1. use the best refrances you can get.. pref a friend and take pictures. with dots on them so you can tell really how far out every thing patrudes .. match up the dots in front and side view.

I prefer the method where you start from the eye area and work out.

I think theres really no better way to model a head. It's what your comertable with. Just model different heads different ways and evently you'll find one for yourself.

agreed. My preference is with polygons as described in the head tutorial here at SM.
