Default "Basket Case"

This is the first scene that I have done in a while. I have been spending a lot of time reading, studying post by others and working to improve my skills in the area of detail. I have been using alot of study aids and asking permission to use post as study guides to improve my skill, while trying to develop "My Own Style"

"Basket Case" sums up a lot for me in this carving. It is the subject of this carving, the nick name of this biker and what I think a lot of us wanna be carvers become trying to learn how to do some of the things that you master carvers do. I want to say thanks to all of you who take the time to comment, share, and explain things to all of us. There are far too many great people on the forum to list, who unselfishly give of their skill and time to help those of us who struggle from time to time. Thanks to all.

Please feel free to comment or make suggestions.

Safe Carving and God Bless,

Mark

Showing old to new carvings shows your improvement with the details. It's fun to add and see it come more alive--Its alive its alive--I talk to my carvings as I go along. I did alot of Streetman cowboys when I first started and began adding details like a W on pants pocket and that made me want to add more and more. Makes you CRAZY in a good way!! You are well on the way Mark my good friend.
Curt

It seems the hog is the basket case?? Looks like the gas tank on the floor and hes got the handlebars or another part in his hand? Plus hes got the look,well guess I'll just put her back together now cause soon I want to feel the air in my face and my red bandana poping my right wrist.

Im enjoying seeing your carvings come more together my friend!! Keep up this nice work!!!

Thanks for sharing this kool biker.

Forrest

In your other post, I wasn't sure which one was the new one because you inverted the two guys in the first photo. And I liked them both equally.

I like both styles...

But now I can see that if this is the new one in the scene, you are going more in the flat plane style, right?

Curt,
Thanks for viewing and commenting. I just thought of something, we should introduce your biker girl to "Basket Case" they might hit it off. I have a question for you. Do your carvings ever talk back? Thanks for viewing.

Safe Carving and God Bless,

Mark

Fred,
Thanks for viewing. I'd love to see a pic of your biker if you still have it. I'm thinking of a whole series of biker and biker related stuff, don't know if it will happen but got a lot of ideas going on right now.

Safe Carving and God Bless,

Mark
