Talking Suggestions on my first poly head

I made my first head following Dave K's Poly Head Modeling tutorial. I have not finish this model fully but I just wanted to ask you guys about the eye socket and the nostrils after being smoothened why does it still look like that? And for such a small model it has too many edges. Any suggestions?? Thanks!

hmmm I see your problem mate, I have seen many people try the method you are using and some find it very hard to use!

It is impossible to say where you have gone wrong without close up wireframes.

Have you looked at the polygon head walkthrough video here: http://www.simplymaya.com/movie_page...html?tut_id=54

IMO it is a far easier way to do the head.... but I guess each person has there own way.

Um .. screenshot wire frame..
There are many ways of head modeling.. i dont use this method... i find methods used by bay raitt cube.phlatt.net/home/spiraloid
and a method at www.thehobbitguy.com very usefull.. they all keep edge loops and a mesh that is natural and easily used in animation.
