making wood cut-outs for Christmas

I used my scroll saw and went crazy with some wood cut-out character Christmas present action. The Moore's (one of my favorite families ever) were kind enough to invite me to their place for Christmas since I couldn't make it to Montana this year. This one was for Trista. It's Wolf Boy Wearing his second favorite sweater.
This one was for Tiphoni. My Cat Mortimer really wanted to keep this one. It has 14 legs and 42 toes.This one is a tiny time traveler (actual size) that I made for Tracy. He put my cat to sleep using his special powers.This is The Temple Carrying Turtle I made for Teesha. I used one of my giant doodles as a back drop for this one.Special angled view shot.

This is the Big Head With Pants. He's a character I made up a long time ago and has become an ongoing joke between my Brother and I. He even used him in one of his animation assignments in school. I was not strong enough to resist making him this.This is a magic good luck dog I made for my Sister. All the colors in his fur don't really come across in this photo.This one was for my Mom. I snapped this shot and the other two for my siblings right as I was packing them into a box to ship home to Montana.

This one was for my Dad. It hung on my wall for about 5 minutes after being finished, then was packed away and sent to the Bay Area.

Now back to making comics! Happy last day of the year everyone!!

  3. Aaaah, I have just been on Teesha's blog and discovered the answer (since she is proudly showing off your work): colored pencil drawings mounted onto the wood - I wouldn't have thought of that. I guess that is easier than painting onto the wood.
