Default My first head. What do you think?

Been at 3D for just under a month and decided I would try a head. Here is where I've got to. I got the eye shader from the net but am in the process of making my own (I dont like to steal).

Any coments or criticisms would be appriciated

Some points are, The forehead could be more pronounced. Maybe a little bigger around, on the nose ring.

If this is your first head, then its damn good. Keep it up !

If you want some critique, then look here, if not "dont read on"

- something strange going around in the mouth area where you have some strange surface wrinkles.

- Your cheek is looking like it could use some more definition.

- the ear looks like its taped on the side of the head, and its not a part of the head surface.

- the eyebrows looks funny.

- the forehead loosk a bit flat to me.


How to recover:

Take a look on the net, and see if you can find information about surface loops or edge loops. I bet this will help you alot. Even if its 3D Studio MAX tutorials, read them and learn, you can always adapt to maya.

as I said its good work for at first timer - keep it going, you're on the right track
