Hey, btw... when modelling like this, do you start from a plane in the eye socket, then extrude out a few and then delete the center? Just wondering .

I started with a small plane in the bottom of the eye socket then extude edges round the eye, then do the same round 1 half of the mouth - combine the two separate parts then split poly then go fromthere extruding edges, merging verts

I believe you captured the curvature of your lips quite well.
This method seems to work out for a lot of people.

here is a bit more - got to add the ears next - oh dear

I think ears are probably the hardest thing to model on the head - for me anyway - least I am not going for a photo-realistic head
