A Bengal tiger I just finished up. Carving him wasn't too bad. Getting the color I wanted and getting the stripes on him were the hard part. Each tiger has stripes that are unique to them and the stripes are symmetrical side to side. I airbrushed the main colors and then hand painted in the stripes to get them a close as I could. The glass eyes were clear flints that had to be hand painted, because I couldn't find the right color. All in all I am genuinely pleased with him, being this is only the second one I've carved.
