The New England Wood Carvers (NEWC.org) asked if I’d do a carving class for guys who take classes during the day and weekdays, and not another caricature carving like the common caricature carvers in the area. They wanted something different. This is what I came up with for doing anatomy, clothing, and a funny face; covering all the bases of carving elements. Unfortunately the class did not fill the minimum required. So it’s another carving with good intentions in a box, in a stash of similar boxes, with similar intentions.

He’s about 8 inches high, 8 1/2 with the base. His finish is a natural boiled linseed oil and acrylics for color. The hair is a base color of light grey and a dry brush of pure white. The towel needed more white than just a wash as the wash didn’t pop white enough. The pimple under the nose is a small knot in the wood. It makes a nice beauty mark. The jumbo size viagra pill was a nice idea from a guy in one of my carving classes and goes well with the old man’s grin.

The last picture shows my style of blocking out everything before rounding off doing the details. If anyone wants the pattern, just email me with an email address.

I admire you carvers. Nicely done. I doubt a class would help me much.
Shouldn’t there be a “5 hour energy” drink to go with the viagra. (-:
