I think you are on the right track, it needs some refining, go to the first post of this thread and have a look at my mesh, you'll see the loops in that

hey dude..!

well thats looking better, I'd personally aim for less polys at this stage but its still going well., so dont worry.

Just keep at it. We all have different ways that work for us as individuals so just carry on...if you are happy then it will show in the work - which it evidently is here

cheers
Jay

A minor note: The eyelids should not cast shadows on the eye.

Here is the way I like to do it without that gap.

First I select my eyeball and I make it live by hitting the magnet button. If you cant find the magnet just write "MakeLive;".

Then just select the vertixes you would like to edit and move them using the circle in the move tool. I usually move the vertixes one at a time.

There seem to be some things that should be changed regarding anatomy but a picture of a human explains that better then me.

Just some general tips;

I usually start making the ears using nurbs curves and lofts when i have finished the basic lofts i template the meshes(there's a shelve button for it or i use layers) and start tweaking the curves.

I usually start from the sideview, using the create polygon tool (keep in mind that you're roughing out the shapes so keep the number of points at a minimum)tracing the outline of the head, which basically creates a big face, then i extrude the face and then delete the face, then i extrude edges letting the front and side image guide me, when the head is taking shape i use a mirrored smooth proxy at start tweaking whilest looking at refference pictures(see picture for example)

And last; Learn Nurbs, i to absolutely hate them because once you screw up it's back to the drawingboard, but if you master them your modeling will improve.

Hey guys,

I just recently switched to Maya from XSI and have spent the last 2 weeks studying topology, so this is a perfect thread. Other than an issue with the ears, let me know what you think.

Thanks




Feel free to check out my portfolio and reel. Everything on there was done in XSI before the switch.
