Is your master serving a life term in San Quentin by any chance…..? He looks a little bit like Charles Manson. Very realistic, yet at the same time slightly unnerving. Nice job.

Thank you very much.
Well my Master is no alive any more – sadly.
Yes to develop a feel what wood to use and what shape to cut is a very important,
I belive even more important then the great ability to cut it right.

Exceptional work! You have not only rendered your master in wood but captured his essence. The eyes are amazing, I really feel like I am looking into the eyes of a living person, not just an image captured in a bunch pieces of wood. I would feel truly blessed to have taught someone as talented as you.

DaytonB, thank you for your comment.
Well that is exactly what I wanted to achive – to make wood alive – to transforme it in to a something else which does represent real charectiristics of a person. Thank you, I am very happy to hear that :)
