These shots are after a lot of carving, gouging, and painting. The right leg was detached and repositioned to match the drawing better. It has a much more dynamic feel to it now. It has begun to look more tree like, forest elemental. I used a dual color textured paint to get the bark finish. A funny thing is that everyone who sees the spray can says "I didn't know anyone really used that stuff." You can see from the veggie bits I have laying around there is a lot more work to be done.
