I am trying to bake a normal map with Cycles, but no matter what I try, the results are always strange, and I am at my wit's end.

I keep getting weird results like this: https://s18.postimg.org/aq2e7tt21/Head_N.png

These are my bake settings:


High-Poly model:


Low-Poly model:


Any and all help much appreciated! This model is a project for a game development college course I am studying, just to clarify. :)

You need to activate smooth shading for your low-poly model.

Select your model, go to "Tool Shelf - Tools - Edit - Shading" and hit the "Smooth" button.
