the racoon

i am beginning to learn blender 3d and i use blender noob to pro book on wikibooks
instead of using theire pictures of the wolf , i tried to model a racoon , with diffrent photos i had , here is the result , but i thing it is too smooth

i’d like to know how to make some edges more visible , even with subsurf plz
and i 'd like to know how to insert vertex or cut a face with a random edge (not only by 2 perpendicular edges like with the “subdivide tool”)

I am not sure what you mean by making some edges more visible, but you can cut selected faces and edges with the knife tool “k”-key in edit mode.

Hope this helps.

By the way, I really like your model!

thank you:)

by “making some edges more visible” i meant that when i apply “subsurf” everything just smooths down , is there a way to prevent some edges to become smooth?
(sorry for my english:spin:)


Alright, I see what you mean. I haven’t used it yet, but you can create creases using “shift-e” in edit mode with the edge/edges selected. You can read about the tool on this page…
(scroll down to “Weighted creases for subdivision surfaces”)

-Edit- You can also get the same effect by placing more edges where you want the crease.

yeah thats it!
thanks :smiley:
