Hey SouL,

This is great. Really fantastic texture work in the face and neck. There are a few little odds and sods that look like they could be improved:

- The hair ends abruptly over the left shoulder of the character in the front view. The alpha mapping elsewhere is great though, so this may be a trick of the camera.
- There seems to be a seam between the neck and head in the side view. The 3/4 doesn't seem to have the same problem so I figure it's probably a colour/contrast thing.
- If you could get away with 1 more edgleoop, you could take the angle out of that eyelid. It's a little jarring. Likewise, there's a sharp crease under the lower lip grabs me.
- What's that red burr in his hair?

Meantime this is amazing work, and the points above are only finnicky little things that "take me out of the game" (as a developer mate of mine is fond of saying). You continue to be a great inspiration SouL. Keep 'em coming.

Looking totally cool. The texture work is brilliant and the modeling is ace.
I just wonder tho why one would need such a high polycount on a head alone [assuming a body is to follow]

how does it work, is the map like 50 percent selfilluminated ? or not at all ?

great work mate. inspirational.
