Hey thanks for the wire. Overall its clean, which is aleays a good sign, but I think you could lose a few polys around the nose area at this stage and also the cheeks, especially if you are converting to SubD it doesn't need to be this dense just yet. You need to shape the polys around the mouth and eyes as if they were going around in a circle, basically get them to loop.
Keep going on the model dont uv it just yet though.

Hi Al

I think you are confusing SubDs with Subdivided, SubDs are Subdivision Surfaces, basicall an algorythm smoothing of polys.
Subdivided is as in faces/quads or triangles (poly menus)

alrighty some tweaking done mostly on the eyes.. they are still slightly weired because i ran out of time before work :| but i'll get back on em later.. ive been fitting the eyelids around a sphere
im gonna make the eyelids a bit thicker too and the right corner of the eye is to round..

Hi Al

I think you are on the right track but there are some bits that really stick out here. The bridge of the nose is way too sharp and needs to be softened as its got huge crease. And also the line you have from the edge of the lips to the base of the nose is too low. I have drawn on your image, hope you dont mind, so you can see what I mean, also the brow needs to come out more.
I'm not trashing you or your model I just hope this is constructive enough for you to improve your model

Later

Good work. But you might want to add a fractual for the blue of the eye.

_J: np man c&c is always good.. however the model is lit almost strait from the side in that shot so the bridge looks sharper than it acually is.. i agree on the other stuff tho

peltra: yeah i know eyeshaders are not final.. the eyeballs are just there for reference right now

well didnt get much done on the model today
ive been playing around with mental ray shaders.. man those rock onething escapes me tho.. for dgs and dielectric.. is there really no way to set the number of rays? changeing in the render globals doesnt do it and ive found two tutorials in diffrent sites sating that the only way to get smooth blurred reflections is to up the sampleing, this however doubbels the rendering time :/

if anyone knows a way to up the rays used by mental rays baseshaders please do tell
