I've probably committed every newbie error in the lexicon of 3D with this picture. Not enough wrinkles, poorly defined area around the eyes, distorted texture on the chin and neck and, oh, my disaster in Projection Master, resulting in the lighter patch of skin on the right temple. At least having visible polygons at the base of the neck was a deliberate design decision. But, apart from the stuff I know should have been better, what else should I be doing to improve my work? Grateful for any and all input.
Just so you know .. I've been using ZBrush for about 5 weeks now. My only 3D background is in Poser and dabbling with a free copy of Carrara 1.1, so I am the genuine tabula rasa, both ready and willing to absorb and learn. You're an inspirational and talented bunch .. thanks in anticipation. Cheers.
