This last week was much of the same. Cutting facets into my block in order to create a round surface. Trying to carve level planes is slow going for novice as myself but all this repetition is proving to be good practice.
I finally got the facets done and rounded the stone into a half cylinder

I am still chipping away at my sculpture. Working my way around the coyote skull and trying to coax it out of the stone, nice'n easy like... mostly I'm just a little scared to make to many definite markings until I understand the shapes of the skull. I'm almost done with rough first layer though, and I will soon begin to bringing the details out.
