I droped the arms because they where to small for my taste, i’m fine with

…grrr no time. (and srry for the blurry mobilepics i’ll update you
with better pic’s of this series PEARBLOCKS when Christmas is over)
I’m a huge fan of brass, it’s really easy to work with it and it’s perfect for my next small experiment: branding my wooden toy hordes!
I used the CNC milling cutter to get me some small brass stamps with my name engraved (first attempt was a miss, because i forgot to mirror inverted the letters…urgh ). With a soldering iron and some patience with the sightly goatish PEARBLOCK guys, i got the result I’m looking for!
Check also the pictures with the new fellow, i call him the PEAR DEER. I gave him a nice and shiny semi gloss finish, hope you like him…
The little Wodden PEARBLOCK is made out of pear and oak wood finished and coated with natural linseed oil

Had no sketches for this little guy, it was just cutting and sanding into the blue. The design has only two joints for the arms, so it’s kind of simple and not rich detailed, just a rough protoype … kind of like him and want to define some details a bit more (proportions, face, painting) …and maybe i’ll try out some silly ideas (how about to drill him the whole head away… hey, just a thougt
