You’re off to a good start. Those spirit figures are a good place to start carving.

Great first attempt. I would end up making the face look like a gragoyle.

I have no talent for carving (although I do enjoy it), any of you that can make
recognizable images in wood have my envy in your pocket. Great job. If I
might be so bold as to make a suggestion from one who has been there
before, use a small set of hand carving blades and chisels. The rotary (powered)
tools usually get the job done much faster, but you give up a lot of control
in the process, which leads to mistakes and the feeling you must rush the job at hand.
