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.

So which head modelling tutorials have you followed? I know there's several kicking around the net for C4D.

Most recent was the one that came with R10, the butterfly

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?

I'm modeling a head per day or so, just so I can learn new stuff for the 7th wonder challenge, I think practice is the key. I think you can find a tut for setting up reference images on the cafe.

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.
