@ booneeto :
I work with Blender for 6 years ago. Before I worked on 3DSMax and C4D, but when I have learnt using Blender I find this software really for me …

@ mxyzptlk :
At first, brows are really less rounded but Pinhead looks like a prehistoric human … :hmm:
For the symmetrical effect, it’s another problem and a real personal point of view. In fact, during the sculpt, I create a real none symmetric face design ; but at the end of this part of the process, Pinhead looks too human and less evil, the glance looks less hypnotic. I was sure people notes the face is a little symmetrical, but nevermind, I play the game ! :rolleyes:


Here is a little making-of, enjoy it … :smiley:
