Don Quito - Part 3

Here is the next video.  We continue to block out the head and face.

Don Quixote - Part 3 from Out West Woodcarving Videos on Vimeo.


  1. I'm with far it looking good.

  2. I have a few pictures of a Don Quixote in my "want-to-carve" book, so this is on my to-do list.

    Nice job.

  3. Noses! For the first time I noticed that you curve the dental mound under the nose when you are establishing the bottom of the nose. You've probably been doing it all along, I just never noticed it until now. That is not something that is usually specifically pointed out. For the longest time I made the stop cut for the bottom of the nose and just cut straight up to it. This usually results in a nose that just sits on the face. I just recently start paying attention. The dental mound just under the nose is quite narrow and curved. Now, when roughing out the nose, I take the stop cut "around the curve" so to speak. This has improved my noses considerably. You might want to talk a little about the anatomy in this area as few instructors do.

    Keep up the good work.
