My first WIP post- character
This is the beginnings of a character i am making to use in my final year project at uni. Not too sure where its going. Things will change but i just thought it'd be nice to have some feedback and suggestions.

The ears certainly need adjusting for a start...just noticed that lol
anyway here goes...

Great start bud...The only area you should take a look at is under his nose its really square where the nostrils are. Bring down the middle part and the side of the nostrils...


Good stuff....

I like it. The style is pretty neat. Only thing I can see from the pic is under the nostrils there appears to be a ridge there. Now where is the body? LOL

That guy looks wicked! Nor evil or friendly in character.

Good character-design. I guess the big nose did it.

Cheers guys I see exactly what u mean - hey at least I can say one thing about his nose...Its better than Michael Jackson's

wchamlet - i do tend to become over indulgent with heads before i start the bodies, its a bad habit of mine heheh but i will do it - promise lol

Anyway here is an update - I have practically rebuilt the nose and restyled the ears a little. Oh and ive added some proper eyes. The shading is just a temporary thing.

Hey, that looks great. I like the hard edges you have in your character. It's not like most cartooned characters, which are mostly smooth. I think your style for this head works great. Only thing I see now is the seem on the chin.

You're not alone when you say you model the heads first. I do the same thing usually since heads are the hardest thing to model. If you don't have a good face, there's no use building a body I say. Good job on what you've done so far. Is this one polygons or nurbs? Wait, wait. Let me guess...... polys?

Looks great! I like the style. Only thing, looks like there's a bump under the lips and on the chin.
