View Full Version : Poles

09 September 2010, 03:40 PM
I am working on a male character and noticed that I have poles on the jawline which is bad, but I don't know how to fix it. Can anyone out there help me.

You may get more replies if you post this question in the modeling forum. I'm sure you can fix them with a little re-routing. You will need to post up some screen shots so people can see what the issues are or else it is very hard to help.

Yep, you will always have them but the art is to move them somewhere where they can't bite you!

Go to the subd forums, they have the ultimate discussion on poles, and geometry for head models that applies to all modeling. Our own Mister3d has done a great summary there.

I agree, poles are nasty little chaps (the geometry, not the people).
