Carving Press Block

Pencil sketch on block, 4"x6".

Starting to carve. This is really scary. I've never attempted to carve face detail this tiny before. I figured I should start with it tho in case I screw it up and have to start over with a new block. I'm going to leave it alone for awhile now. Don't want to press my luck.

A little more carving, some pencil sketching, some chalk. Shoulders are getting a little stiff so it's time for a break.


More carving.
