Hi John, I to get my inspiration all over! The wood dictates your product to a degree also. Ive started a bear and ended up with a coon or even a cat. Ha! I've turned a eagle into a mushroon before. The picture you featured with the wings and eagle head was i mistake (spelling) so i improvised and hollowed it and eagle head in the center. Â Â As for forums, the carving post.comÂ Then click the fourm one. they have acouple of other sites listed also.Â Alot of very talented artist there, world wide.
