And now the close up version of Espeon! I really like this one, but I'm not sure if I like it better then the Umbreon carving...
I had fun with this. The entire thing is lightly shaded in that wonderful way you can only do with watermelons. It took forever, but man does it look cool. I probably wouldn't have done it if I wasn't carving it to go along side Umbreon. It makes for wonderful contrast. I think it's one of my better carvings.
I was worried the sitting pose would be weird, but it works out very nicely as well.
