Realistic Santa Carvings

Intricate details and interesting poses add life to these realistic Santa carvings 

By Dylan Goodson

With any carving, it’s important to get the overall anatomy correct. But for me, the fun comes when it’s time to add details. I prefer realistic carvings because I can really add as much detail as I want. Scroll through the gallery of photos to see not only how anatomy affects the pose of the Santa, but also how it’s possible to add all sorts of fun detail to your carvings.
