Xmas Card Musings

A bit of a hiatus.  I had a poetry book to get out (semi-annual distraction).  Now it's high time I knuckle down to carving the xmas card.

So today I'll work on shading ~ as in how I'll carve it.  I made a light version of the cartoon to scribble on.  Work out how I'll round the bars, how dark/light I'll make them, etc.  I don't want to start carving without some of this worked out.

Otherwise it's fairly straightforward.  I will want to get a little carved shading into the rotties tho.  Don't want them a solid black.
