St Christopher sketches

After I modeled the maquette in clay, I sketched it from all 4 sides, taking accurate measurements from the model.  This means that I will be able to draw the outline onto the block and confidently chop out the excess stone.   After that, I will carve freely without refering to the design, but in the early stages, it's pretty crucial to make careful measurements (if you want to reproduce an existing design accurately).  You will be able to play spot the difference later!  ;>)
