Default Forehead wrinkles

Ok, Ive got this guy started.........Im just wondering.....should I model all of the wrinkles, or put them in the bump map, or maybe just do the big wrinkles, and then bump map the smaller ones on.

cool man, i luv the face, im starting to try maya this instant, i just got it
but, as an drawing artist, ( not a that good 1 ) liek dbz style, and the trick is to just put the outlines in, then put the best seen details in, in this case the big wrinkles.
i think thats what you should do if your making a cartoonish face...
