such.

    Anyway...here is the final product of that afternoon. Not perfect, but much, much, much better than I ever thought I could do.

    Next project....a human face....LOL....

                Your stag came out great. Just pretend the human face is another buck.

                    It looks incredible to me! I have a hard enough time just writing my name on a carving with a wood burner, let alone creating something. LOL! Very impressive.
