Subdivision Modeling a Head in LW

Now lets create the basic mesh. If you like to model like this always keep in mind to try to use as less polys as possible.
In the right view I move all vertuces to the left side where I need those points on the front part of the head. The back side of a human head can be done with less then 8 polys. (I forgot before you start moving vertices, press F2 to center the object and activate symmetry mode)

After moving you will end up with something like this

I have selected the front polys and smooth shift them 1 time (you will receive some extra polys afterwards). I've also moved some of the vertices to create a head shape.

For the head detail I first start making the eyes. I will create the basic eye shapeout of these polys just by moving some of them into the right place.
