I wood if I could.

Thanks for the kind words, guys. I know it's not quite the "right" type of woodworking for this forum. But it IS wood and I DID work it .
I've done a lot of these types of carvings (been whittling for slightly over 20 years now. Started at the age of 17.). Though most of my whittlings are things like fancy chains containing balls-in-cages, chain links of various sorts, rings on shafts, sliding parts, etc..., I do like to carve faces and various characters like the one shown above. And I do incorporate faces into a lot of my chains.
I'm not particularly good at faces but I'm usually happy enough with the way they turn out. And people LOVE the pumpkins I carve each year at the Halloween parties. I usually try to have one carved before anyone arrives then be working on a second one while people are there. I do a total of two or three each year.
