Duddy, your stuff is still looking a bit rough, but a hundred % better than early on. Keep on working on smoothing out all the lumps and bulges and you'll be doing great. When you start complaining about how much you Hate sanding, you'll be there.

Don't feel alone,, I don't know of Any carver who likes to sand (except for TikiG's Miss Trish), we ALL HATE IT. Now that you know that, just realize that the More you sand, the Better your piece will probably be. My Lifetime Quest is to find ways to make sanding faster and easier and they usually involve some form of Power tools!
So keep up the good work and Practice your sanding EVERY Day!

I wouldn't burn it. I would add as much detail as possible and then you don't need any burning.

Lookin' good, Duddy! You're really getting brave by making such deep cuts into the wood. Your work is becoming much more sculptural, and less "drawn" on the surface. Looks like you are shaping with a saw too. Congrats!

Oh, and nice jammies!
