Figurehead in progress



Stages 1-3. In these beginning stages I rough out the general form of the figure. I have drawn his general outline on the wood as a very rough guide.



Stages 4-5. Without stagnating the general movement, I begin to work out the detail.

Want to start carving? I use and recommend the following
tools, wood, and anatomy book:

cover
Tools From Amazon (these are identical to the tools that I learned with, and continue to use. They are not very expensive, but they hold a good edge. The short handles work much better when it comes to working out details. )

cover
More Tools from Amazon (I also use these tools)



Basswood from Rockler. This is the easiest wood to carve, by far. It holds the detail and is extremely soft.

A Photographic Anatomy Book From Amazon
