craigomatic: I’d rather not yet, if it doesn’t bother anyone. There’s less pressure to succeed with a finished product over in here.
zog34, which one? I put a couple poles in on purpose. I’ll work on getting rid of the one you’re talking about if you get back to me.
orinoco, thanks for the picture, I’ll try the big over-arching loops with retopo or some such, and I’ll see if I can define the zygomatic arch a little better. The way it blends into the ear is nice, too. Also, I’ll see about bringing the ears out a little, I pretty much modeled them flat, so you’re probably right, now that I look at it. I’ll check in a mirror. Thanks for that. :]
I don’t particularly like your nose or eye topology though, they’re too segregated and symmetrical and there’s not a lot of organic flow to them. The cheek-bones look weird too, because you also cut out the vertical lines for the masseter muscles and tendons for the upper lip, by sticking that triplet of interrupting poles on her cheek down there.
Also, I’d much rather not just be relegated to some guy’s topic, external topics are always intensely impersonal and impossible to have a conversation with, and the good ole’ ‘list o’ authors’ approach you used means I will almost definitely find contradicting information, as people are always going different ways on the subject. As it is, I find it hard to get useful, consistent information out of them.
