Thanks Dave

yeah it is popping out of place, i'll take care right away.

and a funny thing about the nose, when i first started working on the model i was like "damn how the hell am i ganna solve the nose part" so i said to my self if i can't fix the nose then i'm not ganna enter, so im guessing it's looking fine for a first post :attn:

Update:

- played around with the ears

- the nose was a bit to high so i brought it down a bit, reduced its size, and smoothed the nose bridge.

- shaped the eyelids

- added something to the forehead and shaped it a bit

- fix the mouth like dave has suggest

And did an overall smooth to the whole model

C&C are welcome

Hi Lion`I
Your lighting or specularety is making it hard to see the detail of your model, could you change back to what you where using...............dave

Hi Lion`I
Looking good, soften the lower lip ( you can take a edge loop out if you are working in maya), jaw still looks to square soften that and just under the nose need softening.......hope this helps dave
