I am new to Blender, but have about 10+ years’ experience in other 3D apps, including Lightwave.
I’m trying to get up to speed in Blender and making simple shapes to get my feet wet.
I’m noticing wierd black areas or splotches that aren’t remedied by the command for making sure normals are aligned.
the obvious guess is that I’m new to blender, yet I can’t see any glaring blunders in my modeling.
Any tips to get me back on track would be appreciated.
here’s a pic of what I’m working with:
on the left is how it looks like in modeling window…a basic cup. at right is a render after hitting F12. the stuff around the perimeter of the base is what I’m talking about.
