Scroll is based on the stern-piece of the Oseberg Viking Ship. Here's an earlier shot, during the varnishing.
As we say when we're being vocally emotional: I am not completely unhappy with it.
The body form is based on the Brothers Amati that I drew several years back, following Francois Denis' method, and the f-holes are del Gesu inspired.
My most recent, being a violin for about a week now, is based on a del Gesu, the 'Plowden'. The form comes from my tracing of a CT scan from the poster put out by Strad Magazine a few years back.
I'm not completely unhappy with this one, either. Both are still stretching and growing. Kinda fun to play them each day, note the changes.
I also just shipped off a fiddle, constucted here, that is a Christmas present, so I won't spill the beans yet.
And an eastern European white viola that I had been varnishing and set-up went out the door to a very happy customer. She actually got it before it was really ready, having had a bad accident with her then-current viola, and needed an instrument for a few holiday concerts. But she liked it enough as-was to buy it. Just did the final intial adjustments this week, after the concerts.
