Spotted Elk

Here's another that's been setting on the bench for quite a while.  Except for the completion of the lance and the addition of some feathers  he's complete.  Unfortunately, him and Quint seem to have developed an attachment and just can't bring themselves to migrate over to the paint area.  

This one also stands around 12" tall with the walnut base and as most of my Indians should be pretty colorful once painted.  I really like doing these busts, especially with the addition of the shields and other attachments.  The sky is the limit with how they can be painted and the result is always striking.  

Again, I look forward to your comments.


I might have posted a photo of this piece on Face Book but, as he's still setting on the work bench in his raw state maybe posting it here will get me out of my rut and get him painted.

He measures around 10-12 inches with the base and once painted should really be a nice one.  I did a little extra detail on his watch chain by adding a fob at the button-hole connection.

As you've probably noticed, my posts have been kind of rare lately.  Hopefully, once the year turns the urge to produce and publish will return.  In the meantime, I hope you like this cowpoke and I'll look forward to your comments as I always do.
