Mark Strom Posted July 3, 2011 Report Share Posted July 3, 2011 Its been awhile so here is the update with a brief description: The secondary throat feathers have been drawn in and are being carved. These are not as strongly undercut nor as long as those just under the beak. The beak has been shaped to an almost finished state. I have carved around the eye to further define the head. A piece of painters taped has been cut to the exact shape of the eye and colored with a magic marker and white pencil. This will help define the character of the raven and gives me a better idea of how the finished bird will look. At this point the majority of the raven has been roughed in and the bird defined. My next decision is whether or not to include a detailed wing complete with feathers and how many feathers to carve under the throat feathers. Both of these details could completely alter the impression the carving presents. Mark www.stromcarver.com Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
