View Full Version : Extend or not?

I am working on this head and am having trouble finding the best way
to finish the back of it. I have tried to extend from the top down to
the neck but that leaves little wings that stick out on the side. I believe
it may be best to extend everything toward the ear, what do you think?

you might find it useful to reduce the detail (amount of polys) as you go back from the forehead.

Go to www.yahlls.com for some nice pdf tuts on this.

I'd check out the head tut in inside lw 7 aswell or 3d modeling and animation by peter ratner (find his tuts on the web go to flay.com) or buy the book

hope this helps

Check out this link:


Study some of the great wireframes there and see how people build their meshes. There are quite a few heads there to look at.
