My first real wood burning pic. This is my second attempt at it really. Still trying to get used to the pen as well as the tips. Probably do at least one more before I try anything more complex.



Thanks to everyone for the tips and support. Hopefully you'll see some progression as I continue to practice!

Thanks,

Thanks! That's very nice of you to say. There are a lot of mistakes you probably can't see in that size of pic. After some thought, I think I'm going to end up planing that piece down again and redoing it. Watched a few videos and I want to try those techniques out. Also, I'm going to increase the size of the picture to use the full board. I'm having trouble with filling in the shadows and making smooth lines. But I think (hopefully) I'll have a cleaner piece this next time through.

I did learn quite a bit while doing these practice pieces though. And they were fun to work on. It is quite therapeutic as well.

Thanks,

Glad it's ok for you. Could've been a bit better, but it was only my second shot as doing a pic. I planed it down so I could do a different piece. Right now I am working on depth and shadows. Trying to do a whole scene and not just the main image itself. We will see if I can figure it out or not.

But I'm going to invest in a better quality wood burning pen. This one is good to learn on, but it's nibs/tips are not well designed and when you should be able to do one thing, you get a totally different result. As well as, the temp fluctuates so you have times where the wood burns uneven.

Gonna go look at finding an upgraded version of a pen right now...

Thanks for taking an interest!
