View Full Version : Lips

06 June 2004, 04:15 PM
In the process of creating a high poly asian female head, and I've come across problems with the section of the mesh that connects the two lips. I'm using 3d studio max 5 with a meshsmooth modifier, and there's an odd kinda crease appearing, I assume it's because of the combination of the sharp corners and about 10 edges merging onto one vertex. Anyone got any advice on how I should be modelling this bit? Also, I'd be glad of any other comments/crits on it :)

It has been asked many times, you would find a reply on this board.

1 - Study lips shape/anatomy

2 - Add one more edge at the corners to manage the borders easier
