WIZARD AND ELF DESIGN FOR HAND CARVED FIGURINE'S
In 2005 i was asked by a young chap called Henry who's father Phil runs wonderful shops of magical hand crafted, gifts and jewellery from Indonesia and America called RAPHAEL if i would be interested in designing some fantasy characters that would be hand carved in wood from skilled craftsmen in Indonesia, i said ok and here are those designs a Wizard and a Elf , as you can see they are not too detailed due to the fact the sculptor carving from my designs would be doing so in wood, i also designed a Goblin character which will get carved if these sell well and there will be more to follow if there is a market for them .
any way a fun little project to draw.
each figurine is unique as they are ALL HAND CARVED so no mass production they are a limited edition, this was wonderful to see when i received my comp figurines a mixture of west meet east artistic skills
the sculptors do the work under fair trade
if you like the figurines or want to know more you can contact Raphael crafts via my link at the side of the blog which will put you on to their website or copy and paste this link
