    lengthen and thin the neck

    square the chin but not the jaw

    lengthen the face from the cheekbones down

    narrow the mouth, but keep the lips as they are

    New preview: before I start working on De Gaulle again (for which I'll wait until I get the background pic done), I decided to work on another leaderhead for this pack: Ion Antonescu of Rumania.

    As always, suggestions are more than welcome (especially regarding background pics)

    Yeah Yeah enough french jokes. De Gaul was a very tall man. He looked even taller because he had a very long face to go with it, with deep sunken eyes. He looks more like he doest get much sleep. A lot like Chirac actualy.

    heres a pic of Ion. You did a pretty good job. Maybe just a few textures on the hair and face to make him look abit older, and your good.

    Slightly skinnier face possibly, but that might just be the angle in the other pic..

    I'd say perhaps the eyelids need to slope more, and the jaw should be less square. Good work as always, though.

    the first face was way better. Get back to it and just make it a bit more pale.
    And yes, he definitely looked french in the first portrait. I don't know if anyone that posted here has to deal with french ppl on a regular basis... well let's just say a french will never have the expression I see in the last picture :p

    Well, my idea now is to start working on it from scratch. This one has too many morphs loaded (many of which I can't remember now) and just looks kinda weird.

    And thanks for the suggestions for Ion's face. Any idea on background pics for him?

    I have now just started working on De Gaulle from scratch, but I seem to be running into the same problems I had before to shape some "key" parts of his face. However, I'll post a pic previewing this by tomorrow.

    Now I just have two leaderheads to preview once more: first, Moscicki (for whom I'd need suggestions on backgrounds)

    ...and second: Antonescu again, with his uniform complete.

    I need some suggestions on backgrounds for this one as well

    Rumanian flag with coat of arms as a background? I mean I'm not familiar with the country enough to tell you what would be a recognizable landmark that is uniquely Rumanian, unless you count Chouchescu's Palaces??

    Well, I don't know them, and unfortunately, google doesn't know them either

    And do you have any idea for recognizable, yet quite "modern" (not too much, though) Polish landmark?

    Oh, don't worry. I just found a few pics of that place (with their correct spelling), as well as a couple of pics for a possible background for Moscicki of Poland

    Alright... I've started working on a new model for De Gaulle, and here's what I came up with: two versions of the same guy, both of which don't satisfy me yet.
    I'll be posting both, so you can help me decide which one looks more similar to the real guy, and how I could improve it to make it look better

    I'm more partial to the 2nd image, but you guys will decide

    between these two, I prefer #1.
    It might look better to have the nose thinner at the top.

    New preview for De Gaulle. This time I've got this wonderful background made by Bjorn from the SOE forums, and made a few changes on his face (which still doesn't look good IMO).

    So this time (as every other time) I'll accept any suggestions to improve the head, particularly a couple of details at a time, so I don't change completely his face to make a feature better, and suggestions for changes in the background (which I doubt there'll be). I think a narrower nose would look better, and I'll probably have to make his skin tone a bit lighter as well, right? I'll get rid of the excessive bags under his eyes
