Good question CB. I have the same problem. I'm not sure whether to cut the forehead deeper back or recess the area under the nose and bring the chin back with it. I have been tempted to glue a block on for the nose but ethics and structural integrity get in the way.

It depends if you carve on the flat face or the corner of the block,

I studied many methods from many carvers until I just began to learn how I like to carve mines.

How are you trying to cave it right now? Any photos?

Btw, it is always good to practice on single parts first before going to the full face.

Cant do photos yet gtech but I am trying to do mine on a curved surface ie. hiking staff. I am trying to follow Skylar Johnson's "How to carve a woodspirit in a hiking stick" but still grt a flattish face.

CB, when you start carving a face on a block of wood you need to start on one of the 4 corners... The way the nose is already a little further out than the rest of the face.... Hope this helps....
