wh33ls, ur doing pretty ok for a beginning, but heres a starting good tip, never make another mesh as body parts, u have to keep going adding edges from the neck area to the chest to the legs, and hands also

Hey jornkes,

Great start!

the picture that you posted is a 3/4 view.

At the moment I think your eyes are too high. They should sit halfway up the face.
