Re: Grizzly carving in yellow cedar

Your grizzly really is soft and fluffy looking, in yet, muscular, just as they are in the nature. I thought he looked great unfinished but now that you have added the "color" he looks more realistic. Looks great. Are you going to highlight the face like a person would a painting? By allowing more of the light brown to show through on high points to give a sheen from the sun etc. It will draw attention to the face that way too. Just a thought on that.

Glad you are back to work sculpting!

I'm thinking I might do a bit of carving on the face to get some features.
The burned areas won't be bare: so that won't be the colour; I'm going to paint the (grizzly) colours to finish off the work. What might be too small for carving could end up just detailed by paint.

You may change your mind before we're finished. Once the details come and then the paint it might look a bit more ominous!

Re: Grizzly carving in yellow cedar



My daughter lives three streets from our street and last week she took several photos from her backyard into the playground which is open to her yard. The colour will show when I paint from that group of photos she sent me. Mostly we just have black bears in the yard on occasion, but the grizzlies are driving the black bears out.
