Yeah hopefully
Do we need to use the base mesh you provided? Or is there a lower Polygon version? Im finding this one a bit too high.

You can delete edges and stuff to use as you want, I supplied the head so people can get on straight away.

No mate, thats the point of me supplying the mesh out of the kindness of my heart , so you dont have to do it the long way, especially if the time is limited.

As I said you can do what you want to the mesh to make it work.

Okay sounds good! My idea was to create my Baby sister (hence why the adult male head you provided was prooving a teeny bit tricky) but ill be right

Cheers!

Small bit of work, just doing the mouth and getting it all in proportion.
Is there a way to Overlay an image with transparency in ZBrush? so i can compare easier.
Its quite a challenge to be subjective with this, as i am making myself and need to resist the urge to 'pretty' myself up hehe.

Not sure if it'll help at all, and it's not exactly the right way of doing it, but you could turn the photo of yourself into a stencil, then position it over the mesh to compare, then just switch the stencil off and on whenever you need it.
There's probably an easier way as you'd have to re scale it each time.
Just a thought though.
