Angry simplymaya ninja

hey all
I've started doing this real amazing tutorial on modling a ninja. But have got stuck on one part, spending like AGES on it, and its realy enoying me :headbang:
I really need someones help to get me back on track, I have just sortof roughly finished modling the head. But when kurt comes back into the next part he has like all these edge loops done perfectly, and looks just way better than mine! I was just wondering what way the edge loops are suppose to flow around the face?
cheers

Heres a pic of what its looking like now, in polygons:

Well, it goes something like this.

Also look through this whole thread over at cgtalk on topology, great stuff on edge-looping

Default noob quest

srry for the noob question
I haven't been able to work on maya cause of a school assignment due in, but i'm back into it now . I need sumones help though. I have spent ages trying to add these edge loops to my model, by going into it with the split polygon tool and trying to add lines like in the pic. But i cant get the lines looking right, and its really enoying me :angery: , but i'm still hanging in there.
I would realy appreciate it if someone could please help me by telling me how to get from the model that mine looks like (above), to the one kirts looks like (below), when you come into the next part.
I really want to get better at modling characters, so ANY help would be much much appreciated!
Thanks heaps! :bow:

ya like Mike has said it takes time..... What i would suggest is take a break from the head for a bit and move on to the body. Then come back into the head with fresh eyes. I find that helps me when i'm not geting the right look or result.

I dont know if these edge loopings are looping the correct way or not, i'd realy appreciate it if someone can tell me if they are going the right way or wrong way.
Thanks heaps
Meredith

Question Meredith

When you do the clothes, are you extruding the original model
or are you making a new model covering and combinding it
afterwards?

Nice work
