I'm a "Santa Man" at this point. It appears that most of what I like is from Christmas. Santa, Angels, Nativity... although I've only carved three of the Santa ornaments, and am currently on my fourth.
I'm inspired by all carving, I think. I can appreciate (now more than ever) what goes into carving. I particularly like the work of Cipa, Joclyn, and Embrey
I'd like to learn more about the "concept" while I work on getting better on the practical. I want to learn more about the "thinking" part of getting a carving started, how to refine a shape. So far, I'm using the 'step by step' tutorials, which are working just fine, but I need to develop a 'style' and 'look' of my own.
...and I want it NOW!
I have to throw in my thanks to these boards and those who participate, as well. These are essential parts of my learning process!!
