    Nice. I don’t have the skill for realistic faces myself (I’m just getting into wood spirit faces). Is the face meant to be someone in particular?

      hello, ah,,well i think spirit faces are a good start. you can learn everything you need for faces on them, plus they make a lot fun, since you can “bend the rules” every way you like to 🙂 … yes, this is a portrait of a real person, i like doing true portraits, and hope to become much better 🙂 thanks for commenting.

    Hi Doris. Don’t see you on the WCI site anymore. Love the latest bust you just completed. You did a good job of producing a mature mail….and its of a real person too!
    I recently did a clay sculpturing course and I recall seeing you do some as well in past post. I’m hoping the clay work will help with my wood carving. Your faces are getting more refined with each carving. Nicely done. I’ll have to check out the resource you referred too on drawing faces.

      hi patrick, yes it has been quite a while that we have spoken together at wci. i left when the desaster happened, i actually wrote a long post explaining my leaving and a goodby to all friends there, but obvioulsy the admins did not like my post and immediately removed it. so only few know whhy i left… the good is, this resulted in the joint blog with mark, and about this i could not be happier 🙂

      patrick, the clay is a wonderful tool for learning carving faces. it needs some time to get used to the fact that you can add so things are never “stable” as in a woodcarving, but exploring shapes and forms is so easy in clay, i am sure you will find the benefit too 🙂

      thanks for your nice words on my portrait, yes i learn more and more with each, as we do all, and it shows… though, there is always room for improvement …
