I have tried as a noobie, and it's possible, and a bit time consuming, but, it is quicker than most techniques I've seen used.
Also, it's an easy way to make a detailed face to start with. Most curve stuff is usually nurbs.

Here's an example I got of patch modeling from http://www.highend3d.com/maya/tutori...nurbs/164.html

Hope this helps.

Default add isopharms

you have to rotate the sphere sideways put an isoparm near the front and go detach surfaces and delete the inner one.add three more isopharms and use the hulls to pull the front two isopharms out.i can show you if i new how to take a screen shot.if you find out how.i can walk you yhrough it.
