Nice!

The Geo is nice and clean. I think you need to make his head slightly broader though, at least that's what i get from looking at your drawing, although it could just be the perspective.

nice work!

Thanks Mayaniac:attn: LOL

I dont work on characters a lot mostly environments so after thousands of hours of watching tuts I decided it was time to re-make my character. I am doing the body now. The thing that stoped me from doing characters was when I first started I found my self much better at environments and could not get that edgeloop flow thing down. I watched this guy construct a face with the perfect edge loops in minutes on this tut recently and it inspired me. The method he used can be used for any character and its fast and easy.I always had so much trouble with the face that I focused on environments. Now I am going to start doing characters as well and start zbrushing LOL!

Oh by the way I made the head a little skinnier than the reference to be stylized. Thanks for the critique.

Here is a link to that tut that got me back character modeling.

Thanks Rhetoric . Yeah I smooth the pants out already thats why its so dense. I wanted to see if they had the shape I wanted finished. I have smoothed most of the geometry except the jacket in these wires. I have smoothed everything including the hands I built in the new wires I will be posting. Thanks for the crit.
