So I finally managed to finish the hair. I will mention that this was my first true attempt at making hair in Maya, before I never really got this far with a character that I need to do hair. While I learned a lot in the process of making the hair, it took for ever to finish it. I did 4 layers of hair to give it some volume, and it still doesn't quite look the way I thought it would. But for now this is good enough and I won't touch it again.
I also did some work on the dress, but its also not finished yet. Also, earlier today I started to block out a gun holster that she will have on her exposed thigh. I still don't know how I will make it but I know that I will think of something.
For next week I hope to have the holster done and I hope to have started to work on the shoes. While I do know that having female spies in high heels is very cliche, I really like that look and I'm going for it anyways. I will make sure that they are not as ridiculous as stilettos, but my character will be wearing high heels.
That's all for now, thanks for reading!

So since last time I managed to finish the head by attaching the ear to it (see top render). It took me some time to make sure that all the edges would match up.
I have also started to work on the hair, which turns out takes a ton of time to do. What I have been doing is create a curve and then extrude along that curve. This allows me to control how the hair falls, but I also have to do multiple layers to make it have some substance. So far I finished the first layer and I'm about half way done on the send layer.
Hopefully by next week I will finish the hair and start working on the rest of the body. I want to finish the dress and start on the gun holster. Anyways, that's all for now and thanks for reading!

So since last week I have been working on the face, but I only managed to finish the mouth and the eye balls. I tried to start working on the ears, but I just couldn't bring myself to keep working on the head.
I did keep working a bit on the dress. I decided to make it a full length dress, but I don't know if I'm going to leave that way. I want to break up the shape of the dress a bit, but I still don't know how to do that. I will probably experiment a bit with the shape but for now this is what I have.
By next week, I will try to work on the dress a bit more and maybe even the shoes. I'm thinking of giving my character high heels, but I think that may be a bit of a cliche. Anyways, thanks for reading!
