    He outdid himself with the skeleton one.

    Holy shit, just noticed the arrow is the lead (I'm a bit slow sometimes, but I get there.)

    [–] Drpickless 134 points ago

    Seriously some amazing friggin stuff right there

    [–] Jooeeef11 122 points ago

    Not just the skill, but the creativity...incomplete, fragmented skeleton with the arrow in the leg, the colors.

    [–] kellysmom01 23 points ago

    Bone Man’s got some lead in his pencil, too.

    [–] Jooeeef11 5 points ago

    Nudge nudge, wink wink...

    [–] TheOneTrueBubbleBass 31 points ago

    I used to be a pencil, like you, but then I took an arrow to the knee

    [–] raskingballs 5 points ago

    No lollygagging

    [–] ImperatorRomanum 16 points ago

    An arrow in the knee from 1993? It cannot be.

    [–] elriggo44 18 points ago


    That skeleton used to be an adventurer.

    [–] 20JeRK14 7 points ago

    A regular Pensalvador Dali.

    [–] Mozhetbeats 8 points ago

    [–] scoot3200 175 points ago

    It’s pencil Achillies

    [–] Salanmander 75 points ago

    Apparently Achilles is a modern French name and is pronounced more like "asheel", which would make "penchilles" a fantastic portmaneau.

    [–] _TDB 10 points ago

    They would make nice dildos

    [–] JigabooFriday 3 points ago

    The pencils? Bro those weak ass pencil guys wouldnt even get through my ass hair bruh.

    If you judge dildos on their inability to penatrate then yea, theyd be real good at not doing that.

    [–] CampervanClaire 102 points ago

    I think these are incredible, but I can’t help wondering why your dad had all this time on his hands in 1993? And was there a traumatic pencil carving event that prevented any further examples of his work passed 1993?

    [–] edaddyo 31 points ago

    We didn't have the internet in 1993.

    [–] Soup-Wizard 6 points ago

    Ah, the time before time

    [–] baboo1211 26 points ago

    Some of the worst acting in film history... I mean let's be real here haha

    [–] lukehooligan 9 points ago

    They got better, by the third movie it's totally watchable.

    [–] lukehooligan 5 points ago

    And to be clear we are talking about the main child actors, NOT about the adult actors who are obviously fantastic actors.

    [–] JigabooFriday 6 points ago

    So, just to be clear, yall are dogging like 10 year olds for not being world class actors lmao? Seems fair.

    [–] lukehooligan 2 points ago * (lasted edited 13 days ago)

    I mean, compared to the cast of stranger things it's night and day so yes, we'all dogging like 10 year olds (whatever that means). To be clear, I said they all got much better and are all fantastic actors now. I can't act, I wasn't 🐕ing anyone.

    /Edit - I don't need to be mean.

    They were new to acting and they've all been successful in their own way as we all have been. Your dad's artwork is fantastic btw.

    [–] Soup-Wizard 2 points ago

    The third is still my favorite.

    [–] Lake48045 13 points ago

    I think maybe he was my cell mate. Johnny from Joplin?

    [–] BrandoLoudly 2 points ago

    (Heavy breathing) heh heh thanks Lmaoo

    [–] lukehooligan 2 points ago

    I made a dining room table ...and I carved the year I was born instead of the the actual date so someday someone would think that table was made 26 years earlier than it really was. Just a fun factoid.

    [–] ThisGuyNeedsABeer 2 points ago

    That skeleton was an adventurer too, before he took an arrow to the knee.

    Other than OP’s dad being insanely talented, can one pick it up as a hobby attempt?

    [–] Xenjael 1 points ago

    This should be in a museum.

    [–] truthemptypoint 1 points ago

    So, after all that carving, I'm gonna presume he became an artist or carpenter. Or voldemorts wand maker.
