slight update, started playing with sculpting the beard detail (not happy with it yet) and blocking in the main hair clumps on the head. Still plenty on the hair to do!

The beard is looking really nice. Are you going to add the same level of detail for hair on his head?

cheers THX1138
I'm not sure about the hair being super detailed as the mesh is already up to 250k polygons in Mudbox. Depends how much this computer will take

Quick update on reshaping the hair and adding some more detail. Also altering the ear angles and a little tidy up:

cheers for the crit goksimaster
I'm not too happy with the ears either, like you say they are a little flat. I've beefed them up a bit but not enough yet. I've also popped in the eyeballs to help with the eyes a little.

Well nearly there for this model, think I'm gonna go back and remodel the hair/beard on the previous chap and see how that goes. I've also learned lots about mesh densities and how important they can be when importing/exporting between programs so its all good stuff
Think I need to change the camera settings so that the angles look better but that can wait

it's looking really great t1ck.

I think the problem with the eyes is that the lower lid looks the same width all the way along as it goes under the upper lid. I might pronounce the overlap and also make the lower lid less wide as it goes under. Hope that makes sense.

Hello,
I should have seen this sooner. It is looking really good. I like the eyes like they are cause they look like they are stone (I assume you want it to look like a statue)The only thing i can see is the ears are a litle off and the neck looks like it has a tumor or somthing.

MrTerminator - thanks

arran - yeah I know what you mean about the eyes - I've not actually touched them so a little playing (along with adding eyebrows) should help a little

Some Guy - cheers, yeah just seen the 'tumour' like bit in the neck - it must have been somewhere I forgot to smooth off after playing
The ear just needs some more bending to match the original ref but I have been working off multiple refs and some are not as pronounced as that so its just a case of guessing at what would be better.

Realistically I should actually go back to the base maya mesh and tweak the eye/ear sections and have a go at rescuplting from scratch. It would definitely help having the hair and beard blocked in on the mesh and added with quite a lot of lines/edgeloops as it would mean that I could get a lot more detail in those areas. Maybe a play with subdiv patches before importing into mudbox might be the way...

Si

great modeling, the part that strikes me and maybe you have noticed it is the eyebrow area, its too sharp.
