Kneesocks is solid. Looks great.

My problem is that without character sheets, I'm not that great modeling characters.

Alright, last night I successfully completed my first 3D model designed for games. I learned triangles are encouraged for game models, whereas quads are encouraged for high res animation.

Just a friendly tip, SZ.

See those vertices along the edges? Try to align them in smooth curves, like this, from all perspectives -- front, side and top -- horizontally and vertically.

The reason behind this is that, following these principles, you're likely to get a smoother, better and more accurate representation of the reference image.  :)

If it helps, always try drawing the edges on paper with a pen, so you can figure out where to apply it digitally.

Anime anatomy is obtuse though, and hard to map out.

I agree. But you can be imaginative here, and not be bound to the image reference strictly. Appleseed: Ex-Machina is an excellent example of what i mean here, because even those models follow the same principles: smooth vertices and edges. If the lines go haywire in the wireframe, it's gonna result in some crooked models with bumpy surfaces. XD

I'm wondering if it'd just be more efficient to shape a subdiv-smoothed cube.

You can, yes! But the principles I mentioned apply there too. That's because the passive vertices in the subdivs depend on the active vertices that you normally manipulate in order to maintain their form.

Hmm, I could try screencasting for you if you like, though I'm not sure if my computer is very good at doing so. Where's your model again where I can download?

I got stumped when I got to the forehead, unfortunately.

Hmm! Rather than create faces individually, did you try modelling with a subdivided cube (which should, technically, become sufficiently rounded to work with)? That should help you model faster and better, because you already have a good structure to work with.

I could try again, but when I did it yesterday, it made me cringe a bit.

I continued with what you saw in the last screencap. Since this is meant to be low poly I used tris to close off loops that would've made it complicated to work with. I tried smoothing the edges as best I could so she wouldn't have any sharp edges. Also: no ngons, tris, or 6+-sided junctions.
