View Full Version : Character modeling

06 June 2007, 02:54 AM
When I was about to use the Merge Edge Tool, I noticed on the chest of my character, there were dark thick lines. I checked on them and the vertices of the edges are merged. I canít figure out whatís making the dark lines but whatever it is, it messes up the look of my character when I smooth it out because it makes those edges prominent. Any of you guys know what could be causing those dark lines?

check your normals they are probably pointing in different directions. Either conform your normals or select all the faces on the head and reverse them so they point the same way as your body normals. Once you so that you could soften your normals. That should work.

An easy way to prevent this is to turn Off two sided lighting. This will show all the reversed normals as a really dark grey.
