So here's what I've been working on the past few days. The first image is of two forms I started with, the piece on the left is 70% carved out, and the one on the right is at the point where I mark out the initial roots. The next images are of both pieces 90% completed. All I have left is to let dry, do some more detail cuts, then sand and sign.
I have several more applications drawn out in my sketch book, which I'll be working on once I complete these.
I really like where I'm going with these, the design is pretty time consuming but I think it's worth the effort.
