    One advantage of first sketching on paper over sketching directly on the block of wood is that paper is easier to erase... I quite often make a rough sketch on paper just to get the size/proportions correct, as well as the placement of limbs/head... On something simple or that I only intend to make once, I will often just sketch directly on the wood. The paper sketch can be saved and later on traced with graphite paper to make a second, third, etc., carving very similar to the first.
    I agree with Merle - may help you a lot and certainly won't hurt.

    Drawing what is to be carved

    Just wondering if drawing sketching on paper, what I will be carving would help me improving my carving skills.
Working...
