Patience with the newbie.

Can you guys please send me pictures of your cutting set up for quarter inch EM for roughing and one eighth inch v-bit for finishing in .75 material for hard wood and corian
hopefully won't need to bother anymore.

When it comes to things like cutter settings it is really down to what machine you are using, what works for me with my machine could be very wrong for your machine. Your best bet would be to experiment with speed & feed settings on your own machine.
As for finishing, you really don't want to be using a V bit for something like that looking at the picture you have posted. You would be better off using a tapered ball nose bit, what size tapered ball nose will depend on the size of you carving & the level of detail you would like.
