now it matches the chin
How are you going to give her hair?
Also, you have to give her a body after that, it wouldn't be complete without it. Just imagine how cool

The best results with hair that I've seen (aside from the Final Fantasy hair plugin rumered to be included in Maya 6) is using thin strips of geometry, textured with hair and lots of transparancy.

Hi Anita

Yeah you gotta decide when to stop tweaking it , as it will drive you nuts!! My advice would be to start the hair then once you get that right you'll see your character take even better shape, then you can go back and tweak stuff you're not happy with.

My texture was done by taking a uv snapshot of the mesh into photoshop texture it and then back in again to adjust any stretching, the only real problem area was around the nostrils but that was rectified fairly quick!!

If you want to see a Uv snapshot of the mesh leave me your email and I'll send it to you with some more instructions if you get stuck

Later

Jango

It is looking like her. I hate hair. I do not know to many people who do not mind it. It does look like time to start the textureing.
