I don’t know about tutorials, I got thrown in off the deep end so to speak. My advice is to get some scraps of soft wood and play around with the different chisel types and see what they do, figure out how the cut best, then make some practice carvings, doesn’t have to even be as complicated as the one you want to do. Just get the feel for the tools. Also, the eye is probably done with a brad point bit, just sayin.
