Next I'll split the eyes, brow, cheek and mouth to further the detail. While I do this, I'm getting rid of any triangles and five sided polys that I come accross by running them into the newly formed edge. This also strengthens my edgeloop.

Notice the difference between these 2 steps. Notice how the loop now fits nicely around the brow, eye and cheek whereas before it didn't.

Now that I've got the loop around the eye cleaned up, it's time to go in and fix the loop around the nose. Notice how I have a lot of triangles and the edges aren't exactly flowing with the curve of the laugh line. I'll fix this by running some new edges in the right direction and deleting out the old ones.

Notice how the laugh line is now clearly defined.

Next, finish off the loops at the top of the head. Bring the edges down through the back of the neck to give that area more definition. You can also add on some of the edges that define the muscles of the brow. Then, split up the lower lip a little so that we can begin working on the inside of the mouth.
