Finally all the main shapes and details are finished. Now comes the time to make final evaluations and corrections before beginning the surface work. Since the sculpture is in the round, meaning it is carved to be viewed from all sides, not just from the front, it has to be evaluated from all sides. It is important to look at the way different surfaces meet, are the shapes well defined, even at a distance?  Subtlety does not work as well in 3D as 2D, therefore the shapes should be bold enough to provide interest at first glance and not just after careful study. After taking the time to reassess, with chisel, hammer  and files in hand,  the changes needed must be made.
