8. When carving
the back of the eagle, it is not simply a matter or rounding
the back. You must keep in mind that you are carving in two directions
at the same time.
To develop the wing shape, file from the shoulder back
towards the tip on the wings. I hope that the file marks of the
picture on the left will indicate the direction of the shaping
of the folded wings on the back of the eagle.
The Vee where the wings fold onto the back, showing
the wing tips, are created with the round file.
