Another Bluegill

Seems like I'm stuck on Bluegills right now. :-) That's fine I like how variable the coloring is on them.

WIP Arctic Char carving 2

I should have more done by now but that darn March Madness is slowing me down. :-)

Most of it's to shape and smoothed out except for the tail. Need to finish up the jaw and put detail in the head. The fins are cut out but not shaped at all yet. It's getting there. Next time I update it should be ready for paint.

WIP Arctic Char carving

I'm starting on an Arctic Char 1/2 carving. It's actually about 5/8th, the fins stand out nicer just a bit away from the board behind it.

It's being carved from basswood and about 15" long. It's very rough right now but hopefully I can get it to shape and fins on it this weekend. This was enough for tonight.
