Organic Modeling

I’m trying to get better at organic modeling, but I’m really getting messed up. I’m decednt with architecture (sp?), but mainy because its all basic shapes and all you have to do is extrude and scale them to your liking, but with organic things I just can’t get the hang of it. I’ve seen the Joan of Arc tutorial, but that hasn’t really helped me much. I know how to work out a mesh with a background image, but with some things you can’t work with one. Whenever I try to make something organic, I try to shape the head first then work my way down, but I can’t get it too look like a living thing.

Can anyone help?
