The grain really gave you a nice effect on the eagle :)

Alex should be proud, he did a fine job but I'll bet grandpa's even prouder.
Very nice Dale.

Great work. Adding color to "some" carvings really make them pop. Yours is a perfect example. I've done both brush and most recently, airbrush on some of my projects. Both work well. Keep up the good work. Gives us all examples/methods for future projects.

NICE!
13 years old eh? And not terrified of a paintbrush? Cool .........
Alex has some serious talent there. If you buy him some "lettering quills" ( 20X easier for the stripes, for instance) that boy will be famous someday.
