Made some skin bumps . I put all of these extra deformations ( bumps, wrinkles, ..) on layers so i can control the intensity of them.

This is looking pretty good. The only crit I have is that the wrinkles look a little harsh.

Are you going to model the entire body, or just the head?

The wrinkle are set on a layer and i can reduce de intensity of the layer meaning the intensity of the wrinkles. I only made the head but i will start to model the body and atach the lowest division of this head on it. Here is another picture, made a scar on the head

Hard to see from this angle, but if his arms aren't bent backwards the upper part is a bit short, and also the whole arm should be placed a bit higher, close to the shoulder. The feet looks a bit big and wide. And I'm not sure what's going on with the lower part of the leg...can't really remember if that's exactly how those muscles flows... anyways these crits are for a human... so you may decide to flush my opinions down the toilet.

I made the body from a tutorial and that guy from the tutorial made it exactly like mine. I know that the proportions are off but at this stage i am only making the muscles and stuff. After i will finish the body i will atach it to the vampire head, the map the Uv's on it then i will send it into Zbrush where i will refine it and make the proportions correct.

Ive got to agree with DJ on the shoulders, I find that tutorials should be taken as more of a guide rarther than a rule.
