Hey there,

I've been working on this model for an animated short I'm planning to do. This is my first attempt at modeling and rigging, so I've made quite a few mistakes along the way. I rigged this model a few weeks ago and had a couple of problems with the eyes and the mouth, so I decided to try and fix the topology as much as a could and then restart the rig from scratch.
(Here is a link to the old rig: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mwYLKWK2BC0 )

I've changed the eyelid and mouth topology a bit, but I'm honestly at a loss as to how to really fix this model for rigging, so I decided to post here hoping that someone more experienced than I am can give me a hand and point me in the right direction :~)...

Here is the topology of the model right now:

Any sort of input is greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance :~)!
