Good head tutorial?

Hey,
Does anyone know where to find a good tutorial for making a (fairly) realistic head in Anim8or?
Thanks,
Tiula

I tried the plugin but it came up really weird on my comp: the face was all jagged and apparently it couldn't load textures? Anything I can do?

If you donít want to create the head yourself, then you could use http://www.makehuman.org/.

i think it takes alot of practice to get a good head modeled. and when i say alot i mean alot. if u notice on all of the real movies that has cgi in it the human heads are all cartoonish heads. only realistic head models ive seen are fomr beowolf (i think they cheated and scanned the real humans heads) and the final fantasy 7 movie (its not very humanlike but its as close as ive seen). oh also in the matrix animatrix they did a great job on one of thier features.

ive mostly been working on human modeleing and its taken up pretty much all of my time in modeling. but what i can tell u is u need to work and work and work to get ti realistic. or work and work and work to have ur own style. either way u learn and have fun doing it.

what you need to do (i havent done it completely yet) is to focus on your edge loops. i think they are set that way for animation. but u can do your own thing if it fits the profile. just remember all of the aspects of 3d art and animation.
