Default Bear

This is my first animal, decided it to be a bear.
This is the model so far:


Any hints, tips?
I'm modelling from a model so the wireframe you see, that's not my model.

i think this is supposed to be in the WIP section (Work In Progress). This bit is more of a Q & A forum for those having trouble

Looking good though!

Lol, ok, but can't replace it now, sorry for that. Anyhow, update on images, I'm going to need some help for the eyes, how do I do them?
Pics:




Now, just need to do the tail now, but that's easy. Only the eyes, I don't know how to do them.
And my bear isn't really symetrical, how do I "mirror" it. (I don't mean how do I duplicate the legs to the other side)

Ok, I've got an idea for the nose: booleans. Now I'm going to convert it into polygons.

Just re-iterating what has already been said, I think you should continue this in the WIP section as this is for problems and queeries rather than regular updates of your work. coming along nicely though, booleans can be a pain in the ass if the geometry does not intersect each other completely.

What is re-iterating?
Sorry about that not posting in WIP.
I'll post my screenshot tonight if I have time.
