How to Add a Proper Edge Loop in 2.5?

How do I add an edge loop to the areas in Yellow and Red? I’ve selected the edges and tried all of the “Edge” options but none seem to work. I want to create a loop where only where the red and yellow lines are.


The problem is that your topology isn’t right for this to work. For the inner edge, there’s no single and complete edge loop because you have poles in the corners. See the picture below for a topology that will fix this. I’ve indicated your poles in green. By adjusting the topology, you’ll be able to add the edge loops where you want.

This post has a pretty good overview of poles and loops.

Or you can watch some of Jonathan Williamson’s tutorials on and learn more about topology than you ever wanted to know :slight_smile:
