Generally, for each "major" step I make a new layer. That way, if I have an "Oh, ****, I ****ed up" moment, I can just delete the offending layer and start it over instead of using an eraser tool and risking erasing something important. I also find it helpful when the certain segment of a painting is done and I decide that I want something changed; once again it is far easier and far less risky for me.
If I'm not mistaken, "mandible" is the term for lower jaw? So you are not wrong, I guess, haha.
Thank you for your comment and your compliments, hopefully the next "stage" will get posted soon.
