Modelling the Hood of Lamborghini Gallardo

I am trying to model the hood. Problem is that the hood is having a groove. If I attempt to model the groove, it leaves a scar like a edge on even the supposed smooth part of the hood.

how to avoid that?

I have attached the Lambo’s hood and also the hood I was trying to model.

How did you model the hood?

Can you elaborate your question?

Show a wires version of the hood. Pointless to even guess if you can not look at poly flow. But experience tells me you have a long stretch of triangles (or even close quads) going down the hood from the end of the crease to the edge of the hood. You should terminate the crease with an edge loop at the bottom of the crease so it does not stretch out to the edge of the hood.

Take a look at this:

What I did was just delete two edge loops and then fan out the edges so you don’t have a concentration of edges creating your problem. Keep any edge tightening inside the loop of the crease. I added one as an example.
