Head Model

Recommended Posts

Can anyone here help to get me started on this? I'm trying to model a human head from some reference photos. I've tried a bunch of tutorials, but can't seem to get the first thing right... The eye. I need some really specific tips to get me rolling on this and would greatly appreciate any help. I'm a noobie to organic modeling.

I'll upload my file to show you where I am so far.

Yes sort of if you have the patience and skills. Just a matter of using edge extrudes / create polygon tool and matching how they did things in the tutorial.

There's a few head modelling tuts that are more in depth than one in the Anne Powers book although that one is quite good. I think it's a matter of just getting better over a period of time when it comes to human modelling.

Good luck.

I think it may be the setup of my reference photos. I can never seem to get that right. When I have everything perfect in the front view, it never seems to match in the side view. Am I messing something up there?

Modeling a human(head) is very difficult and you have to practise a lot. Not 1 week, not 1 month, not 1 year but after a couple of years you will see that it become a second nature. :)

also this one, under the tutorial section. the only thing with this one is to watch for extra cuts made, but very good overall.
