Tree Face

This fun project is intended to inspire you to make a face! A Tree Face, that is. The included project files have eyes, nose and a mustached mouth ready to carve, as well as a couple customizable files to get you started. You can make your own models in Aspire using photos of faces found on the internet as a reference. Photos are imported into Aspire, vectors drawn and the shapes are made from the vectors. You can use Aspire’s Sculpting Tools to blend, smooth and add some details. (That’s what I did.)

The overall finished dimensions are about:
7″ x 9″

If you go ahead and create this project, then it would be great to see a photo of your finished piece over on the Vectric Forum. Alternatively feel free to email us a picture of your finished piece at online@vectric.com.
