I created a couple of base meshes recently to give me something to start with when sculpting heads and bodies. I thought I’d make them avaliable. I’ve also included a GLSL matcap material I created that works quite well for sculpting. You’re free to use them for whatever you want. If you just want the matcap you can download the image directly to use in whatever application you prefer. Here’s a sculpt I made with the bust basemesh:

Thanks for the meshes, Ben. Is that Stephen Fry?

Ben Simonds (Aug 18, 2011)

Yup. Or an attempt at him anyway,

Thanks, Ben! Very useful.

Well, I was able to recognize him, so I think you got it right. :)

Awesome Ben!

Thanks for the meshes.

One question.

How did you do the hair? I know it’s sculpted, but how did you start it out?

Ben Simonds (Aug 13, 2011)

I did the hair with zbrushes zpheres tools, but you could do the same thing by retopologising the general shape of the hair over the skull and then sculpting.

Thanks. I’m working on a sculpt and that looks like a good hairstyle for him.

Thanks again.

Your work is amazing!

Thanks for the model!
There is something puzzling. When I edit the model in Edit Mode it always stays symmetrical even though there is not mirror modifier or any symmetry I can identify. How are you doing this? :)
