Spent the day finishing up the body, adding the braids and the claw necklace. Also added the shield and lance and turned the base. This is going to be one impressive carving even if I do say so myself. I used a emery wheel to texture the fur on the necklace then burnt the edges where the wheel couldn't go. Should be done with the carving tomorrow and then it's to the paint table. Once it's painted and varnished the feather work will start. There are a couple more photos in the Gallery.
