I'm thinking of modelling a polar bears head (reminds me of the dissertation I wrote on them at uni).
I'm going to start with the base skull to get a generic head shape and then model over it with the skin/muscle layer.
If anybody finds any good top/front ortho photos/drawings of a polar bear skull then post the link up (I already have the side and a poor top shot)
The biggest challenge will be the fur and the final lighting/rendering shots so here's hoping 2 months is long enough
Good luck all!
