So four years ago, I started this crazy leather thing, and this is one of my best pieces so far.  What do you think?

That is very nicely done.  Very three dimensional.

Very nice indeed. You Sr. are an inspiration! Are the wrinkles in the face all modeling tools?

Yes they are.  Well, and some beveling in certain spots.

That looks really great!!  I couldn't help but notice some wrinkles in your leather, tho.  Could Popeye have been left out in the sun for a few decades too long?  Maybe some nourishment for the leather would work.  I think I'd try some spinach.

Seriously tho, looks awesome.

Damn, that is AWESOME!  It almost looks like you used some sort of form in behind the leather to get the 3-D effect!  How'd you achieve it?

There is quite a bit of embossing here, and some leather plugs so it will keep its shape.
