Thank you for the replies!
jaderberg - Thanks! I think what you’re seeing(in the second image?) is the spec on the ear causing part of it to blend into the background, and then another part that hasn’t been joined to the head yet, so it looks like a strange protrusion when it’s actually not.
BgDM - Sorry about the large images. They’ll be smaller from now on. If you prefer, I’ll remove the ones I have here already.
a) gottcha, I’ll work on that.
c) All yet to come. As I mentioned earlier, I’m roughing out the general shape of everything and joining the halves together first before I go in and start doing fine details and reducing how symmetrical the halves are.
Aidan - Yeah, the ear does need more subsurf, and I will be making things less symmetrical once everything is joined.
Khnum - Thanks for the ref. I was planning to fuse the centre once I joined the two halves, thanks.
