Star Wars: Grand Moff Tarkin
This was for the LTC tracker Star Wars.  There were just so many characters to choose from but i decided to do someone that no one picked.  I had always liked his portrayal from the films and thought of a simple design.  There was really nothing to this carve except carving out the negative space.  I probably could have done a little more detail on some of the lines and eliminated some stress lines from his forehead and chins but the likeness seemed to turn out well.  I used some colored pencils for the flesh tone and subtle color in his shirt.  The flesh tone was a little too strong so i then used an eraser over his entire face after applying it and this seemed to soften the color which then looked much better afterwards.
