Kurzbeschreibung

24. September 2009
For anyone who's ever had trouble rendering the human face, the newly expanded and revised edition of "Carving the Human Face", is the ticket to creating realistic portraits. From a world champion carver known for his lifelike busts, this updated book includes new patterns and photographs, in addition to valuable information on techniques for creating realistic hair, facial features, realistic skin and muscle, hats and head dresses. Phares provides tips for fixing common anatomical errors and information about proper tool use. This title features an exhaustive step-by-step project, including over 350 demonstration photographs, that guides readers from a block of butternut to a finished mask of a Native American warrior. It also includes a gallery of Jeff Phares' amazing work that offers untold inspiration too!

Pressestimmen

Have you been inspired by the carvers' projects here at LumberJocks.com, such as the work by Jordan, Mikelknot, and Mark Decou, to name a few? Is "carving a face" on your list of woodworking projects but you just don't know where to start? Here is a great place to begin --the resource book: "Carving The Human Face." With over 250 steps, broken down into eight working sections, the author carefully guides you through the process of releasing the human face from a chunk of wood. Each step is clearly explained in the text as well as the accompanying photos. Photos include work in progress, planning sketches and sketches of the human anatomy to help understand and achieve lifelike features. In addition to the detailed process for the featured carving, the reader is provided with examples of changes that can be made to the original design. Also included are photos of common mistakes made when carving a face as well as ways to fix the errors. As I read through the book, it seemed to me that as much work went into capturing the step-by-step process as it did to do the actual carving! I was very impressed. My Ratings of The Book Layout and Appearance: Filled, front to back, with photos and directions! Thumbs Up! Instructions: Clearly written and supported by the photos & drawings. Thumbs Up! Project Selection: A beautiful rendition of a Native American. Beautiful - Thumbs Up! Inspiration: Inspiring just to watch the process, let alone give it a try. Thumbs Up! Overall: Thumbs Up!

Acknowledgements
This book is in memory of my Grandfather Kyle Phares. He always believed in me and had faith in what I was doing. I would like to offer my gratitude to my family and friends for their continued support and patience, and my thanks to photographer Marc Featherly for the outstanding photography within these pages. You are the best. My thanks also go to the Carvers that have had a hand in helping and motivating me to do what I love best, carving. I would also like to thank you guys, and you know who you are, for your constant encouragement to be the best that I can be. Last but not least, a special,heart-felt thanks to Lisa for all the last minute details and making me smile when I needed it the most. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Part One showcases more than 20 of his current works, focusing in on the wise and weathered expressions of Native Americans, frontiersmen and cowboys. Part Two offers more than 350 instructional photographs taking the aspiring sculptor from a block of butternut to the finished facial mask of a Native American warrior. Part Three of Carving The Human Face includes more than 20 diagrams explaining facial anatomy and how it relates to Carving Masks and busts. Woodcarvers and sculptors will find the material and techniques comprising this single volume "how to" guide and manual to be invaluable in honing their skills and improving their work.

This book is, without a doubt, the best instructional book for wood carvers in the past decade. I sincerely wish that Jeff Phares will do another book soon. I am certainly happy that the book is available through Amazon as his book seems to be selling out at most book stores.

Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I have purchased all of Jeff Phares books, and this last edition, Carving the Human Face is by far the best one yet, much more detail and very clear photo's. I have learned a great deal from these books.

5.0 von 5 Sternen excellent book 5. Juli 2012
Von Terry McCammon - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I have read this book cover to cover. Unlike some of his other books the photographs are clear, sharp and not over illuminated. Some have complained that the subject is limited to Native American's. While it is certainly true that the example is a Native American, he frequently shows sketches of a variety of choices when creating the various facial features. After all, an eye is an eye or a nose is a nose. If you can do one that looks good then you can do one that represents the details of the type you are going for. I personally have no particular interest in doing Native American's my interest is more on the caricature side of carving. Nonetheless I have learned a lot from this book and highly recommend it.

I have no idea if the publishers read these reviews, but given that his other books are frankly poorly produced and sell for over $100 in the used market, it would seem that republishing his other books would make sense.
