WIP Another mountain lion. Carving and embossing

Recommended Posts

Mountain lion, version 2. Based on previous errors.

I decided to describe the process - maybe someone will be useful.

First I do the preparation of the leather insert. 4 layers of veg tan leather 7 oz = 11 mm.

I form the insert with a scalpel and knives for wood carving.
After that I process it with the finish (I'm use Appretto Mild).

Next I Transfer the drawing to the leather.

Stretch the leather on the insert.

Using bevelers, I create a bas-relief.

Now I'm making wool.

Carving and embossing complete. Now my mountain lion dries up before further painting.DSC_0612_3.jpg

The mountains and the clouds turned out badly. But I already bought a "Pictorial Carving Finesse" by Al Stohlman today and I hope to master it :)

WOW! Just WOW! That is a great job. Lion, mountains and clouds are all great.

Just one thought on the mountains ... maybe the mountains which are further away (the mountains closest to the mountain lion) should have less detail. As they are, the closer mountains and the further away mountains all have the same, whereas in reality the further away something is, less detail can be easily seen.

Disclaimer: I am not an artist's bootlace. Not much good at carving either, just an observation. :rockon:

@Rockoboy, thank you for compliment. And special thanks for remark/advice about mountains. 

I began to train in the embossing of mountains, and your advice is valuable to me.
