    Re: Depth in high relief

    Can't wait to see this Pierre. Sounds like it will be excellent. Glad to see you are still finding a way to stay connected to carving even if you can't hoist the tools yourself.

    Best wishes for Christmas and the New Year.

    Cheers

    You did, didn't you. You're more perceptive than I was for sure.

    Hi Pierre!

    Here you go, just like I said...one door closed, and now, it sounds like another is opening. That's great! Look forward to reading the tutorial.

    Still waiting for Lat to help with the demo part. He's talking about my doing a Master's Mural Carving video and manual early in '08. The hands would be his, but the techniques and self made specialty tools are mine.
    We're hoping it will slow down enough to do a decent photo show and tell for the forum right after Christmas. I have a number of photos already but we do need more technique photos to go with the verbals.

    Oh, well. My son and daughter both agree (overriding the old man) that since these two mural carvings depict literally every aspect of perspective and depth management, it should be a tutorial, not a quick description. So........ We'll try to find the original photography, add some visual technique and methodolgy pictures and post it in the Tutorial forum.
    I'm guessing that this will take a few days since my son will have to fit it in between studio work.
    Patience. It will be worth it to the novices.

    Putting up the tree, decorating and gift wrapping took all of her time yesterday. She'll do some typing for me this afternoon. Sorry.

    I'll do a breif mothodology explanation when My Daughter ahs had her breakfast and can type for me. I can see that this needs to be a photographic tutorial, so I'm going to take some time this week and have my son do the demo and have my Daughter take the picures and type for me.
    Back a bit later.

    And........... the final of the main carving and one more example.




    And this piece that will have it's own explanation.






    Back soon with explanations. And don't let the color put you off. Stained or painted, the techniques are the same.
    I need a hand break. One handed typing is no fun!

    Re: Depth in high relief

    Perhaps I can add a bit here?
    First look at the following carvings and then I'll begin a second explanatory post. These are in very deep multi-level relief, and there is a definite optical science to achieving similar effects wihtout having to chisel so deeply.

    This first one is the entire 5' x 18' carving with our crew in front. This piece is 6" thick, back to front. I may have posted this here some time ago. Can't remember..... OGS (Old Guy Syndrome)



    The following are segment pictures of this piece.

    Quote "(FYI - Do you know where the term Rule of Thumb originated? Until the mid to late 1800's a man had the legal right to beat his wife with a stick as long as it was no thicker then his thumb. If charges were brought against him all he had to do was bring the stick to court to prove his innocence.)"
