Default Cartoon dog tutorial (part 1)

Hi! I encounter my first problem @ about 5:10, where Kurt is about to form the dog's head.

When i try to form the sphere it gets very wierd, and not at all as smooth as Kurts (see image below).

What do i do wrong?

(btw. i'm running Maya unlimited v.6)

I'm talking about forming the sphere, draging a vertex using the move tool, that is. When doing this it doesn't form as beautifully as on the tutorial... understand my problem?

hm.. i think i understand what you say. i'm guessing the problem is when u select a vertice to move on side view by clicking on it it only takes the top vertice, there is another vertice under that vertice that u do not select therefore having bad results. instead of clicking on the vertice try clicking and draging to select it, this way it will select the vertice at the back too.
