Whittling Baby Animals

In a previous post I mentioned that I had a request for some baby animals.   Unable to find some illustrations of baby animals, I am reduced to sketching my own.  Since my sketching skills may not be up to par I had better identify these sketches.  Starting in the upper left corner and going clockwise we have a baby deer,  baby polar bear or brown bear (depends on color), piglet, and a baby skunk.  I next transferred the sketches onto Basswood using carbon paper.  The grain of the wood is running from top to bottom of the pieces,

After transferring the sketches to the wood I used the scroll saw to cut them out.

The next posts will focus on whittling the pieces.
