woohoo a starter! Great job for starting this off tweek! One thing, that face is remarkable! Im scared man, im thinking you could pass for normal. The only thing i am not so sure of on your model would be its nose and mouth.. i would make the mouth area more rounded at the end, and i would work on his lips.. or teeth or whatever that crease is in his lower lip. If its his teeth, i suggest doing them seperately. For the nose, it seems extruded on the sides, instead just make the nose merge into the model. those are my points. But the general shape you have is really nice!

looks sweet but as m said the nose looks kinda funny.. remember that the nose an most animals sorta bulge out on the sides.. kinda rounded outwards if you know what i mean?
if not it may look lika a snout (pigs nose)

but still looking very cool youve deffinetly got modeling skillz dude
the eye sockets/forehead reigion kicks serious ass and i think the mouth is pretty cool too

yeah basicly thats what i ment
looks lots better
you might wanna pull the top of the nose back a little and also push the whole into the head a little bit more

but it looks very good and the teeth and down right scary(in a good way)


(used liqufy in php to sjow you kinda what i mean)

Man, perfect addition! Lol, how about you check this out! My dino and your bear are in style! Your bear though has a cooler nose ring, and more teeth .

Heheh, but yea, I am loving this! I suggest on one of the two fangs you break it off 3/4 of the way up.. like he lost part of it in a battle or when he bit into a rock.. (stupid bear). Anyways yea, great job so far, and i agree with al on the nose thing, i was just about to say pull it up abit. I think the thickness of his lower mouth/jaw is a bit too thin though, or its coming inwards, it should not dip in at the neck. I am still amazed at the eye area though, great job!

great job on the teeth!

I like the broken tooth, but maybe make the break a bit more jagged?
