miraclechicken Posted May 9, 2014 Share Posted May 9, 2014 I would like to show how to free a gorilla trapped in a block of wood My first step is gathering pictures. I go to my paper files I've been collecting over some 45 years. Plus my favorite, my set of World Book encyclopedias. I can use google to supplement. Then I make my drawing of all sides/views. By the way, this is a 1:24 scale gorilla. Next I take my drawing and transfer it to the block of wood. Then I cut the side profile on my scroll saw. Now the fun begins, the carving. Here I've got his head carved. I start there and work my way down. Continuing down the body. Here he's completely emerged from the wood. Now I carve the hair into his body. Then paint him and he's finished. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
