Wow Lynn, this is a fantastic looking figure, I had commented previously about the skin tones on white eagle fron June last year!!! I can't wait to see him painted, just wish we could watch you do it. You have put some amazing detail into this one , should be a real stunner when he,s done . Keep up the good work .Trev
I have to say this is an incredible piece.The one thing about all of it is the part I wish I had been able to watch. The wood burning. I just don't know how to do it. Maybe it is the pin I use. I never get clean clear lines. Great piece. Ginny
What can I say, except, you have another winner there! I agree with the other folks - he should look stunning when painted up. What general guidelines do you go by when deciding where to burn? All the best-Ron B.
Aside from the color separation I only burn the deepest cuts and then very lightly. The fur on his robe was torched with a butane flame to burn off all the fuzz from the stoning wheel.
So much detail, all impressively done. I am most interested in how you got the quill of the feathers so crisp and smooth, looks like a real feather. We are all anxiously awaiting a new tutorial...hope you have time to do one sometime. I know your paint will really breath life into this fella....just incredible...I can't get over that fine detailing...jealousy is rearing its head here...(maybe it is envy, hard to tell). BTW good luck on the auction)
That fur is incredible! Well, so is the rest of the piece, but the fur really stands out.
