Hi, I'm working on a tutorial, and I'm trying to figure out a how to rework the edge flow like in the tutorial.

Here is the tutorial: http://www.silo3d.com/Tutorials/User_Tutorials/tony_jung/HTML_files/tjnyc_3.htm

The bit that I'm interested in is the second half of this image:

I have attached the steps of what I think the tutorial is doing here. Does this look correct?

Thank you.

I am new to this, so I don't know if should be jumping in on this but I noticed no one else has so,. In all my studies I have seen that the resulting surfaces of a good edge rework still contain only 4 edges. I noticed that the two surfaces at the ends of your rework (total 4 surfaces) has five edges. I hope someone else can give some examples of what problems if any this may cause later in the models life.

This is my second post so if it is posted after someone else answers this I am sorry.
I had an attachment but can not add it yet. I will try later.

you are correct, basically spliting and deleting edges to form a new flow...

Thanks.

I used the trick earlier today while making a skirt for practice. So that it would bend at an angle along the hips rather than just straight across.

This learning process is really interesting. I'm at the part where I'm trying to see the larger patterns.
