Hi, everybody! It is the first work in such style – a gift for the friend, the aficionado of dogs. With pleasure and attention I will listen to criticism.
By the way, last time I did boxes for colors, here and a definitive variant.

Looks good. I will admit though, I saw the picture and I was amazed at how accurately you had carved that white dog. :)

Outstanding job for an outstanding dog. I love dogs, obviously (see left). I’ve done a fair amount of burning and this is well done. If you’re begging for criticism, you might consider giving the eyes a bit of a glint with unburned wood. I actually prefer it the way it is but it might give you a bit more realism if that’s what you’re after. You probably know this already but my recommendation to burners is to treat yourself to a nice burner tool. I really fought with a cheap one and once I got a good one, I really saw what I was missing. Excellent work!

Great artwork. You have captured the dogs image really well. By the way that’s a pretty good looking dog, but I am having trouble figuring out what breed or mix it is. What type of dog is it?

Nice carving of the dog statue. It looks so real. Nice scrollwork too.

By the way, it is a not burning-out, but fretwork
