Default Bolthead

Inspired by an Aardman tutorial I saw in 3D World mag recently, I decided to make my own head to get stuck into some facial animation and lip-syncing.

I haven't finished the model yet but I am in a dither as to wether to just keep it polygon looking or sud-d/smooth it. It's really only an experiment in animation you see…

What do you lot think?

Looks interesting..
If your not sure if you are going to leave it polygon looking, why not try softening the normals so the edges aren't as hard. That way it will look smoother whilst retaining its polygon looks
