Chainsaw carved turkey... gobble gobble..

in #art3 years ago

Here is a piece I did for a very good customer who has many of my pieces from over the years.
A lifesize wild turkey...JPEG_1430211229125_-843942130.jpg

I used the airbrush for the earth tones and acrylic for the red, white and blue brushed on.

This is right after saw work was done, 100% chainsaw

Here we are right after very little refining and some airbrushed earth tones.

The red, white and blue really made it stand out, I was very happy with the end result.

So was my client, winner!

After about a year, the turkey dried. It was a big piece so it cracked or checked as we call it. All my work valued over $500 comes with a warranty so he was brought in. Little bit of glue, some self made shims and he was good as new. Pictured below...FB_IMG_1526552187853.jpg
Don't mind the facebook watermark, I couldn't find the picture on my smartphone.

You are very talented. Many chainsaw carved animals I see look cartoonist but this is realistic. Good work!

Thank you @boboxer realistic is definitely difficult and I don't always nail it, I was proud of this one. The whimsical cartoon-ish pieces sell faster though I notice

Now a days Turkey business is growing up.

Once again amazing work you do! The details of these pieces you've shared on your blog have been very precise! Great stuff!!
