yes, you are putting your finger on things that don't look right, Any irregularities in the continuous line, a long gentle curve that has kind of flatish spots on it, stuff like that. How to fix them is difficult because you need to go back to where you created those lines and use that tool to even things out. Sometimes you need to compromise and fix some and leave others alone. Fixing one may make the other bearable. Don't get me wrong, this is an Excellent piece the way it is. and you may want to leave it as is depending on how much time you want to spend on it, peopleare usually not going to give you a hard time about minor stuff, Unless you show it to them, then you probably need to fix it. There are Some pieces you will do where everything just clicks and it is just turning out great and you can see it is one of your better pieces, That is the piece you will spend the extra time with going over it with that fine toothed comb, making it as perfect as you can. then there are other pieces that are just so-so and don't merit the extra time for special upgrades.
This is what I mean by having the ability to see problem areas,decide weather the piece warrants the time to fix those issues and then Fixing them. The more you do, the more you realize that needs to be done. I hope this helps to solve the riddle of carving. I hope it did not add to the puzzle and make you more confused.
You are definitely on the right track!
