This is a woodburning I did. It is on Basswood, colored with pencils, and then finished it with a bit of tung oil.

All thoughts and suggestions are welcomed.

Quite the art piece, Very nice detail. I almost like the uncolored version a little better. But that’s just me.
Great Job.

Thanks Mr. Wizard.
When it comes to woodburning, folks are usually on one side of the fence or the other when it comes to color.
My wife likes them better not colored too. The reason I do try the color, is because folks usually dont color them~

I like to against the grain (pun intended!)

Thanks for the HONEST feedback~~~~I think it is becoming a lost art that people give honest opinions~~
Everybody is soooooo damn ‘sensitive’ these days! Thanks

Asking for honest criticism is the way to get it around here dust. Most folks try not to offend and scare off those who really enjoy what they do but lack some of the finer crastmanship shown around here. WTS .. i agree with the uncolored version but without the color i dont think his eye would pop like it does with color. Somethin to be said for that.

I can barely write my name using the wood burning iron i got. What kind of equipment do you use to burn with?

I see what your saying about the color emphasizing the eye more. The shop teacher I work with here at school does some wood burning and I’ve always thought it was something that I’d like to do.

I like your against the grain philosophy. I like the color, too. Nice work.

Roger and Daniel, thanks~
For Chuck and Chopper~
I got a couple of time consuming issues that have taken the forefront of my attention~~(Gotta love baby momma drama~)
As soon as I get this time consuming stuff (paperwork is a sonn~a~gun~) I will do a ‘blog’ (I have never done that, first time for everything!) that details processes and MY techniques~ (I may not do it right…but, I get it done)~~~

It isnt ‘that’ hard. If you are interested, go to your local Hobby Lobby and get a ‘Versa-tool’ wood burner… Maybe you can practice as I ‘blog’ about it…...
It will prolly be about 2 weeks or so before I have the time to sit and concentrate on it….but, I would be more than happy to share how I do it.

I will send you each an email once I get it going…......IF YOU ARE INTERESTED…..........if NOT please let me know…..I do not want to ‘waste’ time….if you do not really care to know…...but, I am more than willing to share if you are~
