Yea I understand that perfectly, it's just that I reckon that you could make it a bit more "efficent" round that area, whilst keeping the same level of detial....

This is how I would go about it if it was my model.

Just cleaned it up a bit really. I know that having all quads in a game environment isnt a requirement but if your planning on animating and/or sculpting out a normal map reducing the tris helps you out as they can possibly be a bit "lumpy" when sculpting.
