      Hi Hunter,
      I am going to do some lessons soon on carving details on faces. A carving of an open hand is coming up soon also! My suggestion while you wait – look at your own face in a mirror and study the very subtle nuances of shape. It’s fascinating once you start looking. Then you will begin to look at everyone and study their faces. But don’t creep them out by staring too much 🙂
