    hey this is looking great so far. It may be easier for people to give you feedback if you had a screen shot without the skin (pore) detail. It distracts from the underlying shapes which imo are the important shapes to get right. Anyway as i said it's looking good so far i just don't know what's going on with his lips on his left side, is that how he looked like in real life? Also the skin underneath the eyelid may be a little too flat. I'm talking about the underlying structure not the detail you put on top of it. And last but not least the vain detail on his neck looks like it still needs a little love.
    Looking forward to seeing how this turns out

    Thanks, i will certainly refine the lip detail on my second pass, thanks for the heads up

    Nils Meyer.

    Thanks for the feedback, The strange lip curl is correct, the result of botched surgery to remove a large cyst when he was in the airforce.

    Glad you like my progress and can see the likeness, i need to go back and rework the skin detail but unfortunately i forgot to use a seporate layer so it's going to be a little more work than i first intended. doh.

    Really well done. Was there any particular reference photo of Cash you refered to more than others? A lot of what I see of him on the internet are relatively younger photos.

    Its looking great. I noticed in the vid though that his left jaw seems wider. Something in the video made him look very uncomfortable in that area. Like it was numb or something. haha.

    Thanks Brett, i'm walking the line with this one, lol. I don't think anatomy books were written with Johnny in mind, everything about his face is just wrong, or at least that is my instinct when i try to sculpt his mug.
    Asymmetry to the max, which is actually harder to do than it thought, your noggin tells you one thing but the reference never lies.
