Impressive carving mate.

Jomoco, I used a couple of Picasso's bulls as my reference pics. Thanks for noting that.

We all stand on the shoulders of great men Champ.

Picasso was indeed a master of bulls and the bull ring.

Keep up the great work mate.

Re: Bull!...finished

Why thank you kind sir! I lurked in the shadows for a long time before getting up the nerve to show any of my work.
The guys on here are sound tho, and they'll be honest about the carvings too.
I really like the bull, the style reminded me of some pics I saved from somewhere a while ago,can't tell you who made them unfortunately but they're awesome, I'll try find em.

Re: Bull!...finished

Check these out, they're kind of like rough sawn and unfinished but it's the looseness of style I find appealing, not sanded to death, but the cuts that are there are meant to be there, hard to describe what I'm on about. I reckon you've got some of that going on, hence keep doing what you're doing.
