I posted my first effort a couple of weeks ago in draftboard, and since then I’ve been refining the design (trying to cut out a couple of layers, working on the contour of the eyebrows, and making an acrylic stand) and waiting for materials to arrive. I finally sat down and cut the final product yesterday - one in cedar ply, and one in Baltic birch.
The birch came prefinished so I didn’t do any post-production finishing (aside from gluing it together), but I oiled the cedar to bring out the wood grain more. Next time I’ll pay more attention to the direction of the grain, but I don’t think it looks too bad
I think it looks awesome. Your skills are evolving quickly. I can’t wait to see what you make next. Please continue to share.
These are amazing. I like the cedar the best. Excellent work!!!
This looks great. Love the layering!
those look cool.
i wonder what it would look like if you strategically mixed woods to accentuate certain parts.
Thank you! The cedar is definitely my favourite.
Turned out great, nice work!
It’s beautiful – great job!
Wow! The cedar is gorgeous!
I love that people keep coming up with such new and creative designs. Nice!
Same illustration, but now as a puzzle
