Mountain Man

I got a nice piece of oak from the local saw mill as a gift, and since I never carved oak so far, and it is said to be very hard wood, i thought to make things easier i follow on this carving a tutorial. So this mountain man is designed by Mark Gagnac, and he had a tutorial how to carve him which I followed, well for a while at least.... I must say, despite the hardness of oak, it is a wonderful wood to carve. I definitely like this a lot, and will carve more in oak ...

8cm wide, 12cm high, 4cm deep. oak, oiled, and waxed.
