Stonewall Jackson - Painted
Hopefully the dust over at WCI is starting to settle so I think it's safe to go ahead and post the photos of my latest effort. Anyway.......
I think this grim looking character turned out pretty good. He actually looks a lot better in 3D than in the photos as the darkness of the hat hides a lot. I tried something different on the brass buttons by painting a little detail on their surface. You'll have to tell me whether that worked or not. I also added some twisted wire braid on his hat to give a little more color up there. I'm not really sure whether that is accurate or not but it does add a bit to the effect so I'll go with it. I made a new base for him as the other was just a little too large.
There are more photos in the Gallery and your comments are always welcome and appreciated.
If you look at the top of the column to the right you will see I've added a little note about what appears on this Blog. While it might sound a little threatening it's not meant to be. I'm a very accommodating kind of fella so if you have a question or request about a carving, video, photo or post just ask and I'll make sure my response is to your liking. Thanks
