Poseidon - Carving Final Details


The carving of the face is completed. Here we see the refinement of the wind. With the shape just right, there is a lot of undercutting to create the strong shadows and visually separate the wind from the concave background.

The undercutting is done and the background surface is cleaned up.

To create the effect of a deeper, darker background once the finish is applied, the concave background is stippled.

Here is a close up of the stippling effect on the background.

Next up, carving the letters on the banner that will go over the carving.

The lettering is done and here is the banner temporarily clamped to the carving to get a good look at how it will go together.
