Cool carvings man! You got some talent! Just a hobby or do you do this professionally? How'd the Taimane mannequin turn out?

Very nice. How did you get started in carving?

the Taimane marionette is still as far as you see in the slide show this is really hard for me because I dont want it to look insulting.
how I got started carving wood is their was a parrot picture in a coloring book so I cut it out and traced the outline on to a piece of wood and was going to hang that 1/4" thick bird on my wall then I decided I should add another piece of wood to both sides and I kept doing this until I had a 3D bird shape with rough 1/4" stair steps then I was thinking it would look better if I tried to sand those steps down. then I was like WOW this looks just like a bird maybe Ill get my dremmel and carve an eye on it then feathers then I painted it and bamo!!! I just finished my first wood carving completely by mistake this bird carving is in the video its a green parrot sitting on a wooden table with a bunch of other projects. anyway now that I have a bunch of carvings under my belt people keep telling me I should sell them and I may one day but right now I prefer to make things and give them away to people who inspire me . almost all the carvings in this slide show have been given away :) Im hopeing that somehow when people look at them on their shelf they will remember me in a good way
