Well right now the neck area is a problem, the face could use some work, support loops for the nasolabial fold are missing…i cant really tell for the rest since the images are so tiny.

Here’s something that could help:

Basically shows how to “block in” the initial mesh to have main edgeloops.

Here’s a DVD tutorial for modeling anatomy with “local detail”


For the past 4 years I have always Right Click > Save Image As wireframe images that artists post. Whenever I find myself stuck, I go back to those images and see how they did it, study their pole placement, and then go back into my model to achieve that same effect. Its worked every time! I would suggest getting into that habit. I have 2 useful folders: Wireframes and Anatomy. Whenever I’m lurking/browsing these forums and come across good topology, sculpting, etc., I save it. It’ll come in use!
