Default first head modeling attempt in maya

finally found some time to do some modeling in maya... well, not really *found* the time; rather took it

the idea here is to make a basic head with as few polys as possible, then layout the UVs before detailing and personalizing. With this approach, I can re-use the basic head for a variety of characters... seems to work too

so, here it is:

Wow, this head looks really nice! It reminds me of someone from asia, for some odd reason, which is very cool .

yep they do, guess that's why they have this asian flair

I'm surprised though: would've thought the apparent lack of auditive organs was more obvious

Is her neck supposed to curve up in the front, or is it just my terrible eyes?

Wow, cool
It's a nice head... I pessonaly use the same method... but... but my heads don't look so well.

For Hybrid: yes there in the front vertices curve up because there is nothing at the botom of the neck, if you let the poly face on the botom of the neck, the margins will be rounded and closed.
