The Study Stick Tutorial Part One - The Nose

The long awaited Study Stick Tutorial is now underway.  Part one of the tutorial "The Nose" is now available for download.  It takes you step by step through the process of carving a basic nose that can be used for caricature carvings or even semi-realistic pieces.  It is intended to give beginning carvers an easy-to-follow approach for carving a simple, yet highly detailed, nose.  I believe it will also be beneficial to more seasoned carvers by offering some new insights and techniques.  I will also keep things simple by using only a knife and a single 1/4" #9 palm gouge to do all of the carving.  This way, you won't have to run out and buy up a bunch of tools.  Unless of course you want a beautiful new knife manufactured by yours truly that is, wink wink!!!

Future additions to this tutorial will take you all the way from the nose to a finished face.  If you will carve along with me, you will end up with a step-by-step guide of how to carve a caricature face right there in your own possession, carved by your very own hand.  Pretty cool I think. 

Here's a peak at what we will be doing:

I hope you find this tutorial useful and enjoy carving along with me.  Get your knife sharp, your glove one, and follow the link below to get started.
