Cedar Carving Update #1

Spent some time working on my new carving. Started out removing some wood under the chin and beginning to form the neck. Roughed in the mouth. Lay in the mouth with a small gouge, then followed with a v-tool. Rounded the lower lip and separated the lips with a knife. Next, on to the eyes. Began by drawing in the eyes making sure the are on a straight line. Using dividers to keep them the same width and height. Once again, I carve in with a small gouge. Satisfied they are even, I use a detail knife to carve a stop cut under the eyelids. Then rounding the eyeball and removing a small chip from each corner. At this point the face is roughed in and needs some refining before adding detail. But, I think you can see where this is going. Thanks for following.
