Default HARAKIRI

been thinking about doing an animation for a while so i came up with some sketches and did my story board
so i started modelling the main character last night havent gotten that far yet just modelled the head and his head gear

so do i need to make any changes to the face i tried as much as possible and to avoid any triangles but couldnt escape getting poles. the face will have minimal animations other than a few expressions

cool - i like this a lot! it does look like the modeling could do with a bit of a clean up - around the lips like hammer said and the eyes / forehead? i like the way you stylize the features though - and the helmet is looking cool.

sorry to hear about your kid - not good.

the body looks like it needs a bit of work - the arms look too thin for a start. i'm not sure about the armor - it also seems thin and a bit shapeless... i think it would be good to see the body on it's own - if you haven't got that right then the armor will not look good.
