Carved Lettering and Automata

I have carved this lettering for an intended re-working of my website. The lettering is also part of an automata construction to be a feature of the website.

Lovely lettering and the scene is charming. I really like the smiling cat and the grumpy Elf or Dwarf. They make such a cute little scene within the scene.

Fantastic craftsmanship and beautifully subtle variety of translucent stains and paint application.

Re: Carved Lettering and Automata

No way of telling exactly because I could only work on it intermittently over a period. These progress photos cover the period from initial rough sketch to video of the automata.

Photo 1 – 18-12-2016
Photo 2 – 16-01-2017
Photo 3 – 27-04-2017
