Postby kcortese » Fri Nov 07, 2008 11:29 am

Thanks for the reply, but this is just an outline.

I will put in a lot of detail and shading if I ever get back to it. Maybe later today.

Did some more work on this piece today. Have to fix the goofy monkey hand and fringe on the chaps. Some more shading needed. Not done yet.

Hi kcortese,

It is very interesting work. I must tell you honestly, that the top one is great. The top one forces my eyes to look longer and imagine. The bottom one is very good too but too easy to my eyes. It is going to be a great piece when finished!

all the best

Finished the bull rider today. Don't want to overwork the piece. It measures at 5"x7".

Thank you Barb, you are very kind.

You make me feel that the time I spend on my work isn't a waste.

I'll be doing many bull riders to sell at the PBR event this summer. I need to create at least 50 - 75 pieces, they sell like hot cakes.

I'll post each piece when I start one. Will start another this afternoon, and post it also. I need to buy more wood, am on my last piece.

Please let me know what you think of them.

"Waste"? I would say NOT! You are very talented! Your attention to detail and your technique to execute is very impressive to me! I cannot even imagine the steady hand and forethought that this type of work would require. As reading up on your type of art, I now realize that there is no going back, if a mistake is made. No erasing, no painting over...and as I am sure there are various techniques to overcome error, I know that skill level and detail reflect significantly in this type of work. And, IMO, you are very talented.
I look forward to your Bull riders, and any others you would like to share.

When you sketch on paper and need to erace, you would use a rubber eracer. When you need to erace on wood, you use sandpaper (which I use a lot).

You can correct details as long as it's not carved in or burnt too deep. Each time you touch the pen to the wood, anything can happen.

Kind of like working with water colors. I hated working with water colors, I threw away every watercolor I ever did. I admire artists who specialize in it.

Thank you for the kind reply.
