You've succeeded getting the image here and more importantly you have succeeded portraying an Eagle's head.I like it a lot.
What size is it? Great proportions. Welcome back.
Coming from you that means a lot Frank.
the length of the head is about 7", give or take, and about 3 1/2" wide, give or take. Trying to make it semi-life size. It's fun. we'll see how the rest of the body goes.
Yes, quite lovely. I like the eye a lot.
Rick Crawford at Smoky Forge
the eye is a combo of mild steel for the pupil and copper for the colored part of the eye......what ever the proper term is........
Nice Job On the Eagle Head!
Very realistic looking.
Are you planning on doing any more with this wonderful piece?
it's a commission for a guy who collects driftwood. He wants the eagle mounted on a big branch he had found. He wants it to look like it just landed, so i will need to build the whole body.
No pun intended, but if the Body comes out as well as the Head. You certainly have done a wonderful Job!
Good Luck with commissioned Piece.
Hi Paula, Nice to have you back. The eagle head is amazing, Nelson is right, I could look it for hours trying to catch all of the details. Can't wait to see how it evolves.
I'll keep on posting as it comes along...thanks!
