Speed-model Deagle

I know that everyone and their dog has made a Desert Eagle before, but I haven’t and knew it’s challenging due to its interesting design.

Anyways, the general design was roughed out in half an hour, and fixed up the mesh over the next hour. The two grooves in the gun are my own; I thought it looked neat. :stuck_out_tongue:

Does anyone have a good method for cutting shapes out of a curved surface without killing the topology? (eg - fluting a barrel)

Blendercookie actually has a good tutorial on that, heres the link.

Thanks! I never knew about a few of those hotkey functions. Do you happen to know which key he hit to ‘rip’ the vertices from each other to fix the topology?
