set myself a limit of 5000 triangles max for the whole character. so far ive modelled the head. the head will be fully animated with eye and mouth movement. i have tried to capture the arrogant look of the guy and the overall feel of authority. im still working on little features like his uneven eyes, his slightly to one side nose and his downturned mouth, all of which should make him have more personality.
