Hey GuvNa

I think you are working with a way too dense mesh at this stage of modelling, I would get rid of some edges and define the shape on as low a res mesh as you can then cut in your detail and extra edge loops after

I didn't realise you were using cps, why dont you use Sub D's ??
I find them a lot easier.

well, when your in the animation menu set, go to deform->create lattice, then with the lattice selected you can go to the channel box and under "shapes" you should be able to adjust the number of divisions. then right click on the lattice and go to "lattice points" and pull them around to deform the object.

Not trying to sound rude here but I think your subject matter is way to advanced for you skill level. I would start with some much simpler objects. It is good that it looks like you are moving away from boleens but you really should do some studies on how to get the mesh to do what you want a bit better first. Start with something like an old telephone or headphones. Once you learn how to work the edges and curves you will come back to somehting as advanced as this and do much better. The human face is probably the most tough thing to model. A beautiful womens face is next to impossible.
