This is probably the most important stage of the carving: Orientating the wood to the model; lining up the model with the block.
Why so important? It's the big picture. We need to get that right so that everything else, all the forms that follow, sit in the right place and 'articulate' convincingly. You need to strongly visualise and, of course with this your model helps enormously.
Listen to me thinking through the process.
