Here are a few picks of the progress on the pelican. I am shaping and carving the head, body and feet first then the wings; better to get the proportion right for those once I get the rest first.
I hope to spend most of tomorrow on it although I might help someone move. As you look at the photos remember that you wont see, for example, much of his legs once installed, the 6 inch wall comes out from where I have the legs and body starting. I may have one or two fish tail fins sticking out of his pouch since it does look like he has just caught something.
