Tip: Simple. Yet Decent Caricature Eyes
Submitted by Laura Reich, from a Bishops carving class.
"......I have a hard time remembering just how to do those darn eyes. Of course, it is always best to first use a gouge to lower out the eye area. Harley Refsal just uses a triangle (one short side by the nose and two longer sides) and cuts out the small corner triangle. But I personally find this a bit too simple looking.
Mike Shipley takes it just a step further:
First cut your bottom almost horizontal line on both sides of the nose. (A)
To this add vertical lines by the nose. So on the left you have a backwards "L" and on the right a regular "L". (B)
Now just close up the "L" with an arch. (C)
Then cut out the corners, and trim the top of the eyeball. (D)
