Background Templates and Key Facial Zones
Background templates are digital images that can be loaded into your 3D application's workspace as background images. In Figure 2, they portray the structure of a chimp head. These particular templates highlight the key features on the chimp head, which are referenced as key facial zones. To get to this point, you need to create an initial design and divide the work into zones.
