Thanks Sam. It has been 3 years since I have cut a scroll. But i’m still young(ish), so maybe.

Good suggestion Mitch. I will work on some changes.

Hi Roger, yes I have a barreled action (P&V) in the white. I stocked it a few years ago. And yes they were quite concerned when I asked them detailed disassembly questions but they were gracious and generally helpful.

Hi Mitch. Lots of clean up required but here are a couple of iterations. Your thoughts? The left is the original and I turned off the shading and background layers in hopes of a more clear picture.

i'm pretty sure i've never seen a double of any sort with a full length 'Mannlicher' style fore-end. very interesting...

Not a double. The P&V Eagle is a single shot break open. I added hardware to the barrel to allow me to create a forearm design similar to the Merkel stutzen. This rifle is chambered in 7x65 R which is the reason for the leopard motif.

Thanks Monk, bought that stock blank in the early 2000’s and waited for the right gun to put it on.

Good, thanks, I wanted to pull the fawn away a bit to focus the threat.

P&V is short for Perugini & Visini which is an Italian gun maker.

I didn’t like the tree or the balance of the scene so made a few changes. The shading is rough but gives an idea of what it could look like. Better?

Truly enjoyed watching this come together. To often it's easy to see a completed piece and fail to grasp the careful work and planning that went into its creation.

Thanks Jonathan. I struggle with pretty much every game scene but get a lot of good advice from people on Engravers Cafe.

My best critic and biggest fan (my wife) thinks I should scrap the game scene idea and just do an animal like the Kudu I did a few years ago. B1A6D7F8-CC73-4373-AA3B-0ECA0BED1611.jpeg
