Before one year I saw tutorial in the head at http://www.secondreality.ch/. And my style of the modeling isn?t so different from it. One of the basic rules is: model should have from 99 per cent four-cornered polygons. And edges of the model needs characterize/copy skull and face?s muscles.
There are several good techniques of the modellings of the head and every one have something best. I have preferably this technique of the gradual wraped-up details because I work with total model and I have continual control also other parts than Iam modeling now.
I used Sherpical mapping and then adjuste in uvw unwrap mainly with using of the Soft selection.
I maped only one half and I used before it modificator Symmetry. After the Symmetry I indicated one half mirrored, turned up and put together with implement Weld. And the outcome you can see here.
