    Here are some photos of my latest wood spirit / green man carving. I have included a photo of the wood I started with , it`s a piece of basswood (12" L x 6" W x 3" thick) and where I am now with the carving. It has taken a couple weeks so far because of work and I have to make a decision on how to finish the bottom half. When I finish the carving I will post some photos on the wood spirit thread , I hope some of you other guys who carve will post some photos in the WIP Thread as you progress on your latest projects.

    You definitely have a talent dear. Just thinking here, but what about using that Grandson as an inspiration. Bear with me here...

    Newborns have an aged wise look about them most times; as well as that fresh newborn innocent look. I wonder if you could try to capture that in the eyes of your next project? Maybe the wisps of hair could be wisps of twigs with sparse leaves.

    You are GOOD. I have no talent like you; wish I did. I don't know where you get what comes into your minds eye when you do these, just thought I'd throw out a suggestion to ponder.

    Please keep posting them. I do enjoy them!

    Thats coming along quite nicely Dan. It looks like you have a lot of patients going for your there. What do you do when you make a mistake? Do you just wing it and get creative or try and blend it in , or balance it out on the other side?

    That`s a good question , I draw freehand on the wood so mistakes are easier to cover. If both sides were drawn from patterns mistakes would appear worse and harder to fix so in my opnion freehand is the way to go. Then you have screw ups that end up as interesting fire wood. LOL !!!!
