Thanks for the input. Encouraging to know it's a good start - it's taken a good few hours.

cheers,

gubar.

it's comming along nice!!, however i suggest you spend some time fixing the geometry because you have some divisons that just end near his chin area, this is why when you smooth it the geometry looks a bit messy

Thanks for the input. I agree about the chin - I had some polygons there but deleted them, going to do the curve under from the chin to the throat a little later.

cheers,

gubar.

hi

from looking at your pic it seems you're having a bit of trouble with the mouth area. so i thought i would show you how i would fix it,

you see ideally you would want the geometry to flow in a circle this makes for better deformation, and is aslo how it is anotomically here is a pic
