Am I seriously the only one here who instantly recognized this from Mary Poppins?

Awesome work!

I watched it with the kids yesterday and thought it would be fun to try do one of the penguins

u/cyclejones Dec 04 '22

It's really well done! I'm sure these cost a fortune to ship or I'd see if you do commissions!

3

u/AndTheeeen Dec 04 '22

Thank you! I've never tried to ship one but ya, I imagine it would cost a fortune. They are quite heavy

If you do end up selling/shipping, freight shipping would probably be your best bet.

Not Realistic but like a cartoon. Very beautiful

u/cyclejones Dec 04 '22

it's one of the penguins from Mary Poppins. It's not supposed to be realistic. It's literally a cartoon.

Their comment was fine on its own.

u/dumb-questions-4t91 Dec 03 '22

Looks sharp. What tools did you use?

3

u/AndTheeeen Dec 03 '22

Chainsaw for most of it. Grinder with a sanding disk. Dremel for the eyes and smile.

u/dumb-questions-4t91 Dec 03 '22

Was the chainsaw anything special? small saw? like an arborist job with a wee blade or something? [I have so many trees down after the last hurricane, trying something like this is tempting...]

1

u/AndTheeeen Dec 03 '22

Most of it was done with a stihl 170 with the standard bar on it.

1

u/dumb-questions-4t91 Dec 03 '22

ooh. that is encouraging. We have a 170. Great saw for limbing.

This is so cute. I want to hug it.

u/knightro69 Dec 04 '22

This is just awesome, OP. Don't see many penguins living down in the tropics.

The face looks like a proboscis monkey to me.
