Hello fellow cartoon animators!!!

I wonder if you can help me.  After so many years of using Cartoon Animator with other characters, I decided to start creating my own custom 360 character heads, etc.

After carefully following the template for PSD rigging, when I do a "CALIBRATION" of my character's head to test it.  I am getting some strange results.
I have gone back and forward with the template and double checked my PSD file as well for correct placement of the head features bones "+", and I can't figure out what's going on with  the back hair and the eyes.  I did follow the PSD pipeline template properly.  It's probably something simple that I am missing.

What do you think is going on?  How can I fix this?

Thank you in advance for your time and help!  I attached an image showing what's going on.

Thanks, let me take a look and see if I can’t get a video up this weekend for you on it. I just need your written reply / consent to do so on my yotube channel. 

I actually enjoy this part the most to be honest BigGrin

You have my permission. The body is from the Reallusion characters, but the face I drew and trying to get the hang of it before I draw the body as well.  When do you think you will upload the video?  Thanks for your help.  I am trying to do an animation for a friend and I am super stuck. 

Maybe part of the problem is the way I am drawing the front hair to look parted on the side ( but almost the middle ). 
I think your video will be able to help a lot of people. The way I am implementing or drawing the hair is not working with the bones well. Especially the front and back hair. 
This also makes it harder to rig it as a 360 head.  Everything gets distorted when I play around with the "360 Head Creator" in CA4.

By the way, I love the way you teach and explain things. Thank you for helping others in your YouTube channel! Smile

Hi Jared, I hope you had a great weekend!  I was just following up to see if you had a chance to look at my character file.  Thanks!

Hi Jared,
No problem. I understand that you are busy.  My schedule gets crazy at times as well. Thank you for following up.
I think I private message you with the file or emailed it, but that's ok.  I am trying a different approach with my character rig.  If I continue to have issues, I can reach out to you again, if that's ok with you.

Best Wishes and thank you again for reaching out!
