I'm really satisfied with this one as once he's painted I think he will be a classic and an example of my best work. And you'right....that skull really sets the piece off. Will have to put that on my video list as a number of you expressed an interest in carving one.
He's an impressive piece, standing 20" including the base. The stone also gives his some heft which will surprise anyone picking him up. I omitted the fluffy feathers that are normally at the base of each feather but that is okay as in researching I came across a number of war bonnets which didn't have them. Oh....and do a Google image search of "war bonnet" and see who's dominating the web these days!!!
Anway, some more photos in the gallery and your comments are always welcome and appreciated.

Opps! Only the last 6 minutes were originally posted! Sorry! Still trying to figure out all these new changes. Here is the complete version. Still a MPEG4.
This video segment was uploaded using MPEG4 vs. the AVI format I was using earlier. For some reason the new computer dropped the DVIX compression option from my video program. Anyway, I hope it works for you okay. Although I hate to ask, let me know if there is any problem.

I’ve decided to carve a bust of a Buffalo Soldier for this series. As figures of Blacks are few and far between it should be a good challenge. In this part we change our generic cowboy head into the shape we can use for our soldier. Hopefully, my comments about the various features of Blacks and their difference from other races will not result in Al Sharpton nor Jesse Jackson showing up at my shop door complaining about my being racist. Just in case I’d better hide those white sheets I keep around to cover works in process!

I've used my Turkey Brand flour sack before and as it's always been a crowd pleasure thought I'd do it again. It's all done freehand with a square tipped brush for the lettering and just a small brush for the turkey.
There are quite a few photos in the associated album so check him out and let me know what you think. Always appreciate your comments.
