Another game based relief carving - Samorost 3

The second relief carving done in butternut wood is the ''final battle scene'' from the game Samorost 3. It was done as a gift for my son's 3rd birthday, he really likes the ''robot fighting bubaba'' as he calls it. I decided not to paint this carving, it has some nice grain:

Relief carving - Darkest Dungeon scene

My first proper relief carving done as a celebration of me finishing the game Darkest Dungeon :)
It is a scene of my favourite party combination for regular run - Hellion, Highwayman, Houndmaster and Vestal. The piece is done in 15x8 inches butternut wood board and it is finished with Danish oil and oil paints, which is also something I have done the very first time.

The carving is not for sale, I am keeping this one! Here are some more photos of the relief:

And few picture of the work in progress:

Old Little Lighthouse

Well this 16'' piece is literally ''Old Little Lighthouse'' because it is carved back in 2015!
I had it installed on a frame with a water colour painting in the background and it looked pretty neat, the problem is I was never able to bring it anywhere to display as it was so different from my other carvings and I just didn't have room for it. So eventually I decided to take the lighthouse off the frame and I named it as mentioned in the title. I will either have it for sale in my Etsy shop soon or I will bring it to some show in the spring.

Large card box with Ravnica theme

I carved a large box for 900 sleeved MTG cards with The Guilds of Ravnica symbol on the top few years back and was requested to carve another one. It was supposed to be about the same as the original but I think I didn't have the first piece carved as intricately as this new one:

Two larger pieces done in cottonwood bark

Two pieces done few months back but never posted, one is a large lighthouse with a really unique base and another was a custom carving of a tower inspired by the movie Tangled.

The ''North Wind Lighthouse'' is 21 inches tall:

And the ''Final Step Tower'' is 17 inches:

Large MTG card box with Dragon theme

A custom work for somebody in Austria, a large Magic the Gathering card box that can hold over 1000 sleeved cards. It has a combination of relief and chip carving on it, the relief carved dragon is the main theme:

The piece is finished with Danish oil and a dark mahogany gel stain:

A deep cut chip carving is done on both sides and the front of the box:
