I enjoy looking at your carved sculptures and I am happy to see that you have added a lady to your sculpture family. :) Faces, they say are incredibly difficult to sculpt. (I am a stick figure kind of artist). Personally, I find the strong bone structures of Native American faces/profiles so incredibly beautiful that your work intrigues me very much. Keep making more sculptures.. I love them and they make me smile in a peaceful sort of way.

Very good, no one starts out like Jordan, it takes time, and practice and stick-to-itiveness. It sure sounds to me like you got it all. Just keep at it. You are doing very good work.

Micael, I like the “Little Feather”. You succeed to bring out a lot of expression, no need to fix or improve something. It is completed. For your information, I learnt here from mpounders about another way to carve eyes which I was not aware of it when I wrote the blog of “eye carving techniques”. Look at his sculpture at http://lumberjocks.com/projects/37523. You will have a chance to experience all eye carving techniques in your following projects.
