Here are some projects that I finished up this week. It has been one of the most productive of the year. I have been in such a great mood this week and my muse seems to understand my schedule.
Batman and Boba Fett
I am looking to keep the magic going and have started to carve again tonight. On the kitchen table is another character from the comic The Realm. I am also finishing some pieces for my friend’s book called Voracious. I am also looking to do ROM and possibly one other random character. Have an awesome week!!!!
Finished up a couple of commission pieces this week. I did a 6″ Boba Fett and a 6″ Batman. I have done Batman too many times to count but this is maybe my 2nd or 3rd Boba Fett. I can notice changes in my process in carving Boba Fett and even how I approach the painting. So for this is the one that I like the best but I look forward to giving him another shot down the road. The lighting was pretty poor on Boba Fett but it was late and I was just trying to get a semi-decent photo.
Here is my pull list for this week. There are less books which is good because it gives me more time to catch up on other books I want to read. I just restarted reading Atomic Robo and I have also started Superior Spider-Man (which is amazing so far!). SO here are the books in no particular order:
After taking time off of podcasts and limiting my beer intake after hours I have found a renewed energy towards carving. I have been working slowly on some commissions and today I hit it heavy. This is actually the first time in quite a while that I did work during the day so that my kids could be there. It was my daughter who really took an interest. She started to copy what I was drawing on the wood and even asked to grab hold of a gouge and give it a shot. It was such a rewarding experience to spend time with her in that capacity. While she was sketching her Boba Fett helmet I was busy knocking out another Batman. Here are some photos of that.
Here is the knife that I was using today. It is a Flexcut Tri-Jack Pro. I have had this knife for probably 4 years. It came sharp and remains sharp. It has proved to be a great knife for my needs and is much more portable than any of my other tools.
Here is a picture of the Batman after paint and stain.
Also here is a picture of the Boba Fett I am working on and the sketch my daughter did on another block of wood. She also did all of the sanding on the carved one.
Like I said before, a super fun day with all of the kids and a great time doing some wood carving with my daughter.
