Default the PJ's character WIP

this is my first character head
im taking a maya course and we learned how to cube up model this morning and i thought i would post my head project so far, it will later be used as a lip sync model for some sort of comedy clip.

its based off calvain from the clay animated tv series the PJ's



let me know what you think and give me some suggestions as to how to improve it.

Cool, I really like this characters style. As ransick said the geometry is not too clean.
Good work so far, I will be watching this thread.

here is a video animation of the cartoon head doing a lip sync

RIGHT CLICK SAVE AS

it requires a divx codec so dont download it until you have the codec installed

see below for updated link

let me know what you think, this is my first stab at everything from head modeling to blend shapes to everything
good? bad?
