This is a more complex carving than what I have posted in the past. It's always a challenge...no matter how complex.
OOPS! as you can see....I posted in reverse

Wow! very nice job Bailey. I absolutely love that style of art.

Can you give me some tips on drawing that type of artwork?
you know, like what type of artwork is it?
or maybe some practice routines that I can do to draw like that?

Anyway, any help or suggestions would be great, I've been
sketching your drawing's on paper (hope you don't mind).

Once again, very nice!

This is incredible. I would love to see one of carved necks on a finished guitar. Any way to see that pic?

Thanks

Your artistry is matched by your craftsmanship. Beyond that, I am at a loss for words. I always used to fantasize about doing a carving just like this on a banjo heel. I persuaded myself that such a thing was unachievable. Obviously, I was wrong.

I am pretty well thunderstruck.
