View Full Version : edge loop muscles...

where can I see where I have to do the cuts and edge loops to create muscles in a human model:wip:

ferncastro - thats something you have to decide for yourself. Just follow the flow/form of the muscles. There's probably a few good sites out there that will give you a better idea, do a search for Bat Raitt, I think he had a PDF that went into this, which included a few pics on the flow of edge loops etc

Hope that helps

Also, look at other peoples wireframes to get an idea.

That wiredepot is a pretty cool site, why haven't i come across that before... I've been wanting to get into sculpture with sculpey but we can't get it here in Ireland and it's proving difficult to get from anywhere else even - but that tutorial looks like exactly the ind of thing I've been looking for. Thanks for sharing the link!

And, in a bid not to come across as someone who's just hijacked a thread to thank someone else, here's a link to something that might help with your edgeloops:

sforsyth - Can't get sculpey in Ireland, thats rough! I know its pretty expensive over here in Australia, but its not hard to get. No probs regarding the links. Hope they help.
The sculpting forums are pretty cool, lots of very interesting topics.

evanM: Yeah, I was told that wax is the nearest thing you can get in Ireland. 60 euro a kilo too. Nasty. Thanks again anyway, I'll probably get a mate to bring it back from the States or somewhere next time soneone is over that way. Bummer though.

Here's that site with Bay's pdf file on edgeloops. Hope it helps.
