I like it. It's got a very neat style. How are you going to do the eyes? Small, or large? I like the smooth proxy mode too. Or is this CPS? I've actually started using the smooth proxy mode a lot lately, and I find it really does help you when you're creating your model. Only thing I've found is I like to see the wireframes all the time, and when you get into a lot of detail, there are sooooooo many wireframes everywhere.
Good stuff man, keep it up!
