View Full Version : Modeling teeth/gums

06 June 2004, 03:41 AM
I've been working on my first 3D head lately, and..... I'm really not sure how to go about modeling gums and teeth for the mouth. Can anyone share any tips or tutorials or anything to give me guidance in this area? Any help is appreciated. I can upload pictures/wires of my model if needed.

It's only a matter of extruding the gums a few times and shape it up around the teeth(different objects).

I made a set for the Zbrush monster I did a while ago,it was the first time I did some and it turned out ok.

Just remember to have at least Molars and Incisors then try to make them different according to the anatomy of your subject.

Both those links are very helpful. Thanks alot guys =).

And thanks for not being rude and just simply saying, "Use CGTalk's search... duh."

Veehoy, thanks for the link in 3d Total,
as I open the link it says "as in ...PREVIOUS CHAPTER..",
The link to the previous chapters doesn't work, does it?

No, you are right, it does not. But if you will find the previous chapter on 3dTotal under Tutorials/Project Overviews/"Modelling the Human Figure, chapter 6" by Peter Ratner, around the middle of the page...
