I need to get the back half of the stick to follow the shape of the sphere. While the stick preserves its thickness. And the front half of the stick, closer to the camera, is not affected.
Seeing how the whole stick was sticking to the sphere like a flat sticker I thought it would be a matter of affecting only a vertex group, so I tried that. I also tried all the various choices in the Shrinkwrap mod, but without avail
After over a couple hours of trying this and that, I have to admit I could use some help.
