Move the vertices from the front view to the side view

Hi all,

I would like you to help me to move the vertices from the front view to the side view of a head.

How to move the chin and cheek vertices (blue region on the picture) from the front view to the side view.
For the rest I think I could manage.

I have no background model for the side view.

Thanks for your help,


I may be misunderstanding your goal here, but to move vertices, select them and press G

I would like to move the vertices that are circled in the blue area to the Y axis.
(see the picture above)
Yours faithfully,


Well you select them, press G followed by the axis which in this case is Y. Move the mouse until you are happy with where they are and then press LMB (left mouse button) to confirm.

This is some unfortunate word choise because the vertices are where they are in 3D-space and if you just switch to the side view (Numpad-3) then of course they are also visible from the side…

I guess you mean something like: How can i build a 3D- face from this front view grid?

YOu can use quad view (CTRL-Q …believe…) to see this head from a top, camera/perspective, front and side (split th full in half to make you own top and side) and then select the vertices you want and move them where you want…
