pole question

First off, I’d like to thank Torq for his face tutorial… allowed me to create this in minutes at the most.

Anyways, my question is this: is it appropriate to have a pole here (and one you can see more toward the back of the head)?


Granted, this will likely end up having hair there (notice I put this in the WIP section), but being picky as I am, I dont like having the shading problem there if it doesn’t need to be. Is there a simpler fix for this? I tried earlier but the polycount was getting rather high for what seemed to be a quick fix. Should I just not worry about it?


(I’ll post more pics as I progress on the model, I just wanted to get this sorted out real quick)

I don’t think it’s a problem, it’s what I have on my head (in Blender that is)


I could be wrong though
