Im trying to “carve” a company logo into a pumpkin Ive modeled and Im not have much luck.
Ive tried a couple of different techniques and none of them have exactly been successful.
I had originally thought to use retopo to project an svg curve onto the surface of my pumpkin but two issues were happening there: a) part of the projected mesh was actually being projected to the inside of the pumpkin and b) some of the curves werent being projected onto the pumpkin at all, indeed they seemed to project away from the pumpkin. Was I doing something wrong here, that was causing either of these issues?
Second I tried a boolean operation. but apparently the logo and the pumpkin were too complex. Blender locked up on me.
Third I tried a decal projected onto the surface. That however didnt look very realistic and was actually partially showing up on another pumpkin in front of the first one.
I really thought (continue to think) retopo would have been my best bet but unless Im doing something wrong as outlined above its just not wanting to co-operate.
Any help on this is, as always, highly appreciated.
