Thought I would share another picture of all the carvings including the newest one to give everyone an idea of size comparison. This is a example of how you can work from a rough-out pattern and make minor modifications to the pattern to get a different look for each carving. All four carvings are from the same pattern with minor adjustments, which translates to the length of the cap. Then it becomes the carvers responsibility to carve the character hiding in the wood. On a side note one of the carvings I had made a mistake and removed everything I had carved thus far and started over. Any guess on which one it was?
