8ft x 4ft piece of birch plywood. Carving mostly with reciprocating carver plus some hand gouges.
Starting to cut:
Pig carcass drawn in red acrylic wash and black ink before carving begins. Dexter and Zuzu to scale.
After a few days worth of cutting, almost done:
Uncooperative Zuzu refuses to pose calmly. Does not share artist's enthusiasm for carving fake meat
Reciprocating carver or gouge, is a wrist/hand/arm saver.
