HMC 8: Gandalf the grey - bust

well im sorry i didnt post my progress earlier but i wasnt so sure if i wanted to finish this or not. but i think I'll manage, so heres what i have done so far.
Just simple edge extrusion method for the base mesh, with some geometry adjustments in the 2nd subdivision so that i had the appropriate amounts of geometry in the places that Id need them when i sculpt... then the mudbox version. t'was all modeled from scratch using the film as reference as well as some high rez promotional wallpaper images, and general portraits of ian mckellen. (yay google!) I've been working on this in the evenings since monday or so.
obviously the likeness isnt very good yet, but I'll get there

Trust me, Ian had a prosphetic nose on for the films
He already has a big nose in real life, but it wasn't big enough once he had the fake beard and stuff on so they made it bigger
