View Full Version : Head Topology Advice

04 April 2006, 07:48 PM
Hi, im currently attempting to create my first character and im starting with the head. could someone please take a look at the topology below and give me some advice? it needs tweaking but when it is done it will be used to model my characters head using the plane method (this is a pre-defined technique and i must model it this way) in 3ds Max.
many thanks guys and feel free to take the image and play about with it !

Well it looks good to me, the topology is alright but now it need details of course, i think you can continue with this one without problem... Is it polygons ?

well at the moment i havnt actually began the modelling, i want to get all the design work acurate so itl save me time wen it cones to modelling but when i do begin it will be polygonal modelling in Max. For the head it is specified that i have to model it using planes, which is why i need the front and side topology to be accurate first. obviously i will betail the model up as i work into it and add subdivisions.
Can any one give me advice/tutorial/templates for the profile veiw as thats the one im having the most problems with

Ok well heres what i have so far. its not nearly finished yet but you get the idea of what im going for. i kno there are a few problems with it and obviously the seam is one of them but thats easy enough to sort out. i would be grateful for any criticism and/or advice so far and please dont be afraid to speak your mind!

If you display your model with the "wireframe on shaded" mode it will be easier to see what you've done.
