I'd like to introduce a little hedgehog the came into being a few weeks ago (I just uploaded pictures today). He is the first carving I've done in a long time, despite the near end of apple season. I started university this year, so I've been swamped with work, and it took a little while to get used to life on campus and try to get over missing Belgium (which still hasn't been successful, by the way). But at least I finally found time and enough inspiration to get back to my apples, and I think mr. hedgehog was a good new start.
here's a closeup:
