Sample text

It happens sometimes, especially if your image plane is just a sketch. It's more important that the model be more structurally sound for later rigging. Now copy the thigh cylinder, then move that copy down to become the lower leg. Make sure you name all of the cylinders: UpperArm, LowerArm, UpperLeg, LowerLeg. Chapter 3 POLYGONS: HOW 2D BECOMES 3D 43 Step 7 Now create a sphere for the elbow, make copies, and place them at the wrist, knee, and ankle. Remember to keep their axes aligned along the arm and leg the same way the shoulder and hip spheres are.

Name it Hip. 42 Chapter 3 POLYGONS: HOW 2D BECOMES 3D Step 6 Starting on the side view, create a cylinder primitive. Size it and place it so it matches the upper arm limb and is in the middle of the shoulder sphere. Copy the cylinder, and place it on the forearm. Copy again, this time rotating and moving it to the thigh. Resize it to match. Notice that the hip joint as a ball joint would be awkward because of the angle of the thigh. Resize and move the hip joint. It may not match the picture exactly, but that's okay.

4). When you subdivide a mesh with good topology, you will be able to predict the smoothed outcome better. It will be easier to rig and pose with more accurate deformations. It is also important for applying texture to your model. Understanding topology is essential to creating good models. 4 Both of these meshes have the same number of polygons. Notice how deformed the mesh can get, and how the placement of each vertex affects the edges and polygons. Using Quads In Chapter 3 it was mentioned that it is a good idea to use only quads on your polygon mesh.
