An incredible attention to detail on the pick and shovel...that is your trademark, accuracy down to the grooves and flanges on a shovel. That is what makes your carvings so remarkable, they blur the line between caricature and realistic, and I think they are more to the realistic side of the spectrum. I can't imagine what else you have in plan for this guy, but I bet we aren't through with him yet, the base will probably be something spectacular..like a pile of coal or something different than what we usually see.
Congratulations on your 300th video post... and yes I've seen every one! They just get better and better. Thanks again Lynn & Judy... great work.
The figure looks great Lynn.
I keep trying to post a comment and I keep getting booted. I love this guy. I too carved a Coal miner along with ya but continued by myself. I too have a shovel in one hand but I put a lunch bucket in the other. Think I like yours better. I will change mine to a pick. Thanks for all you and Judy do for us. Ginny
