For this next project im going to attemp a full body...I started off with the head from the roman head WIP I did a few months back and started polishing it even more now that I just finished the baby head and learnt a bunch of stuff...this head is still missing the hair, eyelashes, and eyebrows, but I am very happy with its shape and current lighting/maps. I will do some close ups later...

Used one front reference to help me with proportions, it seems to be looking a little better. I'll finish the legs and then start working on the arms. Then i'll add some more detail.

Looking good!

Are you using box modeling or poly by poly to do the body?

Just asking as when my head gets to a decent state i'm gonna attempt to do the rest of the body so i'm trying to gather peoples methods etc and plan ahead.

Cheers
