  1. Last in a series of four engraved angel plaques....

  2. Great detail & skills you got there HD!

    I was wondering what tools you use to create this?

  4. I draw them on a wooden plaque then use a Dremel tool with different size bits to take out background then finely detail. Of course, staining is the last (easiest) step.

    Great work and studio, HD.
  6. HD...I need to google “dremel ” & learn more about what tools I need.

    My one & only attempt was about 20 years ago.
    I found an old brick that was a block from the actual place.

    I used an old swiss knife & it was ok on the large parts that I cut out,
    but the small details I just couldn’t do it .
    I didn’t prepare a drawing to go by...I just cut away until it looked like what I
    wanted it to look like.

    Take a guess of what it is I was trying to create!

    Do you “Remember” ? ha-ha-ha! :D

  10. I'd sure take that as a compliment..!! I found early on that most artists are sensitive (like me) but must develop a thick skin to always continue to progress. There are always critics who may tend to overlook talent or the hard work involved. Art is a process of copying....scenes...people...any object. Everyone has their own style of doing it...but.. that's what they are doing, AND not everyone is successful at it...!!

  13. Here is some illustration and design work I just finished for a new album/CD by a friend's primitive blues band. The work is based off a famous photo of blues pioneer Robert Johnson.
