I've taken the photos of the little man and I've made a start. I will post something soon. mayafreak3 you're not wrong about being able to take good high res photos for texture . . . I've already done that bit Taking photos is the easy bit.

Cheers

you could make your life easier if you take a 3/4 shot of his face, apply a projection mapping on your model in the same angle as the photograph, and ajust it from there, course you wouldnt be able to rotate all around, but if you mirror this should look perfect from any front view
