This is a bit of a change for me. I do many animals, and lately I have done the Dragon Babies series, but this time I found a wonderful sketch done by <img src="http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/44296755/" alt="Dragon" />
This is such a detailed and perfect sketch that I was able to go right to the wood with the drawing with no changes or touch ups. Any differences between the two are due to the limits of the woods, or the wood carver.
This carving is mostly sycamore with 4 different colors with some ebony, maple, aspen, and yellow heart.
As always no paint or stain just clear urethane to protect and enhance the wood.
