« Part 38: Leg Vise Chop Carving Update II Part 39 of My First Workbench series Part 40: Leg Vise Chop Carving Finished »

Here’s the latest update. I scrapped the flames as too difficult for my skills/tools.

Got all the dragons roughed in…now I can work on refining shapes and background consistency.

WOW! That turned out nice! I almost wouldn’t smooth out the rough spots too much. I’m kinda digging the texture it gives to the carving.

Thanks! Now that I think about it, the textured background almost looks like flames…may have to experiment here….

Yes it does. As I was reading the post and looking at the pic, I’m thinking “Scrapped the flames? I see them right there.” Then I realized it was the texture from the carving. I think you could easily make that work for you.

I vote to keep the “flames” in the background too. Looking good there, Steve!
