Another troubled carving in the making! This carving was definitely a tough one. I started off the carving as the regular Cohiba line (below in off-white, black and red).
After completing the carving I decided to scratch the idea and go for the XV line (or Extra Vigoroso). The off-white background showed all imperfections and it just didn't look right. The only problem was that I had already carved the "O" on the right side of the label. I wound up removing the "O" completely and creating an "X" and a "V" to attach to the carving. This was a first, but the outcome was a lot better than the first attempt.
