Good movie, great free hand for sure! You are doing very well.
Thank you, these tips are actually really helpful. The elephant is a gift for my gf, when i see her, if she likes it, I will post a pic Yesterday in the meanwhile I tried to go “free hand” and I did this 47 from “hitman”. That’s pine and not basswood. I didn’t notice much of a difference. It just seemed to have more knots. I still have to understand a lot of things, as you can see . (Image removed from quote.)
I think I've done enough with this little bear. I could give him some v-cuts for fur, but the wood grain kind of looks like fur anyway. I'm pretty happy as a first attempt(Image removed from quote.)(Image removed from quote.)
(gloves optional, but HIGHLY recommend for me)
I will have to seek guidance from a 'higher authority' about spending some money and joining in the fun whittling. She's asleep right now and if have fresh coffee ready for when she wakes I might stand a chance. If not, it will have to wait a bit, but I will join in with the SAK Whittling Club.Most of the wood around here is mesquite, so I will have to start harvesting some pieces and leave them laying around the house.
I just finished my whittling knife. i bought a recruit, i cut out the keyring ring, i cut the main blade to make it short and pointy and then i made some thick wooden scales to have better grip. I will let you know how it works
