For this final timelapse on Rains head I am taking one of the conceptual sculpts from the previous videos and polishing it into the final head design.

Hey everyone, I am quite new to discord and sharing my art in general. Lately I've been working on my very first sculpting project which I also intend to animate once finished. I've been learning from the Blender Cloud Course: Stylized character workflow of the character Rain. My character will be called May. I've been working on the head for quite some time now and since I'll be starting on the body soon I'd really appreciate any feedback on the shapes/anatomy and general appeal of the character.

*@Bas Raven* Looks really good so far. I see a lot that's going right with this.
Here's some feedback:
Keep looking through perspective view to see how much the ears get lost behind the face and how large the face looks.
The orthographic view can be deceiving on that.

*@Julien Kaspar* Thank you so much for taking the time to give me such valuable feedback. I am stil working on the body but when I come back to the face I will definitely use your feedback.

Great tutorial on workflow! Thanks for sharing your expertise with beginners like me to understand the concept in such an easy manner! Can you also cover teeth modelling, fitting the same in the mouth and opening the mouth....

*@sandeep200680* For the first design sculpts it was not really necessary to include them but I'll talk about it too :)
I'll cover the teeth and inner mouth in chapter 3 when I'll go over the expression tests.

*@Julien Kaspar* Thanks dear friend...looking forward to see how that works!

Will be any content related to lip sync? Or making a dialogue in blender?

*@jhonatansilva31415* No, not in this course. But there is an Animation Fundamentals Course in progress. Maybe ask there:

hey there, what is the use of painting the sclupt in the solid view mode, does it effect the material and render preview?
22nd May 2020 - 11:46
*@Sundaram* It only affects the render if the color you are painting is plugged into the material. It won't automatically use any color information.
22nd May 2020 - 13:58
*@Julien Kaspar*thanks but how to do that?
22nd May 2020 - 14:30
*@Sundaram* Plug the vertex color node into the base color of your material node.

*@Cosimo* eye lids*
16th July 2020 - 12:32
*@Cosimo* The progress is looking good. Eyelids are definitely very tricky to get right, so I can recommend to create them from a sphere object. It will make it easier to get the shapes right before then merging the objects and sculpting the transitions between eyelids and the rest of the face.
Same with the ears. If you have difficulties getting the shapes right, try to separately sculpt them as different objects and then merge them once they look right.
To give some more feedback on the overal proportions: I would look at some more reference for the jaw. In your sculpt it is very pointy right now. In general, the face is getting lifted up the further it goes into the abck of the head. Try lowering the ears, cheeks and jaw corner too make the lower jaw edge a bit more straight.
Here's an example.
You could also push back the chin a bit. The entire mouth region is peaking forward which looks also like a very unnatural under-bite.

*@Julien Kaspar* Thank you for your detailed answer. I will try to implement your tips.

So far this has been really fun. I'm looking forward to finishing the course and getting some more practice in on some different characters. https://blender.cloud/r/HjLhyI https://blender.cloud/r/yIydaS
