I've inserted an edge loop in the chin area. I think i have finished with the head, will start modeling the ear.

not bad.

usually the top of the ear connects to the head a little lower down - there is normally a kind of an overlap where your ear curls round, before it connects.

Started texturing the head, made the texture from the image of a man and changed it in photoshop.

I think the textures need more work. Will do that... To make it look more realistic i think i will export it into Zbrush, add more detail and then export the displacement map back into maya.

Before going into Zbrush, I would recommend tweeking the ear as arran suggested

if you really want to, but, you still have the underlying geometry possibly in the wrong place/position, its always worth getting the base mesh down in maya or your app then go into Zbrush to add the detiails.
