Howard K. Suzuki
The first comprehensive book for carvers of aquatic animals! It includes practical tips for carvers as well as the anatomic and behavioral information vital to their search for realism. Detailed drawings, patterns, and photographs of the animals in their natural environments fill the book. In addition, examples of Howard’s wood sculpture are offered as models and inspirations. This book will inspire you to create your own original designs.
Included are the Great White Shark, the Tiger Shark, the Manta Ray, the Spotted Eagle Ray, the Loggerhead Sea Turtle, the American Alligator, the Great Sperm Whale, the Orca, the Bottlenose Dolphin, the West Indian Manatee, and the Humpback. In addition to general carving considerations, there are special carving/sculpting suggestions for each of animals.
For the Humpback Whale, detailed photographs and captions document each step of the sculpting. These can be readily adapted to other subjects.
