WIP- Bruce Wayne/ Christian Bale

So ive started a WIP on Christian Bale, This is my first human figure so any help pointing out errors would be a great help. Ive made the head and some of the loops on the cheek are not as good as they should be but i dont know how to correct them without adding loads more topology. The neck/sholders are where im at currently and just trying different ways to get the flow correct.

Quick update:

Thinking of now taking it into Zbrush to sculpt. Is it best to do the UVs before i take it in or after?? I will be using PS for textures.

I think you take yours references too serious. Because Picture have always distortion in it. Your front view have a big distortion. Its a great view has a base but if you understand the len distortion you can ajust.

Now we lose his ears.

The side view is perfect if you rotate it a little. Because you take is forehead exactly like the picture, but the forehead is not so advance.

try to match your head in 3quart view with this picture. You will fill the difference:

Thank you for the feed back, i have taken what you have said and i've tried to rework the model. Ive improved the ears and have them pretruding out for the head more. Also had a look at the forehead and tired to get it to match better to the 3quart view. Im still not 100% about the shape of it either that or ive just been staring at it to long. Any way heres another update. (ive just noticed that i have moved the nostril verts and made it to crow like ooops)

Blocking the main shapes are always a pain. But When you done, its easier.
