Shohin Tanaki in 2 Years

Post  peterh on Thu Jan 02, 2014 4:49 am

This Bonsai was a failed attempt in a Shohin competition. After withdrawing it I decided to complete the project.

Regards,

Peter

The wood was the main inspiration for the Tanarki.



Being an electrician I utilize what I have on hand.













As of today.

I normally don't like tanuki, however yours is done in such an unusual way it is very pleasing and interesting.

Thanks

Agreed.  Some times the efforts to do a tanuki tend to look like someone trying to copy a dollar bill using crayons and paper towels.

This one is very nice.

Hmmmm....

What makes a tanuki believable (and "good") is when the living part follows the veins of the dead part, so they appear as one. I wish you had utilized the crevice that moves from the bottom left and then turns right as it flows across the face of the dead wood.
