    started to cut away some of the hair, the lettering, and started the top of his collar. the lion layout is visible. should i maybe cut this down to where it's more smooth first ? and then do the layout all over again ?
    i warned you people you'd all be sorry !

    were it me
    take a big flat
    cut around the outline at a 45 degree angle to set the depth
    do that on the other major elements

    carve back the round part of the nose
    that will set your first plane
    then go further in
    dont screw up what you have already done
    adjust as necessary
    ill wait till your next pic

    use the biggest gravers you have then as you detail in go to smaller ones
    just like painting
