Default Free chainsaw patterns

Being aretired Drafting/Gaphics teacher, I like to have 2D drawings to relate to for proportion. I have een developing these into a format that includes resource photos and internet resources where available.

You can find them at http://www.chainsawcarve.ca

My latest is based on the Realistic Squirrel in Woodcarving Illustrated Tutorials.

Hey, Rusty,
Nice useful patterns and I enjoyed your website. Just looked at 194 interesting photos of quality carvings! Thanks for both!

Thanks Mike,
Thank you for the comment. I am in awe of your realistic eagles. I am working on an "easy eagle" pattern based on the eagle that I have already posted. I will leave the tail attached and the legs filled between. I am struggling with a good way for a beginning carver to "feather" the wings. Any suggestions?

Any pics of chainsaw feathering you can send? russkubara@shaw.ca

Thanks Brian,
I have been using several methods for developing the patterns. My goal is to reduce the details to essentials. I do my sketches on acetate over a blank grid, scan them, capture them in Photoshop for placement in Adobe InDesign desktop publishing.

I place the scanned images into Indesign on a layer below everything so that the grid is overlayed. I then add images of finished carvings or resource photos. I output to a PDF and do a screen capture to make the thumbnail for posting.

Sounds like a lot of steps but it does not take me long as I am proficient in these progams.

One 3D modeling program that is easy to learn is Google Sketchup (its free) . It will make 2D views for you. Unfortunately it would not be useful for chainsaw patterns because of irregular surfaces.
