Jim, thanx mate, thats some sound advice!
Thats a good point about the lighting on his eyes. The other points i am trying to improve is the candle lighting. Looks a bit unrealistic, with the shadow of the candle flame on the wall.
Trying to think a way around it, as its a nurbs sphere, tweaked, so its hard simulating a light that doesn't cast unrealistic shadows on it.
With the shadow on the eyes, there is a window frame that casts the shadows over that sort of area, so perhaps i need to think about that.
Thinking about it now, once you said it, the eyes do tell the biggest story.
Keep em coming. I'l keep posting updates too
those who succeed are only the failures that never gave up.
