Process to carve the wood block

I print my concept in reverse, because, like in lithography class, you must print in reverse to have the right side that you plan that will come out on the paper. After I tape the concept onto a carbon sheet and my pieces of wood together. It will help me to transfer the line of my drawing onto the wood. 

 

   

After I begin to carve my wood with the little one tool near my drawing area and carve the big surface with the bigger tools. In the book, it said that finger must never be in the way of the cutting tool and place your other finger on the tool to control the path. You carve only the white area of your drawing which it will be the white of your paper that don’t have a print on it and the rest will be the relief of it.  And this is the result of my wood block.
