Its a bit bumpy and has way to much going on in the lower lips downwards. Reduce some of the Geo to allow better control of the forms first then add what you need late

Hi Jay,

may I add this link. I know its Zbrush but some of the stuff I think will add to your fine tuts and directions. Amazing stuff, in particular he talks about 'planes' on the human face etc...good stuff.

Cheers bullet

@Bullet

nice mate, yeah Scott Eaton is a friend of a friend of mine in London. My friend is a CG supervisor at MPC and knows Scott who I believe was at Framestore the last I heard. I was asked by my friend to help out develop some courses he and Scott were planning to do as a type of college where people can go and learn 'proper' cg for film and tv, I was asked to help but it never came to fruition.

This particular part of that article is something Ive been preaching for years, if people dont wanna listen to myself LOL then read on.....its all production related...

Ok, this is another attempt at creating a head. This head is low poly. Any tips and critique would be greatly appreciated.

So i'm going to try and model out a drawn character and would like some confirmation on the facial topology to make sure i have the general direction accurate as well as proportions because for some reason i think the skull might be too small...
