This is not a criticism. It is simply the impression the piece gives me.
It appears as a casting rather than a cut piece. I do both.
just a pleasure to look at your creations. you cast doubt on the premise that the hand can never achieve perfection. do you direct draw on the piece, or use transfers ?
"It is tough to photograph these coins, because a photo renders everything in 2D and can’t capture the rounding of surfaces...thus the final image looks fatter than the actual carving"
Not sure what your are getting at, but this looks like you could pluck it off the coin and the figure would spring to life and come at you. Great work
Nice work for sure. Photos are deceptive. I saw a photo of a piece that Sam Welch did and it appeared totally flat but when I saw it in person it was in deep relief. I was really impressed but the photo was not impressive at all.
